If you are a serious internet marketer and want to make money with your blog; set your blog up on your own domain.

There are a number of benefits associated with hosting your blog on your own domain versus having your blog hosted or WordPress or Blogger.

Some of these benefits are noted below.

1 – Total Control Of Your Blog

You have control over everything when you host your blog on your own domain.  You control the layout, design, format, logo, and every other aspect of your blog.

You can also gain a substantial edge on your blogging competition by making your blog unique.

Blogs on hosted websites are limited as to their function, themes, content, advertising format, and other factors.  Hosting your blog on your own domain eliminates these restraints.

2 – Promote Your Own Brand

You can host your blog on your domain name and make it much easier for people to remember.  You can promote your own brand by making your blog headings mirror your website.  Hosting your own blog gives you more freedom to do this.

3 – SEO

Hosting your blog on your own domain, allows you to advertise and optimize your own brand.

Including keywords in your domain name increases your blog’s ranking in the search engines and increases the number of visitors to your site.

4 – Additional Security

When you host your blog on your own domain, you need not worry about losing months of work or being locked out of your account because of an infraction of the host site’s terms and conditions.
Some sites like WordPress, will suspend your account, and completely delete your blog from their website if some infraction of their terms occurs.  No prior notification is required, and often months, or years of work is lost due to some innocent infraction.

Hosting you blog on your own domain eliminates this problem.

5 – Increased Professionalism

When your business logo is inserted onto your blog, you are presenting a more professional  appearance to your customers.  The competitive advantage over other blogs, or websites not having their logos, can be quite substantial.

The advantages and benefits of hosting your own blog, cannot be overstated if you are serious about making some real money blogging.
