Default Best Domain Name For Increased Traffic??

I was looking through Sedo and found some other domains which seem to be huge bargains considering their marketing potential:


Which do you think would be a good buy??

depends on the content and the offers that you can find. if the domains have some history they could help you fast track your seo but if they don't its more about your content good luck.

I wouldn't bother. From everything that I have done online, I have found that the domain name doesn't help with SEO Ranking. It's the SEO you apply to the domain.

What you're trying to accomplish is get a domain that people will 'guess at' in their browser. That's a long shot.

But I do agree... if there is history (and not spam history... which could be worse then having a new domain name) you could fast track some SEO.

But I would rather be safe and buy the name I want.

Hope this helps! Good luck!

according to my experience A high traffic domain name must be keyword rich, related to the service, must be short and easy to remember.

All are good. But I think your SEO will decide what will happen to that "Best Domain Name". You can have the best name in all the world but with mediocre SEO planning, you won't reach greatness.

Good domain names can only get you so far. It is what you do with those domain names that will take you somewhere worth being.

Choosing the domain name is very tricky as this would be the one to identify your web site among others. You should choose one which is easy to remember and catchy as the last thing you would want is someone wanting to visit your page but just cannot get a hold of what to type in the address bar. You should also put into consideration the availability of SEP options for you to make use of.
