How To Select A Domain Name

Selecting a domain is very important, especially if you are planning to do SEO (Search Engine Optimization).

When considering a domain name:

1) Shorter is much better than longer. This can help on typos on your end and also your client's or customer's end. It's especially nice when you're saying your website name over the phone.

2) Spell Words Properly - Limit your creativity when mispelling words. This can lead a client or customer going to the wrong website.

3) Shorter is much better than longer. This can help on typos on your end and also your clients end. Consider going with abbreviations. For example: Bank ofAmerica .com is also bofa.com.

4) .com vs other domain extensions - It is ideal to stick to .com (unless you order a .edu, but these are reserved for schools). Search engines give more priority to .com than other extensions. Also people tend to forget other extensions over the .com. Not it is not necessary to buy all other extensions unless you are going to be a huge corporate company like Disney or Toyota.

5) Dashes and Underscores - It is ideal to avoid this because people tend to forget dashes when going to a website.

6) Utilizing keywords in your domain name - If your company does finance loans and you could get financeloans.com this would be ideal for SEO. Of course if your company is well branded, this is not the best choice since people will be searching for your company name.

7) Difficult Word To Spell - Again remember that you are going to be telling people your website url all the time. If your last name or company name is difficult to spell, consider going with abbreviations.

8) Difficult Word To Spell - Again remember that you are going to be telling people your website url all the time. If your last name or company name is difficult to spell, consider going with abbreviations.
