What is a contextually strong domain?

Two things make a domain a contextually strong domain.

Firstly, a contextually strong domain is a domain whose name has a strong direct contextual relationship with its content.

Secondly, a contextually strong domain is a domain whose name is a strong contextual marker/example of the culture, speech, and/or language associated with its content. Names that fit this particular qualification could be considered ‘catchphrase’ domains in addition to being contextually strong domains.

What is so good about a contextually strong domain?

A website with the name roses dot com is great for a site than bears even the most remote association with roses (which is why generic domains are viable and desirable), but at the same time, it is just that – GENERIC. It is catch-all and yes, it is easy to remember, BUT it doesn’t offer anything to stand itself out.

Once domain names are taken, they’re gone and in this day and age, to find yourself a domain name that both fits what you want it to stand for (context) and will stand out in a sea of other domain names, you need to be creative (using context).

For this reason alone, contextually strong domains which are oftentimes descriptive and even catchphrase-like are extremely desirable and perhaps even more desirable than generic domains.

Furthermore, search engines love contextual words and phrases (just think about how you can search for the lyrics to a song just by typing in a one-liner from the song) which means a search for a contextual phrase that matches your domain’s name will make you one of the top – if not THE top – hit in the search results.

As an added bonus, web surfers love contextual words and phrases, too, and if someone types in a contextual phrase into their web browser web address bar, the browser will almost always direct the user FIRST to a site that bears the greatest similarities to what the web surfer typed.

Bar none, one of the easiest ways to help you get a top search engine ranking is to have a great name that matches the keywords used in searching and to match the keywords is all about understanding the context. Combine it with solid contextual content and you will have a team working with you to bring in the traffic.

Sure, [ insert generic name here ] is a rock solid domain name, but is it available for sale?

More than likely not.

What happens when you type in roses as a search term? Does the roses dot com domain (actual domain or cloaked or mirrored, it doesn’t matter) pop up first?

No it doesn’t. Bunches of other rose-related sites come up first in line. Why? Because the other sites have a more contextually strong combination of domain name and content.

Does having a name like roses dot com help with branding?

Roses are NOT a brand because they ARE ‘generic’ and catch-all. The noun name of ‘roses’ can help promote a brand if the brand has to do with roses, but the name itself cannot be the brand.

So you see, generic – while good – is not everything.

Contextual domains – while they often aren’t one word domains – are STRONG for that very reason.

Their context, descriptiveness, memorability, and place in the context of spoken and written word give them a little special something that sets them apart from the generics in a way that is recognized by both web surfers (who may become your potential clients or audience!) and search engines alike.
