Having a hard time figuring out all the tricks of WordPress posting. Well you don’t need to look farther. Because I’m going to give you some quick and easy steps which you can remember and apply to get your WordPress posting up and running. Soon, you will experience an elusive “Ah-ha!” moment.
1. Schedule Blog Posts for the Future
It’s important to have a scheduled posting time like once a month, once a week or once a day. But that doesn’t mean you need to be in front of your computer when the post goes live. You can just schedule it. Here’s how.
In the WordPress backend, go to the Edit screen for the post you wish to schedule.
ü In the top-right of the page, look for a box titled “Publish,” where you’ll find an option that says “Publish immediately.”
ü Click the blue “Edit” text next to “Publish immediately” and select the month, date, year and time you want your post to be published. Remember to use military time (3:00 p.m. would be 15:00).
ü Click the gray “OK” button. The “Publish immediately” text should now change to “Schedule for,” with whatever date and time you have chosen.
ü If you’re ready to go, click the blue “Schedule” button (formerly “Publish”). Your post is set to go.
2. Change Your Page and Blog Post URLs
WordPress usually takes care of the trouble of creating URLs for your pages or posts. In some cases you need to adjust and here’s why:
Your page or post URL contains special characters like %, &, $, @, or *. These characters make it difficult for search engines to read and can be problematic for browsers, potentially preventing some of your pages from loading.
Your post or page title is really long and contains words not optimized for search.Search engines prefer shorter URLs, so it’s worth removing words that won’t help the posts or page’s ranking.
