Do you want to create a blog? Are you new to this and do not know how to start? Do not worry, from MarKetingneando we offer you some small tips so that the creation of your blog is not so complicated.
1. Domain name
It is the main and most important. Follow the guidelines that we indicated in our previous post ” How to choose a good domain name ”
2. Choose the template
There are many sites both free and paid online to find a template to your liking. It’s a matter of time and patience but I’m sure you’ll find it.
Think about the categories that you will want in your blog. In my case they were Web Design, Domains, Positioning and Social Networks but you can put as many as you want.
4. Contact Form
Basic if you want your audience to be able to contact you. I recommend the Contact Form 7 plugin . It works great and it is very easy to configure.
5. Install the indispensable plugins for any WordPress
– Antispam: Akismet
– SEO Positioning: All in One SEO Pack
– Security: Better WP Security
– Analytics: Google Analytics for WordPress
– Sitemaps: Google XML Sitemaps
– Subscriptions: Jetpack
– Photos: NextGEN Gallery
– Social bookmarks : Shareaholic | share buttons, analytics, related content
– Text editor: TinyMCE Advanced
– Avatar: User Avatar
– Pagination: WP-PageNavi
– Author Rank: Google+ Author Information in Search Results
6. Create and insert a robots.txt file.
A robots.txt file on a website will function as a request that specifies that certain robots ignore specific files or directories in their search.
And as I know, maybe the most complicated is the installation of wordpress, here I leave you with a video that explains how you can configure wordpress.com or wordpress.org 😉
