    yea you need to delete everything around it so it looks like a real squeeze page

    delete the archive, profile pic, the top of blogspot, dates, etc.

    I used to do it

    I don't have the page anymore to show you

    It's possible, but extremely ill-advised and unnecessary.

    It would be far better, safer, more reliable and more reliable to do that on a self-hosted WordPress blog on reliable, well-established, free hosting at Byethost, Freehostia or 000WebHost (all of whom will give you a free subdomain just like Blogger do, and none of whom will put their own advertising buttons on your pages). It also looks far more professional, of course.

    Take a look at this one, very typical, post by a highly successul, very experienced expert, before you read on: http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ml#post8367487

    The reality is that there are only really four (partly overlapping) groups of people (in "internet marketing") who use Blogger ...

    (i) People who are unaware of the unnecessary risks

    (ii) People who imagine that those risks are all problems that happen "only to other people" and that they'll be ok "if they stick to the terms of service" (this is, of course, nonsense but a lot of people believe it )

    (iii) People who don't know that you can have your own reliably self-hosted WordPress blogs without even paying anyone a penny for the blog, the theme or the hosting

    (iv) Very few people who still imagine that "they must rank well because Google owns Blogger" (seriously, there are still a few people who believe that - it's also nonsense).

    It doesn't even matter exactly what the rules say, at Blogger: they're so idiosyncratically and inconsistently applied and interpreted that there's no point trying to decide these things "logically" or "reasonably". Even Blogger themselves openly admit that blogs are sometimes deleted as part of an automated process, without human intervention, when people (competitors?) "flag" blogs!

    It makes no sense at all to let any part of your business be unnecessarily dependent on a site you don't yourself own and control.

      when u say on a self hosted wordpress blog on free hosting like Bytehost, do you mean that i register a blog address on wordpress and then to host it on Bytehost? or i just straight get on wordpress and register a blog domain?

      I had registered a couple of domain names on namecheap and not sure how do i proceed from here. do i host it on free hosting on bytehost or wordpress? which channel will have lesser concern of the content being removed like on blogger?

        You're confusing WordPress-the-software (derived from wordpress.org) with WordPress-the-hosting-site (which is at wordpress.com).

        I'd advise you not to use wordpress.com at all. It's no better or safer than Blogger. You don't need to "register anything on wordpress.com". You don't need to use wordpress.com at all, for anything, or go there at all, for anything.

        Good decision.

        Not at wordpress.com. If you want free hosting, you can use Byethost, or 000WebHost, or Freehostia (and there are others, too). You'll need to install wordpress software on your hosting, and redirect the domain-name servers of your domain-name from Namecheap to the hosting company you choose to use, just as you would if you hosted somewhere like Hostgator, Bluehost or anywhere else providing paid-for hosting. There's information available at Namecheap explaining exactly how to do this, and Namecheap's support staff will advise you further if you're stuck: they're really friendly and helpful. Good luck!

    Hi

    have to agree with Alexa here, have had experience of blogs getting shut down some with over 300 hours of content on there not nice, did not do anything blackhat or dodgy just wiped off with mine and thousands of others read threads as not as uncommon as you may think

    definitely worth self hosting your own Wordpress blog as then you are in control you can then set up squeeze page there.

    make sure you install your security plugins though as you can also get targeted here too and get hacked, yes this also happened but shows your getting noticed if you need any advice let me know as been well and truly down that road hope this helps

      Yes you can use a squeeze page on blogger no problem, if you already have a blogger blog hosted on a private domain just upload the squeeze page to your c panel and edit the necessary information.

      Blogger cannot delete your content if it's hosted on a private domain, that's the case as far as i'm aware.

        Sorry, but this isn't right at all.

        If it's hosted at Blogger, then you can still use your own domain-name for it, in the normal way (just as you would if you hosted anywhere else) but Blogger can still delete your blog. And they do. It's discussed here: http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ml#post8493526

        Using your own domain-name makes no difference at all to this situation. I'm afraid that's just a myth.

          Well i did say as far as i'm aware! So now as far as i'm aware that's not the case

    You can do but I wouldn't advise it. You can get better free hosting, I've used Byethost and it works really well.

    As far as the technical side goes you need an autoresponder, I'd suggest using aweber but there are some free ones out there if you want to go down that route. They're all pretty easy to understand

    I think practically each business I know has a mailing list. I have used the word OPT-IN but the word that should be used on your blog site would be like: Grab My Free… or Join Me or Subscribe. The expressions utilized, have a big effect to conversions. Generally guests won't comprehend what OPT-IN methods, so therefore abstain from utilizing the term OPT-IN on your blog site.
    You can use eCover Creator 3D that will help you to boost your opt-in conversions rate as you can create an amazing 3D Graphic eCover of strong offers only in one click without Photoshop or any other software. This will indeed help you to ask for an email address in exchange. Another tool that will help you in your task is Popup Domination. This is a WordPress Plugin that I use to boost my email opt-in rate by up to 300%. It mostly allows you to put a lightbox up on your blog entries pushing your mailing list. Try out once, hope this works for you.
