In 2020 WordPress was powering 35% of all websites and now in 2021 they have jumped to 39.5%! Why is that? WordPress is superior in user experience, mobile usability, security, speed, and SEO when compared to other website building platforms.
One of the biggest reasons WordPress is used by so many is because of the user experience. “WordPress’s themes and plugins work together to make websites professional, user-friendly, and attractive.” Says Julia McCoy from the Search Engine Journal.
It is no secret that the use of mobile devices has increased over time, but according to experts it has gone up 222% in the last five years! This means that it is very important for websites to be optimized for mobile devices. Most WordPress themes are optimized for mobile devices and usually don’t require any extra steps to make your site mobile friendly, it’s already done for you!
Speed is a crucial factor for websites. Having a slow site will frustrate users and will lower your Google search engine results pages (SERPs). WordPress has performance plugins that can clean your database, compresses your images and cache your site. All of which helps increase the overall speed of your website making your users and Google happy!
Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
Lastly but certainly not least, SEO! Oh, and yes, you guessed it, WordPress has great plugins for this too! These SEO plugins walk you through every step to make sure your content and your website are optimized for search engines. Not only that but WordPress has SEO-Friendly themes already prepared for your convenance!
