This is the platform to design your free Blog owned by Google. In Blogger you have many different templates to configure your blog in a very simple way. If you prefer, and you have some basic programming skills, you can also make a free blog that is totally original. This tool allows you to edit CSS and HTML. Also, if you use Blogger.com for a Brand or business, you can change the subdomain they offer you by default and put one of your own.
Being owned by the big “G”, it is also SEO friendly. Although only for that reason, do not think that you will receive any extra or additional advantage in the positioning of your blog.
More audience and services:
Being a Google service, Blogger seamlessly connects to any of the other Brand products like Google plus, Drive, Gmail, Hangouts, etc.
That connection would allow you to both increase the diffusion of your content and the basic benefits of your blog. Also, you can show Google+ comments.
Advertising and monetization:
As I said in the previous point, this is a service of the search engine, so it will give you the possibility to monetize your platform thanks to another of its star products → Google AdSense (shows ads relevant to your readers or visitors).
While this platform is designed to make a blog for free, I have also been able to see some web pages created with Blogger. This tool is not my favorite to use in a business project, but in spite of it the option is available to whoever wants to do it.
With any of these previous platforms, and many others that I have not named today, we could have the possibility of having a better Internet presence (very simply and economically). Although I would like to point out that creating a free website or blogging over time will not be the most competitive option for our SME or entrepreneurs to stand out among their competitors.
