What is content management system?
Content Management System (CMS) is a popular facility that most of the web users are using nowadays. CMS enables people without professional web design or programming knowledge to update information whenever there is a need. Hence, you need not to engage professional website Design Company when new information needs to be updated to viewers. With CMS, you are able to keep all your viewers updated by new information or promotion and make them willing to visit your website again in the future.
What should a content management system consist of?
- A user friendly system. Content management system needs to be easy to use so that people without professional knowledge can update information without much hassle. Hence, you need not to waste time to find suitable web designer to update your website. With constantly updated information, you are able to attract viewers to visit your website more frequently and increase your website traffic.
- Able to do Search Engine Optimization like title,meta keywords and meta description insertion. Besides being able to update new information, CMS needs to provide a tool that can do SEO as well. This is because updating CMS blindly will not be enough to make your website being well ranked in search engines. Your CMS needs to have SEO so that search engine spiders will be able to crawl and index your website. Be careful while choosing CMS with SEO, you need to note that title tag, META description tag and META keywords are important and should be included in CMS.
- An automatic update of site map. A useful CMS should update its site map automatically and an XML feed should also be created to make sure that search engines will be instantly informed when there is an additional web page in your website. Thus, search engines will be constantly being updated if your website has any changes.
- CMS usually consists of membership log in, blogging, comments and forums so that your website can interact with your viewers closely. This enables your viewers or hopefully potential customers to clear their doubts before they purchase your company’s products.
