WordPress is the most widely used content management systems for websites. Most small businesses use this platform because it is easy for developers to build them and even easier to maintain.
When considering whether or not to use WordPress or another platform, the reasons are lengthy.
- WordPress can be built as a stand alone set of files. Some online platforms will allow you to build a website but since it is essentially a part of their online web app, it can never be removed and you have to keep the website with that because of it.
- WordPress is quite possibly the easiest to use for SEO professionals and business owners. It is intuitive and versatile.
- Since such a high population of developers are coding for this CMS, your website will be viable for years to come. Some other competing website builders have such a low share of the market, that fewer developers are learning those systems. Because of this, it will be harder to find experienced people to maintain them in the future.
- WordPress is not going anywhere. Some older website development applications have ceased to exist. Some companies are struggling with this issue right now because their site was built on a platform that is no longer supported and the cost of switching is exorbitant because of the shear size and functionality of what was built.
