Now, you might be wondering

What is the importance of a custom domain?

First, I would start by saying a serious blogger would go for a custom domain. Yes you heard me right, I would strongly advice that you start with a custom domain as it comes with a lot of benefits.

  1. How else do you prove to search engines that you are for real? You are not just any body that creates a free blog and puts it on search engines.
  2. It gives value to your blog: Yes, having a custom domain makes a blog stand out. When you are using a custom domain its hard for your audience to tell if its a blog or a website but when using a sub-domain say it simply tells your readers that you are using a free blog.
  3. It helps rank better in search engines: When you make research on google, the top sites that appear mostly use a custom domain tho this strongly depend on what your search keyword is, but using a custom domain helps your ranking in search engines.
  4. Its easy to remember: how many of your blog readers will remember Yes some will but how about Isn’t that much more easier to recall? Sure it is.
