Vanity URLs

If you are part of the whole social networking scene then Vanity URLs seems to be the in thing. The latest to do it after Twitter and Google is Facebook.

My vanity URLs are

Website : http://www.sudeep.me
Google : http://google.com/profiles/sudeepdsouza
Facebook : http://facebook.com/sudeep.dsouza
Twitter : http://twitter.com/sudeepdsouza
LinkedIn : http://www.linkedin.com/in/sudeepdsouza


Go get your own vanity URL before your name is not available. You might wonder why get a vanity URL? My reasons are listed below.
  • To be able to send people your profile very easily without having to deal with numbers and special characters in the URL.
  • To make your profile search engine friendly. Since your name appears in the URL and also in the content it has a higher probability of appearing higher in the search results.

I paid around 20 USD to buy this domain. I bought it about a year ago on domaing8.com. There are a lot of other websites offering .me registration at cheaper prices now.
