Janet from Santa Monica, CA

Janet has a blog on Blogger and the URL is really long. She'd like to change the URL (, but she's worried she'll lose views by changing the name. Leo says that Janet should go into the domain management settings in blogger and have a custom domain name forward to the Blogspot site. It's called domain redirection and it shouldn't affect her Google ranking.

How can she make money on her site? Leo suggests using Google AdSense right away. Check out the book "Google AdSense Secrets" too.
