Taglines can help businesses create a distinctive identity, being an important marketing tool.

According to Forbes magazine, a good tagline will help you set apart from other companies that provide similar products.

WordPress uses “Just Another WordPress Site” by default for a tagline. I can’t say that all themes will have it but most of them do.

Why Should I Remove The Tagline?

Usually, when you download a free theme and install it, the default settings will apply. So, the tagline “Just Another WordPress Site” will make its appearance. We have to change that because it makes our website look very unprofessional.

Whenever a visitor will come across your site, he will be confused because he will not know what your business is all about. This is an important reason to change your website’s tagline.
