Banned by WordPress


WordPress blogsSo, until today I’d only heard about blogs that have been banned by WordPress. Today I found one. We always advise our clients that it is best to have a self-hosted WordPress blog, not a free one. The biggest reason is because of the SEO. On, the free site, you have little to no control over your SEO (search engine optimization) on self-hosted WordPress, the version you download to your own domain from, you have total control of your SEO and the rest of the site.

As you probably know, I think you should own your blog. It is the only part of your social marketing program that you can have complete control of. Best of all on a self-hosted site, like you will control your SEO and your destiny. You are not subject to anyone’s rules and regulations, much less their whims (think Facebook). Your self-hosted blog is sortable, indexable and searchable. When was the last time you tried to find a post you made on Facebook two weeks ago?

Happy Blogging!
