WordPress is known to be the best blogging platforms because of its simple use, powerful Search Engine Optimization and extensions are available free on Google. Being a WordPress user, I am very satisfied with its use because every extensions like plug-ins, WordPress themes, are available in a very huge amount of quantity. There are numerous websites on WordPress themes which are free and paid. It just needs an easy installation while you are starting a new blog. One can easily configure the settings of WordPress after installation.
When I step into the blogging world, I only thinks that blogging is a frequent posting of articles on your blog. In those earlier times, I was using a lot of extra and useless plug-ins which are simply not required. After some days of frequent posting and reading blog posts of Mr. Saurabh Rai who is the proud owner of (http://hitgrove.com) and (http://hitgrove.net), I started gaining a lot of knowledge about WordPress, Blogging and Search Engine Optimization.
The reason why I prefer WordPress is that it does not need any course to study like HTML coding and Dreamweaver that are needed to be studied for long time if you want to build a website or your personal blog.
The 3 main reasons are :
Best for Informative Portals
SEO Friendly :
WordPress is widely used by many bloggers and they are successful in their life. WordPress is SEO friendly because of the huge collection of WordPress SEO plugins. There are many useful SEO plugins that you can install on your blog for improving search engine rankings.
If you choose a different platform like Blogger or Tumblr , your blog might be lacking in Search Engine Optimization. These platforms are free but don’t have such powerful SEO like WordPress. Around 40% of the websites are made from WordPress and around 60% of the total blogs are build on this platform. Seeing its demand, you can easily determine its SEO.
Easy Management :
One who is just starting to build a blog must go with WordPress. The reason behind is its easy management and large collection of plugins and themes. Though it is having thousands of plugins and themes, including both useless and useful. You just need some of the plugins which are necessary for your blog in terms of your blog management.
These plugins will help you to take easy backup of your blog, easy sharing on social networking sites, securing your blog from hackers, easy ways to make your site free from spams, and all necessary things.
Best for Informative Tools :
This is a must factor that people should need to understand about WordPress. WordPress is the best tool for informative portals. Mind my words, I am saying you to make a website which provide information. If you are willing to make a website like Facebook, Twitter and any other social networking website, then you must go for other CMS. It is only preferable if you want to make a blog that will help readers in solving day to day problems and will only provide information for guidance and support.
You must start as informative portals rather than building a social network or something else. This is because it is easy to manage and you can even generate a lot of revenue with the informative portals. After a having sufficient knowledge, you can go for social networking sites or build a search engine.
