Yesterday I purchased a web hosting+domain package and they gave me an extra .info domain for free. I have no problem at all because it is free for the first year. I have about 4 domain names and two of them are active, while the other two is still waiting for the contents. All are in .com and now I have a .info domain.
I am still wondering whether .info domain is good for search engine or not. Cosaaranda said (in Indonesian) that .info domain is difficult to be indexed by search engine. I have no idea how to monetize a .info domain. Right now, my focus is still in my two active domains and no time to write contents for the .info domain.
Do you have any idea about .info domain. Is it good to be monetized or branded?
Please share your experience in using .info domain by commenting below. Any information will be help.
Yesterday I had a conversation with Jauhari about choosing domain name. The domain I pursued is already bought by other and will be expired in 2010 :( . Therefore I have to find other domain that is meet with my requirements.
SEOMoz has 12 rules to choose the right domain name for your brand new website, here is for the resume:
- Brainstorm 5 Top Keywords
- Make the Domain Unique
- Only Choose Dot-Com Available Domains
- Make it Easy to Type
- Make it Easy to Remember
- Keep the Name as Short as Possible
- Create and Fulfill Expectations
- Avoid Copyright Infringement
- Set Yourself Apart with a Brand
- Reject Hyphens and Numbers
- Don’t Follow the Latest Trends
- Use an Ajax Domain Selection Tool
In the other side Problogger writes about choosing brandable domain name or keyword rich domain name.
Because I do not have much money to pay advertising to promote my brand to get traffics, I decide to use keyword rich domain name to get visitors referred by search engine. The web is still under development. I will do a research after the domain and the website available on the net and share the result with you.
Meanwhile, would you please share your reason on choosing domain name? It will be a nice topic.

Hello everyone, it’s April and I will show you something different in my blogs. If you read my previous April, I released Free WordPress Themes MyApril, a 2 columns and 770px wide WordPress Theme. I use unique pink colors, nice icon interface and many more.
This April I created new Theme again but it still only for my personal usage. The new theme page is redesigned and rating features is added to let user know the most favorites themes ;). Back to MyApril, in the end 2007 I made a decision to release some updates of MyApril and the modified theme is named MyApril Reloaded. MyApril Reloaded has 3 columns and more wider layout along with unique colors.
As we all know, JAUHARI.net is using Padangan. Padangan get some respect from bloggers and many of them make customs of my Padangan. I really happy with it. I am not bored with my Padangan. The reason why I switch to April is that I need to refresh my style and make something new on this blogs. And you know that? April is my day, my birthday :D I hope all of you enjoy my new face and any feedback are always welcome.
The new my April will be released when the time is come. So just wait and keep visiting JAUHARI.net.

I made a lot of Free WordPress Themes that is available for free. Some of my WordPress Themes contain 2 columns, 3 columns, extra footer, widget ready, custom header from simple trough complicated. The question is, why I created all of those theme for Free? In the first time I created Free Themes. I just want to share my design and everyone can download and use it on their own blogs. Until today, I created almost 33+ Free Themes and also offering support trough my themes page comment or via contact form, just in case some of my themes users want more custom or just to make donation ;)
But something unbelievable happened, from Free Themes Design services, some creative users were re-coloring, re-designing and re making my original become something more personal. That’s what I really want. I love my themes users enjoy and make personal touch on each theme. Here are some of creative users that use my Free WordPress Themes and tweak it to make it better for their audience. Please note, this is not list all of customized, it’s just some blogs that’s I know. So, if you using my Free WordPress Themes, and make some custom as well as keep my copyright, please let’s me know and I will post it in another sections.
You must be wondering why there is less – instead of saying “no” :D – new post in Jauhari.Net, me and Jauhari were having huge workload. I have a job in redeveloping company’s website and Jauhari is still working with PHP Framework for his project. Jauhari may share his work later on.
Actually I am not redeveloping, but creating WordPress Theme for the website of the company. The theme WILL NOT be available for public due to the policy of the company. It finished yet. Also I have to setup a new cabling system for network and CCTV due to the new arrangement of factory layout.
Other job that made me far away from blogging is I am preparing for new look of my directory website to attract more visitor to submit their website.
That’s all my reason and I will share some of my work with you.
Next is Jauhari’s :D
