How To Select A Good Domain

Keyword Rich Or Catchy?

Selecting a good domain is pretty important because it’s going to be one of the first thing that buyers are looking for – a nice domain. There are two kind of domains that you can choose for a website either keyword rich domain or a nice catchy domain name.

For VRE sites your looking for a keyword rich domain. Catchy domains should be used for info products, physical products and membership websites IMO. A lot of buyers are looking for domains that have keywords in because it makes it easier to get a ranking on the search engines for a keyword that is in your domain name.

I keep this process pretty simple because it is usually very easy to find a good domain. I just get my list of top keywords for the niche and copy them one at a time into the Namecheap.com domain search. Your ideally looking for a domain that fits the following criteria:

  • Has less than 3 words. You don’t want your domain to be too long.
  • Includes your top keywords
  • You can have 1 dash in your domain, more and it will put buyers off
  • Only buy .com, .org, .net domains
  • The domain must be available

That is it really. You just simply need to add the domain to your cart and checkout. This is easy to do so I’m not going to show you step by step how to do this. If you have any questions about buying a domain please let me know!
