Despite bookmarks, social media, etc…, domain names are still very important to the success of the websites built upon them. A great domain name can be the difference between a successful website or blog and one that is doomed to become a failure. If you were to ask someone “Where did you get that great shirt?” and they said “I got it at this really great website called superstorename.com.” it is likely to be remembered by that person and they in turn might visit that website to see what they offer. On the other hand if you asked someone the same question and they replied by saying “I faved a Tweet by someone I came across online and there was a website link in one of their previous Tweets and I followed that link and found this great online store who’s domain name I can’t remember.” then it is highly unlikely that you will receive a visit to your website because there is not a memorable domain name they will remember. Now before we go further into why a great domain name matters, I think I should outline some things that help define what a “great domain name” is.READ MORE !
In today’s modern online world it seems that everywhere that you look someone is trying to sell you one thing or another, and that’s just about all they seem to care about. My belief is a bit different. Don’t get me wrong, I like to make money as much as the next person, but I have learned that building relationships with customers or potential customers can make you more money and be more rewarding in the long run. I have owned a couple of different business in my life, and they were all successful. I owe part of my success in business to the fact that I didn’t treat everyone like they were a wallet I was hoping to pry open as fast as possible. I was raised around my grandfather, a business owner himself, who had taught me that if you treat people with respect and go out of your way to show them that respect and that you value them as a customer of yours, it will pay off in the long run. Yes, these practices don’t always get you the quick bucks, but they will get customers to come back for more of your products orREAD MORE !
Every website or blog site owner should know or at least should have heard the term SEO, which is short for Search Engine Optimization. Now, for those who don’t know, SEO is basically things that you (or someone you pay to do) can do to your website or blog site to make them more search engine friendly so that your site will climb up or stay at the top of the search engine results pages or SERP’s for short. Basically SEO are things that you do to a website or web page to help improve the rankings of that website or web page in the search engine results pages. This means your website or blog site’s web pages will be closer to the top or on the top of these search results pages. That means more people will see your site’s web pages in the search results and in return that will increase the chances of more and more people clicking on those results. Most website and blog site owners want more people to click on the search results links to their site so that people will visit, hopefully return at some point and in many cases, see theirREAD MORE !
These days it seems like just about everyone either has, or wants to start their own blog or website. So many changes over the last several years have made it a lot easier for anyone one who wants their own site, to have one. Some people want to have their own site so that they can share their knowledge, experiences, information as well as lots of other things. Other people want their own website or blog to make money, whether it’s some extra spending cash or enough to live off of. No matter what the reason that you want to have your own site, the most important factor that can and will determine the success of your site is choosing the niche that is best for you. When people are trying to decide what niche they want to have their site in, sometimes that choice is a tough one to make. However, it doesn’t have to be a tough choice if you just take a step back and consider some choosing points. First, one of the main keys to having a successful website or blog site is having accurate and appropriate content (articles, stories, etc.) on your site.READ MORE !
Lately I have seen a big growth in the amount of new people dabbling in domain investing or, better known as domaining. One thing that seems to happen to just about every new domainer (someone who buys domain names for the purpose of selling them for a profit) is that they jump right in and start buying up domain names that they think will make them the most profit. The thing that most forget to do is the needed research that every domain buyer (especially someone new to domain buying) should do before buying that great new domain name. A common mistake that many new domainers do is that they will register a domain that is a Trademark violation for a current Trademark holder. Most people who have never bought a domain before don’t realize that just because a domain is available, that doesn’t mean that you should buy it. If you are to invest your money, no matter if it’s a $.99 .com domain that you are getting at GoDaddy.com using a discount registration code or if you are buying from a private party or elsewhere, you want to make sure that that investment isn’t lost or worse,READ MORE !
