08 May / WordPress Websites Are Not Just for Bloggers Anymore!
When searching for an affordable website platform where you can manage the content, you’ll undoubtedly be hit with a variety of options—Google’s Blogger, Weebly or Tumbler, for example. But possibly one of the most user-friendly website platforms available is WordPress, a platform known for its streamlined design and easy-to-use editing functions that make it possible for the average person to update and edit their own site.
Google loves WordPress, because its sites are ideal for search engine optimization (SEO). And, businesses love WordPress because it offers customization while still maintaining an orderly, manageable platform for web publishing.
What is WordPress?
WordPress is a free, open source content management system (CMS) that, to date, powers more than 60+ million websites worldwide and is currently the most popular blogging system on the web. Although WordPress was originally developed and is well known for its blogging uses, it’s no longer just for bloggers. WordPress also comes with customizable templates, including widgets, making it easy and affordable to create web pages and portfolios.
Who Uses WordPress?
WordPress is a great tool because it can be used both by regular people and web developers. It uses an edit panel similar to Microsoft Word, which makes it very easy for non-developers to navigate and create pages and posts. It also ensures proper formatting and text styling so that the site always looks just right.
