WordPress is an open source platform that has been developed and maintained by volunteer consultants, web developers and designers who have an active interest in the platform. WordPress started in 2003 and now approximately 25% of all websites on the internet have been developed in WordPress. There are more than 45 000 plugins available and it now supports 95 different languages. WordPress was originally developed as a blogging tool, so writing and posting content is extremely easy and user friendly. Content writing and blogging is one of the biggest factors that help to get your website to rank on Google and for this reason SEO specialists love it.
