Is WordPress Better for SEO Than Coding a Website from Scratch?

A thread on the Reddit forum r/SEO asked whether using WordPress is better for search engine optimization (SEO) than coding a website from scratch. Google Search Advocate John Mueller responded that there is no inherent SEO advantage to using WordPress over coding a website manually.

The main advantage of WordPress is its ease of use, which allows website owners to focus more on content creation rather than building a content management system (CMS) from scratch. However, this advantage does not affect the way Google crawls or indexes websites, regardless of whether they are built with WordPress or another CMS. There is a common misconception that WordPress is better for SEO, but this is not supported by any evidence.

For more information regarding the SEO capabilities of WordPress compared to other content management systems, see this article from SEJ Founder Loren Baker.

I help small and medium business owners compete with big corporations by teaching them know how to use search engines like Google and/or creating a Search Engine Optimization dynamic monthly plan.
