I am sure you do not want to do the same mistakes.
The biggest mistake what webmasters or bloggers do is ignoring the importance of right domain name.
A good SEO compatible domain can make your blog or site rank higher in the search engine and a bad SEO domain can destroy your online reputation. So, it is really necessary that you should choose a good SEO domain name for your website or blog.
Today you will learn what you should consider when choosing a good SEO domain name for your website or blog.
Point to remember for Choosing Good SEO Domain Name
When it comes to select a domain name, it is always good that you should choose a domain name that is short and easy to type and easy to remember. It is also good for word of mouth and even online advertising. Take for example the domain name google.com, it is easy to remember and it is also unique. You can also take mansioncasino.com as another example. Mansion Casino being an internet casino site has the word casino to make it easy to remember and well associate it with its core business.
Confusing words in a domain name may lead your readers to visit some other website.
People never find easy to type those domains which are confusing.
2) Keyword rich domain
When choosing and SEO friendly domain name your focus should be on taking keyword rich domain name which also represents your brand. There are two major benefits of choosing a keyword rich domain name.
- a) Search engines consider domain as a ranking factor.
- b) Keyword in domain name attracts more anchor text linking.
There is a huge misconception among domain buyers that if a domain name is not available they can use a hyphen in the domain name to use the same keyword. Using a hyphen in domain name shows spammy behavior. It is not good to use one or more hyphen in domain names. I always recommend you to stick with one-word domain name such as moz.com.
4) Top Level Domains (TLDs)
When you go to a domain registrar website and type a domain name to buy, you get various options to choose between Top Level Domain names such as .com, .org, .net. It is always good that you choose.Com. .Com is always known as best SEO value TLD. Other domain name extensions like .info, .biz, .name, .ws, etc are known as low-quality TLDs, so you should not use them.
5) Domain registration length
If you are thinking that domain registration length matters for SEO then you should think again. Matt Cutts has also said that there is no search engine which has confirmed that it uses registration length as SEO scoring factor.
Following above rules always help you to choose a good domain name for your website or blog. If you still have any question, feel free to ask me via comments.
