    For a moneysite i always go with WP. Just easier to work with, and I doubt there's any seo benefits choosing one platform over another, since WP has nice site structuring options in place already.

    Any day I will go for WP sites. Easiest cms to build sites with many seo plugins available which are not present for html sites..

    Actually, if you build a complex html site from scratch and focus on onpage optimization that would a little better than wp, but it's not worth the time. WP is very well optimized.

    I usually get my webpage showing in google faster, using HTLM.

    Google indexes a page when they crawl it for the first time. Doesn't matter whether it's wordpress or html.

    HTML best, much more customization and it's easy.

    There is little difference, but if you just need a plain site then html will be better and it should be faster.
    Before deciding on a CMS or static html you need to work out how your site will be used and what you are trying to achieve.
    These days, 9 times out of 10 I go with WP, just because it is so easy and the variety of themes and plugins make it highly customisable but I would use a different CMS if it suited my purposes, just like I would still use a html site if it made sense for that particular project.

    If plain html is enough for your needs then go for it, otherwise Wordpress and a fast enough hosting.

    I think the only real reason to build a plain HTML site is speed. Fetching a static HTML file from the filesystem is just much faster than querying the DB a zillion times and then rendering a templated page using a slow interpreted language such as PHP. Having said that though, I didn't even know people are considering using plain HTML in this day and age. WP output can be customised 100% but you will need to mess around with theme and widget code. WP can also be optimised for speed using a wide array of techniques.

    Well if you have a pure HTML site, you can be assured that the initial response byte of your server would be nearly zero, but then, that does not matter afterall. What my clients request me all the time isto leave as less footprints as possible, and it does make sense. Try minimizing footprints instead of going all html. Html is not manageable atall.

    It depends on your end purpose and the size of your site. For less than 10 pages just go with HTML.

    Plain HTML is safer, faster, gets extra points for SEO and you just can't go wrong with it.

    But if the site is large and you need to change 100's of templates all the time, you'll need a CMS. Also if you have a team you need to manage, edit, control content, you'll need a CMS.
