Domain name articles have been written here on Active Rain and all over the web. The do's and dont's of using the correct domain name have been around for a while now.
Again I am living proof of what works and what does not. Active Rain member Karen George wrote about this topic and she was right on the button as always!
I created my first major website about 9 years ago. Not knowing any better I just chose tallabas.com For years and even until recently this was my domain name with one other domain name pointing to it which I will no longer do...read Multiple Domain Names >> What is the latest news?
About 2 months ago I purchased a Point2Agent professional template site. At first I wasn't sure about it and didn't do much. About 3 weeks ago I got pretty serious about it and then excited. Early last week I worked on it a lot and then decided to use a domain name I have owned for some time www.SearchIdahoHomes.com I received confirmation last Thursday the 23rd of August, 2007 that Search Idaho Homes was now my official domain name for my new site.
If you go to Google and type in "Search Idaho Homes". My site now comes up #1 on the first page in only 5 days of existence!
In all the years of using tallabas.com my site never got past the 3rd page on Google and it took years to even get there. This goes to prove that Karen and many others are right when they say that using a domain name that is relative to the product you are selling is magic!
So instead of using "JohnSmith.com" for selling real estate in Tim Buck Two as a domain name, use something with "Tim Buck" in the name. Get creative and keep trying until you come up with a relative name. I am proof that the results are amazing!
