The debate is still up in the air but the fact is, Google loves WordPress blogs. And they're the perfect marketing avenue for your affiliate marketing websites. Why? Because they're EASY!
WordPress blogs are easy to set up –
Most web hosting providers offer WordPress installation with just a few clicks of a button. Once installed, widgets make it easy to configure your blog any way you want – also with the click of a button. In most cases, unless you want to get really creative, you'll never have to touch the editor or change a single bit of code. Because WordPress is so easy to install and configure, it's also easier for the bots to read your information without having to trip over messy and inaccurate coding.
WordPress blogs are easy to update –
WordPress blogs have an easy to use, WYSIWYG text screen. Font sizes, headers, images, links – everything can be handled right from the dashboard – again, with a simple click of a button. Images can even be tagged, categories set, tags selected – anything you want to do can be done from the dashboard. Again – no messy coding problems makes it easier for the bots to find their way around your blog and then return that information to the searchers.
WordPress blogs make it easy for your readers to interact –
WordPress blogs have the easiest to use comment system already installed. You can allow or disallow comments from the dash, you can configure approvals and avatars – all from the dash. And your readers simply have to type when they want to comment. They do not have to go through any time consuming registration process, they do not have to choose a user name, they can just comment. And the easier it is for them to comment, the more apt they are to do it. Google loves to see comment activity on a blog and rewards it with a boost up the index.
WordPress blogs are easy for the bots to read –
As stated above, one of the main reasons that Google loves WordPress blogs is because they're so much easier to read. Each new design that comes out looks to have neater coding than the design before. SEO is coded into headers and footers. Security is coded in, too. All of this makes it much easier for the bots to scan your blog and get that information to the searchers.
Without you're an expert coder yourself, and you have the time to spare coding the perfect blog, get some of that Google love for your blog and install WordPress.
