Do you want to buy your own name

Do you want to buy your own name

once in a SEM forum to see the discussion on this issue, in the purchase of search keywords, whether to buy their own business name, the name of the site, or the name of the brand. Of course, these discussions are often aimed at the more famous companies, websites and brands. In fact, an argument is more specific, when these "owned" key companies naturally by Baidu and Google in the search results first, there is no need to buy the


I see the relevant discussions often give a negative answer, I remember in the IBM interactive marketing director Mr. Dong Jinwei in an interview, there have been similar answers.
