WordPress now powers 25 percent of all sites across the web.
WordPress is an open source CMS (Content Management System) – which means it is free to use. Because WordPress is easily downloadable and completely modifiable, developers from all over the world have contributed to the WordPress project. WordPress has an enormous following of supporters who continually advance its capabilities. These same supporters are also constantly creating new WordPress themes, offering free online advice and support, and doing whatever they can to make WordPress bigger and better. Plus, WordPress isn’t some restrictive “build your own website” kit that forces a certain look and feel. Instead, the fact that is completely modifiable enables you to truly personalize your web presence to best reflect who you are.
FYI: This website is a WordPress site.
Why do we love it?
– Ease of use and versatility. WordPress is suitable for just about everybody; from the absolute novice to the advanced programmer.
– Feature-rich interface. WordPress has a rich text editor with advanced multimedia support.
– Expandable. WordPress’s community distributes a large number of modules for almost any popular website feature.
– WordPress was created with SEO in mind. Search engines can quickly and easily crawl and identify what the content is about because of the way WordPress is designed. There is NO quicker way for your web content to be found!
And the best thing about WordPress is that once your site is in place, you can easily access and update your information, including text, images, video, adding new pages etc., without any kind of web design knowledge. You will have effectively freed yourself from ever having to pay a web designer to do site updates again!
According to the WordPress Codex, “WordPress powers a quarter of all new sites today, and is the content management system (CMS) of choice for more than two thirds of the top million sites making it the most popular on the web, and is trusted by content publishers both large and small including CNN and the NY Times.”
