WordPress has been around since 2003 and is the most popular open source blogging software on the world. In the last few years, WordPress has become the most used CMS (content management system for even non-blogging websites. Here we are sharing a number of key benefits of WordPress over other CMS.
Easy To Use
WordPress is very easy to use and has a very user friendly interface. Adding new pages, blog posts, images, on a regular basis is a breeze and can be done smoothly.
Manage Website From Anywhere
WordPress is browser-based. We can login to the dash board of admin panel from anywhere in the world over a computer or tab which is connected to internet and can manage our site.
No Need For HTML Editing And FTP Software
WordPress is a self-contained system and it does not require HTML editing software. We can create a new page or blog post, format text, upload images ,upload documents, video files, image galleries, etc and edit them. All these can be done without using any additional HTML or FTP software.
WordPress Sites Are SEO Friendly
The code behind WordPress is very clean and simple, making it easy for search engines to read and index a site’s content. Also we can add Meta tags and keywords to every page, posts, and images can have its own description, and title allowing for very precise search engine optimization. We can also use tags to further enhance our search engine optimization efforts.

WordPress acts as the engine for our website. The look and feel of the site can be fully customized using plugins or adding new themes. We can also edit the themes and plugins as per our requirements.
A Blog Is Built-In And Ready To Go

Setting up RSS, email subscriptions, commenting capabilities, and automatically adding the most recent or most viewed blog posts and blog archives to the pages of the site are very easy to set-up. Also we can add social media links easily to the pages so that the blog post can be shared to various social media platforms.
