Many people know about blogging and know a little bit about WordPress. But, lots of others still need to gain information about what it can offer. The following information discusses what you need to know about WordPress in order to use it most efficiently.
Be certain your WordPress design is different from other ones. This may be tempting since it’s a time saver, but users will not be too impressed with your effort. Take the time to create a unique site that reflects you and your business.
If your blog post includes a long title, adjust your permalink. For example, “Ten Ways for Smart Parents to Tame Their Kids” would appear as a long, cumbersome URL. Be sure to select only the keywords from your long titles to create your permalinks.
Devote some time to learning about the various options and tools that you have at your fingertips when you use WordPress for blogging. For example, “KITCHEN SINK” gives you more format options on posts. Your admin pages will also have a “SCREEN OPTIONS” tab. This can control an array of formatting features.
Be sure to make use of Title and Alt. This lets you add text to your posts. This will allow you to incorporate more SEO phrases.
It’s easy to incorporate videos on your blog with WordPress. This can involve a bit of a learning curve, but it is well worthwhile. Internet users are typically really visual. One powerful tool is video because it can convey messages more clearly than the written word.
Create a posting schedule. A schedule helps you keep your eye on the deadline; so as the deadline approaches, it may give you more incentive to write that piece. You can even create a week’s worth of content all at once and tell WordPress when to post it to your blog.
Sometimes you spend hours changing your WordPress site, and then think that the changes have not been saved. That is probably not the case. To remedy this, try clearing your browser’s cache. Press and keep holding the Shift key as you refresh your browser, and you should then see your changes.
Unless you change the settings, all your posts will be listed in chronological order. You can change the order of this list by changing the dates on your blog posts. Do this by opening a post, and you’ll see the date in the top right-hand corner. Click the date, choose a new one and save the post to alter its position.
This platform isn’t new and many bloggers have some form of experience using it in the last few years. However, the true potential of WordPress has not always been unleashed by those who have used it. If all goes well, you will not fail in maximizing the potential of this marvelous tool.
