There isn’t anything better than having a blog to share your opinions on. That is why WordPress is so popular. Continue reading for information on getting the most out of WordPress.
Don’t choose a design that looks like every other WordPress site. It is tempting to try doing this to save time, but users won’t think much of it. You should have a site that showcases your individual business.
Become familiar with the options and tools that are at your disposal when you blog with WordPress. For instance, the button “kitchen sink” gives you a plethora of choices for formatting and importing content into your posts. Also check out “screen options” for admin functions. That will help you with formatting.
WordPress can help you include video blogging on your site. Although you may have to put in a little more time, you will get rewarded for your effort in the end. Visuals grab your readers’ attention. People enjoy videos, and a video that explains things well can grab their attention faster than words can.
Clean everything that adds no value to your site, such as extraneous comments and content. You want to make your site as user-friendly as possible. A good plugin to include which can help filter daily spam on the site is Akismet.
You may change your blog and update it, but then notice nothing has been saved. This most likely is not true. Clear your cache to see if that fixes the problem. Refresh your browser while holding down your shift key to make your changes appear.
Are there lots of people commenting on your posts? In these instances, it might be hard to navigate the comment section. Consider a page number plugin to simplify this. Navigation will be significantly easier, and the site itself will appear far more organized.
Be sure that your readers can forward your posts to their emails whenever they desire. This is important for sharing purposes as well, as many users may not be able to access Facebook or Twitter at work but may want to share your articles with friends. You can use the Email plugin in WordPress to do this.
Never use the term “admin” or anything similar for your username. Your blog is more vulnerable to attack by bots if you choose this as your username. That’s a security risk. If you see these usernames on your pages, delete them. Select a different user name.
Blogs have become massively popular across the world, and it is easy to see why. You have the chance to get all kinds of different things out there to a much larger audience. Use the information above to make doing this on WordPress so much easier.
