During an AskGooglebot session, one SEO professional asked John Mueller whether or not a .jobs domain would help you rank for jobs.
He answered that no, you don’t get a bonus for ranking a .jobs domain.
He also explains that just because there’s a keyword in a domain name, it doesn’t signify that that domain is more relevant than others that might come up in search.
It’s also worth noting that businesses evolve over time, and that moving domains is difficult. He believes it’s better to choose a domain that will help you over the long haul, rather than selectan exact-match domain that will only help you short-term.
One example he posited was a domain name containing the keywords ‘blue widgets.’. If you’re initially offering blue widgets, then begin selling red widgets, how will you offer those widgets on a ‘blue widget’ website?
Don’t focus on exact-match keywords on the domain. Instead, work on building up a high-quality website that you can use in the long term for all of your offerings.
