1. Hosted blog platform.(as a service) www.webreps.in
2. Self-Hosted blog platform.(as an application)
Blogs like blogspot , typepad and wordpress.com are examples of a hosted blog. www.webreps.in
In this platform the blog is pre-hosted and is provided as a service.
A hosted site makes it extremely easy for you to start a blog and see if you like it without spending a lot of money up front. Generally extremely user-friendly and fairly intuitive. www.webreps.in
Hosted sites also offer WYSIWIG editors .
Customizing the Template : You will generally have less control of your HTML or CSS. Ads : WordPress.com does not allow advertising on your blog. SEO : There are platform limitations. For example, archiving can be less user-friendly; TypePad can have issues with comment spam and trackback spam. www.webreps.in
Less professional : Blogger blogs can appear to be less professional. This is a bias in the blogging community.
You have control over all of your HTML and CSS . You have control over permalinks . This means that instead of the platform choosing the name of a post, you choose a name. This will help not only with managing permalinks, but with managing your SEO (or search engine optimization). There are many plug-ins for the WordPress.org platform that allow you to do everything from managing advertising to managing and responding to comments more efficiently. www.webreps.in
You have control over how your archives are managed .
You need to be technical to get a blog started. You should be more comfortable with HTML, CSS, and PHP in order to tweak your templates. www.webreps.in
