Adding a custom domain to your blog brings more professionality and increase your rankings in search engines. Adding a custom domain to your blogger blog will change your blog address from yourblog.blogspot.com to yourblog.com, yourblog.tk, yourblog.net or whatever domain extension you registered. Today I am going to share a great tutorial on how you can register free .tk, .ga, .gq, .cf, .ml domains for your blog and use it as a custom domain name in blogger.
