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

Written by Alan Yap

The word is out. You can now register domain names of up to 67 characters. This is going to shoot your ranking way up onrepparttar search engines. Because if you stuff all your keywords into your domain name, search engines are simply going to love your site. Or so they say...

But is that reallyrepparttar 108339 truth?

No point speculating. Let's do a little test...

Go to your favorite search engine, say AltaVista. Key in your search term, say "website promotion." Look atrepparttar 108340 top 10 rankings, closely.

How many of these top rankings actually haverepparttar 108341 full term "website promotion" in their domains?

No hype, just facts.

Call me a natural sceptic if you want. Whenrepparttar 108342 news hitrepparttar 108343 town, with allrepparttar 108344 "Special Announcements" flying everywhere, urging people to "go grab a new all-you-can- stuff keyword rich domain name and emerge tops in search engine ranking," I was not at all moved. I believe this is too simplistic an approach to getting high search engine placements:

1. Besides keywords in domain names, search engines look at a few other factors for relevancy. In fact, this is what Don Dodge, AltaVista's Director of Engineering said: "Keywords inrepparttar 108345 domain name do not help much in ranking. We look at half a dozen factors in ranking. The words onrepparttar 108346 page, their frequency and position onrepparttar 108347 page, are still amongrepparttar 108348 most important factors."

2. Search engines are constantly evolving. Once they find out that such keyword-stuffed domain names are content-poor sites with low relevance, they are going to come up with new rules to preclude such sites from gettingrepparttar 108349 top spots.
