Buying a domain name for a blog

Usually when your blog starts to become famous or you get some high traffic, the idea of buying a domain name for your blog must have passed through your head ...

You have to know the advantages and disadvantages of this idea before you decide any thing

A Advantages :
1-Buying a Domain name for a blog is the best SEO you can do , yes ... all search engines usually prefer a website on an independent domain .com, .net .org .... rather than any free hosted site
as, ....
2-Surely more respected from visitors
3-Higher traffic rank. the reason of this is not so obvious to me but it is so difficult for a blog on free hosting to get among the top 100,000 websites

B Disadvantages :
1-You lose All Back links You Made Before , yes this is the major disadv., you may not lose links as blogger or the host will redirect the old URL to your new domain , BUT Your Page Rank and Search results will retreat and may be unpleasant at first
2-Visitors who bookmarked you at first may not be more able to reach you (Redirection is not always guaranteed )

So the overall Advice is to buy a domain name at first , when you start building your blog
the most favorite domain seller if GoDaddy

Getting Genuine Traffic

What is Genuine traffic?

Genuine Traffic is that the visitors of a certain site or page really wanted to visit that site or page, the source is usually search engines or organic (from bookmark or written in browser URL bar directly), SO this doesn't include traffic exchange and buying traffic or auto surf programs

Advantages of Getting Genuine Traffic :

1- Getting higher Page Rank, Although Page ranking is determined by sites linking to yours, Genuine traffic is also a measure
2- SEO : The percent of your visitors who really wanted your site or found it useful is measured, this is measured through bounce rate and average time on your web page, this is directly related to how search engines rank you and determine who comes first in search results
3- Marketing and earning money : If you get high traffic rank , you would probably get a sponsor . Almost the first 100,000 sites on the web have sponsors

So, How to get Genuine Traffic

1- Genuine content : Always remain the key for alpha one sites , Do not copy and paste.
2- Description : Very important , write as much as possible with less repetition of words , describe your content wisely and write a long description specially if you are a blogger , write the 500 characters all
3- Rich content : Do not summerise , write as much as you like
4- for bloggers your blog is not usually appreciated by visitors unless it contain about 100 posts
5- Subscribe to Blog Directories and submit your blog in the right category

What is Technorati

Technorati is a very useful site

Technorati is the recognized authority on what's happening on the World Live Web, right now. The Live Web is the dynamic and always-updating portion of the Web. We search, surface, and organize blogs and the other forms of independent, user-generated content (photos, videos, voting, etc.) increasingly referred to as “citizen media.”

But it all started with blogs. A blog, or weblog, is a regularly updated journal published on the web. Some blogs are intended for a small audience; others vie for readership with national newspapers. Blogs are influential, personal, or both, and they reflect as many topics and opinions as there are people writing them.

Blogs are powerful because they allow millions of people to easily publish and share their ideas, and millions more to read and respond. They engage the writer and reader in an open conversation, and are shifting the Internet paradigm as we know it.

Technorati is considered a very powerful SEO tool

It have a high Page Rank and hight alexa Rank , so getting indexed in it is very useful for web bloggers

Adsense Alternatives

Lots of people get banned by adsense and others have hight traffic but against TOS because of copyright , so there is always a need for alternatives for adsense , However adsense is almost the best ad network .

Here are some Adsense Alternatives with a hint for each :

1- Clicksor : Excellent alternative with high revenue , but need a high traffic site and other conditions for site , you need to have a remarkable site to be accepted

2- AdBrite : The most famous alternative , with various forms of advertisements , good revenue , but non-english sites are difficult to benefit from it

3- Bidvertiser : Nice but much lower revenue than adbrite and adsense , also non suitable for non-english sites

4- AdEngage : major disadv. is you must wait until some one buys advertisement on your site , so non suitable for low traffic and non-famous sites

5- Yahoo Publisher Network : Excellent alternative but not suitable for non-English sites , For USA only

6- Text-link-ads : Good and you can publish it together with Adsense , but you must wait until some one buys a link in your site
