Virtually everyone these days knows a little about WordPress. However, to really take advantage of this fabulous tool, one must possess as much knowledge as possible. The tips below can help better things and teach you about WordPress.
Make sure you choose a unique design instead of the same one as everyone else. It is tempting to try doing this to save time, but users won’t think much of it. Create something that shows your unique flair.
Spend some time getting to know all of WordPress’s tools and options. For example, clicking on KITCHEN SINK gives you many more choices in formatting and importing that set your posts apart. Also, notice SCREEN OPTIONS on your administrator pages. Use this section to change many of your formatting elements.
Remove any special characters in the URLs of your blog posts. This can hassle those search engines, so the characters are best removed. Make your URLs short with a few keywords so visitors will get a sense of order when they visit your site.
Unless you modify it, all posts will be in chronological order. To change it, modify the date. Do this by opening a post. You’ll see the date in the top right. Select the date and make your changes; then, save the post to make the position change permanent.
Are your posts receiving a considerable number of comments? It may have become a challenge to sift through all of them. Try using a plugin that adds page numbers to the comment section. This way, navigation will be simpler, and you can organize your site better.
You can up your rank with the search engines by taking a bit of time with your pictures during upload sessions. Be sure to add alternate and title tags to every picture. The title you add will be what appears on Pinterest if someone “pins” your image.
