Hi.
I bought some blog reviews for my site.
The reviews started to rank on first page for my keywords.
It was a blogspot blog. (xyz.blogspot.com/my-keyword.html)
I bought the blog from the owner.

This blog is unrelated to my niche. But as it is a quality blog, subpages,etc. rank very well. But its title,desc, country, etc. is completely different from my niche.

Now how I can make use of it?

If I change its title and desc., will it sandboxed?

What if i buy a domain that contains my keywords, and 301 it from blogspot panel?

Or any other opinion based on experience.

Thanks all in advance.

    You can't 301 a blogspot.

    The best you can do on a blogspot redirect is a javascript redirect which is only for redirecting traffic (not SEO).

    You would be better off leaving the blogspot intact & using it for links.

      But in the panel, there's a option for 'buying normal domain'

      If i buy a normal domain (mykeyword.com) and enter it, i think it will be good for seo? as old domain name is unrelated to my niche.

      I try to make the whole site to related my niche.

        I thought this was hilarious. Do you know what the term sandbox means?

    Yukons Advice is correct- I would go and by a domain for as yes the content would pass over eventually but really best option is to keep and work with the bogspot site. Been in SEO for 10 years- maybe an expert? more like a constant learner and tester

        That's wrong. The content is still hosted on blogspot servers regardless If you have a custom domain name or not.

        BTW, I have a few blogspots that are at least 6 years old, still active with no problems. The folks that preach all that "Blogger will delete your blog" are folks that don't have time for following any TOS, so really it has nothing to do with blogger.

        One thing I will say, never comment on another blogspot blog.

    Depends - You can use a normal domain within Blogspots hosting system -which I believe (but I am not sure) still allows them control as technically they are a webhost.

    The other option is to move the domain and the content from blog to the new site giving you full control. On another point are you tracking the traffic and the results on your site (conversion or action taken) from the visitors that came from the site. Oh and the the blog posts might be ranking high because they are new content, that doesn't mean they will stay high- depend on market competition etc

    Thanks for your helps Paul. I am not good at seo but i know my niche very well.
    Even being on first page is too difficult. Of course it still need backlinks,etc. to go to top, but it is a gold mine for me. So, there is no problem about the blog.

    Not because of conversions or actions taken. But at past i paid a few thousands dollars, which ended me on maximum 4.page (and it is ok. the ones on the first spots pay ten thousands/month).

    I want to start to work for this blog (backlinks, new posts,etc) but first I want to be sure that its foundation is strong for its new niche.

    If you're going to go with the transfer to your own hosting/domain route, this may help. I encountered the same difficulties and outlined the solutions here.
