Using WordPress To Create Your Own Blog

When you first start using WordPress it can be hard. If you are unsure of how to properly use WordPress, your site could suffer. The tips and techniques located below will turn your site from humdrum to hurray.

Be certain you avoid using the same designs as all the people who have WordPress. Although it can save time to use a standard design, you won’t have a professional image. Creating a site that showcases the uniqueness of your business is critical.

TIP! Be certain your WordPress design is different from other ones. While it may seem appealing to use a common design, your readership may not be impressed.

If the title for a post is long, try cleaning up the permalink. To illustrate this, “The Best Banana Cream Pie Recipe Taught To Me By My Grandmother” would show as a very long URL that can be annoying to your readers. Instead, try making the permalink “tips-parents-uncontrollable-children” or something comparable based on the SEO keywords.

It’s easy to incorporate videos on your blog with WordPress. While you may need to prepare a little more, that makes things worth it. Internet users are a visual group. Videos can show things that words simply cannot, making them a powerful tool.

TIP! Does one of your posts have a lengthy title? If so, use permalink to clean it up. For instance, an overbearing or difficult URL would be along the lines of “Top Tips For Parents of Unruly Children.

Create a schedule for posting. Having a schedule will assist you in getting your posts done on time. In fact, you have the option to write all of your posts in advance and schedule them to be published at regular intervals.

Your posts will always show up in chronological order when you have not specified otherwise. Change the date if you want to rearrange the list. Open a post and look at the upper right hand corner. There you will find the date. Click the date, choose a new one and save the post to alter its position.

TIP! Make it a point to become familiar with all options and tools that are available for working with WordPress. For example, clicking the Kitchen Sink will give you choices such as importing and formatting posts.

Are there lots of people commenting on your posts? It can be hard to look through all of them, for yourself and others. Use a plugin that adds pages to your blog comments. This will improve your blog’s navigation and give your website a more organized look.

Don’t use “admin” as a username. Having admin or administrator as your username makes your blog more likely to be successfully attacked by bots. This is a security risk. Look at each individual page on your site and change admin or administrator usernames. Pick a different username.

TIP! It can happen where you have made changes to your blog on WordPress, only to think that the changes weren’t saved. This most likely is not true.

Security is key to a WordPress site, so be sure to keep passwords to yourself. Your plugin choices should be from reputable sites. If your site is hacked or attacked with malware, you could lose the whole thing.

There is quite a bit involved when it comes to learning about WordPress. While it is impossible to become proficient in just one day, you have made the first step in your quest. Implementing it will improve the quality of your blog. With enough practice, you will be blazing through your posts in no time.

TIP! Allow your users to access your articles easily by email. 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.
