The 5 Leading WordPress Website Features Of 2019 - Plus, The Top 33 WordPress Web Development Companies, According To DesignRush

Nearly 15 percent of the top websites in the world are powered by WordPress. DesignRush discovered the leading WordPress functionalities that ensure successful sites and the top 33 WordPress website agencies to build them.

NEW YORK, March 27, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Almost 15 percent of the top 100 websites in the world are powered by WordPress – and for good reason, too. WordPress equips businesses with several imperative functionalities that are proven to improve traffic, conversions, brand awareness and revenue.

Plus, WordPress is one of the fastest growing content management systems in the world. This means that it doesn't just provide a great user interface, but it's simple for businesses to manage as well.

DesignRush.com, a B2B marketplace connecting brands with agencies, uncovered the top WordPress web design functionalities. Each feature has the ability to help brands grow effectively and achieve long-term success.

The top 5 WordPress web design features of 2019 are:

1. Search Engine Optimization

WordPress is arguably the best content management system for search engine optimization. The hosting platform automatically has fields for key SEO items such as titles, alt image tags, and meta descriptions.

In addition, there are plenty of plugins and programs that can help brands further improve and customize their SEO strategies on the WordPress site.

2. Responsive Design

Websites built on WordPress come optimized for various mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets. This mobile-friendly interface is shown to increase conversions and build strong brand loyalty with consumers.

3. Seamless Integrations

Although WordPress websites come equipped with plenty of features, brands also have the option of integrating various plugins to further customize and improve their own site. Plugins can be paid or free, and include items such as:

  • Social media platforms
  • Contact forms
  • Data and analytics
  • Email marketing assistance
  • And more!

4. Strong Cybersecurity

Cybersecurity is paramount for online businesses, and a safe website will protect their sensitive data and customer's private information. Luckily, WordPress offers several cybersecurity measures, including data backup, system updates, secure logins, and more.

5. Scalable Designs

WordPress is both extremely customizable and, thus, scalable for businesses. Brands have the option of building their own personalized interface or using a pre-designed template. In addition, through several plugins and features, a WordPress website's capabilities can grow in conjunction with a growing business.

"WordPress is a great choice for many companies looking to improve their online presence," says DesignRush Founder and Chief Executive Officer Gabriel Shaoolian. "WordPress's many offerings can be tailored to nearly any business goal or industry, especially with the help of qualified WordPress web designers."
