How to choose the best domain name  Reply with quote  

The domain name isn't a major factor in ranking or in the eyes of SEO, but the choosing of the domain name can be really difficult because there are a lot of already taken domains, and free domains aren't always the best. So, I will give a few advices to make your select more easily: first all you have to choice a domain name which is easy to remember and try to get the domain of the country you want to target.
Another important thing you have to know is that even your site is about some generic work of your business, the domain name has to be small and simple.
Before you proceed to buy a domain name, first you have to study which are the most popular used keywords on search engines.

Thanks

Choosing your own domain name is very important and can be critical to your success as a network marketer. Take your time and choose the right one.

Why is it important for you to choose a domain name you are happy with? You need to realize that once you start your business and/or have a lot of customers you will not be able to change your domain name. If you do you will lose all of the advertising exposure for the previous domain name and you will look unprofessional to all your customers.

To set up a domain name you need to find a domain hosting company. There are plenty of hosting companies you can find on the internet and buying your own domain name is not very expensive. You can usually buy domains for $5-$10 a piece, per year.

"Mike's domain registration rules:" Rule #1: keep it simple. You want to find a domain name that is easy to say, easy to spell, and easy to remember. This is not optional. If you can't find an address that fits all three of these qualifications, keep looking.

If you are giving your website address to someone over the phone or to a group on a conference call, there can be no room for misinterpretation or spelling errors which means you need to follow the next piece of advice.

Rule #2: Register plural and hyphenated versions. You want to register all plural and hyphened versions of your domain name of choice in order to capture anyone who might misspell the name, and to protect yourself from competition who will intentionally register any domains similar to yours.

I have found that having a keyword based domain name is really important when a site is new but as a site gets older and gains PR its less relevant. A PR5 site will come up even without the keywords in the domain name!

If a site with the keyword/s in the name is in the number one position, it is difficult if not impossible to move them off it.

I'm afraid for many keyword searches an exact domain domain will often come top. Google, Bing or Yahoo.

Sound unique  Reply with quote  

Too many go for an extremely generic sounding domain name. Its then very dificult to stand out from the crowd and to be memorable. Go for something unique.

It may not look required sweating too much over registering domain names that are consisted of a few characters or terms. What really is important nowadays is building links for the websites regardless of their domain names specifications and also trying to be a professional webmaster since when people arrive on your homepages, generating sales and making money would be very important.

My recommendations, don't get anything but a ".com", and a good alternative to a keyword domain is a brandable domain. Like tracker said, something memorable and unique might take you farther than a boring KW domain.

I like including your main keywords in your domain name would be helpful for ranking purpose. and try to short and simple domain don't go with long domain name!!

People do believe in the domain name power for SEO. That is not correct. Domain name will never approve or hurt your SEO. Content and backlinks are much more important

Yes. Domain name is really important for SEO. The domain name system is originally created for the benefit of humans and own unique identity! I think domain name is very important to the success of our website..!
