What are the SEO practices for Domains?
« on: December 31, 2018, 03:35:23 PM »
We all know the importance of SEO and its effects on rankings as well. I was confused when it comes to the domain. Does SEO really matter for domains? If yes, then what are the SEO practices for domains?

Try to pick small and trending words for the domain so that it will easy to remember at the time of searching on the Internet. Too much of complicated names will surely confuse to the user while searching the same on the Internet.

If you want your domain should be most searched in search engine then consider these factors:

    Avoid numbers
    Be clear on Misspellings
    Make it memorable
    Relate to your business
    Keep short and simplest
    Check hyphen and case sensitivity

Online ads and paid search are inter-related to the domain name. If the domain name is good then it will leave a great impact on text and image ads.

Below are some of the SEO practices for domains:

  • Pick a domain name that you are remember.
  • Avoid using hyphens in between the name.
  • Avoid non-.com and top level domains, instead go with a .com TLD.
  • Don't lie about your domain age.

A domain does matters for SEO. The most important building block of SEO is the structure of URLs and domains. Some of the good SEO practices for the domain are:
1) keep single domain and sub-domains
2) Make it readable
3) try to join it with Keyword
4) If possible, exclude dynamic parameters
5) Try to match URLs to Page titles.

I didn't knew that using hyphens between domain isn't good. I had planned a domain name with hyphen. It's better that I change it now.
