WordPress is one of the most popular and more frequently used Content Management Systems worldwide, mostly because it is pretty simple to use it and manage it further, as your site or blog develops. It is very easy once you get started, but first you need to learn some basics, so you would be able to manage and maintain your blog or site.
Choose your password and username
Username you choose is not as important as you might think. Your site or blog won’t be named by your username, so you can use any word/words as your username. Below the username field, you will find a field for entering your password.
Get a strong password
Your password, however, is very important, so you could make sure that only you could manage and maintain your site. Password should be unique and tricky, containing characters and numbers, preferably switching from Capital to regular letters.
What to avoid when choosing your password
You should avoid making your name a password, for it may be obvious and easily cracked. You can for example make your password to be something like: “DoN’t1ToUcH2My3PaSs”. By using capitals, characters and numbers combined, chances that your password remains secret are fairly increased.
When signing up on WordPress, you can click on “show” button, to make sure you typed it correctly and avoid retyping.
Picking your Web address
When registering on WordPress, you can choose your address to be free, or you can as well purchase it. The differences are present, of course, considering the fact that when you choose your site to be free, which I available for every user, your web address would look like this: http://mywebsite.wordpress.com.
Paid WordPress hosting Web address
In case you choose to pay for your web address, your address would be: http://mywebsite.com, which most people prefer when starting a business. And in fact, if you are in fact running a business, it would be the best if you choose to pay for your domain, instead of getting a free web address. If you are running a private blog, both solutions can apply.
Web address opportunities
Besides .com extension, you can also add .net, .org or any other, but have in mind that prices vary from one to another domain name. When choosing your web address name, make sure that the name you have chosen is directly related to your company, describing your business in a relevant way.
Choosing the WordPress Plan
You can choose between Basic, Premium and Business plan which are different in options, features and vary in prices. Basic is, of course, free, so if you are still not sure which plan would suit you the best, you can always stick to a free solution until you decide what you want from your site.
A WordPress plan to meet your needs
Basic plan also has all basic WordPress features, just as Premium and Business plans, including great themes, friendly customer support and unlimited bandwidth, so you can create your own customized website or blog for free and stick to it using great number of amenities, and if you decide, you can always switch to Premium or Business plan at very affordable prices.

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.
If you happen to face any of the situation listed above, here’s how to change it:
ü In the WordPress backend, go to the Edit screen for the post or page you wish to edit.
ü Just below the title, click the gray “Edit” button next to the permalink. If instead of “Edit,” you see a button that says “Change Permalinks,” Click that button and click the “Post name” radio button on the “Permalink Settings” page. Then click the blue “Save Changes” button. Go back to the post or page you wish to edit and you should see the “Edit” button.
ü When you click “Edit,” the URL will change to a text box, ready for you to alter. Remove special characters and any words that could hurt your search engine rankings. Make sure you also separate each word with a dash (-).
ü Click the gray “OK” button.
ü Click the blue “Publish” or “Update” button to save your changes.
3. WordPress Editor Tips
Even though you have managed to post a blog, chances are, you haven’t realized its full potential yet. Here’s some WordPress tool you to speed up your workflow and eliminate misspellings and website styling issues.
vSpellcheck in the WordPress Editor
vRemove Formatting from Copied Text

For a full list of WordPress “Hotkeys,” click the “Help” button with the question mark on the WordPress editor, then click the “Hotkeys” tab.

You can easily embed content from popular websites likeYouTube, Vimeo, Twitter, Hulu, Flickr and Viddler. Here’s how.
ü Put your cursor wherever you want to insert the media.
ü Go to the media’s source site and copy the URL for the media you’d like to insert.
ü Now go back to the WordPress editor and paste the URL into the main content area of the page.
ü If the URL you pasted appears in the main content area of the editor as a blue link, you need to unlink it. Click within the URL text, then click the broken link icon at the top of the main content area. The text should unlink.
ü Click the gray “Preview Changes” button on the top-right of the page to make sure the media has embedded correctly. You’ll see the YouTube video we embedded now displays within our content.

So you have set up your e-commerce online store with product pictures, specifications, features, and pricings, but you haven’t seen the number of people visiting on it go up?
It’s time that you look deep and analyze why you aren’t reaching out to the “right” kind of people.
Most of the time, people are usually leave their product page that contains specifications, pricings, features in bullet points, and technical jargon product description that doesn’t help both search engines and your visitors know what you’re selling.
Othertimes, the content simply aren’t specific enough to target buyers in the market because you may not be using proper keywords phrase that people often use to search for products like yours.
Here are 5 handy tips to reach out to the “right” audience for your e-commerce website:
1. Write “Content-Rich” Product Descriptions –
Writing “content-rich” product descriptions means including as much information about a product or services in an easy to read manner.
Before writing product description, it’s better to think about all the possible keyword terms your “targeted” audience use to search for it. Once you have the list of keywords, you next job is to create a thorough description that includes those keywords.
Make sure to include those keywords in a natural way. “Unnatural” keyword stuffing will only lead to Google punishing your site.
Make sure to use easy to read, jargon-free, and informative content that includes your major keywords.
2. Create “Relevant” Blog Posts related to Your Products –
Once you’ve creating “content-rich” product reviews, do not be tempted to leave it just like it or promote using social media sites or article submission articles.
Remember Google loves information rich resources that help their users find what they’re looking for? “But what’s wrong with the “content-rich” product descriptions we created earlier?” I hear you scream!
I can understand but unless your website is a well-established site like Amazon, you cannot get high rankings for your product descriptions. In other words, you cannot just rank for product descriptions.
In Google’s eye, you have to establish yourself as someone who’s passionate about their niche: someone who likes to share ideas tips, and more free information to people who are searching for.
So go ahead and just do that. Create a blog section and publish posts that are relevant to products on your online stores. If you’re running out of ideas, you could share the benefits, pros, cons, or write honest reviews, and so on.
Include links to your product pages to allow people to navigate to your store when they’re ready to buy products from you.
3. Spread your content on relevant sites –
Now that you have a great product description and blog posts, your online store is ready for traditional marketing techniques.
You can be creative here and use your imagination to share your content in number of ways, including writing guest post for others, submitting useful tips on content sharing sites like Dropbox, or submitting them on articles directories and your social profiles.
Personally, I share my content on social profiles like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Google+. Make sure to join “highly relevant” groups there to reach out to the “right” target audience, really fast.
4. Include backlinks to your blogs posts –
During publishing your blogs or product description pages on external sites as mentioned above, make sure to include a backlink in the signature, or author box.
Include keywords or title of the landing page on the “name” field, the actual landing page on the URL field, and offer a thoughtful comment on the blog or forums you’re dropping your content.
This way, your articles, comments, or threads are more likely to be accepted.
5. Do not forget to use Social Profiles –
In order to rank higher in search engine results, your website has to be well-established and active on third-party websites, your social profiles, and other external websites.
Do not settle if you’ve managed to reach the “right” audience after performing the above four steps.
You can still go one step further to “truly” establish yourself as an industry expert. Once you’ve managed to create a strong online presence, you do NOT have to invest anymore. People on your networks will help promote your business automatically.
So do us a favor – post a brief product information and blog content on your social media profiles. In addition, bookmark your content on popular social bookmarking sites.
When Google finds that your backlinks are coming from variety of sources, not just from search engine results, automatically they’ll love your online store and increase your rankings.
We would like to hear from you. Tell us any handy tips to reach out to the right audience for your e-commerce website (comment below).
https://getyoursiterank.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/Where-are-Your-Website-Visitors-coming-from-.jpg 555 2000 Online Ion https://getyoursiterank.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/logo.png Online Ion2013-08-21 17:00:512016-07-02 10:44:49Where are Your Website Visitors coming from?
So you have been successful at driving traffic to your site but haven’t paid any attention as to where your visitors may have come from?
In search marketing sphere, we need to be aware of where our visitors had been in order to figure out what they are trying to accomplish on our site.
Our website traffic is arriving from 2 different sources: search results and display ads.
Let’s simplify so that you understand why traffic from these two sources might be doing on your site and how you need to tweak little things in your site, like your posts (landing page) for example, in order to address their needs.
You see, search engine traffic wants something instantly, such as solution to their problem, more information about a product, and basically everything else.
On the other hand, traffic generated through the display ad is made up from those curious ones whom you have managed to distract from whatever they were searching for on the referring site.
As each visitor is from different sources, your landing page also needs to be slightly different too. That means the 2 universes MUST also land on 2 different posts, or 2 different landing pages.
The Search Universe
Traffic coming from the search universe essentially wants to find answers about a product or a service.
With this clue, you can design a landing page that offers answers to their pressing questions by imagining what their questions may be!
Just consider, what would they ask if they were to call your business?
For example, if someone was searching for the keyword phrase, “domain names registration services,” wouldn’t that translate into “Hey, I would like to give me your quick quotation for domain name packages?”
Once you’ve framed your visitors’ intention, it would be easier for you to imagine how your landing page would be like, wouldn’t it?
On the other hand, you DO NOT want to create a “Welcome to our Domain Name Business Site!” page that talks about when you started your business, how many people work at your firm.
No, you do not want that to happen!
They simply want a catalog home page (using professional pictures) that clearly highlights each category of services.
The Display Universe
Although display visitors are slightly difficult to figure out, nonetheless, they still do leave some clues that can help you to help them.
Just pay attention to ads they click, or the site where they might have seen those ads.
Additionally, if you use display ads among certain niche, or topics, or keywords, you can quickly understand who your traffic are and what do they want in general.
For instance, people who just left your domain name registration site last week may be tempted by a coupon offer for the item they had almost purchased.
Once you have a clear idea as to where your visitors are coming from and what their intentions are, you can devise a landing page accordingly.
For example, an audience of photographer whose search term and browsing behavior clearly shows them to be an enthusiastic about “DSLR camera supplies,” you can then focus your energy on crafting out a page that helps them how to make their next shots amazing.
On the other hand, visitors coming from an ad display network who have just read an article about “Ways of placing Buddha statues,” would likely appreciate a page that offers them specific information about those particular techniques.
Additionally, you can also look for other clues to find out where they may have just been and their mindset of their visitors, like Geography (country, state, region, or city they searched through), as well as the time of the day, and even, day of the week.
While city dwellers may just be hobbyists, tourists in a foreign land may be running a “DSLR Studios.”
Similarly, while weekend or even evening visitors may just be hobbyists, visitors who come to your site during work day may be professional photographers.
Just remember, while there might be several different ports of entry to a country, however, there will only be one from a particular place.
Likewise, while they may be hundreds of different ways for your visitors to find your site, nonetheless, each of them arrived from one specific place.
Not to mention, they all arrived with a passport stamp that tells where exactly they had been.

There are 5 different types of redirects you need to know about: 301, 302, 303, 307, and 308 redirects.
In this guide, we’ll explain what each redirect translates to and when to use 301 redirect and other redirects:
1. 301 Permanent Redirect (permanent redirect) –
What does this redirect mean? The link you are trying to visit isn’t here anymore. The URL has moved to a new address.
In theory, the server is trying to tell that the files (web page or blog post) at the address have moved to somewhere else permanently. This status usually tells the site owner that old address must be deleted and replaced with the new address.
When to use 301 redirects?
If you are going to delete a page, you can use the 301 redirect to forward visitors to the next location.
If you decide to make one version of the same page (often squeeze page) unavailable in favor of another, you can 301 the former.
