Why you should never trust the ‘free’ version of WordPress
The Hill article A new study by Oxford University’s business school has revealed that the ‘Free WordPress’ (FFW) version of the popular blogging software has a very low chance of staying free over the long-term.
The Oxford team, which conducted the research, found that even when the software is free, users often upgrade to the more expensive Premium version after they’ve used the free version for a while.
The team analyzed the data of over 50,000 WordPress users over time, finding that while there was a slight decline in usage over time with the introduction of Premium, the upgrade rate was still higher than that of free WordPress.
As of late February, the team estimates that there are more than 6.4 million WordPress users worldwide.
This could be the case, the researchers said, because “free WordPress is generally seen as a better deal than paid WordPress because of the lower barrier to entry and a lower barrier for advertisers to use the plugin.”
But there are still some benefits to using the free WordPress version.
While it may not be the cheapest option out there, it has some of the best features available.
The team said that it was important to keep in mind that the premium WordPress version “does not come with ads.”
Additionally, because it comes with ads, it can be difficult to remove them.
For those who can’t afford Premium, or don’t like ads, there are other options.
One of the most popular is the free, but ad-free, WordPress blog plugin WordPress Blogger.
WordPress is a popular blogging platform, with more than 4 million registered users.
WordPress has been around for more than 20 years and has been a major contributor to the growth of the Internet.
But it has struggled to keep up with its competitors.
In the last few years, the company has taken steps to compete with Facebook and Google, both of which have grown substantially in the past few years.
