Free blogging sites also make it easier for blogs to get indexed by search engines. This is especially true for sites like Blogger which is controlled by Google. Because Google’s spiders crawl through blogs created and hosted through Blogger on a regular basis, its users can not only start blogging for free but also have their blogs easily get indexed and appear in search engine results. This means that even with minimal Internet marketing efforts, new bloggers can begin gaining traffic and start to make money online.
However, free blogging sites cannot be the last stop for those who truly want to make money online. This is because being hosted by free blogging sites does not come across as very professional. High-profile blogs are those that Internet users can really trust and that is very important if people want their blogs to gain loyal readership. For this reason, as soon as a blog gains a sizable readership, it is important that it has its own domain and that it is hosted by a professional service. This will also make it more attractive to advertisers. Bloggers can then sell space directly to advertisers and truly make some money by blogging.

As soon as the readership is sizable enough, the next thing to do is purchase a domain and makes use of a professional web hosting service. This allows bloggers to increase their potential to make money blogging.
