Advantages Of Using WordPress – By Jarryd Fillmore
There are many advantages to using WordPress. Wordpress has been around since the early 2000’s and it is by far the most used content management system on the web. Below are a few reasons as to why you should from any other content management system (Joomla, Drupal), to WordPress.
Ease of Use
WordPress is extremely easy to use. This is especially true if you want any clients to use your websites. Adding new pages, new blog posts, or even changing the look of the site are pretty simple without using any code whatsoever.
Manage your website from any computer
One of the best things about using a content management system (not just WordPress) is that you can log in from anywhere there’s internet access. Whether it’s from your mobile phone, tablet, laptop, desktop or anything else, you can log in and use WordPress.
No coding required
Another great thing about using WordPress is that you generally don’t have to know anything about coding to do what you want it to do. You can create new posts, add new pages and do a whole lot more without any coding knowledge.
Search engines really like WordPress sites
The code behind WordPress websites is extremely clean and because of this, it’s very easy for search engines to go through your website and rank it properly.
Control over your website
You really don’t have to wait for anyone else (aka a web designer or web developer) to update the site for you. You have complete control to do so!
Blog is built-in and ready to go
WordPress initially started out in the early 2000’s as a blogging platform. It’s grown since then with the addition of plugins and other different functionalities, but the blog still comes in ready to go right from installation.
Extend your website with plugins
Plugins are essentially extensions to your website that allow you to addon functionalities to your website. Do you want to sell products online? There’s a plugin for that. Do you want to start a social network? There’s a plugin for that too.
