Being found online…

Sure, we write because we love to, but it’s nice to know others are reading our work out there in the big e-universe.

The name for your site, blog, and most importantly, for your book, can be a critical tool for your visibility.

You can now find out what people are seeing in search results, when they are looking for you. Check out www.freekeywords.wordtracker.com to see what results come up when people search for sites like yours.

If you want to purchase a domain name that will be readily found, or even better – when you are choosing a book title – use this free service to see how well it would rank.

I’ve been told again and again that I did the right thing by having a domain name and book title match: “Release Your Writing” and releaseyourwriting.com works double-time. They drive traffic to my web site, to my blog at releaseyourwriting.blogspot.com, and to steadily growing book sales.

To use http://www.freekeywords.wordtracker.com, type in the search phrase you expect people would use when looking for your site. It then calculates the average number of expected searches on that term per day.
