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.
I've used both. Blogger is relatively simpler and easy to use but Wordpress is more dynamic and gives you greater flexibility. The SEO stuff should take care of itself if you have a good blog.
Blogger is built mainly for you to blog, so is Wordpress but with Wordpress, you can do so much more than just blogging and more functionality. Wordpress has been around for a long time now, so you can rely more on them.
Depends on why you are blogging. If you want to build a marketing machine that attracts visitors, converts them to leads and customers than you need a more robust platform like HubSpot otherwise if you are just blogging/writing for the sake of writing, Wordpress is your best option.
Blogger is much easier to set up and change. Wordpress is easier to customize and host on your own site. I use both platforms: Blogger for my personal blogs, and wordpress for my professional blogs and websites for clients.
Wordpress has the capability to become a "regular" website or be used for ecommerce when you are ready for that step. I don't know that Blogger has those capabilities.
I've never used blogger before, but currently use a wordpress site. It's fairly easy to install, and straight forward to maintain. Google uses a variety of methods to optimise it's ranking algorithms. Making sure you've got plenty of links to other sites, and that they link you can help to boost your rankings, along with keyword rich content that's well tagged. Good images, no empty links and no 'spam' filler pages will all help to contribute to your rankings.
None. If you had to choose from one, I'd say Wordpress.com. The best solution though is to get your own domain name and install wordpress on your own. You can control your blog better, do PROPER SEO and evolve from there.
Well, I would say both of them are effective platform ! You can't distinguish them in terms of their usability but if you talk in terms of Google then you must be aware that Blogger is a Google product and Google give weight to its product so it carries weigh but I would say as long as you keep the good work everything would be working great with Wordpress to which makes me giving my vote to Wordpress.
