Problems of using blogger for lyrics website
There are some challenges in using blogger. Some of them are:
- If you are using blogger subdomain i.e. blogspot.com then it may take some time for the Google to crawl and index your site. This is because sites that are built using blogspot.com get indexed after long time.
- Another problem using blogger is the availability of limited number of themes or templates. In blogger you have to choose the theme or template out of the limited available themes provided by blogger. It is not possible to install your desired template or theme.
- Another major problem is the customization. Modifying the template or theme is bit difficult when compared to wordpress. To do some of the customizations in blogger you need to have the knowledge of website coding. Tha best part of choosing wordpress is you do not need to have the coding skills.
