Famous Brand Websites Using WordPress

WordPress is Good for Web Design

WordPress is the most popular CMS in the world. The full name of CMS is Content Management System, it is a software system for people to create, manage and modify the website content without going too deep into the coding. Why is WordPress so popular? First, it is free. Anyone can download WordPress software from the Internet free because it is an open-source software. Not only you can use it for free, you can even modify it freely. Thousands of developers enhance WordPress simultaneously therefore it is one of the most frequently updated software in the world.

One very good example of open-source software is Linux, an operating system. It runs on personal computers, servers, and even smart devices. The core (or Kernel) of Android is from Linux. We can see how organic and vital an open-source software is here. 

Another advantage of WordPress is its flexibility. Due to the open-source nature, everyone can develop any specific function in forms of a plugin (software based on WordPress). There is no private software company able to develop such a huge amount of plugins as WordPress.

Marketers love WordPress as this is a very SEO-friendly CMS. Search engines like Google can crawl a WordPress website easily to index the pages. This helps drawing free traffic to the website for further conversion. Thus, a WordPress website is good for online marketing.
