I was just wondering if anyone has any definitive advice on this WP vs. html pages issue.
I learned basic html a few years ago and got my head around Dreamweaver - enough to make some simple mini sites and have had moderate success with selling from those pages. At that time, blogs were the new kid on the block.
Now, everyone says go with WP. Sure, it's easy to install, but big plugins slow them down, embedding videos in them or anything with iframes is a nightmare, (if not impossible) ... and I just end up frazzled!
I can understand if you're autoblogging - obviously that has to be WP (or blogger I suppose). But for a straightforward sales page with an appropriate domain name, does anyone have any evidence that the SE's favour one over the other? I can't seem to rank any better or any faster whichever I choose, and my preference would be to stick with html pages which I can put together in under 20 minutes.
I'd be very interested in other warriors' experiences and views.
