Are you ready for your website? Don’t know where to start? Follow these simple instructions and get your website and blog up and running in 10 minutes. Follow the simple SEO rules for maintaining and boosting your ranking.
Step 1– www.godaddy.com Register a domain name. Choose a name that will reflect your business and not just your business name, but the type of business you do. Sign Up for Monthly Hosting with WordPress already installed. I own this domain, and registering domains and hosting are very inexpensive. Once Your register your domain. Get hosting! Go Daddy offers hosting with WordPress installed. Select the hosting package, so you don’t have to install WordPress. The lowest package is all you need.
Step 2- Select Your WordPress theme. Your theme should be easy to use and understand, navigate through the site, and easy to use. There are free ones you can install; you can purchase ready-made ones on tons of websites.
Step 3: Install Plugins– I recommend the following plugins.
Contact forms- There are plenty to choose from- Just go into the plugins, click to add new ones, and search contact forms.
Social Media integration- Again, there are a lot of Social Media Integration plugins- Search and find one that looks interesting to you. If you need help setting up your site- Send me a message, and I will be happy to help you.
Step 4: Add Pages and Posts to your Site- Click on the add button and add photos and posts to your pages. It’s straightforward, and when you finish clicking on the publish button. You can view your changes and make edits as much as you want. Use keywords when you write your posts and name the pages at the top. Do not leave the auto-filled information- Change it to call the center.
Update your site with posts at least one time a week. I try to update the places I have as much as possible. Daily is even better. Search engines love updates to your site.
Enjoy your new site!!
