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.

Moderator, removed old thread. ~Snakeair

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?

Thanks.

No, as long as the domain name contains your keyword with other meaningful word its good for SEO point of you. You can use that having primary keyword in the domain does help.

Thanks for the replies.

Yes, I agree. However, it's my understanding that (at the moment) an EMD can sometimes make the difference between being on the first/second page, as opposed to being on page three or below. I'd like any free small boost I can get because I really just want to test the traffic at this stage, without spending too much money.

Although not an exact match, if you have the keyword in there it will have significant SEO value.

What i would suggest in this case would be to add a letter in front. Example if you are targeting 'example' then go with a domain as 'examples' or 'examplez' on your domain registration process.

IMO domain name should represent the brand name because site may rank later or sooner but this is only thing that gonna help to get a recognition in the market later. Also it is not sure when Google may took this out from its strategy so enjoy to being original, yourself

Exact match gives exact search volume of particular keyword . That is why at the time of keyword research always choose exact match.
