Did you know that WordPress powers approximately a third of the web? It is also the most sought-after content management system (CMS) available, dominating over 60% of the total market share. Here at HashTag Marketing, we specialise in the design of WordPress websites for our clients, both big and small. Along with the statistics already mentioned, here are just a few other reasons why WordPress is almost always the way to go.
While it costs money to have a third-party design your company website on your behalf, it is actually free to use the WordPress software itself. However, do remember that you will need a domain name and web hosting in order to successfully install it. Most hosting providers charge an affordable monthly fee.
Many people have the misconception that you have to stick to a pre-existing template when creating a WordPress website. Luckily, WordPress themes are extremely easy to customise to fit in with your requirements and preferences. It is also possible to set your website apart with the help of various plugins – many of which are also free. Plugins provide lots of additional functionality to your site, such as user-friendly contact forms, analytics and insights, guidance in terms of SEO best practices, and online backups.
It’s focused on SEO
Not quite up to date in terms of how to stay on Google’s good side and boost your rankings? WordPress makes it effortless for you to stay on track. This is because it’s written according to standard compliance high-quality code, allowing Google to easily ‘crawl’ and categorise your website. As mentioned above, there’s also the opportunity to download SEO plugins for more guidance regarding optimising your website design and content. Knowing all of this, it’s unsurprising to discover that WordPress websites tend to rank higher than non-WordPress websites.
Cybersecurity is of the utmost importance nowadays. The great news is that WordPress has been created with safety and security as a top priority. Just always remember to keep the software updated and to ensure that all passwords are strong. You should also be sure to double check that you’ve chosen a reputable hosting provider, as this can have a significant impact on your overall level of cybersecurity.
It supports all types of content
It’s not just ideal for uploading blogs and other website copy. WordPress has adequate support for numerous other types of content critical to keeping visitors engaged and driving conversions, like videos, audio files, images, and embedded social media posts.
