Around the same time, WordPress hosted almost 15% of the top one million websites in the world!

48 of Technorati’s top 100 blogs use WordPress. Wordpress is 18th in the rankings of most popular websites in Britain. Wordpress has a higher share of the CMS market than the rest of the CMS providers combined

BTEC Certified WordPress Training

 

Websites which use the WordPress Content Management System (CMS) as the basis of their site now account for one in every four newly registered domains in the United States, and 22% of all websites worldwide. Why though is it that webmasters are beginning to prefer to use this free software over some of some of the more common web design systems such as Dreamweaver, Drupal and Joopla?

 

There are many benefits to using the WordPress CMS as the foundation for website design. Firstly WordPress is search engine friendly, much more so than other web design software which use a lot of often complicated html coding.

 

In addition to being search engine friendly WordPress is also incredibly user friendly, and this is what has made it so popular and where its beauty lies. The reason why WordPress is so user friendly is because it has been set up using an Open Source license which means that people are free to work on the software and amend or improve upon it for the benefit for everyone using it. This means that WordPress is the most consistently up to date content management system available.

 

With web design programmes like Dreamweaver falling to the wayside there is a growing demand for web designers with qualifications in WordPress website design.

 

It is now an essential requirement for anyone considering applying for a job within a web design company to be able to show that they have a recognised qualification in WordPress website design, or have undergone some recognised form of WordPress training. Additionally, anyone who is thinking of starting their own freelance web design business will find that having a qualification in WordPress design will encourage potential clients to hire your services.

 

WordPress training is not just for those who aim to have a career within the web design industry. It is also ideal for anybody who wants to build and maintain their own website, whether they are a small business owner or someone who wants to set up a personal blog. Good WordPress training makes setting up a website on your own both easy and enjoyable.
