Now..if i want to build a blog for making money,use blogspot or new domain...??
I just say....go for new domain and install wordpress...you will learn a lot.
And if you don't like it at a later stage...you can simply flip it.
both work just fine, although in my experience it's better to buy an aged domain or use blogspot. This is mainly because of indexing issues, and of course the infamous SANDBOX issue (pm me if you need a bit more elaboration on these sneaky little problems). You can buy cheap expired domains for under 50$ in some cases. Just my 2 loonies!
If you are new to the blogging world, try on blogspot first, use a unique nick which you can convert to a .com anytime.
Get a hand on blogging and if you got intention to make money, you can use blogspot to get a feel.
As you are more comfortable, that's where wordpress and a .com domain name will come in professionally.
thanks guys...you are all kind men..
what's your niche about?..and do you build backlinks?
i always thought blogspot has its superiority..
I suggest you to buy 1-2 years old domain and install wordpress. WP has really good plugins and he rank very well in google.
>> use a unique nick which you can convert to a .com anytime.
what do you mean here ?
if i host my own blog , and later i change hosting company,
is it easy to transfer the contents of my blog to another webhost ?
A brief explanation on what to do is appreciated.
with the godaddy coupon that lets you get a new domain for 0.99c i would just register one. in the end its 1.19 but thats a good deal
the thread for the code is here:
Please go with a new domain. Blogspot is not for professional business.
Its better to use individual domain rather than using blogspot's long subdomain, separate domain will bring professional look to the site and bring more good result than blogspot's.
When making a blog at blogspot you'll get a URL like: NICKNAME.blogspot.com
It's recommended to have a unique nickname so you can register www.NICKNAME.com when your blog becomes popular and brings in some decent money.
It also depends what kind of monetizing you'll be doing.....for ad*sen*se i think blogs*pot is great, for some affiliate products it's great to.............look man regardless of what kind of site you use, g0*daddy, blog*spot, ect......it's all about climbing the SERPS and I promise you there is no difference between buying a domain and using free blogs*pot blogs.....google won't give authority to some one with a paid site over blogger.....it's all about your on sute and more importantly offsite SEO my friend...............................Blogs don't always convert well with some niches though.....
