If you close one of your sites and choose to repost your original work on a new site, will you get any negative response from the search engines or anything? Is it safe as long

You can share your post via social media

It's not a good idea to have duplicate content but you can indicate on the post that it is a re-Blog from a previous site and you should be fine. Just keep it to a minimum. Good luck.

Thanks for the advice!

I think Google's Hummingbird and Pandora algorithms may take into account cross site actions like this and penalize. I would verify with Google Analytics or other Google advice.

Thanks! I'll do that.

I'm using Twenty Fifteen and have updated to Word Press 4.4. I have put in my menu, my categories, and my tags, but I'm having a problem getting my posts onto my pages. I wonde

Ok, I use Twenty Fifteen on all 3 of my sites, so maybe I can help you. You mentioned static pages, blogs and I just need to understand how you have everything layed out.
I use my blog roll as the landing page and not a static page.is that what you are doing?
Ed

Thanks, Ed! Do you do regular blog posts as well? Did you set up the pages first? What I'm having problems with, I think, is in getting the blog posts to rest under the associated page. I want that page to always pull the most recent blog post and list previous ones for viewing. Does this make sense?

I'm having a little difficulty understanding the posts resting under the associated page. The way I see it is blogs and posts are 2 seperate entities. First, your blogs will always go to your blog roll. Your pages go to the backend. They are called higherarchy. You can associate your posts to your pages by hyperlinking your post to the page of your choice. When you write a post, you go to the page of your choice that you want to link to. Highlight the url in your browser and copy it then go to your post and highlight a few words in your text and enter the url into the paperclip looking thing in your dashboard then click add. You are now linked from your post to your page of of your choosing. In that way you can associate blogs to pages. You can even link posts to posts by using the same method.
Ed

Thanks for clarifying. I think I am equating blog with posts. Can you point me to training or something that shows how to set up the blog roll. I believe that is my missing piece.

Blogs posts and articles are all the same thing. The post can be called the landing page when it's the last post written because that is the blog people will land on when they come to your website. Your pages are in the backend of the website and they are considered to be higherarchy simply because they are in the backend of your website. I hope that this is helpful and not adding to your confussion. In my mind I keep posts or blogs or articles seperate from pages. I have 8 pages and 26 posts in my 1st website. In my new website I have 6 pages and 5 blogs. In the end I will have way more posts than pages.
Ed

Thanks much for your help!

You're welcome...
Ed

When I set up a website, I do what is required. Usually it is required by Kyle for you to do a privacy policy page, about me page and a getting started page, plus 3 pages about your niche. That's a total of 6 pages.
After that all I mostly write is posts. Again posts, blogs, and articles are all synonymous. That's why I said in the end I will have way more posts than pages. As a matter of fact WordPress only allows 100 pages max. Blogs are indefinite.
Ed

That's good to know. And I want to keep freedom to create the ongoing information.

What you want to do might not work with the Twenty Fifteen theme. I am working on a new website with 4 pages of blog posts but I am using the Weaver XTreme theme.

You can look at the second site on my profile page to see it if you like. The first 3 pages in the menu are static while the last 4 are blog rolls.

Might this be what you are looking for?

Tom, that does look like what I'm trying to do. Thank you for sharing this.

Please have a look here, I think you will find some answers

Thank you so much!

No problem, see if this helps and let me know if you need help in some specific steps.

I just got to look at this closely, Jovo, and I think it will be helpful. I'm wondering if it's smarter to just allow the categories to take control, but I really wanted to section the posts onto specific pages so that the purpose of each is clear. Which gives a cleaner view, in your opinion?

I use such post-pages with drop down menu containing posts. I have seen some other people doing the same.

I'm interested in a method that allows you to create a niche site with a store page in which you can set up specific items from affiliates. It looks like a regular purchasing p

Hi Gwendolyn,
Wow!! Great idea! Sounds very doable. What if you click airplane icon, click links & tracking, click sign up page and use that to put your shop on. You can design your shop and import it to the sign up page instead of having a sign up page? Maybe that would work? You're going to have to design the shop anyway.
silversmith

I'll look at that idea. Thanks!

Hello,

When I hear store and website, I think: WooCommerce...

Also something to check, just as info:

Grtz,
Bert

You are awesome, Bert!

Thanks! ;-) No, glad I can help... :-)

Go to Izpowashere's profile and look at their list of websites...they have a retail store listed there.
Cheers!
Val

You are welcome. It is a great example of exactly what you are asking about :-)

Thanks!

I think so!

Did you watch Jay's Niche Case Study 4 part video training?
It would be helpful to you! He built a niche website 'live' for us walking through every step.

No, but I will. Thank you for pointing me there!

Hmmmm I have a product gallery on my website? Is that what you are trying to do?
The products are displayed on my post, with sorting options, price, etc... and when visitors click on the product it takes them to the official brand page, which will earn me a commission if they go on and buy something

That might work for what I want. Can I get a link and see what it looks like on your site?

Cool! Did you build this here at WA and simply incorporated your own site links from the business? I'm interested in the formatting and how you were able to stack the products on the page. Did this require a specific plug-in?

Thanks for sharing!

Yes I built it here at WA and inserted links from my business at ItWorks.
I used a plugin called "Ultimate Product Catalog Plugin"
=)

Thank you!

You're welcome! =)

never hear ot it but it is easy to find a niche as the world is full of endless possibilities - right

I have a potential referral, but he only has a smart phone to work with. Does anyone else work with only a phone? Is it possible?

Thank you all for great information and advice.

I am legally blind and I use a smartphone for lots of web stuff... but not by chIoice. If a computer is available, I use it. I have 4 at home but when I am not at home, I use the Smart Phone. I am getting the $49.00 Fire Tablet in a few days so that will become my GO TO device.

If it is the only way to do and you can access site Rubix, you could do it. Like Marions take also perhaps a cross over phone/library computer. I have been using a smart phone as a way of engaging with WA when out and about.

I think most libraries have computer access. It could be done that way but it would be more difficult.

Thanks, Marion. I will suggest that he use public access for the heavy stuff and use the phone for maintenance. I'm not sure yet if he's serious, but that's what the free trial is for.

If the phone is capable of copy-paste and dual screens. It can be done, it will take more time. Tablet works better. Get a cheep tablet.
John

Even if I could, I wouldn't, and the reason is very fundamental -- I can't type as fast on a smartphone as I can with a desktop/laptop. And I'm sure there will be things that will be clumsy to do. Imagine dragging/dropping custom menu items back and forth in such a small screen (If WordPress would even have a screen for that). Ugh!

That was my thinking, too. I'm not very technical, and I don't think my friend is, either.

I guess anything is possible --- I would struggle
