Comparing Blogspot vs WordPress SEO
Blogger, since powered by Google, lets you give some advantage over WordPress Users. This advantage is not in terms of getting better Search Engine Ranking Positions, but the process of Indexing. Google favors all the Blogger blogs by Indexing the Blogger Posts much faster, I have seen posts on Google saying 15 Minutes ago. This is how Google treats Blogspot blogs, and if you write detailed and good content, then you will surely get the Google Love.
WordPress Users have to face Ranking issues in the beginning. If we talk about WordPress, then we need to do mostly extra effort in-spite 50% of WordPress CMS is already Search Engine Optimized. But WordPress has got a little bit of secrets, after knowing which you can rock over the Rankings.
Blogger vs WordPress : Making Money
Blogspot vs WordPress in terms of making money, huh!! Many of us have started blogging for money. But before making money, there are few things you should keep in mind. Blogger is not the Best Blogging Platform for making money, even though you can attach the Ads almost anywhere on your blog, its totally ineffective.
I can say, WordPress is the mostly used and best blogging platform for monetizing your blog, and its true. You can edit almost any file to have full control over your Ads. You can use the Plugins like Quick Adsense and others to inject your Ads almost anywhere. Creating and Managing Ads and Monetizing is not as easy in any other blogging platform then on WordPress.
Blogger vs WordPress : Customization
Well, there are millions of templates available for Blogger, and you can edit your template to get the desired look. So, its pretty easy to focus on Design as long as you want the visitors to like your blog. You can choose from billions of blogger templates and customize blogger design and templates.
The best option for Designers, is to use WordPress for there new blog. Blogger doesn’t allows you to perform something great on perspective of a Designer, so for making and getting into a well designed blog, WordPress is the most perfect solution. So, in the conclusion for blogspot vs wordPress over the design specs, WordPress wins.

Nice article, thanks for sharing. I like WordPress.
Yup, WordPress gives all the options that blogger doesn’t.
You are wrong Blogger is more customizable and there are plenty of things that can be done on Blogger but are impossible on WordPress..personally I use both; Blogger for personal blogs and WordPress for business
Oh, maybe you are right.
For novice bloggers– I guess Blogger is still rocking as a best blogging platform -reason being its simple, easy to use and write,good visibility in SERP (Google supports Blogger blogs)
For Intermediate and expert level bloggers -WordPress and Joomla as these are CMS based blogging platforms and come with lot of in-built SEO coding and techniques.
For professional bloggers -TypePad is also a very good option if you could spend around $15 per month to subscribe its sleek and smart blogging platform
That’s a nice review. I especially love wordpress rather than blogger. There are lots of disadvantages in blogger . So, that is why I don’t like it.
I am a big fan of wordpress platform because of high number of plugins and themes. All things could be handled just using plugins. And there will be plugins available for any kind of help. And the main thing is anyone can run it without any coding knowledge.
