    Hi Blackhatworlders!
    First off let me start by saying this is my first post on these forums. I've read a bunch -- and learned so much. This website has changed my point of view on making money online.
    I have a few questions, as to making my own site for affiliate offers.
    First off, can I use wordpress with blogger to do this? I know it will be hard to rank my site, but I need a starting point.
    - I do not have an income to invest money yet.. but I planned on seeing how hard it was to build traffic.
    I already know my niche, and what I want to write about. I looked into a few domain sites and they cost about 3$ a month. That's not too bad, but I need to earn an initial income to start this.
    So, would blogger & wordpress suffice if I signed up for adsense or something?
    Thanks, and sorry if this is in the wrong section.

    WordPress is absolutely fine and won't really affect your ranking. I'd still recommend buying a domain though, if you're not willing to invest $3 a month how committed are you though? I'd advise raising some cpaital before getting into this business

    Hi! You're welcome.

    1st advice: don't buy monthly domain. Save a lot of money buying it directly for a year. Spend more paying monthly!
    2nd advice: use WordPress, is very simple and powerful with a lot of plugins that save your time. In blogger you have to view tutorials and a lot of resouces!
    3rd advice: you can rank your site very well. Although after a few weeks you do not see great results continues to make better your site, studying something of SEO and not give up.

    If you want other advices speak more about your activity. We can help you :)

    if you want to start properly, best you ask a couple of bucks to friends or maybe family and get a proper domain name and host. The domain name itself will already give you a good ranking boost if you use the keywords for your niche in it.

    OP, it is fine to start with blogger and wordpress but get yourself a domain.
    You can pick them up cheap now, so there is no excuse not to.
    If you really can't afford a domain name then I would suggest concentrating on your offline work (get a job, do some overtime) to raise the capital.

    If you can't raise or spare anything, then this isn't for you.

    Thanks for all the info guys! Very helpful! I made a blogger, and wrote my first article. It got 104 views as of today. I'm going to write more, and hopefully scale up my audience.
