Wordpress VS blogger +webhosts
« on: Sep 21, 2014 @ 12:13 AM »
I'm debating making the move from blogger to wordpress.org because I hear wordpress is better for SEO. Any thoughts there? Any web host recommendations if you do think that's wise?

I've heard wordpress is just better in general as far as freedom. I tried to make the switch once. But once I saw the "background" with the cpanel and all that, and I'm just lost. So I asked for a refund (literally 30 mins after I paid for it). They were nice and refunded. I just need to find somewhere to go to learn all that. If anyone has any links for that, I'd appreciate it!

Hi unwirklinch,

I see that this was posted a while back so I hope you've found a solution and are happy with the results.

There are many pros and cons from using a hosted service such as Blogger or WordPress. Keep in mind that WordPress.com and WordPress.org are two completely different things. WordPress.com is hosted (like blogger) and WordPress.org is when you  self-host WordPress with your own web host of your choosing.

I wouldn't say either of the two are better in terms of SEO (Search Engine Optimization). However, I would agree with jentyree and say that WordPress (hosted or self-hosted) is a lot better in terms of customization.

WHen it comes to SEO there's a lot of on-site and off-site optimization you must focus on. Saying one provider is better than the other really depends. Furthermore, if you use Blogger or WordPress.com and have a domain such as yourdomain.blogger.com or yourdomain.wordpress.com there isn't much SEO value to a subdomain such as those.

Going the self-hosted route is probably the best in terms of SEO. As mentioned before, you have more flexibility and can edit/configure your site's and files to be more "SEO friendly" rather than be restricted with what you can accomplish with Blogger and WordPress.com.

jentyree I understand your confusion when going the self-hosted route and then being told to access cPanel (control panel) to set up things. This is why Mommy Host auto-installs and sets up WordPress for our customers. We understand our customers aren't technical and don't want them to have to go through the hassle figuring things out, which is a bottleneck in getting started and ultimately leads to refunds for the web host.

unwirklich if you're still looking for a host or looking to move your site to another host don't hesitate to reach out to me and I'd be glad to give advice or help where needed.
