I’ve already told you about basic things to consider before you start a blog and also gave you tips on finding a good niche topic for your blog. Now, I think my readers are familiar with the blogging concept. I feel that selecting a domain name is a tedious job (for me at-least ), so in my today’s article I am going to give you some tips on selecting a good domain name. Lets start :
Note : Do read this article of mine where I’ve written about few factors to consider before buying a domain name.
Below is a list of characteristic of a good domain name. If you’ve selected a domain name, you can identify whether its good or not using following parameters.
Always ends with .Com
Well, this is my own perception, I personally think that a GOOD domain name MUST have .Com as extension, it is my first priority.
Should match the topic of your blog
A good domain name should match the topic on which your blog is. Like if I’ve a blog on technology then the domain name can include keywords like tech, geek, info etc. In short, it must match to your blog name. Like, my blog is about blogging ideas, so I’ve included the keyword “blogging ideas” in my domain name. So you must do a keyword research before choosing a domain name. If you want you can also choose professional search engine optimization services to know best suited keyword for your blog niche.
Easy to remember
I define a good domain name that is easy to remember. It must not have tough English words or words that does not makes any sense like www.gghju.com. So, a good domain name should be easy to remember.
A good domain name should not include hyphen(-) in it, for example www.creative-blogging-ideas.com. There are two reasons we generally do not count such domain name as good because :
- They are not good in terms of SEO as compared to non hyphen(-) domains
- They are difficult to spell
They are short
Well, this point does not fit in my own domain name because it is too long . Your domain name should not be too long, it should be less than 18-20 characteristics.
These were few characteristics of a food domain name, so while selecting a domain name do consider these properties once. I am waiting for your comments and feedback.
