Most people recognize Wordpress as a world class blogging platform. What most people don’t realize is that Wordpress can be used to quickly and easily set up a website. In other words, the blogging platform doubles as a simple website CMS.
Unlike many of the other CMS solutions available, Wordpress is relatively easy to install and requires very little technical expertise to use. Functionality and features are robust and flexible, yet the average user is greeted by a simple interface and intuitive design. What’s most impressive is that the hosted version of Wordpress is free for all to use.
Personally, I like the subtle, built-in marketing factor that Wordpress offers. Page and URL structure bode really well for search engines. I’ve had a lot of success leveraging the Wordpress platform for SEO purposes.
The point is that Wordpress can (and should, in my opinion) be used for simple websites. It is easy to install and configure. Furthermore, editing, publishing, and marketing are simplified as well.
