You need to keep in mind that a basic Google browse will show you virtually any web site featuring WordPress themes. The problem is a lot of them are over-used or ugly or out of date themes that don’t have the most recent advancements. You can see the difference all by yourself. If you have taken the first step on the way to a great business by using WordPress, pick a good WordPress template. Make success a lifestyle.
Having said all that, I can see a value in using both platforms for WordPress as well as Blogger – and have them all interlinking to each other – great SEO (as long as the topics are related).
But if you just want to get your feet wet as a blogger by sharing your content and making some money from your articles, there are plenty of other, zero-cost options for you as well. WordPress also has a hosting site where you can create your own blog on their site and never have to worry about your downloading software or getting it to work on your domain.
Some plugins will go with your blog files and content. But, for some blogs slight tweaking is necessary to make the new plugins to work. The tweaking should be done in content, files and data base. So, before tweaking and installing your new plugin, take the backup of your existing files and data base. Once you have installed the plugin and carried out the modifications, once again you should backup the files.
Now you will have to start building inbound links for each post you make. One of the better and fastest ways to achieve this is through the use of social networks. Subscribe to as many of these websites as you can and each and every time you make a new post place a link on each one of these sites. Doing this will help you in a couple of ways, first the major search engines love pages that have backlinks so you’re going to get traffic from the search engine, but you will also be generating traffic from the social bookmarking sites.
Templates can come in mini-site format, as well as WordPress themes. WordPress sites can help you rank on Google; however, as of late, they have not been ranking as well. Additionally, the wordpress platform is prone to spyware attacks since it is open source, and requires quite a bit of regular updating. But hey, if you have time on your hands, why not?
VPS hosting is a reliable and more affordable way to host your web site, but will be much more expensive then the cheapest WordPress hosting out there. Some small and limited VPS accounts can be obtained for as little as a month. And due to the partitioned server or virtual spaces, you will have an enhanced level of security and server speed.
