    10 Reasons Why Websites Fail - And How To Avoid The Normal Pitfalls - Search engines will...

    (Page 3 of 8 )

    Search engines will analyze your site to see if it offers answers to particular searches that are made through their services. If it does, then for that set of keywords, you may be ranked (and ultimately get more traffic.) If it doesn’t, like the great majority of sites on the web, then you will never be found.

    2. There is a general lack of planning before signing up for a domain. There are so many people that sign up for a domain by selecting domain names like, “” or “”.

    There are almost no bigger mistakes to make than to sign up for the wrong domain. Why? People on the web are not searching for things like “Bob Smith”; they are searching for “Charleston homes for sale.” And in the above example of Haylor Church, the domain screams, “the .org was taken, so I took the .tv that was available.” Both of these examples are big mistakes. Your domain name should answer a question that is being asked and describe your offering. It should describe action, not identity.

    Sure, Yahoo and Google don’t have a name that answers a question, but you are not Yahoo or Google. You are just someone who has a site and you would like to make some money off of it or draw new church attendees or meet new people. Whatever the case, you should choose a domain name that is descriptive of your offering and the overall theme of the site.

    3. Most website owners don't update or proofread their sites. I know that it is hard to believe, but there are lots of people who spend thousands of dollars on a website only to let it sit there and do nothing for them.
