7 Reasons Why You Should Move From Blogger To WordPress

No doubt, Blogspot / blogger is one of the best blogging platform for new bloggers.

But if you are going to take blogging seriously and as a business I’d recommend you Move From Blogger To WordPress Now.

There are few things I hate about blogspot.

  • Poor SEO
  • Less Control Over Blog
  • Comment Area sucks!
  • Unprofessional Look
  • Less Range Of Templates and Widgets
  • Poor Customer Service
  • and so on…

The easiest way to know what’s popular and what’s good is to see the number of users. Though, Goggle’s Blogger blogging platform has a pretty good base of users, they simply cannot compete with over 62,353,633 sites using WordPress.

That alone is fair enough to tell how amazing WordPress is but we are going to take this discussion a little deeper and show you exactly Why You SHOULD Move From Blogger To WordPress Now.

7 Reasons To Move From Blogger To WordPress


7 Reasons Why You Should Move From Blogger To WordPress

Choosing the best platform is tough decision specially for new bloggers. Most experience bloggers suggest us to use WordPress. It comes with lot of features. WordPress is the most powerful blogging platform.

I wonder, why WordPress is still free? 😉

If you’re still on blogspot or blogger. I’d recommend you to Move From Blogger To WordPress Now. You can also hire me to setup your new WordPress blog for FREE!

Why?

Here are few reasons why WordPress is best and you should move from blogger to wordpress today.

1. Better Design Options:

7 Reasons Why You Should Move From Blogger To WordPress

Blogger is just too much limited when it comes to design and has no chance against WordPress flexibility of allowing users to design a site from scratch and give it any shape they want without having to worry about anything.

Since, WordPress is clearly much more popular than Blogger, it is obvious that more designers are willing to work for WordPress sites which is why there are millions of stunning WordPress themes to choose from and they range from Business to Travel blogs, from Cooking to Gardening blogs and everything else you can think to blog about.

You can find tons of perfect, professional WordPress themes. Right now the top and best WordPress Theme club are;

  • Elegant Themes – Get 81+ Themes for 39$ 
  • ThemeJunkie – Premium Affordable Theme Provider

2. Better SEO:

Blogger uses one long page filled with HTML to do all things which makes it less SEO friendly even though it is managed by Google itself.

On the other hand, WordPress is best for SEO and there are no arguments, no doubts and no competitors. There is nothing better than WordPress if you want to rock the search engines and attract huge traffic from there. This is a really strong reason to Move From Blogger To WordPress Now.

SEOPressor is currently best SEO plugin for WordPress, You can easily on first page of google with ease.

 3. Easy to manage:

WordPress is totally easy to manage. You can do anything in split of a second and see the results that would be a lot better when compared to Blogger.

WordPress even allows you to manage and control as many sites as you want from one single dashboard and this is something that is not anywhere around in Blogger.

 4. Full control:

If you have a self hosted WordPress blog, there is nothing in this world that can cause your blog to be deleted except breaking the rules of hosting company which is extremely rare case since they give you a lot of flexibility and there are no limits and restrictions upon what kind of content or promotion strategies you are using. You are fully in control of the game here.

This is the main reason I recommend every blogger to Move From Blogger To WordPress as soon as possible.

 5. Faster loading:

As said before, Blogger uses only one long page of HTML for doing everything. This not only results in poor SEO, but it drastically decreases the loading time. In case of WordPress, your blog loads pretty smoothly by default. And, if you want to boost the speed, there are plugins to speed up WordPress,

6. Easy to sell:

Anyone who has real passion for blogging never wants to sell his blog, but there are conditions some time where you are left with choice, but to let your blog go in other hands.

Whenever such thing happens, you’ll have a hard time finding a person who is willing to buy a blog hosted at Blogger and that is because of many reasons. Like free hosting and limited options. At such point, WordPress is the best thing in the world you can have. You can sell a WordPress blog in matter of minutes, take money, spend it wherever you want and enjoy your hard work getting paid off.

7. Plugins for doing anything and everything:

Do you want to change your logo in Blogger?

Or you may consider changing the header? Or anything like that.

If so, get ready to have a brawl with HTML and dive into the codes. 😉

But what if you are at WordPress? You can get lot of plugins to manage blog if you Move From Blogger To WordPress. Just like the heading says, you can simply do anything and everything by installing a Plugin and there is no need at all to know any language.

Any way you have give me the nice tools for my wordpress site. Since i am a learner in wordpress sites. It will great to learn so many plugins quickely.

  2. says

    i say don’t spoil you blog to migrate from blogger to wordpress… we say it is easy but after migrating it is very hard to get you loose traffic… its better start your another blog in wordpress… and one more point blogger is more secure then wordpress…

  3. robert says

    I am thinking of switching from blogger to wordpress. I have so many errors in blogger that I can’t seem to fix. First off, I have 144 WC3 validation errors and I can’t get into the code to fix them. Also I have a www and non-www problem that I have tried to fix and nothing works. Nothing works for fixing the Duplicate Meta Descriptions and Duplicate Title Tags either. If anyone can tell me that I would have a better chance at fixing these things in wordpress, then I am in, really liked the article and the comments. Maybe I was a little green when I started this blog 8 Months a go, I thought since they were Google and ran the whole show they would have it all figured out. With all these errors I feel like I have bought a row boat with about a million leaks in it.

    p.s. the traffic is shit

    -thanks Robert

    I agree with everything you said Ammar. Just like i agree with every comment i have read. I blog at both blogspot and wordpress. So you know why i hold this view.

    One more great thing about wordpress is the fact that they help you to publish your posts to all your followers and friends including those on all the social media you have added to your blog. So, they even help you with traffic generation. That is really wonderfull. I always feel good when my facebook friends tell me they got an email for my posts. In blogspot you are on your own.

    Again, the fact that i can migrate to a self-hosted site is really great. That way i can have 100% control over my site. Great post Ammar !

  5. Mi Muba says

    But security wise there is no match of blogger with wordpress. Yes in rest of the features wordpress is far ahead of all its peers. You did full justice with the topic by covering its every aspect. Thanks

  6. Zaka Khan says

    indeed a great article. I started my blog on blogger but then realized that wordpress would be a better option for all the above explained reasons.

  7. Muhammad saleem says

    I also love wordpress but the thing which is restricting me to use wordpress is the hacking of wordpress is so easy and it very difficult to avoid even using lot of tircks together.

  8. says

    Everyone must agree that no CMS is as flexible as WordPress. Everything is handy. The ready made plugins and themes will make a blog look like pro blog without any coding knowledge.

    • Katherin says

      Yeah, i totally agree wp is the most convenient and advanced solution for blog running. However, I’m new to WordPress, I switched a month ago with CMS2CMS converter, but I already get used with this cms platform. Plugins solves every problem, also I get much more traffic that I had in Blogger. If somebody hesitate about the migration, I promise you you won’t regret it!

  9. says

    Well written Ammar.
    Wordpress is really a Best blogger platform, that everyone should move on. But I can’t agree more with some of the points you have shared above, If you are skilled, You can create any type of blog design. One interesting thing about WordPress blog is , it is really easy to sell. By the way, Nice post.
    Thanks,

  10. says

    That’s truly a great post Ammar! However, I am still confused over shifting to WordPress. The best part of having a blogger blog is that you just need a custom domain cause you can host it on Blogger. But for WordPress, you need to pay regularly for domain as well as hosting! If I could get some way of hosting a blog on WordPress for free, I am sure I would migrate ASAP 😉
    Thanks for the information :)

  11. says

    Well I cant agree with some of the points mentioned above like Design, Fast Loading etc as they are completely based on our skills. The #1 reason I prefer WordPress is, it got better SEO options when compared to Blogger.

  12. says

    When starting out with my Blog I tried Blogger first but just couldn’t get to grips with it and wasn’t happy with the design or ease of use.

    WordPress > Blogger

  13. says

    Great article Ammar! No doubt, WordPress is the best blogging platform. There are no plugins, no custom themes, no Thesis, no Genesis for blogger. Even I worked on blogger for almost 15 months. But later, WordPress worked magic for me!

  14. says

    The Article was good but Sorry to say I don’t fully Agree with it. I Agree WordPress has better options and control but this does not mean that you can’t get success If you are using blogspot, Yes it is a bit difficult on blogger than it is on WordPress but with Hard Work and proper optimization, Blogger can prove to be a great platform. (Example: MyBloggerTricks.com)

    Recently I moved one of my blogs to WordPress and after using WordPress for a few days, I realized that WordPress was good and Optimizing it was really easy (Thanks to Plugins, You can do tough jobs with ease) but it was a bit complicated (For New users). I had a hard time initially when using WordPress but slowly I became used to it. WordPress is great but only if you are aware of it. New People may find it difficult to use, They may make mistakes which can ruin their blog. So I recommend following proper guide for migrating from blogger to WordPress.

    My Main blog is still hosted on Blogger and Right Now I can’t think of migrating (Maybe in Future) but not now. This was my opinion :)

    Yes wordpress beats blogger on any given day. With plugins and all to support the wordpress platform I don’t think blogger will be anywhere near it.

  16. Pak Sid says

    Excellent article Ammar. Agreed that WordPress is far better than Blogger. I too started my blogging career with Blogspot but moved to WordPress few days ago. Feeling like a boss on WordPress :) The best thing I like about WordPress is its plugin powers that makes all your work easy and you don’t have to mess with codes.

  17. Peter S. says

    Nice Article Ammar! I totally agree with almost every reason except reason #1 :). There are tens of WordPress Theme Shops over the internet, each having an impressive number of themes to be displayed. One of my recent discoveries is http://winithemes.com/ offering more than 7000 Premium Themes and Templates.

  18. says

    Thanks for sharing, I run a blog for a year ago with blogspot blog. At the beginning of this year I decided to run one more blog with WordPress and did self host on my own hosting. I feel really great, every thing as you mention above.

  19. says

    1. Disagree. When talking about design, it all depends on your design skill. You can get the same design for both WordPress and Blogger.com.

    2. “Blogger uses one long page filled with HTML to do all things which makes it less SEO friendly even though it is managed by Google itself.”

    You argument has no proof. There are certain compatative keywords where blogger’s blog ranked better. For me, WordPress is better in term of flexibility to check your own page SEO. I use WordPress SEO by Yoast plugin and you can check whether the article has been optimized, on the fly. I guess SEO Pressor does the same thing.

    3. “WordPress even allows you to manage and control as many sites as you want from one single dashboard and this is something that is not anywhere around in Blogger.”

    Not too accurate. This is only when you enable WordPress Multisite or you use plugin such as WPManage.

    4. Couldn’t agree more 😀

    5. Depends. I found many WP blogs has poor performance. When talking about loading speed, it all depends on your hosting performance, cache, CDN. Since WP is more flexible, you can do sorts of things to optimize it.

    6. Not sure. But I think I agree with you. Most website on flippa are using WordPress I guess.

    7. Plugins can give bad impact if they are low quality. The amounts of plugins you use doesn’t matter much if they’re using best code standard but bad plugins are really a nightmare, they can also break your website.

    • says

      I totally agree with you Rudd. I’ve seen many blogs which are so good at design that it looks to be on WordPress but actually they are on Blogspot. So No matter what platform you are using, Skills make your blog look good.

  20. says

    Blogger has its own limitation and wordpress gives us a vast option for design…plugins….tools and more over it gives us full freedom for a successful blog life….
    And all your points was exactly perfect

  21. Koundeenya says

    No doubt! WP is amazingly the best platform to blog.

    But, I think, newbies should start from blogger, which will give them enough knowledge about blogging and possibly, html and other small codes too. Because, each one of them may not be able to afford a domain and a host to get started on WP from the very beginning days.

    Unsurprisingly, WordPress is the best CMS I’ve ever used. It’s simple, clean, easy-to-customize, provides great support, plugins, theme functionality and many more. Precisely, the best SEO-friendly CMS online.

    Thanks for the share.

  22. says

    But Blogger is always a good platform, easy to use, easy to manage and best thing is anyone can start posting within few minutes without investing any money.

  23. says

    Great tips shared with us!!
    Wordpress is gaining more demand than blogger as wordpress have better features. Also many plugins and and wordpress themes are available which attracts the bloggers more towards it.

  24. says

    Yes,Self Hosted WordPress Is So Better than blogger because i have full control of It and i can design better with a lot of open source plugins and themes.

  25. says

    Nice post ! I agree with all of the points mentioned here and they have been summed up nicely !
    What I like about WordPress is the preofessional design and flexibility to use plugins to get a blog that is suited for my individual needs.

  26. says

    The main Reason I switched to WordPress is because of the Themes. There are tons of Themes in WordPress and also support to the themes. Anyway, Enjoyed the post :)

  27. PrIyAnGsHu says

    WordPress is much more advanced and convenient to use, as compared to Blogger. Although, Blogger is a good platform to start off as it is not much costly (all we need is a domain) whereas WordPress requires you to have a web host and a top level domain, but without any doubt, WP provides us many awesome features and also does have tons of plugins, themes etc.

  28. says

    Hi Ammar,

    I think, you wrote this article especially for me. Because i am having more blogs using blogger.com. Here you mentioned the points about wordpress, is correct. I will try to use wordpress for my blogs. Thank you Ammar.
