How to Select Domain
Every blogger’s wish is to present their Website or Blog in the Google first page. To get your website or blog in the Google first page, Google has to recognize your domain. Your website name should be like a Brand. You have to include your brand name in Domain. So your blog or website will be in Google first page. If you include your brand name in domain then you blog priority will be increased in Google Search Engine. By doing like this, You website or blog will get uniqueness.
When I was searching for some information about gadgets in Google. I observed so many times that, We get some information in Google result, which is not related to that Blog niche. Many of the bloggers will select One niche and write another blogs in that niche. Which is very bad. There are more than 30% of Website or Blogs in Google.
It is very better to maintain a website or a blog with one niche or topic. Don’t include other niche keywords in your Blog. If you maintain an News website. Then it will be completely different, because an news website can contain all type of topics. So news website will not come under specific topic or niche.
Don’t include symbols in Domain
Domain name should be unique. Don’t insert any symbols in domain. You shouldn’t include numbers. Don’t include hyphen (-) in between words of the domain name (all-techtweet). Don’t do like this.
If your blog name is All Tech Tweet then your address should be alltechtweet.com. That mean your domain name should be contain continuous words without any special symbols like Hyphen.
Name should not contain number. For example: 24NewsDaily.com, Tarun2022.com. Many people keeps their domains like this. Please try not to do like this. This will show effect on Ranking your blog in Google or other search engines like Bing, Yahoo etc.

.com is an top domain. This is the one of the extension which is preferred by many bloggers. It also helps us to rank in all over the world. If you started an Blog by targeting only Indian people then go for .in, If you targeting United States people then you need to go for .us.
.org is an Organization extension. .tech is an Technology extension. .edu is an Educational extension, .gov is an Government extension. There are many extension which specifies the niche. So, we can take extensions based on our niche.

If there is no .com , .in extensions. Then please don’t prefer extensions like .xyz, .online or any other extension, Without thinking anything just change the name of your blog.
