Do you host your website under a personal domain name?
If not, you should consider doing so instead of having it on a free subdomain. In this article, I am going to share with you the impact of a personal domain name on Google Indexing. There is probably no official text on this but personal experience and that of people I know show that websites on personal domains get indexed much faster.
How much faster?
It can be as fast as 30x. Instead of taking 1 month to index, it will only take a week or less. Mine took only 1 day to be indexed! Discounting the fact that I already had some awesome content before I submitted my sitemap to Google, it is still considered blazingly fast. I can’t be happier.
What’s the catch?
Getting Your Own Domain Name costs $
No doubt that the domain is not free but it is a small price to pay. Nothing is free anyway and we should focus on the value.
Imagine a website that is not indexed quickly, won’t the cost be more significant?
Not being indexed is like having an Apple store but no one knows it even exists.
That is so sad. Truly…
Yes it is sad. So don’t go that path, that’s what I’m saying.
Invest in a domain. It is definitely worth it, if you want to get your website indexed and ranked quickly. Ranking depends on your content but Google is not going to rank any website that is not indexed.
You got my drift?
Here’s the deal…
your well-indexed website can move up in rank faster and generate profits to cover your startup investment which isn’t a lot in the first place.
Why You Want to get your Domain Name from the Start
You may be wondering:
Should I really get my domain?
Well, let’s break it down.
- It will save you a bunch of time.
- You don’t have to worry about SEO rankings drop when you moved to new domain later. Google algorithm says it is just a temporary drop but do you really want it?
- When you move to new domain, you have to backtest your links to ensure they work.
- It’s your business. Why not brand it right from Day 1?
- Faster (Up to 75% and higher) indexing by Google and other Search Engines
There are many advantages.
But, want to know the best part?
Getting your domain name earlier ensures you get it before it becomes unavailable.
Domain names are available on a first come first serve basis. I am the owner of BYTETODC.com. No one will be able to own this domain name unless I re-sell it or if it expires.
