Friends, there is always a question in the mind of a new blogger that where to start blogging.
He should create his blog on WordPress or make his first blog on Blogger. Friends, let me clear this doubt of yours.
If you have some budget then you can start your blogging with WordPress. But if you do not have money then you should start your blogging from blogger itself.
When you have money, then you move to WordPress.
Now your doubt has been cleared, now the next question will come in your mind whether to start blogging on blogger from free domain or from custom domain.
Friends, I will advise you that you should start blogging with a custom domain.
You will have many benefits of using a custom domain, which I will explain to you further.
Friends, maybe now you have decided to use custom domain, now it must be coming in your mind how to set it in blogger.
You do not need to worry, today I will give you a step by step guide on how to add a custom domain to blogger.
Benefits of Adding Custom Domain in Blogger
Friends, there are many benefits of adding a custom domain in Blogger. Let me tell you about some of the main advantages.
1) Adsense Approval –
Friends, adding Custom Domain increases your chances of getting AdSense Approval Fast.
Google gives more preference to TLD domains than other domains.
No one knows whether this is true or not, but I am telling you this from my own experience.
All the AdSense Approved Websites I have analyzed have top level domain.
2) Fast Ranking –
Friends, if you use a custom domain, then your website is ranked fast in Google’s search result.
You must have observed this that on any particular keyword, only a custom domain is always visible in the top results as Compare to Free Domain.
3) Professional look-
Friends, if your domain has .com, .in, .net, that website looks professional.
You must have observed the website behind which there is a domain name of free, you do not take it seriously.
That website also does not look professional as compared to other websites.
4) Easy Migration –
Friends, this is the most important point. Suppose friends, after working on blogger for 4 months, your mind was taken to shift to WordPress.
If you have maintained your website on blogspot.com then you will not be able to shift your website to WordPress.
Because Blogspot is blogger’s domain which you cannot migrate.
But if you had a custom domain then you can easily migrate your domain as it is the domain you have purchased.
5) Alexa Ranking –
Friends, this is the biggest drawback of Blogspot.com, why don’t you create any number of backlinks.
But there is not much improvement in your Alexa Rank.
6) Branding –
Friends, if you use Custom Domain in your website, then it helps in branding of your website.
Custom Domain is your own domain, it simply means that you can use it on any platform.
But if you use Blogspot.com, then you can use it in Blogger itself and this website will be known as BlogSpot website.
That’s why you should use the use of Custom Domain so that the website is known by your name.
7) Easy SEO and Trust –
Friends, the second best benefit of using Custom Domain is that it becomes very easy to do SEO of your website.
Users trust more on websites that have extension .com, .in.
So if you use custom domain then your website growth is fast.
