Having a hard time choosing the best blog engine for your blog? “Should I use wordpress? or tumblr?”
I hear you. I already experienced that until I found out these things that might help you to your problem.
If you are targeting backlinks, go to Tumblr.
You’ll get a do-follow backlink if someone:
- reblogged your posts
- reblog a post
- like a post
Make sure to like and reblog posts with hundreds of notes. 😉
Reblog and Like as many posts as you want. Some tumblr blogs e.g. mytumblrblog.tumblr.com have a high page rank even if it doesn’t have it’s own domain name. What more if it has a domain? This is how my other blog got PR4.
Pros + and Cons –
+ Easy to use.
+ Works well with backlinks and page ranks.
+ Linked tumblr to facebook and twitter without installing plugins.
+ You can change the way the tweets are being displayed on twitter.
+ Great themes.
– Not SEO Friendly, however as of my observations you can add codes to it’s theme to make it SEO-Friendly though I’m not sure if this really works, haven’t tried it yet.
– You need to install a comment plugin to enable comments.
– You cannot export and import your posts easily. I’ve tried exporting my posts to a tool somewhere in the internet and it works fine I got the .xml file but when I tried to import it on wordpress, it was really a mess. Not recommended.
– Only tumblr users can like and reblog your posts. How about visitors outside tumblr?
If you want to make your site SEO Friendly then go to WordPress.
WordPress has a lot of plugins that may help you to optimized your site to Google Search Engine. While tumblr doesn’t have that feature.
You can also increase your backlinks using wordpress by commenting to other blog’s posts.
Pros + and Cons –
+ All visitors inside and outside wordpress can dropped a comment
+ Hundreds of plugins are available
+ You can do anything with the theme’s design.
+ Easy to export and import
– It is not free if you have self-hosted blogs or own domains.
– Most wp blogs are no-follow links on their comments section but you can make it do-follow with a plugin.
– You can’t prevent spams to enter your blog although you can block it by a plugin called Akismet.
– Can’t think of a negative side anymore.
If you’re a wp user, you already familiar with the other pros and cons.
I’m not saying that WordPress is better or Tumblr is better. I’m just explaining what these two blog engines can do for you and for your blog when dealing with backlinks, SEO and page ranks. I hope this post really helped you.
