    Hello,

    I have an adult site with <name>.tumblr.com and <name>.com.
    <name>.com is 2 months older than <name>.tumblr.com and it's already much higher on google than <name>.com is.

    I posted today about my intention to buy a domain & hosting for my blog, and I decided, with help of BHW user(s) (thank you guys) to buy a <blogname>.com

    I read that wordpress can redirect users from your <blogname>.wordpress.com to your <blogname>.com, but I don't know how god that is for SEO?

    This isn't an adult blog. It would be my personal blog, but I would still like to earn smt with it :)

    What's your opinion?

    Cheers

    Ofcourse it much better to get yourself a domain name without a blogname which will cause you loss confidence among the reader to make any transaction with you. Furthermore it can help you in SEO with a keyword domain name. Domain Name is important as offline brand name which it also do have reputation .

    Most importantly you never know when wordpress will take down your site.

    ...and start thinking like a business owner, not an employee.

    if you own a .com site you can build it up as an asset and sell it. First step in any business is know your exit strategy. :)
