Do you Know the Benefits in a SEO Domain Name?
There are two sides of the street with SEO domain names. One group believes it will have a positive effect and the other group believes its neutral, or has no effect on SEO. My opinion is this, I think it does have an effect on how your site will rank. But in no way is this the one way your site will grow and rank in search engines. Having an optimized domain name is just another piece of the puzzle for your simple web page design, so why not do it?
When you decide to put a website together and you are at the planning point, think about generating natural traffic for your site, the start of this is as easy as looking for a name that reflects the keywords your potential clients are searching for. Something so simple becomes important.
As searches lead clients to your site you begin to see the natural flow of organic traffic. Without an SEO based name you lose the extra traffic you gain from applying such a basic technique. Concidering on page SEO techniques is your first application of SEO web design, starting out with an optimized name makes sense.
Now if you weren’t aware of this technique; people sit at a computer and type in phrases or ideas they are looking for. When this happens you want to have a site that is linked with one of those phrases. You have searchers visiting your site just because your name is part of the phrase or idea they are looking for.
Just like when we used yellowpages, which was our go to source for business and company information. Keyword or phrase searches is one of our modern day yellow pages, besides being an economical way of generating traffic.
This alone over time will help create links to your site. Linking helps you rank in Google or other search engines, helping you get closer to the first page. This is what you want. Natural backlinking is one way to give a signal to Google that your site is not spammy.
You won’t be setting the world on fire from this, but with other SEO applied to your site you will be off to great start. When put together with other on page and off page applications of SEO you create a robust website ready for action.
