When it comes to a newbie, they always get confused in which platform they have to start their new blog. One of the most confusing topics is WordPress or Blogspot in which we have to select for blogging. Many users like Blogspot, because it’s free of cost and does not require any technical skills to start the blog in Blogspot. Many users like WordPress, because of its features, design, and flexibility.
Your blog should be very powerful, well designed and SEO friendly to make money with it. So here we will check the possibilities and quick comparison of Blogspot vs WordPress that have the capability to bring you success with money.
Blogspot or WordPress – Which is better???
Blogger or Blogspot is the most popular, widely used blogging platform owned by Google. Blogspot gives you ready to use setup which helps to start a new blog without any technical aspects. It takes very little time to setup and to create your posts. You don’t require any technical background to use blogger as its ready to use setup with free of cost. Blogger allows you to create multiple blogs with a single account.
Blogger is a fine-tuned service with very limited tools which allow you to perform only specified tasks. Blogger by default provides a limited set of templates to use. You can only modify color and layouts using the built-in tools which are not meet your needs. You cannot add additional features as your control is very limited.
There are so many limitations with the blogger in terms of functionalities, SEO benefits and customization. If you are a casual blogger, not blogging for money and wants to run a blog with zero cost, Blogspot is the correct choice.
WordPress is an open source software which allows you to create fully functional websites and mobile applications. It gives the full control on your website and can customize as you like.
We have the option either setting up a WordPress blog on the own server (self-hosting) or create a WordPress hosted blog at wordpress.com. WordPress offers a lot of themes, plug-ins and gadgets to customize your website to make it very powerful, well designed and SEO friendly. WordPress lets you create single user websites to multiple user websites managed by an administrator.
Setting up the WordPress blog is little tricky and require some efforts but WordPress community support system makes it simple. You can get help from WordPress users and developers from community forums.
Well designed and SEO friendly blogs gain more visitors. If you want to make your blog more popular and make money with it, prefer self-hosted WordPress blog.
I always suggest starting with free a wordpress.com for a month. Once you adapted WordPress tools, start a new blog on self-hosted WordPress platform.
