The audience plays a vital role in the effective performance of your blog. As they judge on the basis of content and it’s design or how you have displayed your content. Taking an example of fashion then you will have audience age of about 15-30. As now you know your audience and their taste then you can easily get the effective traffic on your blog.

Usually, people always believe in comparison at some extent. But when it comes to competition, they want to come two steps ahead from their competitors as tug of wars. If the competitor’s blog name is more creative and contains meaningful verbs then you should inspire from them to use not the same word but relative words to your own niche. Well, it may possible that your competitor has a different niche then you. But looking for keywords relevant to your domain is a must while creating the blog. Rather than putting common words, find innovative but easy in pronunciation will be good and appropriate for one blog.

#5. Keyword-based name
