So, the title pretty much covers the core idea.
I looked at a lot of posts about "Medium Vs Own Blog" here. Basic summary is: "have your own blog so that you have full control"
Now, on the side of what's good about Medium: Thanks to the fact that it has high domain authority etc, hopefully an article targeting a low competition long tail keyword... should start to rank pretty fast. (Or not. Anybody tried this formula out?)
Note about "low competition": Basically any keyword where Google is showing forums etc as the top search results and the articles are not fully relevant to the "keyword".
Now, once it starts to rank and Google decides to try it out in the SERPS..and if the article is good and solves the searchers query...maybe it gets decent Google traffic since Google will see few bounces etc.
Then, if all of that works out: in the article I promote the SAAS product I am going to build.
What do you guys think of this plan?
The only reason why I don't want to do this on a brand new blog / website is becuase Google will take ages to give the domain some credibility.
What are your thoughts on all this? Anybody tried this out? What were your results?
