When it comes to building a website, web developers have their choice of several different content management systems like Joomla or Drupal. One of the most trusted, however, is WordPress. At Prager, we love using WordPress to build our web designs, so we recommend it to all of our clients. Here’s why:
1. Google loves WordPress
Like any other company, we know you want your website to be found on Google (and search engines in general). With WordPress, you’ll have access to a wide array of plugin options created specifically for search engine optimization. Plugins like WordPress SEO Pack, Google Analytics, Redirection, and more can help you get your website found.
2. Save time and money
With a WordPress site, you can easily add new content and make changes to your website without having to contact your designer. Also, with other available WordPress plugins, you can do things like post your blog articles to Twitter and Facebook as soon as you publish them, or add social media sharing icons to your content.
3. It can be responsive
The popularity of mobile devices is growing each year, which means if you don’t have a website that’s responsive, you could lose potential customers. With WordPress, you can make your website look good on any size screen (whether it’s a desktop, laptop, tablet, or smartphone) and make it easy to read and navigate for all of your visitors. And, if your site isn’t responsive yet, moving your site to WordPress is a great way to kill two birds with one stone. There are many WordPress developers (like us!) that will make sure your WordPress theme is fully responsive.
4. Fast indexing
Whenever you add new content to your website, search engine spiders will quickly search through your content and index it in their search results. This means your content can be found fast by others.
5. Easily design a new website
A regular website has static pages, which means that if you want to give it a new design, you’ll have to migrate each page individually. When you build a website in WordPress, however, you’ll have your entire website in one database, so if you ever want to design a new look for you site, all you have to do is change the theme. WordPress has thousands of themes for you to choose from and there are many design agencies that specialize in designing WordPress themes if you require something custom.
6. Make changes anytime, anywhere
Because your website will be available online, you can make changes to it in any browser, at any time, no matter where you are (as long as you have Internet access, of course).
7. Standard web compliance
WordPress has gone to great lengths to make sure that every bit of its generated code is fully compliant with W3C standards. This means that your website will be compatible with all modern browsers, usability, SEO, and any new technologies that are developed.
8. It’s open-source
Because WordPress is an open-source content management system, you’ll always have access to its source code and its huge user base, so you can find help for virtually anything you want to do.
9. Small learning curve
WordPress is arguably the most user-friendly content management system that you can use to build your website, so you can easily learn how to post, edit, navigate, change, and add elements to your website. It’s also easy to add media like photos, audio, and video.
Like any other company, you want your website to be secure. WordPress gives you full control of user roles and permissions, the ability to create private and password-protected pages, the option to implement automated backups and security scans, and more to keep your website safe.
