WordPress vs. Blogger?


Many people who are either just starting as internet marketers or have some (internet) experience but are intimidated technically may feel that they only have one option for creating their blog, Blogger.com.

Blogger.com is a top-rated blogging platform, and for a good reason. It is simple to use and easy to get up and run. Another trendy and powerful blogging platform is WordPress. WordPress has a few advantages of its own. WordPress blogs are very customizable, and many plug-ins can help one receive high search engine rankings. In this article, we will discuss both Blogger and WordPress to determine which can help you make the most money.

Blogger: Blogger is owned by Google and has seen substantial upgrades in the past few months. Many new features are available, such as RSS feeds, videos, newsreels, and polls. You can purchase a domain name and have Blogger host it for free. Until now, that was one of the biggest knocks against Blogger. Blogger would host your blog for free, but your domain name would include Blogspot. Another negative was that bloggers could delete your blog without warning and without you doing anything about it. I’m unsure if having your domain changes anything; Blogger could still delete it because they are hosting it for free.

However, Blogger does have some real positives. It is easy to use. You can set your blog up in minutes and have it up and running quickly. Blogger also has many new features that your visitors might get a lot of value from.

WordPress: Initially, WordPress blogs were primarily used by those who were either good technically or adventurous enough to give them a go. However, now anyone can set up a WordPress blog very quickly. This is because many hosting companies are Fantastico Enabled, which means they do most of the heavy lifting for you. With a few clicks, you can have a primary WordPress blog.

To make your blog powerful, you will need to add some plug-ins. You can find a great list of plug-ins if you do a Google search. After finding the ones you want, you need to upload them. This has been the beginner may get a bit intimidated. But there is no need to be. If you can upload a website, you can upload a plug-in.

One of the best things about WordPress blogs is that you own them since you must host them yourself. That means that you can never be locked out of it or have it deleted. You can also fully customize it to fit your personality and tastes. WordPress blogs also do very well in search engines; readers like them because they look more professional than blogger templates.
