Blogger.com vs WordPress.com

So you must be having a Blog(If NO, Go get one today). Where do you host  it Blogger.com OR WordPress.com. Or if you have your own Hosting space with php and Mysql then for sure WordPress.org. This post will compare Blogger.com with WordPress.com. Also don’t get confused with WordPress.com and WordPress.org. WordPress.org is a CMS which you need to host and is the best Blog System currently. I will not be including features which are in both of them OR neither of them.

Feature

Blogger.com

WordPress.com

Customization with themes Yes, You can edit the HTML and CSS No
Import No, Only from another Blogspot Blog Yes, From most of the Blog programs
Static Page No Yes, As much as you want
Analytics/Stats No, But you may install a third party Analytics program Yes, In built and is great
Image Storage 1 GB, Can be browsed through Picasa 3 GB, Can be upgraded
Classification Through applying Labels Through applying Categories and Tags
Contact Forms No, But Third Party contact forms can be installed Yes, Using [contact-form]
Comments Simple, But you can install powerful comments system like Disqus Nice comment system but you can’t install Disqus
Embed Object (Like: Flash) Yes No
RSS Yes, And can be optimized with Feedburner Yes, But No Feedburner optimization
Spam Fighting No Akismet
Change blog URL Yes No
Javascript Yes, You can Add it here No
Google Webmaster Tools Yes, Verify using <meta> tag and Add blog/atom. No

Please See:

  • If you wish to upgrade to WordPress.org soon then go for WordPress.com. As it supports Categories as well as Tags(Which is common in WordPress.com and WordPress.org).
  • If you don’t wish to upgrade to WordPress.org and don’t want to host things then go for Blogger.com
  • Most of people start from platforms like WordPress.com or Blogger.com and move to WordPress.org(It includes me).
  • Also if you are newbie in Blogging go for Blogger.
  • Blogger is also owned by Google which is a 800 pound gorilla in Internet.
  • There is also a http://draft.blogger.com where you can see features if blogger about to come.

My Suggestion: Go for Blogger.com. As it has the biggest advantage that is Flexibility.
