We have a go !

WordPress is OK. Google got *this* blog indexed within a few days, but Google’s own Blogspot and Groups don’t get indexed in the ‘regular’ search. WordPress has some advantages and also some disadvantages over my Blogspot blog and Google group combination. Main advantages & disadvantages of WordPress:

+ WordPress alows you to have static pages, Blogspot doesn’t. That’s why I have a Google Goup.

+ Better styles with menus for the static pages.

– Can’t upload ZIP’s, PDF’s, etc. I’ve got to find another place for the Phat download.

– Less user friendly.

– Difficult to make proper thumbnails of large images. There’s only one size for a thumbnail.

– Less flexibility in layout of blog postings.

So, all in all: the Google indexing is quite important, and I will migrate the Phat Google group and Blogspot to WordPress. A lot of work already has been done, but there’s still some to do.
