Today we are going to talk about the CMS (Content Management System, or Content Management System) that has been gaining more and more space in the creation of websites on a daily basis due to its practicality, stability, security, and variety of customization options and breadth. In this special article, we will introduce you to some of the main advantages of using the WordPress system. Check it out in full!
What is a CMS?
A CMS is a system with the basic and essential features to manage content and create a website and that’s exactly what WordPress is! Creating a website through it, we only need to worry about the content, because the programming and the more technical part are all ready.
This was one of the reasons for the ‘boom’ of information on the internet as we have in the last decade. Today, practically anyone with no knowledge of technology can create a blog or a website with WordPress and start producing content on the Internet.
Now let’s get to the main subject of this article, see below the main advantages of using WordPress:
Without a doubt, the WordPress interface is certainly one of the main reasons for its success. It’s very intuitive and easy to learn. With a few Google searches, anyone is able to publish content and even install a new plugin.
Plugins, Themes and Widgets
One of the great advantages of WordPress is the multitude of plugins, themes, and widgets that exist. Plugins add functionality to the ready-made system and can make it much easier, and among the features that can be added are resources for creating e-commerce (virtual stores), social networks, and forums, for example.
Similarly, widgets also make it easy to add small features to the site. Website layout also does not require great design knowledge. Because the variety of themes available on the Internet makes it possible to create a website with a professional look very easily. Just look for the ideal theme for your business/idea, download it, then upload the file to WordPress and activate it. All very simple to do.
WordPress has a structure that facilitates the organization of SEO-friendly content. And with the use of plugins, most technical jobs are easy to apply. Some examples of important SEO settings and functionality that can be easily done with WordPress are:
- Custom meta tags for all pages.
- Configuration of friendly URLs;

- Creation of dynamic XML Sitemap;

- Author tagging linking author profile to Google+;
