With numerous plugins, themes, a great website backup tool, and the largest content management system (CMS) in the world, WordPress is one of the best choices you can make for your website. Over 30% of the top 10 million sites are WordPress-based, and that should tell you something.
However, WordPress is sometimes still misunderstood as being user-friendly only to coders and developers, but this is no longer the case. Things have changed in WordPress, and for the better. But how does this help bloggers and those not super tech-savvy? Glad you asked! Let us show you why WordPress is not only a great option for your website, but the best:
With new build your own and drag and drop website builders coming out regularly, it’s easy to see why people are drawn to them. The issue with these services is that there are limits. Who you can host with, limited quantity of themes, lack of plugin options, and even limits on what you can design.
Now, with the BoldGrid WordPress plugin, you can have all the same convenience of those drag and drop builders, on a better platform. BoldGrid allows you to choose your own theme, any extra plugins, and any extras you want but still offers all the benefits of being on WordPress.
WordPress has been around for a very long time, and with that so has their community. There are countless forums, tutorials, and other avenues to learn more or figure out how to fix an issue you are experiencing. We can almost guarantee that any issue you are experiencing has been experienced by countless others, and solutions exist in abundance.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
SEO. Everybody loves SEO! (Can you sense the sarcasm?) SEO is a fickle beast and is always changing. Luckily when you use WordPress you are already ahead of the game. The framework is set up in such a way that search engines can crawl sites easier, grabbing your information faster and in turn ranking it higher in search results.
With plugins galore you can pretty much integrate any third party software onto your site. This is beneficial for bloggers who might want to sell a book they’ve written or take donations from readers.
Another benefit of being able to integrate with third parties is that you have a choice. For example, when choosing a website backup tool, you can go with a company you trust such as Inmotion Hosting. We offer easy backup options for VPS, shared, and dedicated hosting plans, and they are very wallet friendly.
It Was Made for Blogging!
When WordPress started it was ideal for blogging and that’s what most people used it for. With the option to schedule posts and post whenever you wanted, bloggers loved it. Now, because of how many people have started realizing its full potential, it’s used for almost any website. That doesn’t mean that blogging has taken a back seat, it just means there are more options for bloggers and their sites.
