Domain Names Can Have an Impact on SEO

Do you know that a wrong domain choice can result in a Google penalty, even before your first website is up? This was highlighted by Matt Cutts, Google’s former head of WebSpam Team while he was still a Google employee. Domain selection is thus not as simple as merely choosing a memorable name to build your brand around.

The Syllabus

To give you a clear idea of what’s covered in this course, here’s the full syllabus:

SEO Related Domain Considerations
  • Deciding on the domain extension to use e.g. .COM vs .COM.sg or .SG?
  • When and if you should include keywords in your domain or simply buy a name base on your brand?
  • Decision on the domain registration length? e.g. Is registering a domain for 1 year or 10 years better for the purpose of SEO and Google rankings?
  • Knowing the possible alternatives if the domain you want is unavailable (ie already taken)
  • Expired domain - what are they and what you need to know?
Non SEO Related Considerations
  • How to identify good domain deals so that you won’t be scammed by unethical domain sellers
  • The 5 important factors to watch out for (provided by Google), when you buy a domain
  • How the domain transfer process works? i.e. how to transfer your domain to another host?
  • What happens if your domain seller goes bust?
  • How to ensure you are the rightful owner of the domain you bought?
  • The .COM price increase schedule and how it impacts you

Time and again, you will hear of unscrupulous web designers putting themselves as registrants for domain names they register on behalf of their clients. This sneaky act effectively passes domain ownership to the web designer instead of the client. Equally frequent are instances of people buying domain names they thought were cheap, only to discover the ridiculously high renewal fees later on.

Such misfortune can easily be avoided had these victims attended our class prior to buying their first domain.

Learning Objective

After this course, you will know the important considerations to factor in when buying a new domain, including how to avoid buying one that had been "churned and burned to the ground" by its previous owner. You will also know how to identify good domain deals and avoid being scammed by unethical domain name retailers and web designers alike.

Recommended Follow Up Courses

After attending this course, the next natural step will be to buy your first domain. Thereafter, you can either hire a web design company to build a website or learn to build one yourself. If you choose the latter, the following are courses you may wish to attend:

F.A.Q.

Here are answers to some commonly asked questions we receive...

Yes it is FREE and we intend to keep it FOC for as long as we can. Knowing how to select and register appropriate domain names and the impact your selection has on SEO is an important but alas, understated skill. We hope to change this by regularly conducting this course.

To most, the process of buying a domain appears relatively straightforward. It involves thinking of an appropriate name and domain extension, checking if it's available and if so, simply registering it. 

What's unknown to most is that behind that perceive simpleness, are important choices that can have far reaching consequences for those who get it wrong. Domains can impact SEO, both positively and negatively. For example, buying a .COM.SG when you intend to reach out to an international audience is unwise, but are you aware of this? 

There is thus a need for public education in this area. We are thus fulfilling this role; it's our way of giving back to society - by providing Singaporeans with an important area of education that is currently lacking.

Firstly, you won't be hit by Google with an unexpected domain related penalty for acquiring a spammy domain.

Secondly, you won't be easily scammed by unscrupulous domain name retailers and web designers alike. 

Thirdly, you will gain important knowledge on:

  • How to transfer your domain?
  • What to do if your domain seller goes bust?
  • Ensuring you are the rightful owner of any domain name you purchase.

Duration of Workshop - 6 Hours (1 to 7 pm)

The class is conducted over 6-hours in the afternoon, from 1 to 7 pm.
