WORDPRESS vs WIX vs BLOGGER, Which one is the best to start with?

WORDPRESS vs WIX vs BLOGGER, Which one is the best to start with

“Grass is greener on the other-side” has been my experience exploring website development. I am sure most of us have confused ourselves often times in choosing the platform to start our wonderful blogging or business journey.

We often see a lot of Wix Ads, we often hear from our friends about Blogger and we most of the times end up on WordPress. So, I thought of giving you a walk through on which of these platforms you could use if you are new to building websites.

We will discussing and reviewing the features that make these platforms unique based on the following:

  • Ease of Use
  • Price/ Plan
  • End User Experience
  • Themes
  • SEO

Ease of use

Having worked on three platforms, i have learned that there is a significant difference in all three website building platforms. If you are new to website building, the first thing you would look for is easy to navigate.

When it comes to navigating the best and the easiest to use is the blogger, because of its simple layout and easy navigating panel anyone and everyone case easily browse through and also start working immediately.

The next best platform is wix.com the main reason is that everything in this website is editable, i.e . margins, content, look, feel. Which is a boon because it is fun to to adjust content on pages and give in the appeal the way we wish too., it also has its downside if you really new to website building you would not be very happy when you launch the website because the moment we make a lot of drag and pull changes on the layout, the standard dimensions change drastically and putting them back to normal becomes a hassle.

WordPress is the last in the list because it takes some time to get used to the entire navigation bar, and all the options in the same. Despite of its difficulty the end user experience once the site is launched is magnificent.

So the winner is!

END USER EXPERIENCE

By the end user experience i mean the appeal and the usability and performance of your website once live. It is very important that your website looks creative and appealing such that you can build confidence and actionable from your users or readers. This end user experience can be mapped by the performance of the website i.e. Page Loading Speed, Mobile Usability, Easy Navigation, Quick Links towards actionable.

The Blogger websites even though have the ease to use feature, it completely fails in terms of end user experience, there are no plugins that can be activated to add additional feature, looks very spammy, and is not very actionable as show below.

A WIX website is a little more appealing and does have a comparatively better end user experience, but the downside as a newbie in website development having excess access top adjustment in the widgets and layouts makes things very difficult, because here you need to adjust everything manually for both websites visible on desktops and the mobile version.

I have used it and it tensed me a lot, the funny thing is when you adjust the desktop version the mobile version of website just goes out of context. It’s a complete no for me! and because of which the end users see our site most of the time under construction!

WordPress is the best when it comes to the end user experience, for the following reasons. Firstly it has amazing free themes, which we will talk about shortly. Second it auto adjusts the for mobile visibility, The Third reason is that the performance of your website is always mind blowing.

So the winner is!

THEMES

This feature about websites, are most overlooked in the start. There is a saying in Hindi, “Jo dikhta hai, wo bikta hai.” which means whatever is visible is whatever that sells. So having a interactive and appealing theme options are always looked upon.So who does not like a good looking website? Huh?

Blogger websites has the worst or the lamest theme and web builder options, its just no wonder why google actually kept it for free. I would call it my practice partner, but would never engage in a real deal with blogger.com

WIX websites offer fairly decent theme, which is far better than the one’s in blogger.com. But are they the best? I doubt…that comes to our best pick!

WordPress websites are the best platforms, which have really nice themes even when they offer a free website. That’s a bonus. and you can find tonnes of designers themes that range from $0 to $60 (the best in the Niche) being designed every now and then.

So the winner is!

seo optimized websites

Blogger being a google product, has the best domain authority and often times can be easily integrated with google analytics and search console. But if you were to ask me, “Are they really SEO optimized?” My answer to this is “A BIG NO!”

It is because the website you make here are generally free and the bloggers community is itself huge, but not very effective in terms if you are planning to build as a business or as a public figure.

WIX website has an amazing SEO optimizing feature, the best part is that you don’t need any additional plugin to add your meta description or title description which is a cool feature, trust me compared to the next competitor . This is HUGE!

WordPress website is a winner in many and a loser in a lot, why i say this? It is because you cannot update a meta description even if you have purchased a premium account, Oh…right plugins? forget about it! you do not get the access to it until you upgrade it to a business plan, So in terms of SEO, WordPress is a loser!

So the winner is!
