Reasons Why You Should Get a Custom Domain for Your Blogs.
Many people who was encourage to blog and find it interesting is not familiar with the techies that revolves blogging. Usually the first thing that we learn is how to write articles. Some are just telling stories of their day by day experiences. Some are merely blogging just for fun. They create their first blog as their name included in their domain like juantamad.blogspot.com. They don't even have an idea of custom domain. A top level domain like .com.net.org. I am sure that if they just know the reasons that someone who blog should buy a custom domain they will buy it. Free platforms like blogger and wordpress are offering subdomains for bloggers and it is totally free. I am also fan of making blogspot blogs before but I realize that I need to buy a custom domain before its too late like in my first blog. Here's a list of benefits that a custom domain will give you.

Benefits of using a custom domain for your Blogger blog


Reputation
- We are all aware that a custom domain (.com, .org, .net) is more reputable in blogosphere than a subdomain (.blogspot.com, .wordpress.com). If you saw a tutorial about something and then find it in two site the other one has custom domain i.e www.blogs911.com and other one is www.blablabalabla.blogspot.com will you go for subdomain? personally i would trust the costumed site because it harness reputation and seriousness on blogging thus affecting your readership.

Google Adsense- I know what  you feel buddy. To be accepted in adsense program you need to eat some stone. haha. I am blog for almost a year before I got accepted in adsense. The main reason for this is that I don't have any good traffic. Do you know that  having a custom domain will increase your search engine visibility thus converting a good traffic?!

Search Engines Exposure- Custom domains has a good advantage in search engine indexing. They are all prioritize in search engine.

Advertising- Custom URL will be your best advantage in finding your advertisers. Many advertisers are looking for reputable blogs that will suit their products. Do you think having a blogspot domain will tell them that you are serious enough in blogging?
