    Re: Why is wordpress always said to be the best?

    Well, IMHO, it depends on what works for you and what would do the job better. However, the reason why most people prefer wordpress(I included) to blogspot are but not limited to:

    1). Wide array of Plug-ins
    2). Easily customizable
    3). You have total control(if you are using the self hosted wordpress)
    4).More professionals use it(I guess)

    Yeah it's the plugins, the updates, the ease of use, themes. So many good points about WordPress and that's why myself and others love it.

    WordPress isn't considered the best, it IS the best. It is so flexible and customisable that you can do pretty much anything with a WordPress install.

    I wrote an article about some of the exciting things you can do with WordPress:

    Dean, in as much as I prefer wordpress to blogger(which I still use). I still don't think it is fair to compare the self hosted wordpress on wordpress.org to blogger.

    I agree that the comparison to blogger needs to stop. It has been discussed a million times now. Wordpress may be the best, but that doesn't mean Blogger or other CMS are absolute junk. I know of some Internet marketers who still earn decent income from their blogger blogs. The most important thing is that you know what you are doing.

    WordPress and Blogger are just the same as long as you trust in the deplorable free WordPress hosting service.

    To get the most from WP, it's necessary install it yourself on your own hosting space to get full control over it and avoid that WordPress delete a blog that has taken time and effort to build up for no reason at all. In this matter, at least blogger doesn't delete blogs for no reason.

    Now, I believe WordPress is over-estimated, it's a good script but not one of the seven wonders. It's popularity mostly resides in the fact that it was created with the lazy webmaster in mind (its famous 5 minutes installation) and obviously this blog publishing platform benefited from developers and designers that have created countless plugins and themes.

    However there are other options that may be used with advantage, in example custom coding. This way you avoid to be "just one of the crowd," easily identifiable by the WP prefix that WordPress coders deliberately put into their coding files and directories prefixes.

    They said this is done to keep "consistency" but if you look behind, their real intentions were gain the power they actually have by branding all sites that use WordPress in their own favor, thus the reason the code is free.

    It's very easy to use and it can look very pretty and professional. Plus, I've seen lots of good sites use it so doesn't that mean something?

    As for the others, it can probably be good if you know how to use it. I just don't have the time these days to try, sadly.

    It's been proven as being far more stable than any of it's closest competitors. That's not to say the others aren't reliable, but when something like Wordpress is able to power such a huge chunk of the web, that speaks to how dependable it is and flexible.

    The reason why WordPress is the best is because you can do more with it. It has tons of features and gives you free will to do what you want. You can make a business website with WordPress and not just some simple blog.

    Re: Why is wordpress always said to be the best?

    I will be honest in saying that I do not necessarily think Wordpress is the best. It is my preferences because it is so easy to use. There are some great templates to be used for free. There are others that are inexpensive. I find it easy to edit and add to my blog or even to create a website.

    I wouldn't say it is the best platform for building websites with, but it is the best for people without too much knowledge of coding. Joomla can also do great things but there is a pretty steep learning curve for newbies. Wordpress is popular though meaning lots of info is available if you need help or extras.

    Wordpress has a variety of plugins we can choose from that makes it easier for newbies to build their websites. it is also a good platform to start your blog as the system allows you transport your content if you want to transfer to a self-hosted and new registered domain name.

    I can give you too many reason that I find Wordpress better above all other platforms. But the most important of them all is that wordpress blogs are easily to be found in search engine results. I hardly find any blogger blog or skyrock blog while searching or researching in my total experience.
