The first most important task in blogging world is choosing a proper and attractive blog name, as it helps in marketing and branding of our blog. Search engine like Google, Bing and Yahoo also looks at the blog title for ranking. Beyond this, good and attractive title always helps in drive traffic from search engine.
Choosing blog names is simple and easy task, but it may require some time as it requires idea generation, a lot of research, proper selection and finally finalizing the title.
So before choosing your blog name, simple rules need to be followed-
1) Describing your blog: It’s quite obvious that lots of people will see your link in your blog before reading in search engines, for instance. If they can get an idea on what the blog is all about only just by looking at the name they will surely visit it. A good and attractive blog name can help you to get a lot of visitors attracted toward your blog to read it at the first instant.
Factors essential while selecting a blog name are attractiveness, how good is it for search engines, is it keyword stuffed, etc.
2) Simple, Easy to type and remembered: If your blog advice something in general about fitness, cycling and health. So adding heading as “The Fitness, Cycling and General Health Advice Blog” would offer quite an comprehensive description of the blog, but would it also be easy to remember? It’s better to stick with simple and short names and not making your title too restrictive.
3) Blog name equal to the domain name: This point is often not considered by people, just because finding a suitable domain that has not been registered yet is a difficult task. Still if your domain name does not match the blog name, it may result in losing some readers along the way. Whenever people visit your blog via link they will only read the name of the blog. If they decide to revisit the site after some days they will just type that name followed by a dot com and in that case if they are unable to find your blog they will go to somewhere else.
