Looking To Improve Your WordPress Skills? Try These Tips!

If you’ve surfed the Internet, you know how popular blogs are. WordPress, a blogging platform, probably supports many of them. If you wish to blog, you should learn more about it. These tips can help.

Choose a design that is relatively unique when making your WordPress blog; don’t just choose the design everyone else is using. Though it is less time consuming, your site will blend in with other blogs. It is imperative to make a site that highlights your individuality and the personality of your business.

TIP! WordPress is full of options, features and tools that you can use to improve your blogging site. For instance, clicking on the button called KITCHEN SINK provides you with many options with regard to formatting and importing that can help you to customize your posts.

If you have a long title on a post, be sure to clean up your permalink. For example, “Ten Ways for Smart Parents to Tame Their Kids” would appear as a long, cumbersome URL. Instead, you could change the permalink to “tips-parents-unruly-kids” or something similar based on your SEO keywords.

Make sure you use “title” and “alt.” This lets you add text to your posts. Not only do these fields offer more opportunities to stuff in more content specific SEO keywords, but they also allow users who can’t load images to know what they can’t see on your site.

TIP! Video blogging is a snap with WordPress. You must do some preparation; however, it’s worth it.

When you are ready to start posting, create a schedule. By knowing when you need to post, you will be more motivated. 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.

Eliminate any comments or content that detracts from your site’s purpose. That way, the site stays suitable for the interested folks who read it. Use Akismet if you need a plugin to do this.

TIP! The URLs of your blog posts should not have special characters. Special characters make it more difficult for search engines to index your site.

Do your posts attract lots of comments? If that’s the case, it may be hard for you or your visitors to sift through those numerous comments. Simply create pages by adding a plugin for that purpose. It will make your site more organized.

You can increase your rank by including keywords with your pictures. Be sure to add alternate and title tags to every picture. Your title will show up when something is “pinned” on Pintrest.

TIP! Your post will automatically appear chronologically, unless you stipulate otherwise. You can arrange your list by simply changing the date.

Make sure that your greeting is appealing for your WordPress site. This makes your site more personal when trying to relate to the visitor. This will make things look less robotic on your webpage and can be accessed with the WP Greet Box plugin.

Ensure that users have the ability to email your posts to themselves. This is crucial for sharing as well, because many users may lack Twitter or Facebook access on the job, but they may want to share those articles. Use a WP-Email plugin to make this happen.

TIP! Are there lots of people commenting on your posts? If so, weeding through all the comments may be difficult for you and for other visitors. Use a plugin to add page numbers.

Do not make something such as “admin” your own username. Having terms like administrator or admin as your name will make your blog much more attractive to bots who will attack and access your site. This is a major security risk. Take a look at the users page to get rid of any names such as “admin” or even “administrator.” Use something else.

Regardless of how much experience you have with blogging, WordPress offers a wide variety of options. Learning more about WordPress will help you use this application more effectively. Remember this article when you are blogging.

TIP! Search engine rank is something that you can bolster with WordPress. Putting in alternate text and title tags is crucial.
