Are you still researching those keywords for your new site or blog but don’t seem to be getting anywhere?
A lot of the time, you can come up with some really great ideas for keyword phrases, otherwise known as long-tailed keywords, but when you’ve done all your research and then go to look for a domain name that matches those keywords for the most powerful SEO options, you find that all the best ones have already been taken.
By the best domains, I mean all the .com domains. Let’s face it, when you’re serious about your business, only a .com will do as anything else just doesn’t have the same weight when you drop it into conversation. So you search like mad for all sorts of combinations of the great keywords you’ve stumbled upon but there simply is nothing available.
There is a way around this, if you think smart.
You need your own professional hosting that allows you to create subdomains. Personally, I’d recommend HostGator as they allow you to set up and host as many top level domains and subdomains as you want, ie unlimited, for the one monthly hosting fee. As long as you can do that and have the resources to create a complete new website (or blog) then this is what you can do.
Start with a good top level .com domain name. Then simply create a subdomain with the keywords that you’ve found for your next great business creation.
SEO the new site by using all the SEO techniques you have learned, or if you want to save yourself some time and effort, there is a simple to follow and fully loaded SEO eBook that I have personally put together that will show you exactly how to do it. It’s entitled The Secrets of SEO Revealed and there’s a link in my sidebar with a small graphic of the cover – or you can click HERE to go straight to the sales page, if you want.
THE HONEST WAY
PS: I’ve noticed a growing trend on a lot of blogs where they ask you for a donation to buy them a cafe latte or a beer or something similar – in other words they have their hands out for a donation. That’s all well and good, but I won’t be doing that because I feel it’s akin to begging in the street.
From my point of view I believe that if you want to be paid, you should at least give something in return. Ok, bloggers argue that their time writing their blogs and giving the reader something interesting to read is recompense enough, but I don’t buy it.
I feel that if a reader enjoyed visiting my blog they should feel free to come back and read some more – without being made to feel like they should pay for the privilege. Sure, I’d like to be paid for my time writing, but that monetization will come from advertising revenue as this site increases it’s readership, which is my job to continue to work at achieving.
PPS: If someone wants to donate to my cause, better they get something in return.
My eBook: “The Secrets of SEO Revealed“ is on sale at only $9.97 which I feel is really good value for what you get.
So please do not donate money to buy me a beer or a coffee. Buy my eBook instead and benefit from the hard work and valuable information that went into that instead. That way you get your money’s worth and more when you put the book to use and start to make money from your fully SEO’d site!
