    Hello blackhatters, it is time to shatter all the myths about making money via blogging. I will share my blogging success as the days wear out. Am not going to spend money on hosting, am going to host the site in blogger for free and later will buy a domain name for the site.

    These are the plans in a nutshell.

    1. Start a blog in blogger with money,cash, dollar or any name related to money as keyword in the title.

    2. Start to write some quality articles as i have vast knowledge in SEO, Wordpress, Internet Marketing.(can shell out 1000 titles but will stick to one per day)

    that is the plan as of today.

    My Goal is to build a list of subscribers that i can use to bring me traffic and cash. My second goal is to reach 10,000 unique visitors by the end of the year and then monetize by adsense to make at-least 50$ a day.

    I will brand my site soon with a domain name. I prefer blogger for sole reason they are rated high among Google's algorithm.

    Just hop on the train and follow the awesome journey to success and do the simple things correctly everything will fall in place.

    Sounds great. This answers a question I had been pondering lately if you are correct. Which is basically does Google value a non self-hosted blog (like blogger or wordpress) as highly as a proper domain. I've been wanting to set up a 'side-blog' with the initial purpose of providing my other sites in my niche with a few links (as well as great content, not just lists of links). Anyway, I don't want to derail your thread! Best of luck... :)

    10k per month or per day ?
    With 10k per day you will make much more than 50$ for sure

    1000 visitors per day equates to 5$ per day

    10,000 visitors equates to 50$ per day.

    That is what i was trying to say.

    You can achieve it, i have an authority site in blogger (custom domain hosted in blogger) and it makes more than $500/m via adsense and about $60 per month with infolinks.Going to write a guide on that soon.

    Yes harry, thanks for your question i have a friend who works on the design side of Google, he gave the inside info that panda was all a show off and the blogger blogs seem to enjoy immunity to it as they seem to rank well, that is why i have started to blog with blogger.

    It is a property owned by Google so stick with the winner and you will win. I have hosted lot of wordpress blogs, believe me self hosted blogs takes a lot of juice out of you in following aspects:

    1. hosting
    2. design
    3. security
    4.shelling out money

    They literally suck you out of your writing passion. If you are alone better go with blogger, if you have team of 3 or 4 then self hosted is good option.

    Cheers!

    I'm with you mate :)

    Anyway, why do you take the risk to hos your content on a blogger blog that can be shut down at any time, instead of putting it on a self hosting place...

    why i use is for the following reason:

    1. Blogger has import function for your blog posts mate similar to wordpress.

    2. I have a authority or my friends work at google, so any mishap happens they can help to catch support.

    3. Most important is the security, it is 99.99% difficult to hack a blog in blogger compared to Wordpress.

    4. i can get my rankings back even the mishap happens after 2 years down the line, as my loss is Google's loss in traffic and revenue. When you become premium you will get king's welcome with big G.

    Update on Day 1:

    Created my blog and bought a custom domain from godaddy ( 10$), saved couple of hours as i did this in blogger, imagine in wordpress the DNS would take hell lot of time and set up is tooooo hectic.

    By the way i designed a neat site with blogger with custom header on it. (*do not know whether i can post my site url, anyways it is there in my profile)

    I think i will call it a day for now.

    I have added my first post to the site, i will stick to the goal of adding 1 post per day for first 100 days and start to build my list once the search engine starts kicking visitors.

    Good night

    Hello guys, have updated the site with a Facebook fan page now. Social media presence is important. Have also added my site to Google webmaster tools.

    The one distinct advantage i think i have over Wordpress sites is the speed, i will update the speed seconds in few days time from my web master tools in days to come.

    One More good news guys site is already indexed now. wow less than 24 hrs...:cool:

    Hello mate i have learnt little nukes and corners of blogging for past three years, i have spend literally days without food on blogs in the past, they some how did not make big, i realized mistakes i made in each one of them and created this blog with a clear strategy and plan in my mind.

    I will be constantly updating my blog on all the stumbles a newbie faces in my blog. This thread is there to stay mate.

    Cheers

    Good luck man, but since you joined with Blogger and are trying to
    be on Google's good side, don't plan doing any hardcare BH SEO.
    Best of luck!
