Immortalize Your Website
As subscribers of Raief.com I want you to know how much you are appreciated so I decided to share a tidbit that I know works and that most gurus keep to themselves.
Who doesn’t want to immortalize their website?
To immortalize your website is a dream and can become a reality if it is done with the proper finesse. There are of course the main principles that we all know and have heard, like link building and content, but what about money and traffic?
How can you make money when you immortalize your website? That is easy to answer, just look around the web and you will see that the most famous websites are making money from advertising, not their content.
When you immortalize your website it is more than money, content, or link building.
First of all you have to have a name that is memorable. It has to be catchy and thoughtful. It has to be easy to recall and type into a keyboard or a mobile apparatus.
So how do you come up with a website name that is memorable and not already taken? You have to think outside of the box.
Stop trying so hard to create a name around a specific niche but instead think of something that is memorable.
Today I was challenged to do just that and I came up with several immediately: Leftofhell.com, Litdrops.com, Sorceryjingles.com, Wiredhelpers.com, Manfurdturks.com, Walkinbackwards.com, Bettermesses.com, and Worseformost.com. Now who would forget those? Not many.
OK, I admit that I did not check to see if all of these names are already registered or not, but what the heck, I did do a Google search of all of these names and came up with no established websites.
I take that back. I did do a registrar search and all of them were open.
Another thing to consider is the BIG QUESTION site name. This continues to be overlooked by so many because no one wants you to think about it. Gurus do not want you to know to register domain names of popular searches and especially popular questions.
I checked two additional website domain names and neither of them were taken, or registered. One is Dietsareokay.com and the other one is Aredietsokay.com.
Now don’t get angry with me. I registered both of them myself, but that only goes to show you that it’s possible to think outside of the box and generate income producing websites with names that can immortalize your website, not only by uniqueness but also by “the immortal question”.
The point is if you are looking to establish yourself online and want to immortalize your website it has to have a name that can be remembered easily. Get the point?
The content is always the key factor in whether or not the website visitors’ stay or return, but if you are only establishing an AdSense website or some other advertising income venue and only want them to click away to your affiliate site then the content can be diminished to squeeze pages and small ads for goods that you are promoting.
Remember that memories are short and if you have a four letter website that no one can remember it does you no good. It’s better to have a fifteen letter website that people will remember, even if the content has no relationship with the website name, although if you can have both then that is fantastic!
To immortalize your website for memory sake and the sake of easy access is extremely important and this has been neglected in recent years with the niche marketing guru crowd, while names like Twitter, Facebook, Zeekler, and now Pinterest are making the waves.
It may be great to capture a name like thebestrunningshoes.com, but it can be difficult to capture a name like this, so the next best thing is to go outside the box and think of something that others will always remember with ease and immortalize your website.
NOTE: I want to apologize to our readers. I have been taken away for many days and have had little time to devote to Raief.com. I feel bad and really do love contributing to Raief.com but there is only so much one person can do and the other authors have their own projects, websites, and readerships to take care of, so I have to fill in when I can.
We have not forgotten and remain dedicated to this site. It has been online since 2004, but has made some major changes and the archives only go back to 2009. It is important to all of us and especially me that we keep this site updated and filled with new and important content for our readership, so I am plodding on.
We have a new site called Politcalnews.com that is just beginning and needs some attention too. We are trying to keep our political and news items addressed on Politcalnews.com instead of Raief.com.
Thank you all for your support, and start today to immortalize your website.
