You may not realize it, but the majority of websites you visit are powered by WordPress. In the Content Management Solution (CMS) space, four out of every five websites is built on WordPress. Another way to look at it — WordPress is like the Google of CMS options. A small percentage of developers do use Joomla or Drupal to create custom pages, but WordPress still garners the most attention. And with thousands of themes — the framework of a site — to choose from, you never lack options.
In a nutshell, here’s why WordPress dominates the market:
1. WordPress is Easy
Navigating behind the scenes of your WordPress site is relatively easy. You can make minor design changes, update content, or change the wireframe without a lot of heavy lifting. Companies often choose WordPress because they can manage their website after it has been launched without having to call IT support for every minor change.
2. WordPress is Accessible
Because it’s so prevalent, you can typically access WordPress sites from almost any mobile device. Whether you’re on your phone or tablet, or logging on from a PC in another country, a WordPress website will be clean and easy to navigate. The ubiquity of WordPress also ensures that any bugs or updates that need to be implemented will be handle expeditiously. Most blogs are written on WordPress, too.
3. WordPress is Efficient
As an open source platform, developers can alter code as needed to meet design needs. Altering templates, adding plug-ins, improving functionality — all are possible if you know how to code. As a result of this flexibility, WordPress is also more cost-effective than other more customized solutions.
