Does the web address really matter

Hi
I'm going to build an Amazon Affiliate site on Woodpress. I've bought the theme (Kingdom) and several plugins from Codecanyon, but I can't seem to settle on a name for the site.

As its going to be a multiple product site and not just one particular product, I don't think the sites name is going to make much difference to the way people find the site as they will be searching for a product inside the site and not for me personally or my site.

Not sure what to do here and hoping someone will be able to point me in the right direction.


Thanks a lot.

Michael

Hey!

Some careful thought should be taken by choosing a domain name on your website. To be positive, you'd probably not decide to make use of a non specific title for your own web site, even without understanding the science behind that, but it is more important than companies recognize. An effective domainname must be focused, straightforward, obvious, and intuitively relevant for your business.

Happy operating :)

Hi
As its a multi niche site, something like householdsupplies.com would sound OK as most of the products found on Amazon are connected to the household in some way.

You see this is one of the reasons I find it hard to come up with a suitable domain name. If I was selling one niche, say fishing tackle, then it would be much simpler to come up with something like hooklineandsinker.com, focused, straightforward, obvious, and intuitively relevant.

I'll keep brainstorming until I come up with something that does't look to out of place.

Manks.

Short answer, it does not matter what your domain name is. Exact match domains help in the short term, but its not the advantage it once was. More important is branding and choosing something people will remember easily.

I've seen sites with names that have no definition, rank in many different niches. For example (I'm making this up, no idea if it exists) Greebu.com - Can you tell me what it would be about? It could be about *anything* and it could rank #1 in any search engine.

Choose something that you can brand. If it has a relevant keyword, that's great - but absolutely not necessary.

Best regards :)

An often used keyword may be used as the domain name or the site name, for example, 'all of your needs' if you are selling multi-products on your site. Thus you will have a good chance of a swarm of visitors on your site.

No matter what is your domain, The matter is your keyword name. If you lunched your Amazon affiliate business then you chose your product name in your keyword and if you chose your domain name by your product name then its good for your business.

The domain name matters because this is part of your branding for the entire website. Take Affilorama.com for example. It does not spell our affiliate marketing (although it is close to it), but the name of the site itself drives the brand.

Are the niches you're going into similar or related to one big niche? Try looking at it from that angle; see what the niches have in common and take it from there. Like if you're going to be selling kids clothing, accessories and also fertility programs and parenting eBooks, then you can have domain name like allboutkids.com

Hope that helps. All the best!

It does matter as you have to make sure the address will somehow reflect the niche you're in. Aside from that, you also have to make sure that the contents of the site will conicide with the address as this will be the first one that the visitors will read, so at least make sure that it will give them an idea of what you're site is all about...

I don’t think it means a lot, but still it has some impact initially. If you have already reached to the hearts and requirements of people then it is really not matter if we have this or that web address. But, as I said for early parts, it is better to have attractive web site.
