Wanna Move To Wordpress -- Pro Advice by Nobody: 2:17am On Jun 06, 2018
Hi,

I have a lifestyle blog on blogger but considering moving to WordPress now because people say its hard to rank in google with blogger. Is this true?

I don't get much traffic from search engines and rank for only a hand full of keywords though I write my posts with sea skills and keywords in mind. Someone said its cos I'm on blogger but the person was a webmaster so i thought he was just looking for a job. I've also heard of yeast seo that helps. Please, i need really good advice. Will moving my blog to wordress help me get traffic authomatically.

There's lots of traffice comeing form goggle but most of it seems to be of little value as if its bots. Search engine traffic is low and stuff.

do i move or is something else wrong?

Different strokes for different folks. Once heard and read blogger ranked better on Google but then what do I know. It's becoming competitive by the day and Op, ever thought of spending money on ads? I mean social media ads. Waiting for Google might take forever since there are plenty of older blogs in your niche. Just saying.

Hi,

I've been using Blogger for over 3 years now and I believe you can get as much traffic as you can get using WordPress if only you give more attention to the use of keywords and creating more hyperlinks within your Web pages.

I have over 4.8 Million views with a minimum of 30,000 views daily. I do Gospel Music and Motivational Audio download (that's a whole lot of traffic in a year and few months).

People with wealth of WordPress knowledge can discuss the advantage of moving.

For me, I will advice you stay with Blogger, pay more attention to what I mentioned above, Las Las you will be alright.


Good morning.

OP, it won't matter much if you don't have views. Google indexes pages with a lot of traffic quickly over those getting, say a couple thousand.

Your niche is heavily saturated and to make any impact these days, you need to drive visits mostly from social media. If you have a fb page with 50000+ likes and the users are active, any post you write and share to that platform will have higher visibility over the post on your blog.

So, i'd advice you to invest on social media ads. I'd take twitter over facebook though.

#peace

Moving to wordpress will not help you get traffic automatically, its not magic.

WordPress is good but it comes with responsibilities not just posting your updates, you need to always ensure your wordpress installation/plugins are up-to-date, secured, etc. Since majority use WordPress, it became a center of attractration for hackers and bruteforce.

+ A nulled theme installed on your WordPress by an "amateur webmaster" can get your website infected badly with malware which can force google to blacklist your website as potentially dangerous this will also hinder your growth. If you really want to move to WordPress, get a professional wordpress designer/specialist and ensure he uses a paid licensed theme from a genuine source.

But I'd suggest you grow a little with your current blogger (but you use a custom domain here) and when your growth exceeds blogger then you can move to WordPress.

My 2cents.

Let me offer a different view.

You will not make money from blogging in 2018 and beyond because the money isn't there. You will make money from :

a. employment as a programmer
b. e-commerce
c. developing and running applications

These three areas are growing very rapidly in Nigeria. Look in that direction and the gold will be yours.

Re: Wanna Move To Wordpress -- Pro Advice by delerx(m): 7:29am On Jun 06, 2018
This ranking of a thing almost imprisoned me until I started doing social media ads. As a pharmacist I was writing on things I encounter daily in the pharmacy but it didn't take me anywhere until I decided to be marketing my products online. Bros I joined a networking, do Facebook ads instagram ads which will take them to my blog. I have put adsense behind now cos I make money and meet clients online. I now do this ads for people which is not free
Re: Wanna Move To Wordpress -- Pro Advice by infogenius(m): 7:30am On Jun 06, 2018
It's so logical to give priority to what you own. Google loves blogger and will rank well if u do the right thing.
I will consider u search for competitive keywords ur market is searching for and write about them. As a rule of thumb, the less competition for buying keywords the better.
U can also run paid ads too

Re: Wanna Move To Wordpress -- Pro Advice by JeffreyJames(m): 7:41am On Jun 06, 2018
Wether you use blogger or WordPress, if your content is not worth it, you won't get any reasonable traffic.
Re: Wanna Move To Wordpress -- Pro Advice by Nobody: 7:41am On Jun 06, 2018
WordPress will not drive you traffic automatically..



But if you need to move from blogger to WordPress without losing RANKING/LINKS then contact me via efeobasuyi[at]gmail.com

Lol at nulled theme, how many of these Nigerian bloggers will pay $40-$60 for a WordPress template? When we charge them between 100-150k to design a blog, they think the money is going to our pockets. Most of them want premium service for peanuts, which is not iist possible.

See I don't have strength to type. If you do two things right now, it may be what gives you the biggest win you can ever imagine from blogging

1. Move to WordPress.

2. Integrate it with Steempress.io

I will not go into the details because I don't have the strength nor willingness to sound like a sugary-lipped salesman.

PS: Tosyne2much, you can corroborate if you ever come online.

This is the closest thing to a truth I have read on this thread. Except there is a way bit people are being too negative about it because they think making money is easy. Since you mentioned programming, have you heard of blockchain? SteemPress is built on it but the moment people hear of crypto, they run. Oh well.

You hit the nail on the head. Programming is hard and that is why people are scared. But making money is hard too.
Yes I have heard of blockchain. I am actually doing a tutorial to become conversant with it. However, there are numerous other ways to make money, real money from programming. Online payment and other financial apps, betting apps, educational apps, aggregators etc
There are many problems in Nigeria begging or digital solutions.
Re: Wanna Move To Wordpress -- Pro Advice by Innov8ve1: 8:37am On Jun 06, 2018
oboi if you have strong competition in the niche you are in and you aren't exploring proper use of keywords, just kickout the idea of blogging. it requires alot of work if you want traffic from search engines. if you want temporary traffic, you will have to build up your social media profile with ample number of followers.

Yes. I only brought that up because DApps (Decentralized Applications) built on blockchains are the future. I have tasted only one. Just one since December and what I have gained both knowledge and wallet-wise blew my mind. And I am not even a programmer! I missed laying my hand on my first $1000 paycheck because I couldn't code in Python. Go figure.
Re: Wanna Move To Wordpress -- Pro Advice by Speakdatruth: 8:45am On Jun 06, 2018
Whether blogger or WordPress it changes nothing, just work on your seo. IMO blogger is better, with all the plugins on WordPress is a joke.
