    I am going to start a new blog for my real estate business, my current website isn't ranking too hot and i want to get a blog going to try to get more exposure for my listings and pick up new listings by gaining the attention of home owners

    Would you all recommend I go with Blogger or Wordpress?

    My initial thought was to get one or the other and put my content on and buy some xrummer blasts

    Thoughts on which of the two would be better?

    Thanks all, love this place and the knowledge I constantly gain!

    Wordpress is Best , Blogger has some limitation which wordpress do not have. as wordpress is hosted with you . and you can do as want you want. even there may be more chance to Ban if you use blackhat on it , compare with wordpress.

    WORDPRESS is Best

    Thanks for your response

    Then once I get a wordpress, would xrummer be the best bet to get my SERP's increased?

    Wordpress is a good choice. Unfortunately, it is a bit strict when it comes to ruling when compared to Blogger.

    I use both Wordpress and blogger.

    My main sites are on Wordpress and my feeders are on Blogger.
    Blogger is an authority domain, so if you can have some link juice from there it will benefit you.

    This is what i do:
    I build my money making blogfarm on wordpress like this
    Black-dogs.com
    Blue-digs.com
    White-dogs.com
    Female-dogs.com
    etc
    etc

    Then i make 1 blogger site and just call it something dogs.
    Next i use a tool which you can find in the forum here called, "autoblog Samurai", which auto post content and rss feeds to blogger accounts.
    I take then the rss feed from my wordpress sites:
    Black-dogs.com
    Blue-digs.com
    White-dogs.com
    Female-dogs.com
    And feed them into "autoblog Samurai", with setting to update the blogger every 6 hours or so. You should also use the feature of "autoblog Samurai", and add Amazon, Clickbank and other articles so it is not only your feed.

    Now in "autoblog Samurai", you can specify keywords that should be hyperlinked. So you now add all your keywords from the money making sites and deep link them them back to the wordpress money sites.

    You can also go a step further and start promoting the RSS feeds from your blgger site and do some bookmarking to add more weight to the blogger site.

    The more linking the better.

    Wordpress self hosted is great if you have the right plugins and theme design with a well optimized and monetized theme design, you cant go wrong

    I'm a huge WP fan. I want Google out of my business as much as possible, so I stay away from Blogger...

    You can do much more with Wordpress Blogs...if you are just wanting to get the word out there about your business...Blogger might be the best route. You are kind of on your own with wordpress....I have always looked at blogger users want to keep it pretty simple and wordpress users usually grow their blogs into full websites and what not...the plugins for wordpress are pretty sick too!

    for business type things - feel like wordpress is going to give you a more appealing site

    blogger is just a second rate platform for businesses imo.

    Use Wordpress, and be sure to us a host with a one click install; saves a ton of time.
