Popularity of WordPress
To get an idea of how popular WordPress is, pay a visit to Google Trends for an illustration of WordPress’ increasing U.S. popularity and influence in Internet searches compared to its nearest competitors, Joomla and Drupal, between 2010 and 2015.
There are a variety of good reasons why some of the world’s largest companies and high traffic websites are confident that WordPress provides the most robust solution for their business needs. Those reasons include:
- User-Friendly CMS – One reason WordPress has been so widely adopted is that it has a very easy-to-use, intuitive backend. The WordPress CMS makes it easy to manage and update your website in-house, if that’s what you want. The user interface is easy to learn even if you have no technical knowledge, and enables you to add, delete and modify content as needed.
- Scalability –WordPress can be scaled more or less indefinitely for small and large enterprises, and even for businesses that manage massive amounts of traffic. The site design and architecture need to be done properly, however, and your server and network provider must be capable of handling the demand. A server without sufficient processor power and memory resources and a slow Internet connection will limit a website built on any platform. LaunchDM can help you sort out your site’s speed, bandwidth and storage issues.
- SEO Benefits – WordPress has highly effective search engine optimization (SEO) features baked into its core, with standards-based technology that search engines like Google prefers. Because it’s a text-based platform, WordPress sites are easy for Google’s search robots to crawl and this increases your website’s ranking potential. Even Matt Cutts, who leads the web spam team at Google, has stated that WordPress takes care of 80% to 90% of the mechanics of SEO. At LaunchDM, we love how it helps us keep your website outranking its competition in search.
- Responsiveness – Today, a mobile-friendly website is a necessity. If your site doesn’t work seamlessly on a smartphone or tablet, expect your customers to move on. Your content should automatically resize itself for all devices, whether a desktop PC, laptop, iPad or smartphone. In the hands of skilled WordPress developers like LaunchDM, complex custom responsive themes can be created to give your users the best possible experience.
You will find everything from one page websites to huge international news sites and other large enterprises built on the WordPress platform, including Time Inc., The New York Times, Sony Music, CNN, eBay, Xerox, Mercedes-Benz, The Smithsonian, and Aqua Hotels & Resorts. Even the world’s fastest man has a site running on WordPress! For more examples, check out the WordPress.org Showcase.
