Free Website Content Using Affiliate Product Data Feed

One of the first decisions you make when you set up a new site is the domain name. In today’s affiliate marketing tip, I want to share some tips with you that help you choose great domain names for your niche websites. Keep these in mind and you’ll end up with something that will help you grow your site and your brand over the coming months and years. Let’s dig right in.

Make It Memorable…. And Easy to Spell

The most important thing to keep in mind when choosing a domain name is that it has to be easy to remember. You also want to make sure it’s easy to spell. There will be plenty of opportunities down the road where you’ll mention your site on a podcast, in an article or in a conversation. To make sure it’s easy to remember, stay away from any dashes and don’t use numbers instead of words (for example don’t’ use “2” instead of the words “to” or “two”).

I like to run my domain name choices by a friend or family member and see what they think. If they can still remember it after 5 minutes, it’s usually a pretty good pick. If they can’t, it’s time to start from scratch.

Keywords Help Too

Of course having your main keyword part of your domain name helps. If possible, work it in there. Not only will it help with search engine traffic down the road, it also helps clarify what your site is about for your visitors.

That being said, don’t sweat it if you can’t get your best keyword in the domain name. It’s much more important that you end up with something that’s easy to type and remember. The SEO benefits from a keyword-rich domain name can be overcome with a little extra work.

Stick with.com Extensions

Last but not least, let’s talk about extensions. The most well-known one is.com, but these days there are all sorts of other extensions that are available including .info, .net, .org, .co, .mobi etc. Unless you are building a site in a country other than the United States, stick with a .com extension. If you are in a different country use the one most commonly used there. For example, if you are building a site for a German audience, you want to use a .de extension.

The main reason for using the extension most commonly used is that people will automatically go to the site with that extension and you may as well take advantage of all that traffic.
