How to Select Best Domain Name ?
I have told you earlier that the name or domain name of the blog is very important for your blogging success. So below are some tips, which will help you in a good and better domain name selection.
1- Main Topic
First you have to think about the main topic of your blog, about which you willing to share in your blog. It can be any topic, like technology, fashion, travel, food, cooking, etc. Choose the topic that you have the most knowledge about. For example, your interest is in technology and you want to start blogging about technology. So your domain name should be a word related to technology, by which people will know that this blog is about technology. There are some popular technology blogs like techcrunch, techpp, etc.
2 – Don’t Copy Popular Domain Name
There are also some people who make a new domain name by adding something to the popular domain name. Those people think that if this name is popular then my name will also become popular, But actually it does not happen. If you want to make your identity with the identity of others, then your identity might be effect negatively .
Just like our blog name is hackaccess.com, and you change this name to hackacess.com, then it does not mean that as much as people like this blog, your blog should do as much appreciated. You should have something different, so that you can create a new identity of yours.
3 – Always Purchase TLD ( Top – Level Domain )
Top Level Domains are easy for peoples to remember them easily. If you want to make your blog for the peoples and the whole country, then buy .com, .net or .org. com is the best and popular, because people mostly think if any domain name is .com then it will be genuine. If you want to keep it limited to your country only, then you can choose any country wise domain, like .in, .uk, .us, etc. .co.in, .co.us is also a country wise domain, but it is not so popular.
TLD Domain is also help you to get approval of Google Adsense. Click Here – How To Get Easily Google Adsense Approval 2020
4 – Domain Name Not More Than 3 Words
If you are a regular Internet user, then you must have noticed that, most of the popular websites name is in 2-3 words. It is not a compulsory that your name should also be in 2-3 words. You can also do more. But the short name is easy to remember and easy to type in URL field.
Try to find out if your domain name is under 12 letters. hackaccess is in 10 letters, which is the best and easy to remember.
5 – Use Google Search Tool
Use the words of the same topic that your blog is in, you can do this task easily through Google Search Tool. You can easily search your blog related topic from Google. Through which you will know that how many such blogs are there, and how they are named. This will help you in domain name selection. From Google you will get information about what people search for. If you give your blog’s name after some search keywords, it is even better. This will help you in visitor lane.
6 – Easy In Pronunciation
It is not necessary that your blog name should be in 2 to 3 words only and you should do it related to your topic. You just have to keep in your mind that people can easily remember the name you have selected for your Domain. labnol.org, which is India’s most popular technology blog, has no meaning. But it is small and easy to remember. If you want, you can also take a unique name like this.
7 – Give Some Time To Think About Domain Name
It is not that something came to your mind and you immediately bought the domain name of the same name. You should think at least 100 times before registering any name, so that you do not have any problem with that name in future. There are so many peoples who buy a domain name and after blogging for a few days think of changing it. This is also true, I have done this many times before. So my advice is, do not make the mistake that I have made.
