To setup a custom domain of your blogger blog is a good decision you ever plan. Owning a custom domain, rather than a subdomain, like createblog888.blogspot.com,,, is not easy to memorize by the user, rather than createblog888.com. Another you do not directly hold your blog site. You have no full authority. And some of the user, avoiding the subdomain site.

The best domain and hosting where you can purchase, I recommend Hosgator. This company is very professional. And they can help and address your problem arising during and after the setup of your new custom domain.

Step 11: Start Growing your Blog: By linking your blog in different Social Media like Facebook and Twitter.


After completely setup your blogger blog, you need to start building links in order to grow your site. Quality traffic is the importance of your site, quality traffic means is an income. In order to achieve this goal you need to link your blogger blog in Facebook and Twitter. In my case I use IFTTT to link my every post in Facebook.

Another is planning a better marketing campaign, you can use either email marketing and social Media. But this requires a quality contents of your site. Do your best to write a good, informative and quality post.

CONCLUSION:

To become a professional blogger and financially free because of enough income from your blogger blog is not easy. You need enough time to maintain your blog, some bloggers paid writers to write a quality article. And hire an SEO company to maintain its site technical errors free.
