Html site vs Wordpress, Which is Better?

Discussion in 'HTML & Website Design' started by tacitinc, Dec 29, 2012.

  1. #1
    I have a couple of sites I want to get their ranking back to where it was before the last updates.
    2 of the sites are hand built html sites.
    Would it be more beneficial to leave them alone as html or convert to wordpress?
    Your input is greatly appreciated!

    Its always more beneficial to convert your site to wordpress, because once your site has been converted to wordpress, you can expand it using plugins and widgets and what not.
    But beware, wordpress has seriously bad security issues. One of my wordpress sites got hacked 7 times in 2 days.

    WordPress is a great platform. If you'll go with it will make your work easier (content update, SEO optimisation and more advantages) .
    The problem that can occure by changing to WordPress is the changes of the permalink structure and the time that Google will take to reindex them and rank in the search results.
    So, if you change to WordPress might take a while to get back to early position.

    On the long time I think WordPress will be a good choice.

    Even you got a older WordPress version installed, or using a plugin that contains malware code or something similar.

    Nope. I am using the latest version of WordPress, with all the plugins disabled. And the only ones I have enabled are from reputed sellers from codecanyon.

    I would prefer to choose WordPress to be the best and the easiest than HTML.
    In html the task is based on codes, but whereas in WordPress its so simple and easy to build a site.

    sure wordpress.
    if you make a html site you need to update every page when you need to edit something you will open all html pages but wordpress is so nice and for the seo has a ping system on every edit you do.

    If you need to make a dynamic website with often updates - then only wordpress..
    If you want ot make some static site (like homepage) - then pure HTML is better.

    Thank you so much for the quick response!
    I suppose the second question would be is do you know anywhere that has a step by step tutorial on the fastest / easiest way to convert the site over to wordpress? Will i have to do it manually or is there a program i can use?

    wordpress is better then HTML because wordpress used various types of plugins, dynamic themes, user friendly interface, or also optimize for SEO (search engine optimization). or also user can easily publish your posts with post editor. VS in html all of these features not easily available. So i suggest you go with wordpress.

    Html coded site is more friendly to seo in comparison to WordPress. Its easy to rank html coded site in search engines.

    Better to go for WordPress, as plethora of WordPress plugins are there that can help you in creating an optimized website to get back the rankings you have lost.

    WordPress integration can be done in three ways:
    1. Manually
    2. With Tools
    3. Appointing professional.

    Now it is upto you, which one you prefer. According to me, third one is the best to get the most out of your website.

    Hope this help!

    Changing to wordpress will not improve your SEO. Changing your SEO tags do that ;)
