Blogger Features

You might think, as a free service this is very limited but the limitations are not so much as you think. Actually there are a lot of features you can use. I discussed some of them below.

Adding a Custom Domain

By default, your blog’s domain name (url) will appear at a subdomain of blogspot.com (e.g. blogname.blogspot.com). But you can add a registered custom domain to your blog (e.g. www.example.com), and can redirect the subdomain to your custom domain.

No Need to Buy Hosting

Generally, the blogs are hosted by Google at a subdomain of blogspot.com, so you don’t need to spend money to buy a hosting.

Installing a Custom Template

There are a lot of custom templates are available online, you can install one of them and customize it.

Creating your own Template

You can create your own Blogger template very easily.

Redesign Your Blog

You can change your blog’s look using CSSJavaScript. Bu this time you will need to have Blogger Template‘s code knowledge. But don’t worry, I will teach you everything step by step.

Blogger for Mobile Devices

Blogger has a different view for mobile devices. The visitors who access your site from mobile devices will view your site on a selected mobile template.

Adding More Users

You can invite more users (up to 100) to write posts on your blog as a author or admin.

Earning Money from Your Blog

You can directly integrate your Google AdSense account to your blog and can earn money by displaying Advertisements on your blog.
