Hi Folks, This is Andrew Briggs from InternetMarketingToolTips.com
with another tool tip for you. Today I would like to look at a website that
I use to do domain name research. The name of this site is DomainsBot
If you search in Google it should be the number one search result, so lets just go into the
website itself. When you first get there you are presented
with a search box where you would just put in your keyword that you've maybe done some
research on. You've come up with a keyword and you are
now interested to see if there are any available domains names related to that keyword, so,
In this example I will use a keyword related to fishing, so we've maybe done some keyword
research and we've come up with 'Fishing Made Easy',
So, you type in 'Fishing Made Easy' into the search box and instantly DomainsBot brings
up a set of results. You'll see at the top of the results you can
choose whether you want to see available domains and/or premium domains, and you can just choose
the check box appropriately for your own results. You'll also see that on the left hand side,
this is where DomainsBot really comes into it's own. It has a number of options to allow
you to modify your search, and based on that criteria, DomainsBot will present you with
a new set of results to match that criteria, so, for instance, I can search for .com's,
I can also include .net's and maybe .org's. Under here we can also search using synonyms,
which again is a great feature, one of the best features I think, under the DomainsBot
tool. So, for 'Fishing', for instance, you maybe
want to expand that to some niche keywords, so, 'FlyFishing', for instance, separated
with a comma, also 'SeaFishing' and maybe 'CoarseFishing'... 'CoarseFishing'.
And you can also include hyphenated keywords as well, so for instance, 'Fly-Fishing', 'Coarse-Fishing'
and 'Sea-Fishing'. So we have a number of, we have a number of
synonyms there to use. As we select them these things are updated in the search results.
It's also suggested a number of synonyms for 'Made' which are not suitable so we'll just
get rid of them hitting the 'X', and for the synonyms for 'Easy', we'll replace
some of them with 'Simpler' and 'Easier', so, as you keep changing your criteria, DomainsBot
continually updates its list of results. Another good part is you can also add Suffices
or prefixes, so, if you hit the 'Edit' button you can either add a lot of prefixes yourself
or you can choose from a number of pre-defined lists from the dropdown box.
The reason this is a great feature is because you maybe haven't thought of some of the words
or options, and by using this feature you can then be presented with domains that you've
not even thought of trying, yet DomainsBot will present them if they are available to
you. So you can do that for prefixes or suffices.
I'll not actually include any in this search results.
You can search for Premium domains if you really want to. It's not something I'm interested
in doing, so we'll just uncheck that again. And you can order by different things. 'Relevance',
or, maybe you want a domain to be smaller or shorter, more memorable. So you would just
choose 'Number of Words' maybe, and that will just order it in the right order for you.
You can also exclude dashes if you wish, and also exclude numbers which I'll do.
So once you've updated all your selection criteria, you can start running through the
options that DomainsBot has presented to you. So for instance, 'FishingMadeEasy.com'
is available, but only to purchase through Sedo.
'FishingMadeEasy.net' is registered and not available, but 'FishingMadeEasy.org' is available
so you could use that. There's also the hyphenated version of 'Fishing-Made-Easy.com'
that is available. Similarly, so is the .org and .net, so, as you can see, it presents
you with a number of options and you can just really go through and choose the domains you
are interested in, and you head of to your own registrar and get these domains resisted
for yourself. So, the only one thing that I would point
out is if you are doing searches for both hyphenated and non-hyphenated synonyms, you
also have to watch out for hybrid domains that pop up, so for instance 'Fly-Fishing'
hyphenated synonym appears also with the non hyphenated 'MadeEasy', so, you just have to
be careful. Just watch out for the results and make sure you are registering the domain
you really want and maybe not a hybrid one. Okay, I hope you found that useful.
It's a great tool. I love using it. This is the first stop for me when I'm looking for
a new domain once I've done some keyword research. Okay, speak soon. Bye for now!
