What should I name my blog/website?

What should I name my blog/website? Thats the question that bothers every new blogger/webmaster.

Your Blog/website name should be search engine friendly.

For example my blog name is indianreviewer.blogspot.com which i later changed to my custom domain name http://www.indianreviewer.in/

The name indianreviewer has India and review keywords in it. There are a lot of people searching the net for reviews and the Indian share is considerably high. So if some one is searching for a review on something my domain name increases the chance of my blog ranking high in search engines.

Your Blog/Website name should be authentic and professional and should cover a broader spectrum.

A lot of people say choose a name which matches your niche its good to some extent but you should also think of future and what you may write a year down the line.

I could have chosen my name as the blog name or something like Indian website reviews or something like that but Indian Reviewer looked more authentic and it also covered a broad range of things that can review on my site. So better have a big picture and go for a more generalised name. You may be writing some thing today and you write entirely different thing on your blog.
So give your self some room there.

Also Indianreviewer sounds more professional than reviewjunction which i did consider when naming my blog.

Something catchy and as short as possible:
well i named one of my websites as http://www.howwherewhat.in/ because its very catchy and generates a lot of intrest. If some one occasional stumbled on your website and liked the content you should make sure he remembers your website/blog name so that he can quickly come back at a later time. So a catchy name always. Also Branding your website/Blog Name on every page is a good idea. You can check out my website and you can see how i have made sure the website name pops up on every page. You dont have to create a popup but just at top of the blog towards a corner will do. Just make sure the blog/website name is much big in font compared to the normal blog content font so that it catches the occasional users eye.
