FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: My domain name doesn't need to rank by itself just preferably be related to my niche? The content and titles I use will help me rank in different areas?
A: Technically, your domain name should represent your brand and it should somewhat tells your site visitors what your site is about.
For example, if you are in the health and fitness niche, then you would want a domain name that is something like "fitnessgain" or "MrLean" or something like that. You don't need a keyword in the domain. On the flip side, you don't want your domain to be "financingguru" if you are in the fitness niche right?
Domain is what helps you build a brand, but it wouldn't rank unless you have content in it. Content is what tells Google or other search engines about what your domain relates to. If your domain is talking about everything under the sun, like a news site, Google won't rank you unless they know that you are a credible source.
So to answer your question, yes, your content and titles is what gets your ARTICLES to rank. Your domain name will not rank on any keywords other than those that your domain name contain.
