At WUKmedia we are big believers in generic domain names and in this blog we are going to explain to you why you should consider getting yourself a generic domain name for your business and how they are often better than the domain name you currently have. At WUKmedia we are experts with domain names and can help you find the perfect domain name for your business.
What are generic domain names?
In simple terms a Generic domain name is a domain that states clearly what your business or service is offering. For example if you are a tree surgeon in Surrey, a fantastic generic domain name would be treesurgeonsurrey.co.uk. Rather than using your business name which can often not explain what your business does or where they are based, a generic domain does precisely that.
They are good for SEO
Generic domain names are also a great tool for SEO. The first thing that Google reads when your website is submitted to Search Console is the domain name. So if you are wanting to appear high on Google for “Tree Surgeons in Surrey”, then having a domain name which has those words in it is a great start.
They are also far more memorable than your business name and stand out when a user is searching Google than possibly your business name would.
