Why Should I (You) Buy A Custom Domain For My (Your) Blog ?

Last week, we bought custom domain for our blogger blog “My Blogging Techniques” and now its www.mybloggingtechniques.com. All the bloggers starts blogging using the free subdomain provided by the bloggers but as time goes many people found that you have a blog and you are running that blog under the blogger subdomain. And when you are receiving huge traffic to your sub-domain blog and then you found that you don’t have any sponsors for your blog and the blogger ranks are also increases day by day. And still there are many confusion in blogger like what if they lost their Alexa rank, page rank in custom domain ? well the solution of that kind of questions is also given bellow.

Your blog posts will get more shares and bookmarks


When you have your own custom domain name instead of the blogger’s sub domain (www.yourstiename.blogspot.com) then people will think that you are serious about your blog and the articles of your blog is unique and it will make good impression on the visitors and they will be your royal and regular readers. And your reader will also share some of the good articles with their friends and they can also bookmark your blogger articles.

Fans and subscriptions will increases with the custom domain


Most people are not trusting the subdomains of the blogger’s blog because its free and anyone can make it so they can guess that you can’t publish good content on your blog because you are using the subdomain of the blogger and when you have custom domain for your blogger blog then your Facebook and twitter follower will increase.

It Costs Just $10 To Buy a domain name !!


You can buy the custom domain in just $10/year or say Rs.550/- per year. I think spending Rs.550 for a right thing wouldn't matter you. There are many domain name providers like Go daddy, Big Rock etc. there are many more on the internet. And we have bought our blogger domain name from the Big Rock, since it is more user friendly then other domain name providers. And also you will get many free Add-ons worth Rs.5000/-. We will strongly recommend you to go for Big Rock.

Will you lose your traffic and web ranks ?


This is the main problem and confusion of all the blogger that Will I loose my Blog Traffic and Web Ranks ?” . Solution is simple, you will not loose your traffic because you are redirecting your sub-domain name to your own custom domain. And you will loose your web rankings like Alexa… etc. but worry not, if you have a good traffic you can get back all the rankings back.

Some Publisher network don’t accept the subdomains


The best AdSense alternative Publisher network like Buysellads, do not accept the subdomains that means you are losing around 50% of the revenue from your blog.
