Select Blogspot or Wordpress?

Select Blogspot or Wordpress?


M-Blogger ID - Which one is better blogspot or wordpress? Are you confused want to choose which blog platform. Actually, the blog service providers very much, but this time I will only discuss the two biggest platforms namely blogspot and wordpress.

Note the points of comparison between blogger and wordpress that is below:

Editing Templates


I think for this one problem is superior bloggers because bloggers give a lot of flexibility to edit templates and layouts. In contrast to wordpress, first time trying I could not find a way to edit the style sheet from the template. It turned out to be disposable hosting and domain name for it. Lately it has been open for free manner, which utilizes a free domain name and free hosting service.

Tutorial Blog


Until now there are more tutorials for blogspot compared to wordpress. So for starters it would be easier to learn than the wordpress blogger. But some wordpress users who are accustomed to say that WordPress can be very easy. But still, to this point is more of a tutorial blogger.

The Amount Plugin


For business I see this one is still superior to the wordpress blogger. Even SEO plugins available on WordPress makes SEO can be very practical. In contrast to most of the bloggers who must play the SEO settings on EDIT HTML can be quite a headache.

Codes Used


Blogspot is built with HTML, XML, and CSS. It is a coding language that includes very easy. In contrast to wordpress also use PHP. So if you love the ease, then Blogger is a winner but for those who like creations are much more varied functions, then wordpress is the right choice. However, since people tend to master simple language such as HTML.

Variations Free Templates


Currently still more free templates for blogspot, because it makes blogspot template itself is very easy. Even many wordpress template that was adopted into the blogspot platform. It just needs to be noted here, simply because the free blogspot templates very much, does not mean we can changes template as often as possible.

Dashboard Display


For those who are just starting out again for blogging. I am dealing with a new dashboard from blogspo. It turned out that I was accustomed to faster and blogger dashboard navigation system. Means for the dashboard issue the winner is blogspot.

Change The Template


When comparing the two providers of this blog to change the template problem, obviously I still favor blogspot. WordPress should have hosting and a domain name first if you want to change the template. This indeed can be tricked by using a free host and free domain name. But still hosting a free book just to change the template feels troublesome. Not to mention totally free domain name is not SEO friendly.

Variations Widget


Nowadays more and more developers widget for bloggers, but the comparison between the widgets are created by its own blogspot compatibility outpacing the number of widgets for wordpress. But if I could honestly not too much wear widgets of all sorts. For some reason, the widget can be as much as it plays an important role when only a little. So who's the winner? Because if you talk to the problem of variation, then we talk numbers, thus the winner widgets for variation points still blogspot.

Features Comments


WordPress has many advantages here. In addition to moderated, comments can also be edited. In addition spamnya protection also has been known (although sometimes a bit loud). Wordpress comment form is also more visitor friendly. On the other hand Google only offers a course of moderation and captcha. So in comparison this time I chose, the winner is WordPress.

SEO Friendly


When viewed in terms of practicality, then I have to lift up for wordpress, because wordpress has a plugin for SEO needs. It should be recognized this plugin is very easy in onpage optimization process. In contrast to the blogspot which should play in edit HTML, and this could really confusing for beginners. So this time the winner is WordPress.

SERP (Search Engine Result Page) Rank


Many say here blogspot defeated. Really? All the same platform, webmasternya origin could hold a setting that meets the quality standards of Google. So to the problem is a result SERP draw.

Restrictions Comments


Blogspot can restrict comments only from users google account, Open ID, or even Anonymous. While WordPress does not know restrictions comments like this. So for this one feature is clear wordpress not my choice. My choice is still Blogspot.

Import Blog


Blogspot seems to acknowledge excellence wordpress here. Blogspot only accept imports from fellow blogspot blog. While wordpress is much more flexible. WordPress can receive import blog from Blogger, Yahoo! 360, LiveJournal and Movable Type and TypePad. So this time the winner is WordPress.

Video Storage Capacity Limits


As far as I blogspot provide video storage limit of 1GB, 3GB while giving wordpress. WordPress provides access to get more capacity if we do the upgrade. So the problem of video capacity is obvious the winner WordPress.

Picture Storage Capacity Limits


Google product menyedikan only image storage capacity of 1GB on Picasa Web Albums. For me this is very small capacity. Image storage capacity provided by its competitors still more fun, which is 3GB. This capacity can still be enlarged when doing an upgrade. Thus these points are also controlled by WordPress.

File Types That Can Be Uploaded


Blogger only allows the display of graphics to be uploaded as images and videos. In contrast with WordPress which also receive files ppt, pdf, doc, odt and. The file type can be added when performing an upgrade. For those of you who want to create a blog that also offer document, it may not be the best option blogspot. This point was won by Wordpress.

My personal opinion is still considered blogspot blog from blogger.com is a provider that better suit my needs. On the other hand blogger.com indeed provide a much-needed 3 things bloggers, namely: Flexibility template editing, Video Storage, and Image Storage. It is a gift of its own for millions of young people around the world who lack the budget to do their online activity.

On the other hand wordpress even has some advantages, such as its SEO plugin. So this blog providers also have their own fans. But again this is just my opinion of unilateral. If anyone has another opinion, may be shared here to help the beginner bloggers make a judgment.
