    Hi,

    When making money with new sites, i often have a problem with creating names.

    I'm not talking about keyword names, but something cool and short like tumblr, digg, flickr etc.

    >>> this is my hint for you today >>> I like short names so that they dont cover much space on twitter, and i don't like to use services like bit.ly, cause when people repost my links i get link love :] <<<

    anyone have ideas for a website on photography? thanks

    I will give repo for any kind effort.

    bear in mind that names like flikr, tumblr, etc are absolutely meaningless if it weren't for some huge company seeding it with millions of dollars. For the rest of us folks, domain names that are the most valuable are the ones that pertain to the content within. For instance, the best domain you could have if you sold couches would be couch.com (or couches.com). A name like chblr.com would mean nothing.

    Go to name d0t com and search there recently expired domains (enter your related keyword and put time limit to 100 hours). There are quite a lot of good domain names expiring all the time.

    Try nameboy.com.

    Also many of the registrars have name generators as well
