Building and running your website consists of equally important factors, some basic and others, more important.
This article will be about maintaining traffic to your website, once you get it. Also, will your brand name play a part in how you rank.
Your brand and URL domain name, isn’t what makes you successful within the online world.
Well, that sounds pretty self-explanatory. Once you get traffic, does it stay or do you have to maintain it?
There are lots of people who wonder, if, once they receive their traffic can they take a break, go overseas, or just not work as hard and still keep that traffic that they have.
Traffic is about bringing people to your brand. It’s your virtual piece of real estate, and that’s also what brings me onto something that I was thinking about the other day, to change the subject for a moment, because this is interesting enough.
Building a website, if you have chosen a correct strategy is like building a house.
This is something that so many people tend to forget about.
I mean, imagine working just a normal job, and being constantly reminded that you really haven’t achieved anything.
This is something that goes so well, with that constant thought that so many people think about.
I think one of the reasons no one actually starts this journey is because they don’t have the correct information.
It’s something that hit me when I first started, hey, this is exactly like building a house. Which also, makes it so much more meaningful.
Your website, your domain name is a virtual piece of real estate.
When people hear this, and think they want it but can’t have it, it’s important to recognise that you can be shown how (like, if you are reading this right now).
If you want to start your own virtual piece of real estate, then keep reading because after I finish the post, I’ll show you how you can start this. Also, have me as your mentor/coach (which is more helpful than just being on your own).
At Wealthy Affiliate, choosing your own domain name for your brand/URL has never been so easy.
This platform is somewhere, where if you try it for even 5 minutes, you won’t leave.
When you purchase a domain, it’s one of the most important and successful feelings you’ve ever felt.
Once you have that domain name, it’s yours, and is something that you need to build. Whether you decide to move quick or slow is up to you, but once you’ve bought the domain name, no one can take it off you, which is equally as important.
A domain in your name is an asset, and increases in value over time. It’s just like any other real real estate.
When purchasing a domain name, you want to pick something that’s brandable.
In the next few sentences, I’m going to show you some ways, that will help you pick or choose a better domain name.
For starters, Wealthy Affiliate has a perfect search tool that works the best for finding URLs.
You can access site domain names, through the left panel at Wealthy Affiliate, go to websites, and then domains.
When choosing something for your domain name, you need to know, it doesn’t have to be interesting or captivating.
If you look at some of the big name brands out there, you will see that they are not standout names by any means, I mean take Google for example.
Something else that you should know is, when choosing a brand name it doesn’t have to be a keyword either.
Again, when looking at the big brand domain names, they have made there success a lot from hard work, and that hard work over time.
So just remember when choosing a name, pick something that you are happy with. It doesn’t need to stand out and be something to flash or catchy.
So for instance, Apple doesn’t sell Apples, yet they imply that name.
Apple are one of the largest technology industries in the world and they evolved into that over time.
You can choose any name you want and then build what you chose into something else.
But, if you want to make an income in the long run, and be a brand that is successful as well, then it has to make sense.
When your sign up for Wealthy Affiliate, try testing the domain platform out, by typing in different ideas that you may think of, and remember, they don’t have to be about something that you like, remember the Apple example.
There is also another place that you can use to search for domain names and it’s called “namemesh”
The way this searching platform works is by, typing in any name, and it will then give you a number of different examples in different categories.
For example, some of the categories are common, new, short, extra, etc.
Well under those different categories will be names that match.
If you want to try this platform out then go ahead, it is very helpful.
When trying to decide over a.com .net.org, ideally you want to choose a.com
I’ll explain what they all mean now.
.net stands for.network then.org stands for.organization and finally.com stands for .commercial.
It all depends on what you are aiming for, but if you want success in affiliate marketing, then make your choice a.com.
When choosing a domain name, you will be the ultimate resource for choosing what you want.
I suggest you use Wealthy Affiliate and pick a domain by searching through there platform.
It’s also important to note that that your URL doesn’t need to match what your brand name is.
As mentioned earlier URLs are just the address or where your are parked, but it does make it helpful.
It’s more of an exciting factor that your buying a domain and entering in virtual real estate.
This is an investment that’s probably one of the best investments you’ve ever made.
Iv also mentioned throughout other articles one of the really awesome features Wealthy Affiliate has, and that’s the move button.
The move button that’s in the domains section at Wealthy Affiliate allows you to move one website to another.
One you have been with Wealthy Affiliate for roughly a few months, and upgraded, you can then move Your siterubix.com to your own domain.
That’s the end of this post, i hope you enjoyed it!
