Yes, you need to put security measures into place. If you’re using WordPress, you need to keep the themes, plugins and WordPress files up to date. This is really easy to do in the WordPress admin area and usually only takes a couple of mouse clicks.
Now that you have some great plugins installed on your site you are ready to start making some posts. It is the content that is king when it comes to being ranked highly in the search engines. If you put up crap expect crappy results. Make sure that anything you write is understandable and is written on a 5th-12th grade reading level for the best results. Not only do the search engines like this, but it is much easier to read when people are busily scanning through your site.
Templates can come in mini-site format, as well as WordPress themes. WordPress sites can help you rank on Google; however, as of late, they have not been ranking as well. Additionally, the wordpress platform is prone to spyware attacks since it is open source, and requires quite a bit of regular updating. But hey, if you have time on your hands, why not?
WordPress is the worlds most widely used content management system available at bare minimum costs with the exception of Blogger. It boasts a host of online support available from both the community of users and WordPress.org themselves.
There are two different ways to add plugins to WordPress. The first one is to go out and find the plugin you are looking for on the internet. You can then download the file that they give you. From there, all you have to do is log in to your WordPress blog and select the add new plugin link. WordPress will then have you point to the file you downloaded and it will automatically upload it into the correct directory.
I am all for people getting started blogging as quickly as possible, so at this stage it shouldn’t be an issue about which WordPress to use. Just get started with WordPress dot COM so that you can get the hang of it. Blogger is even more basic. There’s also a more secure feeling being part of the WordPress online community – and they will make sure the system stays up and running.
Instead, use keyword modifiers to climb to the top of the search results. When I add “marketing strategist” to the same search, the list narrows to 258,000. Now, let’s try copywriter + marketing strategist + self help. Now, the list has narrowed to 65,800. If you really want to narrow your search, add a geographic keyword modifier to your copy. I’m going to add “South Carolina,” since that’s where I currently reside. There i am in the third position on a Google search. Because I am listed in a high-ranking website, I’ve increased my exposure.
There’s no doubt that it’s easier to get started with Google adsense if you have a Blogger account. In fact you can now apply for Adsense from within a Blogger account. Not entirely surprising considering the fact that both are owned by the same company.
