WordPress How To

Pin It

WordPress is the most popular content management system in the world. Most people think that WordPress is just for blogging. This concept could not be farther from the truth. You can use WordPress to create beautiful websites that are highly functional for personal and business use. Many of the sites that I create are hybrid websites. This means that they have static elements but also incorporate the ability to make updates easily. For example, most traditional blogs show different content on the home page or it is always changing with updates. In WordPress I like to declare my home page static and have the updates show in a different area, like in the side bar. Setting it up in this manner gives you the best of both worlds. You can create a great looking site which will give all you visitors the same experience on the home page as well as being able to provide updates in an organized manner. Doing Search Engine Optimization in WordPress is very simple. Some themes have fields for the meta data built right in.

If not, you simply need to install All in One Seo from the Plugin directory in the dashboard. With the seo plugin just place your title, description and keywords in the appropriate blanks and click update. If you are not familiar with WordPress Plugins do not worry. Plugins are programs that you can download for free that will give your site additional functionality. For example, if you need a contact us form and do not know how to make one, you can just download a plugin like cforms. There is no need to code html from scratch to create a form. Putting new content into a WordPress website is very simple. If you know how to use Microsoft Word you can use WordPress. In fact the wysiwyg editor looks and acts very much like Word.
