As you know Google’s diversity updated in June 2019. This gave more opportunities to different websites to rank by limiting the number of times a single domain can appear in a single SERP. You can’t rank a single website more than two times in a SERP. This will give a chance to small websites to rank on Google.


Start with an exact-match domain name. Most of the people say that exact-match domain name doesn’t work as they used to be it’s ok but they still work. Now creating a domain that exact match to the service or product you are selling is a great way to rank on SERP. This will work for the local and long-tail keyword. It doesn’t work for the head term but if your site gets little or no traffic scoring an exact match domain name could help you to get high on SERP. When you are looking for an exact match domain you can also look for misspelling names as well.
