    What makes a great domain name?

    Would LOVE to know your thoughts on this. As I get too caught up in things like these and believe they really do make a huge impact on traffic!

    A lot of people will say you can rank any site with content which is true but without their history they will never find your domain again. A memorable name is important like a brand but generic is far more powerful. A direct type in has some huge advantages over any other domain. There is a lot to learn appraising domains and understanding the marketplace. I have domain with 500k searches a month and it is all in the name. Do you want to learn the art of domaining or just want some advice on a domain your interested in? There are two sides to domaining buying the names and selling them. You can be good at one or the other but you need to be good at selling more than anything. A good salesperson still can't sell rubbish so it needs to be the first choice for the buyer or offer a traffic advantage. If you start buying names you need to manage them and this takes a lot of time. You need to plan to find your end user before you buy a name. My tip is to look at sold domain prices and check search results to see where there is any avantage to the name your buying. What actually makes a great domain name isn't something that can teach in minutes it is speculation and keyword precedence. What makes a great domain is first and second choice not something that needs to be explained.

    A great domain name is short, spelled correctly, catchy and easy to remember. It should be relevant to the target niche as well, but that's not a necessity. Avoid domain names with numbers, special characters and long words. People will not remember them easily.

    You have basically two types of great domains.

    1. A domain name that is brandable. Think Nike, Google, CNN etc.

    2. A domain name that is something lot's of people would just type into a web browser when looking for something. AKA a typein domain. Think car loans, how to play guitar etc.
