Picking The Best Domain Names

November 24, 2011 by  Filed under: Domain 

The best domain names are easy to spell and remember. This may help.. say your domain name out loud. The best domain names are those that people can remember, because if your visitors can remember it, they are more likely to come back. The best domain names sound professional. People are impressed by quality and value, but above all else, they expect professionalism. The best domain names are short, descriptive (such as your company name or product), and easily memorized. If you do not already have a company or other name selected for your site, then it is often a good idea to make your domain name the brand for the site. The best domain names are based on a recognized brand or a descriptive short word or a well-known acronym. A good way to ensure a short, descriptive and easy to remember name is to register not one but several names.

There are several top-level domains to choose from, including .com, .org, .net, and .biz. Because some people may remember the name incorrectly, I also registered many other domain names such as AttorneyAdvertisingBlog.com, LawFirmAdvertisingBlog.com and others, all of which will bring the visitor to Lawyer-Advertising-Blog.com.

The best domain names still end with .com so pick a domain name with a .com extension or what is considered to be a top level domain. Domains that end with .com are easier to remember. The best domain names are short and catchy. Many good two words combinations have been taken now, so you might have to go for three word combinations. The best Domain names are short, catchy, memorable, and easily roll off the tongue. A name that is descriptive and easy to remember will easily attract hundreds of visitors to your site.

While selecting the domain name care should be taken that it is good. Good for the website and good for people promoting it. Because as we have seen in the selection of a good name, an improper domain name can cause lot of confusion and eventually defeats the very purpose the website.

Search engine optimization, and seo.

Search engine conflicts of interest.. Direct navigation competes with search engine usage. Search engines create new algorithms regularly that give weight to various aspects of a website in different ways. To achieve the most relevant listing of results for their users most online businesses will still be found through the search engines, so this may be a factor to consider.

Search Engines today are a key element to driving traffic to our names and essentially allow certain websites to be discovered. There are vast amounts of information and domain names that are essentially hidden to the world simply because webmasters do not take the steps to publish and promote quality information. Search engines index your site and rank it for relevance against terms people search for online. In order to maximize your sites exposure, consider including a relevant search term in your domain.

Remember, search engines rely heavily on relevance when calculating your link popularity score. Owning the world’s longest domain name might be cool, but long and difficult to type names are not a good idea.

Web hosting and domain names.

Web hosting is the company you choose to make your site available to the Internet for viewing. Once your name has been purchased, you have the choice of either keeping it there and letting them host your site or transfer your name to a host you might already be using. How difficult is it to transfer a domain name? It’s very easy.

Keywords and domain names.

How many times are these keywords searched? You need to do your home work before you purchase your domain name.

Instead of your brand name or company name you could also use keywords for your domain name. This could land you better search engine results. If you’re going to use your domain name for your main business website it’s best to pick a domain name that is closest to your brand or company name especially if you’ve been in the industry for some time. People have already recognized the name of your company. This will greatly help you with your marketing strategies both online and offline since you’ll only be promoting one name or brand. Besides it will be easier to familiarize people if you’re promoting the same name both in and out of the internet.
