31 Mar WordPress: A Solution for Chaotic Web Development Processes
Businesses need to maintain a scalable presence on the web to remain competitive. Many IT professionals of large-scale organizations have historically considered expensive web development solutions requiring proprietary support contracts to guarantee quality. But now, there is a reliable, cost-friendly alternative.
Who would have thought at the turn of the century that non-programming amateurs wanting to build a website, would be able to do it by just a simple click now? This can be done by WordPress.
What is WordPress?
In layman’s terms, WordPress is the simplest, most popular content management system platform to create your website. WordPress powers over 40% of all the websites on the Internet which means that more than one in four websites that you visit are powered by WordPress.
On a more technical front, WordPress is an open-source, content management system which means that anybody can use and modify the WordPress software for free. WordPress makes building a website doable for anyone and by anyone it means even people who aren’t developers. Over a decade into WordPress’s existence and now with the highest market share in CMS, it is fast becoming a solution that even the largest of firms want now.
WordPress’s Hand in Hand Functionality with Inbound Marketing and SEO
Initially, WordPress was fundamentally a tool to create a blog. This is the reason that it is one of the best platforms to choose if a business wants to get into inbound marketing. Inbound marketing is a crucial component of the content marketing puzzle and is essential to search engine optimization success. WordPress makes considerable easy for a business what can be a complicated part of marketing. There are many complicated SEO tasks that can be accomplished easily using WordPress as it automatically solves a lot of SEO issues. WordPress takes care of 80-90% of SEO mechanics.
Websites powered by WordPress tend to rank high on Google and other search engines for their keywords majorly because they are constantly being updated. WordPress also includes a variety of tools and plugins for optimizing content for SEO. WordPress has more than 57,000 plugins to choose from— these plugins are always being updated to match with the ongoing, continuous technological advancements. This means that a website can be conveniently updated without the need for a total redesign and recast.
Mobile responsiveness is an important factor in Google rankings so websites need to look presentable and orderly on any device. For that, WordPress offers a variety of responsive theme designs. Users can also make a static site responsive with plugins and adjustments to theme files.
With the changes to the core code and massive ecosystem of plugins and themes offered by WordPress, anyone can create any type of website with WordPress. Apart from blogs and business websites, e-commerce stores, portfolios, resumes, social networks, and membership sites etcetera are also powered by WordPress. If only the CMS-built sites are numbered then 64.1% of them are WordPress which is a striking 4% growth from 2020.
More Control over Self-Hosted Websites
WordPress is an open-source platform which means that the source code is readily available, can be redistributed, and modified freely. WordPress websites can be used with any web host and that is a freedom that most platforms are not offering. If a company opts for a proprietary CRM that binds them to specific hosting, the website becomes vulnerable. If something happens to that company, all the websites hosted on it would cease to exist without leaving a trace.
