Blogging has been a platform that many individuals have leverage to make some good money. However, many people think that they can just set up a free blog on WordPress or Blogspot, start writing down their thoughts (as if anyone cares) and start rolling in dough. That dream has been crushed numerous times once people in this category realize nobody wants to know about their opinions. In order to make a blog work the first and foremost thing you need a killer name for your blog.
But in order to fulfill a need you will do best to make sure that you are discoverable online. By that I mean that your blog needs to be called something that will get people interested in what you’re talking about. This article will cover some of the best ways to make sure that this overlooked step (creating a killer name for your blog) is maximized to give you the most leverage.
Create a Killer Name For Your Blog
Make it Relevant
In regards to what you’re actually going to be blogging about, I will leave that for a different article. For now just make sure that it is something that people want to read—it fulfills a need. Here is an example; many people are computer illiterate in the world. While this is changing, there is still the segment of the population that either refuse to get with the times or simply aren’t that advanced e.g. they can’t reformat a hard drive. So if you were going to create a blog to fulfill a need, computer tutorials would satisfy this requirement.
Don’t Miss Be a Blogger And Not a Beggar
Now I say that to say this: if you were creating said computer tutorial blog, then your blog’s name not only has to be catchy, but it also has to be relevant. Relevancy is dictated by humans in how closely the name of your blog matches the aim of your blog. If you are talking about computer tutorials and your blog’s name is computertutorialsblog (dot) com, then your audience instantly knows what they are clicking on. This is not only relevant to your niche but also killer name for your blog. While this is good for people, it’s also good for robots. Google is the site that will get you found. If your name is relevant to what your topic is then you are going to rank higher on Google and consequently get found online.
Keep It Simple Stupid (K.I.S.S)
Just K.I.S.S it to make a killer name for your blog. Many people fall for the trap of complicating their blog name. This is a trap because, just like writing about your “thoughts, opinions, and interests”, the fact of the matter is that nobody cares; making a computer tutorials blog called “Psychedelic Ruminations of Instructional Computing” will just get you a WTF? from the audience. Make sure to not only make your blog name relevant, but also make it easily understood. Some things to consider when you choosing a simple and killer name for your blog:
- Use small words.
- Don’t make the name too long.
- Use words relevant to your topic.
- Match the name of your blog to the domain name of the site.
