Owning Your Own Content

3 replies
From my research owning your own content is almost a must. For example not to long ago I was working on a blog that was discussing some of the latest trends and I made about 100 blog posts on this blog and it was getting traffic. Then, out of nowhere BAM! it was gone of the internet forever and removed, I am not afraid to admit I made a mistake, and some how google thought that the content was copied.

Fast forward to today, I've bought my own domain,hosting, and not only am I seeing better results with my SEO rankings, but I have the piece of mind knowing that I own my own content without worrying about it anymore. I highly recommend spending a little cash for the high reward or peace of mind.

    A big drawing point for IMers is not being under someone else' control. Freedom is important.

    I like having my own domains, but I haven't been too satisfied with having my own products, even though I did write a paperback book that is sold on Amazon, and doing okay. I don't have the will or the patience to write another. Some people have a team that writes and promotes ebooks for them. That might be a good way to go.

    I like using my own blogs with Adsense and CPA monetization methods. I can change advertisers in a heartbeat. I read about a guy who recently sold his blog for fifteen million dollars. The blog was two years old, and he tried to make a post to it every day.

    Excellent point. Take a step farther, too. Own your content, and also re-purpose it. Don't just use it once on your blog. Submit it to article directories with a link to your blog. Make a power point video from it and post to YouTube with a link to your blog. Too many marketers (myself included a lot of times) are too shortsighted when it comes to the many uses of one piece of content.
