Hi guys,

The last time i asked a question here about wordpress vs. websites, i didn't know a thing about wordpress. Now, i have a client who is asking which of the two is best for SEO.

Can someone tell me if it matters if i build a site selling the client's products on wordpress or an html website. Does Google's spiders crawl better on wordpress? What are the pros and cons of both?

I'm not an expert, but I belive that the general consensus is that Wordpress is best.

I would be interested to hear other people's view though.

Depends on the purpose of your site. If you are building an ecommerce site the WordPress is not the right tool in most cases.

However WordPress allows you to do some things very easily and opens up an entire world of promtional opportunities in the BlogShere.

For example with a few simple plugins you can set up your pinging so that with each new article you post all the ping services are notified automatically.

You can ping your Static Sites... but not with this ease.

WordPress gains you admission into Blog Directories.

I'm tired... but the point is there is so much more you can do with WordPress for the average site that it's just too hard to overlook. I now do almost all of my Development on WordPress.

And you can not undervalue the potential of commenting which is built in to the WordPress Platform and makes it easy for you to communicate with customers that might otherwise just leave.

I'm actually in the Process of converting Internet Marketing IQ to WordPress... and I love Joomla, but the value of comments and the ease of automating certain features ... made me abandon Joomla for this particular project.

Thanks quest.
So far in my search for answers in other sites, wordpress seems to be the ultimate answer to most kind of website. The ease of navigation and friendliness of setting it up makes it a first choice to build a site. Except maybe for a full pledge ecommerce site. But then again, more plugins are coming up to cater to those things too.

I agree, wordpress is the best...not the fact that they don't use html, but just that the site is optimized a whole lot better for SEO. It also helps if you have your own domain and is not using the wordpress subdomain Smile

Unfortunately, I only know a few basics about HTML. However, what I do know from my own experience is that Wordpress websites do very well in the search engines, so I think it would be a good idea to invest your time optimizing the websites you build with Wordpress, rather than spending the extra time to do HTML.

The advantage a WordPress site can be in the freshness of the content. Since WP is blog-oriented, it is easier to update a site and renew it as often as you want or need; with HTML, even using a WYSIWYG tool makes updating difficult, and the site usually would stay the same.

Wordpress is undoubtedly ahead in my view. Its simple as well. Put some plugin for SEO purpose like All in one SEO and you are done.

But wordpress has some design limitation. Its not as flexible as html.

I started writing my beginner's guide to WordPress SEO a while back, and have since done a load of posts on the subject, an article in the Search Marketing Standard, newsletters, and presentations. It's time to let all the info of all these different articles fall into one big piece: the final guide to WordPress SEO.

Wordpress is faster when updating content...and is better at SEO because it helps you edit things faster. It has some plugins that can make your site perfect

You know, I have been doing the html thing since '03 and it has brought me a lot of good things. However recently I started getting into wordpress hardcore and I am so impressed with the simplicity of it all.

If you are building for a customer I would go wordpress because it offers a far better platform for them to do site updates themselves.

I also feel that in general the coding is much cleaner with wordpress. Of course there are exceptions but generally most templates are going to be error free. If you are sloppy at html chances are there may be some errors that could cause an issue.
