How to choose a good blog name

choose a good blog name
There are three simple rules to follow when choosing a blog name:

1) It must describe your blog: it is probable that lots of people will see a link to your blog before having the chance to actually read it (in search engines, for instance). Guess what, if just by looking at the name they can figure what the blog is about they will be more likely to visit it.

2) It must be easy to remember: suppose your blog talks about cycling, fitness and health advice in general. Naming it “The Cycling, Fitness and General Health Advice Blog” would offer quite an exhaustive description of the blog, but would it also be easy to remember? Stick with simple names.

3) It must be equal to the domain name: this rule is often ignored by people, probably because finding a suitable domain that has not been registered yet is a difficult task. Still if your domain name does not match the blog name you will probably lose some readers along the way. When people visit your blog through a link they will just read the name of the blog. Should they decide to revisit the site a couple of days later they will just type that name followed by a dot com. If they do not find your blog once they hit enter they will just go somewhere else.

  1. Thanks for the useful tips on how to choose a good domain name for our blog. As per the article, always the golden rule to choose a good domain name is, the domain name must be short and simple, easy to remember, try to choose a ".com" extension domain name. But the real fact is almost all possible short and easy to remember domain names have been already taken. Though all the good domain names have been already taken, only few of them are being used. Most of them are kept parked for sales. Such domain names can be obtained by having a domain bargain from the current registrant. The contact details of a domain name holder can be obtained by having a whois lookup at WhoisXY.com
