WordPress has been around since 2003 and is the most popular blogging software on the market. Over the last few years, WordPress has also become the content management software of choice for non-blogging websites.

Here are the top 10 reasons why WordPress is so popular and why you might want to consider switching to a WordPress platform for your company’s website.


1. Ease of Use

Adding new pages, blog posts, images, etc. on a regular basis is very easy and can be done relatively quickly.  


2. Manage Your Website from Any Computer

WordPress is browser-based. You can login from any browser anywhere in the world. Even using handheld devices.


3. No HTML Editing

WordPress does not require HTML editing. You can create a new page or blog post, format text, upload images (and edit them), upload documents, video files, image galleries, etc. all without the need for additional HTML.


4. Search Engines Love WordPress Sites

The code behind WordPress is very clean and simple. Each page, post, and image can have its own meta tag keywords, description, and title, and be optimized for specific keywords.


5. Control of Your Site

No more waiting for your web designer to make simple updates to your site. With WordPress, you have control.


6. Customizable

The look and feel of the WordPress site can be customized.


Since WordPress was originally created as a blogging platform, blogging capabilities are built-in and are easy to integrate. If you want to add additional functionalities, it is possible with a use of WordPress plugins.
