More than a year ago when I started to blog, I hardly found out any other blogging platform then blogger. It was easy to use one could create a blog in about ten or fifteen minutes. Today after working on wordpress and blogger I have realized the pros and cons of both. Following are the ten things I hate about blogger.
1- You Can Not Import Data from Other Blogging Platforms
Blogger does not allow you to import data from any other blogging platforms like yahoo360, wordpress etc. So you can not switch from other platforms to blogger.
PS: There are applications using which you can import Blogger python scripts to any service you want but that is really time consuming unless a more user friendly way is provided by blogger.
2- Poor SEO
In blogger there is no place to add tags to your content while in wordpress you can add relevant tags by which people may search your content.
Adding tags separately deprecates the idea of adding more and more keywords in your content and the blogger can write quality content without having a concern about SEO.
3- Unprofessional Look
BlogSpot blogs look very unprofessional. Wordpress blogs no doubt look a lot more professional and attractive. Moreover I get irritated by with unprofessional widgets on the blog like fish tank.
4- Less Range Of Templates
Blogger templates are not available in a wide variety whereas other blogging platforms provide a huge amount of templates. Take an example of wordpress, wordpress.org has a huge amount of templates and all of them are available for free.
5- Irritating Navigation Bar on Top
The blogger Navigation bar on top of blogger blogs looks very unprofessional and irritating. You can remove the Nav bar but many of the people don’t know how to do that.
6- Commenting Back Is Very Typical
Commenting back is really typical. First you choose from a list how you want to comment back, sign-in and then enter the captcha. This is very time consuming. I realize that link love and spamming have become very common but facing such hardships while commenting back stops people from commenting often and draws a line between the author and the reader.
7- Less Range Of Widgets
Blogger Widgets are fewer than those of wordpress. Moreover wordpress has a single site wordpress.org where you can find all of its plugins whereas you have to search different websites for blogger plugins. Currently there are more than 14475 wordpress plugins available on their site.
8- Blogger Uses HTML and XML
You can easily find the difference between a blogger blog and a wordpress blog. Thanks to PHP, wordpress blogs are clean and attractive and give a professional look.
9- Problems While Uploading Data
Sometimes unusual errors are shown while uploading images, videos or even a complete blog post and some times maintenance is going on in blogger. This wastes the precious time of the bloggers.
10- Poor Customer Service
It is really difficult to get a solution to a problem from Google employees unless you Google it for hours whilst there are hundreds of developers working day and night to make Wordpress a better platform and their always present when asked for any technical help.
Will That Make Blogger The Worst?
Of Course not! Blogger still is the best choice for people who wish to give a free start to blogging. The vast advantages of Blogger can be read here Blogger VS Wordpress Comparison Chart. A good news for bloggers using BlogSpot is that this year they are planning to make a change and bring advancements to the blogger blogs.
