Wordpress best blogging platform

One of the many reasons why WordPress enjoys such adoration and popularity is due to its ability to confer simple usability and provide high-quality features to websites of all types. Being a WordPress development company , we have often been asked by our potential clients what is the significance of choosing WordPress for a website or application? Isn’t that just a mere blogging platform? Although that used to be true in the past, the technology has evolved throughout the years into a versatile Content Management System (CMS) With more than 62 million downloads and a very good rating this platform has nothing to prove, it just works beautifully.

I presume that your company might already have a website, but do you think that it’s really easy to update whenever you feel like? Probably not! Blogger, TypePad , Posterous, Tumblr, Movable Type, are some of the famous blogging platforms used worldwide, but still, when it comes to your business, WordPress stands out of the crowd for very good reasons. Let’s find out what are they!

A software for free

Choosing free or open source technology is not always the best solution but the platform already being well-established has the potential to serve users at all price points from those who want to start with a free theme to the ones who have more specific needs. At this point of time, one must think of hiring a web designer who can effectively create a custom theme that integrates with their site and supports their branding. Right from the start, the only cost involved will be the price of hosting your site.

From simple blogging to full website content

Being already used as a blogging platform, WordPress with few adjustments can be used to run a full-service website. This reason, in particular, is something that makes the platform a one-stop solution that can eliminate the need to use two different programs for your company website and blog.

Optimized for SEO

Whether you create a website or a blog, search engine optimization (SEO) plays a very crucial role in reaching a wide range of audiences. And WordPress sites, in general, tend to be way better in the search engines and rank well. In fact, several sites within days of being set up with keyword friendly domain names that are raking on the first page for that keyword.

Easy update

One of the major complaints of business owners is that they are unable to create free themes, widgets, and plug-ins. Try using the WordPress plugin directory and I am sure from polling to contact forms, backing up your site, blocking spam, making your pages load faster and thousands more can be found for specific use.

Supportive community

It may quite interest you to know that WordPress users and developers have online support networks on various forums. Apart from this, several users are found posting a step-by-step video tutorial that can walk new users through the most basic as well as complex concepts. Apart from referring to this host of free online WordPress resources, you can find WordPress developers for hire.

Could the WordPress Plug-In Business Be Beneficial than Themes?

One of the key reasons for the rise in the popularity of the platform is its customizability and theme management. There are literally thousands of WordPress themes that can be used to customize a website. You can think of using Envato's ThemeForest and TemplateMonster that have popped up over the recent years to provide a forum of all sorts of themes for WordPress users keen to customize their sites. Due to hyper-customization, the industry of WordPress themes, however, might be seeing its twilight in the near future.

Now have you ever wondered why all social media sites seem to have a blue color scheme? It’s partially because there are certain accepted best design practices based on the way the human brain takes in information. Overall, themes have been a major catalyst in the rise of WordPress. Apart from this at present, WordPress comprises 29000 plugins and the number seems to be only growing. In fact, they have a great deal of built-in potential for repeated earnings. What I mean is in case if your plugin on the repository for free, you can still make money on that plugin via ads or paid upgrades, so the revenue stream never dries up.

You will be quite interested in knowing the fact that the potential cash cow can be accessible via the plugin market that themes just don't have access to. For example security. With today’s ever burning issues, vulnerability can pop up very easily in WordPress. After all, one theme can’t be any more or less secure than any other. And this is the time when plugins come in. You will find an array of security plugins such as WordFence who simply aim to secure your website.

Themes can only take you so far. For plugins, the sky's the limit.
