Using same website title as domain name?

Discussion in 'Keywords' started by JohnThornhill-Online, Jul 31, 2019.

    Hi this is my 1st post and I have a question.

    I was lucky enough to get a really good keyword based domain name for my website.
    Lets say my keywords were "eating bananas is good"
    I got a domain EatingBananasIsGood with . com domain name extension.
    SEMrush
    Now my question is whats better:
    - use the same keyword phrase as I have also for title of the website (the title and the h1 tag would therefor be "Eating Bananas Is Good")
    - or should i use something that's not completely the same for the h1/title (for example: "5+ Amazing Reasons Why Eating Bananas Is Good")

    Thanks for the reply and good day to you all!

    I would use 'Eating Bananas Is Good' for your page but then create a blog post '5+ Amazing Reasons Why Eating Bananas Is Good'.

    Using keywords in domain name is good idea. I am not sure if Google understand CamelCase name, but it understands separators like -. About the question. Second option is better. In this case you can use two key words in H1.

    Try to relate both of them by using few similar terms in between but don't make each of them the copy of another. Using keywords in domain name is a good idea as well.

    I would use a related (but different) keyword phrase for the website title. I wouldn't use a number as I think it would serve to limit the site's content in the eyes of the viewer. As Ruin18 suggested, I would reserve "number of" for post or individual page titles.

    I'd say go for the version 2, give it a month or so, then try the version 1 to see which title performs better. As important as <h1></h1> is, it won't help your site rank higher alone. Whatever you put between <title></title> and <meta name="description" content=""> and the overall quality of your site content will determine how well it will rank. Nothing new, but I thought I'd remind you about that.

    Go with Ruin18 suggestion.

    I really cannot remember the last time I saw google ranking homepage of a website, unless I specifically searched for the website name itself.
    It probably only uses homepages as index pages, which they originally were supposed to be, an index of other important pages.

    You already have an exact match domain in "EatingBananasIsGood.com", so would suggest a title that complements it. By repeating the domain name in the title to me, appears like a bit of a waste, and I would rather use "related keywords". As suggested, you can have your first few blog posts highlighting your exact match keyword e.g.

    • Eating Bananas Is Good - Proven By Dieticians
    • Want To Be Healthy? - Eating Bananas Is Good

    All the best with your ranking efforts.
