Are You Up-to-date in your Domain extensions?


When the public, that’s you and I, started using the Internet on a regular basis, generally touted as 1996, (just after Windows 95 came out) the domains extensions available for website was limited to:

      • .com for commercial
      • .net for Internet
      • . org for organization

It was said that a website could not be very professional if it did not end in .com. Well, that has turned out to be a bunch of hooey as now, “1 and 1, domain vendor and web host” is now promoting domain extension no one ever anticipated before.

From a generic sense there are over 700 domain extensions being considered. Some are released by the Registrar and some are simply waiting in line, either for the demand to increase or so that they can keep control of the system of releasing these extensions and consequent domains.

From an International overview the last count I noticed was 1,774 and I know there are more. It is a growing list.

1 and 1 is now accepting preregistration for these domains availabilities. If you are interested in being notified when a particular domain becomes available you may preregister with 1 and 1.

Now the argument for us to switch to using these new extensions to better achieve search engine recognition, (remember before the argument was to be considered a professional).

It is really exciting if you are considering starting a new website. For those of us which started out with the original extensions we are better off staying with them as the age of our website is quite important from a search engine point of view and if you amend your domain name you lose that distinction. Just a thought.

Just in passing, the revamping of for IT, Home Medic.Info for home health care and Portobello Place for Shopping have all been completed. I kept all the old pages to avoid link rot and with my limited knowledge I am still having issues getting the search engines to recognize the correct return for a search request. I don’t want to use “301’s”. Ya gotta love it.

Also, I finished the courses on Codecademy Classes for html and css classes. It is a good review and gets one up to speed for all the new changes going on in that technology. They also offer free classes for java, ruby and a whack of others. If you are thinking of finding out for yourself how these programs or languages work, you should really check them out.

I found the Internet after getting Windows '95. I have never been without it since. I am still amazed and in wonder of the access the Internet gives to all of us besides all the other benefits, like anyone can have an online business. You gotta' love it.

Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?
