Google gives preference to Blogger/Blogspot.

Over the years, I've noticed that blogs (and blog posts) on Blogger ( not only get listed quicker on Google than on Yahoo (which is natural since Google owns Blogger/Blogspot, but also get listed higher on Google than other search engines.

I've also noticed that when you post to your blog, its ranking in Google's search results goes higher for a couple days, even the older posts. It's as if Google factors in "time since last post" in their ranking algorythm.

Wordpress seems to be the better blogging platform from a technical perspective, but it sure appears to me that Google plays favorites with Blogger/Blogspot.

I think Blogger's Comment engine is problematic and tedious. (Going to a different screen, word verification, Identity, etc.) If blogspot changed that, it'd be the same as wordpress.
