Domain Screw Up!
Should I back up?...

Just finnished putting together a new web site and about ready to put it on line.

The domain name that I registered with GD didnt show any competition.

Example: BestWidgetSeries.com. But the other day I came across a blog site
named BestWidgetSeriesBlog.com. Are we going to get all tangled up here or not?
The blog is pretty bland and doesnt look like much of a threat or competition.
On the other hand I dont want to get too far down the road and run into any problems.

Should I stop now and select another dom. name? I hate to do it because its a perfect name for the site and it would be a cetain amount of work to unwind the whole thing. Any thoughts? Thanks!...KF

There can be a 100 or more "points of difference" or distinction between 2 websites. In the long run I'd worry more about the quality and quantity of those 100+ points of distinction than the fact that your website is named "John A Smith" and his website is named "John M Smith".

No one ever had any real or lasting difficulty distinguishing John A Smith, the brain surgeon, from John M Smith, the brain surgeon's cat. :P
