    Hi all, last summer I started blog and noticed in a month that I was making some money with it (about 100-200€/month) and in the middle of last month, January it really got kicked. Page raised to #1 page in the google search with medium competition keyword. And with that kick blog started to make money a little over 50€/day. Now I'm wondering that if I buy a own domain and configure that in to the use in blogspot, will it affect my place in the google search results which I really don't want now as it's bringing home the bacon? Anyone have experiences what will happen? Google PR seems to be now 2. Should I proceed with own domain or leave it as it is now?

    I will advice you if you are doing anything whitehat, then move your blog as it affect your ranking.

    Early this year i move my blogspot to a dot com. And lose more than 70% of my traffic.
    I was making about €15 to €40 daily with the blogspot, but now am stuck at €3 daily.

    Though am building backlinks and all.

    The money is coming from affiliate marketing companies like euroads, tradetracker and tradedoubler. Since I live in rather small country I believe it's easier to gain good results in Google search and have to say that Google is that what brings people to the page. I have several pages but mainly only one is making money.

    How I got good results with Google search, actually I dunno? I ordered "Xtreme Angela Paul Backlinks Service | Boost your Website Rankings for Just 7$" from BHW in September and it really helped a lot from the beginning. After that I have built backlinks few every month to all kinds of sites all over the globe. Also in the beginning wrote couple articles and posted those in to the local article directories and that's it. The site have been pretty static and have only made some cosmetic changes to it. In the beginning I was focusing in not so competitive keyword. And I'm still #1 with that keyword, actually it's a two word phrase only with 1600 global searches. Have to say also that my conversion rate is huge, almost 50% from all visitors to that site :). But how long will these results keep? And I'm dropping the idea of moving to own domain, too afraid that blog will drop away from the search results.

    I would also advise against it

    Only if you can get an old domain, it might be worth it.. Now it does not seem worth the risk...

    But if you decide to expand, definitely buy a website and start with that.

    Cheers
