On our last post I showed you how easy it is to transfer all of your blogger content to a brand new wordpress blog. It showed how wordpress can host all of your content with a few quick clicks.
I also pointed you in the direction of a full tutorial that shows how to get a reliable wordpress blog hosting.
So what is your excuse for having a free blog?
If you’re a social media guerillero looking to dominate whatever battle you’re fighting, what’s stopping you from having a decent, professional blog hosted at your own domain?
I’d love to hear your answers.
What could possibly make you use a weird address like yourblog.blogspot.com instead of a simple yourblog.com?
The Image/Brand Effect
I may be offending some people with this comment – but do you know what comes to my mind everytime somebody tells me their blog address and it’s a blogger blog?
And the fact is – I’m right.
And even if I’m wrong, and they’re not newbies, they’re just too lazy to transfer their stuff to a new domain?
Somehow this doesnt compute in my brain.
The SEO aspect
I honestly cant say that having your own domain is better for seo – but I do know that one of the main reasons people just dont transfer their blogger over to a real wordpress domain is that they’re afraid of losing their rankings.
The thing is – the plugins that wordpress offers can make your life a heck of a lot easier when it comes to SEO.
Plus, there are channels you can use to get BLOGSPOT to place a redirect over to your new domain. That should clear most search engine issues.
So, please tell me – why would ever have a free hosted blog?
Talk to you soon!
