Cool Name Ideas is a side project I launched a while back.
It’s designed to help start-ups find their ideal domain name.
The great thing about side projects is they help refine my SEO skills and provide additional income
And I can lift the lid and show you what’s going on.
So here’s a sneak peek behind the scenes of Cool Name Ideas (screenshots from Moz Dashboard).
Cool Name Ideas reached 125k Total Visits PCM in May 2016.
Check out the “Total Visits” graph.
I’m achieving the numbers by ranking for some great keywords…
Here’s the “Top National Keywords” report.
NB: Rank tracking is important! It helps keep you informed and (if the worst happens) you can check if a ranking drop is due to an Algorithm update.
You can even check ranking in local search results, including maps and images.
Another added benefit of rank tracking is satisfaction.
Here’s the “Search Visibility” report.
It tracks target keywords giving you an estimated percentage of clicks.
Great to see no adverse algorithm issues (note the horizontal lines and the “G”).
I achieved this by trying to conform to Google guidelines as much as possible.
It’s also nice to see progress in relation to the competition (names blurred to spare blushes).
If you know anything about SEO you know links from other sites matter.
You should avoid getting easy links from crappy sites at all costs.
But links from great sites can work well.
The GoDaddy Garage blog recently referenced Cool Name Ideas within the “Naming tips for your bouncing new blog” article by Ashley Grant.
I worked hard to get amazing links (from sites like Moz.com) using ethical methods like broken link building...
