If you already have decided the niche then its time for you to choose a blog name. But what is the best way to choose a blog name? Though there are no hard and fast rules for anything but still it is good to follow some established rules which helps you getting success.
Here are some simple rules to consider while choosing a blog name:
- Should Describe Your Blog
- It Should be related to your Niche
- It Should be Unique
- Try to Choose a Shorter Name (Easy to Remember)
- Your Blog Name and Domain Should be Same
- Brainstorm and Select a Blog Name
Let me explain you each of these rules.
1. It Should Describe Your Blog
It always leaves a good impression on readers when your blog name describes your blog content. Suppose you are a blogger and you write on SEO related articles then you should consider giving some name related to SEO, e.g “SEO Tips and Tricks” which itself describes your blog. If you are giving something like “My Blog, XYZ” etc then it does not at all describes the nature of your blog.
The most important thing: If your blog name describes the nature of your blog then the likely hood of getting a click on search results page is more.
2. It Should be Related to Your Niche
While choosing a blog name you should always consider the niche of your blog. If you are writing content on technology then you should consider selecting a name related to technology. This makes your reader comfortable with your blog.
3. It Should Be Unique
If you are really serious about blogging then get ready for a long journey, hence you should always choose a unique blog name. Unique blog name helps in getting its own place in the market and also helps in creating a brand name.
4. Try to Choose a Shorter Name (Easy to Remember)
Shorter names are easy to remember than longer names. So you should always try to pick a shorter name for your blog. It also helps in promotion of your blog, rather I would say self promotion of your blog. For example if I read your blog and I like it I may spread it with my friend circles but if the blog name is too big then no one will remember it where as a shorter name can be remembered easily.
5. Your Blog Name and Domain Should be Same
Though this is not a hard and fast rule but you should always consider choosing a blog name that is same as your domain name. In other words you should register the same domain name as your blog name, (I know its hard to get a domain name of your choice). Domain name increase the blog authority and branding value. If your blog name and domain name are not same you may loose some visitors.
6. Brainstorm and Select a Blog Name
This is last but not the least, brainstorm before finalizing your blog name as it holds a major factor in success or failure of your blog.
