    I don't understand why you are asking....you've used both tools....

    but in my opinion, .... well, I just go to the blogging section of the forum and look at all the threads with people asking for WP help

    Wordpress is much easier to customize and has many advanced options. Beginners stick with Blogger.

    Both has advantage and disadvantage, but it's not related to PR or SEO. So why we bothered, they both free.

    Are you referring to Word Press.com or .org (self hosted)? That makes a world of difference. Blogger is much better because it offers more freedom and allows you to add just about anything when you are talking about the free platforms.

    If you are talking about self-hosted Word press, there is no comparison. You can tweak and add so much that your head would spin. It is much easier to do proper SEO even if you have no clue what you are doing. A simple plug in can do almost all your on site SEO.

    Professionally, self-hosted blogs are more respected and you can freely sell them unlike the free platforms.

    I have to say, I am a bit surprised that someone with as many posts as you would ask this question. This must has been asked a few times a month since I have been at DP. This is a newbie question!

    With a self hosted Wordpress blog you have control over the asset you have created. Nothing wrong with Blogger as a free platform other than the fact you don't have *ultimate* control over your site.

    Wordpress with your own hosting definitely.

    None of the top bloggers in the world use blogger platform.

    You need your own domain name to create an identity/brand for your blog and it is much more professional.

    What about labnol.blogspot.com?

    With Google's servers you should be able to handle a Digg storm. :)

    I would totally suggest wordpress, as long as you are hosting your own. for the ones the companies host I could not recommend either as I don't think that is a good way to go for PR, and functionality - however I really have not done any parallel tests.

    PM me if your interested in setting up your own I'm currently building a product that I will need some beta testers on that one module includes blogs/wordpress setup.

    The Guardian newspaper recently ran a competiton for best British blog... and ScaryDuck won, which is hosted as a sub domain on blogger. It obviously won because of the quality of the content and traffic, which is what successful blogging is all about.

    All I seem to hear these days is... Wordpress is much more professional and Blogger hosted blogs can't be taken seriously! What a load of cr@p. This is always the thoughts of fellow bloggers and webmasters who are competing for traffic. It is the people that read the blogs that matter, they don't care where it is hosted and they don't care what software platform is used.

    They simply look for information and base their thoughts on the quality of the content itself. They usually find these pages through search engines; do you think they actually decide not to visit one of the top ranked blogs, cos it has the name blogger in it? Don't think so.

    Google bought Blogger cos it's efficient. The server is reliable, never seen it go down. The ease in design is again efficient, so you can quickly do the the important thing... and publish content! If a Blogger page has a high PageRank, thousands of backlinks and thousands of unique daily visits... certain people would still put the blog down... it really baffles me why people continue to pull the Wordpress is superior card, because at the end of the day, it means absolutely diddly squat. Everyday readers and search engines care about content alone and that's what will determine the success of any such blog. This thread topic holds no weight whatsoever.

    Cheers.
