Blogger Brings You The Biggest Update After Many Years!

Blogger Brings You The Biggest Update After Many Years!


Blogger was founded in the year 1999 by Pyra Labs and later on acquired by Google in 2003. By 2006 up to date, every account was hosted on Google’s servers, making the platform a lot more reliable and efficient. However, a lot of people have been criticizing the platform due to lack of its upgrade or in short lack of consideration by the company to the platform when compared to other platforms like WordPress, Wix, and Joomla.    

Blogger or BlogSpot?


Well, before we proceed, let’s clear up a big confusion regarding the terms Blogger and BlogSpot.

Blogger is a free publishing platform, while on the other hand, BlogSpot is a free domain service provider that works perfectly. They’re both owned and managed by Google and are used together on the Blogger platform.

Try entering blogspot.com to your browser URL bar


And you’ll end up at this URL: blogger.com

So Whenever you created your blog on Blogger for the first time, you’ll automatically get a BlogSpot domain for free this means that a free domain with an extension of BlogSpot will be attached to your newly created blog. It is not compulsory that you must use the BlogSpot domain; you can also add your own custom domain if you wish and if you can afford to do so.

Blogger finally Gets New features


Blogger Brings You The Biggest Update After Many Years!

Yesterday I was trying to check one of my blog hosted on blogger and I realize there are some few new features added to the platform. Initially, the feature became available to everyone without any official release, the company wanted to improve the user experience and also to detect some issues before pushing it more broadly. I am very sure that there is hope for blogger users like me soon the platform will compete with some of the most popular open-source platforms like WordPress.    

What are the big changes?

The company has successfully been able to introduce a new interface and also added some cool features too:

  • Stats Section
  • Themes Section and also
  • The Comment Section    


The Stats: The latest stats section allows you to track all your blog visitors based on the daily visit, entire time visit, current month and also last month visit. The new Stats introduced in blogger has the same feature with the previous version but though the section has a new design, new structure and also new cool feature was introduced such as a graph for a single post and the entire blog visit graph.

Any Changes Regarding Blogger SEO?

As for now, I am not really sure if the company have made any changes regarding the SEO of the platform since there is no, any official release, but we are hoping to hear good news from the team. But based on my own opinion blogger is working fine when it comes to Search Engine Optimization (SEO) your rankings determine how you optimize your blog post title, meta description and also URL. As far as you follow the correct practice you would definitely get rank well in the search engines.  

How Would I Get This New Feature To My Dashboard?

Well, based on my view and experienced on the latest blogger design, the team combined some current features of comments and stats in the platform into one single area so as to make it well organized and user-friendly. However, a lot of more features are to be introduced very soon as there are still working on it.

  1. That's awesome. I checked my blogger blog and i didn't see the ''Try the new blogger'' feature. I guess it's still being rolled out gradually.
