What is a Content Management System (CMS)?

what is a content management system

At its most basic, a Content Management System (CMS), is a browser-based program that is used by internet publishers to manage their 'content', whether it be the written word, photographs or videos.

WordPress is a fine example of a content management system. Most people think of WordPress as only a 'Blog' site but, as most Blogs today include written content, pictures and videos, WordPress actually has become one of the premier CMS platforms on the web.

With WordPress you have a powerful but easy to use CMS in that WordPress uses WYSIWYG as its formatting sub-platform. This stands for What You See Is What You Get, meaning simply that when the editor of the CMS inputs their new content they can instantly see exactly what it will look like when it is published online, making it more like a word processor program and much easier for non-tech types.

A CMS also provides a set of standard operating procedures for inputting new content so that, in the event that there's collaboration among several people, the end product (blog, website, etc.) will be standardized no matter who is inputting the pictures, words or videos.

WordPress is powerful, to be sure, but there are also complex CMS platforms that are more similar to a content database. Using these types of CMS a company can, for example, keep better track of their content over several websites and any changes made to a particular website, blog or what have you.

But in the end most people who need a CMS can easily use WordPress and take advantage of its powerful but simple platform. Not only is it a great site for beginners and experts alike but WordPress also has become one of the best CMS platforms for Search Engine Optimization (SEO).

Indeed most of the tasks that have long been associated with getting a website or Blog to 'rank highly' on the biggest search engines are completely automated when you use WordPress, a fact that hasn't gone unnoticed among internet affiliate marketers.

Simple or complex a good CMS program is vital for anyone that wishes to keep track of their online content and generate revenue online. WordPress is one of the best but there are many others that work as well. In the end it depends on your particular needs, what you wish to track and how complex your particular needs are.
