Let's first explain what this article is. This is a direct response to an article I found published on SearchEngineJournal.com on January 26, 2020 titled, “Why WordPress is the Best CMS for SEO”. After reading the article I became rather angry. Angry at the fact that such a reputable online magazine such as SEJ would publish such an article. But even more angry at the lack of foundation for such a bold statement. Claims like this that are published on a platform such as SEJ have the potential of leading readers blindly due mainly because of the publisher's reputation.
The How and Why of the Website Maintenance Question
There are tens of millions websites on the internet today that are constructed using a Content Management System (CMS) of some sort. Joomla, Wordpress, Drupal and proprietary systems like Wix, SquareSpace are all examples of a CMS. These systems require regular maintenance for several reasons. Keeping the core software as well as any installed plugins and extensions up to date is critically important for the integrity of these platforms. If your website is constructed using one of these popular platforms, it would be very wise to consider some type of service or maintenance plan. (Wix, SquareSpace and others maintain their own software).
Consider Whether or Not a Content Management System (CMS) Is Right For You
Every business or organization wants a website to showcase their services and or products. Lately it seems a good majority of those looking for website design also want to be able to manage their own content.This is something a content management system can provide.
