Hey guys,

Need some experienced SEO guys to comment..

If one can't afford to go out and constantly buy domain names, can you rank a free site like blogger.com just as quickly and take out the competition on the first page..

Whether it be the #1 spot or #5 spot?

I know there is much more to seo but if you follow the rules can you outrank with blogger.com sites?

Thanks in advance!
& Merry Christmas!!

Kim

            I am doing that now. I have 1 that gets about 150 uniques a day. The more posts with some decent content the better. I also add meta tags to the html source. Blogger is 1 of the top sites on Alexa.

            Of course Google is going to bend the rules for their own benefit. Google is the leader in hypocrisy.

    Of course it's possible, you may find you have to do more work in order to obtain the position, but of course it's possible, your going to want to make sure you have a good layout, your website is properly optimized and you have quality content if your serious about getting higher rankings.

    They can rank as all other websites. and maybe they rank with less effort comparing to other blogs or some websites. Optimizing them is exactly like websites. You need to write unique content to them and make backlinks for your blog from quality sites, then it ranks high for your desired keyword. You can test it as its free. Choose a keyword and make a blog in blogger for it then try to optimize it and follow its position's on Google.

      Back about 3 years ago you used to be able to point a single digg link at a blogger blog and it would rank for almost and medium to long tail term in about 6 hours. So we made lots

      Not sure if this still works or not but the base theory I'm sure hasn't changed. I know they did devalue the blogger domain some since then. But in principle it's a domain owned by google with a high value. And then was a super high value do-follow link at the time. Not sure if Digg has changed to not a do-follow now. You'd need to do your homework.

        Blogger blogs were great back then. Unfortunately, times have changed.

        The main thing that's changed is a highly aggressive, yet hamhanded, Blogger anti-spam 'bot that will lock blogs for transgressions like editing a post or hitting the post button too quickly after pasting in an article. This lock out, even though it's usually temporary as long as you request a manual review, can result in lost rankings that can be hard to recover from.

        I don't know if they're any harder to rank now than they used to be. My gut reaction is that they aren't any more difficult than a new regular domain, which is probably a bit more challenging now than it was back then. But, given the extra investment in time and/or money that's needed now, I'd prefer to spend that on my own domain, or even a subdomain, rather than on somebody else's property.

          Hi,
          I have had my blogspot url in number one position on Google since January this year. Find a good keyword for your product and then build as many links as you can.
          Good luck.

    You can have your blogger blog on page 1 of google as long as you have good content and good backlinks. To me blogger is just like any other website, you have to work at it to get to the top.

    Grizzly started an experiment about 4 years ago to see if he could get a blogspot blog to the #1 position for the highly competitive term "make money online" and he did. It was #1 up until about 6 months ago or so. Now it's gone, don't know what happened to it. He had a mountain of content on that thing.

      I've done A LOT of seo for my site; been about 2 weeks since and I'm on the first page bottom. Using blogger without EMD; top site has an EMD currently. I know for a fact I can pass it soon and blogger isn't too hard to rank IMO.
