My comment was i have never seen a keyword.wordpress.com site rank 1st. I accept the domains of squidoo have better authority with google. I never said . new .com will rank better and faster, read what I said. You are correct in saying it is for control purposes. You cant explain everything in a single post. I accept critisism and I am on the learning curve everyday. If your tier 2 sites are ranking better than your main site to me that is laughable I see you critisize my comments but yet I havent seen you post on this person thread of what would be best. I will leave you to help this person in setting up a new site, and help them start off. Maybe you can stop thinking like an IM pro and bring your level down to someone starting out. - Try not to be to technical and try to speak english. - I myself is not trying to start a debate or fight. my opinion is, you can disagree, but atleast then come up with some positive resolution to our friends questions here. MaingMoneyFromHome: I apoligize for most of my comments being wrong it seems - But that worked for me. You can get cheap domains and hosting from GoDaddy or Hostgator with hosting - I've said this to someone else before and it works for me. I got a unlimited domain and unlimited bandwidth shared hosting account. This means I can add domains and websites as I want to, without getting additional hosting accounts for each domain. The only issue is that the first domain you register is always your main domain. so when you have a shared account like that the folder structure in the domain will always be AdditionalDomain.Maindomain. but when you setup the site your additional domains will always be http://yourdomain or www.yourdomain. Other than that you can go for a VPS account or a reseller account. My shared hosting account costs me $7.95 pm. but I buy my hosting a year upfront.
