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.

    Hi Ammar,

    I am pretty confused here, and thinking what to share or what not. Well, there are several points in your article on which I don’t agree with you. Even, I am a WordPress developer, and using it from the 0.7 version. But still, sometimes I prefer Blogger over WordPress.

    You have pinned down, less range of Themes. I must say, you should check out the internet there are variety of blogs & hubs that provide theme options. But I am agreed with your lesser options, and widgets. Blogger simply sucks at options, but I can understand as it is a free service so they have to keep it minimal.

    But again, you have mentioned that it comes with Poor SEO. Then I believe you are preferring WordPress just because of the meta tags? Because, there is nothing that we can’t implement in blogspot, and deep in the SEO industry. Big SEO experts still refer to Blogger for backlinking, and do you know why? Just because of the favorism by Google! ;-)

    By the Way! I liked the way you crafted your article. I hope I will reach you soon with something similar! ;-)

    • Ammar Ali says

      Glad to see you here, Hamza,

      Comparing both platform is really difficult work. Sometimes WordPress wins and sometimes blogger. Both of them are good, no doubt but WordPress provides more control over the website. We can use plugin to make the work easy.

  2. says

    Sometimes Google deletes your well ranked blog without any reason , That’s why I hate blogger .
    You are right , If your platform is blogger , you only depend on content , There is no facility that you can improve your on page SEO . Handling sitemap is another problem in blogspot .

  3. Khaja Moin says

    I agree with you but many bloggers who`re making money online are still relying on Blogger.
    What do you say? Did you ask them anytime?
    I really want to know.

  4. says

  5. assi says

    Ammar i am blogger i am not agree with you on some topics not professional looking lake of widgets etc there is a lot of widgets in blogger just edit the template……. But there is a big fact WP is better as compare to Blogger poor seo and there is always a fear that google may delete our blog so now i hate blogger and migrating to wordpress.

    • Ammar Ali says

      Thanks a bunch for sharing your views Assi, WordPress is better than blogger, but it needs more money for hosting. Which some people are not ready to spend :D

  6. says

    I do agree with you Ammar. Though this topic has been a controversial one, WordPress still makes noise. Assuming every blogger me too kicked the journey with blogger but later turned to WordPress as it gives more flexibility and customization chances. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Rohit Singh says

    I also migrated from Blogger to WordPress since 6 months. At first it is Difficult to understand and manage WordPress blog, but after some time it will be piece of cake.

    • Ammar Ali says

  10. Greg P says

    Hey Ammar. This is a VERY NICE article about the comparison of WordPress and Bloogger. I AGREE with you 110% and WordPress is where I have my own Blog. I would however like you help you out and simply ADD a Reason #8 to your list just to make it end on a round number (#8). Number #8 – WordPress is just a MUCH COOLER PLACE TO BE AND HAND OUT! EVERYONE that is REALLY COOL (and also wants to begin to be) is at WordPress. GREAT ARTICLE Ammar. Keep UP the GOOD work buddy! All the best to you. Greg P

    • Ammar Ali says

      Hi Gerg,

      I’m so glad to see you here. Welcome to my blog. You are right, Thanks for adding #8 point in this post.

      Have a good week ahead :D

  11. says

    Worth post for those who want to be Pro Bloggers.
    i will just say one reason to move to WordPress and that is most of the Pro blogger’s using WordPress for Blogging.

  12. Shivani Sharma says

    Ammar you have mentioned points well in this Article, and I just love it. I think you can also add some other points like WordPress is the world’s best CMS and most of the bloggers using this platform for blogging, this is also a great point.

  13. Oluwaseun Babajide says

    I agree with your article.

    WordPress is very easy to use, though I haven’t tried Blogger myself. A friend recently switched to WordPress and he is loving it so far!

    It is easy to use, and guess what? Almost over 70 per cent of bloggers are using it.

    Thanks again.

    WordPress is a great CMS platform to host your website on self-base. But unfortunately it is completely developed in PHP which is a high level web development language. Being a new user we can’t easily customize our WordPress blog by ourselves. There are many frameworks and premium themes available for WordPress blogs but, they are not free. We can only buy any of those Frameworks or a premium theme for our blog if we can afford. But if we are going to use a free theme then we will have to search it and install it by ourselves. Each and every WP theme has its own functionality and features. You will find the maximum customization options in every theme you apply to your blog. While we take a look on these things, It seems to be hard specially for a beginner.

    • Ammar Ali says

      There are many video tutorial available around to learn WordPress with ease. Just need to find them out.

  15. says

    Hey Amar nice Post. Just after reading your post, I exclaimed Thanks God I didn’t start with blogger !!!. I too have recommended many to directly start with WordPress.

    • Ammar Ali says

      If you are serious about blogging you should invest more money on improvement of the blog.

  16. says

    You are right Ammar.
    I’ve seen splendid changes to my blog when I migrated to WP from Blogger. WordPress sure let us have full control on our blog. Well put bro. Keep it up :)

  17. says

    Hey bro,
    You have raised key positive factors for wordpress. Personally, I never tried any other platform before and I don’t plan to. I won’t want to be limited in any way. WordPress is far better than any other cms you can mention. Though it requires high security attention, it’s worth going for.

    I encourage readers to let you help them migrate

    Have a splendid weekend

    Hi,
    I am not familiar with blogger. I use WordPress, and from a beginner point of view, I find it:
    *easy to use, every problem has a plugin to solve it !
    * WordPress themes are very flexible, you can make a website with it, not only a blog with as many pages as you want ( Home page, about, contact page,…) along with menus, widgets,….
    * you can manage all your comments, analytics, plugins,…. form one dashboard.

    • Ammar Ali says

      Before starting this blog I too used WordPress on free hosting and I also have good experience with blogspot. However WordPress is far better than blogspot.

  19. says

    You are totally right. But what happen if a blogger like me have no money to afford hosting and domain. I’m barely 9th grader so I only have cash but not credit card. Thank you for the post

  20. says

    Hey Ammar…
    Nice post. These are most common reason for leaving blogger. I have also old user of Blogger I switched my blog to WordPress last year.

  21. says

    Interesting post Ammar!

    Yes indeed, you gave all the reasons so well as to why we should move to WordPress, and I can well relate to that because earlier I had my blogs on Bloggers platform!

    Just as you mentioned the many reasons, I too was suggested that for professional purposes, a paid WordPress blog is the best, and so I switched and I am surely seeing the results.

    However, I have seen many friends I have on Bloggers also doing very well in terms of their rank and reach, and they swear by Bloggers. They don’t want to shift to WordPress! I wonder how and what they do, but they have none of the problems you mentioned. I guess they must be too good in knowing how to use Bloggers really well. :)

    Thanks for sharing this with us, and have a great weekend too. :)

      Awesome Harleena, Thanks for commenting. :)

      WordPress is more professional and provides lot more option, full control over the website.

    • Allan Nielsen says

      Harleena,

      They risk having their account suspended for breaching Google’s TOS, or whatever… this happened to some Blogger users, even top bloggers…

      I would prefer to own my blog, and be able to sell it (that’s why I stick with WP)

      @ Ammar, your migration service looks interesting, hope it sells well for you!

  22. says

    I consider wordpress because of more control, and better design options.

    Also comment system at blogger is not really good though.

    How ever their are certain other benefits of using bloggers or wordpress.

      • Sarah says

        I do agree with the above reasons, but i’ve seen many blogspot blogs, that was really designed well and even didn’t look like a free blogger platform on the first look. But WordPress is more handy and easy to customize if you don’t know much about web languages then WP is best, because it is easy to customize and the main benefit is, your destiny is in your hands. Because Google’s spam detection functions is really sucks in bloggger.
