For the majority of our websites we use the WordPress Content Management System (CMS).
Why do we use WordPress? It’s a leading open source platform and a great starting point for any site. It has a very intuitive interface with a low learning curve meaning anyone can easily create and edit pages and posts.
It’s excellent for search engine optimization (SEO) as it automatically generates title tags and meta descriptions for all of your pages and posts which lets search engines index your site easily. This is a reason why WordPress sites tend to rank higher than others in search engines.
And thanks to its scalable nature a WordPress site can be extended to create a myriad of different websites – it can power a corporate site, a secure online shop or a complex membership directory.
It’s also a secure platform. WordPress is developed with security in mind, and its security can be strengthened with open source security plugins.
