Selecting a best domain name is the first step to success in blogging and online marketing. Many people ignore and underestimate to select a good domain name, which is never good for your blog/website. I consider it a 50% success to choose a right domain and this is your first step to success.

Things you need to consider for a good domain name.

Picking a domain might sound hard at first, but it is not when you use the simple metric that we created for you which assist you in the evaluating process and make the decision much easier.

To pick a good domain name is really hard in the start but it’s easy if you use a simple way. You need to consider the following things and decide a good domain name.

Keywords

Keywords — the most important step in the process to decide a best domain name. A domain name contains most related keywords to your blog site will rank your site higher in search engines. Popular keywords like “web hosting” in webhosting.com is hard to get. But think first what is your site about. For Example I wanted to launch a blog on the tribal people’s lifestyle and true stories, to feature tribal people. I decided a domain name as “tribalhumans.com”.

Branding names always better than keywords focused names.

Remember one thing — After you decide the topic of your blog site, Your users and readers should memorize it easily. Never choose a complicated and lengthy domain name. — If you can’t choose a good domain name with the keywords, decide a catchy domain name. Google is a search engine, it could be as “searchengine.com” but the company picked Google, today it dominates the internet.

Domain names length & hyphens.

It’s good if you decide a shorter domain name but never choose a name like mmob.com (make money online blogy), for example. Instead of MakeMoneyOnline.com you can choose another catchy domain name, suppose webmoney.com. Sometimes you maybe think about the use of hyphens, such as make-money.com. It’s not bad but I would advise you to avoid ‘hyphens’.

Always choose .com extension.

There have been so many domain name extensions introduced in the recent years like .net, .info, .tv, .me, and country code extensions as .pk, .in, .cn and .us etc. Still I always love .com — it’s still dominates the market.

But is your domain is not available in the .com extension, don’t stuck to the .com but go for some other extension. I wanted to launch “Tribal Post” whereas the tribalpost.com was already taken, so I picked the tribalpost.pk and I love it. — But many people still type tribalpost.com when they want to visit my site tribalpost.pk
