Secrets to Domain Names When Starting an Online Business

May 29, 2010 by  Filed under: other 

When starting an online business choosing the best possible domain name is extremely important. The reason it’s so important is name recognition associated with keywords is how you generate traffic to your website. Therefore why not start at the beginning with your domain name. Before anyone buys a domain name and launches an internet business they need to take the time to learn keyword research. If you have no idea where to start here is a great place (free) to begin, type Google keyword tool in your search engine. Near the top of your search you will see Google keyword tools. When you open the site, before you do anything else, click on learn more and take the time to learn keyword research step by step until you completely understand it.

It would be ideal if you could afford to outsource this work to a competent SEO (search engine optimization) company. However for the majority of us starting a business this is very unlikely and we simply have to learn SEO marketing to complete online with traffic generation. Keywords are how people find what they are looking for on the net. We simply type in a keyword phrase and start surfing. The trick to keywords is to find relevant words relating to content that have a good amount of traffic with the least amount of competition. Typically a short tail keyword will have way too much competition, therefore you are never likely to rank even close to page one. However, long tail keywords with the proper research can easily get you on page one of an internet search.

That said, when it comes to domain names long tail or long names are not practical or desired. Therefore a relevant short keyword (providing it is available) is more effective even though you are not likely to rank very high in a search result. The idea here is to have a good name associated or relevant to the business you are providing that people like or can remember. If the keyword or words are relevant than in time along with on page and off page SEO your site will rank very well. With a good reasonably short and relevant keyword domain name you have an excellent start to launching an internet business. With your ability now to do good keyword research you can start creating relevant keyword content, heading tags, internal linking and anchor text links to your website. With this on page SEO you are likely to start ranking very high in the search results and generate traffic to your online business. After all without traffic to your website you have little chance making money online.

I highly recommend taking the time to learn good keyword research and implement SEO marketing if you want a successful online business.

Keep in mind in order to be successful online you must learn marketing skills and implement what you learn.
