As the Google algorithm has changed once and once again, an EMD domain name seems not still a good idea for your online business. So I wanna be notified all you that How to Choose a SEO Friendly Domain Name for Your Business from 2015.
1. Stick with “.com” domains
The .COM TLD (top-level domain) is by far the most widely accepted extension for a domain name on the internet. Although there are many other TLD such as .NET, .ORG, .BIZ, etc or ccTLD such as .US for Americans, .CA for Canadians, .CN for Chinese, etc.
Based on an investigation, when type a domain name on the browser, 67% person would like to type the .COM under customary and, for your business, a .COM domain name boost the credibility of your website.
2. Brand Name Domains First
When compare with the Generic Domains, the Brand Name domains should be better. Although the EMD not the most important thing for Google, it is still working for many other search engines such as Yahoo, Bing, Baidu, etc. More important, a domain that contains brand name or keyword should be helped the customers know your website at the first glance and make sure that this is sth they are looking for.
3. The shorter, the better
The shorter your domain name is then the easier it is for your visitors to remember, to type, and the easier it is for your visitors to tell others about your domain name. And a short domain name is easier to remember and less likely to be misspelled than a long one.
4. No hyphens
A domain name without hyphens should be much better than the one with it, that’s mean a domain like makemoneyonline.com is much better than make-money-online.com, the search engines especially Google do not like the hyphens, neither do I. For SEs, makemoneyonline.com is an Exact Match Domain, while the make-money-online.com not.
5. No numbers
When the domain been taken, many ppl would like to choose the keyword+number for their domain name, this is not a wise choice IMO. Bob not recommend the words+numbers as a domain combination, for example, you’d like to register a domain name for a web hosting review website, while the webhostingreview.com (EMD) been taken, you can choose a domain such as webhostingbaby.com, webhostingtag.com but not webhosting6.com or webhosting5.com, etc.
Even more, you should Avoid Numeral Substitutions such as the numeral “4″ instead of “for”, “2″ instead of “to”, etc.
6. Use the Bulk Domain Registration Tool
Use the Go Daddy Bulk Domain Registration to check the domain availability for upto 500 domains a time.
7. Choose a well-known Registrar
A registrar is very important for website stability, and for long run, the registrar quality affected on your website performance.
Bob recommend the GoDaddy.com as your ONLY choice for domain registration for long run. Godaddy is the world’s largest registrar which managed more than a half of the visible domain names. While with the Godaddy Coupons, the price is also attractive for as low as $5.99/year. Besides Godaddy, Namecheap.com, domain.com, name.com also good choice.
8. Alternative Choice for Domain Name
If the EMD domain was been taken, a domain that with “a”, “my”, “the”, etc also an alternative choice, for example:
A domain name is life and death for a website or your online business, you should be chose it carefully includes, the domain length, keyword, extension, registrar, composition, spelling, etc.
Hope it can be helped for your domain choosing.
