When someone sets out to write a blog, and especially if it is the first time you do it, it makes sense to opt for a free system log. The most common are two: Blogger and WordPress and although they may look very similar, there are small details that can make decliner by one or the other. I’ll tell you what are the advantages that I find to WordPresss against Blogger, and backwards!
Advantages of wordpress:
WordPress itself is a CMS (content management system) free, that we can install in our private hosting and use it freely. Besides this, wordpress.com provides free subdomains, which are what we use to create free blogs.
These blogs will address: mipagina.wordpress.com and admin panel will be very similar to the full version of CMS wordpress, org (the “professional” version of WordPress ” ), but not with all the options. That said I leave my list of advantages:
While it is true that blogger can make very professional designs, themes you can incorporate into your WordPress blogs are very attractive and versatile. It has a good gallery of themes, and although they are not very customizable, appearance is excellent. If you choose an installation of WordPress on your own domain, I recommend you go taking a look at the different templates that exist for WordPress, with good designs in this list or also here, visit here: https://platinumwebmedia.com.au/wordpress/
If you are thinking about having a more or less serious blog, it is logical that in a few months we step to hire our own private domain and hosting. There is no doubt; WordPress is the king against blogger. So if you have that in mind why not starts posting content and familiar with WordPress?
Although it has in recent years fallen somewhat into disuse, Gravatar is a tool that shows your avatar in the comments that you make in both WordPress and other platforms (like drupal)
Uploading pdf files
One of the biggest drawbacks that I find blogger is not able to upload files pdfs, and prepare them for download. Now you can carry through Google docs, but it’s not the same. At this point, if you are considering working with pdfs, your best choice is WordPress.
SEO: (or search engine optimization)
Without getting into a mess, it would give too much talk about SEO in WordPress and blogger, just say the ease of optimizing images with WordPress , using the alt and title tags, opposite blogger that to make the same choice, you need to edit html. Also important is the proper management of tags and categories that allows us. In this article I’ll tell you how to optimize the positioning of these categories.
Blogger is a blog platform owned by Google. Like any other google service, it is necessary to have an email address associated with Gmail.
I used blogspot or blogger for some specific project. Sounds like a great tool to get started as a blogger, and even some blogs have come to be known blogger. These are the advantages:
It is true that if you want to go deeper, you have to do base on inserting html tags and codes. But if you do not care, you can get along fine. How to post articles and upload photos to blogger is quite simple.
Belonging to Google, which has full integration with other services such as Google Docs, Google Plus, it is clear Google analytics or Picasa. If you are already using these services, familiarize yourself with the environment blogger is easy.
Although WordPress also has a large community of equal, if it is true that the community is more active blogger. The visibility of the widget to your blogger fans can not miss if you opt for blogsopt domain.
it is true that, although it is complex, it is necessary to know some html, blogger can be achieved with full customization. Moreover, the default themes are somewhat limited, but they nonetheless provide sound, professional look.
My advice to decide body WordPress or Blogger
As you saw, both tools are equally powerful, and will undoubtedly depend on how and who will use them.
If you’re going to create a blog with a professional purpose, or with the future idea one step further and have your own website, decline me no doubt by WordPress, because once you decide to purchase your own domain, will be WordPress platform more I agree, and at least the environment plugins, how to create menus and tool and you will be familiar!
