Would you like to have a blog of your own? Maybe you already blog with WordPress, but aren’t happy with its setup. Lots of things can be done to make a blog more appealing. Use the tips below to create an awesome WordPress site.
Use different designs than other blogs on WordPress. While it may seem appealing to use a common design, your readership may not be impressed. You want your site to stand out from others.
It is easy to use video blogging on your WordPress site. This will require you to spend more time prepping, but this is worth it. Many internet users enjoy visuals. Videos can sometimes convey information more quickly and effectively than the written word.
Clean up comments and content that is worthless to your site. This makes your website more user-friendly. Use Akismet if you need a plugin to do this.
Take out any special characters in the URLs of your blog entries. This can make it hard for search engine spiders to search your site, so delete them. Use keywords and short URLs.
You might believe that WordPress has not saved all of the changes you just struggled to make. There is an easy way to ensure your changes have been made. Clear your cache to see if that fixes the problem. Refresh your browser while holding down your shift key to make your changes appear.
Unless you change the settings, all your posts will be listed in chronological order. You must alter the date if you wish to reorder the list. Do this by opening a post. You’ll see the date in the top right. Click the date and change it. Save your post and its order will change.
Improve your position in the SERPs by spending time posting your pictures correctly. Be sure to put in alternate text and title tags. If someone “pins” one of your images on Pinterest, your title will be what shows up on their blog.
Make sure that your greeting is appealing for your WordPress site. A good greeting is more intimate for visitors and can relate to how this visitor found your blog. That will make things seem less formal on your site, and can be arrived at with the Greet Box plugin.
