WordPress started life as a platform many years ago for running blogs, however over the years it has developed into one of the most powerful content management system on the planet. By content management system we mean a system that can hande data and be customised to display it in many ways (In other words the software behind a website).
The beauty of wordpress is impressive, below are 4 key points:
- It is extremely user friendly
- it is very custamisable
- search engines love it.
- Social media integration
By user friendly we mean, that literally anyone can use it to update things on a site run using wordpress software. Here at Solent SEO we offer full training and remote support for wordpress run sites, and wherever possible we prefer to build new sites in wordpress to allow the company purchasing the site to be able to update it themselves in future.
Customisable basically means we can build a wordpress site to look like a blog or a website, we can even convert your existing site into wordpress and modify the wordpress installation to look like your old site. Better still as your business grows and develops, your wordpress site can grow and develop with it.
Search engines love wordpress as it is so easy to set up for search engine optimisation requirements, also the ease of publishing new content means wordpress run sites are often the ones which contain more fresh and unique content. Search engines love fresh unique updated content.
Again wordpress makes it very easy to integrate Social Media applications into your website, to allow customers to interact with your business online through the likes of Facebook, Twitter, Youtube etc.
For these reasons we focus on using wordpress or a similar CMS in the majority of our web designs, and focus on education of clients to understand how to make their sites come alive.
