Tips to consider before buying used or old domain name.
First step to start a blog is to register or buy a domain. If you are thinking to purchase a old domain then its a good thing as pre-owned domain has more seo benifits. But buying a used domain name should be done carefully. You should research about the domain that you want to purchase. As there is chances that it might be banned or blacklisted, which will create a huge problem for seo and adsense approval.
So keep these below thing in mind before an old domain.
Age of domain is a big factor for the its trust and value. Simply as you know that more the old more greater SEO. Its age also effects its popularity and regular visitors to the site. I would recommend you to try to buy an old domain name as it has less chances to used for spamming or is banned or blacklisted.
Many bloggers prefer .com extention domain name at first choice as it is considered to be a good choice and reputation of any blog. So try to buy a international domain name like .com, .net, .org. Buying domains that is referredto any country like .in,.pk,.uk etc downgrades your website in the mind of your visitors. Although its extension doesn’t matters much but its a good thing if you buy a .com.
High Page Rank
Selecting a domain name and it has higher PR adds a +1 for you SEO. Having good page rank not only gives you search engine traffic but also a large amount of guest post for your blog. That will convert your work into traffic smoothly and easily. Good page rank also gives you a greater resell value for your domain and creates a nice reputation in front of your friends and rivals.
There a few domains that is quite large. And it is not recommend to go for domains that has much amount of characters. Consider to buy a small sized domain name as it will be easy for you and your visitors to visit your blog. Having small domain effect SEO ranking too. Also keep in mind that you must go for a name that professional and matches your niche as it will represent your blog forever and can’t be changed.
