This may be one of those questions that has no real definitive answer

 

Lets say I do a search on google for milk bottles.

 

There are two sites found Both are blank sites , no enhancements they are both on the same isp both same server Identical in fact except for the name

 

one is http: //milkbottles.com

 

the other is http: //blank.com/milkbottles/

 

which one would be placed higher in the list of results of sites found?

 

If the milkbottles.com is placed higher does that prove that a domain matching the name searched is preferable? or "is it not as simple as that....."

Google dont release that sort of information, and there is so much misinformation spread among "seo experts" that you cant really believe anything that they say about that type of thing.

 

If the sites are identical then google would probably only show one of them and hide the other identical results with that link that shows how many identical ones it hid, as its common for sites on hosts to also be accessible thru a non domain link for when people dont want to pay SSL or similar.

If everything else about the sites were equal then the one with the key word rich domain would rank higher.
