How to Find Your Niche – Part 5
This entry is part 5 of 7 in the series How to Find Your Niche

We are continuing our discussion on How to Find Your Niche focusing this week on Choosing the Right Domain Name.

Once you’ve decided to create a niche blog, which is extremely important if you want to build authority with Google, choosing a name will be another step you can use to help your searchability. Being searchable is a form of inbound marketing.

With a niche blog, it shouldn’t be in your own name until you reach superstar status – but by all means secure the domain name for your personal name if you can, for future use.

Your niche domain name shouldn’t be anything forced or artificial-sounding (remember the Hummingbird algorithm!) – no “horsefreewhybuy.com”-type names.

You can find out which domain names are available instantly, without the usual risk of having someone snap up that name, by entering your keyword (broad or narrower) into Instant Domain Search. You can buy defunct names – the prices are shown. And sometimes you can apply a coupon code. Your niche blog domain name should:

  • Make sense
  • Be something people would actually type a search for (e.g. “WhyBuyNotBoard.com”)
  • Be easy to remember

If you are planning to develop more than one blog for the same general or specific niche, choose a general name you can promote related sub-niches (e.g. “VegeQueen.com”).

If you are going to pour all your energies into a single blog, be as specific as possible (e.g. “QuarterHorsePsychology.com”).

Once you’ve registered your domain name, go to your web host and point your nameservers there.

How did you select your domain name? We would love to hear your experiences, ideas, thoughts, and/or suggestions. Join the conversation below by commenting in our comments section.

Come back next week as we continue our discussion on How to Find Your Niche.
