I have a new blog and i plan to move it to a new domain ASAP (sana by the end of the year). What domains do you suggest I move it to and sana mabilis siya at a very affordable price.

Ayoko na kasi ng eh gusto ko na siya.

Any suggestions? Patulong naman sa mga more seasoned bloggers diyan. Thank you!!

Also, if I move it to a new domain, super laki ba yung difference in the case of traffic, SEO and google search compared to staying in blogspot?

Your question is kind of hard to answer because you seem to be mixing things up. What do you mean when you say domain? Since you already have a domain name that you want,, why are you still asking what "domain" to transfer to?

I suspect you actually mean "hosting" instead of "domain". In that you have a bunch of options. You could have a domain ( and use the domain name servers of blogger so that you don't have to pay for hosting fees. Explore the settings of your blogger account to learn more about this.

On the other hand, you could pay for hosting like I do. I've used, ANHosting, IXWebhosting and Hostican. Hostgator is the best, IMHO. Cheapest is Hostican. Don't go for IXWebhosting.

You can register your domain name through namecheap,, godaddy, and the likes. I like

Sorry, I did mix things up and I originally meant hosting. I will look up the suggestions you gave. I just want to try and do thing right the first time, which is why I'm asking for advice.

Thank you very much!

going to host your blog site with your own domain name is a good idea.

I just found out that if I use blogger platform, I can register it using for $10 every year. It seems to be a very good deal. I will probably try it out ASAP.

So, will it really affect traffic, SEO, etc?

Another weird question... :)

Traffic comes after you've worked your ass off producing quality content and promoting it. This is regardless of whether it is on blogspot or not. SEO is the process where you promote a site such that its rankings in the search results are improved for relevant keyphrases or keywords.

@Jquiogue did you wrote your website content ? wala ako maisip na keyword masyado doon. Baka mahirap maka attract ng traffic from search engine unless of course you will discover keyword from that niche or topic. Maybe [motivational stories] and [inspirational quotes]  keywords. Need mo makarank ng kung kaya mga ganyan keyword para dumami traffic mo

I know that. But I did read something about your website doing better in search rankings (and thus getting better traffic) once .blogspot was removed. It said something about having blogspot in your domain name would rank you lower and make your site less appealing.

I just wanted to clarify on that. Any proof on this?

Thank you

^ no. It's not true that having your own domain makes your site rank better with search engines than having that domain.

In fact, when you've switched to custom domain from, your site will rank lower - usually temporarily. You actually lose many of the stats, including the PR. It takes time also for google to index your blog. There are occasions when you also lose the search engine traffic because the old links are slowly deindexed to make way for the new custom domain.

If you need to rank again, you will definitely need to build backlinks again.

Having may make you (but not always) less appealing to visitors who knows the difference between "" and a custom domain but to majority of human visitors that come from the search engines, they don't care whether you're using a custom domain or a as long as they are able to find what they are looking for. I've seen numerous blogs that are respectable with just a domain; I've also seen blogs with that custom domain, but contains lot of rubbish. There are those blogs that have made it high in the searches beating those ones with the custom domains.

^ Thank you very much for answering my question. I'll take that well into consideration. I guess if I do move, I'll have to submit my site to blog directories again and continue to build backlinks. My new blog is one month old so far so it might be good to get a domain ASAP, despite the extra work

From my experience, changing my blogspot to a domain that I own using the custom domain function of blogger didn't really affect my traffic for a long time. There was an initial drop but I quickly regained it all back without doing anything at all except writing new posts. I think the redirection that happens is a 301 redirect which passes on the authority and the link juice from the old to new. Up to now, most of the links that point to that site of mine still points to the blogspot address and still passing on juice. Don't worry about this. But of course, it probably won't hurt to build new links all the time. Note that I said "probably"... :)

I've actually shifted my current business strategy and have resolved not to actively build links for the near to medium term. At least not tons of it like I used to do. I'm not sure if you guys are experiencing the same but artificial links (mostly in-content, guest-post type) that I have been producing doesn't seem to be doing anything significant to my rankings anymore. Google is up to something and I'm going to future-proof my business by stopping building links (as an experiment)!!! Hahaha. The world has gone upside-down!

^ I have noticed that after my PR2 blog went back to NA.

From what I've been getting out of this, I guess it would be best if I move to a custom domain by next month. It makes my site more credible and since link building isn't as important as it was before, then it would be a wiser decision to do it now.

Thank you everyone for all the help! :D
