Blogger vs WordPress – introduction


Before comparing Blogger and WordPress, tell us about it.


What is Blogger


Blogger it is a Google product, through which any blogger can create an attractive blog.  In Blogger, the domain name and hosting are provided by Google, which remains free.


Blogger can use this blogging platform for free as long as he wants.  In Blogger , you get a subdomain, which is something like this – samuras.blogspot.com

What is WordPress


WordPress is a popular content management system, with which bloggers can create any type of blog or website, and it is the largest content management system in the world.  According to one report, more than 75 million websites around the world have been created on WordPress.


To create your blog on WordPress, you need a domain and hosting.  Without the domain and hosting, you cannot create your blog on WordPress.  With the help of WordPress, you can create many different types of websites apart from a blog, such as a business website, an eCommerce store, an affiliate website, etc.


WordPress is the first choice of most bloggers for blogging due to the presence of unlimited plugins in it, with the help of which bloggers can give their blog an attractive look.


If you are thinking about creating a WordPress blog, Hostinger is the best hosting provider that provides hosting at very affordable prices.  If you select Hostinger's Premium Plan, you will also get a domain name for free with hosting, saving your domain money.  Besides, offers continue to work from time to time at Hostinger, where you get a bigger discount on hosting.


Comparison between Blogger and WordPress


Let's compare Blogger and WordPress in 10 main topics so that you can easily figure out which blogging system is better.


1 – Invest (how much will it cost)


When we think about doing something, the first thing that comes into it is to invest money, because unless we benefit from something, we think a lot before investing money in it.


Blogger – if you are serious about blogging and don't have enough money to invest or don't want to invest at first, you can create a free blog at Blogger. in this, you get a free subdomain and free lifetime hosting for free.


WordPress – on the other hand, speaking of WordPress, in this, you need to use a domain name and good web hosting.  Which cost about $ 50 per year.  And if you want to buy a premium plugin and theme, it will cost about 8-10 $.


If you don't have enough money to invest at first, you can start your blogging journey from Blogger.


Winner – Blogger


2 – ranking (who ranks better)


Surely this question comes to everyone's mind about which one ranks better and faster in Blogger and WordPress because the purpose of writing a blog is to get your blog ranked in Google and bring traffic to it. Let's also find out the answer to this : 


Blogger – as far as my experience is concerned, if I had written an SEO-friendly article, the blog created on Blogger they are quickly classified. The main reason for this is that Blogger it is a Google product and is already optimized for SEO and fits quickly with Search Console and Analytics, so it can rank quickly if it works well.


WordPress – if you are just learning to blog, it will take some time to rank a WordPress-based website, because SEO has to be done on its own, and a new blogger does not have much SEO knowledge. So it will take some time to rank a WordPress blog compared to Blogger. if you have a good knowledge of SEO, WordPress sites are also ranked quickly.


Winner – Blogger


3 – features (which have good features)


Blogger – very few features are available in Blogger, everything is limited here.  Blogger cannot pre-customize the website, and no plugin and advanced theme are available in Blogger, which makes the blog more attractive.  Not many customizations are available in themes Blogger.


WordPress – in terms of features, WordPress is great compared to Blogger, and this is what makes WordPress so special.  Here you get a lot of plugins, through which you can take a very professional look at your website, and you can do SEO for the site.  Apart from that, unlimited themes are available with which you can make the website more attractive.


Winner – WordPress


4 – technical problem (which is a more technical problem)


Blogger – technical problems in Blogger are negligible, to clarify my point, so far I have never encountered any technical problem in Blogger at all.  It's always uptime and there are no hassles of a malfunctioning server.


WordPress – since WordPress is a self-hosted blog, there is a bigger technical problem in it, sometimes there is a hosting problem and sometimes if the wrong plugin is installed, the problem will appear.  A little technical knowledge is required for WordPress.


 Winner – Blogger


5 – coding knowledge (what coding knowledge should be)


Blogger – Blogger should have some knowledge about coding, as in Theme Customize, if there are additional things that will be added to the website, such as – a content table, author box, etc.  So you should also know the coding.


WordPress – no coding knowledge is required in WordPress, you can customize the theme with the help of Simply Drag and Drop.  If you want to add anything extra, there are many additional components for this.


Winner – WordPress


6 – security (who is safer)


Blogger – since Blogger is logged in using only your Gmail ID, in such a case, if your Gmail ID is hacked, our Blogger website can also be hacked.  If the Gmail ID is not hacked, then the Blogger site is very difficult to hack, because Google's security is at a very high level.


WordPress – since WordPress is the largest content management system in the world, attacks are also very high in it.  You can make your WordPress site secure by using the WordPress plugin.  If you make a mistake somewhere, your WordPress site can also be hacked.


The winner – no one, decide and tell in the comment


7 – ownership (who will control the blog)


Blogger – Google has full control over Blogger, if you accidentally put a post that does not follow the Google GuideLine, Google can block your website without any notice. We don't have full control over Blogger.


WordPress – at WordPress we have a self-hosted blog. It's completely under your control. If you place such content on your blog contrary to Google's guidelines, Google gives you notice so that you can remove such content from the blog.


Winner – WordPress


8 – time consumption (which takes more time to customize)


Blogger – customizing the theme takes a long time in Blogger, and organizing the theme takes about 2 to 3 hours. It also takes some time to do SEO for the article. In general, being a blogger is time-consuming.


WordPress – customizing WordPress takes very little time, using drag and drop, you can fully customize the theme in less than an hour.SEO optimization of the article is also easy to perform. In WordPress, you get many SEO plugins such as Yoast SEO, Rank Math, All in SEO, etc.


Winner – WordPress


9 – easy to use (who is easy to use)


Blogger – Blogger is very easy to use, there is no technical problem with it, and do not worry about Server Down, its interface is also very easy, and anyone can learn to blog very quickly in it.


WordPress – using WordPress is not easy compared to Blogger, WordPress requires little technical knowledge.


Winner – Blogger


10 – support (who gets good support)


Blogger – there is no support of any kind, all the shortcomings will have to be removed by themselves.


WordPress – full support is provided by the hosting company in WordPress.


Winner – WordPress


My Opinion of Blogger vs WordPress


Compared to Blogger vs WordPress, in some cases, WordPress proves to be better than Blogger and in some cases, Blogger proves to be better.


But if you are completely new to blogging, then for me, you should start with the blogger.  And when you learn a little about blogging, you should convert your blog to WordPress.  Because every blogger has to go to WordPress one day or another.


Speaking of myself, I also started my blogging journey in 2016 from Blogger itself.  I have also started this blog samuras.site from the blogger himself.


Conclusion: Blogger and WordPress
