The name is a very important part of the blog. Naming is not a small task because once you gave the name to anything or any person it will become its future. When I decided on the name of this blog, I had no idea about it. I have done mistakes that I am informing you to avoid that same mistakes.
If you want to become a pro blogger like a professional, before starting the blog your few days should be gone to decide the name of the blog.
I have given the name bloggingdept to this blog. I have done it one and a half years ago. At that time it was easy to rank but now the ranking has become too tough for that you have to follow all the ranking factors. The naming of the blog is one of the ranking factors.
Naming is the first factor for ranking the blog. Now a day the naming has become very tough. You have to think deeply about naming. At the time of naming the people found some confusion as follows-
- Can I use my name as the name of my blog?
- Can I use a common word like Tech, blog in my blog name?
- I am not sure about my niche, what will be best?
There is much more confusion in the mind of people but the above questions are common to all types of thinking. I am going to share some ideas, by which you can easily pick your blog name. Every name is good but there are some factors that play important role in name optimization.
Try Again and Again to write the good name
Now you need to relax. Take a pen and paper and start to write any name which is running in your mind. You can use the word but don’t use your name as the name of your blog because when anybody uses a personal name, it represents the personal thing. When you use your name as a blog name, you lose the chance to create the niche for your blog and will become a personal blog, therefore, you should not use your personal name.
