Dominate Your Domains
You’ve got a website and a domain name, and this week I want you to check out the other possible domains that you may want to buy for your site. For Example: I have my site on tamsinfoxdavies.com but I also own tamsinfoxdavies.co.uk. Apart from the obvious “domain extensions” (.co.uk, etc) you want to get the most likely “domain variations” as well. For me that would mean getting tamsin-foxdavies.com, tamsinfox-davies.com, tamsinfd.com etc.
Do you see how that would work? Once you buy the extra domains, just forward them all to your actual website. There’s two reasons to do this:
- Some people will type your domain rather than googling you, and they might not get it right. This happens a lot more often than you think, and you don’t want to lose those visitors.
- If you’ve got all the relevant domains, no one else can buy them. You don’t want people with similar company names buying YOUR domains, so go get ’em!
