Content Management System (CMS)

What is a Content Management System, and why do I need one?

A Content Management System, or CMS is a program that allows the user to control the various aspects of a website’s content from a single location. The CMS also eliminates the need for coding, making it user-friendly for those without programming experience.

Through the use of the CMS, one can manage, update, and change content such as: photos, videos, text, graphics and web page structure. This allows the user the freedom to continuously create new content, keeping their website fresh and exciting for its visitors.

The content management system also enables users to organize their website into specific indexed categories that are easily searchable. The ability to keep a website organized is extremely important when it comes to search engine optimization. Search engines rank highly structured websites at the top of their rankings.

Having the ability to control all of the information on a website with a simple to use program makes a content management system an invaluable tool to website owners.
