WordPress: the most popular CMS

WordPress offers endless possibilities, and its security and reliability are unmatchable. By a large margin, most websites worldwide run on this CMS. This ensures that errors and bugs are discovered immediately. But why is it so popular?

To overview

Why do most professionals work with WordPress? 

The fact that WordPress is the most widely used Content Management System in the world has its advantages. You can simply rely on it – otherwise people would choose another CMS. Nowadays, most professionals work with WordPress, which makes for faster development as there are more and better plugins coming, more and better themes and more and better links to external software. 

WordPress is open source

Even without any experience, you can easily master the easy-to-manage CMS. Besides its user-friendliness and versatility, WordPress has a really big advantage: it is open source (free). This means that it is free to download, and the code can be modified however you like. So this is why WordPress has become so big. Developers create something extra, and then they can choose to make it available to everyone in the form of a plugin. 

Search engine friendly

You want your website to be easily found by search engines. For this you need a CMS that offers the right basic structure. WordPress is a good option for this, as it allows the search engine to easily crawl your texts. Based on this, the search engine determines, in combination with how your texts are written, how high you will be ranked organically (without ads). To write SEO-friendly texts you can for example use the plugin Yoast.
