When I started the Phoenix Area Real Estate Blog I didn’t give much thought to the domain name. Instead, I wanted it to be free, and since I had the domain 101bell.com, adding blog at the front was indeed free.
But since the blog is doing so well, it’s time to revisit that decision. I’ve done some hunting around and found a name I like. It becomes available in October, so with any luck I’ll get it. I’m not going to share it now, on the off chance that the owner could somehow see it here, but the domain name does include Phoenix in it, which I think is important for SEO (Search Engine Optimization) reasons.
I’ve also got my eyes on another domain name for a Scottsdale focused blog. This blog would differ from my current blog, in that it would focus solely on Scottsdale news and real estate information, while the current blog is general to Phoenix, real estate, and even national content. The blogging description for this new Scottsdale blog would be “hyper-local”, and I’ll do my best to stay on topic and up-to-date with useful content.
