So after you have setup the WordPress blog on your site, you need to maximize its capabilities by having the desired additional features. As you know, the advantage of the WordPress blogging platform is that it is designed as a content management system with the ability to run widgets and plugins. And unless you’re doing this, you’ll not be leveraging the potential of the platform.
Now that you have a blog setup, the one most important thing you can do, is to post on a regular basis, preferably daily or even twice a day. That doesn’t mean you have to write a 600 to 700 word article each time you post. In fact, you can take one post and split it up into two or three parts and post them with the note attached that the next part will be put up later. Soon the spider bots of Google will be visiting your site often. And of course that is what we are aiming for.
There are lots of other little ways to make money helping local businesses though. One easy way is to just help them set up a page on Google Places. Then you could always charge them for extra services such as article writing, social media help, creating videos and ads for their business that you can put on YouTube, helping them with mobile marketing campaigns, or copywriting ideas for their direct marketing.
till bloggen has an admin panel that is very user friendly and you should be able to select themes (from a huge variety), change layout, rename categories, etc with ease. Spend some time customising your blog here, you can also add custom widgets to include further functionality.
Lastly, leaving comments on other people’s WordPress blogs will help you build your brand and raise your profile in the industry. When your name continuously pops up on websites frequented by your target audience, you will begin to attract them to you. This is much better than spending energy chasing after them.
You need to make sure that the control panel is user-friendly because the chances are good that you will be using your hosting company for years. The next thing to look for is a mail host. Some companies permit you to have as many mail accounts as you may want but they do limit the storage capability to one gigabyte. Others will permit you to have a set number of mail accounts but there is no limit in place. Do not neglect to read about the restrictions, if any, on the mail accounts.
Don’t be to worried about setting up your wordpress as most web hosts that provide Cpanel also provide Fantastico. This allows you to have a wordpress blog setup very quickly without you worrying about the technicalities.
Content is King: Despite all the above the most important thing in WordPress SEO is good quality search engine optimised content. This includes ensuring that you have good titles, use your keyword in the right places at the right density (too much can be worse than not enough), include graphics with the right tags, have internal links with correct anchor text and have no-follow external links. You can install a plugin to check this for you.
