What Your First Website Needs to Know About SEO

What Your First Website Needs to Know About SEOAs a new entrepreneur, the prospect of running your very own website may seem daunting, but in reality it’s not difficult at all. Registering for a domain and setting up your site are fairly easy to do. It’s getting your website read by others and using search engine optimization (SEO) that is the most challenging part – but we’ll help you tackle everything:

Your Domain Name Matters

Your site’s domain name is a huge part of its brand. Great domains showcase exactly what the website is about, so the visitor knows what to expect before hitting ‘enter’ on their browser’s URL bar. For example, domain names like buyfauxstone.com and motorcyclelawyercalifornia.com have very clear, focused keywords in their domain names. This gives them a big advantage when someone is searching Google for the exact words “buy faux stone” and “motorcycle lawyer California.”  When you’ve settled on the perfect domain, check out sites like Dreamhost that offer affordable domain-hosting combos that are easy to use.

The Right Domain Name for Your Business Might Be Just Around the Corner

domain nameThe web as we know it is changing. A huge revolution is underway that will drastically alter the way we experience the internet. Is your business ready?

We’re talking, of course, about the plethora of new domain name extensions rolling out! For years website owners have been dealing with a dwindling supply of short, easy-to-remember domain names because so many .com’s and .net’s were bought up.

Starting now, though, you can choose from hundreds of brand new extensions tailor made to help potential customers searching the web find businesses like yours.

How Do They Work?

The days of limited choice about your website’s domain name are over.

With the gradual rollout of more than 700 new domain extensions, the internet is opening up like never before. If you really wanted TopNotchTennis.com but it was taken, now you can register TopNotch.tennis and customers will know exactly what they’re getting when they click on your link.

Here are some examples of what you can expect:

Business: These domain extensions relate to a vertical or an industry. Examples: .app, .shop, .ventures, and .lawyer.

Geographic: Anything related to a region or other geographical location like a city, country, or even continents. Examples: .tokyo, .irish, and .africa.

Community: These extensions deal with any type of community like a group, organization, club, or any other gathering. Examples: .fitness, .tennis, and .club.

Generic: There are even tons of extensions that don’t necessarily fit into a sub-genre. Examples: .free, .fun, .ninja, and .win.

These are just a small sample of the new domain extensions that will follow the handful already available for pre-registration (.luxury, .build, .uno, and .menu). Start brainstorming now so you can get the name and extension you want.
