WordPress is a Content Management System (CMS) used to develop many of the top websites on the internet. Nolen Walker offers custom WordPress websites to all of our customers. We have more than one WordPress developer on staff, who will help turn your vision for a new website into a reality. Here are some characteristics of a WordPress website:
- Aesthetics: WordPress themes can be designed and customized to fit any visual for a website
- Blogging: WordPress makes blogging simple, which is why it’s often mischaracterized as only a “blog” when that is actually just one aspect of its capabilities
- Management: The WordPress dashboard makes it easy to add and edit content within pages, blogs, and plugins’
- Plugins: WordPress allows for the use of plugins, which can be designed and developed open source, and then added by anyone to their website
- SEO: WordPress is known to have high SEO potential because of its blogging, and linking capabilities
WordPress is not the only CMS on the market. Others like Drupal, and Joomla are serviceable, but they don’t have the ease of use, and customer support of WordPress. Because WordPress is open source, it is easy to customize it, as well as take advantage of computer developers all over the world with plugin sharing.

WordPress.org vs WordPress.com
Some people become confused when they hear about WordPress.com because it doesn’t look like the website they identify as WordPress. WordPress.com is actually a separate WordPress venture designed for bloggers who wish to exclusively blog rather than manage an entire website and domain. Below we will illustrate some of the differences between .org and .com:
- Hosted on hosting sites like GoDaddy.com or HostGator.com
- Full customization
- Works directly for SEO
- Blogging service
- Hosted by WordPress.com
- Limited customization
- Will not contribute to website SEO
WordPress.com is attractive because it’s free and offers a variety of themes for a quick setup and easy blogging template. With that said, .com does not have the capability to serve as a main website for service companies. Instead, WordPress.org will be the CMS you require to build a great company website, and generate leads online. WordPress.org also comes with an internal blog, which allows companies to post regular blogs, all of which will contribute to their SEO.
