Naming Your Blog
You are going to need a name for your new blog. Try to keep it simple and try to pick a name that is catchy and people will remember but also says what your blog is about. You really have to give the name that you are going to use some serious thought, as you could be stuck with this name for a while. There is a couple of ways you could do this. You could pick a name that has a specific keyword in it, like if your topic is “football,” you would want a domain name with “football” in it. Or you may want to pick something more general but covers a wide area. Say for example, if you started off doing one topic, and you decided to change to something else, you could still use your same domain name without changing.
Keywords Needed to Rank Well with Search Engines
The first way with the keyword, is good if you want to rank well with the search engines (more about them later), and have people that are searching for that topic come to your site naturally. The bad thing about this is this can of name lacks pizzazz. Nobody will remember your name if its called freecatpottytrainingtips.com. A keyword specific domain gives a bad first impression. You will look plain and most people visiting your site will forget about you after leaving it.
A Name That’s Easy to Remember
The second way is the best if you want people to come back to your blog on a regular basis. You want to select a web address that people can easily remember. Think about the big guys, Facebook and Twitter, no one knew them at first but people could easily remember their names so you know the rest of the story.
When I was putting together my domain name, I wanted something that would cover a wide range of topics I wanted to talk about with web design.
With my domain name RobMcDonaldWebDesign, I can talk about blogs and websites, Facebook and Twitter, and Photoshop and WordPress, all under the same domain name. There are so much more directions to branch out from here.
