Should You Move to WordPress Now?

Have you been trying to decide if you should make the switch to WordPress? The Infographic below is a flow chart that could help you make that decision. Let us take a brief overview of the infographic.

The first question that you should ask yourself is, “is this a new website or blog?”

If the answer is yes then you should start with Self-hosted WordPress.

If the answer is no then move onto the next question.
The next question on the flow chart is “do you currently have good traffic coming to your site?”

If the answer to this question is yes then you may want to consult and expert about the risk, which could include:
1. Loss of SEO
2. Broken inbound links
3. Loss of traffic

If the answer is no then this moves us to the next question,
The next question is, “do you have a lot of pages or posts on your current site?”

If the answer is yes, you may want to move to WordPress by using their user-friendly import tool. You will have to check if your site is one that can be imported using this too.

If the answer to the question is no then move onto the next question.

The next question is, “have you invested a lot in the design of your website?”

If the answer is no then you should make the move to WordPress. You can manually move your site to WordPress if it cannot be imported automatically.

If the answer is yes this will take us to the next question on the chart.

The next question is, “are you on another content management system?”

If the answer is yes you have reached a “decision point,” if your current CMS offers you the flexibility that you need and you are happy with your design you may want to consider staying where you are.

If the answer is no then you should consider moving. Consider moving to WordPress, you will lose your design but you will have more flexibility and many other benefits that are provided by WordPress.
