As my internet and blogging trip goes on I’m eager to learn how things are working out there. I have spoken before that I don’t get more than 100 unique hits per day so I want to know why the hell that happens? I’m really getting angry as writting a blog isn’t so easy as people might think.
One thing is for sure, writting good content is not merely enough to attract new visits (I am not saying my content is the best though:), there are tons of other things you must consider: SEO, Fast loading times, Keywords of pages, Links, Links and Links again,…and there is also hosting, good domain names, brand recongition, blog looks etc…
So why I’ve chosen to get my blog on WordPress.com?
My preposition is that WordPress.com and other similar sites out there have much better positioning in search engines so starting your own blog is something you really have to plan carefully. WordPress also has its own established community so you probably get much more attention, at least when you’re starting blogging.
Pitfalls of transfering your blog to oher platforms
- You lose your independance (not literally:) as your design is dictated by new rules
- You can’t advertise whatever you want
- You’re not administrator anymore (controlling everything in admin becomes a wishfull dreaming)
- I won’t enumerate more lines, I suppose you know what I think, respect:)
Please Note that my blog will not be transfered to wordpress.com platform as this is just the experiment in my exploration of traffic sources to web sites! It has nothing to do with performance of my blog and will be terminated (schwarzenegger way:) when experiment ends.
