Benefits of Using Wordpress to Power Your Organization

Benefits of Wordpress
WordPress has been around since 2003 and is the most popular blogging software. Over the last few years, WordPress has also become the content management software of choice for non-blogging websites. Here are the top reasons why WordPress is so popular and why you might want to consider switching to a WordPress platform for your organization's website.

1. Ease of Use

WordPress is very easy to use and has an intuitive interface.  Adding new pages, blog posts, images, etc. on a regular basis is a breeze and can be done quickly.  Because the technology is so simple, time spent on formatting is greatly reduced.

2. Manage Your Website from Any Computer

Wordpress is browser-based. You can login from any Internet connected computer and manage your site.

3. No HTML Editing or FTP Software Required

Wordpress is a self-contained system and does not require HTML editing software (such as Adobe Contribute or Dreamweaver). 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 or FTP software.

4. Search Engines Love Wordpress Sites

The code behind Wordpress is very clean and simple, making it easy for search engines to read and index a site’s content. In addition, each page, post, and image can have its own Meta tag keywords, description, and title, and be optimized for specific keywords, allowing for very precise search engine optimization.  You can also use tags to further enhance your search engine optimization efforts.

5. You Have Control of Your Site

No more waiting for your web designer to make simple updates to your site. With Wordpress, you have control of nearly every aspect of your site and can easily make those simple updates yourself.

6. The Design of Your Website is 100% Customizable

Wordpress acts as the engine for your website. The look and feel of the site can be 100% customized so your brand can shine through on your site and provide a unique experience to your visitors.

7. A Blog is Built-in and Ready to Go

Since Wordpress was originally created as a blogging platform, blogging capabilities are built-in and are easy to integrate, if desired. Setting up RSS / email subscriptions to your blog, commenting capabilities, and automatically adding the most recent blog posts to other pages of the site (your home page, for example) are also very simple to set-up, and help to extend your company’s reach and make your site more dynamic and interactive.

8. Extend the Functionality of Your Site with Plugins

Want to add an event calendar, video gallery, Twitter Feed, Facebook Fan Box, and more to your site? WordPress makes this possible with plugins, most of which are free or very reasonably priced.

9. Your Site Can Grow as Your Business Grows

WordPress sites are very scalable. You can have hundreds of thousands of pages or blog posts on your site and the performance of the site will not be compromised in the least.

10. Have Multiple Users

As an administrator of a WordPress site, you can set-up multiple users for the website and assign access levels and capabilities to each user.

THEMES:
Wordpress users may install and switch between themes. Themes allow users to change the look and functionality of a Wordpress website and they can be installed without altering the content or health of the site. Every Wordpress website requires at least one theme to be present and every theme should be designed using Wordpress standards with structured PHP, valid HTML and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). Themes may be directly installed using the Wordpress "Appearance" administration tool in the dashboard or theme folders may be uploaded via FTP. The PHP, HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) and CSS code found in themes can be added to or edited for providing advanced features. Wordpress themes are in general classified into two categories: Free themes (wordpress.org) & Premium themes (Theme forest, Studio Press, Elegant Themes, cyber chimps etc.) All the free themes are listed in the Wordpress theme directory and premium themes should be purchased from marketplaces and individual Wordpress developers. Wordpress users may also create and develop their own custom themes if they have the knowledge and skill to do so. If Wordpress users do not have themes development knowledge then they may download and use free Wordpress themes from wordpress.org.

PLUGINS:
Wordpress plugin architecture allows users to extend the features and functionality of a website or blog. Wordpress has over 40,501 plugins available, each of which offers custom functions and features enabling users to tailor their sites to their specific needs. These customizations range from search engine optimization, to client portals used to display private information to logged in users, to content management systems, to content displaying features, such as the addition of widgets and navigation bars. But not all available plugins are always abreast with the upgrades and as a result they may not function properly or may not function at all.

Wordpress blog posts can be edited in HTML, using the visual editor, or using one of a number of plugins that allow for a variety of customized editing features.

Migration / wp-config.php:
Wordpress makes migration from one server to another relatively simple due to its use of a configuration file (wp-config.php, usually located in your root). This file controls the base settings for a Wordpress website including your database connection settings. Due to the use of a configuration file, migrating from one server to another can be accomplished by the following basic steps:

Webmaster settings enable you to configure some important things like Geographical target. If your blog or service is limited to one particular region, configure it for that. For example one of my client WordPress blog is for UK Web Development services, so I configured her blog Geographical target as UK. Same goes with your blog or service. If your blog targets globally, leave it as it is. WordPress take care of WWW and non-WWW though I suggest use Google webmaster tools to configure this setting as well. Crawl rate depends on how often you update your blog. I always leave it on Google, though if you update your blog many times a day or once in a week time, you might like to play with this setting as well.

Site link are the pages from your site and website which Google find useful and from my experience pages you link the most define your site links. Sometime Google add less useful posts or pages like disclaimer and privacy policy as site link. In this case you can use this feature of webmaster tool to configure your site links. You can’t add links to be included into your site links from here but you can always block unwanted links.

If you are ranking for a wrong keyword, your strategy should find the cause and try to show the related and useful keyword to search engine.
