Tips which domain to Choose, Domain effects on SEO

domain-to-chooseTo start blogging any one needs a domain. They don’t even care that which domain they should prefer they just purchase a domain which feels cool and nice to read. Almost everyone while purchasing a domain is a newbie and he/she don’t think about SEO which would effect your traffic. If you ask bloggers about “Which domains to choose and if it affect site SEO then they would probably reply that domain doesn’t matters at all. But according to me there is a big secret of SEO behind choosing domain. Confused?

Have you heard about keywords which are very important to get your site’s article at the top rank in search engine.

 

Tips which domain to Choose, Domain effects on SEO

You have searched on google thousand of times. Have you ever noticed the search results. Google finds the articles by using the keywords that a user types on Google Search.

Google sees these things while filtering a search result to see that if keywords are appearing or not.

  1. Article Heading
  2. Site Name (If article heading is small enough to give space to Site name)
  3. Meta Description
  4. Site backlinks
  5. Site domain name
  6. Permalink
  7. Page Rank etc

 

Now we would concentrate on 5th point. If you read some articles which would tell you how to optimized search engines. Then you will find that they also mention that “Article permalink should contain focus keyword so that search sentence would match your permalink”. You know that in search engine results there is site url before permalink. Now you can conclude that if it matches your domain name too then  it would raise your SEO.

 

domain-seo

Have a look on this  above screen shot. The circled words are the site’s name and site’s url. As you can see that the searched sentence has matched with the site’s url and the site’s name. It is now proved that Domain name effects Site SEO heavily.

 

Things to keep in mind while choosing domain:

  • Don’t use lengthy name : Choosing lengthy name would hide your article’s permalink and main keywords in search results.
  • Choose related to your niche (Highly important) : If you want to run a blog related to mobile then think and choose domain which has mobile word.
  •  Don’t use words which are non-related to your niche : The biggest mistake I have done that I have used the word “Addiction” in my site’s domain as the word addiction has no relation to my site’s SEO.
  • Go for top level and international domains like .com , .net , .org : One more mistake I have done that I have used .in as it was cheap @Rs.99 only :p . Don’t register domains referring to as specific country for example .in , .pk , .uk , etc. Try to use top level domain and don’t use a sub-domain like .blogspot.com . As it makes your site url a bit long and adsense also accepts .blogspot only if the site is too good.
  • Don’t register a domain with different extention if it is already registered : For example : Using www.example.org even it is already registered with .com then your visitors may go to www.example.com by mistake. As people have a habit to open .com website.

 

Domain effects on SEO Conclusion:

Now you have understood that using the word related to your niche in your site domain Effects SEO. So, it should be chose according to your niche only don’t be in confusion that it won’t affect SEO.

That’s all hope that you will register domain wisely. Please let me know if any point is left over. Give your feedback as comments.

 

 

Benefits Of Premium Hosting Over Free Hosting

As a Blogger I know that every one wants to spend as much less amount to run their blog. Thanks to Google that they have provided an awesome platform of blogger.com so that everyone could create their blog without spending a single penny. Coming back to the Topic, to continue your blog you have to pay for Hosting. Because of this big reason many bloggers start their blog with free hosting, believe me free hosting is just a crap they will just withdraw all the promises they do in their features. Instead of free hosting you can go for Blogger.

So I am here to share some Benefits of premium hosting over Free hosting.

 

Hosting Limit

 

In order to provide free hosting no one can provide you unlimited Bandwith and Space, they must add some limits to provide free hosting to everyone. Also they limit you in other things like you cant host unlimited domains. If your blog reach bandwith limit then no one will be able to access your blog, and if it last longer it will de-index your site from Search engines.

On the other hand Hosts like “Hostgator” give your unlimited hosting without restrictions.

 

 Premium-Hosting

 

Security

 

Another major risk of free hosting is that your blog/website has always lack of security as free hosts never focus on your security. There are high chances that something will go wrong sooner or later.

Paid hosting is completely different they run advance security software tackle with disasters. You can trust on Premium and Famous hosts which has been known and trusted by many people.

 

Server Speed

 

Similarly free hosts use slow connection line which will provide low loading speed and bad user experience. Big loading time effects SEO badly and will throw your SERP at last.

Whereas Premium hosting use premium connection which will give faster loading time and thus better user experience.

 

One-Click Script Install

 

Free hosting usually doesn’t have features of one click Script installer, resulting you may have to manually download, upload install the script which is very annoying.

But many Premium hosts have one Click Script Install feature with the help of Softaculous, Fantastico etc.

 

Suspension Problem

 

The biggest threat for free hosting user is that their account can be suspended with/without any reason thus all the files and databases will be lost and probably cannot be recovered. Free hosts have rights to suspend your account and you can’t question.

On the other hand Premium Hosting promises you that they will backup your data, compensate with server down time. There are very few chances of suspension in Premium hosting (Suspension might be done if you violate their terms and condition.)

 

Support

 

Again another big help that you get from Premium hosting that most them Provide you with Live 24×7 online support, they also have features to submit ticket.

And in free host as you know there is no major support system, they don’t have live chat support . Even your Help tickets are neglected or unanswered by them.

 

Final Words

 

I was too using free hosting in earlier stage of my blogging carrier but sooner I got many problems like Downtime, Server outage, Poor support and less bandwith, Space for my website. Even I was having problem to upgrade my WordPress version.

According to me free hosting is just a crap and if you are serious for blogging, close your eyes and go for Premium hosting. Spend some bucks and go with popular hosts, believe me they will give you awesome features.

How to Get Higher Page Rank.

 

Original Content.

Its a common thing that every blogger whether he is expert or a newbie, he starts his blogging career by stealing content from other blogs just by using ctrl+c and ctrl+v :D, Even I was doing the same thing. But in fact one should write an article rather than copying it.  Duplicate contents put a bad impact on search engines and your readers. You must be knowing about the Google adsense, the king of monetizing any blog. Google adsense also doesn’t allows blogs having copied content blogs to get into their program.

If you accept guest post then don’t forget to do its plagiarism test. If you find the article 100% plagiarism free then only publish it.

 

Frequency of Publishing Articles

The most big thing to get more Page Rank and handsome traffic is none other than frequency of publishing articles. (i.e., consistency of posting in your blog). Just keep posting regularly. You should try to post an article daily,but if you can’t then make a proper routine and try to follow.

Make sure that you post at least one article in 2-3 days. If some how you are going at holidays or if you can’t publish the article at that particular period then you can use the Scheduled Publishing method in which you can choose the date and time in which the article would get published, this kind of option is available in both blogger and wordpress platforms. My opinion is that you should focus more in quality of your content than to focus on the amount of articles you publish, you may write an article in 2 days gap but you should write a killer article which will drive more traffic to your blog than a massive amount of poor article would bring.

 

Keyword.

Whenever you publish in your blog then do keyword research and choose some nice keywords which would attract search engine traffic like a magnet. Better keywords ranks your article at higher position in search engine Results. It would bring a huge traffic for you via Search engines. You may use Google’s Keyword tool.

Back link building.

Back links are the another major thing for search engines indexing and effective rank on search results. It also has a major hand behind better Page Rank for any blog. So try to build massive amount of links for your blog. Some of the popular and effective way of building back links are :- Blog commenting, Guest posting, Social bookmarking etc.
