When choosing a blogging platform to start your new blog, a blogger must consider which between WordPress and Blogspot is better and why?. Many comparisons have been made between the two best blogging platforms and today we are going to be making a review based on security – WordPress Vs Blogger – Which Is More Secured Against Hacking?
WordPress by far has more active users than any other platform in the world. WordPress took over from blogger, Tumblr and other blogging platforms due to unlimited access to great plugins and themes. I personally like WordPress for giving the blog owner full power and control over his blog.
To Start a WordPress blog is very easy all one needs to do is pay for hosting from one of the best/Affordable Hosting Providers and install WordPress.org file and that’s all. His blogging joining has just begun. As long as you have paid for enough bandwidth you are good to go.
Next step would be to install some free SEO plugins, optimize images, write posts with proper keywords usage, prevent spamming comments etc. This is an overview of everything about WordPress. It is just a click and installs platform that makes blogging really easy.
One of the oldest blogging platforms and also owned and managed by Google itself. Blogger.com or as popularly referred Blogspot is another great platform that is entirely FREE. Everything you will ever need to use in blogger is free and requires only your knowledge and ability.
You don’t get to install plugins just as you would do in WordPress. You would need to add everything to the blog HTML editor yourself. Most reviewers recommend Blogspot platform for beginners and persons who just want to write.
But on the bright side, Blogger can also be used by professionals who make millions from blogging yearly. A view at Nigerian blogs reveals that blogger.com hosts the best and most visited blogs in Nigeria especial Gossip and music blogs.
To create a blogger blog is very easy. All you need is a Gmail account (you can create free), visit blogger.com and create your blog. No need for hosting or paying any fees but if you wish you can purchase a cheap and affordable domain name for your blog.
