This is a step by step explanation of how to choose a SUITABLE DOMAIN NAME for your future blog. Choosing a working domain name is the first step and most considerable step towards a successful blog. Thousands of people create blogs on daily basis but all of them do not get success to their expectations, and the reason behind this is, mostly we do not give importance to small, basic but highly important points.
After reading this brief article I am sure you will be able to choose a suitable domain for your blog. Several tools on the Internet can aid you to choose a reasonable domain name.
Choose a suitable domain name
To make selection further easier I am enlisting the following general features of a good domain name.
A good domain must give a complete description of your content. A general word which specifies the content would be the most suitable one. For example, if you want to create a blog on beautiful nature, nature, wallpapers, etc, the possible names for such a blog may be following
- Beautiful places
- Paradise on earth
- Places of heaven
- The beauty of nature etc.
Let’s decide between the first two words i-e Beautiful places and paradise on earth. Both of the words completely describe your blog content “beautiful nature”. But the difference is clear, beautiful places is a more general term while Paradise on earth is comparatively complicated to describe the blog content.
A person willing to search for natural beauty will hardly or rarely use the word “paradise” or “heaven”. 99% probability is he will search for these words, Beautiful earth, beautiful places, awesome places, beautiful pictures, etc. So all of these words are closer to beautiful places than paradise on earth. In web language, these words are called keywords.
