Q: Why is WordPress so good?
A: WordPress is a very popular content management system or website management tool because it is easy to use and it gets great results for all our customers. It is also a low cost solution to web development which can grow along with your business. You can be up and running quickly so you can focus on your business rather than just a website. WordPress allows you to develop your website yourself easily and simply so you don’t need to rely on a web designer to make changes for you.
- Over 200 million websites are maintained using WordPress.
- It is so simple to use and you don’t need to know HTML.
- There are millions of developers out there who create ‘plugins’ for WordPress to expand a website in so many creative ways. If you want your website to do something, there’s probably a plugin that will do it.
- It’s great for SEO and Google’s own Matt Cutts says WordPress is “made to do SEO well” – see his video.
- It’s easy to update content on your website and you can update your website anywhere as long as you’re online.
- There is a thriving community of developers who create themes and plugins, often for free.
- You can easily expand your site with polls, contact forms, ratings and so much more without needing to hire a developer.
Q: Can I just have a website and not the blog?
A: Yes of course, WordPress can be used to manage a regular website if you prefer. You don’t have to have a blog if you don’t want one.
Q: Can I change the look of my website?
A: Yes, you can change many parts of your site including fonts, images, colours, backgrounds and much more. Much of this you can do yourself. When you get bored of the look, you can always install a new theme and create a completely new look.
Q: Can I change the layout of my site?
A: All our themes have optional layouts for each of your pages. Depending on your chosen theme, your website layout can be adapted but keep in mind that these designs have been created for the optimal look and feel. So there are some things that are possible and some things that will just look terrible. It’s always best to ask us first about the ideas you have.
