Simply Put, WordPress Is the Best CMS for SEO
WordPress has invariably been growing ever since his release in 2003. These below are some impressive milestones and unique characteristics:
- As of April 2019, WordPress was used by more than 60 million websites, including 33.6% of the top 10 million websites, according to Wikipedia sources.
- WordPress prides itself on being a ‘free software’ that is ‘open source’ to all users.
- Open source means you are free to modify and redistribute the source code under certain conditions.
- WordPress operates under a General Public License (GPL), an open source license that allows users to study, run, share, and modify the software.
- Individual installations of WordPress can be protected with security plugins such as Securi, services such as Cloudflare which helps prevent DDoS attacks, and premium hosting services such as WP Engine, which is the most reliable platform for WP.
- WordPress has a popular eCommerce plugin called WooCommerce; although we prefer to work with Shopify for store development.
- WordPress has a block editor named Gutenberg.
- WordPress has a five star privacy rating from the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
However, none of those are the top reasons behind our fond preference for WordPress.
The reasons that make WordPress stand out as a CMS for us is its efficiency for SEO, scalability, and multilingual availability.
