Top 7 Reasons to Use WordPress

WordPress is the most popular of its kind, as a content management system. Currently, over 60% of websites can be found using WordPress. Statistics state that over 100,000 new WordPress sites are introduced to the net, every single day.

Below are 7 reasons why you should consider using WordPress for your website:

Top 7 Reasons to Use WordPress

1. WordPress is Free of Charge

WordPress is a free, open-source tool. This means that it was created under the GPL license, and is totally free for the end user to use. However, there are other costs for you to consider, when creating a website, such as hosting fees. This can be negated though if you opt to have your site hosted at WordPress.com


There are tons of different things that you can add to your WordPress site too. These additional add-ons often are free, but some of them do cost money.

2. WordPress is Open-Source

As I previously mentioned, WordPress is open-source, which means there are thousands of WordPress developers out there, working to improve this content management system, and all of it is free of charge. You can expect free feature and security updates, on a regular basis, which is more than what you can say for other CMS providers.


The open-source nature, at one point, was its biggest disadvantage, as no one owned it, and thus, no one was obliged to support it, but this has gone on to become its biggest advantage. There is a large global community of WordPress developers that are constantly working towards making WordPress a better experience for you.

3. Easy To Customise

By clicking a few buttons, it’s possible for you to further customize its design and how it interacts with plugins and applications. This is the main reason why newbies tend to navigate towards this platform, as opposed to others. Its navigation system is also very easy to get to grips with, requiring no technical knowledge to firmly grasp.


With WordPress, you have total control over font size, color, and type and website background. And if you want to make things better, you can add videos and images to your content.

4. WordPress Makes SEO Easier

When WordPress first hit the scene, it was nothing more than a blogging platform, today it has evolved into a strong content management system that is flexible enough to be used for a plethora of different things. One of the main things that have made WordPress as popular as it is, and the reason why so many marketers and bloggers alike tend to gravitate towards it, is its search engine optimization features, which are integrated into the CMS. Good SEO is just as important as good content.


5. Lots of WordPress Themes

One of the best things about WordPress is the separation of content from site design. This makes it much easier for you to make changes to site design, without having to worry about how it affects the content. This is more than can be said for other content management systems, as people who indulge in them, are often times forced re-customize their entire site, as a result of such a change.

When it comes to site themes, they are almost limitless, both premium and free designs. You can find a theme for pretty much, any type of site you want to create, whether it’s an e-commerce site or a movie entertainment blog, there is always a theme available for you somewhere.

6. WordPress is Scalable

If you’re an event organizer or publisher of some sort, then you may need an assortment of websites, as part of your overall business. This is all easily solved by using WordPress, as it has multi-site capabilities, allowing you to create many different sites and have them all work together.

7. Mobile Optimisation

Having a mobile-optimized website is no longer an option, but a must. If you want to keep up with your competitors while keeping your visitors happy, then you will need to consider mobile devices. You’ll want your mobile visitors to enjoy a similar experience on your site, to laptop and desktop surfers.


The good thing about all of this is that it’s easily solvable, with the implementation of a responsive WordPress theme. These themes are designed to adjust your website automatically so that they fit into the browser window of the visitor. So you won’t need to create a mobile-optimized site, solely for that one purpose. When it comes to mobile ready themes, there are tons of free and premium designs that you can invest in.
