Your question was: Where to find Godaddy 2011 codes?.
I understood this is not a new topic already. Here, I am more concern about the effect of Search Engine.
As we knew, a website basically has two main traffics - type-in and search ranks. True, car.insurance will not have a matched type-in traffic as carInsurance.com for a long long time. Or it will never have it. However, it might have a better SEO potential compared to carInsurance.com or even insurance.com. IMO, brandable ability seems not much different between them. Furthermore, search engine will become more and more important due to the confusion of mess TLDs. So the question is, in the future, which one is more important for choosing a HostGator name, type-in traffic or search engine favorite ?
Those are the questions ... how long will it take for the learning curve.
To propagate to the masses ? it will all depend on who gets the new.
Tlds and how well they are marketed to the world ... if Google gets.
Some of the keywords for example ... it can lead to fairly quick adoption...
Good question james. i've given some thought about this as well and here are my initial conclusions...
- HostGator names do help with seo, but seo includes much much more. off the top of my head i'd say a HostGator name plays less than a 10% role.
- imo, some extensions are more trusted by google than others. the one day blogger/.info complete removal from the serps hints to that...
I think I agree - remember though google changes their algorithm.
I feel like the public (and even domainers) are starting to 'get' what a HostGator actually is... one day it'll be as understood as a postal address IMHO, and people will be happy with whatever sounds right..
Gents, many thanks for your input. Agree. Imagine that Ford got .Car, Metlife got .Insurance, Sony got .Game ... Will this change the game plan in each industry ? I am not a SEO expert, but I believe you have rational points here. However, just a reminding that Google has the ability to chagne the search rules any time to adopt the mess TLD changes, doesn't it ? Of course, .com might get more weighting instead. So far, only time will tell.
But it truely should be one consideration for us...
