1. MAKE IT MEANINGFUL

At first answer the question in your mind “what is the theme or niche or topic you want to cover in your blog?” The answer will help you to choose the best domain name!

Keep it in your mind when you start to search for a domain name, “your would be the domain name of your blog or website whatever, must be meaning full for people (i.e. users).

People can’t be remember anything meaningless item, while automatically our mind can recall the meaningful and related words, items as well as a domain name. So take the advantages of a meaningful domain.

Take a look at the domain names of Top AdSense Earners.

2. FIND OUT SHORT & SIMPLE NAME

When we talking about to register a domain name, in this days you can’t find out any meaningful domain up to 4 characters! ( already registered! )

But don’t lose the hope, try to find out something related to your niche (i.e. topic) and should be short and simple. It helps you to promote your business through the mouth.

Just imagine for a moment, what happens when you tell your friends the URL of your blog (i.e. blog name) but nobody catches the correct word or spelling!

You can’t convert them as a user. So try to choose a short & simple domain name which easily talks able.

3. CHOOSE NICHE RELATED KEYWORD

Do you know “what is a keyword?” and how it effects on your domain name? – I think shout be clear about those question before selecting a domain name for your blog.

The keyword is like a representative of your business or blog. That is the single word which tells people about your motive, about your goal and also about your blog topic/niche.

That’s not enough! The domain name is a great factor for ranking on search engine. Google gives the first priority for the related topic only for the related keywords in your domain name.

As an example, When you going to launch a tech related blog and choose the domain name like “www.fashion.com” it will be blander of the year!

In this case, you may consider some domain names like “www.techreview.com” or any other like this which tells people what you are going to do.

So, need to register a niche related domain name for a successful business in this competitive world. Also the domain name will be the brand name of your business, register a domain name as a brandable domain.

4. KEEP IN MIND THE TARGETED LOCATION

Now come to the extension part. This is more vital than your domain name.
There are some factors keep in mind while choosing a better domain name extension.

#1. Price Value

Sometimes you got a surprise as a beginner to negotiate while purchasing a domain name. According to my experience each-n-every startups firstly check for a grammar related word as their domain name.

Is it yes?

You will be shocked by looking at the price value for the domain name you have searched. Some domain trader already put it in premium auction worth more than a lack.

Don’t worry! Leave that and try to mix up words is a good idea. When your best match is “technologyblog.com” but not available with a fear price, you can go for “techblog” or “technoblog” or “blog4tech” or “techtoblog” or “tech2blog” or anything buddy!

#2. Search Engine Authority

Web authority of domain extension is a most valuable key for quick and effortless success!

In the field of education-related web search, “.edu” and “.gov” take the high authority. But forgot it, because the only registered organization can register those domains name extension.

You can grab the “.com” domain name extension for your business. It takes high authority than any other extension. Also, you can try .info, .org etc.

#3. Targeted Location

Now, what do you do, if the “.com” is not available due to any reason?

Think about the location of your targeted audience.

As an example, you want to target USA visitors as your targeted audience, then the best step is to register a “.us” extension for your business website or blog.

The extension Passover the hind about audience location details to the search engine. You can’t rank in google first page in the USA with a “.in” domain extension.

So, choose country basis domain ( .com is universal and commercial ).

  • .in – best to target Indian audiences/customers.
  • .info – best for informative topic worldwide.
