Need A Web Domain Fast! Please help with ideas

by Brad Spencer 8 replies
Hey Warriors,

I'm getting my girlfriend set up with her first web business today. We're using wordpress to put up a photography site since she's a professional photographer.

She does real estate photography for agents. Does anyone have any ideas for a web domain?

we've come up with

homephotosbycherise dot com
perrottirealtyphotos dot com
realtyphotos dot com

and a few variants. However, nothing sticks out. I'd appreciate anyone's help on this.

Cheers,

Brad

    When it comes to choosing a domain name, I've heard
    you should create one using whatever keywords you think
    or know your future customers would use when searching
    for a product or website like yours on google.coms search engine.

    This apparently goes toward helping one to get their site listed
    on the 1st page of google searches when one searches using
    that keyword.

    So with that inmind, if you find there are many searches
    for the keyword "realestate photography" than you should
    make your domain name www.realestatephotography.com

    Hope this helps

    I would also suggest that you think about some shorter domain name, but this is only if your girlfriend has a lot of offline contacts, and she can spread a word about herself offline. By choosing a short name, you make your users remember it easier and come back (a lot more oftern).

    This seems to be a competitive niche (as far as I understand) so it might be hard to find a good and short domain (and don't I know the feeling, just look at my signature).

    Anyways, try to focus on two keywords for the domain. I think that your suggestion homephotosbycherise dot com is rather okay

    Ummm.......... what about realestatephotosforagents.com

    It's how you described what she does. Make subdomains for all the cities/towns/counties in your area where she can travel to. Make subdomains for actual agencies, etc...

    Take a little more work - but in the end you should rank for every region, theme, and search term they would be searching for.

      You want to keep your domain as short as possible and do some keyword research using both Wordtracker and the Google Adwords Keyword tool to start with. Then, you can start thinking about a domain name which you can use to rank well for in the SE's in relation to the keyword term.

      In addition, include your partners business name or brand in the domain too. Once she becomes better known, people in the industry will seek her out in the search engines by searching for here name. So that's something to consider also.

      However, here are some I've thought of off the top of my head. Not sure if they're active or not:

      realestatefotos.com
      propertythruglass.com
      real-estate-lens.com
      realestatephotographer.com

      Hope this helps
