I've been using H2 tags for all of my subheaders and H3 tags for any headings that need to fall under my subheadings. I like the way that it looks, and how well it separates th

As a rule of thumb, anything that is "better" for your readers (appearance wise, content wise, engagement wise) is almost always better for your search rankings. Google is looking for the best content and the best experience, that is what they continue to evolve their algorithms around. If that is your focus, they will start to find you at a higher rate and also start to rank you much better.

Yes, it definitely does matter to the search engines and it's better for your readers too!

these kinds of tags are very helpful. Don't forget to use your alt tags in images as well. Both will help you get found.

When you create small niche sites instead of an authority site, do you normally use your name one the site or do you post as admin? If you want don't want to use your name on t

I would always use my real identity on my sites. I'm promoting something and want people to be able to connect with the person promoting. There may be cases where you want to remain anonymous. In that case, just set up your site as usual and the about page can be a generic one where you just explain what the site does and so on without having to get personal. I don't really see a problem witht that. But yeah, I prefer sites that have real people behind them that you can relate too. I think it helps on the level of trust.

Thanks!

I found a do,aim name that I like, but the .com is considered a premium domain. Obviously, I'm not paying $900 for the domain. Should I change the name or buy the .org

I was also wondering the same thing. So it seems you have to pay for a domain name.

If you wish to have your own domain, yes, Dave - as opposed to a sub-domain off the SiteRubix side - those are free. They CAN rank in SEO, but it's a wee bit more difficult.

OH, and I typically use NameCheap for domain names, but WA now offers it also - new feature.

Hi. You can go with the .org if you really are set on the name, or you can change it somewhat to get close to what you want and have a .com. Kyle addressed the issue of what extensions are best, here is a link to his blog:

Agree with Michelle....I like to use .com whenever possible, even if I have to add a word at the end. BUT, if you check the .com website of the name you want AND you think you can outrank it, then go for the .org or .net. But, be sure you can outrank the .com with SEO or it may be a total waste - sorry to say. Kyle's post will likely mention the same.

It's actually not a kw specific domain. It's a domain for an authority site so it's a name I'll use for branding. I'll have to think on this a bit more I suppose.

Ah, interesting. Let me know if you have further questions then. I'll do my best!
