Houston Chronicle Switches to WordPress

The Houston Chronicle (Hearst Newspapers) began newspaper blogging with a Moveable Type 3 installation in 2005. But the times they are a changin’ and on April 30th, 2011 they are switching to WordPress®.

Fortune 500 companies don’t use the type of frames sites that the REALTORS® usually use. Hearst Newspapers is just one of the latest major companies to make the switch to WordPress®.

A few good reasons to switch to WordPress®:

  • Search engine-friendly architecture.
  • Google loves it.
  • Great content management system
  • Clean, light, table-less code
  • Ease of use
  • Easily integrated with shopping carts, membership sites, affiliate programs
  • Your recent contributions to your WordPress® site are instantly syndicated and your posts frequently show up in the major search engines within the same day.
  • Flexibility and extensibility. WordPress® has thousands of plugins to expand functionality and keep your site current with recent technology.
  • Results!

  1. Wow that is so interesting that such a huge company would use wordpress. Just goes to show you how great wordpress really is.

  2. You’ve got it right Houston Chronicle! Google loves WordPress and so does Waterfront Properties & Club Communities in Jupiter, Florida.

    Here at Waterfront Properties we are huge advocates for WordPress. We have been using it for years to post blogs and update our customers about the market. We write blogs about local events, price changes on our listings, communities and more. The opprotunities are endless and it has done great things for our company.

  3. Cool blog.Wordpress websites are easier to use than any other sites. It is nice to know that you think so too. Keeping the topics interesting will bring in more readers following your blogs, looking for more food for thought. Best of all WordPress posts generate traffic. Thanks for posting.

  4. From my experience, i find that Google loves word press, that’s why I always recommend a word press blog on all websites that I design. It’s one of the best ways to get Google spiders to crawl your website, and if you have back links to your websites homepage you will find that it boosts your overall websites crawl rate.
