    It’s a good idea to conduct extensive research as well before you start any website. Think about what your website’s primary keyword phrases will be, and then Google those phrases to find out how tough your competition will be. If everything on the first page is a top-tier, authoritative website, it’s a strong clue that it may be a while before you blog starts to pick up any real traffic.

      Well said, Jack. Keyword research is very important part and one should conduct extensive research before starting a website / blog.

      Thanks for the comment, Jack. Hope you had a great weekend.

    Hey Mohd and Dev,

    WordPress has become an industry standard leader for a reason.

    There are other CMS platforms such as Joomla and Drupal out there but they are hardly (if ever) considered as an option for blogging or internet marketing.

    I have seen just ONE person use Joomla! as their CMS in the past (an IMer from the UK) and I have to say the membership area was very, very cool.

    If I had the time I would definitely like to check out at least Joomla!

    Have you guys tried other CMS resources besides WordPress?

      Hey Sergio,

      Well said, mate. WordPress has become a CMS that people love to use.

      There is no other CMS like WordPress (except Joomla) where we can get hundreds of thousands of plugins & theme for free.

      I’ve used Pligg CMS, which is used for creating social bookmarking sites. I created one with it – Blokube.com It’s not the best cms, but I hadn’t have a choice. If I knew I could achieve the similar functionality with WordPress, than I wouldn’t have been using Pligg.

      Thanks for coming over here and commenting. Your support is greatly appreciated, Sergi.
