With 33.9% of the internet using WordPress as a platform for their websites, it’s no wonder why this is an obvious choice.
WordPress is perfect for stunning visuals and a useful platform for managing content.
Countless brand names such as Disney, UNICEF, Time Magazine and Sony opted for WordPress as their web development model.
Juvo Web Design are here to tell you how WordPress could be the right choice for your business.
What Is WordPress?
First things first, what is WordPress do you ask? You’re going to hear a lot about Content Management Systems (CMS) and this is essentially what WordPress is. In its simplest terms, a CMS is a computer application that allows you to create and manage digital content, so web pages etc.
According to W3Techs who provide web technology surveys, WordPress is used by 60.6% of all content management systems that we know of.
Ease Of Use
The first pro of WordPress is that it is so simple to use. You don’t have to be a web development expert to navigate across the site. Initially, the platform was created for bloggers, building off a discontinued blogging software called b2/cafelog by creators Matt Mullenweg and Mike Little.
Since its official launch on May 27th, 2003 WordPress continues to include simplicity in its design.
Powerful Content Management System
As mentioned above, WordPress is the largest content management system for internet users. Tying in with ease of use, WordPress is incredibly easy to manage all web pages across your site.
You can edit text on a page like headings and paragraphs when you wish to update. Those with the most basic computer language skills can use WordPress without much confusion.
Website Choice Flexibility
Whether it’s a website for blogging, a small to large business, an online shop or a website for online courses, WordPress can meet your requirements.
There are so many different websites you can have created for you with WordPress web development. Yet another reason why it’s so popular today.
For the average joe soap who doesn’t understand all this plugin lingo we will break it down into simple English. A plugin for a website is much like an app for a mobile phone, with different features associated with each one. Like a mobile phone, you are able to add additional features to your website with various plugins.
WordPress has over 50,000 plugins to choose from with the most popular including Mailchimp, Yoast SEO, WooCommerce and Contact Form 7.
The Obvious Choice For SEO
With the Yoast SEO plugin, among many more features, WordPress is the obvious choice for Search Engine Optimisation (SEO). A digital marketing term, SEO refers to the practise of gaining website visibility on search engines like Google by aiming to rank your site for certain search terms.
The ultimate goal of SEO is to get your website ranking on page 1 of Google for targeted search terms. WordPress is designed with SEO in mind and even offers easy to understand information and advice on optimisation.
