You know sometimes you get that feeling of wanting something, but you can’t have. As for bloggers, one of the similar major moments is probably knowing someone got your domain already, and it’s on a .com. Sigh. 😦
Sure you can use an alternative, like .net, .org, .biz, etc. But what is with .com that makes everybody want it? Here are 3 reasons:
It’s easy to remember
People expect you to be on .com, it’s like second instinct. There are other TLDs (Top Level Domain) out there that can be good alternatives just in case your .com is already taken by another. But, there are chances that your client/friend/acquaintance might forget that you’re using a different TLD. Worst cases, they may event land on you competitor.
2. Sounds more legit
.com still sounds better and more professional. It’s too much of a commonplace already and it’s rare that you see strong brands sporting other TLDs.
3. Google will like you more
Google is predisposed to use their algorithms in delivering results to the user by searching .com websites first. I know, it’s kind of sad and disappointing. So knowing this should compel you to think twice before settling to a different TLD. You might as well add prefixes or suffixes in your domain name for you to score that .com .
And, so I did! Guess what? I’m on a .com already! Since it’s a tumultuous moment, I thought this deserves a post. Yay! 😀
I bought my domain in Pangalan.com , and had it site mapped to my existing blog! I was guided by Pangalan.com and WordPress. It’s good to learn new things! 🙂
Anyway, I hope this post helped you in one way or another! Comment below to share what you know about this! I would love to hear it!
