Hi everyone I have been working my way through the PL course for the past 3 weeks and although there is a fair bit to take in, I can honestly say that I am enjoying it! I am however completely new to internet marketing so there have been a few occassions where I have been left a little puzzled. Finding this forum has cheered me up though as there seems to be a lot of freindly and helpful advice around. There is one thing, at this stage, that I was hopeing one of you could help me out with, and I can only hope that you are not sick of guys like me coming on and asking such basic questions. While working my way through the project series and in particular the "finding unexploited niches part", Mike mentions how much easier it can be to get ranked in the search engines if you can aquire the domain name. However as I have no idea how to go about setting up a website (difficulty, cost, etc), I would much rather start of with a blog. Also as I am new I don't want to go down the Adwords route just now and would rather try and generate natural traffic. So I suppose my question is, is it just as easy to get a high search engine ranking if I have a blog with .blogger for instance, as part of the domain name as if I had a website which had the same domain name but minus the .blogger? And also, is it possible to do all the same things with a blog as with a website. i.e. multiple page blogs, videos, images etc? I hope I haven't rambled on too much and thankyou in advance to anyone who can help me out.
