Hello everyone, I was contacted by a great blog and website visitor today. He asked me to write a post on how to choose the right domain name for your website. For all of you who are starting your website, this post will be very helpful to you also. For all of my followers who already have a website, you may need to read this helpful post to see if you have chosen the correct domain name for your web site. Having more than one website is also recommended. So you can apply the steps below to your future website(s).
Choose the correct website domain by choosing the correct Website Niche or topic!
Think of what you want your website to be about. Ask your self what you enjoy doing. When I chose my website domain name of http://helpwithyourwebsite.com, I was in the process of making my shopping website that has the domain name of: http://www.shopwithtammyonline.com. I kept running into problems with my shopping website and needed a lot of help on my Microsoft office live website. I thought to myself that it would be wonderful to have a website to turn to for help. That is when my new website domain name idea was create. I realized that I loved working on websites and I also knew that people were searching for answers on how to complete certain tasks on their OfficeLive websites.
When choosing your domain name, you need to include a keyword that people will use to search for your website. Such as: Help website! My main keyword phrase is "help website" or "website help". I have included both keyword phrases into my website domain name.
Create your website around your domain name. It would of been silly of me to choose: http://helpwithyourwebsite.com and then create my pages about dogs, cats or cars. That is why my content is written to help other website owners with their sites.
Choose a domain name that isn't going to be a big competition! If you choose a large topic or domain name for your website, then you will have to make an outstanding large website to beat your competitors. If you are a beginner website developer, then I highly suggest you picking a small website niche and domain name. If you want your website to be found in the search engines, then you need to narrow your options down to a certain subject. If you like cars and know a lot about them, you should pick a certain type of car to make your website about. Instead of your domain name being: http://cars.com it should be for example: http://chevytahoe.com. Those are just examples and I am not sure which websites the prior links will take you to if clicked on.
I have included some Amazon books above that you can use to do more domain name research with if you desire. I am also available every other day to answer any future questions you may have. So feel free to leave a comment in the comment area below this blog post. Just ask and I will do my best to anwer any domain name questions you may have.
Thanks for all of your support, comments and website questions!
