Domain_Names This is a guest post by MK Akan

Picking a good domain name can make or break your online business because Domain names are very valuable assets online.

They are valuable in the seo, branding, recognition and other points of view. There are basically 2 types of domain names:

1. Brand able domain names

2. Keywords rich domain names

But this post is not about what these two of domain names are (there are many post about it)

This post is not about the how to choose a good domain name; it is about the different tools that can help you in a domain name.

And there are:

1. Dictionary

A Dictionary is a book about words. It is a simple but good tool to help you pick a brand able domain name. You can use a physical book or the electronic type.

2. Google Keyword Tool

This is a popular domain name picking tool. It involves the use of search keywords and phrases. If you pop a keyword into the tool, you will see all kinds of words and phrases people are searching. This helps in picking keyword rich domain names.

3. Quantcast

This site gives you many kinds of information about your readers. It reveals the demo graphic information of your intending readers. It could help you in picking good domain names.

4. Free Keywords

This is another keyword tool that reveals the number of times a keyword or phrase in searched for every day. It is a good tool for picking keyword rich domain names.

5. Quintura

This is a sweet service that helps you determine keywords and phrase bringing traffic to other people’s blog or website. It is a really cool tool to dig up keyword rich domain names.

6. Wordoid

I love this service. It helps you pick brand able domain names and then helps you check for their availability and can also take you to where you can buy a free one.

This is a Very awesome tool for picking brand able domain names.

7. GoDaddy

After checking and picking all the keyword rich and brand able domain names, the next thing to do is check for availability of these domain names.

Godaddy and other name registrars have domain name availability tool that can help you with that.

So that is it, 7 tools for picking a good domain name.
