At PRG, our dedicated web team are consistently following the latest web trends, spending their days creating informative and inventive websites for our clients.
PRG’s web client list boasts a variety of businesses from small to large, operating in a number of different industries from the property sector to local nightlife. One thing all of PRG’s web clients have in common is their use of WordPress to power their websites, whether they offer a fully immersive e-commerce experience, or their website simply acts as a portal to advise new and existing clients of products and services.
With that in mind, there’s no better time than Worldwide Web Day to ask yourself if your website is meeting your objectives. There are many different web Content Management Systems (CMS) options, with one of the most popular and reliable being WordPress, hence its popularity with PRG’s clients and businesses the world over.

Why, you may wonder, do so many large companies choose WordPress as their CMS of choice? There are many reasons you may wish to opt for WordPress, including that it’s easy to manage for those not familiar with the back end of websites, and it takes care of 80-90% of Google’s crawling issues.
