Luxury Chocolates Wales (luxurychocolates.wales)

Luxury Chocolates Wales

Luxury Chocolates Wales

“Luxury chocolate” by definition is a phrase most commonly used to describe the quality of chocolate and the chocolatier. … The keywords are intended to best describe the luxurious quality and flavor and indulgence moreover than the non-luxury chocolate counterpart, which in turn commands a higher retail price.

Marketing

To start the ball rolling we are writing content about a portfolio of domain names on our books appertaining to the keywords ‘Luxury Chocolate’ (Singular) and ‘Luxury Chocolates’ (Plural).

Ideally, the domain names would suit someone located in Wales or trading in Wales.

Domain Name Portfolio

www.luxurychocolatewales.co.uk (Singular)

www.luxurychocolate.wales (Singular)

www.luxurychocolateswales.co.uk (Plural)

www.luxurychocolates.wales (Plural)

Valuation

The valuation is just an estimate and the word ‘Luxury’ is valued at an average of $1828. Please view the screenshot below:

Dot Com VS Dot Wales

Obviously, the dot com is the most expensive but who would want traffic from around the world including the USA if they were located in Wales? no one unless they were planning to trade worldwide.

Dot Coms are not recommended for businesses only wanting to trade in the UK and planning on pay-per-click advertising. A daily budget would be swallowed up in no time even if GEO fencing was set, you will still get traffic from overseas.

Therefore I believe the .co.uk and .wales domain extensions also have value to the exact match searchable keywords.

Currency Conversion Rates

These Domains have been Reserved!

Although we do have them listed for £1,000 each, however, the whole bulk portfolio is listed for £2,500 per month or £70 per month based on a minimum of a 3-year term.

Pros & Cons of having Subdomains and Sub-directories.

Subdomain or Subdirectory? What They Are & How They Affect SEO

Over Christmas, something came to my attention about Sub-Directories and how companies use them. The URL in question is now a 404 page on an NHS site (meaning the page has been moved or deleted). but it was something that was on a poster at a bus stop which was shared on Linkedin by someone I am connected with that caught my attention: https://www.linkedin.com/posts/goro_the-longest-website-address-i-have-ever-seen-ugcPost-6879803181556125696-OQsr/

The URL in question was:

https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/conronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/coronavirus-vaccine

As you can see the URL is still linked and visible even though the page content is missing. The advertising agency and the website designers NHS use have a lot to answer regarding this…

So for the person that designed the poster and signed it off, this poster should bever have gone to print. Imagine how much money the NHS wasted and ended up with eggs on their faces as people are now talking about it. Whoever agreed to publish such a long hyperlink should have their wages docked, or it was a marketing agency they should be fired.

To think someone, somewhere, got paid to do this makes my mind boggle. Any reputable website designer would have suggested a QR Code or URL shortener to either scan the code, rather than have such a long tail of a domain. Another option would be to secure a domain name, similar if not the same www.germawareness.co.uk so that people can remember and spell it, and forward it to the page so that the audience could spell it and memorize it.

I have a subdomain that I use for my site. The parent site is www.ukwebsitedesigners.co.uk but I have a sub-domain https://ukdomainbrokers.ukwebsitedesigners.co.uk/ however I would never expect anyone to remember it, let alone spell it so I have pointed the domain www.ukdomainbrokers.com to the sub-domain and applied the shorter version for advertising and marketing purposes.

The image below is the NHS sub-directory was the category description page after the domain name.

On the other hand, a sub-domain is the website description title before the domain name as you can see by the diagrams below.

My question is who would ever remember a long tail hyphenated domain name?, the answer is no one and even I had trouble writing it down from the video.

Elderly people especially cannot remember things may have trouble memorizing or spelling a long tail domain name, so reading the poster was shocking, to say the least, in fact, anyone trying to memorize the domain name would have had trouble reciting it.

Whoever the advertising company is the NHS use, should be reprimanded as this is disgraceful.

This would never happen on my watch. To think the NHS is complaining they do not have enough money seems to not take into account the money they are wasting on website designers that do not consult them properly and allow for shoddiness to happen.

The link to the video can be found here.

Notice how I have shortened my text by only using one highlighted word. There are other ways to shorten hyperlinks using third-party software such as www.bitly.com to name a few.

Pros and Cons of Sub-domains and Subdirectories.

What is a subdirectory?

A subdirectory is the tail end of a domain name, it is a type of website hierarchy under a root domain that uses pages and folders to organize content on a website. A subdirectory is the same as a subfolder and the names can be used interchangeably. Typically a website is made up of different category sections and web pages.

In the early days of MS Dos and HTML coding, a web designer would create folders and put the web pages into those folders called subfolders or subdirectories. This is method is similar to how we store files on our computer, where we create folders and put images, documents, and spreadsheet files into folders.

When it comes to subdomains being built with WordPress and other PHP-based websites, those subdirectories are virtual. They don’t exist on the server as such but can be migrated using “FileZilla” where you can navigate to them with an FTP program and see the actual folders. Although virtual, they are still a part of the file structure of the website and are still called subdirectories.

A subdirectory is a part of the website that is associated with the domain name.

What Are Sub-Folders

In a computer file system, a subdirectory is a directory that is contained another directory, called a parent directory. A parent directory (root directory) may have multiple subdirectories. In operating systems with a GUI such as Microsoft Windows, a directory is called a folder, and a subdirectory is called a subfolder.

Subdirectory URL

In a URL, the subdirectory comes after the root directory of a website or domain name. For example, “UK Website Designers” root domain is www.ukwebsitedesigners.co.uk and a subdirectory URL might be something like this: https://ukwebsitedesigners.co.uk/contact-us. Or it may be a tad more complicated such as https://ukwebsitedesigners.co.uk/services/uk-video-creation. I have illustrated a sub-directory below:

Example Subfirectory Structure.

The problem with subdirectories and subdomains is they can be lengthy and very hard to remember.

What I do if I am advertising something and marketing domain names for example I may write a post, which would be on the subdomain but in the subdirectory, and then forward the domain name I am advertising to the post rather than point it to my subdomain.

My subdirectory will look ugly and long and even possibly hard to remember potentially confusing the user’s experience and even perhaps risking navigation to the next piece of relevant content if I did not shorten it with a domain name forwarded to the article. Therefore I always try to shorten the URL whenever possible. Url shorteners are another way to shorten a hyperlink, or you could go one step further with QR Codes.

Think of the Russian doll as the structure of a Subdirectory. Each folder can have another folder or category within one another which would mean you could have a subfolder within a subfolder within a subfolder until you end up with multiple, even hundreds, of layers of folders deep.

One should however consider the user of the domain before structuring kilometer-long hyperlinks. Just because it can be done does not mean it should be done and it could become a nightmare for search engine bots to crawl your site even going as far as making your website slow to load.

The only advantage to subfolders is that backlinks, domain authority, and page authority are closely linked to the root domain, which helps with ranking your website.

What is a subdomain?

At the end of the spectrum, a subdomain is a type of website hierarchy under a root directory and acts as an independent website. This type of subdomain, you can use another content management system, where you could build another website as I have done with www.ukwebsitedesigners.co.uk and use WordPress for my subdomain www.ukdomainbrokers.com

The beauty of subdomains you can save yourself a lot of money buying individual domain names and developing them. Having a subdomain of a root directory that has been optimized and ranked by search engines essentially is benefiting your subdomain and once you perform SEO on the pages it will show search engines that you are updating your site regularly. Sometimes a website owner has not got the budget to buy up one-word dot com domain names but if he/she used the one keyword as a subdomain, they have essentially hacked the keyword they needed to be associated with their default website. They then can build on the subdomain an entirely new website, yet closely link it to the root directory or as I call it the mothership.

The structure of the subdomain can also have pages and categories essentially adding more subfolders.

Here is an example my domain name www.ukdomainbrokers.com forwards to the subdomain:

https://ukdomainbrokers.ukwebsitedesigners.co.uk/#home

Which has pages and categories for example:

https://ukdomainbrokers.ukwebsitedesigners.co.uk/category/domain-names/

Which may contain a subfolder https://ukdomainbrokers.ukwebsitedesigners.co.uk/new-domains-listed-for-sale/

However, you will never find a subdomain with a subdomain.

A subdomain is generally considered a standalone site that is branched off from the main domain.

SEO and Subdomains

In terms of SEO, a subdomain can be an advantage to boost ranking especially if you have a blog associated with it and are updating content regularly. Unlike subdirectories, a subdomain’s domain authority won’t automatically be reflected from the primary domain name, therefore you have to independently have to perform SEO on all the individual pages you create and track them using Google Analytics or similar. Your parent site may already have tracking but your subdomain is essentially a separate entity and needs to be tracked separately even though it is associated with the root directory.

Why use subdomains?

Website hosting can be costly and if you create pages in your root directory the hosting provider will charge you for extra pages especially if you are using a web builder. However, the subdomain uses storage data your hosting provider has already allocated. For example, your one page on your root directory may have enough content to fill 100 pages but you are only using one page, if you try splitting this into 100 pages on your main site the hosting provider will charge you. However, with a subdomain, the content from one page can be split into multiple pages on a subdomain again you will not be using storage from your default parent website if you use WordPress. WordPress platform typically stores data virtually but you can back up your data via the root directory using “FileZilla Client”. You should every so often back up your files for security reasons, just in case your website gets hacked or taken down. Check the instructions with your hosting provider on how to do this,

Having subdomains not only helps to optimize your parent site it is ideal if your business has a lot of content that would be difficult to manage all on one website.

If for example, you have a directory as I have, you may also want to offer advertisers advertising space and their very own landing pages in which a subdomain would be an ideal addition to your default site.

When to Use Subdomains

  1. Directory
  2. Forum
  3. Landing Pages
  4. Geo Locations (have your site in different languages
  5. Blog
  6. Ecommerce Store
  7. Events
  8. Support

A subdomain can save a business a lot of money when building an SEO link wheel and having multiple Domain Names pointing to different services. There are a number of instances when a company should use a subdomain. Below are the most common.

1. Directory

 A directory is a website listing individuals and businesses alphabetically or thematically with details such as names, addresses, and phone numbers. The directory could have a subfolder to a link to a landing page where the advertiser could showcase their brand.

2. Forum

An internet message board where communities come together to participate in topics of discussion. Each topic would be a subfolder and each subscriber would have their own subfolder.

3. Landing Pages

A landing page is a web page that a person “lands” on after clicking through from an email, ad, or other digital location. A landing page has many uses from lead capture to buying your products. It can also serve as a micro-website for a business that wants to get more exposure that may use the page for advertising purposes. Here I have my own landing page that is associated with another website owned by “UK Website Designers” https://ukdomainbrokers.ukwebsitedesigners.co.uk/category/cymru-marketing/

4. GEO Targeting

If you have a website that serves multiple countries or regions, rather than implementing a translator widget on your site, which I do by default, one could duplicate part of the site into another language and add it as a subdomain. As an example, if you have a directory of different states or counties you may want to create subdomains for the different regions you serve. Here are two subdomain sites that Craiglist.org use: https://cardiff.craigslist.org/ or https://london.craigslist.org/

5. Blog

It is a well-known fact a blog will get you ranked faster than any other site so it makes sense to either have multiple sites in your SEO link wheel or subdomains of your parent site.

6. Ecommerce Store

Having an e-commerce store as a subdomain is of personal preference but I tend to build a store as a subdirectory rather than a subdomain. People are more likely to search your website rather than remember the hypertext string to put in their browser. They are more likely to type “ukwebsitedesigners.co.uk/shop” rather than “shop.ukwebsitedesigners.co.uk” both these strings are for example purposes only.

7. Events

If you are planning on hosting events in the future (Covid Regulations Permitting) you may find partitioning a section of your site into a subdomain. This can be useful when you want to distinguish a section of your default site. As an example, Microsoft does this with its events.microsoft.com.

8. Support

Having a support page on your site can be really useful especially if you are a growing business and have a lot of customers. A contact page may suffice but I highly recommend a chat widget so that you can interact with your online visitors. There are many Blue Chip companies that are faceless and all you can do is email them, which is no good especially if your matter is urgent. For instance, Google uses support.google.com instead of google.com/support. The main reason is probably because of the site structure and having a dedicated subdomain would make sense if they have multiple support categories.

Technically speaking a website can use both a subdomain and a subdirectory structure.

How do subdomains and subdirectories affect SEO?

The consequence of subdomains is debatable with some SEO experts believing that Google’s crawlers could confuse a subdomain for an entirely different website from the main domain. I tend to agree with this statement as I have not been able to track my website and my subdomain accurately without integrating two lots of tracking analytics. However, others say its crawlers can recognize subdomains as extensions of parent domains, I personally disagree with this because my subdomain subfolders have never been tracked through the parent site until I integrated a second code on my subdomain.

I have also noticed is that my subdomain outperforms my parent site, which tells me my main site does not have many changes whilst my subdomain has on a regular basis, which is why I generate more traffic.

Google Considers Subdomains as Separate Standalone Sites

(Citation) https://www.searchenginejournal.com/subdomains-vs-subfolders-seo/239795/#close

According to “Search Engine Journal” Google treats subdomains as a separate site, from your main parent site. This is particularly evident within Google Search Console formerly known as Google Webmaster, where subdomains have to be verified separately from the content that exists under the main domain website.

Some SEO professionals argue that subdomains don’t share the authority they receive from inbound links (or backlinks) with the parent site. The opposite can also be also true; subdomains are considered separate entities from your parent website, they may not share any of the link authority you’ve already built to your default parent website.

If you’re optimizing pages for the same keywords on your parent site and also on your subdomain, you could run into a problem by competing with yourself. However, if you use different keywords on your landing pages and header titles your website will be ranked differently. As an example, my keywords for my parent site are “UK Website Designers” whist I do mention those keywords in my Subdomain my header keywords are “UK Domain Brokers” and you will not find the two websites on the same search results.

Which is Better: Subdirectory or Subdomain?

Before contemplating a subdomain do take into consideration if you ever wish to migrate your site to another hosting provider, you will have to copy the root directory as well as your subdomain files as they are stored separately and this is a nightmare to do as I speak from experience, not only this if you wish to track analytics you need one for the parent website and the other for your subdomain.

Regardless of your reason to have a subdomain or subdirectory, you’ll want to stay abreast of SEO best practices in order to meet your ultimate website goals.

Create a Second Income 2022.

Create a Second Income Today!

There is no time like the present to secure a second income.

We do not know what is happening with these lockdowns and if businesses are able to survive.

Successful entrepreneurs do not hold all their eggs in one basket and know how to reinvent themselves. They know how to add more cogs to their link wheels of expanding products and services, but the rest of us might not.

If you have a job and work in hospitality and leisure, who knows what will happen with this second wave especially if businesses are forced to close.

If you have always had a dream or have a talent there is no better time to start to put your ideas in motion.

I know that 1 Billion Pound Sterling is being invested into businesses to support them through the ‘Omicron Pandemic Dec 2021 – Jan 2022’ but what about small businesses such as cafes, hair salons, retailers, etc, how are they supposed to cope?

The best way is to transition online and create a small website selling your merchandise or services. Start small and work your way up the ladder.

If you are a hair salon, sell wigs, shampoos, conditioners online.

If you are a cafe, partner with Deliveroo, Ubereat, or Justeat.

If you are a pub sell craft beer online and deliver meals from your menu.

There is absolutely no reason for anyone to be out of work or lose business you just need to know how to re-invent yourself.

If you have a hobby make it into a business.

I wrote previously on another site giving ideas on what you can do.

40 ways to get more business:

Lockdown Boredom 2021

Procrastination.

There will always be people that will put it off for the next day or the day after that. These types of people are tyre kickers that think they know everything and do not like taking steps into the unknown. They rather play it safe until they find themselves stuck between a rock and a hard place and by that time it is too late.

The reason why I like to help people is to get them out of a negative mindset and think positively. You have only failed if you have not tried.

Supporting Local Businesses.

I am offering, anyone, a head start for 2022.

Option 1. I will build a website, perform SEO, Marketing and Advertising for free for the first 3 months based on a 12-month contract. I will waiver the £99.99 upfront setup fee. I will advise you on how to choose the best domain name.

I will guide you for free and help you with your SEO & Marketing strategies.

Everyone should transition online and sell their products, services, dreams, and ideas.

Also a little tip for the people that think a Facebook page is the only platform they will need. You do not have the likes of Apple or Microsoft trading off a Facebook page so you should not either. Social Media pages should be an add-on to a website that has an exact match searchable keyword or phrase domain name and not be a default website.

It has taken me a lot of time and effort to get where I am today through learning and sometimes failing. But now that I am wiser I want to pass my knowledge on and help you.

Marketing, Advertising & Brokering Domain Names.

Marketing, Advertising & Brokering Domains.

Just like you would not go to a marketing/advertising agency to get them to spread brand awareness and generate leads on a commission-only basis, you would not expect a domain broker who is also a website designer, internet marketer, and SEO expert to work for you on commission only.

I used to just take 15% commission if a domain got sold but that would mean it was costing me time and money working essentially for free and financing advertising space and hosting out of my own pocket, with the view of attempting to sell domain names that had no equity or were mediocre.

I have since changed my strategy and will work on keyword domain names providing they have value to an audience that is looking to start up a company or is looking to get more leads or are rebranding.

We will only work on domain names on a ‘COMMISSION ONLY’ on the following conditions, if they are one word highly sort after dot coms, or have equity, are developed, are SEO optimized, are ranked, have a product or service associated with the domain name, and have monthly organic traffic. All other domain names that do not fit this criterion need to upgrade to the Marketing/Advertising package of £99.99 per month“.

Advertising for one costs money, it takes time to create content, design adverts, and campaigns. Not only that advertising space costs a small fortune, some of the websites we will advertise your domains on cost £30.00 per month so if you have 10 websites that is £300 in paid advertising. So why would you expect a domain broker to work on a commission-only basis and invest money out of his/her own pocket to finance a domain name that may or may not sell?

Marketing takes time and unless the broker has a little black book of investors waiting to buy domain names you will find that unless the domains are highly sort after one-word dot coms it is very difficult to sell something that may not have value.

However domain names only have value if they are one-word dot coms or if they have equity and what I mean by this is they are developed, are search engine optimized, are ranked, have a product or service associated with the domain, and are generating organic traffic.

I am a website designer and internet marketer and I can sell on average 3 domain names to my clients integrated into the cost of the website over a set contract term. Usually, the client has their own brand name that they want as a domain name but I also offer an exact match searchable keyword or phrase domain name that search engines are more inclined to rank rather than a brandable or acronym domain name, followed by a blog domain name matching the domain extension of the country they are located in. I do not recommend domain hacks or charm domains, they only look good on business cards.

It is all about SEO and how one can drive traffic to a website. If you are in the UK you are more likely to want a .co.uk domain name over a .com So even though you can set your GEO Targeting Location Settings a dot com is always going to have traffic from the USA which is no good if you are paying for PPC advertising and have a daily budget which could easily be swallowed up with unwanted traffic.

I should know as I have the dot com www.ukdomainbrokers.com that points to www.ukwebsitesitedesigners.co.uk I have many others that I own which I can tell you my audience is wider than the UK but I do not mind as I believe domain names that are not developed are like playing the lottery and you never know someone one day may come across a domain from outside of the UK so I keep my options open. I also believe unless it is a short one-word dot com the domain name is only worth however much equity it has and how much the end user will save in PPC advertising if they were to buy it.

Just because you the domainer believe your domain is worth seven figures you will have to show how you can to that conclusion.

One can put any asking price on a domain name but unless your domain name is highly sort after one-word dot com or you are an experienced SEO expert then I am afraid you will be waiting a long time for it to sell unless you find a domain investor that is willing to buy it with the view of flipping it sometime later”.

“Only SEO experts and Web Developers have authority and experience to tell you how much a Domain Name is truly worth and can give a true value of a Domain Name, anything other than that is purely guesswork.

Have you noticed everyone is a domain broker or domain consultant nowadays but it is curious to know if they actually can sell domain names if they are not professional Website Designers or SEO experts?

No one is ever going, to tell the truth, and everyone will hide behind the phrase “non-disclosure agreements”. The best people that can answer whether a domain name has any value are Website Designers, SEO experts, Internet Marketers, or PPC advertising Consultants that know how much it costs to drive traffic to a website, anything else is just hogwash.

People that have sold one-word highly sort after dot com domain names in the past may not have been SEO experts but just used their brains to buy up domain names knowing big companies would be falling over themselves to acquire. These people were ready when the dot com boom happened. Now everyone is trying to copy them but unless people have knowledge of SEO, domain names are hard to sell and become an addiction hoping they too will have a chance of winning the domain name lottery.

If you compare Flippa outbound marketing pricing module they charge $545 to list a domain name and put it on the front page and add it to a newsletter. (I wrote about this on my other dot com site): https://marketingagency.cymrumarketing.com/advertising-and-marketing-cardiff/

Having an advert on 10 websites as opposed to one and also having Video Creation to capture your audience’s attention is a small price to pay.

Furthermore, your domain/business will then be shared on a large network of over 10K connections on LinkedIn and will have valuable content written about the domain name to optimize it in search results. You will also get a Landing Page for your Business Details, Marketing, 1 x Video, and 10 x Advertisement Banner Ads on all our Partner Websites for £99.99 per month you will have your domain optimized to search engine standards, with meta descriptions and keywords to help get your domain and business noticed.

As my regular readers know I manage several marketing websites and blogs and have been busy developing and marketing, hence that is why I have been off-radar on here, however, if you want to follow me on my marketing channel you can always subscribe to www.cymrumarketing.co.uk:

Other than www.marketingcardiff.com all the other domain names are semi-developed and maybe for sale. I say maybe for sale is the $64M Dollar question because I am toying with the idea of making most of the sites into business directories and have income from the advertising space on the sites similar to what I have on this site. Anyone interested in partnering with me or buying the domains outright should contact me using the form below in the first instance with your thoughts and ideas.

See I am not simply selling undeveloped domain names, I am selling websites that with some dedication from a third party can become an oak tree from an acorn.

The problem, if I am entirely honest, is that I start so many projects but then find I do not have time to finish them properly in the set time frame, I give myself and before long another website comes along and find that some get slightly neglected.

As an example, I started www.roathlife.com and www.roathlife.co.uk and again they need some TLC. However a company in China is interested in the dot com counterpart domain extension, so will have to wait and see if they give me an offer that is worth accepting.

RENATA ENTREPRENEUR

I am excited to announce I have recently launched my own virtual business card.

Because I have a large link wheel of websites, blogs, and social media pages it is sometimes time-consuming to direct someone to all my sites especially if they want to learn more about me. I am buzzing as it has been just over a week since I launched this site and I am already on the first page of Google in the first position for the keywords ‘Renata Entrepreneur’. I have done zero SEO as I have other projects I need to focus on first. This is the power of a Domain Name and what it can do, the proof is in the pudding.

I have also found more and more Forex Trading companies approaching me lately in which I know they work on a commission but they will never seal a deal with me. I am simply not interested and I would tread caution if you happen to be approached by anyone telling you you will make money. Hence I point them to my Disclaimer Page: https://renataentrepreneur.com/disclaimer that way their persuasive marketing strategy soon gets silenced. I do not like being rude or hanging up and try to use my site as a tool to teach them that I am not interested especially if they do not take no for an answer.

You need to have deep pockets and a good understanding of trading stocks and shares. It is hard work and not as easy as they make out. They claim to have bots that use algorithms to predict trades on your behalf. You need to invest £250 as an initial investment to open an account and within no time at all, you will lose the money unless you are familiar with charts and candles.

I should know I have tried and tested Forex Trading about 10 years ago and lost a lot of money.

Personally speaking, I would advise anyone to simply avoid this practice unless you are an expert.

You are more likely to win the lottery or sell a domain name that making your millions with forex trading.

Think of it this way if they were making money they would not be phoning you up to join and the only way they make their money is if you invest your money.

If it sounds too easy to be true, it most probably is.

Going back to my personal brand, if you have a portfolio of domain names, start a blog and add your portfolio, do your SEO and get traffic.

The most important thing to remember is to build a large network of followers and contacts you can reach out to. Also whilst you are waiting for someone to purchase your domain name monetize your blog with affiliate links so if the reader reaches the end of your post they can be directed to an affiliate link of your choosing.

A visitor will have to click the link and buy something in order for you to get paid. Amazon Associates places a 1-day tracking cookie on the visitor’s computer. So if the visitor does not buy anything within one day your cookie will be invalid and you will not get paid.

Since writing this post I have acquired www.irenata,com that now points to www.renataentrepreneur.com
