For the past year, Design the Planet has developed the vast majority of our websites using WordPress.  For those of you who don’t know about WordPress, it’s a well-designed, powerful, open-source, client maintained content management system (CMS). Whew, that’s a mouthful!

So what does that mean to you?  Simple. WordPress allows front-end developers (that’s us!) to create completely custom designs that will work seamlessly with a simple to use back-end interface for the client (that’s you) to make a multitude of updates.  If you know how to use Microsoft Word and surf the internet, you can use WordPress; it’s that easy!

Not only does this put the power of a completely updatable website in your hands, but it does wonders for your search rankings.  What’s the point of a website if your customers can’t find it? WordPress makes it really simple for you to make updates to your website so you can ensure that your website’s content is always up-to-date. Also,  WordPress is extremely efficient as at adds custom keyword and descriptions on a page by page basis, which greatly helps with organically boosting your search ranking.  Completely custom designs, updated and maintained by YOU, and better organic search ranking results. Why not WordPress it?
