You must have watched my recent video on YouTube about this website and why I created it. But the question is, why didn’t implement the features found on this website to my old website? Here are the reasons below.
Why I created a new website
- My old website is a money-generating website monetized with AdSense. I know the site looks ugly but it’s optimized for ad revenue only. If I was to add all the features to the website, It would have become slow and I am concerned about speed and would have lost some rankings because speed is now a ranking factor.
- About 4 years ago, my dream was to become an independent self-taught full-stack software developer, so I learned some coding and designing and became better at it. Unfortunately, getting clients was harder because I never had any previous work, physical location and many clients had trust issues. So I learned about how to make money on a website, So I monetized my website with AdSense and was able to make money and forgot that I am a web designer, 2 years later, became a YouTuber. So now I have decided to create my own digital agency providing web design, marketing, SEO, and web security services.
- The other reason is that I wanted to separate or treat my agency as a business and my old site as my personal site.
Why I chose rainz.me instead or rainz.com?
When I first started blogging, I made a lot of mistakes. I started with blogger.com for a year, never made any money, then I bought a domain name called keithrainz.com, it took a month to earn $1. Then I learned more and decided to be serious, So I went on and bought web hosting from vultr. Installed WordPress. So I realized that I made a lot of mistakes, then I was like, it’s better I start afresh. So I went on and bought a new domain name called keithrainz.me and continued blogging and made my first $100 in four months. As at now, I am able to get paid every month from Google.
Why Do I like .me domain extensions?
.com domain name extensions simply mean for business. .me are personal domains, in this case, all these are my personal websites and they are not registered businesses. .me extensions are short, easy to remember, and unique. Lastly, .me extension is a symbol to me. It means I am being me or being realistic.
