Disadvantages of blogging on external domain
December 15, 2008
Well I had switched to an external domain for a day. A couple of things happened which made me to revert back to blogspot hosting. Firstly, my pages lost the google site ranking because my pages were moved to a new domain and had to start all over again. And my Bidvertiser ad clicks were counted as invalid on the new domain. Hence I moved back to the old domain. And my site ranking is also restored. Perhaps even after I create a new website I may not move this blog to a new domain.

    moving to a new host is like shifting your home to a new home. You need to update all your billing address to the new address.

    Therefore if you want to use a new host with new domain name you basically have to start all over again. So think carefully before you move.

    NIX thanks for your comments. That is precisely why I switched back to the old domain.

    This is the best advice ever I can give to you, drop blogspot, really, you are losing potential traffic and income with your blog, blogspot is AWFULL

    you should use wordpress and host your own blog, I can help you with this, you should join hostgator, yes my affiliate link is there but you can strip it off I dont mind,

    it's the best hosting provider that you'll ever find, and it automaticly installs wordpress to you, I can teach you how, after that just do a 301 move permanently redirect from your blogspot blog (I can do it for you) and that way you keep your page rank and backlinks,

    but you gain a much much better blogging platform and hosting,

    believe me, I changed from blogspot to wordpress, It's like night and day, uncomparable really!

    Thanks for your suggestion. I would rather stick with blogspot as of now. After all two months of blogging has brought me a PR of 2/10.
