Stats show WordPress powers over 40% of all websites. That’s a huge chunk, and if you’re not on WordPress yet, you’re probably wondering, “Why?”
WordPress used to be a blogging platform, but it’s adapted well over the years and become extremely versatile, allowing users to create fully-functional sites of any category. It’s also open-source software, meaning it’s completely free, redistributable, and offers unlimited validity.
Beyond the basics of what WordPress is, however, there are several features that make it a truly great option for your new website:
Built with SEO in Mind
WordPress natively applies most of the core SEO coding needed for the major search engines like Google, Yahoo, and Bing, including precise HTML markup, SEO-beneficial permalink, and image optimization.
Enabling users, especially non-developers, the ability to quickly manage and customize their own website has been core to the original concept of the WordPress platform. When working with American Creative Consulting, we keep true to this concept and go out of our way to make sure every aspect of the site we develop can be quickly, easily customized.
Plugins, Plugins, Plugins
No matter what you need to do with your site, there’s a plugin for it. Since WordPress is an open-source platform, many advanced (and amateur) developers have been able to create unique plugins to expand and enhance the functionality of the platform. With many free and paid options available, you can be sure to find what you need for your website.
WordPress is ready for your mobile users. As our world switches from desktop users to mobile users, you can rest assured that your website will automatically perform great in any scenario.
It’s true, the bigger the target, the bigger the security risk. But the WordPress development team knows this as well, which is why they deploy constant updates to their platform to minimize any security threats that could be taken advantage of. In addition to the automatic updates to the WordPress core, we also recommend considering a monthly management plan to further thwart any kind of website disaster that could occur.
WordPress is unparalleled, its ability to stay in the top rankings of CMS platforms shows that it’s a true winner. If you’re not using WordPress, or are using it, but not taking advantage of its full capabilities, we’d love to help. Contact us now to have a FREE AUDIT of your current site!
