I have my own way of SEO. Nobody taught me and no"experts" were used. Yet, I have been very successful with our web sites. A good domain name, in my opinion, can help with internet success. Many will argue the name does not matter for SEO purposes, if that is so, why does Google highlight it when searching? That being said.
I started www.AtlantaRelocate.com about 5 years ago. The domain name had expired from another real estate agent. Presto, no Google sandbox effect (Google takes a while before it trusts your site) and instant recognition on the search engines. Now is great time to search these great names. I'm sorry that some folks had to give in, but, business is business.
So check out some names that you thought 3 years ago would never be available. I'm scooping up some great domain names that I thought were unattainable. Whats in a domain name? A LOT! Good Luck!
