There are now 70 million sites that use WordPress as reported by a couple of websites. That’s up 50% from last year’s figure of 35 million! And if you missed this report, 48% of the top 100 blogs are actually developed in WordPress But this should come as no surprise at all. Here are the reasons why WordPress is the most popular tool for developing websites in this day and age.
1 – Easy to install. WordPress has been famous for its 5 minute install. And in most cases they have over delivered. A WordPress install can actually take less than 2 minutes!
2 – Easy to use. Once you have install WordPress, all you have to do is to start posting. And if you can use a popular word editor like MS Word, then you can use the WordPress editor.
3 – Easy to customize. AS long as you know HTML and CSS, you can do your own User Interface customization. And we have that type of tutorial here. Or, if you do not have these skills, then the most easiest way would be select another theme. This makes it appear that you have “customized” your website.
4 – Features can be added easily. You can add features just by installing and activating plug-ins. There’s no programming knowledge needed.
5 – Mobile web app ready. You can install plugins so that your WordPress website can be viewed well with mobile devices.
So, if your website is not developed in WordPress, now is the time to jump on the band wagon.
