When It’s Time to Move Jobs

Published Thursday, April 28, 2011 2:33 PM

Gone are the days when employees spent their entire work life at one job, retiring with a gold pocket watch. In today's work world, it's not uncommon to change jobs, or even careers, repeatedly.

Hello, again, Francois I don't profess to be  THE  pxreet on this stuff, only someone who has hit my head against the wall and kept on going.I wouldn't worry as much about the cost to register a domain as I would about the bigger picture.By that I mean, saving a few bucks on a lukewarm domain will pale by comparison with a great domain (that you might actually have to outright buy.)Even if I had the option to pick up the same domain as a .COM vs. a .US, I would opt for the .COM, first (especially if my budget was limited.)If I could afford to do both, I would.The key thing to remember is Google loves relevance and a  meaningful  user experience so a simple redirection won't cut it.Take the time to make the domain name and title very keyword specific.Then, take the time to make the domain content rich (even a really good article about the keywords in question is a great start).You could then have a few links to other sites (all of which stink by comparison) with your link to your main  money site  as the first one (where we presume you have taken the time to  do it up right ).Not to belabor the point, but if your current main site isn't  dead on , do the bulk of the work on that one, first, because all of the extra work on other sites will only serve (if you are lucky) to bring traffic to your preferred site and if it stinks (or could be far better), you put the proverbial  cart before the horse .John G.    TheRefillMan
