    Hey I'm interested to know this too thanks for reading my mind and posting the thread. I wanted to make SEO'd pages to sell clickbank products and a big time marketer on this forum reccomended Wordpress, that was 2 yrs ago for the product google sniper (IE before Blogger was releasing WP style templates that were actually nice looking) Given what I just saw while searching today. I would have chosen WP 2 yrs ago but would go with BLogger now espescially if you're making 2-page mini sites, that way you don't have to pay monthly fees for hosting.

    Cheers

      The thing with blogger is you don't own it. At any time google can say they don't like it and shut your blog down. With wordpress you get the benefit of owning the site. No one can take it down, you own it. And, if you ever want to sell it you always have that option, you don't with blogger.

    If your new to WP it can be a bit tricky at first but I totally agree with the post about having control over your content. Hosting is really cheap and the Google monster can't take all of your hard work away. Best wishes

      It doesn't matter.

      Because even if they are (and some are), that isn't a reason for you to use it.

      The success of a site doesn't typically depend on where it's hosted. But whether it's safe and secure and will still be there a year later does depend on that. And that is a reason for you not to use it.

      Those Blogger sites that people are successful with would be just as successful if they were hosted somewhere else. Don't make the mistake of imagining, just because some people have successfully hosted there, that it was a sensible, necessary or advisable thing to do. They're just the lucky ones and there were thousands more who weren't so lucky. "Whole sight - or all the rest is desolation".

      You can read about plenty of Warriors' experiences with Blogger in all the many threads like this one.

      It's not the fact that Blogger is free that's the problem. Yola and Blinkweb and 000WebHost and Byethost are all free, too, but none of them has the same problems and drawbacks that Blogger (and Squidoo and HubPages) have.

      Don't imagine that "Google will prefer a Blogger site 'because Google owns Blogger'," or anything of this kind: that wishful thinking is for people (and there are plenty) who live in a dreamworld.

      Here you go - a careful read of this one thread is really all you need: Squidoo/Blogger as primary website

      But if you want more, these posts/threads may also help ("Blogger", "HubPages" and "Squidoo" are all the same in this regard - they're all unsafe and owned by someone else who changes the rules frequently and interprets them idiosyncratically and inconsistently and is in control of "your" site, which you can never own!) ...

          No, I wasn't, Ray. That was why I carefully specified "in this regard", with reference to the one specific comparative point I was making: they're undeniably both sites on which you can never own and fully control "your own" pages.

            I have been using blogger for a very long time and have never had a blog that was taken down. As long as you stick to the TOS, you will be fine (although that may be difficult to do for many of the marketers on this forum).

              With apologies for sounding so forthright about it, this just isn't so.

              This forum is full of people who've stuck to the TOS and had their sites removed without knowing what they've done wrong. (I'm one of them.)

              As you can see for yourself (if you're willing to look) from all the countless threads like this one and this one.

              Only earlier today, Alan said:-

              There are hundreds of posts like that, here. Unless you seriously imagine that all those people are confabulating, or have unaccountably breached the TOS without knowing about it, what you're saying simply isn't so.

              There are some people in that position, too. (I was one of them, too, until that suddenly and unexpectedly changed, as it has for so many Warriors). Their competitors perhaps haven't flagged their blogs yet? I hope it lasts out for you, Ray, but there's no reason to encourage other people to do the same precarious, unreliable and unnecessary thing. It's not even as if Blogger gives you any benefits that you couldn't get with an equally free blog on equally free hosting elsewhere.

              You think so? It's one thing to recount your own lucky run. It's quite another, with hundreds of people recounting the exact opposite, to inform people that "they'll be fine". You don't know that, at all. All we know for sure is that there's a panoply of evidence to the contrary.

        Extremely useful points, thanks Alexa - again. I've taken a look at all the links you posted, which added to my knowledge.

        I think most people by now, are aware that you know what you're talking about, and contribute enormously to the Forum.

        One little question though: You said, "And you don't even have to pay for either the software or the hosting." The software I follow, but you still have to fork out for a domain and hosting surely?

        Go on - educate me.

          Not so much.

          Free hosting (for Wordpress blogs, or whatever else you want to try) is available in places like 000WebHost, Byethost, and others. Good, well-established, reliable free hosts who don't put any advertising on your sites/pages.

          Byethost seems to be about the best. They promote their "paid hosting" by impressing people with the "free service" (and it isn't only a "time-limited free offer, or anything: you can use them for years, and I know people who do). The only downside I'm aware of is that they don't have C-panel per se (just some equivalent thing of their own). 000WebHost does have C-Panel, but I strongly suspect it isn't such a good or safe host as Byethost. If you can cope with installing Wordpress in such places, they're good. And free. And they'll give you a free subdomain to start on, until you can buy a domain-name.

          Also, Hostica is very well regarded, and charges only $1 per month (that's for one domain).

        Took the words right out of my mouth! This is a no-brainer and WP is by far and away the best option. I would even say that it is the best option, period. Not just vs. Blogger. This is IMO

    What you want is total control over your online assets, if you're willing to start an online business and make real money. Simply registering a free blog on Wordpress/Blogger won't cut it.

    Go get your domain, hosting and install your site on Wordpress. I'm using it successfully as my CMS (content management system).

    As you work more with your sites, you may find that sometimes you need to switch things around, tweak them for your needs or change something in your site according to the latest changes. (And things can change really fast in online business). With Wordpress, you have all the ability you need to quickly customize your site.

    Hello!I can say that both are very useful and very effective. But I think you should go for wordpress since it has plenty of advantages versus blogger. For one is the quality of contents and services of blogger is poor compared to wordpress'. Best of luck!

      What will rank your site higher has very little to do with a special template or plugin. It has EVERYTHING to do with the content that you put on the site and the relevance of the backlinks that are created to the site.

      Do not put garbage on it. Do not put posts that are under 1000 words. Do you use plugins like WP-Robot (which is a great plugin) on it so that you can get around creating content.

      Do not buy tons of crap backlinks. Read that again.

      Take your time, do the necessary work, and reap the rewards.

        I would do both honestly. I always like using a standalone WP install with All-In-One SEO or Platinum SEO pack... because I own and manage all of the content. I also have a ton more flexibility.

        That being said, blogger is good in its own way, and I would set it up sort of as a feeder into my main WP site. It doesn't really, really matter that it's no-follow I've found... link diversity is very important, and as long as you're not putting all your eggs in one basket, you'll be fine.

          In regards to indexing, you'll find your blog posts get indexed in 2 minutes if you manually tweet your post, as well as add it to Reddit and Stumbled Upon. You can also add it in your signature here, like I do.

          My posts usually get indexed straight away.

      Plugins I use (and you can find alternatives to those if you don't want to use these):

      All In One SEO Pack
      Google XML Sitemaps
      Akismet (to kill spam)
      Contact Form 7
      Wordpress Database Backup
      WP Super Cache

      I think these are essentials, but you can make a search on forums to see what other Warriors may say.

      There are also other plugins that can boost your results, both paid and free. Like the ones for social media shares, or search engine ranks.

      Other than the essential ones, I use different plugins for different ones. It all depends on what you'd like to do with your site. It's same with the themes for me.

      There's no requirement that you do anything. What my post was intended to do was to tell you how to successfully rank your site.

      Google wants quality. Quality. QUALITY!!! (Yes, I'm screaming that at the top of my lungs because 97% of the people at the WF don't believe it.)

      You can stick 250 words posts on your site all day long and Google will glance at them and then laugh as the spider moves to the next site. Google is looking for long posts and actions-over-time to rank your site.

      And WP-Robot is an auto-poster. It grabs stuff from all over the Internet and puts it on your site. DO NOT USE IT ON YOUR MONEY SITES. It's great to create second- and third-tier sites, though.

    Wordpress all day everyday because there are just endless upgrades, plugins, etc for Wordpress.

    If you're looking to get your blog indexed faster here's a trick my friend.

    Just ping it everyday for 3 days and tweet about it. Twitter is constantly being updated and Google spiders constantly check it so tweeting about your new site gets it noticed fastt.

    Your best bet is not to rely on third party sites and install your own Wordpress blog on a host and domain of your choosing. You don't own and are not in control of a blogger or wordpress.com blog and they can be deleted at any time by the site owners.

    Just be aware that Wordpress.com specifically states in its TOS:

    Blogs that violate our advertising policy or fall into one of the following categories are not allowed on WordPress.com:

    Affiliate marketing blogs: Blogs with the primary purpose of driving traffic to affiliate programs and get-rich-quick schemes (“Make six figures from home!!”, “20 easy steps to top profits!!”, etc). This includes multi-level marketing (MLM) blogs and pyramid schemes. To be clear, people writing their own original book, movie or game reviews and linking them to Amazon, or people linking to their own products on Etsy do NOT fall into this category.

    Both Platforms are Good and Effective it all depends on your individual terms of usage of any of this. Its all about what you want in the blog you are creating.

    Wordpress is more Advanced and manageable than Blogger but Blogger also has its own Good as it sure gets quick google indexes than Wordpress and if well optimized will rank higher than a Wordpress optimized the same way as the Blogger.

    But it all falls to what you want for your Blog,
    If you want to have a professional standard blog you can use Wordpress but if you want to create several Niche Blogs for adsense revenues or Backlink support to your main sites you can add Blogger Blogs to Your Collections and run Both Together.

    I Have been on Blogger for some years now and have always enjoyed using it as an added benefit to what i do online and i run several blogs on Blogger and also run a Blogger Blog Directory i built still with a Blogger Blog.
    So it all falls to what you want from Your Blogs. and just to take the scares of Blogger Out. Google don't pull down any Blogger Blog that does not Violates its Terms, and they give warnings and time for you to clarify with them and get Your Blog going.
    If You do it right you, You will always be in charge of it.

    I would go with self-hosted worpress site and use blogspot .com and wordpress . com for backlinking!
    But my own experience is that wordpress . com ranks better!

    Blogger isnt bad as a free choice. It is a good choice for those who want to experiment and still have to learn about programming. I have two blogger sites for several months and they are ranking well in google but not in other SEs

    Self-hosted version of WordPress for maximum flexibility (plugins) and control, and more than one website.

    If you only want one website, with little flexibility and control, then blogger is fine.

      Two popular free blogging platforms are Blogger and Wordpress. I think WordPressis a more powerful blogging platform. I consider WordPress to be nicer and more powerful than Blogger. You can also find better templates for WordPress than you can for Blogger.
      Blogger is a free service, and is hosted by Google, no less. Unfortunately, that also means the search engine giant has a say in the kinds of content you get to post. If you've taken the time to read through their Terms of Service, you'll find that Google can remove or refuse to publish your content anytime and for any reason they see fit.
      WordPress, you're the only one who's entirely in control of your blog and the types of content you put in it. The fact that your blog and its contents cannot be deleted without your permission is also a big plus to bloggers looking to exercise their right to free speech and creative expression.

    What are some PROS and CONS between blogger and wordpress?
    I don't think you can install plugins on wordpress.com-hosted blogs, only on self-hosted ones. Can you do it with blogger??

    WP all the way. If you ever wanted to turn your site into more than a blog WP is the answer. you can automate so many features and build lists with basic plugins!

    Word presss is better than blogger.
    there are alot of free plugins in word press. for seo purpose "All in One SEO and YOAST plugins works the best"
    I suggest you to buy a domain for your blog as Google do not give priority to free blogs.
