I have been blogging about personal finance and its related subjects since October 2008. So it has been well over a year-and-a-half of posting – well over 650 – to my blog.
I started blogging initially to share my own thoughts and beliefs, especially as an immigrant.
Folks’ ways of doing things in the old country handling their finances are quite different than what is normal and everyday practice in the Western World in general and the United States in particular [read using credit of all sorts.]
One very important difference back there is, folks use cash even when they do transactions in millions.
What they do is the buyer and the seller both go to either one’s bank. The transaction is made by the bank right there and then. No credit, no debt. No nothing.
If you have not enough money in the bank for the transaction, it is never done. That’s how properties of millions of dollars are bought and sold, not to mention cars, businesses, and other such entities of greater value. It’s pure cash, I would say in at least 99% of such transactions.
Anyway, coming back to the business of blogging. In the beginning my main purpose was to share information and in the process help those who have problems with budgeting and the consequent creation of debt in folks’ financial life.
However, now I have come to a stage – with more than 650 posts on a variety of subjects – and still getting page rank as 1, that I should change my tactics and concentrate on Internet Marketing of my blog.
I have written on SEO topic and have covered quite a few things and transformed my blog in action as well so that my blog can benefit from my own advice to others.
My current blog
My current blog is running off of my website – it’s a sub-domain. My website is How to create a website. It’s domain name is “mywebsiteworkout”. I have not given proper attention to my website because it’s static and the most I do is write articles on my blog about SEO and such topics with link on my website to these articles. So I won’t have the duplicate articles scenario between the two.
Want to have two independent entities – website and blog
I read somewhere that the sub-domain site follows the main domain in page ranking. In my case, the main website is at http://www.mywebsiteworkout.com with a page rank of 1 and the blog is a sub-domain “http://mywebsiteworkout.com/personal-finances/” with the same page rank. So I decided to have a brand new “Add-on” domain name, register it independent of the existing domain.
Then I will have two independent sites that will have nothing in common, except maybe a link on each site to the other:
In a Nutshell
The new domain http://doablefinance.com will have all my existing 650+ posts. For that, I will do a backup of my current WordPress blog which I do anyway. I am talking to my hosting service how best I can do that.
Please Help to how best to go about it
Any help will be very much appreciated.
