Using WordPress for your First Three Pages

Having now used WordPress, from my own experience, so long as you have some experience in using other software such as Microsoft Word then you will find navigating around WordPress easy.

Its not exactly the same but it is a slimmed down version of other processing programs.

Once you have your new blank post, Write the Title of the page where you see “Enter title here” and then you can move below to start to write in the blank space below.

Just like in Word, you have a variety of formatting options, including bold, italic, text alignment and hyperlinking (if you want to link to another site).  To use these options, simply select the text you want to format and click the appropriate button.

WordPress Features That You Need to Know About

I struggled with the basics of using WordPress when I first started and so here is a basic guide on how to start your first page or post.

3-Pages-You-Need-When-Starting-A-New-Blog-Wordpress-2

  1. As mentioned above click on Add Post to bring up a new page post for you to complete
  2. Write down your title of the page – make this as compelling as possible and make sure that you have some SEO words mentioned.  Use keywords and make it as close to the way someone would search for your content on Google.
  3. The format ribbon is where you will find the different formatting icons
  4. You start to write your information in the white large box.  Feel free top use bullets, numbers and take advantage of using different Paragraphs settings to make sure that you titles stand out.
  5. If you set up your categories then this will where you can add or assign your page to a category.
  6. On the top right you will see Text icon – this is what you would click and then you will see the HTML code.  If you want to paste any HTML then this is where you would do this.
  7. If you still need to work on the post then you can Save Draft and then feel free to come back to the page to edit further
  8. Once your Page is ready then you can click the blue Publish icon and the page will be on your site.

Creating Your “About Me” Page

To establish a brand online in any niche, you need to build trust with your audience. The best way to initially do this is through an “about me” style page. Every successful website will have some information about their brand, who they are and why they want to help people.

Your first task is going to be to create your About Me page.  Once a reader has landed on your site and has fallen for your rich content they want to dive in deeper to get to know more about you – this shows them credibility.

You need to make sure that this is not just a biography but is a warm and very welcoming page, where you can connect with the reader.  Make sure that you consider the following:

1.Be creative

2.Have honesty around yourself

3.Show passion around your niche

Other elements that can go in to your bio which will have a great impact:

1.Photo of yourself or you and your family

2.Photo of your pet

3.Have links to other posts within your site

4.Demonstrate credibility and include a professional biography down the bottom of your About Me page.

5.Show your social media links

Here are four great About Me pages to inspire you.

Make sure that you show your reader that you are a human, just like them.

Adding Your “Privacy Policy” Page

All major affiliate programs and all advertising platforms require that you have a “Privacy Policy” on your website. This is a formality more than anything and it is very much a standardized document.

You need to have a privacy policy page if you’re collecting any form of personal information including: names, email addresses, shipping addresses (and billing addresses if different), and account and credit card details. A privacy policy will explain to site visitors what happens to the personal information they give you.

Here are some of the best privacy policy generator tools that you can use to create a free privacy policy page for your website.

A Draft Privacy Policy You Can Copy

Here I have a draft Privacy Policy if you want to copy and all you have to do is put in your URL where I have highlighted in red:

Privacy Policy for URL ADDRESS HERE

If you require any more information or have any questions about our privacy policy, please feel free to contact us.

At URL ADDRESS HERE, the privacy of our visitors is of extreme importance to us. This privacy policy document outlines the types of personal information that are received and collected by URL ADDRESS HERE and how it is used.

Log Files

Like many other Web sites, URL ADDRESS HERE, makes use of log files. The information inside the log files includes internet protocol ( IP ) addresses, type of browser, Internet Service Provider ( ISP ), date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement around the site, and gather demographic information. IP addresses, and other such information are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable.

Cookies and Web Beacons

URL ADDRESS HERE does not use cookies.

DoubleClick DART Cookie

Google, as a third party vendor, uses cookies to serve ads on URL ADDRESS HERE.

Google’s use of the DART cookie enables it to serve ads to users based on their visit to URL ADDRESS HERE and other sites on the Internet.

Users may opt out of the use of the DART cookie by visiting the Google ad and content network privacy policy at the following URL –http://www.google.com/privacy_ads.html

Some of our advertising partners may use cookies and web beacons on our site.

These third-party ad servers or ad networks use technology to serve the advertisements and links that appear on URL ADDRESS HERE and send directly to your browsers.

You can opt out of all communication with URL ADDRESS HERE simply by leaving this page.

If you wish to disable cookies, you may do so through your individual browser options. More detailed information about cookie management with specific web browsers can be found at the browsers’ respective websites.

Affiliate Disclaimer

If you have any affiliate links on your site then you will need to cover your back and have a disclaimer. Many sites do not contain an Affiliate Disclaimer and that can lead to criminal penalties.

Here is the text you can copy

Affiliate Disclosure

"When you buy something from this website, I may receive an affiliate commission.

 These are my opinions and are not representative of the companies that create these products.

 My reviews are based on my personal own experience and research.

 I never recommend poor quality products, or create false reviews to make sales.

 It is my intention to explain products so you can make an informed decisions on which ones suit your needs best."

Finally Publish as a Page

Once you have written up your three separate pages on About me, Privacy Policy and Affiliate Disclaimer, you need to publish them as Pages and not posts.

The reason you want to create these as a Page, not a Post is because Pages don’t allow for comments. You don’t want people commenting on your Privacy Policy, whereas you are going to want to allow for comments and engagement on the rest of your website (as it is good for rankings).

After you publish your three pages, you are going to want to log into the back office of your website (WordPress Admin area). When you are within the editor for this page, scroll down to the bottom of the page and you will see the following settings.

 

start-a-blog-wordpress

Check off the Robots Meta NOINDEX and the Robots Meta NOFOLLOW. These will make sure this page does not get indexed in Google.

You are all set with your first few pages of content on your website. Starting a new blog wordpress is easy when you know how to start.
