HI

Would love some perspective, I have been told that YO is a really bad name for a company for google ranking.

Would love to hear what are the key challenges you see

Also because we love the name and it is related to the service can anybody suggest what we could do.

Thanks
Linda

    Whoever told you that the name of your company has anything to do with how it will rank is someone you should not be listening to.

    Do you think "MOZ" was a great name for a company that is centered around SEO or that "Amazon" was a great name for a company that initially just sold books but now sells everything or that "Bing"/"Google"/"Yahoo" were great names for a search engines? How about the names "CraigsList" or "Wayfair"?

    If the name is memorable, it is a great name. Period. Your ability to rank well is not tied to your company name at all. Unless, of course, that name is so memorable that people mention it all the time online.

    Dave's answer is spot on.

    The only thing I don't like about the name is you will likely never own Yo.com, but that is more of a branding problem. Nothing to do with SEO.

    I don't know how I forgot to mention the most obvious example of a site that ranks well with a memorable name that in no way exemplifies what the site is about ... "Warrior Forum".
