Thing to consider When Choosing a Blog

There are a number of things that you need to consider when choosing a blog – these ‘things’ are as follows:

  1. SEO – Search Engine Optimisation. You should make sure that your theme is SEO’d well – in terms of ability to add tags, accept trackbacks, include various incoming and outgoing links, include SEO plugins, include ad plugins such as for Google Adsense, has RSS Feeds. There are a number of free and paid SEO focused themes available.
  2. SEO – Blogger. When using Blogger, you should change the HTML to change the default ‘nofollow’ added to comments. ForWordPress, comments are ‘dofollow’.
  3. Design Customisation. Make sure that the theme you are considering has options that allow you to change the overall design – as far as color schemes and usage of own graphics like logos is concerned.
  4. Columns. Make sure that you wisely select the number of columns for your blog – once selected, it is difficult for a person to change such columns. There are 1, 2 or 3 column options. Look at the previews.
  5. Customisation – Blogger vs. WordPress. Blogger is much more easier to customize and more flexible as well as easy to maintain since it is a hosted platform – but offers fewer options. WordPress on the other hand is a bit more difficult to customize as it requires some HTML/CSS knowledge and know how although it has a large number of options and plugins.
  6. Monetisation – Blogger vs. WordPress. Blogger is easier to monetize – but you may find yourself limited to Google AdSense and the like. WordPress on the other hand is harder to configure for monetization but you have complete flexibility.
