Top 10 Google Fonts for Bloggers (With Live Demo of Google’s Top 300)

If you read my post on web safe fonts, you’ll realize that there are only six truly web safe fonts (Arial, Courier New, Georgia, Times New Roman, Trebuchet MS, and Verdana). This is because they’re the only fonts installed on MacOS, iOS, and Windows by default.

operating system market share

Web safe fonts aren’t great options for a blog. They’re unoriginal (which makes them not very brand-able). They’re also not likely to be installed on Android (which has a huge market share). To get a truly web safe font you need to include the font file on your blog. Google fonts is free, and the easiest way to do that.

But, which Google font is the best font for a blog? Sans-serif fonts are going to be what you want, but there are so many to choose from. Because it’s too hard to choose, I’ve listed my top 45 fonts in order with the ability to demo the font right on this page.

Simply click the try font button and all of the text on this page will be converted to that font. I hope this helps you find what you’re looking for!
