Why is WordPress the best content management system?

Are you looking to create a website, but don’t know where to begin? Or do you have a feeling that your current website is not working as well as it should? Yes? Well, you’re in good company because these are very common emotions.

At Blue Whale Media, the website design Warrington based agency, we’re experts in guiding you through the whole process of either creating or improving websites. And we use the content management system WordPress, which we believe is the best for a number of reasons. Here are just a few…

  • WordPress is the most popular online content management software in the world
  • WordPress powers approximately 25 percent of all websites on the Internet – that’s a lot!

If you know about WordPress already, you’ll know that it’s “open source” software, which means that it’s free. So you can create your own website for nothing. You can get started by visiting WordPress.com, which will host your site for you, or downloading the software at WordPress.org.

But obviously, the decision to create your own website takes a fair amount of time and effort, and many entrepreneurs – understandably – feel intimidated by the thought of learning the technology. That’s where Blue Whale Media, the Warrington web design agency, can help you with essential advice. We can assist you with everything from the actual look of your site to the best practices in search engine optimisation (SEO).

But here are a few more factors in favour of WordPress…

Great for SEO

WordPress has a particularly good reputation for functioning well with search engines. It’s designed so that Google, for instance, can easily crawl the source code. And once you’ve got to grips with a good SEO strategy, utilising important keywords, customers will have no problem finding you. 

Easy to use

You don’t need to be a technical boffin to use and update a WordPress website. If you’re already familiar with Microsoft Word or Excel, for instance, it won’t take you long to learn WordPress and its templates. Then, before you know it, you’ll be adding content, uploading images, and even mastering plugins and widgets.  

Plugins

Again, WordPress is well-regarded for its range of plugins, which are extra pieces of software that enhance the functionality of your site. There are some free default plugins that come with a WordPress installation, such as Akismet, which protects against spam. But there are also paid-for plugins, which can be worth it because they come with a technical team who can answer your queries.  

Here at Blue Whale Media, the Warrington web design agency, we’re more than happy to provide you with more information on any of these areas. With our help, you can make sure you’ve got an incredible WordPress website – one that meets all your business needs.
