So all our new blogger brothers always have a problem, I used to have the same problem that after all which platform would be right to choose Blogger or WordPress, that is why in today's post I will tell you Blogger VS WordPress
But the two main platforms on which a professional website can be built are Blogger and WordPress.
So these two platforms are used the most. Both the platforms have different features and disadvantages as well.
But let me clear one more thing that it also depends on which platform is right for whom.
So friends, in this article, I will give you the complete details of both the platforms, what are its advantages or what are the disadvantages are, we will talk about all the things, then read the whole article till the end.
What is Blogger?
So friends, as I told you earlier that Blogger.com is a very good platform for blogging, here you can start your own blog.
And the best thing about this platform is that it is a product of Google itself, so you will not face any kind of problem.
In this platform, you get all the things on the dashboard, like theme editor or all the other important things. The good thing is that if you have a little knowledge of HTML (HyperText Markup Language) then you can do customization easily.
And the biggest point due to which this platform is used the most is its free service, here you can start a website absolutely free.
You will also get the domain here for free but blogspot.com will also be installed in it. Suppose you have selected bidyapremi then the domain you will get for free will be bidyapremi.blogspot.com
And it is not that the site hosted on blogger does not rank, you can do the research yourself and see. And you can also put your own custom domain on blogger.
So if you want to make a website from a blogger, then your cost will be only to get the domain. But if you do not want to do that too, then you also get the domain for free.
- If you use Blogger then you do not need to take hosting, you can live your website on the internet without taking hosting.
- You can take domains for free as many as you want. And it is not even that they do not rank the domain, blogger's domain also comes in the top-level domain.
- For Blogger, you will get a lot of themes online for free, through which you can easily create a professional blog or website.
- The site hosted on Blogger is never down, no matter how much traffic it gets.
- Here you do not need to get an SSL certificate, you get the option to enable it for free in the dashboard of Blogger.
- If you make a website on Blogger, then you must have knowledge of HTML because it is completely based on HTML.
- Now because blogger is based on HTML, you do not get the option to install any kind of plugin here, you have to implement anything by coding.
- In Blogger, you cannot completely make changes to your site. Like URL Viagra, you do not get the option of all these things anywhere.
- On Blogger, you do not get to see customer support as good as you get on WordPress.
- A professional website cannot be created on Blogger as compared to WordPress. Because neither plugins are installed in blogger nor premium theme.
What is WordPress?
So now let's talk about what is WordPress? WordPress is a very good and most usable blogging platform where you can create your own professional website or blog.
If seen, WordPress has more advantages than Blogger because you can design a blog, change or create things as you wish here.
Whether you have HTML knowledge or not, you can do customization directly. And because you get the option to install plugins, then you can add a lot of things so that your website will be very good.
Moreover, because you can install plugins with a lot of SEO, then if you install SEO plugins on your website, you can think that you will get a lot of help in SEO.
Now because WordPress gives you the best facilities, then you will have to pay something too. You have to buy hosting, not WordPress.
And the domain has to be taken. On the Online you will find so many hosting companies which provide you hosting at a cheap cost and also gives the best services.
So you can install WordPress from there using those hosting. Before that, you have to purchase a domain and connect it to hosting.
- You can install Plugins in WordPress. With the help of which you can add different types of things to your blog or website and from which you will also get benefit in SEO.
- If you use WordPress, then even if you do not have the knowledge of HTML, you can do full customization without worrying about anything.
- It is very easy to do the menu or other customization in WordPress.
- If you face any kind of problem or problem in your WordPress panel, then you can talk to their customer support or customer support of your hosting provider.
- WordPress site ranks faster than Blogger's site. Now it is not even that the site hosted on Blogger does not rank, but there is a slight difference.
- The biggest cons are that you cannot use WordPress for free. You will have to purchase both hosting and domain, only then you will be able to use it.
- In WordPress, you get storage according to the hosting, which means you can store as much data as you have been given in your hosting plan. But it is not like this in Blogger, you can store as much data as you want. But if you buy a good hosting plan, then you get the option of unlimited storage in it.
Blogger VS WordPress
So friends, as you read about both Blogger and WordPress and also see some of their pros and cons, then you must have understood a little which platform is better.
WordPress without a doubt.
But before that, we have to compare both the platforms in a little more detail. So let us now point to point all things about Blogger VS WordPress.
Talking about the installation, Blogger is the winner. Because in WordPress, you have to purchase hosting first, then install and set up WordPress, then some things become more but not difficult at all.
There is nothing like this in Blogger, you just have to create an account and start writing articles by uploading themes, etc. So Blogger is better in terms of installation.
In terms of cost too, Blogger is the winner here of Blogger VS WordPress. Because like I told you earlier that you have to buy hosting separately for WordPress, then you can use WordPress and you have to take a domain, then in the case of WordPress, the cost goes up a bit.
It is not like this in Blogger, you just have to connect the domain, you do not have to buy some hosting.
Here Blogger is also good in terms of control. Because you do not get many things on Blogger and because you do not need to connect to the host, then you do not need to manage that too.
But this is not the case in WordPress at all. You also have to maintain hosting with WordPress, however, once you learn, it is not a difficult task.
Features are the most important point and the winner of this point is WordPress without any doubt.
Because you get the most features in WordPress so that you can push your blog or website or you can make it better. Like the feature of plugins etc.
It is not like this in Blogger, you do not get many features. You get a simple layout, you have to work in that only. Only coding remains a means to make changes or to implement.
In terms of security also you will get better WordPress and WordPress is the winner because you can use many types of plugins in WordPress, then you can easily use them by installing plugins for some security there.
Blogger does not have any kind of plugins installed, that's why you do not get to see any kind of security in it.
In terms of storage, Blogger may be the winner here or not, it means that there is no doubt that you get unlimited storage in Blogger but you can also get unlimited storage in WordPress.
If you buy hosting with a good plan. Some plans do not have unlimited hosting and some have, so you can take any plan according to your needs.
In terms of support, here we can say that WordPress is very good because you get contact support from a lot of WordPress sites and you get a quick reply from there.
And you can also talk to your hosting provider if you face any problems.
But in the contact support that is available in Blogger, you do not get a reply so soon, but it is not that you will not be helped there.
In WordPress, you get the option of automatic backup. It either comes with your hosting plan or you can do it with the help of plugins etc. WordPress is the best in terms of backup.
But if we talk about Blogger, then here you have to manually backup. But its method is not too difficult, you can easily take a backup in blogger.
SEO i.e. Search Engine Optimization There is no doubt that WordPress is better. And this is the most important point for bloggers. Due to plugins, the work of SEO becomes easy in WordPress, which increases the chances of ranking.
But Blogger lags behind due to the absence of plugins option in Blogger, but again I will say that Blogger's site does not rank even like this. You just have to take care of everything.
