CMS stands for Content Management System. It some ways it does what it says on the tin….it is a system for managing the content of your website.
Content Management Systems are generally accessible via any computer with an internet connection by using your browser. This could be Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox or Safari.
There are many different CMS’s available, but one you have probably heard of is WordPress. We create websites using this system and also using the slightly more advanced Joomla system.
CMS’s are general quite easy to use with a little basic training. The main text editor part will be very much like using Word, you’ll type what you want the website content to be, choose whether you want parts to be bold or perhaps some bullet points and then save your work to make the changes live on the website.
Most content management systems will also allow you to update images on the site, add new pages and delete old content.
Depending of your business needs and your technical ability the CMS can also be used to edit other parts of the site, including home page layout, navigation and fonts and colours. The beauty of having website experts create your CMS website is that you can choose how much control you want to have and still have experts to step in and make other changes for you.
Many businesses are now choosing CMS websites to suit their ever changing market and of course to help with SEO! To find out more about how a CMS can help your search engine ranking, read about it in our blog article ‘How does website content affect SEO’.
