Are you stuck using an old CMS (content management system) that is driving you mad? Are you unable to update your website? There are many downfalls to using an out of date CMS, this includes the security of your website and also your ranking on Google! We discuss why you should migrate your old website to WordPress.
Why is an old CMS bad?
Using an old CMS can be very harmful to your business. An old content management system is easier to hack, meaning if you store customer data it could be compromised. Hackers could delete your website, change your websites content and all round cause your business a lot of grief. And let’s be honest, a potential customer doesn’t want to see hacked content, pop-ups and redirects to irrelevant sites.
Old CMS also uses dated SEO (search engine optimisation) techniques and technology. If you have noticed your rankings plummeting in the past couple of years it may be a sign that it’s time to migrate your old website to a new CMS.
Old CMS is hard to use, which makes it more difficult to train your staff on updating your website, adding new content and just general up keep. It will also take more valuable time and effort to keep your site ‘going’.
When you finally do come to re-designing or adjusting your website it will be much easier on a modern CMS like WordPress. WordPress has thousands of resources, plugins and responsive themes that you can use to leverage your old website design.
