    I want to start a real blog about a field of my work, really not for making money purposes, but traffic from search is always welcomed.
    In terms of ranking quickly and ranking the best, is Blogger the best platform to use?
    I know I'd be limited in terms of designing the blog and such, but you can edit some things.

    Should I just go wordpress or try out blogger?

    I would suggest using wordpress.
    If you want to rank quickly then wordpress is the way to go.

    I thought Blogger actually would index/update faster, but the disadvantage would be less customization....

    If this is for long term then you should definitely use wordpress. Spend a little for a domain name and a host and you're good to go!

    Purely as a blog platform blogger is awesome.

    It is not as versatile a CMS as wordpress but my blogger blog has a 98 DA now that's not my work that's just the power of blogger. Likewise on average I have a PA of 34 not sure how that compares across the board but I have over 100 pages ranking for roughly 300 terms so all in all I'm happy with it.

    It is not as versatile as wordpress so it depends what your trying to achieve.

    Start with blogger and migrate to wordpress in future (if you want)
    I don't see many issues with using blogger! I recently checked my bloggers blog and there are lots of features from which you can optimize blogger the best way.

    I suggest you to go with "Word Press". This is easy to use and you can get free hosting!

    If you know how to setup site, have domain and also have hosting then go with wordpress... Other way use Blogger.

    +1 for wordpress the plugins alone are one of the best example of its advantage over blogger.

    Agree with the majority here. I chose Wordpress myself as my first blogging platform and liking it ever since.
