Weekly News About Internet Domains

Part of new web domains is the now very real potential to devote to a niche topic a blog or a commercial venture with a cool domain ending and the potential for making the URLs on the site cover all needed keywords in the root of the site domain. For a client I am working on carmel.dog which is aimed at indexing over time for dog friendly Carmel hotels. Here the needed keyword combination simply requires a /friendlyhotels/index.html or /friendly-hotels.html. Google will focus on CONTENT which by being defined in the URL forces one to make a dedicated project and motivates one to be a real authority on this niche market search theme. This example is where new web domains reach towards geek heaven; a domain which is perfectly named for its purpose and forces one to work to make it worthy of its name.
