Why Choose WordPress?
Companies looking to redevelop their websites may find themselves presented with an array of CMS options, including open-source software such as Joomla!, Drupal, and WordPress, as well as commercial systems. For many companies, knowing which CMS to choose can be daunting.
According to Brock, “When it comes to website development, we find WordPress to be a very flexible tool that allows us to build custom solutions tailored to the needs of our clients and their brands.”
Brock explains that there are five main reasons why clients should consider WordPress for their content management system.
— Search engines love WordPress. If you’re looking to improve your rankings in Google, Yahoo! and other search engines, WordPress is a great tool to give your rankings a boost.
— WordPress is easy to use. If you can use MS Word, you’ll be comfortable using the WordPress interface to update your company’s website and blog.

— WordPress plug-ins offer lots of great features. The WordPress developer community has built thousands of plug-ins to expand the functionality of your site.
