Why WordPress Is The Most Popular Choice
I use wordpress to design and create business websites for my clients. Now, most people have no idea what wordpress is, to them a website is a website. They look similar to each other and they function pretty much the same way.
Some express surprise when told it is the most popular blog platform on the internet. They want a website not a blog. Then you pretty much lose them when you mention that wordpress can be used as a content management system (CMS).
Basically, wordpress can be set up to look like a html or css website. You can use pages instead of the post and category function in wordpress. But what gets the best results is to set up your static information on pages and then use the post function in the form of articles, promotions, product reviews and so forth.
One. It gets you better results on the search engines for your keyword phrases. It also tells the search engines how active your website is.
Two. It is easy for the client to maintain and update their websites by using the post function. if you can use email, you can write a post on wordpress.
