There are more than five good reasons to choose WordPress, but here is a breakdown of the main ones that we deem important.
WordPress Is Free
The platform of WordPress is free to download and can be accomplished my most people who are semi technically minded. From then you will need a designer to take over and put together something that looks professional and is built in a way that the all important search engines like. It is great to know that you can still get something for nothing.
Easy to update CMS System
The WordPress platform is so easy to navigate that my 5 year old daughter can put a page together and publish it online. It uses a system more commonly known amongst the web design community as WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get). All you simply would do if you are self publishing is Click add post or page, add a page title, add content and click publish, it really is that simple. Bear in mind that here at Red Noise Media we do a bit more than that ;)
Total control on update and modernising your website
You will find when using wordpress that it becomes quite addictive, with new plugins and themes being released at a phenomenal rate, you find yourself learning new skills and tips every day. With WordPress being quite fool proof, it gives you the confidence to explore new things as your website and business grows.
You don’t have to have a team of WordPress website designers on hand to create a site that works well for your business, but it will help if you can pursued more than yourself to contribute posts and content, you will half the amount of time that you spend adding the unique and fresh content that Google and other search engine love. WordPress make it simple for you to add contributors to your website and easily set privileges so that people can only have access to the admin panel of your website.
Move quickly and organically up the search engine rankings
WordPress also makes it easier to optimize your search engine results. That means your site is more likely to land on the first page of Google results, which means people are more likely to find you. The websites that we generally build and handover are built on top of the fantastic Genesis platform that offers streamlined coding and on page meta title and description editor.
With links going in and around your website you should start moving into a strong online position within weeks. Remember, Google loves fresh and unique content, plagiarising content will see your website demoted down the ranks very quickly.
