Content Management System (CMS)

CMS are pages on the web which use a backend database to feed it's content or where to find it.

List of CMS benefits

  • Allows a large number of users to share and contribute to stored data.
  • Allows users to immediately add, amend or delete adverts, items for sale, special offers etc,
  • Allows the website owner to have more control over their site.
  • Simplifies report writing like number of bookings or sales etc.
  • The system stores data in compliance to website design rules so eliminates page errors.
  • Content could be documents, movies, texts, pictures, phone numbers, articles etc.
  • As well as content, pages can be added and menu bars auto updated.

List of CMS disadvantages

  • Using a database to feed a web page can slow down it's load time which is an SEO aspect.
  • Code used to retrieve data can cause code bloat making it more difficult for search engines to index.
  • Some CMSs are built witout SEO in mind!
  • Flash based CMSs are hard to index and best not used!
  • It's not always advisable to allow users to change content which has been SEO'd.
  • If the database fails the site can go down as well.
  • All databases need to be backed up and maintained so ongoing costs are likely.
  • If for any reason the database fails without backups all content is lost.
  • Admin Areas are prone to attack especially if users decide to use low strength passwords.
