That’s a really interesting infographic. I think SEO is one of the most important reason why you should use WordPress. There are some powerful WordPress SEO plugins that can rank your site high in the search engine.

But yes, “Beyonce uses WordPress” is clearly a selling point lol. But did you know, Snoop Dogg’s website is also made on WordPress 😀
