We'd treated Reasons Why should consider choosing WordPress site over Blogger's Blogspot site in our other post. It is obviously an interesting topic, a more controversial issue, a quiet confusing matter to fresh bloggers, amateurs (permit me, if I may say). No doubt about it, having above question lingering and troubling your mind is very normal for the starters. An perhaps, everything will be analyse in this post.
Its quiet arduous to conclude in this sort of topic as there are different opinions from different perspective. And perhaps to critically discuss this, one should have use both WordPress and Blogspot and define their features. However, this post focuses on the top reason why you should choose Blogspot over WordPress. Without wasting much of time, below are exceptional points to backing your choice of Blogspot site over Wordpress's:
Why Choose Blogspot over WordPress?
Amateur-Professional PlatformTo start with, Blogger/Blogspot provides a platform that anyone can handle without previous knowledge about coding . With Blogger, as an amateur or beginner, if you wish you may not touch it's HTML codes and you are good to go. Unlike WordPress, you may never be satisfied on your WordPress and even a self-host, you always want to panel bit one or two areas of the blog, setting up categories, creating templates for more features, headache of adding featured post, adding more plugins, inputting codes to head tags, setting featured image for post, etc. But with Blogger, your are always the only baby in the world.
Simple and FlexibleYet again, considering any setup you may wish to make yourself, "all things Blogger" are so simple and flexible. Blogger dashboard is very simple as well and very easy to understand unlike WordPress' s. Blogger hosts you, setting hosting datas are very much as simple as any hosting company may do for you staking some cool d$ll$r with "them service". Pointing a custom domain to Blogger is very easy, just a one time verification, and done forever. Templates are quiet easy to setup in just few clicks, easy and real time backup of content and design, to name a few. Wow! What else do you think about. Common, Blogger / Blogspot is number one in this aspect.
A Seconds BlogA seconds blog? Yes, I mean start blogging in a jiffy . It is only on Blogger / Blogspot you will create blog in a second, post the next second and you are good to go without touching anything else from initial one-two click setup. Instant blogging, my dear, isn't that nice to hearing?
Quick Adsense ApprovalWith a Blogspot site, Google Adsense Approval is rapid and faster than to any platform. That's a fact not even worth of any lengthy word to explain. Most WordPressers may even create a Blogspot site, get approval in less than a month sometimes and use that approved account to place ad on their so called WordPress website. Even, if your account is not yet approved, you can link your Blogger Adsense to another person's (trusted partner or one of your editors o admins) already existing Adsense account.
Quick Google IndexAnother area where Blogspotters has an edge over WordPressers is the fast Google Indexing. With Blogspot, Blogger automatically include your website for Indexing instantly. You will see something like " Your Blog Topic - blogger " in your search results, meaning that Indexing is prompted by Blogger Automated Indexing Suggestion to Google crawler. And you know the benefit of your website showing in Google search result? Ask Google. Lol!
One Blogger account, all Google productsThat's on a lighter mood anyway, now back to another reason why Blogspot is better than WordPress. With one Google Blogger account, you have access to all Google products. Your account are easily linked with each other, Google Plus, Google analytics, Google Adsense, Google search console, every-every with one Google account, no stress.
No Bandwidth limitationsWhat more can I say about this, Google host it. No limitation to bandwidth or space, use use and use till you get tired of using. Unlike WordPress, either self hosted or hosted on WordPress itself, you have one or two limitations in bandwidth or else you pay (yes pay) whopping doe for unlimited bandwidth and excuse me, it's just for a period of time when you shall pay again. That's not too Bad, anyway.
Free SSL, Highly Secured!What about that? It's sound interesting or lackadaisical to you? Well as it stands, with new Google advance features on Blogspot, free SSL certificate for all Blogspot, and WordPress just roll that out too. Anyway, in the aspect of security, Blogspot is 90% secured of hacking. So far your email and data are private to you, you do not upload plugins like WordPress, my friend your are 90% or so covered of hacking. No malicious breaking-in to your database which is not the case on WordPress. No plugins, no injection!
No plugins, no downtimeHere this comes again, you have no plugins to install unlike WordPress, you will definitely not face any downtime. In WordPress, there might be two plugins working against each other which might cause your website to go down or collapse totally. Meanwhile, the case is different with Blogspot/Blogger.
Easy customizationThat just it, easy configuration and fast customisation . That's only if you even want to touch anything on your blogger 'sef' (even). Choose different themes upon the only one you've chosen. You may not even write any code even a colour code/hex code, all are made up for you, just choose the best theme of colour and other advance configuration you may wish to implement.
Free Advance TemplatesJust in addition to the aforementioned, premium templates are online, meanwhile these premium templates are often released for free but with the clause that you leave credit link to them which is normal under Creative Common law of licensing. Unlike WordPress, you will be choked with several threat of getting a free version of premium templates known as themes to WordPressers.
Free foreverAnd before I put this article to sword, always remember that all these things we've being discussing for a while now is free for live. You can't compare Blogspot website functions of about two years ago to one created this year, there is always a room for advancement till eternity.
