Wordpress.com VIP Review

wordpress.com is one of the most popular and excellent platforms for creating and maintaining blogs and simple websites.

Valuable Features:

Offer hundreds of free themes (templates) to choose from.Intuitive user interface (UI) and SEO friendly.No hosting required (Freely available, followed by .wordpress.com).Smaller learning curve.

Room for Improvement:

Doesn't provide option to modify PHP and CSS files for free members.Not scalable for big and complex websites.No option to monetize the website (Affiliated links or Advertisements).

Other Advice:

No doubt, wordpress.com offers great features from newbies to experts. In order to improve the product, some of the basic and important features should be freely available (Like Uploading Custom plugins and themes).
Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

You are right, Wordpress is SEO friendly. SEO pack is the plugin that is often used by Wordpress users. Joomla is not that SEO friendly but the user can design an outstanding website with simple coding. It depends on what kind of site the user is looking at, SEO friendly or a beautiful website. Both have their own strenghts.

Agree, with the reviewer, Wordpress is good tool for designing blogs or websites with no hosting and domain registration charge, but the web adrress you choose has to be followed by wordpress.com eg. mybusiness.wordpress.com.
