Choosing a blog name is a very important thing to do in blogging. Good blog name will end up making your blog very notable and renowned. However, there are rules to follow in order to choose a good blog name. This article discusses three tips which you have to follow to arrive at good blog name and they include:
- The blog name must describe the blog in question.
- The name must be very easy to remember &
- The blog must be equal to the domain name.
Exact Description of the blog
Many people will assess your blog through its link posted in another site. This is why it is very important that your blog name should be an exact description of the blog itself. Of course, people will have to see the link to your blog before ever reading it. If the name given in the link is an exact description of the blog, then your people who need such information can easily access it.
Nobody would engage himself in brain tasking exercise in order to know what your blog talks about. You need to make your blog name simple so that people will know the kind of information contained in it and therefore access it.
The names should be easy to remember
Despite the fact that the blog name should describe the content of the blog, yet you should be able to make it easy to remember. You do not need to make your blog name ambiguous; else people will not easily remember it. The essence of making a blog name easy is that your visitors would like to quote it off hand. They will even be able to inform their friends about the blog and give them its name if it is easy to remember.
Assuming your blog talks about food, exercise and sleep, it will be an exact description of the blog if you choose the food, exercise and sleep detail blog but you sure know that the name would not be easy to remember.
The blog name should be equal to the domain
Lots of people find it difficult to follow this rule. The major reason for this is that it is difficult to find a domain that has not been registered. When people struggle to get a domain name, they cannot help but use it for whatever blog name they want.
However, if your domain name is not in line with your blog name, then it will be difficult to retain your visitors. Visitors assume that your domain name is simply your blog name followed by dot com. When people visit your domain through a link, they do not care to memorize the domain name. The next time they decide to visit the domain; all they need to do is to type the blog name and add dot com. Your visitors would be frustrated and look elsewhere if they do not succeed. Try as much as possible to make your domain name equal to your blog name in order not to lose visitors.
