- I don’t want to lose my readers.
- I don’t want to be in trouble risking my blog.
- I have no idea about the technical structure of how a blog works.
- I thought I am fine being on blogspot.com domain and will move to WordPress when I feel like.
then changing your blog’s URL will leave you losing your Page and Alexa Rank.
If you are fine with a sub-domain forever that’s your decision but if you wish to change it in future.
I suggest you do it now!
“If your blog has a reputation and a page rank, Google knows about it and you will get back to that state again soon”
Buying a custom domain is the easiest thing. And in only a few $$, you can have a custom domain still hosted on bloggers.
Friends this was not easy. While my blog was in transition I was going nuts. Because I had no clue what I was doing. I went through hell thinking I did something wrong. Because my blog was operating on two different hosts. I had my old blog operating and my new blog operating. My entire site available on two different domains. I was freaking out thinking I have done something wrong, should I go back to blogspot.com or what.
And I found this superb article on Blog’s custom domain in transition, this answered all my worries and questions.
I really hope this helps someone out there.
If you think I did something wrong, I would love to hear what You think?
