Top 5 Benefits of WordPress

WordPress is a versatile, user-friendly content management system that is SEO optimized, mobile responsive and 100% customizable.

If you’re considering launching your business online, a fully functional website is key. But deciding what’s best for your business can be overwhelming. Here at Raw Web Development, we believe the best Content Management Software (CMS) is WordPress. With WordPress, we’re able to develop bespoke websites that meet all your business needs, and we’re not alone. Since it’s release in 2003, WordPress has become one of the most popular web publishing platforms across the world. Today it powers nearly 30 percent of the entire web — from hobby blogs to some of the biggest news sites online.

Here are five of the top reasons WordPress is our #1 choice.

#1: Google Loves WordPress Sites

The code behind WordPress is very clean and simple, making it easy for search engines like Google to read and index a site’s content. In addition, each page, post, and image can have its own meta tag keywords, description, and title, and be optimized for specific keywords, allowing for very precise search engine optimization.  Along with being well coded, the real SEO benefit from WordPress is the Yoast plugin. This plugin is by far the most complete SEO solution that is available for WordPress, and has received over 4.5 million downloads. Apart from improving your website’s SEO in all aspects, Yoast goes that extra mile to take care of every technical optimization. Moreover, Yoast offers a wide variety of features that makes it an all-in-one SEO plugin.

#2: Plugins allow you to make your website 100% Customizable

WordPress acts as the engine for your website. The look and feel of the site can be 100% customized by using plugins so your brand can shine through on your site and provide a unique experience to your visitors. A plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website. They can extend functionality or add new features to your WordPress websites.  There are literally thousands of WordPress plugins, so not matter what you want to do, chances are pretty good that there’s a plugin to help you do it.

#3: Mobile Responsiveness

Most of us look up sites on our smartphones when we’re out. We expect a site to load quickly and to look good on the smaller screen. Many WordPress themes are mobile responsive, meaning they change how a page is displayed depending on where it is being accessed. This makes it easier for mobile users to clearly read your site and get the information they need.

#4: Ease of Use

WordPress is very easy to use and has an intuitive interface.  Adding new pages, blog post and images on a regular basis is a breeze and can be done quickly.  Because the technology is so simple, time spent on formatting is greatly reduced. WordPress also allows you to edit your website from any web browser.  In short, if you have an Internet connection, you can access and edit your website from anywhere in the world.

#5: Expand your website content

As your business grows you may want to add more content to your website.  WordPress allows you to incorporate an unlimited number of new posts and pages as you grow. There’s no pressure to make sure you’ve thought of everything beforehand – as opportunities arise, you can create the additional pages your website needs.

If you’re looking for a website that you can control and manage yourself, then WordPress is a terrific solution for your business. However, you still need a trusted and experienced company to design and develop your website. Contact Raw Web Development to learn more about our award-winning designs.
