Why Wordpress website ranked well in major search engines compare with PHP based developed websites?.

If anyone has good idea about these two types of website ranking factors. Kindly share your idea with us.

I don't have an answer but I would imagine to is more to do with the content of the site and the quality of the build than any favouritism for a particular type. 

That's not true that Wordpress sites rank well.

Yes, WordPress is one of the best CMS having lots of useful plugins.

But, I believe a well optimized site for users and not for search engines work well. Focus on users queries and write content providing common solutions to the problems. 


I don't have the stats to hand but one reason Wordpress has a reputation for ranking sites well is purely that Wordpress has been around a long time versus other platforms and website age is a ranking factor for Google.

Our website Armstrong Supplies is only a couple of years old and it is frustrating how long it takes to get domain authority



No, I do not agree.
It is not true that only Wordpress based websites are ranked well.
Any Website that is very well optimized and does have great content for their users can Rank better.
