If you are planning to do affiliate marketing online, it pays to have your own website. Having your own website allow you to control the content and advertisements you want to show your visitors as well as collect your visitors name and email address for future backend promotions.
None of these sites allow any type of video. That’s tough for a quasi-video blog like mine. Now I have to decide which is best for my own blog (people like video) and what drives traffic to the site and builds buzz (the articles).
Respect the rules of the blog. Some bloggers, especially A-listers, will have a comment policy in place. Take the time to read it and respect their rules. Remember, you are a guest in their house. Don’t put your feet on the table!
Duplicate Content: This is inevitable as posts can be found in multiple ways e.g. by category and by date. For Mer info SEO purposes this is bad so the search engines should be told not to index this duplicate content. Once again a plugin can be installed to do this.
The idea here is that you need to make some quick money to get into gear, and it doesnt even have to be very much. It would take you too long to develop your own product plus it would be near impossible to avoid any set WordPress blogs up or design fees.
Auto Social Poster: This is not free and so is meant for really serious bloggers. It automates the posting on social bookmarking sites as and when a new blog entry is published. Not only that you can create multiple accounts and randomise on which account to post from to make it look real and original.
Don’t bet your business on free. Self-host your own WordPress site for your main site. But learn at the knee of the marketing masters. Increase your search engine position by using the free blogs as auxillary sites, and be sure to link to the main one. Then you’ve turned a weakness (free hosted blogs) into a search engine strength.
