Why You Should Use WordPress for Your Next Website
So why is everyone using WordPress? Is it just a fad, or is there actually a good reason? Read the following post to learn why we set our clients up on the wordpress system.
Advanced SEO Tools
Out of the box WordPress is set up to be decently SEO friendly. With a few simple plugins you can make your site very well optimized. Below are some of my go-to plugins:
- All in One SEO Pack – Powerful tools to nail basic SEO
- Google XML Sitemaps – Make sure that Google can find all your pages
- Redirection – Manage all your 301 redirects and monitor 404 errors
- SEO Rank Reporter – Track your Google rankings every 3 days and see reports of your progress in a graph.
Everyone is using WordPress… but why should you care? Well, with such a large user base, there is always something new being cooked up. Plugins are always being created and your needs always have an easy fix.
Ease of Use
WordPress is extremely easy to install and to change to fit your business needs. Let’s say you wrote a book and want to sell it online. WordPress can easily set up a store that accepts secure payments. Cart66 is a plugin that I use on a regular basis to set my clients up with a powerful e-commerce store
From a simple blog to an advanced content management system (CMS), WordPress has got you covered. You can use Custom Post Type UI to create a content type and then use Advanced Custom Fields to customize the interface and fields.
