Top 5 Tips When It Comes To Buying A Domain Name Advice

Why would you need buying a domain name advice? I mean, how hard can it be to name your new cyber baby? You're excited - you're about to start your online business, or expand your online empire, so you just pick a name that sounds sexy and appealing and you're off and running, right?

NOT SO FAST! You want your web site to be found by prospective visitors and potential customers, don't you? Well, then, a bit of care and attention needs to go into the all-important task of selecting a name for your new domain to make sure it does more than just look good.

So, with that in mind, here are the top 5 tips as far as buying a domain name advice is concerned.

1. Buy a dot (.)com name

The reason this is number 1 is because it's a generally held belief that, when it comes to dot (.)com versus any of the other top-level domains (TLDs) (dot (.)net, dot (.)info, etc.), the search engines will give the nod to the dot (.)com name, all other things being equal. To be honest, nobody can say whether this is true or not, but why take a chance and lose out on potential income. It may take a bit more effort to put this piece of buying a domain name advice into effect, but it will be worth it.

2. Include your site keyword in the name

Hopefully you chose a keyword for your web site that's not going to see it buried under a sea of unbeatable competition. If you chose a one-word keyword, in all likelihood that's what's going to happen. So, hopefully you chose a multi-word (or long-tail) keyword, which should be included in your domain name. Taking this buying a domain name advice will help your site get ranked in the search engines.

3. Choose a descriptive, meaningful name

Your domain name should reflect your business, so that it will be easy for web searchers to remember and find. If your business is all about brewing beer, both "beer" and "brewing" (or a variation like "brewery") should be part of the name.

4. Brand your domain

One of the best things I can tell you when it comes to buying a domain name advice is to make your brand name part of your domain name. If you do this, not only will your name be memorable to searchers, but you'll strengthen the recognition of your brand.

5. Keep it short

This next piece of buying a domain name advice concerns the length of your domain name. Even though most single-word names are long gone, avoid using overly long and complicated names. If people searching for your name can't recall it because it's so long, your site may end up on the refuse pile of cyberspace.

On the other hand, making it too short by using acronyms may also leave you feeling like your site's stranded on a desert island! You may know what jandn dot (.)com means (just another new domain name), but how many searchers would enter that? Nowhere near enough!

As you can tell, there's more to selecting a domain name than just pulling one out of thin air. Hopefully, these tips will provide with what you need where buying a domain name advice is concerned and you can put these into practice when you're ready to buy your next domain name.

This is just one piece of the entire internet marketing puzzle, so, if you're ready for more in-depth training on this and all other aspects of internet marketing, the good news it's ready for you and available now.
