How to Choose the Best Domain For Your Online Business

November 24, 2011 by  Filed under: Domain 

Choosing the best domain name is not the first thing you do when starting an online business. You first have to research your keywords and find the best combination of keywords for your website.

It is hard to find any good names that are left and you usually have to use a combination of words to best describe what it is that your site will do – what solution do you provide and if applicable where do you do it? Some combination of those words will make the best domain name for your website. The idea is to find words that people are searching for quite a bit but there still are not that many sites out there with that information.

To start with use some keyword research tools to find out what people are looking for. The AdWords Keyword Tool and Wordtracker are the most popular. These tools will tell you how many people are searching for your words or concept. Start with broad terms that describe your niche or topic. Millions of people searching may look good initially but you also have to look for how many people use those words in their domain name or website titles. You can do that by just doing a Straight Google search with the keyword in “quotation marks”. If there are less than 10000 site out there using the words then you may be onto something.

This is just really the beginning of researching the best domain name. There is more software that can help you research and analyze your results. The best that I have found comes with a Site Build it! Website and eBusiness system.
