Being a domain maniac = domainiac is a healthy web marketing obsession. I recommend securing all versions of your domain.
Example: www.webmarketingtherapy.com, www.webmarketingtherapy.info, www.webmarketingtherapy.net to prevent other companies from using a similar domain and confusion users.
Note: I DO NOT recommend redirecting all the .net’s, .info’s, .biz’s to your main domain (usually your .com), I just suggest OWNING them so nobody else can. For SEO, the best redirect is NO redirect 🙂
To further enable shop therapy ways, WMT’s Client Treatment Specialist introduced our clients to the new .co domain. I wanted to extend the “webdom” to you.
You can participate now in the “priority” pre-registration program if you are interested in protecting your domain or brand. We feel that the .co is the first truly global, recognizable domain to come along in years….it is just one “m” off of .coM and .co also sounds like CO, an abbreviation for “Company,” “Corporation” and “Commerce”,
.co is easy to recognize, simple to remember and flexible to use. It offers international recognition in a fresh landscape where you can still choose the name you want, not just settle for what’s available. Becoming a .co DOMAINIAC is also healthy because “.co” websites are a common destination for internet users mistyping website addresses ending in top-level domains such as “.com”, “co.uk”, “.ca”, and “co.au”.
Fun Fact: It is estimated that 15,000 internet users per day unintentionally visit http://www.google.co/
