First and foremost, YES!
WordPress is the best CMS (Content Management System) for both the advanced and beginner users. Originally the project was launched as a blogging platform for the general public to take advantage of. This allowed users who loved writing to easily create content which led to an entire new generation of bloggers.
WordPress only requires minimal skill to just get it up and running. Anyone with knowledge of graphic design, HTML, CSS, and some creativity, can come up with a website. Now this ease of access does not mean it’s easy to build a user friendly, professional looking, business oriented website. This is where a web design agency still comes into play for those who want a professional online presence.
But all aside, let’s get into it.
The Top 5 Reasons WordPress is the best CMS available.
1. SEO Friendliness – Google indexing is important, and WordPress is able to take advantage of this. For the most part it doesn’t contain excessive HTML code, and you are able to customize every post or page. Thus giving it the highest probability to rank within the google search results.
2. Growth Potential – As your audience and traffic grows, WordPress allows your website to grow as well. You have the ability to easily remove posts and/or pages so you don’t have to cipher through complex PHP files or editing java script.
3. Single-Step Posting – This allows for you to focus on creating content, and not on formatting and other coding problems. What other software allows for you to publish new content in as little as one click and still offer the features WordPress does? None, that is why it’s the best CMS.
4. Universal Platform – When you have a traditional website, coded from the ground up, it’s very hard to find another designer to pick up where the old one left off. If you are unsatisfied with the work your current agency offers and you want to move to another one, they will charge you to build it from the ground up again. WordPress allows for other design agency’s to easily pick up where the last one left off.
5. Time Management – With WordPress you can easily schedule posts for any time of day. Take advantage of this by writing out a weeks worth of posts and schedule them accordingly. This will allow you to be consistent with your posts, even when you aren’t able to actually be at your computer, and consistency is the key to building a great website.
