Top 7 Benefits of a Word Press Blog

Word Press is the best platform for starting a blog as it includes a large community from which you can get help any time you need it.

1. No need to learn html

WordPress has an editor built into it that functions similar to Microsoft Word however it’s a little simpler.

2. Keep content separate from design

This allows you to change the design whenever you like without affecting the content.

3. Create unlimited pages

WordPress is database driven. This means you can easily add 1000s of pages to the database.

4. Choose from many templates

There are 100s of free and paid templates to choose from. These can be customized to suit your business web site. You can also get a custom built blog by hiring an experienced web designer.

5. Search engine friendly

Word Press blogs can be easily optimized for the search engines using plugins. Posts on your blog are automatically pinged and RSS feeds are automatically submitted to RSS directories.

6. Integrate social media marketing

Blog posts can automatically be sent to social marketing sites (ie twitter, facebook etc) by installing the appropriate plugins.

7. Active forum support runs a very active community forum where you can ask questions related to the functioning of your Word Press Blog.
