    Do the blogger tags you enter after a blogger post help you rank for certain keywords?
    I logged in to Webmaster account and noticed I ranked better with keywords in my tags than I did with my anchor text backlinks.

    Yes, I'm receiving traffic from Google for keywords from my tags. I'm only monetizing with adsense, and making ~$5/day.

    I only have about 200 visitors a day, and about 65% of the traffic is twitter traffic.

    But the last couple of days, I can see I've moved +100 positions for keywords from the tags from my blog post, moving into the 10th-15th positions, giving me ~80-100 visitors.

    My site is only 3 months old so we'll see what happens.

    I'm almost at 700. The only negative about twitter is I don't use any automated tweet system, so I only tweet once I update my site, and that tweet generally will only be seen by followers that are online.

    If you already have a blog at blogger.com you can purchase a custom domain from godaddy for $10/year. (theres an option right on blogger.com for that).

    I'm not too sure how you would redirect a site to blogspot, I've never tried that. :/

    I created my own html template.

    You can find free html templates online and use them for blogger or you could use blogger.com's templates they provide but my site required a lot of professionalism and the templates they provide don't really give me that opportunity.
