Making a choice on what software on your membership site can be very confusing due to the many option available out there. I personally settled on WordPress due to several reasons. This software has many free and excellent designs or themes and its directory of add-ons or plug-ins makes this blogging software multifunctional. WordPress is also searchable via most of the search engines.
The design of your blog is what I referred to as the theme. WordPress popularity is partly due to the fact that it an endless list of themes from which you can choose and use in your blog free of any charge. Since things like the content, the user and the design can be separated on WordPress. You could fill your blog with numerous articles or content and still be able to radically change the design of the blog in a very easy way while not risking losing any content. Even all the comments made by user and the users themselves will remain intact when you change the blog’s appearance. Most of these themes actually look better than some of the professional websites that most likely cost a lot of money to put up and maintain.
Writing you post, comment posting by visitor and the integration of social networking sites has been made very easy with WordPress’ numerous plug-ins. No other blogging software can boast such a large collection of plug-ins as WordPress’. They is literally a plug-in for everything you will want to do with your WordPress blog; calendar plug-in, another one to help you charge access, yet another to show updates from twitter and even automatically update your twitter account on your behalf using your new blog post. Every imaginable thing is solved.
One more reason to choose WordPress as your membership site’s software is that blog are very well liked by Google. Like other membership software, you can choose to display only a small part of the blog in search engines and hide the rest of the site, especially the links. For some reason, Blogs are listed higher in Google search engine than the other WebPages. This gives you an advantage over others using different software sine it is also much easier for you to generate more content from your blog.
The casual observer would not notice them, but there are many goodies that are hidden in WordPress. One such thing is the ping concept. When someone makes a blog post it becomes Google listed in just a few minutes unlike some less advanced blog software which have to wait until the updated pages are spidered before appearing in search engines.
Choose WordPress as you membership site’s software because of its superior themes, plug-ins and advantages gained from increased web visibility. Claim a free video with all the steps of anything you will want to do with you membership site from: http://www.membershipcube.com/blog
