    SK Holdings Company Ltd: choosing a domain name

    The writer of SK Holdings Company Ltd said

    The domain name is a very important part of your website. The careful selection and key wording of your domain name is one of the most crucial part of the initial steps in setting up any website. Here are the 5 tips for choosing a domain name.
    1.Buy shorter domain name:- It is always better to choose a shorter domain name for your website. Shorter names are also easier to remember than long names or phrases. Choose something that would make you click on if for further information.
    2.Keyword inside:- It is better to add your keywords in your domain name. This is because many people look for websites using keywords. Having keywords separated by dashes in your main domain will help you in getting traffic through organic search results. If you want your site to be ranked high by the search engines then it makes a huge difference if your main keyword is in your domain name.
    3..com is the best:- .com is always the best extension to have, if people can't remember what is , that is the one they will try. Buy the others as well if they are available and redirect them to the .com. There have been rumors that the extensions other than .net, .com or .org , have less weight with search engines.
    4.Expired domains:- You can look up expired domains that are either short, have good names, have keywords, or have back links. These domains can be like gold because the past owners may have put in a great deal of effort in getting web traffic. These types of domains should be considered if you already have an existing domain name. The price tag is usually a lot higher than a brand new domain name.
    5.Put up a parking page:- After you buy a domain, immediately put up a parking page with keywords and some inbound links. Even if you donít intend to use the domain for several months, aged domains have more value and legitimacy to search engines. You want a portfolio of domain names that is aged like fine wine. This way, when you start new projects, it will seem like the sites have been up for months or years and have just gained popularity and content.

    wow, thank you for your post - you inspired me to put a parking page to domain i've been lazy to work on till now

    re 3rd item - i advise not to just redirect other domains to your main one
    but to put at least one page with relevant content online and link it to your main website. those "satellites" push your main site at once!

    re 4-th item - absolutely agree. but this is not necessary to hunt for expired domains. some people are abandoning their old unused names and sell them at cheap. (i myself bought a good domain that was about to expire at namecheap's marketplace for smth like $8. it was without backlinks though )
