How To Use And Profit from
Wordpress Websites And Blogs

WordPress was initally developed to be used by bloggers as a blogging platform.

Since then it’s popularity has grown and it is being used more and more every day for regular websites and combined websites and blogs.

There are may reasons for this and I’ll list below some of the the reasons that I use WordPress for most of my new websites, and why I recommend it to my Clients.

The Benefits Of WordPress As A Website Platform

A WordPress platform is highly recommended for a number or reasons, here are just a few:-

  • A WordPress-based website is SEO friendly and can easily be optimised for the search engines See some of the websites I have built and promoted to the top of Google.
  • The content can easily be added to or edited by the owner from a Control Panel. No separate software or technical knowledge is required. There are videos below showing how easy this ‘Content Management System’ is to use.
  • The functionality of the site can easily be extended by the use of what are termed ‘plugins’. If a new feature is needed on the website then there is probably a plugin that can provided it.
  • The layout and look of a WordPress website is determined by the ‘Theme’. There are many ready-made Themes available and most of them are free. You can very quickly set up a great-looking website in minutes just by installing a Theme.
  • WordPress is being constantly improved and updated with great new features.

The Disadvantages Of A WordPress Platform

  • If you use toomany plugins, they can slow the site down
  • Not easy to format Tables and Graphic Images
  • Can’t be used for Database Driven websites with complex search boxes, e.g. like rightmove.co.uk
  • Because WordPress is being constantly improved and updated with great new features, it is necessary to upgrade on the website periodicallly. Not a great issue, but the plugins then become out of date and you have to update those also. Not a big issue, but some admin overhead you have to attend to.
