Domain Registration Tips for better Search Engine Rankings

by 0 comments
Some of the tips that I noted down while I was learning from a DVD program. I hope you find it useful...

  • Instead of having a lot of domains for your business, just use one. Let your home page be your hub which links out to several parts of your website. You can place an RSS aggregator which displays the latest posts from You can place links to latest products in your e-store. Get the latest topics from your forum and place it in your homepage hub.
  • It is not very efficient to have,, … instead, just have and put the other services in the trailing slash… like Even the big G has their most important business at instead of Look at Yahoo, they have a great website at You can see all big players follow this strategy. Why not you?
  • Register your domain for more than 5 years if you are serious about your business. Black hatters usually register a domain for only 1 year because they are trying something which may or may not work. Google trusts older domains and domains registered for many years in the future.
  • Do not use hyphens. It reduces your authority because everyone knows that you registered it because you cannot grab the domain which was without hyphens, so it immediately puts you in a low status.
  • Use short domain names. Four or five word domain names suck. No one would want to type it if the website spreads through word of mouth.
  • If your site’s content is meant for India, then have a .in domain. Google will give you better results in the site. Same goes for other websites. If it is international, go for .com, forget other TLDs.
  • Avoid having domain names closely resembling other domains. Obvious.

    Hello. I want to be successful internet marketer. I have the zeal and passion to achieve this aim. But what restricting me to do this is money. As heading of my post says you would know that am from India. If you compare price of dollar with India Rupee its somewhere around $1=Rs. 66 which is increasing day by day. My budget would be $100/month which is equal to Rs. 6600. This is maximum I can spend. I dont have high paying job and also I have to pay rent, bills, etc. I need to pay for domain, hosting, bing ads, fb ads, landing page and so on. I know there are free methods too but as you say free methods take time to show result.

    Have a very special client. I like to call him the Sheikh. He does not mind. In return, he says that I am a Petrol Writer. This client is generous when it comes to pricing and payments. I have never been greedy. Just like Tom Cruise used to say in the Oblivion: We are an effective team! This gentleman is born and raised in Kuwait. He earned his degree in some prestigious London business school. Yet, when it comes to the business culture, he obviously follows the region of his origin. We do not discuss the price. We do not negotiate. Never. He orders the work. I deliver. Then, he asks how much needs to be paid. I get my money. That is it. Smooth and simple. For what is worth, so far, we have worked only on relatively small projects. Until recently. This was a client only to wish for. Guess, it is not only in my nature, but I was not quite satisfied. I wished we could do some more work. And, you know what happens when you wish for something. It happens to you, but not exactly the way you wanted to get it. So, one fine day, the Sheikh approached me with an unusual proposal. Like I passed all the test, and the time has come for the real thing. What he had on his mind was a book about his personal and professional journey, somewhere around 200 to 300 pages. A brand new website. We are talking about a few dozen pages at least. Then, there was a package of 30 blogs, give it or take. He also needed some scripts for promotion videos, but he was not quite sure how many of them.
