How to choose a domain name for your blog/site?
Choosing a domain name can be frustrating sometimes. Definitely it’s not an easy task to choose a domain name. Today I am going to give you some tips that will help you in choosing the best domain name for your website.
Choose the Right Keyword
The first thing you should do is choosing the right keyword. Keep in mind to use the keyword on which you are making your website in the name of your domain. Go to google Keywords tool and do keyword research. Aim for the keywords which are having the highest searches in your preferable country. Choose 2-3 keywords and select the best from them then.
Choose .com domains
There are many extensions to choose from. I prefer you to choose .com extension only. .com extension is important because it will reflect the reputation of your brand, company. However if you are not interested in the reputation of your brand you should just neglect this point. If you are planning to run your website for a long time you should always choose a .com domain name.
Make it easier to type
Choose a domain name which people can easily type. Don’t make people confuse with the domain name. You should not include some of these alphabets in your domain name, “q,z,x,c,p”. Try not to include these alphabets in your domain name.
Make it easier to remember
Choose a domain name which is easily remember able by your readers. Choose the domain which reflects the content present on your website so that everyone can easily learn your domain name. Don’t choose a difficult domain name which your friend can’t remember and make you feel embarrass in front of your other friends.
Keep the domain short
It is always preferable to keep your domain name short. Shorter domain names are good for SERP. Moreover if you are having a business and you want to print the name of your website on your business cards it will be easy to manage your domain name there.
Avoid Copyright Infringement
This is one big mistake which can cause you a lot of trouble. Keep a check on the domains which are restricted to buy or which can land you in trouble. You can visit a website www.copyright.gov and search your domain name there and know if it’s restricted or not.
Don’t insert numbers and hyphens
It is preferable no to insert hyphens and number in your domain name as it will not make your domain look professional. Sometimes it can be confusing to remember the domain names which include hyphens or numbers. So avoid hyphens and numbers in your domain name.
Try Ajax domain selection tool
There is one tool named Ajax domain section tool which will help you to know the availability of a domain name. Ajax is not a service which will help you in buying a domain name but will help you in generating suggestions and will help you in determining the availability of a domain name.
