Which To Use? WordPress? Blogger? Weebly?
Share on: 
fb share twitter share gplus share more share

Hi warriors. I'm going to be starting a blog and I was wondering if I could get some advice on the best platform to use please.

I know WordPress seems to be the most commonly used, however it seems kind of tricky and sluggish to use in its back office area. Blogger seems to be more user-friendly, but not as customizable. Weebly seems super easy to use and customizable, but perhaps a little basic (unless paid) and perhaps not as prominent.

Will it make any difference to the search engines which one I use (this is prob my most important question)? Do I have to install various plugins for SEO or pinging or submitting to directories, or edit HTML to make sure keywords are listed properly or "meta tagged" (?) or whatever, etc etc?

Essentially I'm looking to create a blog (or a perhaps a website and a "/blog" page) where I can upload content each day in my niche, so it's important that it looks professional and has all the right technical/background components correct so I can get ranked and liked etc. I'd also like to be able to customize it easily (eg add a lead capture box, social media buttons, video content etc) without paying web designers or buying a pricey editing program, so the more "drag n drop" it is, the better.

I know a bit about writing good copy, but not necessarily the technical bits-n-pieces of creating a blog/website, so I don't wanna use the wrong platform or miss something little-but-important that would make a big difference to maximizing my website's potential.

Any advice and recommendations of what to use and why, is most welcome and appreciated. Thanks in advance.

"Unless paid"? Well, don't use it unpaid!

I like Weebly very much, myself, and have sites there in their 4th successful year of hosting. They're a good and underrated host, in my opinion.

Blogger is just out of the question, if you want to own and control your own sites and not have them arbitrarily deleted in the night. Check out these threads at your leisure, and then forget Blogger ...
Blogger and deleted blogs?
Blogger blog removed
Squidoo/Blogger as primary website

No. With specific exceptions related to host-country-location, geotargeting and local searches, how well a site does for SEO isn't about where it's hosted.

Almost everyone else who replies will tell you to use self-hosted Wordpress - and they'll give good and valid reasons, too. It has a lot going for it. I don't use it myself (I prefer TypePad), but whatever you do, don't use Blogger or free Weebly sites if it's a serious business venture and you can afford hosting at Hostgator or somewhere (from about $5 per month, as I remember) .

I recommend you Wordpress, just get familiar with this and you will not regret, there are lots of tutorials

I don't like blogger because isn't SEO friendly althoght of course It can be tricked but isn't the same when it comes to an easy way. Others bad points for blogger is that isn't your site, maybe some day Google for some reason decide to close your site and you lose all, and you can't set up an static home page

The other platform you mention, not heard about, so It seems to me like It isn't a good option, at least for now

This does not exist yet.

Effective drag and drop costs money.

Professional design will cost money or a lot of your time.

Getting ranked has many more factors involved than just what is done on your website.

Installing wordpress on your own server will give you the most options - but it's not free (for the hosting and domain) and as easy as it is you will still face a learning curve for your own customization.

I recommend that you start with blogger first then you covert over to WordPress. Blogger really helps your ranking with Google. (no so much with any other search engine) I have made a few successful site by only using blogger, but in the end I always convert to WordPress because it has so many features. If you need any help with making a descant blog with WordPress or blogger ad me on Skype.

Platform of choice for me... Wordpress... self hosted not the free one... simple to set up, quick to edit content or change looks... can make it simple and clean or fancy if you want. If others (clients) want a site, this one is easy to manage and is easy for even the most technophobic person.

I don't think is a good idea to start with blogger to then having to switch to wordpress, takes time to get full falimiar with any of them so better starting with the best option, Wordpress

Free wordpress, blogger, weebly, hubpages, you can use them for link building purposes, they are good for this kind of stuffs but you shouldn't give all your effort on these sites to earn money, it would be good if you create your own site by purchasing a domain name and hosting.

webs.com makes it easy to build a blog, forum or membership site, I recommend it. Get my ebook to learn why membership site's bring in twice as much money as regular sites. Since you've given me the impression that you're a freebie seeker (like me!) Register a free domain at dot.tk and host it on 000webhost, then Install wordpress. But before you do that read this article by Lisa Irby and her experience with free sites, It truly shocked me how she lost 6 sites just like that!

I agree with you! We should invest our time and money on our own website to get benefit according to what we want and what we do.

I'll make another plug for WordPress. But, you simply must get your own hosting account and manually install wp or you will run into a whole slew of security/hacking risks.

Think of your main business website as the very "heart" of everything you do online. Why would you want to start at "free" and work your way up? This is where you should plow as much money as you can possibly afford to do it right...and then add a few more bucks from there.

THEN you will perfectly ripe for adding other blogs (blogger, free hosted wordpress, squidoo) to POINT to your main WordPress website/blog.

I'd still recommend wordpress, there are a few helpful plugins that will help with your SEO job. With blogger there is quite no great impact when it comes to SEO.

use wordpress.org (with your own domain). Your blogger blog can be terminated without notice. wordpress.com you can't post ads or things like that. Wordpress seems confusing at first, but after a month or so you will be glad you did. There are so many more options.

Wordpress is hands down the best long-term option.
If you install it on your own domain, there's almost nothing you can't do with it.
Plugins and widgets are invaluable, and the blogging format is easy to learn and use.

Blogger is more geared towards the beginner user. Its interface is simple to use and very straightforward While WordPress requires some time to adjust to its interface and platform. However, after you learn the ropes, it is easy to navigate.Both have their own features and it depend upon the user which he is going to use....

Wordpress is the best choice by far even if you are a beginner.

After setting up your WP blog, you can actually setup a Wordpress blog in just 10 minutes, you can start blogging in not time.

There are thousands of guides and resources available so you wont have any problem to start building a nice WP blog using all the latest and trendy WP plugins.

- Looking to install WordPress?
- Do you have problems installing or editing a theme?
- Is your WordPress version outdated and in need of an upgrade?

Go for Yola, ning or webs. com they provide valuable seo packages and the search results are also good when it comes to clicks and followers. Easy to maintain and themes are really awesome.

WordPress is really easy to use. You can make a simple site or a complex site depending on the theme and plug-ins you use. There are many WordPress help videos at YouTube check out the ones by WordPress 101. They key to WordPress is using a theme that is user friendly and allows you to customize without locking you into a certain format.

Why not use several, it is a valid method of building up your internet presence, using several different sources you can create a network that over all is more valuable working together than just one source working alone.

It's against Blogger TOS to try to move to the top with the use of off-page SEO. They might delete your site just because you backlink to another site of yours, or you backlink to it... Hence, not a good idea to use Blogger for serious business. Same is true for any other platform that has rules you don't create.

I voted for Wordpress. Why?
- It is self-hosted services, you host all your contents. it is within your reach.
- It is SEO friendly and Google friendly
- There are thousands of plugins to helps you to configure the functions
- just 'Googling' on what you want to achieve through wordpress plugins, then you can find a
lots of helpful articles and turtorial even videos
- For professional themes design, you might need to pay a bit. But some of the free theme is
beautifully design too.
Enjoy

Wordpress - better if you are using your own domain because the amount of free things you can get out of Wordpress that you can easily profit from is endless.

Blogger - ever since the recent Google updates blogger has been worse and worse for SEO ranking (google does not like it's own web2.0 for some reason).

Weebly - is awesome but normally used as a VERY good web2.0 to be a backlink to your website

Honestly your best bet is to spend money on a domain upload wordpress and learn how to manage Wordpress use Weebly as a web2.0 for your wordpress site....and just skip Blogger altogether. I hope this helps..

Wordpress, without a doubt! It's yours! The others can be tempting but they can be taken down without any reason, whenever! So, go for Wordpress!

Wordpress does it for me on my own hosting account. Wordpress is very popular amongst imers so you tend to find good stuff for wp on here.

Cheers,

Andrew

I suggest you to use "WordPress" because its so reliable & familiar with all the function and also its high Authorize and genuine sites. You can easily operate, manage and update it.

I know WordPress seems to be the most commonly used, however it seems kind of tricky and sluggish to use in its back office area. Blogger seems to be more user-friendly, but not as customizable. Weebly seems super easy to use and customizable, but perhaps a little basic (unless paid) and perhaps not as prominent.

Will it make any difference to the search engines which one I use (this is prob my most important question)? Do I have to install various plugins for SEO or pinging or submitting to directories, or edit HTML to make sure keywords are listed properly or &quot;meta tagged&quot; (?) or whatever, etc etc?

Essentially I'm looking to create a blog (or a perhaps a website and a &quot;/blog&quot; page) where I can upload content each day in my niche, so it's important that it looks professional and has all the right technical/background components correct so I can get ranked and liked etc. I'd also like to be able to customize it easily (eg add a lead capture box, social media buttons, video content etc) without paying web designers or buying a pricey editing program, so the more &quot;drag n drop&quot; it is, the better.

I know a bit about writing good copy, but not necessarily the technical bits-n-pieces of creating a blog/website, so I don't wanna use the wrong platform or miss something little-but-important that would make a big difference to maximizing my website's potential.

Any advice and recommendations of what to use and why, is most welcome and appreciated. Thanks in advance.
wordpress,blogger everything is fine but u have to maitain a proper way.

Wow....what a thread you started!

Here's my input....

The reason why self-hosted Wordpress is so popular is because:

1. The site belongs to you and is in your control

2. It is customizable

3. It makes people money

Good reasons!

Don't start with one then switch to another.....start with WP and master it!

All the best,

As others said Wordpress really is the best choice, I've used other platforms and none of them compare.

My vote goes to WordPress. Plethora of plugins makes it more intuitive and easy to use and manage.
