Also under the "Pro Types" can I humbly suggest either Attorney, Lawyer or Legal Professional?

You never want to use your name. Use the key word or phrase you want to be found for.

Thanks for providing this new tool! I took Karen GoPackerUp. (since I'm in "Packer" Country and I tell people
Let me handle the details and "Go Pack'r Up!".
By Terri Hayley,  Fri Feb 20 2009, 07:48
I was going to go with Dallas Real Estate Diva as all my other vanity plates are like that, but I read what Jeff said about people using a key word you want to be found for and that makes sense. I went with Dallas Homes. It was waaaayy easy! Thanks!
By Rudy Bachraty,  Fri Feb 20 2009, 08:02
Good choices everyone!

I really like Jeff's suggestion for selecting a keyword for your Trulia Vanity URL......I'll add it to the list above. But I still think that using your first name or full name is a good option too :)

I had to change mine cause J R pointed out to me that she said armchair quarterback and not armchair general.
http://www.trulia.com/profile/armchairquarterback/

J R and her requirements for being quoted accurately can be very bothersome...........Don't tell anyone I said that.

Still seems to long for a customer to remember.
By Jeff Link,  Sat Jan 23 2010, 14:16
@Rudy People don't search for names they search for specific areas. Asheville Homes gets searched over 1000 times a day. Asheville real estate is searched 683. Sadly Jeff Link gets no searches so how will being vain help generate me leads? It wont so I don't use my name at all in marketing any more. Another added benefit to using generic niche names is, when I decide to leave real estate I can sell my generic account's.(Think YouTube, Twitter, Facebook) I would not be able to sell my Jeff Link branded accounts. (Again YouTube, Facebook, Twitter)

@John Giordano Long for a customer maybe, but not to long for Google.

@Terri Hayley You could still use Dallas real estate diva. Since you would still have Dallas real estate in the URL. However Dallas real estate gets 3,396 searches a day. However Dallas homes gets a whooping 5081 searches a day. I really like those odds. As for my URL, I just changed it to http://www.trulia.com/profile/ashevillerealestateashevillehomes/
