Choosing a Domain Name

Last Update: October 27, 2017

My Process Used to Choose a Website Name

Purposes of this post is for all you newbies out there.....I've been with WA nearly 4 months so I hope some of my experiences I share with you may help you on your journey!

I already have one website under my belt and once I finished my Certification Course a couple of weeks ago I decided to move right along to the Affiliate Bootcamp. This time I actually followed the process of using keywords (I used Jaaxy as I have a subscription) to choose my niche to promote the WA site.

Some people may take less than half an hour to choose their niche and decide on their domain name, but I tell you folks, between working full time on my day job and dealing with my 'home duties' it would have taken me approximately 3 hours. But so what right? It's not procrastination but rather a thought process that should make sense to me and my niche market....so don't rush take your time to decide because this is YOUR business.

Process I Used Following Kyle's and Other WA Members' Instructions

1. What niche will I target - An Advisor in Affiliate Marketing...see screen shot below:

I put into Google search 'affiliate marketing mentor' and 20.5 million results came up. This is clearly too much competition so I then tried to narrow it down by searching for a title called 'affiliate money makers'...this narrowed the competition down to 14.6 million.

OK we are on the right track...heading towards lower competition, but not low enough. So again I searched by expanding that is, being a little more specific to my niche and searched for 'affiliate and trader money makers' the result came in at 765,000, brilliant!

But I kept searching to see if I could get that competition even lower. Mind you in all these cases my Jaaxy search results had QSR at 0....hence always prudent to do your keyword search together with your Google search to see if they align.

As you see below my last keyword search to create my domain name came up with competition at only 390,000 QSR at zero and addresses my niche market..

Good luck finding your niche domain name!

Cheers Gina..
