As of August 2015, WordPress powered nearly one in four sites on the Web – and of all sites that use a content management system (CMS), WordPress is the choice of more than 80%. It is so popular that CNN, Harvard Business Review, US and UK government agencies among many others use it to power their websites.
WordPress used to be known primarily as a blogging platform, and it remains the best solution to use for blog, however it has come a long way and has become a very comprehensive Content Management System used to power many different types of websites, including business sites, job boards, sites featuring classified ads, etc.
Search engines such as Google love WordPress. Keeping an active blog tells search engines that your site is alive and well, thereby increasing your website’s rank and your chances of being found via organic searches. If you’re looking to get a head start with Search Engine Optimization, WordPress is the way to go for your website or blog.
The beauty of it is its ease of use. If you know how to edit a Microsoft Word document, then you’ll be able to easily update the content on your WordPress site. Updating pages and/or blog posts on WordPress is literally as easy as editing a Word document – you don’t need a web designer to update your content. That is the magic of WordPress!
