Blogger or Wordpress?
I want to start a blog. What are your suggestions for the right platform to do this? I am looking for the most effective platform in terms of search engine (Google) to rank high fast. Blogger or Wordpress? Or any other suggestions?
Choosing one between Blogger and WordPress is quite tricky job as both of them are quite splendid platforms for creating blogs. However, if your expectations are much more than merely having a blog then WP would be the suitable choice for you. I think you should refer to http://getnulledscript.com/use-wordpress-blogging/ to know about the reasons why you should opt for WordPress as your blogging platform.
Blogger is great for niche sites which are based around content and affiliate links.
I'd avoid free Wordpress as you are not allowed to monetise it.
Hosted Wordpress is fantastic if you want options. Because there are so many companies and people who make themes and plugins for Wordpress, the customisation options are almost limitless. Whether you want to do a directory, ecommerce, blog or something completely different, Wordpress offers the capabilities.
Both platforms are probably suitable for general SEO compatibility, but without an accompanying strategy to broadcast the blog content, or links to it, you will have a case of "If you blog it, they won't come". Will you post popular articles other than your own to build link value? Will you offer your blog content through an RSS feed or into a specific community and promote sharing of it? Build a Facebook site and announce each new blog; post a comment to a LinkedIn group discussion with a link to a larger, relevant blog article; if your content lends itself to images, put one in your blog then link post the photo with a blog link to Pinterest, etc. I'm a regular blog contributor to my company's web site, but I've found multiple the views if I make a comment in a group discussion thread (like this one).
Without a doubt WordPress is the best choice. It is the Rolls Royce of blogging platforms. Here are a brief list of its outstanding features and advantages.
-1- Continual free updates (at least twice per year)
-2- Huge inventory of free plugins (10,000-15,000) that add specific functionality of your choosing. Very good SEO plugins
-3- Developers are very responsive to user input
-4- Huge user base (at least 20% of all blogs)
-5 On a very solid financial footing (no fears of dissipation or disappearance).
-6- Choice of online hosting at WordPress.com or self-hosting through WordPress.org
(download software and upload to your web host). If you have commercial intent, the second choice is definitely better.
-7- The automated nature of plugin update notifications and installation is amazing.
-8- The media library capability is astounding.

Best of success,
Wordpress has way more user interface functionality that Blogger, however if your not that code heavy, you might want to go with blogger. Both have SEO capabilities and are easily search-able.
Both works Good. But for search engine friendly i prefer blogger if you start promoting your blog in google because it is own by them. And when you consider user friendly and to grab more customers and easy to customize the things, then probably wordpress would be the great. Choice is yours.
I’ve only used Wordpress so I would start there. Once you get the handle of it I would work on getting your own site up and running.
Wordpress is the best Platform for Beginners and Experts too :)
I would strongly recommend you wordpress as it has numbers of free themes to decorate your blog depending on your profession. It also has many interesting plugins to support your seo and others to add some toppings on your blog.
You can simply book a domain and host wordpress blog all by yourself, Many domain providing companies such as go daddy and big rock provide you cpanel that is well equipped with wordpress and other tools.
