      1.       Blogger.com
      2.       Wordpress.com

·         Blogger is a google;s product and it is free for anyone who have a gmail account. It is made for the ease of users and it has very user friendly interface. Anyone can easily create a blog on blogger.

Advantages of using Blogger.

Blogger is free.
It is free for everyone how have a Google account, google provides free hosting alongwith blogspot free subdomain to all blogger users. An also  you are able to change and customize the design of your blog. You can add videos, images, and URL links according to your wish,google did not show ads with free account if you want to use google ads on your blog then google pays you for these ads.

Simple to use
Blogger’s interface is very simple and user friendly, a new person can understand it quickly, as my experience on blogger that you will know it’s usful features after spending few hours on it.

Easy google search indexing,


Because blogger is google’s own product so google take care of it and when you try to submit your blog on google search console (submission for google search)  google verify your blog made on blogger automatically.


Disadvantages of using Blogger.

No feedback to users,
Google did not have any seprate feedback system for blogger users, it just have a forum for them where you can question to other blogger users and they shre their experience related to the same problem these answers are some times just useless or unclear.

Blogger looks old fashioned
Unlike wordpress.com blogger did not have a homepage for your blog it just shows a feed page of your blog as homepage, and you did not able to do as many as you want customization to it’s front end looks almost similar in all responsive templates.

Customization in desgn and features

Because blogger has few customization in stock for design and features, you need to add HTML andCSS codes for them. It raises up the HTML file size of your blog that causes a SEO issue that is called Content to Code Ratio. You can only resolve this issue by increasing content size of your post.
