Old School HTML
Old school HTML: what Search Engines love most.
WordPress requires Plugins for almost everything, particularly Search Engine functionality that is pre-built into the MODX framework.
For the past year, Google has ranked websites based on how fast they load, especially if one is using any Google products such as AdSense. The reasoning: Google estimates it loses $1 billion/year on slow-loading websites.
If you want to know how fast your website is, or what's slowing it down, use PageSpeed. It produces a detailed report of how browsers load your website and what makes them slow. Developers rely on it to figure out their own best practices. For me it's meant cutting down on image size without sacrificing image quality by using the webp format.
Old School Search Engine Love
These HTML elements need to be congruent and consistent in order to rank high and relevant in search engines.
There must be at least ONE word that matches in those elements in order to rank high with search engines. Let's check out this page to see how I did.

<title>Peter B Creates Old School HTML</title>
<meta name="description" content="Old school HTML is what Search Engines love most. MODX is a sleek fighter jet, whereas WordPress is a semi-truck with wings.">
<meta name="keywords" content="HTML,URL,Title,Description,Keywords,Headers,Content">
If it's relevant to this page's Seach Engine features, I boldened it.
WordPress Comparison Critique
My experience with WordPress mirrors Rocket City Digital's experience. Just because you can doesn't mean you should. Everyone likes to believe that it won't happen to them, and I sure do hope it doesn't. Following best practices for passwords can not only prevent your website from being hacked, it can stop hacks from travelling upstream to your bank account.
IF MODX is a Stealth Jet,
THEN Wordpress is a crop duster.
IF MODX is a Drag Racer,
THEN Wordpress is a Semi Truck with wings.
IF MODX is a Rimac Nevera C Two
THEN Wordpress is a Ford Model T.
(That's the biggest compliment I can give it)
IF MODX is a Burj Khalifa
THEN Wordpress is a warehouse.
That's all I've got for now. Feel free to switch out all of the other open sources systems.
