Tips to choose a good domain name is must to get success. Right and Perfect picking of domains with targeted keywords related to niche is always a good step. Using good tricks to select a domain helps in search engine boosting. Experienced one always goes for a good domain but the new bloggers can’t and he should know how to choose a best domain?
Before choosing a domain you have to choose a niche. Niche means topic. Topic on which you blog is known as niche. Does a niche is important? Yes. A niche is a selected topic to blog. You have unlimited content for some niches and limited content to topics. So niche tells how to and how much to blog? For example, if you choose trigonometry in subject match as your niche, you would be able to blog on only trigonometry problems and solutions. That would be fixed to certain content. But what about a blog of niche “news”. For every minute and every hour news updates. So he can blog up to unlimited content if he choose a news niche.

1. Smart and short domain
A short domain can be remembered by many and many. Using a short domain would make visitors remember and come back to your blog directly to check your latest posts. A long domain is neglected. So don’t go for long domain. bestbloggerbulktricks.com sound nice, but it is long. Think as if you are visiting this website directly by typing URL in address bar. Do you like to type bloggerbulk.com or bestbloggerbulktricks.com a short is fast and remembered.
For example a domain name like “findme.com” can have an alternate like “whoami.com” you have chosen these two good domain names. But filter from them and use a best domain that is easy to type, remember and share it easily. findme.com wins.
2. Use keywords in your domain
A domain name with keywords helps in search results to be top. Many ask me a question is domain name with keywords is essential? I have two answers for this. First answer is yes, you get well experience which using Google or any search engines on this issue. Secondly, no, for example take a look at doncaprio.com. A pro blogger from Nigeria, maintains multi niche blog. And the domain name doesn’t contain any keywords like blogger, wordpress or tech. Other example shoutmeloud.com, the awesome site one the best leading sites in INDIA.
How these domains got success :
It surely depends on what you blog. They stick to their niche and target their niche. They post unique and quality content without making all rubbish including. Always try to develop a keyword related to your blog to increase traffic from search engines.
3. Don’t use hyphen and numbers
Prevent using hyphens. Using hyphens don’t make your blog look like a professional domain. You can use number in your domain unless, that’s your last search. As hyphens are not used more. You can get your required domain containing hyphen. If you use hyphens there is possibility to give advantage to your competitor. Like users may forget to use hyphens because it not well used in domains. User may enter bloggerbulk.com instead of your domain like blogger-bulk.com. So don’t let your competitors to take advantage of your domain.
4. Choosing top level domains
Many think of few dollars, that should be paid to registrar for top level domains and go for a poor domain extensions. If you ask me to suggest best domain name extensions, i would recommend to go for .com .net and .org. These are the best top level domain (TLD’s) that would surely give good ranking in search results. Don’t go for country level domain like .in, .uk these won’t get good priority and advertisers hate domains with country specific extensions. If you have a personal market or shop that you serve only in local and not world wide then you can go for your country domain name extension.

5. Go for company name
You know many websites raise today and no stop for internet services. If you own a company then must choose a company name followed by company title to your blog. This is the best way to choose a domain name. If you own a company like apsara, natraj ( pencil companies ) then directly for apsara.com or natraj.com not to site like stationary.com. Don’t be smart. Users remember your brand so go for your brand.com
What about expired domains ?
A good question raised. Domain names get expired as per user registration. Mostly go for one year, reason is no success with their website. They work hard and develop quality backlinks and page rank. But they don’t stick to their domain. So purchasing a expired domain and using it comes under Black Hat SEO techniques. Its your own risk. How to use this in White Hat SEO? Before purchasing check the domain niche, purchase a domain related to your niche only and start posting quality content related to niche. This helps you.
