    It doesn't matter If the hosting is free or not.

    It's all about targeted traffic.

    One of my CPA managers tells me that Sites.Google.com and BlogSpot both tend to rank faster for their affiliates than squidoo does. Back in the days I ran a blog on blogger and made a little bit for a little bit of traffic, So yea, do it, it's viable.

    As yukon said, it's about targeted traffic. That is, you got to get traffic, and it needs to want what you are writing about, because that's how they will end up liking the relevant to your content ads, and clicking them.

    BlogSpot is viable, especially if you use it with integrity and work at it like a "real blog".

    That all being said however: Remember that Blogspot owns your hosting. It can change at any time, from policies to offerings. The only SECURE way to do it, will be to make your own blog. You'll do the same things either way to get word out about your site, the difference is, that with a paid host, you will own it.

      I make quite a bit on squidoo. I can only guess as to blogger,
      because there seems to be no way to track. I look at
      my unaccounted for clicks, and assume that's from blogger.

      Thing is, I use blogger and squidoo to funnel traffic and
      get links. The money is just a bonus. Free links and free
      money. You can't beat it. It also gives you options on
      FB and tweeting. Along with your dot coms, you would
      have 3 places to tweet and FB about, spreading the "spam"
      over multiple pages.

        Connect your Adsense to Analytics & you can track the Adsense income at page level, then you won't have to guess which pages are earning money.

    The earnings depend on number of visitors you get. It doesn't matter either your blog is free or paid. Blogger is a very good platform and you can manage your blog easily. I've a free blog on Blogger and in the past two months, I earned around 1000$. The sum was earned in last 10 days of September and the first 7 days of October. I was getting a good organic traffic those days as the ICC T20 Cricket world cup was being played and a discussion platform for cricket lovers was there on my blog

    first of all if you're using blogger i suggest you buy a domain name to map it with your blog.

    if you can make google search on any niche you'll find a lot of blogspot website with high rankings and also receiving massive traffic

    you'll have to optimize it the way you optimize normal websites. you should do keyword optimization properly, build quality backlinks to your pages, and update your blog daily or weekly with fresh content

    Yes, Blogger has a huge potential. Almost all the money making ideas except the few can be implememted. However don't ever try to cheat Google as they can kick your ass anytime for violating their terms.
    If used in a proper way you may get ahead than many people you heard about.
    Good luck..................

    Regards,
    Prakash

    Yes, I've 2 blogs on blogspot that earns me $xxx per month.
    Simple strategy:
    Create blog and attach it with TLD.
    Send traffic to it though your niche related blogs, forums, bookmarks and social media.

    It doesn't matter if you use blogger.com, wordpress.com or just a custom .com domain. All you have to do is to choose really careful the niche and build HIGH QUALITY backlinks in order to drive TARGETTED traffic (which is really important to boost your earnings!)

  • Blogger.com is an one of the best custom domain. you can easily use this and rank quickly. This is my personal opinion.

    Steal my content, post it to your blogspot and you'll easily outrank me. Lol.

    True story, it really happened.

    Blogger is great for ranking, but just bear in mind that when you get popular your blog could get shut down (e.g. Griz, and a lot of blogs I've had bookmarked).

    I hear people say blogger ranks faster/better sinc it's a google product, also seen people do experiments / case studies showing wordpress blogs getting better traffic in shorter time so not sure about that.

    that said i make $100-$150 a month with like 4 blogger blogs.

    as for strategy i had a big uptick when i started placing three ads above fold. large banner across top, 250x250 square on right top below top banner and to right of content and skyscraper 160x600 down left side. that made a big dif for me

      Way back in the day, when blogger was the ONLY way to push google's new ADWORDS... yes... you get pref treated.

      Now, it's all wordpress...

      Pros use wordpress. They write better engrish. They get more traffic. They make google more money via installed adsense.

      ALSO... since the FCC is on google like white on lice... they're going easy on pointing to their own sites... like youtube. knol

    I think Blogger blogs have a ranking advantage, but they get deleted way too easily. I made a blog the other week then after only 4 posts, it said the blog has been removed. I then made a blog the next day and exactly the same damn thing happened.

    What is weird is that you see some blogspot blogs with over 100 posts that are just spam and non original content yet they haven't been deleted.

    Blogger could be good if it had a spam system similar to Squidoo's. For some reason, Squidoo doesn't remove lenses so easily like blogger removes blogs. Maybe it's because Squidoo requires original content, whereas with blogger they do not have that rule so it's more of a target for spammers.

    I think Blogger should only accept original content like Squidoo then it might make the platform more robust.

    Yeah, free blog sites can definitely start earning some money, but like all things, you'll eventually want to start putting your money into it to make better use of that content and drive up your earnings.

        Who cares we know what he meant. As far as the question in OP I've earned a good income on blogger for a while (in the past). I never had a blog deleted for any reason and I've been using blogger for 3 yrs.

    I earn a few bucks per day off my blogger accounts. It's not much, but it's extra (free) income. The bonus is my blogger brings good traffic to my money site.

      Hi, I want to add my own real experience with blogger. No matter it ranks higher or not? The point is why we do so much hard work??? I think to get some reward.
      Few months back I started blogging. I spend days and nights to rank my blog.
      First its not as easy as many thinks may be blogger is a sub domain, I mean the word blog spot. But i don't know the reason. OK after so much hard work and effort I was able to take the 9 spot for my keyword.

      I was so happy as after a long and hard struggle I have achieved the rankings. OK
      Then one day as usual I opened my gmail and I was not able to open my account as it says an unusual activity is seen in your account so, I was asked for mobile verification. I than get access to my gmail and then i checked my blogger account...and Now I hope you all can guess what happened. My blog was deleted..because of spamming. I was so surprised as I have original content everything original. So, just imagine 4 months of hard work and effort just ended in a moment. if you have any doubt on my words, you can see my sig..
      Also want to say yes still I used blogger again but for just back-link...again.all the time afraid...........as you competitors don't hesitate to mark your blog as Spam.. So, if you can afford use any cheap hosting you want

        That sucks. It's frustrating when it happens. What message did you get exactly when your blog was removed? I don't think it's competitors in most cases, I think it's the automated spam system which is flawed. It's a shame because blogger could be a nice platform if it was robust.

    Its very easy to rank blogspot sites. Easier than any other web 2.0. I have tested it and my blogspot sites rank the fasted and rarely get penalized. I figure its because Google owns them and wants to promote their own platform.

      With due respect. I want to ask have you never seen Squidoo and hub pages ranking higher than blogger.

      Even you are using word-press. I am not against blogger. Yes blogger is so easy to use. but its not your own property,
