WORDPRESS -WEBHOSTING WORDPRESS
Posted on March 24, 2019 by polype78 inaffiliate marketing
You can build websites using Wix and GoDaddy and many other website builders.
This is a really easy way of creating websites.
For those of us who want to do more advanced features and code like HTMLand really advanced SEO functions.
Hosting your own WordPress site on a web hosting platform is the best way to build a website or blog.
WORDPRESS IS BEST FOR BLOGGERS
WordPress has been gaining massive popularity over the past few years with the blogging community.
A lot of people would class WordPress as a content manager,but is a really good website builder for bloggers.
At first WordPress seems a little bit daunting.
This is because there is a lot of technical things you need to do on the back-end, as well as the front end of your WordPress website.
The rewards for mastering WordPress immense.
WordPress allows you to maximise your SEO for your blogs and website pages.
The top websites and companies in the world love WordPress and its friendly with the Google algorithm.
WORDPRESS HAS FREE PLUGINS
Another great thing about WordPress ar the amount of free plugins that you can install on your WordPress site.
Yoast is a free SEO plugin that I use myself, this plug-in allows you to optimise your blogs and pages.
If you use yoast,you can be found in Google Search results, as well as many other search engines.
WEB HOSTING WITH HOSTGATOR
When you want to create a WordPress website, you will need to first of all register for a web hosting account.
There are many web hosting companies out there and some are better than others, but I found HostGator to be very useful.
HOSTGATOR DISCOUNT CODES
You can get 20% off your web hosting by using the coupon code = SNAPPY
Once you have registered with HostGator you will need to either connect your own domain using the name server settings on your domain provider e.g 1&1, or buy a domain through HostGator.
When you have bought or connected your domain to your hosting package, you will then need to install WordPress in HostGator.
Once you have installed WordPress you will be sent your WordPress website login details via email.
If you are not very tech-savvy, there are plenty of videos on YouTube that go through in fine details of all the steps that you need to perform, when setting up a WordPress website or changing domain name server settings.
When you do use your own domain, it can take 24 to 48 hours for your website to be visible through your domain.
HOW TO BUILD A WORDPRESS SITE
You can build a WordPress website when you log into HostGator look up at popular links and special offers, you will see build a new WordPress site.
Then what you need to do is click on build a new WordPress site and select which domain for installation, then click Next and follow the steps.
When you have installed the WordPress on your hosting platform, you will then need to login to WordPress and choose a theme.
WordPress themes are usually free and make your website look very professional.
When you login to WordPress you will notice near the top of the page, there will be various steps to complete.
One of them will be set up your homepage, write your first blog etc etc.
You can start writing your blogs straight away, but I would suggest that you get the basics of your website sorted.
Sort out a home page out first by clicking on pages then add new.
Once you have done this you will have a fresh page with add title and the body of your page.
Then what you need to do is fill out title, then add content to the body of your page then click publish.
To make sure that your page is seen on your website in the menu, you will then need to click on menus under the appearance section.
Then add pages or posts to your menu by clicking the tick box next to each page or blog post and then click the add to menu button.
Your page or blog will now show up on your website on your menu.
HOW TO VERIFY WORDPRESS WITH GOOGLE SEARCH CONSOLE
Another job that you will need to do in order to get your website found on Google, is to visit Google search console and get your website added I’m verified.
The easiest way of doing this is to click on the top left hand corner of Google search console and add property.
Once you have added property you then need to verify using HTML code.
You’ll need to add this HTML meta tag within WordPress.
This is done by logging into WordPress, clicking on the appearance tab and click on theme editor.
You will then see lots of code, on the right hand side of the screen you will see the theme files like header,footer ect.
Use the scrolling bar and scroll down to theme header.
