You have heard of WordPress, and you probably have heard that it is one of the easiest-to-use content management systems. But did you know that WordPress websites are also great for SEO? Here are four reasons why.
It’s Easy to Add and Schedule Content
We all know that content is king and the basis of SEO. With WordPress, adding content is a breeze. Not only that, but you can also schedule your entire week’s or month’s postings in advance. Adding images and videos, both which are important for SEO, is also easy.
It’s Easy to Edit Your Meta Data
Adding tags to your posts and editing your meta titles and descriptions couldn’t be easier with WordPress. Adding keywords to your tags helps Google find you. Brushing up your meta descriptions increases click-through rates, and adding keywords to your meta titles also helps for SEO.
Faster Loading Times
WordPress is a light and fast CMS. Slow loading times hurt your site’s page rank. With WordPress, you don’t have to worry about it that much.
An Abundance of Plugins
WordPress websites have an abundance of plugins that help for SEO. It’s not just the SEO plugins, like “All In One SEO” and Yoast. There are plugins that speed up your website and reduce loading times. There are plugins, such as Akismet and WP Spamshield, that stop bots from leaving spam comments (spam comments usually contain outbound links, which can be harmful for SEO). And there are plugins that allow your visitors to share your posts on social media, which is also beneficial for SEO.
