This 30 Days to Launch a Travel Website tutorial isn’t about building a website, but there are pieces of a website that are hugely important, such as how to choose a blog name. If you haven’t launched your website, with your niche in mind and the competitor research you did on day 3, it’s time to think about your website name (the URL). Head back to your day 3 worksheet when you found websites that also focus on your niche and review their blog names.
- Do they use their actual name like Rick Steeves?
- Do they use a more branded descriptive name like my website, 52Perfectdays?
- Do they use a combination of their name and a travel word Wanderlustmegan or AnnaEverywhere?
What do you want to convey with the name of your website? Try to think outside the box. There are a lot of travel blogs with the word nomad, wander, voyage, journey and such. Be unique!
This is an opportunity to ‘describe’ your travel site in a few words. It’s a chance to clarify to your audience (and Google) exactly what your website is about including your focus (niche).

Tag lines can also appear within a description for a blog in Google search (that can be pulled from your metadata or schema code from the site) such as the below exampless:
Below are 10 additional examples of tag lines.
