    Hi,

    I have recently made a domain www.mysitename.blogspot.com and I am trying to rank it in google. The "mysitename" is the keyword(s) I am trying to rank for, and in my site I have done some basic SEO of including the keyword within the articles and such at a good density.

    My question, is it easy to rank these in google?

    I have domains (the ones that I actually buy) and usually I can get them indexed fast now. I make an account with identi.ca and it gets them indexed fast. But this time I made an account with identi.ca with the blogspot full URL and it is still not indexes in google/yahoo after 1 day+, when usually my domains get indexed in a few hours after making a profile link on identi.ca

    Is this happening because it is hard to rank with these free blogs for my keyword? They're not even indexed in G/Yahoo yet either when performing site: operator...

    Thank you

    Actually you got it all wrong. blogspot gets really fast indexed by google because its part of google. all you got to do is build quality backlinks.

    It's really hard to say because it depends on many factors like keyword competition, domain age, on-site/off-site SEO and the list goes on!

    I have one blogger site ranking #1 beating 286,000 pages. It took almost a year for me to reach that spot. I did blog commenting & directory submission alone. So forgot about blogger and move to Wordpress which is SEO friendly and highly customizable.

    Thanks for the replies.

    I know it usually is indexed fast, but it has been online for about 2 days now and no index at all.. which is why I posted this thread.

    Cyber, do you think I should go for the free worpdress blogs though? I have my own domains that I am running my own wordpress on, but in terms of free blog software, which is better? Wordpress? Might give them a go!

    I use blogger for testing all the time because it indexes quickly. I have several blogger blogs which rank in positions #1-#3 on page one, but it does take some backlinks to do this. If I were going after a very competitive keyword, I would use a WP blog on my own domain with the keyword in the domain name.

    Hope that this helps!

    Of course you can, you can rank anything that doesn't have a noindex on it.

    In fact, as others said, blogspot tends to index very quickly as opposed to hosting your own site.

    Good to hear :) because I just setup a blog on blogger just to test a few things with.
    I was using a .cz.cc so I would not have to type in a long name, not sure how that would effect rankings but its for testing purposes anyhow :)

    It will actually be easier to rank this as opposed to a brand new domain you just registered. The same applies for any other web 2.0 service such as Squidoo or Hubpages.

    The only problem is you could get it to first page, be making nice bank and then find it suddenly gets deleted for link spam or being overly promotional etc.

    I like to combine these web 2.0s with a domain as well.

    you can promote same as wordpress blog, ping, trackback, directory submission , social bookmarking etc which you do for your domain , as it is a part of blogger will give you more faster result compare to domain , as it is a sub domain.

    thanks
    N!
