I recently wrote an article comparing wordpress with blogger, from an ardent blogspot user’s point of view.
I got started blogging using blogger. I have tried using wordpress several times in the past, but things did not work out well. I got used to the speed at which a blogger site will load and that is the one thing a wordpress site can never match (in my experience).
For SEO, I find that using three- to four-word keywords work well with blogger.I also submitted my site to seoworkers.com and followed the recommendations given from the site’s free analysis.
As for the meta tags, I used a few words that was consistent with what my blog was about. I don’t think I used more than ten in meta keyword and meta description. As you can tell by the words I am using, I am not that adept with SEO.
I am not that concerned with my site’s SEO. I update content almost everyday. I am a copywriter, but I never optimized my content for SEO. I simply wrote whatever came to mind, polished it a bit by making it more human readable, then scheduled publishing with hootsuite.
My opinion is that the lines differentiating SEO from SMM are starting to blur in the coming years. What I am concentrating on instead is Conversion Rate Optimization, as this is where my copywriting skills come in handy.
I also installed intensedebate.com’s commentluv plugin. I “spam” commentluv blogs with my own comments (with links), and this is my way of giving back to the community. From an SEO perspective, i don’t think commentluv on my site doesn’t add much to improve its site ranking.
