New Research: Keyword domains still work, despite what Google says | CanIRank Blog

KEY FINDINGS

Using each of these data points, we can put together a fairly nuanced picture of how keyword domains perform differently than non-keyword domains.

  • Keyword domains rank on average 11% higher than brandable domains
  • Brandable domains needed an average of 40,000 more links to hit #1, and 35,000 more links to reach the Top 10
  • Brandable domains needed 69% higher Domain Authority and 22% higher Page Authority to rank in the Top 10
  • Keyword domains were able to hit #1 with half as much content, and only using the keyword half as frequently
  • Looking at all Ranking Factors, it’s clear that keyword domains rank more easily due to higher Website Relevancy and Website Ext Relevancy scores
