    Which one ranks the best in Google, blogspot . com blog, thumblr blog or a personal domain? Does G love blogspot to give it a better ranking? I see a lot of tumblr post also in the results.

    With blogspot or tumblr you can use the "trust," age etc. of those established domains to rank your new subdomain quickly and it will initially be a little more resilient to link spam. With tumblr especially you will get links from other parts of the tumblr domain for some added juice. However you also run the risk of either service banning your site at any moment and then all your efforts are for nothing.

    A new domain will take longer to rank for high competition phrases and you will initially have to go softly-softly as far as your link building efforts go. In the short term it is harder to rank but in the longer term your own domain has the greatest traffic potential.

    The correct answer is to use all three, since two of the options are completely free. You always want to be spewing as much your stuff onto the internet as possible.

    Thanks for the answer. I made a blogspot blog for testing. What is the best way for getting other blogspot users to visit your blog? Is it through commenting?
