    Many of my friends prefer Blogger than to WordPress. Well, I ma the big WordPress lover and love to play with it. I find there are easy theme development and navigation is fantastic.

    Development of a website in WordPress is quite easier than in any other platform i have known yet. And the best part is, Google loves it!!

    No one will suit for wordpress, as it is just like adsense that never meets the criteria. I ask a question do you like to use any of these cms instead of wordpress?
    I am using Drupal, but it doesn't meet for blogging platform at all. The seo score is great in Drupal than wordpress that I can say blindly.
