Time for a cool share This is The Big Dog Income System Share #1 and that means there's a ton other cool shares to come. Y'all know how to 301 redirect a self-hosted wordpress blog but what you don't know is how to 301 redirect a wordpress.com blog. Pretty cool stuff, right? I'm sure some of you are already seeing dollar sings all over. Here's the thing, wordpress.com is one of the authority properties that rank really fast and easy. Throw some backlinks at a wordpress.com blog and you'll see it ranking for many keywords (this depends on your strategy). Build yourself a nice wordpress.com blog with 3-4 articles, 10+ images, 1-2 youtube videos. Make sure you've got all the relevancy in place. Have decent on-page done like optimized title, relevant articles (article is fine to have the keywords about 3-4 times per 400 words) and some heading tags and a little bit of keyword in image alt tag. After that, do your SEO backlink technique to get the blog ranked. If you don't know how to rank (I feel bad for you son) do some old school link building like 10-20 unique content web 2.0 blogs, 20-30 social bookmarks and maybe a few web 2.0 profiles. Make sure you get these backlinks indexed and wait a few days. Now if you weren't crazy to go for 'payday loans' with this kind of setup then you should be ranked already. Here's where the cool stuff comes in... Wordpress.com will let you redirect the blog for $10/year, you'll have to send them your ID and go through their phone call verification. No jk, it's only $10. The process is super simple: Go to /wp-admin and login to your blog Click Store and as you click Store the store should open (logical stuff) with all the useless things they want to sell you. What's not useless and interests us is the Site Redirect which I think you can see somewhere in the right side. It's $13 instead of $10 but anyway buy that, make sure you're careful to do that setup right and you're done. Ping that blog if you're in a hurry, and you'll see your site replace the wordpress.com blog within 24-48 hours. Don't stress if the blog doesn't rank before redirecting cause even if it doesn't, your actual site (the one you want to point the 301 redirect to) will combine it's authority with the wordpress.com authority and is going to show higher than were it was. But anyway your goal is to use the wordpress.com's authority to rank easy and fast and then proceed with the 301 redirect so your site gets the highest ranking possible. Extra-hot-tip: search for other web 2.0 blogs that allow 301 redirects.
