    I read somewhere out there in the ether today that using your registered .com name for your blog can have a detrimental effect on your search engine optimisation.

    I appreciate that content is king but it would help to have as many cards in your favour as possible.

    I would prefer to promote my blog as a dotcom but not at the expense of being found through the keywords I will be targeting.

    So do we stay as a blog name.wordpress or blog Or is there no effect?

    Would anybody be able to elaborate on this question for me please?

    Thank you.

    The blog I need help with is

    Whether you are a professional blogger, a business blogger or a hobby blogger, if you are committed to developing your brand by producing quality content over the long-term, then I recommend getting your own domain and a no-ads upgrade from the get go. Perhaps you would like to read why here >
