    Domain always does better. But, switching to a domain can literally drop your traffic for a while, until all of your old links are replaced by the newer ones, with the domain name.

    Well, doing this does some good. Make it run same for a month, until all links are fixed back, and then buy a hosting, run wordpress, import the contents and change the permalink structure so that, all the old urls would work :)

    Yes, if you can arrange hosting soon, go forward do it! Being on Blogger lifelong reduces the limit to which you can exploit your blogging!

    I dont think blogger URL can be 301d to your domain name, if you take it out of blogger and run a self hosted wordpress site! So you may loose your 100 backlinks once you change it to a self hosted site!


    So, what I recommend is this! (Well, its my suggestion, not really means this is the only way, or the best way out there!)

    1.Register a domain and add it to your blogger.
    2. So, within the time of a month, all your blogger link would point to yourdomain.com/examplepage.html.
    3. Now take the domain from blogger and setup wordpress on it, and export the contents to blogger.
    4. Adjust the permalink structure so that, the links wont be broken!

    And you are good to go from there!

    P.S : Make sure you delete your blogger blog after a while to avoid duplication!
