Has anybody found better SEO results using Jekyll over Wordpress for blogging?
Seriously i never heard anything about Jekyll, Going to check it.
1st time i heard about this CMS....need to research on it now
I have a personal blog on wordpress theguillermospot.wordpress.com and I understand that for the few SEO efforts I've made it has returned results way over expectations. Wordpress all the way
Never heard of it either, until now.
Me neither. OP, personally I'd go for WordPress just for the sake of having such a huge library of different plugins and themes. Jekyll sounds cool though, I'm gonna check it out.
Heard of it but pretty faintly, many others like Joomla or Drupa, why use complex stuff when WP is easily available. Other members mentioned plugin library is huge
How secure is it compared to wordpress?
I have found better results with Jekyll blog due to ultra fast site loading and simple minimalist design. I've since then decided to go with Jekyll for a blog.
But installing it is a pian in the ass for the first time and non-coders.
Jekyll is a static site. That is why the loadtime is so fast.
What makes WP slow is the loading of its core and the mostly not speed optimized themes (even premium themes because of all the features which are not used by you and basically just wasting space and slowing down the speed of the site).
Best is a custom static site. Look into Hexo.io (Hueman Theme if you do not want to do it completly custom (my recommendation) and if you need an cms behind that to manage your posts, then try the netlify cms.
Hope this helps.
Compared to Jekyll, Wordpress is most easiest CMS to use. Even not more technically strongest, they can build websites use of Wordpress. Jekyll is not popular and safer. The loading time for Jekyll is high comparitively wordpress because its only for static websites
in my opinion wordpress is better than jekyll, there is many feature you can do with wordpress.
Jekyll? like the psycho Dr? Never heard of it.
I will choose Wordpress, much easier to use, proven by the people in general and safe.
Jekyll? I don't have much idea about this.
Seems jekyll is totally new to me. But I like and get success using WP.
The CMS is not going to be a factor in SEO.
I agree took me a few months to learn. I received so many errors at the beginning mostly because my computer is not optimized for it.
What's your experience with Jekyll?
It appears to be secure. There's no login except through the web server. I used Github to host my code for my test site.
I'll check it out. Thanks. Testing Jekyll right now. I'm just curious who else uses it.
