Of all the platforms that are available for website development, WordPress has become the choice of most web developers and clients alike. Currently, of all the websites built, roughly 70% are developed using WordPress. So, why is there so much hype on website development using WordPress whether be it a settled business site or just a startup business?
But first, let’s get the general sense of WordPress development. The fact that you are interested in reading a blog on WordPress gives me an idea about you. You know about WordPress development. Nevertheless, I’ll give a rough idea for the new souls (in terms of the world of WordPress) who might not know what WordPress is.
“WordPress is web software you can use to create a beautiful website, blog, or app.”-Wordpress.org. It supports several different languages.
Clients love to control and WordPress delivers it: Everybody would like to have control over the sites they own. They pay money to build a site only to be run by others. I think they would love the power in their own hands. And WordPress gives it to them and the power to run on their own. And that is called dynamic sites. WordPress is a platform which on substantial completion of the sites can be handed to the owner. This enables them to add and remove contents they like. If the site would have been static, she/he would have to contact the developer constantly to edit the site. And the developer doesn’t work for free.
The code of WordPress is streamlined and consistent which Google finds very appealing for indexing in its directory. WordPress also provides an SEO plug-in for optimization of each page in a site, Like Yoast SEO.
Two different designs and developments path for the same site for two different gadgets is a pain in the place. Thankfully, WordPress can automatically detect what type of device a user is using. It then displays the content appropriately for the devices.
The scheduler in WordPress allows you to schedule your post. You do not have to manually do everything within time. With WordPress, you can schedule them and have a good night’s sleep. If you have an e-commerce site and want to activate an offer for New Year, it can be scheduled so that the offer is activated at 00:00:00.01s of the New Year on time.
WordPress concentrates on web design and development. A pre-generated free theme or a customized theme or purchased theme is generally used for website layout or we can generate or build our own websites with the unique design yourself.
The main aspects of the websites that make Google love your site are quality original content. The fact that you are willing to posts new original content often will make web bots such as Googlebot crawl more frequently and index more often.
WordPress allows adding users and giving them the level of authority (through WordPress login info) you want them to have. Some of the available levels of authority are admin, editor, author, etc.
Safe and secure: WordPress was designed to keep an eye on the security front and its database. The techniques used by hackers have been analyzed well to “harden” the security front and also make it harder to hack. With the right setup, your website can blur the line of hacker-proof website boundaries.
