WordPress can be quite tricky when it comes to publishing blog entries. You don’t get the results or experience that you want if you don’t know WordPress well enough. Read on for some useful tips to help make your blog more professional.
Does one of your posts have a lengthy title? If so, use permalink to clean it up. For instance, “101 Ways for Smart People to Manage Their Children” is way too long for a URL. Choose something simpler like “intelligent-parents-manage-children”.
Be sure to make use of Title and Alt. Use your Title and Alt. text tags when you use images in blog posts. This will give you more space to use for SEO phrases. Additionally, it will help viewers whose images are turned off know what is on the page.
When you are ready to start posting, create a schedule. A schedule helps you keep your eye on the deadline; so as the deadline approaches, it may give you more incentive to write that piece. You can actually make all of your posts for a week in one day. You can then schedule it so WordPress will upload some of these posts at a later date.
Remove unnecessary content and delete comments that fail to add value. In this way, your site will be inviting and comfortable for your users. You can filter spam every day with the plugin known as Akismet.
Posts are always shown chronologically, until you say otherwise. You must start by altering the date. Open a post and look at the upper right hand corner. There you will find the date. Click the date, make the necessary modification, then save. This procedure will change its position.
Do your posts attract lots of comments? If so, it can be hard to weed through all of these comments. Look for a plugin to add page numbers at the end of the comments section. That way, navigation will be simpler, and your site is sure to be well organized.
There is much to learn when it comes to WordPress. You will be an improved blogger by using the tips above. If you practice, you’re going to blaze through posts more quickly then you imagine.
