    I've read on multiple threads that Blogger gets ranking boosts, just because Blogger is owned by Google. So why not use it for say micro niche sites?

    Boost in rankings, free hosting, I'm just confused on why not?

    Because Big G can disable your blog, if they think it isn't legit or something else. You have no garantee that your blogger blog will be online till the next minute.

    It is not SEO friendly, also they may take your site down any time. Why take a chance? ;)

    Afaik the whole theme is not converting very well, because everyone who comes to such sites knows exactly where the ads are and won't click on them.

    Na... I'm not agree with not SEO friendly, I have Total 500 Blogspot that make income $1.00 perday on a single blog. and google always fast when index for new update on blogger.

    You just need a little bit time with daily update on the Blog, then you can have your money.

    All of the hard work that you put into it can be wasted if they decide to take down your blog.

    You cannot promote clickbank products on blogger. They will disable it eventually. I've had 6 blogs disabled by google. Google only seems to want you promoting Amazon affiliates and adsense. You will starve doing this. After all the hard work in setting them up, posting content and promoting them only to have them disabled is a pure waste of time.

    I only use blogger for link juice. I wouldn't try to put any money making properties on it. I had a well ranking blog hosted by Blogger, and they disabled it under the assumption of bad activity. Mind you, I did only legit link building practices and all my content was fresh and unique. I'm either the target of my competition or Blogger messed up. Regardless, the fact that this property was removed is enough to turn me off of Blogger.

    Blogger does not getting preferential treatment from google with respect to ranking. You need to do SEO work on your blogger blogs as you would do other types of blogs like wordpress. To make your blogger blogs get good ranking and CTR from adsense, etc, you need to use a custom template. A custom template will have do-follow links and special placement of ads on your blogger blogs. In addition, the template would not use the default post description you find in blogger. A custom template would use SEO title and description for each post. That is how to succeed with blogger blogs.

    If google doesn't give preference to blogger, then please explain me this

    I searched for "weight loss" with quotes in google and added &start=990, all I see are blogspot.com extensions, as a matter of fact there are not live blogs and most of them are dead and note updated for 2 years, I know that is like thousandth rank or something. My question is only thousand websites are competing for this term? No.. There must be many more websites with these keyword which are alive, but may be not optimized that well. As you already know that blogger blogs does not come with lot of on page optimization.

    Why does google display them and considers relevant ahead of many other websites?

    If google gave preference to blogger, they would have been out of business by now.

    The fact that you saw blogger blogs in your search results does not mean blogger has preference above other sites. Google search ranking method is not perfect. That is why they change algorithm all the time.

    In addition, your test on just a keyword (weight loss) is not a ground to conclude that preference is given to blogger blogs. Do you know how many keywords people search for everyday? Millions. Before you make your conclussion, you would need to do the same search for thousands or even millions of keywords.
