Here’s how to get free domain for blogger.
Do you know? Lots of people wish to gain that chance to share their ideas on the web. This means they want to start their blog too but in one way or the other they don’t have enough money to buy the necessary things.
A domain name is the most essential requirement that powers a blog.
Money is a barrier that stops most bloggers from acquiring a domain.
I have a discovery that will get free domain for blogger easily.
Before we begin….
Why should you use a free domain?
♦ If you cannot afford popular domain extensions then a free domain is your best bet.

Please note: Domain extension has no SEO influence therefore if you get a .tk, .ml or .ga extension and build equal links to it then it will rank as popular extensions do.
