WordPress is a free web software in which you can use to create and maintain website or blog.An easy way to set up a blog has become much more than just a tool for bloggers. Today’s WordPress is really a “content management system” (CMS), which means that it can be used to run full-sized, social media-rich business websites.
There are four main reasons to consider why using WordPress for a new website:
- WordPress designs are based on “Themes”. Themes are composed of images and cascading style sheet (CSS) webpage layouts, and this makes it very easy for us to customize the look and feel of a WordPress site using a pre-existing Theme and a new page layout created in Photoshop (or a layout imported into Photoshop.
- WordPress software allows anyone to create and edit new web pages and blog “posts” using only a web browser. The WordPress editing interface is very easy to use there’ no knowledge of HTML or other code is required. The site administrator can grant various levels of access to others, allowing them to contribute to the website/blog. Because the interface is web-based, creating and editing pages can be done from anywhere with an Internet connection.
- The blogging features in WordPress allow you to update your website/blog frequently, to receive and respond to comments from your readers, and to allow others to subscribe to your site content using RSS. Also great for your human customers and potential customers. It is also great for search engines, because search engines like fresh content.
- There are many more features of a WordPress website or blog that make it much, much better than a traditional “static”, “brochure-style” website when it comes to search engine optimization and social media. And many of these features are taken care of automatically, requiring little or no effort (or programming skill) on your part.
You may have done as much as you can to get your WordPress site up and running, but you need a little help to finish the job or you may need assistance optimizing your site for search engines, or finding and installing the best WordPress plugins and widgets.
