Let's look at the comparison carefully. Also, read the article about 10 Weebly Excess

1. Choice of themes/templates are more varied

Themes/templates of a site are one very important factor. When a visitor goes to your site page, the first impression they get is a web display or layout. Themes are simple and interesting can make visitors feel like to linger on your website.

WordPress provides an unlimited choice of themes, you can use free themes that have been provided with an unlimited amount. But if you want to use themes that are more personal or unique, you can edit a free theme, or it could be by buying themes to your liking.

2. Facilities Plugins

On the WordPress blog, you can add certain plugins to add the ability of a blog. There are many types of plugins in WordPress and have their respective functions. One of them is All In One SEO Pack plugins that serve to help your web optimization in search engines.

There are still many plugins that you can use for web/blog WordPress in accordance with the functionality you need. It does not take any special skills to install plugins into your WordPress web, just simply install and then enable plugins. Some plugins will require settings, but most WordPress plugins can be set easily.

3. A 'friendly' permalink structure with search engines

What is meant by a 'friendly' permalink structure with a search engine is a permalink structure that is easy to read by search engines? In WordPress, we can set up permalink structure to match the title of the article we create so that each of our articles is easily readable by search engines, and of course, this also helps SEO a site.

4. Support Widget

This is the facility to set the module block on the sidebar or footer of our WordPress blog. You can add modules to the sidebar and customize widgets as you wish by drag and drop, very easily.

5. HTML code can be changed

In WordPress.com we can not change the existing HTML code, but for WordPress.org you can change the HTML code in it as you wish, of course, you have to understand the coding hehe. In most WordPress themes, you need to know about HTML - though it does not have to be expert - to make the blog or web display created exactly what you want.

6. Integrated Link Management

On most weblogs, there will be links or links to other recommended sites. With a WordPress site, you can easily install and manage links to other sites.

7. Can create pages easily

I once made a blog on blogspot and in this article, I write I have not managed to make a special page hehe. I'm sure there must be a way to create a special page on blogspot but how to create a page on WordPress is definitely much easier.

8. WordPress be Equipped anti-spam

Spammers are one of those problems that often bother me. Lots of spammers who use special software to make fake comments to link their site to the comment page. I do not know your opinion, but in my opinion, better no comments in my article from the comments came from spammers.

To overcome these spammers, WordPress also provides a free plugin called Akismet. The function of this plugins is to hold all spam comments sent to our blog. How to install Akismet plugins is very easy, and requires registration for its use.

9. Tagging

WordPress also features a tagging facility that aims so that we can insert tags with keywords related to the article created. These tags will certainly make your site more easily recognizable by search engines and help our site SEO.

10.  Multiple Authors

This is one of my favorite WordPress features. We can add authors on WordPress blogs easily and practically without worrying about the security of our site. As can be seen at en.marahmerah.com, currently this blog has 3 authors with different usernames. Two other authors can log in and post the article but have no control over the en.marahmerah.com blog.

11. Can block visitors from certain IP

I once blocked some IPs after finding the visitor from the IP is doing SPAM via the comment page. This is another advantage of WordPress.org, in addition to being able to withstand spam comments in the spam box, we can also block IP spammers from being able to access our site in the future.

12. We can see site visitors

You must be curious to know from everywhere visitors to your site? Installing google analytics is one way to know the data about our site visitors, and for that, you must create a google analytics account and insert google analytics script into your WordPress blog. But there are also plugins that can help to see the origin of our site visitors. By installing plugins named Who's Online, we can see who and where our web visitors come from.

13. Very Easy In Use

WordPress is perfect for beginner level because the user does not need an expert in coding and PHP script to optimize CMS WordPress. In addition to creating a blog, WordPress can also be used to create various types of websites with attractive appearance and features, such as online store, company website, web profile, and others. However, WordPress is not for all types of websites.

Actually, there are many advantages of WordPress than any other platform that I can not write in this post. In my opinion, having a WordPress website with your own hosting will be more profitable, in addition to looking more professional, you can also make your brand better known. If you have other additions or different opinions, please post them in the comments section.
