Why WordPress Is the Web’s Favorite CMS

WordPress is not only one of the most popular content management systems in the world, it currently powers around 40% of all the websites on the internet. One of the most scalable platforms on the market, it’s become the CMS of choice for the majority of publishers.

As more online content creators flock to the web each day, there are a number of reasons why WordPress tends to be the CMS of choice for publishers. It provides everything you’ll need to ensure that your business doesn’t get lost beneath a mountain of competitor sites on Google.

Some of the main attractions of WordPress for publishers are that it’s incredibly flexible while offering a wide range of themes and features.

Whether you regularly share articles, blogs, videos, or any other type of media, WordPress provides the resources every publisher needs to attract more visitors and enhance publication performance.

Powerful, Intuitive Editorial Interface

WordPress boasts a highly intuitive interface that makes sharing content quick and easy for you and your editorial, content, and marketing teams.

Integration and Plugin Options

WordPress offers over 50,000 plugin options including officially endorsed plugins by market leaders like Apple News, AMP, and Facebook.

Keep Technology Simple

While a simple Google search will present you with plenty of sleek new content management systems, WordPress has been around for over a decade and comes with the benefit of ready solutions to any problems you may potentially face.

Increase Your Google Traffic

WordPress offers a number of SEO plugins and themes that can help you hone your SEO skills and, in turn, improve your optimization rank on search engines like Google.

Access To Established Developers

If you ever want to hire internal or external talent, WordPress allows you the option to search for new hires through their established pool of skilled developers.

Strong Hosting Ecosystem

WordPress has an impressive hosting ecosystem that's designed to rapidly handle large volumes of traffic.

FAQs About Content Management Systems

A content management system or CMS is a software application that helps users create, manage, and maintain their own websites. It allows either single or multiple users to publish, edit, and arrange content while automatically handling complex technological concerns like coding. While there are many CMS options available, we recommend WordPress for publishers due to its intuitive, easy-to-use interface.

If you work in the world of digital publishing, then we don’t have to tell you how important it is to have a strong online presence. Your website will affect every part of your company, from sales and merchandising to marketing and development.

The primary function of a CMS is to simplify the technical aspects of creating and maintaining a website. It allows users to skip over coding concerns and focus on generating more traffic, advertising their services to increase revenue and optimizing content to up the odds that readers will subscribe.

If you sell e-books, magazines, journals, or other digital media, then a CMS can not only increase your web traffic but can also make streamlining your products much easier. Rather than sending your customers to an external payment page, all you have to do is install an “eCommerce” or “shopping cart” plug-in. Once it’s customized and configured, your customers will be able to explore your products and purchase them over your own network.

The good news is that you probably already have everything you need to use a CMS. If you already have a website, then you can integrate it into a CMS or simply design a new page altogether. Rest assured that there’s no need to have a specific type of computer to use a CMS. All you really need is a modern browser and a dependable internet connection.

This largely depends on both your unique needs and which CMS you chose to use. WordPress, for instance, offers a variety of different plans from choosing a self hosted solution to a WordPress Enterprise VIP plan that can be more customized to your needs. Our WordPress for Publishing partner will be able to advise accordingly.
