What if we told you that we could build you a website that you could edit yourself? What if we also told you that the very same website that you could edit yourself would manage to generate five time more web traffic than a normal website?
We are not kidding….
Believe it or not, the most powerful website platform that has been developed in the last 10 years has been the emergence of WordPress. WordPress allows the owner of a website to create and edit their own pages, post updates on a news feed, and even add pictures to blog posts.
The most remarkable thing about WordPress-powered websites is that they out perform normal websites in search engine rankings (especially with Google). We have personally witnessed multiple sites (including our own) see traffic increases of 300-500% as a result of WordPress.
The primary challenge with WordPress websites is that they can be very hard to develop. This is why well over 90% of web designers and developers won’t even bring the topic up.
However, we here at Blue Phoenix Web and Graphic Design spent a good 4-5 years playing around with the application until we figured it out. We are now able to build custom WordPress-powered websites that look fantastic and perform very well in search engines.
Notable Web Sites that Use WordPress
Some of the more notable companies that use WordPress on their websites would be:
How Popular is WordPress?
Over 14.7% of the top 1 million sites on the web use WordPress. It is the most popular content management system on the web.
What Are the Top 5 Advantages to a WordPress Site?
1) Owner Control
Gives owner of a website complete control with the ability create and edit pages, post on a news feed, and add pictures to pages.
WordPress sites outperform normal websites in search engines by dynamically generating web pages. This is different and more effective than a static website.
3) Advanced Functionality
WordPress sites have the ability to add widgets and plugins that enhance a website and add advanced functionality that would otherwise be difficult to create.
Visitors to a site can comment on posts or pages if the owner of the website chooses to make this option available. The owner is able to moderate these comments and must approve them before they go live. It’s a great way to create an online interaction between a business and its customer base.
5) Ability to Create Accounts
One of the cool things about a WordPress-powered website is that multiple employees or users can be given access to the site. The administrative owner can also set permissions that determine what these employees or users have access to. This is a fantastic option for businesses, organizations, and enterprises that want to delegate the responsibilities of updating their website to employees within the company.
