The advantages and disadvantages of Wordpress vs. Blogger.

Wordpress vs. Blogger

The first thing you need to do before starting a blog is deciding what you want to write about - if your goal is to get views then you will want to pick a topic that is general enough to appeal to a large audience.

The second thing you need to do is decide where you want to publish your blog and there appears to be two main contenders: Wordpress and Blogger each with their own advantages and disadvantages. I think choosing a site is important because once you have gained views and followers (however minimal) you will no longer want to move your content.

Lets look at Wordpress first:


- there seems to be a better community on Wordpress as I see my blogs get a lot more comments than on Blogger
- more templates to choose from
- easy to add Pinterest link to all your articles
- slightly more user friendly than Blogger

Blogger


- more customizable with fonts, etc.
- apparently some say it is easier for your account to be approved by AdSense when you have a blog on blogger (which I can not confirm or deny)
- also there are claims that Blogger has a faster loading speed compared to Wordpress
- Blogger has higher SEO
- it's very easy to apply adsense to your account
- although I originally liked the ease of use of Wordpress I have gained considerable more views with my blog on blogger entitled 101 Things to do

My Conclusion

So if it is your intention to get high views than I would choose Blogger however if you're more concerned with ease of use and template options then I would choose Wordpress.
