WordPress Web Design And Maintenance

Why Use WordPress CMS and Not Some Other Blogging CMS?

WordPress CMS has become the go-to content management system (CMS) for bloggers worldwide. In fact, there are currently over seventy-two million WordPress sites online, with over 100,000 more added every day. How popular are WordPress blogs? Each month, over 392 million people view more than 13.3 billion pages, making over sixty million comments on 35 million new posts.

So why has WordPress suddenly become the most popular blogging platform in the world? Bottom line: it makes blogging easy! Below, our Omaha website design team at Big Red SEO has provided a few reasons why we absolutely love WordPress.

WordPress is free!

While there are other blogging platforms that are also free, WordPress offers an easy-to-use interface that does not complicate blogging or require you to be tech-savvy. In fact, there are thousands of free, very professional looking templates online, affording bloggers the ability to easily customize their sites without any added hassle.

Scheduling posts is a breeze

At Big Red SEO we realize that time is money! With WordPress, you can add content and then schedule the date on which you want your post to publish. Taking that a step further, you could write an entire course or essay, break that into multiple parts and schedule each part to post to your site on the same day and time each week. This really helps the person who doesn’t have much spare time to worry about publishing their posts on a regular basis.

WordPress is SEO friendly

The code that drives WordPress is easily indexed by Google, so with the proper setup, you’re able to maximize the probability of ranking high in search engine results pages (SERPS). While this alone is not enough to get you to number one, it does give bloggers a running start. It’s our experience that Omaha SEO companies like Big Red SEO can help take your blog that extra step to dominate the search engines.

WordPress is social networking friendly

Our Omaha SEO team believes successful bloggers brand themselves across multiple social networking sites like Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and LinkedIn. With WordPress, it’s possible to automatically integrate your blog posts to countless social media sites, eliminating the need to go to each site, log in and make a post stating that you’ve recently added something to your blog.

The learning curve for WordPress is fast

Learning how to add photographs and images, edit content and post pages are easy, maybe even more so than Microsoft Word. Most of the basic functions of WordPress can be learned in under an hour, even if you have zero design or programming experience. At Big Red SEO, we realize knowledge is power! We offer basic WordPress training with all of our website designs.

WordPress can be locked down to make it ultra-secure

There are numerous methods to securely lock down a WordPress site. Big Red SEO’s favorite reference for stopping hackers in their tracks comes from the Hands-on Web Hosting blog entry entitled “3 Easy Ways to Beef Up WordPress Security”.

If you are experiencing spammers, WordPress is also very resistant by giving you the option to moderate comments and blacklist known spammers. There is an ability to filter spammers both by content and IP addresses. It also incorporates a spam blocker called Askimet which helps to automate the process for you.

Plugins increase functionality

There are literally thousands of free and low-cost plugins written for WordPress which can dramatically increase its functionality. These cover everything from social media integration to setting up membership sites.

Other great news about WordPress is that unlike other website design software like Photoshop, Expression Web, or Dreamweaver, upgrades to WordPress are always free!

Keyword Density – Optimize for Business Success, Not for Search Engines!
