Some Temporary Disadvantages

  • Page Rank and Alexa Rank
This is the most worst point that causes many blogger to escape from custom domain. A sub domain will loose everything such as page rank,alexa rank and backlinks when it redirect to custom domain But this effect will be temporary once crawler index all of your blog pages corresponding to your custom domain you will get same page rank for your new domain in next update.

  • Traffic Decrease
Due to new domain you can also get a sharp decrement in your blog traffic so don't frustrate, now you have to update your blog frequently to attract search engine spiders with a reason to index blog pages in relative to your new domain.


  • Custom Domains Attracts Publishers
Custom domain always attracts publishers to your blog,it have more priority than a free sub domain.A custom domain always make your blog eligible to earn some extra money.Though the no.1 online publisher Google Adsense allows sub domain blog,but the process is very tough.BSA the most adsense alternate online publisher doesn't support any subdomain blog for their programme.

  • Increase Your Readership
It is well prove that number of subscriber increase to double or triple after geetting a custom domain, which is very interesting. Usually reader prefer to follow trusted blog that provide genuine and unique articles on regular basis. A sub domain is treated as temporary blog that can shutdown anytime because it is hosted on free service and shutting down that blog will not harm anything to author or founder. One of my friend when switch to custom domain its twitter and facebook likes just tripled. Hence custom domain will increase your subscriber rate which will further increase your blog traffic.
