Should you buy the domain on blogspot?

I recently purchased a new domain for my height increase blog versus an older clunkier domain name and I think it was a mistake.  First, Google Friend Connect and Google search stopped working properly.  And now Google Webmaster Tools and Google Adsense are messed up.

The reason I got the new domain for $10 was to simplify the domain name.  Blog and spot are not keywords and also you can now get to the site just by typing in  I'm not sure if this was worth all that it messed up.  Google is supposed to automatically redirect but it seems to be as though the two sites are two separate entities which are fine if you bought the custom domain name in the beginning but if you bought it later...  Oh, I just checked and it is now correctly redirecting towards height quest.  It is still displaying The Quest for Height domain name in search results so I'm worried that some link juice may be lost. 

I also thought maybe I'd be able to get double link bonuses.  I could link to the blogspot domain from one c-class ip and then link to the regular dot com from that same c-class ip and get the same link juice bonus.

According to Scroogle dot Org I'm nowhere in the top 200 search results for height increase.  I do rank around number 17 for growth plates though and I'm number one for grow taller IGF-1 spots 1-4 so it could be other factors at play like me not using the keyword height increase enough on the home page(although I do have it in the external links).

Anyways, I think if you decide to buy the custom blogspot domain you should do it right away before you get any traffic to avoid confusion.  I'll do my best to adjust.

Traffic Stats Update

It's been a month since the last traffic stats update and I'm a getting a little over 400 visitors a day.  I'm getting most of my traffic for the keywords:

Peak height + Derivatives.  I ranked number one at one point even above the company.
Growth Plates.  I ranked usually at the bottom of page one, top of the second page.  This is a page where you have to compete against sites like Wikipedia but it seems easier to move up here then it does with keywords like height increase/grow taller.
How to get a Longer Torso.  Rank number three here.

Then I rank for a whole bunch of long tails that get one or two traffic hits a month and then I get traffic for branding keywords like LSJL and quest for height.  Then there's a lot of referral traffic.

In terms of proving that LSJL works there's been some traction recently with the forums but it'll still take some time to prove that LSJL works and get some good case studies.  In the meantime, I'd like to be making about $10 a day so I can focus more on proving LSJL rather than all these backlinking efforts in an attempt to build traffic to make money.

I estimate it'll take at least 3 months to prove LSJL is successful in increasing bone length and in helping people grow taller.  Then there' LIPUS and PEMF to work on as well.  I have the best luck with height increase articles anyways so just keep working on that and eventually some money will trickle in until the proof that it's possible to grow taller with LSJL.
