does this count as exact match?
Note: This is not an intentional cross post. My first one somehow got posted to the private SEO forum, which has had no new posts in the last 30 hours. Whereas this forum has had 32 posts during that time. Therefore I'm reposting here so it will be read and answered rather than ignored. I know you're trying to run a clean forum here, and I apologise for this error, but I can't delete the original.

I'm trying to build my first website with a view to selling someone else's existing product, as a test of a niche which I could eventually enter into with my own product range.
I've found a main keyword with 40,000 exact search matches per month and low competition.
However, keyword.com is taken (and org and net - all three are squatted on).
I got keyword-online.com instead.
I take it that this is not an exact match, but instead a 'phrase-match'?
Does that mean it won't get any boost in the Google SERP? In which case, should I just take my chances with a brand domain instead, and just rely on my content and backlinks to try to rank for that main keyword?
