"What's The Big Fuss About Long Domain Names?"

Written by Alan Yap

Continued from page 1

Don't get me wrong. I'm not against registering for long domain names. I just feel that we should see things in perspective. If you're getting a long domain name inrepparttar hope of securing a high search engine placement, err... based onrepparttar 108339 facts, please don't expect miracles.

So what should we look for when choosing a domain name? I use a simple "3 Es" guide:

1. Easy To Remember Yahoo is certainly easier to remember than AltaVista. No surprise why Yahoo is doing a LOT better.

2. Easy To Spell If you have a long domain name, be careful. One spelling mistake by a potential visitor is all you need to lose him forever.

3. Easy To Pronounce If your domain name is hard to pronounce, how do you expect people to spreadrepparttar 108340 word and tell others about it?

What dorepparttar 108341 3 Es have in common? They make things simple for your visitors! Our world is complex enough. We don't need another complex domain.

Must your domain name be relevant to your site content? Not necessarily. What hasrepparttar 108342 name "Yahoo" got to do with a search engine or a directory? And is there any real connection betweenrepparttar 108343 words "Amazon" and "books"?

Selecting a domain name is an extremely important step. So do it carefully.
