I’m literally amazed by some blogs names like ProBlogger, CopyBlogger, QuickSprout, WPBeginner, etc. and I think you’re too!
So, I highly recommend you to take some time to decide your blog name because it’s the name where you may work for next few years or decade or more. So, relax and choose the best blog name.
Your blog name must be…
- Short & Simple
- Easy to speak and spell
- Easy to remember
- easy to pronounce
- Pleasing to eyes
- no numbers and hyphen in URL
Yes ! it is.
Now, The question is how you can find and choose best blog name?
Here I’m going to describe it exactly!
STEP 1- Build Name List
Very first thing to decide a blog name is build name list which you like so you can choose one from them! Here I described good methods to find best blog names.
#1: Blog Topic
Note down your blog topics.
Means if your blog is about SEO then write down.
SEO, SEO TIPS, SEO BLOG, SEO TRICKS, etc. (whatever your mind suggest you. just write it)
just think and write it down!
#2: Try to understand blogs which you like (your competitors also)
Yes, you can learn from great blogs names too.
So, what you have to do is – just note down some blog names which you like as well as similar to your blog topic.
Now, try to understand how their name looks, how attractive, how unique, word phrase, etc., etc.
So, what you’ll get from this? Only one thing – “idea.”
Yes, now you can understand how blog names are made.
This blog name (Bloggingbook) is similar to some blogs like BloggingWizard, BloggingBasics101, BloggingCage, BloggersIdeas, etc.
#3: Learn from brand but don’t copy them
Brands are cool!
You can learn from them
For example – Facebook is the brand. So you should not copy their whole name. If you do that, then your blog will not rank well because of the popular brand name in your domain name.
This blog (Bloggingbook) is inspired by Facebook. Think – if I used to have Facebook in my blog names like bloggingfacebook or facebloggingbook then it would be not good for me. Right? So I choose “Bloggingbook”
At the end,
I just want to say that – Understand the creativity of big brand names and learn from that and apply it to yours.
#4: Your Own Name
This is the simplest but powerful way.
You can see nowadays many personal blogs like Neil Patel, Mathew Woodward, JohnChow are brand today.
So, yes you can make your personal brand using your own name in the domain. But make sure to understand your audience before choosing the personal name as a blog name.
Because, if I try to build songs website then SongsWorld is better than Ravijit Chavda (my name)
So, be smart while you’re choosing your blog name.
#5: Use Creativity of your mind
Your mind is the goldmine of creativity and so powerful tool to get awesome ideas.
Give one chance to your mind and note down the names. Be cool and try to build your blog names using your mind. Whatever your mind suggest, just note it down.
Probably you can get some good and creative names! So make a list of names which your mind suggest.
#6: Online Tools
This is the very smartest way to select a blog name.
Many online tools are available for the suggestion of blog name. You can use these online tools to come up with your perfect blog name.
Some useful online tools are,
STEP 2- Filter The Great Names
This is very important step!
Now, you’ve probably some good names list by using above methods. So, we just need to filter it and choose one of the best.
So, now choose best names which you like or think it would be good. (filter all which you like).
Now you’ve filtered good names from the list. So next step is to choose “ONLY ONE GREAT NAME.”
for that, Analyze all the filtered names try to use it with address bar of the browser and “CHOOSE BEST NAME FOR YOUR BLOG.”
