My website niche is video games and I am thinking about changing my domain name to some that contains either video game or games keyword. But before I change my domain name I want to know if in terms of seo keywords in domain name important. I have noticed that almost all high ranking websites for keyword video games their domain name is composed of those keywords?

Yes it was working before but now Google is giving less weight to keywords in domain names when indexing websites. But if you can register a domain name that contains keywords you are targeting it will definitely benefit your SEO.

I agree, before it used to be very important to have a keyword matching domain name, but in the modern age of SEO, it is not as important anymore. It is better to focus on high quality, original content.

Now, these days exact match domain are not important factors in SEO to rank the keyword in SERPs. There are so many other factors also responsible for ranking is SERPs.

No need. But, if you're writing about technology then go for tech related domain name like techbuzz, techallow etc.. And if you want to do about health related then go for like healthy news etc .
