Domain Name - How To Pick OneWritten by Halstatt Pires
Continued from page 1
The third issue concerns nature of your site and search engine optimization. If you are shooting for a particular keyword phrase, you may be better off using that keyword phrase in your domain name. Google, for instance, looks at domain name when evaluating a site. If words in your domain name are spaced with dashes, many believe it will help in ranking process. This is why you see so many xxx-xxxx-xxx.com domain names on net. If your business focuses on a very specific area, strong consideration should be given to using relevant keywords in your domain name.
Finally, your domain name should end in ď.comĒ and I donít want to hear any argument or see any rolling of eyes. The simple fact is that when people think of sites, they always type in .com. Yes, there are other extensions and .us, .net, .biz, etc., may seem unique, but it kills your traffic. Pavlov and his dog experiments had it right. People have been mentally conditioned to type in .com, so donít select any other ending. If you do, a smart competitor will register .com version of your name to get some free traffic. If you are really lucky, a porn site will do it!
Take a breath before you select a domain name. Like a spouse, it can be either a good or bad choice.
