  1. #1

    Question Domains with swear-words

    Hello,

    I want to ask what do you think when look at domain which contains swear-word ?
    Does it help or make Harm ?

    I myself have domain which includes the f-word. Web side does not contain any material related to sex, porn, etc.

    I hate to say it, but I immediately think of a teenager. Or teen things.

    No interest in visiting sites with swear words in the domain name. It' actually rather repulsive to me when people use them to express themselves on the Internet.

    I agree with Jordy,

    I think it's a bad idea and depending on your target audience you will loose potential visitors. I can't imagine search engines would like this either.

    PS: The haters on Youtube have to be the worst when it comes to bad language and it’s normally over something stupid, which is what really annoys me.

    thanks for replays,

    I want to clarify, that i'm not teenager, and site is not hate site.
    Site puprose to offer some marketing tools and strategies.
    At thirst i used f-word even in my tool description. But now i think is not so good idea.

    Reason for swear-word to attract attention. I planing some clever marketing campaign where f-word will work great(i hope so).

    I think about taking alias domain with no swear-word. But not sure yet. One reason in some places you can not write it (like here).

    The simple fact that you yourself could and did not write out this word in your first post above sheds some light upon the value of the swear word itself.
    ZERO

    Actually i tried to write it, but forum moderator removed it.
    Actually I dont think that swear-words are bad or something you should never use it. It just expression of emotions. Express your self at right place ant time and it will help you to persuade others and make your point. If you think it is not important to your, dont use it

    Whats Yours thoughts, using f-word for marketing ?

    You really do need to change it, there is too many negative effects with using it. Where ever you try and advertise they will remove it and properly block you from the forum or what ever it is.

    No one would advertise on your site because it would look bad for them and I don't think word of mouth would be too good if your domain has a swear word, no one would talk about a website containing swearing in a good way.

    Im not sure how Google would handle your rankings but I don’t think having the f-word in your domain will do you site any good.

    Maybe if you were using it for a social networking site or something it could work but marketing? think about the type of audience that will attract, I would say mainly adults and also teenagers over 16. Marketing is a serious topic and people won't take you serious if your domain has a swear word.

    I think to use swear words is just primitive as it shows that you apparently are not capable of finding a decent word to express yourself, that's all!

    It will never have a good effect and will not make a point in a better way you can't otherwise make using a decent word.

    Why making a point using a swear-word when I have so much better words at my disposal to make a point much more decent and much clearer?

    I understand that many people dont like swear-words.
    Some may think they are better becouse they dont need it. Some think they are better because they can say what they want. Both views are common and both are true or false. Because it's not the case. Its wrong way to think about it in that way (in my opinion).

    I want to bring some thoughts how to make advantage of it.

    For example, what link you would visit if u will know that in that site is article about your website? choose one.
    A) marksreviews.ccc.kk
    B) [f-word]-reviews.ccc.kk

    Personally I would go to the marksreviews link. To me it has a better sounding name and more then likely they will have quality information that I am looking for.
    The Effing Reviews to me sounds very unprofessional and from the name I would say they really don't know what they are talking about or be very credible.

    The internet even more then real world is driven by first impression.

    Now no matter where anyone stands on this matter it is the internet. Thing that are taboo in society are not so much online. Depending on what type of site this is going to be this could be a gold mine.(KEEP IN MIND NOT EVERYONE HAS THE SAME VIEWS) I was curious so I did a search on the eff word.

    Right there on the first page you have dictionary, wikipedia, myspace and youtube even on the second page there are only a couple of porn sites.
    Keeping personal taste out of this it could be catchy as people will tend to atleast remember the eff part of the url. That could make it very easy to be found again.

    In my opinion, it is very very very unprofessional to have cuss words anywhere in a site. If you want as many visitors to your site as possible, you need to keep everyone happy. When you throw cuss words into your site it is just like sifting part of your traffic out. Then those readers who left because of the cuss words think poorly of you and do not spread your website to friends. "For every one unhappy customer, there are ten unhappy customers following." If that is the consumers that you are appealing for that is fine, but realize that you are losing A LOT of consumers and if you are planning to make money off of traffic, you are losing money too.

    Perfectly fine in some cases, expecially if you're trying to be funny or creative.

    The "**** Happens" bumper sticker is one of the most commonly sold bumper stickers, and Calvin, from Calvin on Hobs peeing on stuff IS the most commonly sold car sticker.

    thank you guys for comments.

    Doing research about f-word in domain name. my conclusion dont use it or have 2 domains. Reason for that is f-word asociates with porn sites. And promote such site becomes more dificult.
    And Just dont want upset people who searching for porn and ends up in my page .

    When thinking about my second domain will think about other words which can atract atention and be not related to porn.
    Maybe you guys have some sugestions ?
    my curent page name is [f-word]ing-impressions.com
    I want to keep word "impressions" and add some word, for example impressions2u.com

    I do agree for some sites it could be good but marketing is too serious to do that. If someone's domain was (f-word)-marketing.com it almost sounds like its a hate site on marketing.
