POINT NUMBER 1: Product Justification

To sell a product that’s not listed in your company profile is not legal. But there’s no certain rule like this in the world of internet. We can find a lot of “fools” who are talking about politics and writing about Hollywood. Just imagine that the name of your blog is “POLITICSHANDBOOK.COM” and your first post name is ” Brad and Angelina Jolie have been divorced. Has this anything to do with politics? No, it doesn’t. So when you are about to start a blog, before thinking the name, think about in what category you wish to work on your blog. Then select a perfect name. That will do a great justification towards the products you have or will have on your blog.

POINT NUMBER 2: Viewers Satisfaction

But again, be sure to select category wise blog name, otherwise, how catchy your name is, people won’t consider you as a good blogger. They would take you as a common spammer. You don’t wanna end up being a spammer, do you? So select category wise name for your blog to maintain viewers satisfaction. You write about poetry and name it ALISONBURGERS.COM, that won’t work. You gotta be more efficient on naming by category.
