Blogging 101 – The Complete Guide To Getting Started

You may have a website that is incredibly lame like a lot of electricians that come my way. Maybe it’s something that you built in GoDaddy or somewhere for free or maybe it’s something that someone built for you a while ago or a brother in law, a cousin.

You have to really first understand your market before you can try to sell to them with your content and website. What I mean by this is to present yourself WordPress blogs on your website as someone that your market can trust. If you are in a rock band and are selling your CD on your website, you probably don’t want to have a video on there with you dressed up in a suit sitting at some ritzy desk. And on the other hand, if you are selling a business solution you won’t want to be dressed up as a rocker.

Most prominent premium theme developers create themes that are W3C code compliant. Many free templates are W3C code compliant, but not all. Can you spot the difference? If not, then rest easy with a premium theme.

Many till hemsidan themes can’t be used to their greatest advantage without tweaking their PHP code a bit. Don’t worry, you can usually find instructions on what to do. But hosted blogs don’t give you access to the code. You have to use the same boring themes as all the other customers for that host.

Whenever you want to flip a site, you will need to buy a good, relevant domain name and monetizing the site. These are the 3 main requisites. The domain name that you choose is important. Be sure that it is relevant to the topic of your website. If you are able to, use a relevant keyword, you will get traffic. The search engines rank these types of domain names and sites higher because they think that they are relevant, your job is to make them so and to monetize on that fact. Having said that, if you are not able to find a keyword-rich URL, that’s fine, just make sure that the domain name is applicable to your niche. Google will always reward to those who are relevant.

On your WordPress dashboard scroll down the the bottom of your toolbar menu. Under the Tools menu, open the Import tab. You will see a choice of blogging platforms from which to import your blogs. Choose your blog platform. In my case, it is Blogger. A window will open with all your Blogger blogs listed (at least those that have been updated within the last month or so). I make it a point to update every blog at least once a month, and more obviously with the most popular blogs. If a blog doesn’t show up on the Import window, it’s because you haven’t recently updated it.

But, you beat down almost all risks by selling quality products and always being as honest as you can to your clientele. If you already know the product because you already use it or know someone who is happy with it, then you can talk honestly about it and your potential clientele will never be disappointed. If you are promoting popular brands because they are selling and you don’t know that much about them, then you could run the risk of having to deal with returns.

This can work with any service no matter how they are building you links or getting you traffic. Your just giving them a redirected URL rather than the website’s raw URL. In a few of the very best traffic generation courses I’ve run across, a couple of “experts” talk about tracking every link you have on the internet. No matter what it is for. Sadly, this advice doesn’t seem to be the norm when teaching SEO best practices. But it really should be.
