3 Creative Domain Registration Tips For Your Blog

One of the most important aspects of a quality blog is the creation of its domain name. Here are the simplest and the best tips to get it right. Read ON!
Choosing Right Domains For the Blog Creating a blog is all about writing and spreading your message as far as you possibly can. While your reasons are your own for setting up your blog, one of the most important aspects of a quality blog is the creation of its domain name. Starting on the right foot means making sure that the domain name you register is not only one you’re satisfied with, but also one that makes it much easier to expose your blog to potential readers.
While it’s possible to change your domain name down the line, the amount of effort that goes into it means you will likely be stuck with the name you first register. Here are just a few creative tips for registering your brand new blog’s domain name. We’ll also be evaluating the cons alongside the pros of each tip to help you better understand how to take advantage of it.

1. Keywords are memorable and translate to more exposure

More often than not, most users prefer websites with domain names that aren’t too complicated or clunky. A quality domain name for a blog needs to be something that is straight to the point, which is why keywords are so important. The only disadvantage you have here is because there are already countless blogs out there, it can be difficult to get the ones you want.

2. A local blog could prove to be more advantageous in the long run

While you might want your message to spread out internationally (and it will, because of the Internet), it might be best to concentrate on your own area when it comes to your blog for more exposure. This used to be possible only through inserting your city or state’s name which can get awkward, but thanks to the new TLDs, you’ll be able to use suffixes such as .uk so you don’t need to sacrifice a creative name to keep your blog local. The advantage of this is that people from your area will be more likely to come across it, giving you an edge over local rivals.

You might notice that each and every one of the tips presented above all complement each other. This is to make sure that you’re able to take advantage of all these tips in order to come up with the best possible domain name for your blog. Just make sure to watch out for scammers, and only register domain names using a trusted registrar!

For example, if your blog is all about modeling, modeling.com would be the best choice – but it’s also completely unlikely that you get it. Instead you can try for names such as modelingadventures.com, or modelingforyou.com. It’s important to keep the keyword at the start of the domain name so that search engines pick your blog up easier.

3. Take advantage of the new TLD (top-level-domain) suffixes

The problem posed in the previous tip becomes much easier to handle if you make use of some of the newer domain name suffixes (of which there are hundreds) to help you achieve the best domain name possible for your blog. Let’s say you want to name your website The Very Best Blog, because you’re passionate and believe in the message you want to convey to your future readers. Utilizing theverybestblog.com is still unlikely because chances are someone has already come up with that clearly inspired name. Did you know however that you can use theverybest.blog? The new domain name suffixes are flexible and can prove to be instrumental in finding the right name for you.
However, also consider that while you might be able to convince more people to click on your blog with creative domain names, search engines will have a difficult time picking it up unless you use keywords.
