Dibs! …. on that domain name.
Last Update: Jul 19, 2012
This got me to thinking, how is it possible to associate social networking with a long-tail domain name. Twitter et al aren’t exactly accommodating about @onetwothreefourfiveword handles and long-tails are hard to give out over the phone and put on business cards. I therefore went back and re-read Your First 10 Days about the variations on domain names: brands, brandable, keyword rich, etc. and decided to set myself the task of finding a 6-character brand domain name either .com or .org with the exact same word also available on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Pinterest, et al.
I spent a couple of hours on this and failed. I finally had to extend and settle for 7-characters. I managed to find and acquire one that made me smile, DibsBiz, which also happened to be available across all the various platforms.
Now I’m wondering how I should mange this? Simply 301 redirect www.dibsbiz.com and .org to my long-tail and make it clear on the long-tail site that it is a ‘division’ of DibsBiz and that all social info about it will come from DibsBiz? Or should I create a separately hosted DibsBiz site which contains a directory of all my eventual long-tail sites that DibsBiz will be tweeting, FBs, G+ for, etc.
Or…. something completely different?
Any thoughts, criticisms, abuse, help, advice as always, wanted and appreciated.
