WordPress makes up 43% of all sites on the internet, and over 500 new WordPress sites launch each day - so what makes WordPress so appealing?
It’s Fully Customizable
WordPress has to be one of the most accessible platforms for in-depth website building and is accessible for hobbyists and web developers alike. It’s customizable with over twenty thousand pre-made themes, each built with the ability to adjust to meet your preference and vision for your website.
WordPress is open-source, so it’s easy to develop new functionality and features and find infinite plugins to get your site to do what you want. The WordPress community is vast and friendly; if you’re having trouble or trying to develop/find a possible feature, plugin, or theme, odds are there are knowledgeable people ready and willing to help.
One popular plugin, WooCommerce, easily integrates with WordPress and allows you to build an online store into your site. It’s fantastic for new and small businesses to create a storefront quickly.
The community continues to develop and improve WordPress with security in mind -- they constantly push updates to keep up with the quickly changing internet and possible cyberattacks.
It’s SEO Friendly
Search engines like Google also love WordPress sites due to their high-quality code and tend to rank WordPress-built sites higher than other sites. So, using WordPress is fantastic for SEO.
