Take the example of Hotels.com. It ranks higher compared to most of its competitors only on account that the domain has the keyword “hotels”. But don’t worry if you cannot get a keyword rich domain. Don’t try to get a long keyword domain just for the sake of having a keyword rich domain. Remember, it should be memorable as well.

So what can you do? All you need to do is to have the keyword in your page URL. If you are trying to rank your page abc.com for Red Canvas Shoes, then your page URL should look something like abc.com/red-canvas-shoes. This is your first step towards a better search ranking.

But if you have the money to go for a memorable keyword domain, by all means, go for it. All the best with your next domain name search.
