Verisign just published a report that shows that keyword-rich domain names matching a search query are more likely to receive a click on the search results.
Verisign looked at the click-through rates of the top 20 search results for 11 million search queries. Results that did not have any matching keywords in the second level domain had a 12.44 percent click rate. Those with one matching term were clicked 21.79% of the time, and two or more words 25.30 percent.
