What would be the differences with a blog and a self-hosted blog?

  1. Hello everyone,

    What would be the differences with a blog and a WordPress self-hosted blog?

    I mean, if I self host my blog using the WordPress blog, will people be able to click the tags and end up on's listings like with blogs?
    And will this system attract traffic to my blog too?

    Or will I simply cut out from the WordPress community, and be left on my own ?

  2. No. If you self-host, then your tags won't link to and you won't be part of the 'community'. These forums, for instance, don't offer help for self-hosted blogs. If you head over to you'll find more answers to your questions.

  3. Also see the sticky post at the top of the forum: and - The difference?

  4. If you are not on your google juice will take a big hit. Our category pages are a huge boost to blogs. And of course, if you go changing your URL all the time because you're moving, you'll lose people. It's best to make those changes early in a blog and commit to one platform, one URL.

  5. ok I see, thanks for your help :) !
