7 Most Important Reasons to Use WordPress in 2022

One of the most often queries we hear is, “Why should I use WordPress?” Isn’t my website sufficient? Why should I migrate from another platform to WordPress?

One of the most popular misconceptions regarding WordPress is that it is only used for blogging.

WordPress, on the other hand, is so much more.

While WordPress began as a blogging platform, it has now grown into a full website builder and content management system (CMS).

The nicest thing about WordPress is that it’s simple to use and versatile enough to create a variety of websites. That is the primary reason for WordPress’s popularity.

WordPress, in fact, runs 43% of all websites on the internet, according to a recent poll.

WordPress is used by millions of people all around the world. It supports over 53 languages and is used to power hundreds of multilingual websites.

Open-source software, on the other hand, has a considerably higher chance of lasting a long time.

This is due to the fact that it is open-source software, which means it is not maintained by a single person or corporation. Even if WordPress is no longer available, anyone may fork its source and start it under a new name in a couple of minutes.

WordPress does not have a CEO, which is one of the lesser-known truths about the platform. The WordPress foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to ensuring that WordPress continues to thrive, protects the term WordPress.

Let’s look at why you should build your website with WordPress.

  1. WordPress is Free and always will be – WordPress is a free software. It means you may download, install, use, and alter it as you see fit. It may be used to make any type of website. You can use WordPress to build from simplest blog to complex ecommerce websites. Although the WordPress software is free, you will need a domain name and web hosting to get it up and running.
  2. WordPress Is really Easy to Use
    • WordPress, although being the most flexible and powerful platform, is relatively simple to use for newcomers. It has a straightforward interface with many menu options provided on the sidebar. You can quickly make articles and pages, change the look of your website, add navigation menus, and more.
    • Absolute beginners may easily manage their own websites without any technological difficulties thanks to WordPress.
    • First and foremost, there are updates. WordPress publishes core WordPress updates on a regular basis, which you may install with a single click. WordPress plugins and themes, which issue their own updates, are in the same boat.
    • There are several great WordPress backup plugins available (many of them are free). They let you set up automatic backups and save them to a cloud storage service like Google Drive or Dropbox.
    • As a newbie, you might find it intimidating at first. However, being the most comprehensive WordPress reference site for beginners, we can safely tell you that you’ll get the hang of things quickly.
  3. WordPress Is Completely Customizable
    • The majority of WordPress users aren’t web designers or programmers. In reality, the majority of users begin using WordPress with no prior understanding of website design. WordPress is the ideal choice for non-techies because there are hundreds of free website layouts (themes) to select from. For almost any type of website (whether it’s a blog, a commercial website, or an online store), there is a great WordPress theme.
    • Because many WordPress themes come with their own options panel, you can change colours, add your logo, modify the background, make gorgeous sliders, and completely personalize it to your needs without writing any code.
    • Plugins may also be used to add unique functionality to your WordPress site. WordPress plugins are essentially applications for your website that allow you to add sophisticated features like analytics, contact forms, and a membership section, among other things.
  4. WordPress Is Safe and Secure
    • WordPress is a very safe and secure platform for running a website since it was built with security in mind. However, there is still a lot you can do to make your website more safe from hackers, malware, and other threats. See our beginner’s WordPress security guide for more information.
    • I recommend to use Sucuri to guard against typical risks like brute force assaults and malware.
    • Sucuri Scanner, a free WordPress security plugin, may be used to ensure that your site is secure.
  5. WordPress Is SEO Friendly
    • Even the finest website in the world would fail if it does not receive any traffic or visitors. WordPress, fortunately, was created with search engine traffic in mind.
    • WordPress is built with semantic markup and high-quality code. In plain English, this implies that Google and other search engines adore WordPress.
    • This is why WordPress sites tend to rank higher in search engines than non-WordPress sites.
    • I propose utilizing a WordPress SEO plugin to improve your site for even more visitors.
    • All in One SEO is one of the top rated SEO plugin, with over 3 million websites using it. It’s simple to use, but it’s also really strong.
  6. Community Support
    • WordPress is supported by a large community of users, developers, and small companies. They all assure that WordPress is here to stay for the long term as a community.
  7. WordPress 5.9 is new and fresh
    • Blocks + intrinsic web design.
    • Navigation menus.
    • Interface for theme. json.
    • Refining editing flows for block themes.
    • New default theme.
    • Additional design tools.
