Dr. Gabriela Avram's class on WordPress

Today we discussed about WordPress and its fonder. WordPress is a website management tool which was created by Matt Mullenweg. It is a very versatile option to use to build a website. There is a wide community using WordPress including forms which allows people to help one another. It's good for those who are not used to HTML and allows a user to choose from plugins which can make your website much more interactive and personal.
We also talked about SEO (search engine operations) and ways in which to get a better rating from your website. Such easy tasks of uploading new content daily (which Google loves) can get you better ratings. A easy and good way to do this is to link your website to a blog or/and Twitter. 
Also a good plug in to have is Google analytices which would allow you to see who has been to your site, what computer they use and operating system. Also analytices can tell you what page they left from on your website which could potentially help you to see if this page could be improved.
Final note, as you know I'm using Blogger to post daily on, but I'm almost tempted to change to WordPress. Much more exciting, more options, more fun. I will think about this over the weekend.
