Q: Does exact match domain have any impact on SEO now?

Does exact match domain have any impact on SEO in 2013? I read from other course stating that the results are very positive too if using an international domain, within a geographical target. It is done by setting the preferred region using the ‘geographical targeting’ feature within Google Webmaster Tools. What's your opinion?

Yes - it is good to have an exact domain. It is not as powerful as before but still have huge impact. If your site is located in UK - then you MUST buy domain. If your business is in London, then try to find a server in London - it will save a lot of your time + improve your overall performance + will help you get in top of Google in much shorter period of time!!

Do not forget to put in Web Master Tools the geographical location! If you want to target the whole World - put "unlisted"
