Once you’ve got your first blog setup, you’ll NEVER want to go back to old fashioned HTML!… here’s why...

WordPress blogs are dymanic – standard HTML is not!

If your site consisted of 100+ pages and you want to change a meta tag, the location of your header image, your site title, or anything else, you’d have to manually go through each file and edit it. With WordPress blogs however, because pages are dynamically created from component files i.e. header.php and footer.php, you will only have to edit one file.

This is a massive time saver and very re-assuing knowing that any mistakes or modifications can be taken care of quickly.

WordPress blogs can be easily re-designed – HTML design is limited to your HTML knowledge. That might sound like an obvious statement but let me explain.

With HTML if you want to add a menu in your header so visitors can navigate easily, you’ll have to first do some reseach on Google to find the javascript code and then tinker with it to get it working how you want.

Depending on the complexity of the menu, and the number of pages you have to update this can take a while. With WordPress however, your menu is updated dynmically with every new page you create. Your menu will vary depending on the theme you have installed, but even the default theme has this in-built function.

WordPress is search engine optimized. Standard HTML is not. This is probably common knowledge by now and even if you don’t fully understand WordPress you’ll have to admit that there are a lot of blogs appearing on the first page of Google for almost any search term you enter.

Now there are many features within WordPress that make it so lovable by search engines like Google such as hyperlinked post titles matching your page name, hyperlinked tags, hyperlinked categories, descriptions within the catergories, organized h1, h2, and h3 tags, and so much more. With HTML however, you have to do this manually.

If you have say 10 sites on your page with a sidebar linking to other pages, you’d have to manually hyperlink each of those ten links. Then you’d have to repeat the process for each page. Even if you were copying and pasting, it’s still an inefficient way of working when a platform such as WordPress can do this all dynamically for you.

 

HTML has no user-friendly way of installing scripts. WordPress however makes script-installing easy with it’s plugin system. It’s simply a case of browsing for what you want, choosing it and activating it and it’s suddenly added into your WordPress admin. No standard HTML site can do this unless there’s some serious modification done. But again, why bother going through the hassle when it can simplified?

I think you’re starting to see the power and advantages WordPress has over standard HTML. And it’s no wonder that they’re getting more and more popular.

no matter what you want to use your blog for, you’ll benefit in some way! Guaranteed!
