I’ve used Blogger for 3 years, but now everyone tells me that WordPress is superior for SEO. After scouring many sites, I’ve been unable to find the SEO advantages to using Blogger – are there any?

  1. this was like asking a mcdonalds employee what the best fast food hamburger is and they tell you about how good the big mac is but when they are hungry they eat a whopper

  2. my most prominent question to Google Webmaster team is… WHEN BLOGGER IS GOING TO UPDATE … its template editing, post editing, its widgets… I think it should be updated to something new with fresh technology like Google is updating its other platforms including recent updates in Gmail, Gapps, and also Google console. …

  3. This is an informative video but something was left out: WordPress also has a self-hosting version which, like Blogger, is in the cloud and FREE for anyone to use. The video  is informative and helpful but a little misleading as it does not mention about the self-hosting WordPress version.

  4. Look dude, There is absolutely NO FACTUAL evidence that Google favors blogspot subdomains over any other. People have been passing around this bad information for years and it is simply NOT TRUE no matter how many excuses you come up with to try and support it.

  5. well duh because seos don't use them since if their site was to become successful they wouldn't actually own it or have much control thus making it almost worthless. That's why most sites hosted on blogspot are personal/spam related types. If you did a case study it will be a little bit easier to rank a blogger blog than say a fresh domain.

  6. And yet I never see many blogger blogs ranking highly when I search for something, unless it is a Google or You Tube blog.

    Actually , I rarely see them in the search results at all.

  7. It all goes down to what you do to better your SEO. Regardless if you're at blogger or WP, if your SEO efforts are crappy then it won't really make any difference. I have to say though… I've been a WordPress user for the longest of time.

  8. blogspot domains carry a high domain authority which plays a role in se ranking so you will get a higher ranking if your site is hosted on blogger.

  9. How to check and avoid plagiarism? Plagiarism Software is a free online plagerism checker for checking articles, essays and website content.

  10. I work as a web developer and I recorded a bunch of video tutorials for wordpress. It really is the best wordpress package ever created. visit my channel and watch the video I posted..

  11. for booth I recomend using Eaglestats online visitors analytics for example, to keep in touch in real-time with ur SEO work, BTW other analytics system INCLUDING Google Analytics are not really real-time!

  12. Hey, the moment I told my pals that I was going to go make cash online, they teased me. But later I showed them my profits. Go and Google Boom Cash Generator to discover how you can make money online.

  13. I agree that this was not an answer at all…

    I think blogger is good for a hobby blog or fun. Self hosted WordPress is for serious websites and is no doubt got great features and plugins that make SEO easy. Every top website I know has a self hosted WordPress site.

  14. I believe he sidestepped the question like a professional except that he did mention you have more control over links with WP. Being with Google he surely could not cut Blogger to pieces and not expect the wrath of those in the big office now could he?

  15. I am a wordpress expert and I recorded a series of video tutorials for wordpress. It really is the best wordpress package of 2013. please go to my channel to watch the one video I posted…

  16. If you want to create a great website, I think WordPress can give to you much more power.
    Ok, Blooger can't be hacked, but WordPress is way too powerful.
    This is my opinion.

  17. Have to agree, WordPress is awesome. Far superior to blogger, but it does come down to what the user is capable of doing and understanding, which is where you trade off features for simplicity with Blogger.

  18. No ambitious blogger should use The main reason I believe it is inferior to WordPress for SEO is because other webmasters don't take them as seriously. I'm not interested in linking to and from Blogger blogs, and I know that many other bloggers feel the same. Also Google control your blog and they can if they wish remove you or start charging you in the future.

  19. I was frustrated..
    (about ready to die actually LOL)
    chasing the "marketing method of the month"..
    Today's children might be looking at "holograms" of marketing messages from beams blasting out of their smart phones..
    While the methods of marketing and making money change..
    The principles are the same..
    Learn how to "reap the profits" of using "secret stealth" marketing methods..
    Combined with with timeless marketing wisdom that "inspires buyers to take action"..

  20. I think this is good enough answer…
    It's pretty obvious that Matt could not say WordPress is absolutely better or Blogger is absolutely better, because it will fall into prejudice and else. So I think he had made clever answer that "both are good in term of SEO" and next is only you that should get yourself focus in term of contents and links, that's it, that your job to care about — clear enough.
