Why Use The WordPress Platform?

As a mom blogger, it just makes sense to teach my kids to blog. I mean why not. It’s simple enough to set up kid blogs and it will give them a little ‘real world’ education in the online world, as well as a chance to make some money of their own over time and practice some writing skills.

Affiliate products. It’s easy and free to sign up for affiliate programs related to your blog’s subject matter. Then all you do is display a small banner or text link to related products within the content of your blog. A variable percentage of people will click the link where they’re presented with a related offer. When someone purchases, you earn a commission of up to 75% through affiliate services like Clickbank.

Many of the premium WordPress themes available come complete with search engine optimisation marketing tools which are important for creating SEO friendly pages and articles, the ability to do this means that every post you create within your blog can be tweaked accordingly to rank well in the search engines.

The first thing a lot of you probably know already is that you should have the keyword or keyword phrase inside the URL of the website. This actually also goes for blogs as many bloggers target a separate keyword for every post they create. This is extremely easy to do with a wordpress platform as you can change the link while your writing your post.

If you need a website fast, you can get one done in as little as a week – sometimes less! If you hire a knowledgeable WordPress designer, and you have your logo and other graphics on hand, getting a custom site designed quickly is easy and surprisingly inexpensive.

I’ve heard as many stories of getting indexed fast and ranking high in search engines from both WordPress and Blogger users. As long as the content is good, the spiders will come.

What you should bear in mind with Blogger.com is that it’s not owned by you, and is not a big fan of commercially based content. You do run the risk of having your blog pulled by Google if they view you as being spammy.
