Before we go into the details about website innovations, let us first go back in time just a bit and talk a little about domains and hosting. I have bought many domians and used domain and hosting companies, too many to count. Godaddy, network solutions, bluehost and others whom I cannot even remember their names. I have purchased domains and hosting over the years to gain new ground on Google for either my own search engine optimization business, or for clients. Some of the hosting companies have been quite good, others like Godaddy, fall very short in the pursuit of offering good hosting for money spent. This has all led to one conclusion.
Now, you may or may not be familiar with Google Domains. Actually, up until the last few months, I had never purchased domains and hosting from them. I was with Godaddy, and they fell very short of offering me what I needed in regards to domains and hosting. their service was costly, unresponsive, and quite frankly, their customer support was awful. I will never ever darken Godaddy domains and hosting services again. But back to Google Domains.
I purchased my first Goodle domain just a few months ago. I had no real idea what to expect. I purchased the domain and forwarded it to a Blogger.com blog. Honelstly, I have always loved Blogger.com blogs. They offer everythiing needed in the way of promoting tools and the templates are just great and very easy to use and even to manipulate the html code a bit. I like Blogger.com blogs as opposed to Wordpress blogs because they do not over promote themselves. Wordpress is notorious for self promotion in each and every page of the blog, even if you have purchased the templates! I did a research project on Wordpress and found thousands of links hidden from view that promoted them NOT you!
The main issue with Blogger.com was the inability to rewrite the metatag and keywords for maximum benefit on the search engines. I thought this not possible and was one of the main drawbacks to the service, I thought! I discovered a rare gem of wisdom that change my entire opinion of Blogger.com forever!
And now, to the podcast!
