How to choose a good domain name for SEO, 3 hints

Choosing a good domain name for Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is important for your domain name. A lot of time and effort can go into choosing a good domain name for SEO and for other purposes. Here I came up with 3 hints. No doubt there are more which is why I encourage readers to leave any related comments and feedback at the end of this article. I assume that the domain names you are considering do not infringe copyright or trade marks belonging to others.

Hint 1 … Choose a dot com domain name

Although the new top level domain names are available and my understanding is that the search engines do not look at the top level domain name, domains ending with the now very familiar dot com have more creditability with people than those that do not. This will change over the next while as the new top level domain names are being rolled out and people become more familiar with them. However in the meantime, your domain name still has to perform.

For the moment, focus on a domain name ending with dot com. However protect your medium term interest and your long term interests and also look at domain names ending with alternatives.

There is nothing stopping you from purchasing those domain names today and leaving them parked for potential future use. You do not want your competition from obtaining those domain names. You can obtain your domain name at cost if you are a Domain Cost Club Member. See our review of Domain Cost Club here.

The new domain extension names are becoming more mainstream, more familiar and more acceptable. So as more time goes by, it is very likely that the new domain extension names will become popular so this hint although valid at the time of writing this, may become outdated very quickly. We live in a fast moving world.

Hint 2 … Avoid using dashes in the domain name

There is some debate in the online world on this, however in my opinion, using dashes in the domain name itself should just be avoided as it just looks wrong. It just does not look right. Oh and also avoid using numbers in the domain name itself.

Hint 3 … The domain name should be brand-able and as short as possible

With the domain name being brand-able, it allows you to focus on building the brand. With it being short, catchy and easy to spell, it is less likely that someone may misspell it when entering the domain name in a browser. If the domain name is really long, it is likely that people will misspell it when entering the domain name in a browser.

After determining a domain name or domain names, you need to register them.
