There are some advantages to this.
- You can edit copy and put in pictures.
- They are cheaper to have built because they are actually templates (pre-built structures) that are customized with graphics and plug-ins.
One problem has now surfaced, traditional websites are being ranked much higher than WordPress Website. This phenomena has happened in the last 6 months. Google decided to shake it up – so if you have a traditional website you will be listed higher on the pages.
I am currently developing a section on my website called WordPress Websites – this is for those on a budget that want a relatively inexpensive blog/website. I will have some that can be bought and downloaded that you yourself can customize. I will do tweaking of the banner to reflect your business. I will announce when I have it done.
Honestly – if you want to build your business foundation as strongly as possible – a standard website with a blog - nothing can beat this winning combination. Make sure blog, is optimized just as much as your website - blogs have some subtle differences. Understands the latest SEO standards – for whatever you have built.
Last but not least - always, always, always host your own blog.
