Sounds hilarious (I know) but it’s true.
Google favors WordPress websites and they tend to rank higher than other websites.

Like I had mentioned earlier it’s quite easy to incorporate a blog to your website if you’re using WordPress. I cannot stress enough the value content marketing adds to your overall digital strategy. Content is King. It doesn’t get any simpler than that.
Access To Thousands Of Plugins.
Plugins are a great way to add functionality to your website. WordPress gives you access to thousands of plugins that enable to add extra features to your website.
Caution is also advised on having too many WordPress plugins, which can have a negative impact on the user experience of your website such as; slow down your blog and cause security problems (especially when not regularly updated).
I recommend actively searching for plugins that enhance the user’s experience.

Access To Themes
I love themes so much. Themes allow you to style and take your website to whatever creative direction you want.
WordPress gives you access to millions of themes to choose from with a lot of the themes in the market being compatible with WordPress.
I use Headway Themes because it gives me so much room to grow my websites and customization is everything for me.
Choosing one theme over another can be confusing and tedious to be honest. That is why I wrote an entire article on what to look out for when choosing a website theme check it out here.
Finally, WordPress Is Flexible.
Most people when they are first starting out and setting up their website they barely have content or stuff to put in it.
This may mean fewer pictures, video, graphics or content. Later as your business grows your content, graphics, video and pictures on your website grow along with you.
WordPress allows your business to grow with you. You can also add as many themes and plugins as you wish. Basically you can start out small and expand without worry.
This takes a whole load off any entrepreneurs shoulder. In any business even online businesses, flexibility and reliability are everything and WordPress gives you both. [Tweet ” For your online businesses, flexibility and reliability
