New Blog Location

November 10th, 2007 at 03:49 pm

I originally started using savingadvice to mirror my blogger site, as it offered 'categories', which wasn't available on the old blogger. However, it did have some drawbacks, mainly less ability to customise the blog template, and the fact that savingadvice gets revenue from google adsense ads using MY content.

The new version of blogger (came out late last year) supported categories, so the only reason I kept this blog going as a mirror site was because it appears that I have different readers here than I do at my main site enoughwealth.com. However, recently I became worried that having "duplicate" content on the two sites might be bad for my google pagerank, so I started only posting the first part of each post on savingadvice.com, with a link to the the full post on enoughwealth.com

Ever since doing that, the new posts have been getting deleted shortly after I've published them! I feel that this is a bit much, especially as there doesn't seem to be any stated policy against this, and I haven't been sent any notification that this is happening, or why.

So, I've decided to only blog on my main site from now on. I invite you to continue reading EnoughWealth at http://enoughwealth.com

Regards

ps. We'll see if this post survives, or gets purged by the mysterious SavingAdvice content police.

    Hmm. This is rather unfortunate, but I can understand why they did that.

    The blog uses their resources in the way of bandwidth and server space, but they provide the service for free, so I think it's only fair that they set their own policy regarding Google AdSense as a means of compensation.

    Also, the main attraction for these blogs are the contents themselves, so I can see why they would not like the contents to be re-directed elsewhere. While the agendas may differ, I don't think it is an unfair one. After all, are you also not in it for the money so to speak? I don't think your posts that were written in full were deleted either....

    If you have any questions or complaints, perhaps it would be best to contact Nate and Jeffrey directed. I have not found them to be unreasonable in my opinion, but yes, they do have some very specific rules regarding usage.

    I have tried emailing you several times about this, but they were never answered and it kept happening. The rules for the blogs are quite simply. We don't mind you mirroring, but all the content of the full post should appear here. The blogs aren't to be used to drive traffic to your main blog by posting a partial post with link as that takes away from the blogging community. We let you do whatever you want in the sidebar (within reason) and if you post good content, people will visit to see other writing.

    If you have any other questions about this, feel free to email me at info@savingadvice.com
