(Your Brand) Websites that focus on a long-term Branding Strategy are the ones that are the most successful. Your domain name is the foundation of your brand and will always be your site's identifier. Your domain should be creative, memorable, and easily recognizable at first glance. #7 Domain Does Not Have to Include Keywords A common misconceptions is that the domain name should include keywords describing your product or service. Although, there is nothing wrong with this strategy some of the most popular websites created their own memorable name focusing solely on Branding. (Example: Ebay, Google, Facebook) #3 Keep It Short With millions of domains on the web, sometimes it is hard to find an available "short"domain name. Finding the perfect domain takes time, do not rush, and focus on creating the shortest/most memorable domain possible. You want your visitors to be able to remember and share your domain name; hence, the importance of keeping it short and sweet. #4 Be Original. Watch Out For Trademarks/Copyrights Before you choose a domain name take a second to make sure you are not infringing on a protected name. You can perform a Google Search, Free Trademark Search, and Copyright Search to get a really good idea if someone else is using the name or something similar. Be original stealing s omeone else's idea is simply not cool. #J If You Can't Find an Available Domain You Like, Consider Buying One Each an every day it becomes increasingly harder and harder to purchase a quality and memorable domain name. If you can not find an available domain name that you like, consider investing in a quality name. Good domain names are like real estate and can hold and gain value with time.
