01 Aug Key Steps To Picking A Great Domain Name
Whether you are a freelance blogger, own a pet store, or have another type of small or medium business, a great domain name is always good to. Having seen hundreds of business launch websites online, we know what it takes to create a great and memorable domain name.
Your ‘domain’, which is also known as your website address, is often the point at which people will enter your website. Not only is it key to make a good impression, but it’s also important for search engine optimization (SEO).
Here are some tips for coming up with an optimal domain name:
1. Ensure it’s easy to spell
Try not to use slang language or made up terms.
2. Keep it short
Shorter means it’s easy to remember!
3. Avoid numbers or hyphens
Numbers and hyphens can be hard for users to remember.
4. Make the address broad to facilitate future growth
A good example would be amazon.com, who used this domain rather than say BuyBooks.com (they started off just seeing books!!). This ‘broader’ domain basically lets them sell anything!
5. Make its catchy
It’s time to stand out! With so many websites on the internet, it’s a good idea for your site name to be catchy, so that people will remember it…and tell their friends!
6. Create an SEO friendly URL
We’ve left the most importune one to last! An SEO-friendly web address that includes keywords and geo-location can be a game changer for driving organic traffic to your site. Think long the lines of “www.DublinPlumber.ie”.
