Internet Marketing Newbie And The Myth Of New Domains
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

In the past three years, I have gone through loads of internet marketing newbie training materials, including videos, eBooks, blog posts, webinars and more. One of the things mostly talked about is that when acquiring domains, you stand an advantage if you go for an aged domain for your theme keyword rather than registering a completely new domain.

I believe I have just destroyed that theory. You ask me how?

I registered a domain 08.07 in the morning of 7th October, 2011 UK time (GMT). I then went through the process of changing name servers, setting up the website on my virtual private server (VPS) and installed Wordpress.

The next five hours I spent configuring Wordpress (I am not very fast with this process). I am aware a lot of internet gurus say you could get a site up and running on Wordpress in less than thirty minutes. This may be true, but I advise any internet marketing newbie that quality is really much better than quantity.

Anyway, back to the subject. The configuration of Wordpress involved installing my preferred theme, creating my standard pages, installing my standard plug-ins and writing material for my home page. I also created blog categories around my chosen secondary keywords. Finally I created and installed one sidebar widget promoting one of my affiliate products.

Once I finished all these, I left the site and went on to do other things.

On Saturday 9th October 2011, I was working late as usual. Around 23.20 (again UK time – GMT), I entered info:mydomain in the Google search box. Lo and behold, the site was indexed already and the site info was displayed. Feeling very bold now, I typed my main keyword into the search box. Nothing on the front page, though I was not really expecting anything. But, to my greatest surprise, I clicked the next page and there was my site, 4th on page two of the search results. This was on Saturday night. As I write this article on Monday morning, 10th October, 2011, I am now on page one and climbing fast.

The very strange thing about this is that I have not written any articles about my main keywords for this website or submitted the website to any directories. I have not done any of the zillion things that the training materials recommend to get Google to take notice of a website.

I am not suggesting to any internet marketing newbie that all those activities are not necessary. My point is that if you do your research properly and choose a brilliant keyword with exact domain match to the keyword, you are well on your way. And this is where most internet marketing newbies fall down. They are so much in a hurry that no time is spent on research, the most important aspect of internet marketing.

A word is enough for the wise.
