Keyword Combo Grey Area

owlglass

Tired of looking to Google, Yahoo and others for qualified search results? Hard to believe as it is, there are still Google searches than come back…empty. These are opportunities. Domainers are constantly looking for opportunities. Curling the ball over home base is the challenge. Using a name to create and draw traffic is a domaining varsity sport.

Opportunities to define the terms with a website make SEO results. These will draw all traffic because you yourself have established the primary web source authoring the terms and the information coordinated with it. Being the top Google result or only Google result is pay dirt for domainers.  Yet astonishingly many domainers strive to make their sites look like carbon copies of others in deeply entrenched topic categories.

Finding unique terms for the keyword combination is an exceptional way to draw traffic. One such word might be “murse”, a slang term for man-purse. Attach a keyword word part like -store, -shop, and/or “TV” and you’ve got a domain. Murse.tv, murse.com, and combined keyword domain names are taken. I checked. But many of the pages were simple landing pages or parked hosting company template parking pages.

There is a SEO discoverability opportunity in the YouTube search engine. Finding unique SEO phrases and providing content to match up with them is the Holy Grail of domaining. Establishing the website behind an appropriate domain name is half the fun. Doing it ahead of the competitors in the domain world is grabbing the brass ring.

Architecture of the site plan should exploit every option to group keywords with content. Images of generic items that match TV show keywords can dramatically enhance the SEO profile of any such video based product website. And succeeding seasons of the television show showing on TV and being released on DVD around the world drive traffic cyclically.

Value can be found in surprising places, like mushrooming Indian peppers for weapons and newfound Google independence in China.  But lightweight sites can have poor “nutrition value”. A truly discoverable website has content as appealing as twice-fried cherry pie and stickiness to match. Gold nuggets of delectable content should be waiting for visitors.

Time to take the video opportunity to the next level. I’ve had some questions and comments regarding my Grey’s Anatomy entry and would like to expand on some of the ideas expressed there. But any TV show or domain name can draw users and visitors likely to click ads and links. Their extended reading time will make SEO bots record your site as an authority.

There is a gold mine of search engine discoverability for domainers willing to follow the steps and establish key points of internet authority on certain topics. Identifying some key elements in the domain development cycle can exploit searches for users wanting new content enjoyment. Grey’s Anatomy is merely one avenue to try for a domain destination that will bring international traffic.

Video clips of popular television shows are one of the most searched items online. Episode capsules and a detailed analysis speak to hardcore fans dying to know what their favorite characters did and then what happened next. Grey’s Anatomy is universes sexier than lithium ion electric batteries and healthcare regulation. Let them know what happened.

Escapism from recession and difficult financial times mean SEO results for things like video entertainment (that is accessible immediately online) are through the roof. Consider optimizing all video tags and links and images with buzzwords from the shows to get visits from fans.

Keyword combinations at YouTube yield favorite fanvids. But you can watch 300 versions of the same episode of Grey’s Anatomy but only the 300th will have that missing extra scene that makes all of the rest pay off. Buying the episodes on iTunes is easier when buyers know what’s in the episode they want. By providing a text assist, the browser can find the episode details for the proper episode.

Fans know the best scenes and search for them again and again. But for any show, by providing a resource to review episode content is easy. And for consumers looking to buy key episodes featuring their favorite characters, this makes a website a bookmark to refer to again and again.

Website Work Explained

toolboxThe purposeful promotion of a domain name via a website takes work. When the domain investment nears payoff, the website has been completed. This is the end of the road. The next step is to prepare a price estimate for sale. This is when the mining of stats and the reporting of tracked links can be used to derive a auction price or private sale price for the domain name.

Then notifications, listings, and threads in domain forums occur for the creative marketing of the domain name to a motivated buyer for a resale. In the best case scenario, the added value and utility of the web directory and the hits recorded for the current content will combine to form a potent and re-usable entity for further website success and profit creation.

The road to a profitable website and url resale might be said to require a static amount of work. But the domain name professional grooms multiple websites at once for best results. These efforts  make the webmaster look to find ways to minimize effort on the promotion side and maximize return on the advertising and click through side.

Any way that a webmaster can create marketable effort and interest online for potential visitors will return value. A website can sell a product or an idea, or guide other visitors to follow. A visitor can enjoy cartoons, witty snippets, or download documents and files. The experience is what they remember.

If the keywords and topics for the websites are congruent and/or similar the multiplicity of the submission effort for links and articles becomes streamlined. One the quickest ways to get a blog degraded in value via the comment analysis tool is to include comments that are spam. The comments from visitors with return urls and trackback site destinations with similar keywords are ideal. But this practice does not always operate within acceptably realistic usage parameters.

Is it likely that a person looking to promote their blog or website will be looking at blogs or websites with topical subjects, articles and images not related to their own website content? Of course! Posts by other webmasters visiting your website are surgical strikes at your SEO ranking. But that link can’t post back to new content that never gets created! Website work keeps new posts churning. Sequence the article publication using the calendar.

Your site has to offer something or it will miss out on a big type of web promotion. Site reviews are generated by the quality of an experience a web user has at a particular site. Positive or negative rankings still build buzz and SEO value for a website. Even product reviews of vaguely related gadgets give researchers and consumers a reason to find your site and check it out.

Many online sites function as repositories where the reviews can be optimized for SEO discoverability eternal to your site. Website work accomplishes this pursuant to a strategy. But the reference url will link directly to your site.  The top page must be integrated with the site plan. What will the bots see?

Bots scrub a site for indexed content including image tags, titles, code names and database titles. Content doesn’t have to be bombastic and long winded text blocks (ahem) but can be cartoons, humorous snippets, reactions to industry news and coverage of industry and topical events.

Webmasters who say they have no times  for their abandoned blog are lying. Copying and pasting a news article with one or two introductory sentences, replying to a couple comments, and putting in one link in the web link area takes 5 minutes. No updated posts for months means the blog owner wouldn’t or didn’t take 5 minutes on any one day to improve their site. Website work requires some time at least once a week.

Referencing responsibly is another key concept many bloggers and webmasters miss out on. If there is a story, blurb, or post about an individual or an organization, make sure to include somewhere in the text the personal or corporate website for that individual or organization. Don’t like the source item? Find the press release or original link it was written from and do it better!

Website work included upgrading graphics, link building, article submission, evangelizing, forum posting, and more. Writing new content, gathering news and information, and reviewing other sites for tips and tricks enables a competent webmaster to optimize their site for SEO analysis and visitor perusal. With ads to choose, an audience to build, and complete freedom to design the website, a webmaster’s work is never done.

Make your Domain Name Choice

Simple suggestions here.

The first thing you need to do if you plan on building a website is to choose a domain name. The domain name is what people type into their browser to find your website. It will look something like: www.MyDomainName.com. You want your domain name to be something that is directly related to what you have to offer on your site.

The .com at the end of the domain is the most popular. Some people don’t realize that there are other choices. You could have a .org (organizations), .gov (government departments), .net (intended for Internet service providers), .edu (educational institutions), or .biz (for companies). There are other names that are lesser known, but we will not bother exploring these right now. In addition, each country also has its own code. The United Kingdom has .uk, Australia has .au, and so on. The list of country codes is hundreds.

With the .com names being so popular, there are not a lot of good ones left. Because of the shortage of good .com names, you may be tempted to choose a domain name other than the .com. However, it is still preferred to have a .com. The .com names have the most prestige and are better all around.

Coming up with a good .com name can at times be a little frustrating. It seems that no matter what you type in, it is already taken. There are people who constantly watch for domain names. As soon as they become available they grab them up. This is especially true for single word domain names. Your best option is to come up with a name that has two or three words that describe your website. If your goal is to get ranked highly in the search engines, and we all do, try to imagine what your customers might type into the search engines to find you. This will require a little keyword research to find out what your customers are typing in to find the products or services you will be offering. If the obvious search term is already taken, you might try adding a word in front of the domain name or at the end.

Once you have come up with three or four descriptive phrases, it’s time to go to the domain registration service. There are plenty out there, GoDaddy.com is one of my favorite, but there are many to choose from. You can now type in your phrase to see if it is available. If you are very lucky, you will get exactly what you want. But chances are you will have to try several searches. Once you have found your domain name, you can then register the name. You are now the proud owner of a domain name and a virtual real estate.

Are you confused by DNS?

To me the term “top level domain” seems confusing as the top level of the domain is actually the part after the dot. Most people are familiar with the top level domain of .com. But there are many others. For example, .com, .net, .gov, .edu, and so on.

The whole domain name system (DNS) can be confusing to many. It is a naming system for computers, or any nod connected to the internet, including such things as printers. If it where not for DNS, we would be typing in numbers for our domain names. Imagine trying to remember the numbers to all your favorite websites.

Top level domains are the responsibility of Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). They are responsible for assigning organizations to maintain the DNS top level domains. They are a non profit organization that was founded on September 18th of 1998. Not so old really.

They are also responsible for many other tasks. Before these duties fell on the shoulders of ICANN, the job belonged to the U.S. Government. The other tasks that are assigned to ICANN include such things as [internet protocol, country code, root server system management, address space allocation, and many other functions.

Basically ICANN preserves the continuing stability of the internet.

Give me your feedback if so inclined. We appreciate it.

Google Hacks For Domainers

One website domainers need to get nice and friendly with is Google. There is no more important website in the world to domain name traders and webmasters than Google. The trials and tribulations of how Google attained internet market dominance is a moot point. The fact remains that in today’s domain name market nobody can afford to do without Google tools, hacks and SEO optimization maxims.

But so many domainers skip very important Google tools and heightening SEO rules when composing their websites. The inclusions of tags on images, the use of alternate text, the proofing of the website on cross browser versions are only some examples. Ranking algorthythms operate on so many lines a webmaster practically has to be a wizard to master them all.

Submission to Google itself is a step many webmasters skip. The signing up for ad codes does not always equal full categorization in the Google universe. Page directories and indices of certain types of sites are also included in the Google page ranking index. But so many webmasters forget this and think that one Google ad submission equals total Google bot exposure. Such is not the case.

It’s not enough just to have Google adsense. There should be a Google map and many diverse types of sits tying in notices and links to the source site. Without decent attempts at development and distribution or related and topical material online, no SEO game plan can be considered worthwhile. The marketing plan must include all the facets of Google, not just the Adsense code inclusion in site HTML.

The SEO optimization wars claim many website casualties. This can be in part due to the fact that over ambitious domain name owners aim for the top hundredths or thousandth of their category without any game plan. Without a search engine result growth plan there is no basis to tie expectations to.

Google shows the way just by returning search results for terms. What kind of site is the result made of? What type of text is the key term noted from? What spiders and bots are scrubbing your page daily? The site absorbs all these data points. Feeds by themselves might be “light”, but together with an integrated hybrid of original content and text the seo value is there.

A type of snobbery can pervade the world of webmasters and domain name owners. News scrapes and press release rewrites are not “good enough” for these webmasters who need premium content or nothing. Yet these same webmasters can barely churn out 200 words a day! Investigating the way Google displays search results can show new domain name owners and seo-minded webmasters the path to seo greatness.

Any Google search will show that millions of different types of sites and keyword instances can feed into a search engine result that produces that website or a page on that website. The gateway to internet success making websites and promoting domain names is interpreting what Google is doing. Finding the threads are available for free at Google.com.

Nursing Domains

You can teach an old domain new tricks. Many years ago I had the opportunity to bid on some strategic ” nurse” names, domain names having to do with nursing and having NURS as part of the domain name morphology. But as the way of so many domainers the portfolio has thinned over the years.

One way the landscape of the domain world is changing is that development is hardly the shrug-and-begone effort it once was. Today free open source applications sturdy enough to hold thousands of viewers logged on are available for free, when in the early dawn of hosting and domaining immense investments n programming and coding and design were required.

Currently also video hosting and technology for mobile and voice applications spur new development for domains ideas that were once unaffordable pie in the sky. These names tended to sit in the “renew without review” pile for many years. After a while these names ran together in my mind and excessive spreadsheets were needed to organize them.

Many years ago I went through a names acquisition phase where many different types of domains were purchased as part of various trends. Each domainer follows their own drummer and where domain buying is involved the beat can get hot and heavy. The dispersal of them was painful like children at railway station partings.

One of these was a nursing name, a domain name having to do with the nursing field. Professional domains and the inevitable websites to follow were thought to be gold rush domains at the start of the Internet. Nursing is  hot occupational trend right now, as many private and public institutions know well. The publishing arm of the nursing and medical fields is a money maker, as those thick heavy nursing books cost big bucks.

Nursing was one of many domain trends hot a few years back, but just try finding one name with Nurse in it on a portfolio site of domains available name forum. I tried and came away with no results, even from portfolio name holders who had scads of names in the closet doing nothing. I happen to know that many nursing names I looked up and found available would have easily been in the $500 range five years ago.

I kind of wanted my old name back. Many of my names at that time operated from sort of keyword blend of important general tag nouns and trendy suffixes. I sold it later, wishing I had some ideas about how to develop it. At the time I didn’t personally know any nurses. Today my (former) domain name is parked and immobile, owned by someone who wouldn’t even answer my bid email.

That was then, this is now. I do know some nursing students and professional nurses now, and after hearing their stories I have decided to launch a nursing preparation site for individuals studying to be nurses or nurses with ongoing study responsibilities. A former black hole in my personal text writing knowledge base has been filled. I can know write some credible text for at least a minisite.

What is the potential audience for such a site? The impetus is on nursing students to master a huge amount of material and my site will service research requests for general and focused nursing information. But the viewer demographic doesn’t end there. Medical treatment lookups and general public searches for diseases and emergency treatment can populate the traffic graphs too.

Watch this space for development updates and traffic reports. And don’t ever give up on a concept you feel can make money. Some domains hold that old maxim true,  “You only go around once”. But sometimes, online, in the domain name and website development market, you can go around a second time. And it’s a hoot.

Quick and Dirty Domaining

Domain Media Real Estate. That’s how I was going to start this column, but I figure “Quick and Dirty” would get more solidly interested viewers. The fact is, we domainers spend more on media than on anything else. This market tends to be ignored by its most possibly profit-making manufacturing niche: end users.

Software, hosting, domain registration, renewals, and consultant fees and online services make up our budget items. And rightly so. We domainers are putting together the sandwich of a new website with extra mayo and a thick spread of affiliates and some extra Google adsense with no Wiki, Java dressing on the side. Video cheese optional.

Webmasters are too busy or too uncertain of their data or their product at some points in web development to manufacture their own media outlets, press channels, or mailing lists. Somehow they shrunk the cycle and left something critical out of the hopper. But now it’s time to launch the site, and some essential components are missing. Like end-users and a qualified audience of leads and demographically suitable readers/visitors.

Media warez are full of discretionary business items that can improve traffic flow and SEO caliber performance of the Internet to a  given site or web page. But a listing for some tasty warez caught my eye. Why is this a good buy? review the listing.

“Launched in Summer 2008, DomainAssets.ca has established itself as “Canada’s domain industry newsletter“. It has delivered weekly news and information about .ca to a growing subscriber list of Canada’s top domain owners and industry professionals.

Interested buyers are invited to submit offers by March 3,2010. (Business assets include DomainAssets.ca web site and content, “domainassets.ca” and “domainasset.ca” domain names, and subscriber email list). PM me if you have questions”.

I like this ad because it vends the type of drill-down media and data support surgically involved domainers and webmasters like to find. But even if you don’t have a .CA or Canadian enterprise now, you might in six months. That proves an asset down the road.

Who is the likely buyer? If you have a taste for the Canadian name market, are looking to grab geo web share from the North American continent, have a French or English name base, or even have a stable of .CA names to sell, this is a good investment.

Because it’s likely the readership is exactly your customer, client and end user. And getting the end user into the web site visitation cycle is the thing domainer dreams are made of, my owlish friends.

Domain Insider Tips for StartUps

owlblue

Every industry has its insider secrets. Domaining is the same way.  It takes time and experience to spot some of them. Not every domainer has a silver blog in his mouth, to coin a phrase. Some inside secrets on domaining some of the books , magazines, reviews and trade blogs will never tell you. To hit the ground running in the domain name game, you might try crawling first.

1. You Don’t Need Your Own Hosting Account

Chances are you probably know about three dozen people who already pay too much in too many different directions for hosting. Domainers are exactly guilty of this more than they would like to admit. Any value realization of this fixed ongoing monthly cost is welcome. This is how hosting companies make money, because nobody can optimize to the outer envelope of their server allocations (Usually).

Domainers who want the flexibility of the access time and files resources for implementing websites can be  short the necessary duration of time, so they are paying duplicate fees for stacked hosting, often with the same hosting company for duplicate names.  Some domainers may not even understand how duplicated their hosting resources are.

These hosting accounts have generous pockets or wide tranches of unused space in the file directories. There may be database allocations and bandwidth tolerances lying fallow (and feeding someone else’ s websites). Just forwarding a domain name for a while to a subfolder on a hosting account can launch a site without specific hosting expense.

Savvy webmasters and smart domain owners can barter clicks and mortar services or an I.O.U. for future advertising for some space on the hosting account. Tuning a site or installing an application, and learning the basics, can be done before the domain name or launch project has even been identified. This also gives  the administrator domain owner some “white noise” time to work without pressure of daily blog submissions or articles to publish.

2. Content Stems from Multiple Strategies

There are a variety of ways to generate a content plethora before the initial launch date of a blog or site application arrives. Once the site is launched, the SEO clock starts and the web starts churning investigative bots to extract keyword density and content attributes from existing text and updates. Experienced content makers know how to churn SEO-friendly content out that is both original and keyword dense, yet still appealing and readable.

Having a press release article ready, some url links to existing stories about you,   an “About Us’  text file,  some background on how the website idea got started and pictures or background material or history of the product or its practice can help. In the beginning, using news from other outlets is feasible if the “take” on the article is reported as original text by the (new) site author.

3. Imitation is the Most Efficient Form of Flattery

Imitating another site has its uses. It streamlines the production timeline of a site to zero and accelerates speed toward every other domain development benchmark and site growth goal.  Site architecture in original form can be problematic to conceive and rebuilding the wheel in terms of time absorption. By the time a site is ready to launch or in its first trimester, most features will have been tweaked out of recognition anyway.

If the skill set of the team lies in content and promotion, use the template, invent a logo for the domain name and move on. People can “see through” to the content. Web standards should prevail and code hacks and unique programming irregularities should be well thought out.

Working through site design hurdles shouldn’t involve heavy books and manuals and eyestrain and late nights. The heavy lifting of marketing a website and promoting a domain name  should be the link building and article submission for content, not tinkering with awkward code. This is a trap many domainers fall into.

Branding can come later. Many dominant companies have refashioned their online site colors and logo appeal over time. It’s best for the webmaster to get the hard stuff right, and leave the easy shopping to take care of itself. Fun new themes, avatars, colorations and icons are time consuming and consensus draining. Special typefaces and large images should be avoided for server side concerns.

4.  Skip the Jargon, Take the Cannolli

Every industry and especially online occupations have a herd mentality that gets carried away with itself.  Sometimes the online swirl of ideas and vibes and trends is moving too fast for a launching domainer to properly evaluate. The players are unknown and the impressions come thick and fast. Avoid leaping before you look.

Many domaining professionals will seek to sell you their services or wares before your site is ready or even if your platform or application is not right for what they offer.  The KISS mentality pervades for a reason. Others may not have your situation or understand your project boundaries. Keep to your domain development plan and only bring a new solution or custom addition into the mix if the idea lasts and won’t go away.

5. Write your own Ticket Regarding Service and Hiring Practices

Many products have hidden caveats and many services assume more knowledge and experience than you may have.  Don’t part with money until you have had time to evaluate testimonials, references, examples or project milestones. Use a banking service or credit card with buyer protection. Realize you become a vendor when completing services and a creditor when providing wares.

Use your best judgement hiring people online.  Don’t write a blank check to a programmer, hire an amateur without accountability,  or suspend passwords or administrative control over any accounts in doing so. Work with friends of friends and referred professionals with examples to show. To see if the contractor is genuine, start small and test the communication and see how the other party responds.

Work with tried and true service contractors and web development personnel who have executed results that please you.  Someone doesn’t need a Flash video to qualify to wash your car, but they might proffer some valid real proper names and phone numbers for jobs ranging in the hundreds of dollars to the thousands for critical and time sensitive website work.

Snaps Names Costs Update

Can you afford not to renew, or bulk renew? Domain investors should check themselves because backorders have just gone to nigh $70 bucks. I advise domainers with specific names to keep in the feeder to set up a special funding channel through a Paypal or business credit card that can renew or bulk renew items at your registrar and save these costly fees.

Save a little cash and prepay renewals or make sure your tickler file is updated and all administrative contacts for each domain as recorded in the WHOIS and domain name registrar account properly. Unlike some domainers, I think $69 is too much to  pay and a little elbow grease in the registrar name account should save about fifty dollars off this when organized prudently.

On February 15, SnapNames will raise the starting bid for backorders for all deleting domain names from $59 to $69.  This starting bid increase applies only to orders for names that are deleted from their respective registries (not the expiring or privately held names listed from registrar partners or sellers).

This change applies exclusively to new orders—any previously placed deleting domain name backorders will be grandfathered in and remain at a starting bid amount of $59; thus, $59 will be the opening bid if the name enters our system.  (Note, if you are the only bidder in this scenario, like today you will be the buyer at $59. If another party backorders the same name after February 15, that party’s opening bid will be at $69 and the system will alert you to raise your bid if you so elect.)

As is the case today, all non-deleting domain names will enter our system at the starting bid price specified by the listing party.  Opening bids for those names will stay at the amounts originally set.

There is no change to auction procedures.  If there is only one bidder for a name at the time of its availability, the name will be awarded to that bidder.  For names with more than one interested party, the names will go to auction and the highest bid at or above the starting bid amount will prevail.

Questions can be directed to the SnapNames support team:

Domain Fresh Ideas

racename

I hear about the movie industry how hard it is to make a movie these days because ‘everything’s been done”. The Internet and web pages are a relatively newer medium but you get a whisper of this sentiment in developer’s discussions and in domainer forums sometimes. My opinion is that the potential of the Internet to provide entertainment, information, amusement, and direction has barely been tapped.

It may be that the initial springboard of the original slate of concepts the Internet spawned in its first wave has been drained out of launch mode. But to say the “Internet is dead” (by an artist who himself keeps creating his image every few years) is presuming that the human imagination and the human experience has been summed up. We are far from that point.

The updated world we live in is making new demands on time, processes, and problems that need solutions, every day. Feasibly, I should be able to look up an address if I am walking down the street or Google map it. But what if there was a website where you could call in and have the street directions delivered via the Iphone or Quicktime converted text to voice recording? Have you ever walked the streets of your town and met up with three to five people who need verbal street directions? I do, almost daily.

This is very close to spoken GPS for the sidewalk pedestrian. I think cellphone contracts should have an allowance of these. If this information was grouped by geo maps and zip codes on a city site,  for example, any potential traveler could tap the site and click on the “spoken directions’ to understand how to get to the mall, amusement park, airport, or restaurant. This is the age of Twitter, even though not everyone knows how to use it.

Another great idea is the Great Food Truck race, where 7 “roach coaches’ take the same amount of seed money and hit the road. The challenge of finding produce and raw materials in a strange city, while navigating the nation’s highways and providing customer service to an all new customer base is compelling. Not least when it’s from a mobile business. Business case studies using the food truck “roach coach” model make sticky reading.

Domain ideas can come from something as simple as knitting instructions or installing a vacuum cleaner bag. Ever try to put a new vacuum bag in one of those old style vacuums? That’s when we really  needed the internet. These young kids today don’t appreciate how they can text or Twitter whatever they don’t know and get answers coming out of the sky.

To me, the internet was spawned to solve these problems. I want Twitter to tell me when there are twenty-five people in line at the nearest Starbucks so I can avoid it. I want to know where is the cheapest gas along my local driving routes so I can plan my errands along the cheapest tank refill. I want to scan the most important caveats to bidding on Ebay before I press “Bid”, without digesting reams of useless FAQ data on the website.

The Web is for every user. No assumption can be made about who uses it, because the runaway hit site the next day will be for a fresh wave of Internet users who just found their solution online. This launch extravaganza of traffic will occur because some smart domainer tapped a niche. Identifying a fresh niche can take observation skills and timing, adroit deal making and entrepreneurial spirit.

Like domainers have.
