You’ve probably heard about the power of having a lot of subdomains under one domain name. The theory behind this is that if you own a lot of niche subdomains, you can drive more traffic to your website. The more subdomains you have, the more opportunities you have to drive traffic to your site.

So how do you make the most out of this situation? More importantly, how do you choose the right subdomains to point to your site?

In this guide, I’ll tell you about 10 subdomains that can help you grow your website traffic using the ClickFunnels platform. I’ll also discuss some of the key performance indicators so you can track your progress and ensure you’re making the right decisions for your business.

Subdomains For Productivity And Focus

Whether you’re a business owner or operator, freelancer, or working for a company, your productivity at work matters. You’re responsible for getting the most out of your time so you can be effective and efficient at your job. The same principle applies when working from home, of course. Productivity is key to getting shit done!

While we all enjoy a bit of creativity and downtime, being productive means getting the most out of your time, not wasting it. If you’re looking to increase your productivity and stay focused, you need to choose subdomains carefully. For instance, if you’re a member of a mastermind group, you may want to check out sub.mastermind to find other members to collaborate with. Or if you’re in the middle of a tough negotiating process, you could benefit from looking at how subdomains can affect your Psyche to gain more power and focus.

The Subdomain Name Is Important

The first rule of thumb when picking a subdomain is to make sure it’s relevant to what you offer. If you’re looking for a holiday subdomain, don’t expect to rank well in search engines. The same principle applies for traffic generation. For instance, if you’re looking for a travel blog, no one will ever find your site searching for “blog posts about holidays’.

On the other hand, if you’re in the tech business and are looking for a subdomain that’s related to technology, you could achieve some great search engine rankings. Be careful not to choose a subdomain that’s too generic or broad, as you could end up with a lot of competition. When picking your subdomain, make sure it’s relevant to what you offer and has potential to generate traffic. If it passes the test, then great!

Choose A Subdomain That’s Short

To save you time and prevent any misspellings, it’s best to choose a subdomain that’s short. This is important because Google wants to provide its users with the best possible experience whenever they type in a search query. Longer subdomains make it harder for Google to properly grasp the intent of the searcher, causing a misspelling or bad experience for the user. These are the main reasons why the shorter the better. If you’re worried about your website’s appearance, you could consider using a short, easy-to-spell subdomain instead of a longer, fancier one.

Avoid.com And.net Domains

As we’ve established, productivity and focus are important. If you can, avoid choosing.com or.net domains for your subdomain. Google wants to provide its users with the best possible experience, and if it has.com or.net in the address bar, that means it can probably find what it’s looking for. However, if you own a.com or.net domain, you’re losing out on the opportunity to have Google index and rank your site better. Not to mention the fact that in today’s world, having a.com or.net at the end of your domain name makes it a bit harder to find on a simple Google search. This is important because when Google finds your website, it wants to provide the user with the best experience possible, which usually means competing providers.

Use Punctuation And Capital Letters

When picking a subdomain, it’s essential to remember the importance of punctuation and capital letters. This is because search engines use a combination of words and symbols to find meaning in a given piece of content, and these create signals to separate “fake news’ from legitimate ones. Punctuation and capital letters are essential in making a good impression on Google and other search engines.

For example, the news outlet Vice has a fantastic article explaining the difference between real news and “fake news’ that’s gaining a huge amount of traction on social media. In this case, the author is talking about a specific type of fake news that contains capital letters and punctuation:

  • The headlines for these stories often start with “BREAKING’
  • The articles inside often use grandiose language and boast an “in depth’ analysis
  • These articles seem to only be published by online newsrooms that specialize in “fake news’

If you want to see how much “fake news’ exists on the Internet, simply type in “breaking news’ into the Google search bar. You’ll see hundreds of results for online stores and publications that sell fake news kits. Since these “fake news’ pieces are easy to create and spread, it’s no wonder that so many people are embracing this trend. However, the truth is that without quality journalism, the entire world of “fake news’ would not exist.

Avoid Numbers

While we want to promote the importance of punctuation and capital letters, we also need to be realistic. This is because if your site gets a lot of traffic, having numbers in your subdomain name can actually do you favors. Big numbers, in particular.

For example, if you have a blog with a lot of content, it’s almost certainly safe to assume that one day your site will become known as the go-to source for information on your topic. When this happens, you can capitalize on your blog by adding.blog to the end of its domain name.

Be Careful With The Language You Choose

While we want to promote the importance of punctuation and capital letters, we also need to be realistic. This is because if your site gets a lot of traffic, having numbers in your subdomain name can actually do you favors. Big numbers, in particular.

When choosing the language for your site, make sure that it’s appropriate for your audience. If you have an academic website targeted at an audience in a different country, you may want to consider using a different language. Keep this in mind whenever you make changes to the content on your site. You can also use tools like Google Translate to help with basic translations if you’re worried about accidentally using the wrong language on your website.

Avoid Too Many Hyphens

A final piece of advice; don’t put too many hyphens in your subdomain name. Instead of looking for a particular word or phrase, the Google search engine has to decipher a lot of symbols before it provides you with results. Unless you have a very technical audience, using too many hyphens in a row doesn’t provide much value. Don’t put two or more hyphens, one right after the other, in your subdomain name. Remember the “hyphen hate’ that’s sweeping the Internet. When it comes to choosing your subdomains, simplicity is the key. Create a memorable domain name that provides the user with the best possible experience, and don’t forget about the power of quality content.
