Firstly, I’m not a big blogger. Secondly, it is true that I had preferred you to use Blogger instead of WordPress but now I have admired that how WordPress is better than Blogger.
Now, not only I but @Mohammad also have said that if MBT had got created in this year and at this time, there would be very difficulties that @mohammad had to face to get success. I have seen some excellent writers, posting very wealthy content and frequently, with SEO optimized template, responsive template, with proper using of Labels, but they are at the bottom or above 100-1500 pageviews. Nowadays, SEO is advanced. We need some plugins like Yoast to become successful. I know that if you notice the things that Yoast do, you can do them manually in Blogger (most of them) like, Post Title should be of 62 chars, it should (words) be on headings, and keyword density should be 2%-2.5%. But, some things like adding Keywords (although, it’s not a ranking factor in Google now), you can’t add them in Blogger. You can’t publish a post with your permalink (without dates), you can’t invite peoples and force them to save their post in draft, and you can’t set it to add review stars in search engines with your dashboard only.
There are also more things you can’t do with Blogger, but you can, with WordPress.
What Features Can Help You On WordPress?
- Keywords For Posts
- Easy Support By Plugins By Sites Like GetSiteControl or AddThis
- You Can Write A SEO Optimized Post Without Knowing Much About SEO
- You Can Add Must-Have Widgets Without Copy-Pasting. Must-have widgets=attraction=success.
And there are some more things on WordPress that can help you to grow your blog faster.
There are already millions of Blogs in Google Blogger’s blog-o-sphere that are empty and are with the .blogspot domain. Now, any viewer hardly trusts any new blog with Blogspot domain because there are millions of spammy blogs and empty blogs with the .blogspot domain. (it is written two times :p)
- You can’t get trust of users if your blog is new and is with Blogspot domain [you can admire it. Take out a paper and write all the blogs you have trust on. You will see that most of the blogs you will write are with custom domain and on WordPress (more than blogger blogs)].
Do you know? Self-hosted blogs (WordPress) are more respected than Blogger ones because Blogger is free and WordPress is not free. If, one is serious about blogging, then only he would invest in WordPress and so, trust came!
So…now you can’t go easily with Blogger.
And, we are going off-topic. Let’s continue in any other place.
