The Beginning of the "Page Not Found" gTLDs

Have you heard, there are companies that are trying to hoard domain endings like ".live", ".moto" or ".lol"?

All this seems good from a business prospective but what about from content prospective. Have we not already gone through the horrors of page are page resulting to a "Page Not Found" trap?

Many time's when I search for a technical document or information document, I end up with a link, looking at the "This domain is no longer active" and with junk content with bunch of search results related to the domain-name. Now the horror could be ten folds if these new extensions are misused for content website.

We hope the people that are paying large amounts to get such TLD's will not used it for revenue generation but to promote better content.

We are finally seems to be getting away from Klout score overuse as mentioned by recent PC Mag slideshow article and we don't want to fall into TLD craze.

Well now you have a solution to use those domains and put your domains to work for you.In this series I will be posting many solutions for you so that you can pick and choose the solution that works for you.The first and simplest solution is to have a landing page with basic text. Second, to put the landing page to work for you, you need to add a some links, and these could be called referral links or affiliates text links or banner links. As for as the rules and best practices of posting referral links or affiliates links, I will have to post an entire blog on the topic. For now, set up your domain to have a landing page, a page which is not the default from your domain registrar.
