    I have always used blogger, but things are starting to get a little weird with blogs losing serp.

    I have never used wordpress, and am curious about what you guys think about these two.

    Let me know what you think!

    I actually like wordpress so much better because of the ability to customize things and there are many more plugins.

    There are some great SEO plugins such as All in 1 SEO pack. Stuff like that makes Wordpress very easy to optimize.

    Blogger you have very little control but it is great for a starting blogger.

    I personally would not say it is any harder to seo than blogger. However, the mere fact that blogger is owned by Google tends to make me believe that blogger is quicker to get indexed.

    .....which is the one and only reason that I have used them.

    But I really like the idea of being able to take advantage of the plug-ins that word press offers.

    Perhaps time for a change.

    Maybe I could start making wordpress blogs and link to them from my indexed blogger blogs.

    If you haven't seen this already, there is a great plug-in (wpSEO v2.5.1) that can be found in this thread:
