Surprisingly, I’m frequently asked what new sites should be named, more specifically, I’m asked what the domain name should be.It’s not really my specialty or anything, but since I build websites, I should know how to name them.
I think there’s a need for a whole new industry, people to name websites. Maybe they can work under SEO specialists. I must say though, it doesn’t matter.
Yes, there are the obvious things you can say, and I say them only so someone doesn’t say them to me:
– Pick something memorable
– Pick a name that contains the keywords you want to rank for
– Try to get something short
…and on and on.
But this leaves the asker of the question at square one, because you didn’t actually give them a suggestion on what to name it.
Try these name generators:
Switchplane Business Name Generator (my favorite)
Pick something you can live with. Try to keep it relevant so that if you change something, you don’t need a new name. Most of all: Just pick something so I can build your site. If you hate the name tomorrow, get a new one.
A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.
