What Kind of Affiliate Domain Name To Use Here

by Eric Yonson 12 replies
I'm looking into buying my own domain for a couple different types of sites and I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice.

I'm a beginning affiliate marketer looking to create and experiment with:
1) review sites
2) opt-in pages

I basically want to have a domain that I send people to that is something like this.
http://keyword.moreinfo.com or http://weightlossdiets.moreinfo.com.

So in the end I could have 6 or 7 review sites and 6 or 7 opt-in pages that all tie to the 'moreinfo.com' domain. The url wouldn't look weird to those visiting my site.

Obviously moreinfo.com is taken. Does anyone have experience with this type of domain? Do I need something like this? Do people look at the domain name that critically?

Note: I just want a domain to test niches using article marketing. If I stumble across something great, I'll just buy a good domain.

        While it is always better to have a domain for each site, sub domains are a great way to categorize your niches while providing a search engine friendly keyword related url. For what your trying to accomplish it works great.

        Regarding people's reaction to such urls, for the most part in internet marketing they are going to be clicking on a sent link so it really does not matter.

        Just had a breakthrough because of the question, and it had to do with domains.

        Just broke through the mental block.

        But sub-domains tend to carry more authority than sub-directories, spend some time at the registrar and see what you can come up with.

        Good luck!

    When I am looking to do something like this, I normally head over to the auctions at GoDaddy, go to the advanced search look for domains that are no longer than 10 characters, are dot coms, and sort by traffic ( I figure any traffic is better than no traffic lol). Now I am not likely to buy an expensive domain but something in the 5-25 dollar rang is not out of the question (it will cost you about 10 dollars over that due to the mandatory 1 year registration)

    If you are in a hurry look for "buy it now"s or auctions that are ending soon (although it will probably still take about a week for the domain to get transferred to you)

    I just did a quick walkthrough over there and came across a couple that could be promising for a site like that. PM being sent so no one steals them before you get there if you are interested.

    My first domain I bought was todays-info-site.com... Maybe that could trigger a few thoughts.

    ps: don't go there, it's crap. I haven't put anything good up there yet.

    I tried this with Adwords and didn't get good results. It screwed my QS.

    If you go down this route Eric i would recommend you find a hosting company that provides unlimited sub-domains. That way can you have as many sub domains, or product recommendation pages, as you like.

    As long as your keywords comprising the domain are well searched for but not highly competitive Eric. I'd suggest you even consider buying an expiring domain name related to your product which a good PR rating. Good luck on your venture.

      Eric,

      In your case and for what your doing the best way to find a good domain is to find one that has just expired.

      Go to this site:
      http://www.wsmdomains.com
      At this site you can download lists of expiring domain names on a daily basis.

      I'd strongly recommend checking it out. I hope that helps.
