Choosing Your Domain Name

Choosing your domain name could be very hard and stressing if you focus on the search engine result page (SERP).

If you choose a no keyword name like "yahoo" on the first time or "google" at the first time they choose the name, you have to build your reputation on that name. You will build a knowledge to the world that the "unique" domain is your's. But if you choose to use a keyword name like "forex-news" you have to get ready yourself to compete with other old player that using that keyword as traffic source in search engine.

Two word domain name like "financial-news" more unique than "financial" or "news" so the competition environment could be better because it's smaller. But using more than one word will invite mistakes from your reader if they only memorize your blog name and not to bookmark it. One word unique like "yahoo" is simple and easy to remember.

Using two keywords name like "forex-news" also force you to focus on your domain name topic "forex-news". It means you have to focus your blog in providing "forex-news", talking about it, give your reader opinions and chance to comment, or anything else but still in "forex-news" topic. If you going out of topic, your visitor who search you on purpose searching "forex-news" site will be upset and leave you. They will never comeback, unless they need you.

Having a good domain name will make you a chance to make money too by selling it. If your domain name is unique enough that have a lot of traffic of course. But I'm not recomend this way to make money. It's same as you can sell your house to make money. I prefer make money and still having the house.

Choose your own domain wisely, they will contribute how your site will grow.
