WordPress is one of the most popular blogging tools available. But what many people don't know is that it  is  a powerful Content Management System (CMS) that can be used for more than just blogging. With  WordPress you can build a blog, a website, or both.

Top Five Reasons to Use WordPress for Your Small Business Website

   1. SEO - WordPress provides good search engine optimization (SEO) right out of the box. There are a  few  tweaks you need to make, but there are many seo benefits that WordPress provides for free. In fact  Google's  own Matt Cutts says WordPress is "made to do SEO well" in this video: Matt Cutts gives tips to  small  business owners.

   2. Content - it is easy to update content on your website without knowing HTML.  Do you hate the idea  of  having to learn to use a complex HTML editor tool like Dreamweaver? Do you have to "ask" your  webmaster  every time you want to make a small change to your website? Well no longer - once  WordPress is set up for  you, you can easily create new pages or edit existing pages using a simple rich  text editor.

   3. Extensions - There is a thriving ecosystem of developers creating themes and plug-ins - imagine free  design themes, or the ability to extend your website with polls, contact forms, ratings or hundreds of other  cool features without having to hire a web developer.

   4. Support - If you do have problems, or want to add very custom features, it is easy to find support and  developers who can help you. There are literally thousands of WordPress developers out there. And there  are  so many people writing about WordPress that help is only a Google search away!

   5. One-click-installation - Quick installs are provided by many hosting providers, including Bluehost,  1and1, iPowerWeb and GoDaddy.
