A site without an accurate domain name is just as unappealing as a book without a cover. The power of a good domain has influence far beyond what you could imagine. It is actually easy to find a good domain name. What is the secret? The same applies for your domain name. You have to keep your domain name attractive and also engineer it for the search engines. Keep reading - you will learn how to get both these things done.
Start by researching for a search engine optimized keyword that can be a part of your domain name. You can find immense help with a keyword analyzer to achieve this. You will get these if you do a search on the search engines. When you are on it, put in a sample keyword that you think best tells what your site is about. The keyword analyzer will give you many different versions for the single keyword you used. Choose those keywords from this list that describe more about what your website is about. You're site is better search engine optimized if you use a long tail keyword because there will be fewer webmasters who will choose them.
With this done, you can now begin hunting for your perfect domain name. The company that provides domain names will let you know if a particular domain name is available. If not obtainable, you will at least get some recommendations. The best use of this tool can be made by entering your chosen keyword first. In case the keyword itself is not available as the domain name, you will get some suggestions at least. If a particular suggestion has your keyword in it and terminates with a .com, it will be good for you. You will have to use your creative mind to think of options if this is not present.
Try using some words, phrases or numbers to still keep your keyword within the domain name. Most people use 'a', 'an' and 'the' for such filtering purposes in their domain names. Hence, your domain name will get indexed and will also sound interesting. Any number like 80 or anything else will do.
If you get everything but the .com, this is what you must do. In some cases, another extension does not matter, especially if the keyword is immensely popular. You may think of extensions such as .org, .biz and .net. Another trick is to use a state or country extension in the domain name. For example, it is better to be number 1 in the Austrian Google than number 400 or something in American Google!
You don't need to know rocket science in order to design a domain name that's suited for the search engine purposes as well as for the users. The rest is governed by the analyzer tool. When you find nothing helps you in getting the domain name of your choice, changing the extension always works.
