    just one question to make. I’ve often heard that it is beneficial to have a Exact matching Domain. Is it true? and to how much extent does it effect on the ranking.

      It depends but it is beneficial to your content marketing strategy if you have one in place. Like one of my project I am currently working on. I had an exact match domain name for that project along with the country name at the end of it and in few weeks I’m sitting firm on the front page for all major keywords linking to the website across the continent. But when I conducted my research, I got to know that all that happened because I have a good content habit – I write well about the project and use variations of words that best talks about the business without considering SEO as my target. The more update the website was, the better Google trust it and serve its contents on its platform for all major queries.

      So, lets forget all the permutation and all Google ranking and SEO tricks out there, get your EXACT MATCH DOMAIN and also put in the effort to get the result that you desired.

      That’s the way to go!

      Thanks for your time here Farhan 🙂
