Looking to create a stunning website but can’t decide between Squarespace and WordPress?
Out of the two, we recommend WordPress, the content management system is ideal if you want more power and customization. If you prefer to build your site under Squarespace I recommend buying a template, working with the free Squarespace version to limit your web structure, and later you will need to hire a web designer to help you build the site. Squarespace offers stunning, high-quality templates. Plus, as a website builder, it’s really easy to use.
Read on for our full breakdown, and to find out which of these two is best for you!
Squarespace is better for you if…
You want to create a website with no hassle and need to set it up fairly quickly. It’s also better if you’re not too tech-savvy, because it doesn’t require you to write a single line of code! If you want to know exactly how much your website will cost you, we recommend going with Squarespace, since its transparent pricing plans won’t catch you off guard. This is the go-to platform for high-quality, stunning template designs, which help your site to stand out from the crowd.
WordPress is better for you if…
You need extra support for your large, content-heavy website. It’s a perfect choice for anyone looking to completely customize their site from a blank canvas, and doesn’t mind getting their hands dirty with code! With powerful blogging tools and limitless third-party plugins to choose from, you’ll have full control over the outcome. If you’re not put off by technical tasks such as hosting, security, or updates, then WordPress is the way to go.
With all our experience working with WordPress since they release the first version, I see that the WP code is Google-friendly. If we follow the guidelines and rules that Google requires to reach a good rank position, WordPress has the best code for SEO and SEM.
