    Hey guys....I don't have a ton of cash to buy another domain for an upcoming project nor for hosting...

    I am looking for a good blogging platform I can use that's free...that has good google authority for ranking, and that I can make unlimited subdomains(for each new post I make).... with ie...www.mysite.blogplatform.com/subdomain

    I saw wordpress.com but they dont like advertising and my blog posts will reference my presell page for a ebook product I'm marketing...

    Any ideas...

    Why do you need to create a new subdomain website if you can just create a NEW ONE using blogspot?

    The fact that you sign up with them is basically creating a SUBDOMAIN already with them. That's why your site got a name "hithisismyfirstsite.blogspot.com".

    Because if I build a blog with 500 articles I wrote on it it will carry much more weight than making 500 individual blogs...

    I don't get it.

    So if you want a blog with 500 articles, why on earth would you create 500 blogs? No one asked you to do so. Just updates your blog with 500 articles, and DANG you'll get a blog filled with 500 articles.

    Why so complicated?

    I think your confusing yourself.

    what youll get is:

    [yourblogname].[whereverthefuckyourhosting].com

    All your posts will be

    [yourblogname].[whereverthefuckyourhosting].com/[whateveryourpostiscalled].htm

    If you got a new subdomain each time it would be

    [yourblogname1].[whereverthefuckyourhosting].com
    [anotherblogname].[whereverthefuckyourhosting].com
    [someotherblogname].[whereverthefuckyourhosting].com

    Subdomains do not count as being primary domain in regards to keyword targeting.

    [yourblogname].[whereverthefuckyourhosting].com

    is not the same as ww(w).[whereverthefuckyourhosting].com

    [yourblogname].[whereverthefuckyourhosting].com/[post1]
    [yourblogname].[whereverthefuckyourhosting].com/[post2]

    Those two are the same site

    Yeah,

    I think the OP should first let us know clearly here what's your definition of SUBDOMAIN.

    This is what I mean...where the article title goes in the last part and its also on a seperate page...

    If it's any help, netfirms dot com has $8/month hosting for unlimited websites and they give you 2 free domain names. If you just want to use them to register a domain, coupon code DOLLARDOMAIN will get you a 1 yr registration for $4.

    Yeah that's not called a sub domain =)

    A sub domain is what goes in front of your root domain, e.g.

    subdomain1.yourdomain.com
    subdomain2.yourdomain.com

    yourdomain.com/yourarticlepost.html is just a page under your domain.

    Businessminder is right.

    So OP, now go build blogspot and wordpress blogs and post 500 articles on them as you said you wanted to do.

    I am sure if you are that determined to really execute that plan, you'll see some success.

    But the problem is, lots of people JUST DONT DO what they are supposed to do. Instead, they come here and go to the download sections. Lol.

    My only concern is doing that and having blogger or wp delete my blog with all my work...maybe a dollar domain would be the best option...

    Yep thats a concern.

    Which is why personally I would invest in a premium host and use wordpress or joomla software plus a premium url.

    But if you want it free you gotta take the risk.

    That's a concern and risk worth taking, considering the fact that you are on a tight budget as you said at the beginning.

    If that's not the case, I'd never recommend you to build your main money site on a free platform.

    Heres a question...would having a keyword as the subdomain get more google love than the keyword coming after the .com (ie the pages url)?

    If you are focusing on SEO for that domain, then your focus should be only on creating subpages of that domain. Google sees a subdomain as an entirely separate domain, so in essence, you would be creating competition for yourself.

    If you're going to use Wordpress, you can set it to have each post be listed as a separate page, and work things out that way. But, don't use subdomains unless you absolutely have to do so. You'd be creating more trouble for yourself than it's worth.

    And if you're on a tight budget, just use the netfirms code to get the domain for a buck (as mentioned by a previous poster) and go through the web hosting section of the forum and look for a free hosting offer (1 month free or whatever). You should be able to get up and running in about half an hour if you've got your plan thought out. Please don't use a hosted blog though because you might lose your content. Having your own domain/hosting at least ensures that your content remains your own.

    As long as the keyword is in the domain, no matter where it is (before or after), it's already good for SEO.

    Stop asking question, and start taking action.

    From what I've seen, by looking at your posts and questions, you are worrying too much over things. Just start getting your hands on it. Of course it's good to ask people over things that you don't know. But remember that people learn faster and quicker from what they've done whether it's a success or a mistake.

    Execute your plan. Then if there's any question, come back here. I'm sure there are lot of people here that would be glad to help.
