What the First Free WordPress Workshop Will Cover: The Power of WordPress
"With WordPress, if you can think it, you can do it, so the first free WordPress workshop will cover the power of WordPress,” Key said.
“The way WordPress is built, the platform takes having to remember a lot of optimization techniques out of the equation, because WordPress will do it for you,” he said. “An HTML-based site may be great also, but WordPress will do the heavy SEO lifting for you, and you don’t have to pay attention to it. And with all its available plug-ins, WordPress can be customized to whatever your needs are, from a single-page info site to a full-on e-commerce site.”
In Tuesday night’s inaugural free WordPress workshop, Key will also cover important basics like proper setup and configuration, and the essential plug-ins every WordPress site must have.
“I’ll show the class how to set up a WordPress website correctly, so it gets indexed by the major search engines in less than a minute,” Key said. “That’s where WordPress has the upper hand over other websites. WordPress doesn’t have to wait for search engines to link to it. WordPress does that work for you.”
