Is WordPress Search Engine Friendly?

WordPress is extremely efficient for search engine optimisation (SEO) and with the addition of SEO plugins (which we include as standard) can become very powerful at gaining and keeping Google search engine ranking and compares favourably against many other systems on the market. Add SEO services to your WordPress website and you could have an advantage over your competitors right from the start. Forge will recommend additional SEO services for your site if relevant. WordPress also makes excellent use of social media compatibility.

Auckland, NZ based WordPress Developers

Local NZ developer.

Our team of WordPress developers are based in Kingsland, Auckland NZ. You can’t beat using a local NZ developer to build your website. Every day we meet with clients who are fed up with dealing with a developer who is based overseas. Aside from the frustrations of dealing with someone in another time zone who is not available when you want to talk it often ends up being more expensive than it first appears when you factor in all of your own time that is wasted from miscommunication due to language barriers and cultural differences in regard to the relative importance of aesthetics and functionality. We believe it is always better to work with a New Zealand based WordPress development company.
