WordPress currently runs over 66 million websites.
That’s around 17% of the entire world’s websites that are up and running thanks to the trusty platform. It has nearly 20,000 people making money from using it every single day. Not only does WordPress offer complete translation in many different languages, such as German, Polish, Dutch, and French. The platform is highly thought of in the internet world and is used a lot since it’s trustworthy and totally free. There are so many websites that use WordPress including CNN, Forbes and TechCrunch. 19,000 plugins are available on the site (see our article on the 3 most essential WordPress plugins here.) It is also estimated that the various different plugins available on the platform have been downloaded around 285 million times!
9. The WordPress Community.
Using the WordPress platform allows you as a person or business to interact, provide support and exchange ideas with other members of the website. There are forums available for this or if you get the chance you can attend WordCamp events in person where you can meet and greet people from around the world.
8. WordPress is extremely popular.
It’s not surprising that WordPress is so popular given the ease of use and the thousands of professional themes and plugins available. At least 27% of all websites out on the internet are (or have been) powered by WordPress.
7. It is search engine friendly.
There are so many plugins that can help improve the SEO of your website including the Yoast plugin. Allowing WordPress to run your site can solve thousands of SEO issues that you had no idea how to solve yourself.
6. WordPress is great for bloggers.
If you own a blog you probably don’t have the slightest clue on how to code or create websites. Having your blog on a WordPress platform means you can visually create the website yourself if you’re on a budget. (If you’re looking for professionals to create your site – take a look at our packages available.)
5. It is ready for mobile.
You’ve probably heard of the importance of having your website ‘mobile friendly’, a lot of web designers must spend endless hours creating (basically 2 websites) in order to allow their websites to be mobile friendly, but most WordPress themes automatically do this for you. No hassle with the WordPress platform.
4. WordPress is over 10 years old.
This means that WordPress is mature and therefore very trustworthy. During the last 10 years the team behind WordPress has tested, refined, and enhanced the site so it has it been able to keep up with the times.
3. WordPress is open source
Just because you would want to use the WordPress platform doesn’t mean to say that you must build the site there. It is possible for a web designer to code a site manually and then transfer the content onto WordPress for easier accessibility and allowing the user to upload to the site using a simple layout.
2. It is one of the best.
Undoubtedly there are many other websites similar to WordPress, such as BlogSpot, but nothing compares to the high-quality services you get when you use WordPress. It has so many features readily available and is so easy to use, it’s the best around. Ask anyone!
1. It’s totally free
Is there anymore that needs to be said? Probably not. The site is completely free and they claim it always will be. This means you’ll have your site sorted for free for as long as you need.
