Top Tips And Advice For Working With WordPress

If you’ve been online recently, then you should be familiar with blogs. Many blogs use WordPress. If you have your own site, or even if you are just curious about WordPress, the information that follows will help you learn more.

Avoid designs that are commonplace. Although it can save time to use a standard design, you won’t have a professional image. You want to show how your site is different from everyone else.

TIP! Avoid designs that are commonplace. This may be tempting since it’s a time saver, but users will not be too impressed with your effort.

Be sure to learn all you can before you even install WordPress. By planning before developing a blog, you can save yourself both time and effort. You need to know how to produce great content and about SEO or search engine optimization prior to your blog launch.

Special Characters

TIP! Get familiar with the tools on WordPress to help you blog. For example, if there’s a Kitchen Sink button you click, you’ll be able to get a bunch of other choices that allow you to format and import what you want so posts can be unique.

Get rid of special characters in the URLs of your WordPress blog posts. Special characters make it more difficult for search engines to index your site. You should also shorten all URLs so that they aren’t overwhelming to anyone coming to your site, so only include the key words.

Make sure that your work is saved at all times. That’s most likely false. Clear your cache to see if that fixes the problem. Refresh your browser while holding down your shift key to make your changes appear.

TIP! Video blogging is easy with WordPress. While this might take a little extra preparation on your part, it is worth it.

The posts that you make appear in the order you make them, unless you specify. You must alter the date if you wish to reorder the list. To do this, open a post so that you can see its date near the top-right. Select the date and make your changes; then, save the post to make the position change permanent.

Optimizing the images that you upload to WordPress can give your site rank a boost. Make sure to give titles, as well as alternate text tags. Your title will show up if someone “pins” that image to Pinterest.

TIP! Gather as much information as you can before installing WordPress. The more planning you do ahead of time, the better off you will be when you begin.

Your username should never be “admin” or anything similar. Doing so can make your site vulnerable to bot attacks. This is a major security risk. Eliminate admin type user names altogether. Choose a new username.

Never share your password. In addition, be careful which plugins you download; you don’t want to inadvertently harm your computer. If your site becomes compromised, you will have to begin again; therefore, it is important to do everything you can to keep your site secure.

TIP! Make a posting schedule for yourself. Having a schedule will assist you in getting your posts done on time.

Always use targeted titles and descriptions. When people are looking for your pages using a search engine, these are the first things they will encounter. Thus, they are also the most critical. If you want more control, try using the SEO program, Scribe. This helps you edit these items on your pages to attract more visitors.

Make sure you have the latest versions of all your plugins. These are a great tool that will make your website more powerful. They will update just like normal software. You must be sure to install updates so that you don’t miss important upgrades. Additionally, sometimes plugins stop working if they are not updated regularly.

TIP! Eliminate comments and content that fail to add value to your site. This makes your website more user-friendly.

Internal linking plugins can connect posts and allow readers to view more content. These types of plugins add several links at the end of every post, depending on how relevant the tags of your posts are in your website.

Schedule posts a few days ahead for your blog in WordPress. This way, your posts will be published while you are doing other things. Locate your edit page and find the publish box. Directly beneath this is the notation: PUBLISH IMMEDIATELY. Enter the time you want the post published. This should include the day, month, and year. Then you just select “okay.” When a screen appears for the “schedule for”, check it on and press “Schedule” if the info is correct.

TIP! Get rid of special characters from the URLs of your blog posts. They give search engines difficulty when they are spidering your site, so try to eliminate them altogether.

WordPress has lots to offer for professional bloggers, people who only post every once in a while and people who visit blogs just to read them. The more insight you have into WordPress, the more successful you will be. Make sure to think about this information when you get back to the blogosphere.
