Why WordPress is the option for you!
What is WordPress?

What is WordPress? At its core, WordPress is the simplest, most popular way to create your own website or blog. In fact, WordPress powers over 37.6% of all the websites on the Internet. Yes – more than one in four websites that you visit are likely powered by WordPress.

On a slightly more technical level, WordPress is an open-source content management system licensed under GPLv2, which means that anyone can use or modify the WordPress software for free. A content management system is basically a tool that makes it easy to manage important aspects of your website – like content – without needing to know anything about programming.

The end result is that WordPress makes building a website accessible to anyone – even people who aren’t developers.

Here are the top 10 benefits to using WordPress
Benefits

1. Ease of use.

WordPress is very easy to use and has an intuitive interface. Adding new pages, blog posts, images, etc. on a regular basis is a breeze and can be done quickly. Because the technology is so simple, time spent on formatting is greatly reduced.

2. Manage your website from any computer.

WordPress is browser-based. You can login from any Internet connected computer and manage your site.

3. No HTML editing or FTP software required.

WordPress is a self-contained system and does not require HTML editing software (such as Adobe Contribute or Dreamweaver). You can create a new page or blog post, format text, upload images (and edit them), upload documents, video files, image galleries, etc. all without the need for additional HTML or FTP software.

4. Search engines love WordPress sites.

The code behind WordPress is very clean and simple, making it easy for search engines to read and index a site’s content. In addition, each page, post, and image can have its own meta tag keywords, description, and title, and be optimized for specific keywords, allowing for very precise search engine optimization.  You can also use tags to further enhance your search engine optimization efforts.

5. You have control of your site.

No more waiting for your web designer to make simple updates to your site. With WordPress, you have control of nearly every aspect of your site and can easily make those simple updates yourself.

6. The design of your website is 100% customizable.

WordPress acts as the engine for your website. The look and feel of the site can be 100% customized so your brand can shine through on your site and provide a unique experience to your visitors.

7. A blog is built in and ready to go.

Since WordPress was originally created as a blogging platform, blogging capabilities are built-in and are easy to integrate, if desired. Setting up RSS / email subscriptions to your blog, commenting capabilities, and automatically adding the most recent blog posts to other pages of the site (your home page, for example) are also very simple to set-up, and help to extend your company’s reach and make your site more dynamic and interactive.

8. Extend the functionality of your site with plugins.

Want to add an event calendar, video gallery, Twitter Feed, Facebook Fan Box, and more to your site? WordPress makes this possible with plugins, most of which are free or very reasonably priced.

9. Your site can grow as your business grows.

WordPress sites are very scalable. You can have hundreds of thousands of pages or blog posts on your site and the performance of the site will not be compromised in the least.

10. Have multiple users.

As an administrator of a WordPress site, you can set-up multiple users for the website and assign access levels and capabilities to each user.

Questions and Answers About WordPress
FAQs

WordPress is not just the most popular CMS, it actually blows the competition out of the water. Usage statistics from W3Techs WP is used by 59.5% of all the websites that use a content management system (CMS). The second most used CMS, Joomla has a 5.9% market share. Closely followed by Drupal, with a 4.9% market share and Magento’s 2.8%.

You can start using WP as soon as you install it. There is no configuration required, aside from the customization you give your theme, as well as the plug-ins that suit your interest. Most of the things you are looking for come with the installation, such as the integration of social media feeds, comments, etc.

Out of the box WP is SEO friendly. Popular search engines, like Google and Bing, tend to rank websites that use WP higher than those that don’t. This is because the CMS’ framework makes it easy for the search engines’ spiders to crawl. In fact, Matt Cutts of Google personally endorsed WordPress in 2009.

With the popularity of WP comes the interest of would-be hackers. Another reason why WP is so beloved is the security measures the developers take to preserve the trust of its users. The WP staff constantly update the CMS, along with the plugs-ins that integrate with it. Of course, users should use caution and only download plugins from trusted sources, preferably while directly logged into WP itself.

You can make your WordPress theme look any way you want with a customized theme. You can use one of the many it provides, or buy one of the various premium themes developed by third parties. You can also add and extend certain features to make the website function and perform just the way you want.

Google is penalizing sites that aren’t mobile-friendly by ranking them lower on their result pages. With WordPress, you don’t have to overhaul your entire site to make it accessible on tablets and smartphones, since most themes are automatically responsive. WordPress also has an option for websites to be viewed in “mobile view” for themes that aren’t responsive.

Another reason people love to use WordPress is because of its simplicity. The CMS is as user-friendly as it gets, and very easy for newbies to learn. Not only that, the platform is very intuitive.
