You believe a longer .com is always best?Hi
i would consider a longer .com, maybe three or four words if appropriate
I'm launching a website on a .net domain. We will see if I regret it.but that would depend on the keywords of the name.
Yeah I use a .org for a charity project. I don't even know if we own the .com domain.might even consider .org, if it was relevant.
So you would do alternative .com domain @amplify?Mine isn't up there: It's usually neither shorter or longer, but an alternative in .com.
Ex: FunWarehouse.com is taken but MerryWerehouse.com isn't. Bad example as the latter could have a Christmas connotation but didn't want to spend 30 minutes finding one.
I consider that longer and alternative.I would say as Amplify and Biggie: Different / Variation / Longer .com (Longer only if Different and Variation don't get anything good). By "variation", I mean "Get...", "The..", etc. Not really "longer", but still a bit
Hope you didn't pay a premium @Bulloney.I was looking to register Navigator.com a few hours ago and it was taken as were the .net and .org. However I was able to register one of the few new gTLD's that were available Navigator.Online.
Automated appraisals should not be trusted..Probably a stupid move, but when I saw that Nameworth valued Navigator.com for three million dollars I thought I might take a leap of faith.
I hear you. What type of different .com domain?A different .com,
I hear you. What type of different .com domain?
You mean parking PPC revenue?I have a few cctld and a ntld but they all make money. I have two .net's that I registered years ago before I could afford the .com.
Good way to do it.I used to register a lot of key words, floridarvsales.com, etc.. Now if I can't find the name I want in .com, I look for a different subject. I don't want to spend money on a compromise.

I would definitely pick an alternative, whether it be longer or shorter. However, I would try not to exceed 3 words with the first being something like "the" or "a" unless it has a jingle to it to make it easy to remember or is a commonly used phrase such as "Throw caution to the wind" (throwcautiontothewind.com).So you would do alternative .com domain @amplify?
Most people think they know about SEO and digital marketing.A lot of businesses use really bad domains. Plurals, dashes, numbers, etc. I joined car dealer forum once and listened to the "experts" that provide DMS and websites. I would ask a question and a two pages of copy and pasted SEO advice.
I only give domain and branding advice when asked.When I pointed out one of their clients was using a domain with a dash and a competing dealership had the better domain, which meant the dealership was loosing 10% or more of their traffic to it's competitor they freaked out and asked me WTF was I doing in their forum ( wasn't their forum ).
Agree !Buying a good domain isn't just good for your business, it's good for your customers too.
The best advice is to create well-thought-out content that you would be looking for if you were to be searching for it. People don't want to put that much effort into content creation and think there's a magic recipe for getting more traffic without having good content though. So, they'll pay hundreds to thousands and might see a bump because they're using proper markup or sectioning off content better, but that's about it.Most people think they know about SEO and digital marketing.
This is the way.The best advice is to create well-thought-out content that you would be looking for if you were to be searching for it.
Yes. Good content requires a lot of time.People don't want to put that much effort into content creation and think there's a magic recipe for getting more traffic without having good content though.
I see this all the time from shill marketing companies.So, they'll pay hundreds to thousands and might see a bump because they're using proper markup or sectioning off content better, but that's about it.
Just my opinion...
Why not a shorter domain @Furquan?I go with a longer version of .COM or some alterntative .COM
