WordPress is a great platform for building your website. It’s easy to use, customizable, and offers many features that you’ll need when launching your site. There are 10 reasons why WordPress should be the platform that you choose for your next project.
This blog post will go into detail about each of these reasons, including some of the pros and cons of using WordPress as well!
WordPress is open source software which means that the code behind it is publicly available for anyone to use and modify. This makes WordPress very flexible in what you can do with this platform. Additionally, because the WordPress development Sydney is so huge there are always new plugins being made by other developers. There will never be a shortage of extensions or features to add to your website if they aren’t already included out-of-the-box! Finally, one of our favorite reasons why we choose WordPress as our CMS is due to its SEO-friendly nature – something no developer agency should skimp on when creating a great website!
It’s extremely easy for users at all skill levels whether beginner or advanced. It doesn’t require coding knowledge from the user which is a huge plus! WordPress also offers beginners to quickly and easily create content for their websites.
WordPress sites are search engine friendly, making it easy for your site to be found without having any issues with Search Engine Optimization (SEO). This will help grow traffic over time as more people find you on the web through different keywords they may have searched. The SEO plug-ins available further increase this feature allowing you to fine-tune certain aspects of how Google reads your website and posts.
One of our developers at ZG Interactive works primarily in PHP and we love that there’s no shortage of great tutorials out there if we’re ever stuck or need some extra guidance – whether it’s beginner level examples or advanced development techniques. There’s a great community surrounding WordPress development which makes it really easy to find answers quickly.
WordPress is open source software as we’ve already mentioned – but did you know that there are over 30 different plugins available from the free directory alone? This means your website can be enhanced with hundreds of different features without ever having to pay a single cent! Some of these plug-ins include eCommerce stores, contact forms, and SEO optimization tools. Most developers will use between 15-20 different extensions when creating their client’s site so this definitely helps cut down on expenses.
WordPress offers users the ability to create multiple user accounts for those who’d like an editor or administrator role, giving them access only to certain areas of your website such as content editing. This is not only great for clients but also ideal when working with multiple designers or developers on your project. Everyone can have their own account and log in, allowing them to work together in one place without having to constantly communicate through email about something someone else changed.
WordPress sites are flexible in that they’re mobile-friendly automatically – there’s no need to make special changes yourself! There are some plugins out there if you’d like more control over how certain elements look on different platforms (such as changing the size of buttons) however most users won’t need this feature since it comes standard with the WordPress platform already.
One of our favorite features is definitely how easy it is to update content whenever necessary thanks to WordPress’ simple interface! Adding new pages or posts is a breeze with the drag-and-drop editor. There’s no need to worry about messing up previous work since you can easily go back in time and change something if needed!
