    WordPress has been VERY good for me. My permalink structure has got me at page 1 for my targetted keyword in less than 2 weeks. I receive loads of traffic (today, there were 500+ people on the website at ONE time), but it didn't crash, nothing.

    Brilliant system according to me.

    Wordpress has been an absolute godsend to me for SEO. Most of my traffic comes organically from Google and I'd have to give most of the credit to Wordpress' SEO friendliness and for its easy-to-work permalink structure.

    I am using wordpress for my all six sites and it's working amazingly very fine. It has all plugins which i want to be in my site.

    I mostly like pinging service to search engines about new posts.

    For being free software. Wordpress if by far the best blogging script available.

    I use it on all of my blogs. Never had a problem yet.

    I think you are wrong, wordpress can take on most of the heavy stuff out there.

    wordpress is great, lots of plugins and themes, easy customization. I don't have huge traffic so i don't know that part, but so far its been good. Let me hit digg's front page someday then will find out if WP has any problems like that.

    Shawn's post is from 2006.

    I'm pretty sure the Wordpress back end has improved since then.

    The Digg effect is a killer for all sites. I dont think you can leave it down to Wordpress.

    You've posted up an article from 2006 and Wordpress has moved on a lot from then.

    Seriously, Wordpress is considered the best free CMS out there. It's very well written and adaptable to all sorts of needs.

    • Free!
    • Supported!
    • Plugins & Themes Galore
    • Easily Customized
    • SEO
    • Easy Install Fantastico or Not
    I'm sure I missed some other Good reasons to use Wordpress. Regarding the issue with it handling a Digg blast...There's probably a plugin to optimize it for
    performance ;)
