Day 22 - Learn How to Build a Website Yourself in WordPress 2017

Last Update: June 10, 2017

Hey there and a Big Welcome to Day 22 of Learn How to Build a Website Yourself in WordPress 2017 – let’s keep moving on!

NOTE:

In order to see any of the previous day’s posts – check out My Posts blog roll on the bottom right hand side.

A recap on what I did yesterday – Day 21:

· Decided I would be creating an Authority Site

· Started with Jays training on doing exactly that:

· https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/authority-site-development-process/the-9-phases-of-site-development

· Started with the 9 Phases that Jay outlines starting with Phase 1: Define the Scope of the Project

· Went through the 5 W’s - Who, What, When, Where and Why

So Today…

It’s all on!

Now that I’ve made my decision to build a Relative Authority Site I wanted to do a bit of research about what the specifics are for creating an authority site, apart from what Jay has put together.

So my first question was “What IS an Authority Site?”

By asking this question it showed me what I would need to have in place, or even a plan in place, for all of the aspects of an Authority Site.

An Authority Site is like a typical niche site except with more:

· Different types of traffic sources

· Methods of monetization

· Different types of business models

With an authority site you keep building it which means more opportunity to increase your revenue.

Readers see an authority site as more trusted, more up to date and apparently more reliable. This in turn, creates return visitors, which then builds a following.

These sites usually start out as smaller niche sites and because they are constantly being worked on in terms of the growth in content, they naturally become authority sites.

The idea for any website is that people should be glad that they found your site because of its helpfulness AND usefulness – creating an authority site is EXACTLY what this is about.

It sounds like I have my work cut out, something I’m definitely looking forward to as even the product range is very exciting.

Well I can see I have a lot to do…so I will leave it at that today!

Here’s to you having a fantastic day rest of the day… It’s Sunday here in New Zealand but I wanted to post at least something today.

I’ll see you tomorrow as...

Tomorrow we’ll be on Day 23 of Learn how to build a website yourself in WordPress in 2017 where we will carry on from where we left off today!

Thanks so much for coming along, and again, you’re most welcome to leave a comment or ask a question below if you wish to do so, thanks and …

Cheers,

Jacqueline

Hey there Allan,

Thanks for your hugely positive comment, I'm really fired up about this new project and the fact that I've finally found a product range that I can build an authority site around, is great!

Awesomely exciting, thanks again Allan,

Cheers,

Hey there Eric,

As you would have already the seen the training is all text, which is great.

There's certainly a lot there and at first glance it was a bit overwhelming. Now that I've had time to start creating a plan I'm feeling a lot more settled with the tasks.

I realized I've done them all before but not with such an intense concentration.

How are you finding the training...

Cheers,

Jacqueline

It's all text! I was surprised. I expected some video. I went one time through and downloaded the pdf. I will have to read it again, but this time slowly. Thanks Jacqueline for mentioning Jay's training.

Yeah I know,

I was a bit shocked when I seen the training myself, I also downloaded the pdf and am slowly working through it.

I'm trying to make sure I look at it a bit at a time so I don't get overwhelmed. I keep reminding myself that I've built a ton of websites before, but this one seems different.

I know with it being an Authority Site, I want to do everything once, do it as exact as possible and move onto the next task - BUT still enjoy every process.

Woohoo, let's do this thing Eric, cheers,

Jacqueline

Hey there Luba,

I know... I can't believe how time is just flying by, it's amazing.

I'm glad you're enjoying following through with the posts, AND, I've seen the work you've been doing Luba, so I truly believe you're already well and truly up there with some of the best. Keep it up my friend.

Hey there Michael,

What a lovely thing to say, thank you! I guess I'm just putting out there what I'm thinking. Sometimes it great to talk to someone else about what you're doing, it helps to solidify your thoughts and gives you a sense that you're on the right track.

I'm super lucky here as I've got several wonderful someones to talk to, thanks to all those that comment on my posts!

Cheers Michael,

Jacqueline
