What is WordPress?
WordPress is a free CMS (content management system) that has been incredibly successful and risen from a handful of users to the most-used blog tool in the world. It is steadily taking over Blogger’s users to the point that Googles own Matt Cutts uses WordPress instead of the “Google owned” Blogger CMS for his personal blog.

Why is LinchpinSEO Helping Small Businesses?
One of the most common problems I hear from small businesses is they don’t know how to install WordPress and have a hard time creating content and marketing their websites in the organic search results. They are left to create sub-par websites that perform poorly in the local seo space. LinchpinSEO is tired of local sites not getting the same opportunities as the larger businesses (who pay companies thousands of dollars for a website), and so we want to help them compete in their local market.
How Much Does It Cost?
If you were to ask another firm to install WordPress on your hosting platform, create the database, install plugins and your theme, they could charge you between $500 and $1000 for their time. Because of LinchpinSEO’s commitment to the small business owner we are offering this for free. You simply provide the URL, Hosting, Theme (unless you want us to build you a custom small business website), and plugins you would like us to use.
