    I just made a new blog where I give html and webdev tutorials and I only have .blogspot atm I can't afford a .com I got adsense on it and I was wanting to go full white hat with it, I was wondering if I should do SEO and build backlinks for my blog. or is that useless?

    Beware when building mass links to blogspot, one of my PR4 blogs got removed eventually for "spam"

    You should really buy your own domain instead of relying on blogspot the major problem is that you will not be the owner of the domain and you can be separated from it any time.

    I have seen blogposts ranking #1 for peoples names. I would say they are valuable web 2.0 properties for SEO. I had to do rep management on a guys name where a blogspot was #1. was a real bitch to knock out of #1 spot but its now #3. Work in progress.

    blogspots and wordpress are great for building a mini blognetwork from as long as you keep updating it with quality content and minor link building.
    I have blogspots blogs which have a pr from 1-4 which can provide great link juice for any related site you wish to promote.

    i use blogspot to test out backlinking strategies, so I would recommend that you build another one, test what you will be doing to your original site on that one, and then go ahead with your linking strategy.

    It depends. if you want to make it authority and then you can buy also a domain name for it then its worth it.

    but google is crazy and i dont know why you shouldnt use wordpress instead if you are looking to create an authority site.

    for any other reason well... most of the times no.

    I would by a .co.uk and some cheap hosting. You could get that for under £20.

    Blogspots can be banned. And they end up on servers full of gunk. I would say it takes longer to get sites crawled on free blogs.

    Blogspot is ok for satellite pages. Even for some other uses it should be ok provided you don't send too many links too soon.
