Today I got a reader question that I thought might make an interesting discussion topic.
I am starting a new blog, and the hardest part so far has been naming it. The domain I like is only available in the .ca format. What is your opinion on using anything other than a .com or a .net? and do you think it will affect blog brand-ability?
I know there are different schools of thought on this question so it should make for an interesting discussion. I won’t sidetrack the discussion with my own opinion at this point but would like to open the floor for some reader comment. What do you think?
- Are .com and .net best?
- When is it OK to not go with them?
- What factors do you consider when picking a domain name?
- What’s more important – SEO or branding – for you?
update: With permission I can now say that this question came from Michael.
