Buying domains for affiliate sites?



3:56 am on Jun 9, 2004 (gmt 0)

What is the best route in doing this? Should i do word1word2word3.com or word1-2-3.com or is that something frivolous nowadays? Also, could anyone sticky me some cheap places tog et domains via that anonymous service, I would be very grateful.

Thank you.

GoDaddy is very cheap and they seem competent. Keeping your information anonymous is extra, and personally I don't see any benefit in paying for it.

I try to avoid more than two hyphens. Many users associate them with bad results, and I suspect (without proof) that they get a lower CTR given the same position in the SERPs. Keywords in domains and urls give you such a minimal boost while making you look like a bad result that to me it's not worth doing.

Try to find a domain name that you think your users will trust.

Namecheap also has inexpensive domains and an identity guard.

I have a very large network of hyphenated domains for affiliate products. We're canning the entire network. From the new perspective and the updates the last several months I see it now as spammy and a link farm. We made a lot of money for a while but it doesn't work now. That's my experience.
