No nonsense search engine friendly websites without using WordPress
When I started building website I built little 5 or 6 page static websites in HTML and CSS.
As time went by I started building these same little 5 or 6 page websites using WordPress.
The main reason for using Worpress was it made things simpler to edit and update and the reason I wanted them to be easier to edit and update was so that I could hand them over to other people when they were finished.
Problem is, despite lots of instructions I still found a lot of people didn’t touch the sites after they were finished and if they did want anything changing they still came back to me to do it.
With this in mind I decided to dump WordPress and just revert back to creating basic, simple, search engine friendly static websites.
The advantages of Static sites over WordPress sites
No need to install it
No need to have a database
No constantly having to monitor and update WordPress
Easier to have an online backup which can be instantly uploaded
No faffing with widgets, plugins and other stuff that just makes webmasters lazy
Far easier to do what you want
No need to use up your disc space with multiple copies of images
Just as search engine friendly
The disadvantages of static sites over WordPress sites
Have to start my FTP software every now and then
Going back to static sites
It was a tough choice, but after weighing up the pros and cons of using WordPress I’ve decided to revert back to creating static sites again and provide some Simple Website Design Packages specifically devised for micro businesses and small local businesses.
See some basic examples:
Woodworm Solutions Ltd – A simple 8 page site for a local woodworm treatment specialist.
Warwickshire Handyman – A basic site for a Warwickshire Handyman which has expanded with the inclusion of extra pages.
Ready Assembled Beehives – Demo homepage of a simple 5 page mini site
