My main blogging resource for blogging is Google’s Blogger, or Blogspot product. I also maintain a free WordPress blog, Marking Mar . WordPress has an Import tool that pulls up posts from my Blogger blogs to my WordPress blog. Here’s how to Import with WordPress.
Many WordPress bloggen 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.
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 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.
The next rule for optimization is to start off your post with your keyword phrase being the very first words of your post. For instance, “To travel with my dog fido is an experience all of it’s own” Bla Bla Bla…
B. It’s search friendly. I’ve talked about it earlier that when you have a WordPress blogs site, just by the very nature of it, if content is added monthly which is what we do for our electrician clients but you can do it yourself as well. If content in the form of pages and blog posts are added each month to your site then search engines love that. By search engines I mean Google, Yahoo and Bing. The three of them account for about 95% of searches. We want to get found when people search for terms like electrician and electrical contractors, etcetera, and if you have a WordPress site with content being added monthly or weekly that is keyword targeted in our content and it’s created in a certain way, those Google search engines and Yahoo search engines are much more likely to find you.
So in summary, run some pay per click to find out what your buying keywords are, and monitor Google Analytics to know where people are converting from.
