There’s a lot to learn when it comes to creating a WordPress website. You don’t get the results or experience that you want if you don’t know WordPress well enough. Read on to blog like a professional.
Choose an interesting and unusual design for your WordPress blog. While copying someone else’s design is quick, it doesn’t make a good impression. You want to show how your site is different from everyone else.
When it is time to begin posting, set up a schedule. You will feel motivated to post regularly if you have a good schedule. Actually, you can write all the posts for a week in one sitting and then use WordPress’s schedule feature to upload the posts at the appointed time.
Omit special characters from the URLs of your blog posts. Special characters make it more difficult for search engines to index your site. While utilizing keywords, make sure you keep those URLs short as well.
Unless you modify it, all posts will be in chronological order. First you must modify the date, then you can rearrange the list. The date is always on the top, right-hand corner of every blog post. Change its position by clicking the date, changing it, and saving the post.
Are there lots of people commenting on your posts? If they do, it can be quite a chore for you and your readers to comb through all of them. To remedy this, you can use a plugin that adds page numbers to your comments section. That will make navigation much easier and your site will appear more organized.
Search engine ranks can be boosted with just a little more time spent while adding photos. Be sure to add alternate and title tags to every picture. The title you add will be what appears on Pinterest if someone “pins” your image.
There is so much to learn about WordPress and you probably can’t learn it all in one day, but you have taken the first step. Follow the useful advice presented here to become an excellent blogger. With these tips and some practice, you’ll be quicker and more efficient with posts.
