Search engines like Google, Bing & Yahoo are after ONE thing. The most relevant content.

If you can build out your website in a way that is ready for SEO (as discussed in the last lesson) and create quality, relevant content, you are going to have a bright journey ahead of you within the online world.

The thing that most people stress about is being a "writer", you DO NOT have to be a writer to be successful online.

You simply need to communicate with your audience, the same way that you would with a friend or a family member. And if you put the emphasis on helping people, you are going to be able to build trust, which is going to lead to long term and sustainable success online.

I have created a little walk-through video called "Creating Your Initial Website Content (Framework), showing you around the platform and how to best benefit from it. Watch the video below.

 

Task 1: Creating Your "About Me" POST

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 today is going to be to create your About Me page and you are going to be doing this directly within the SiteContent platform.

Within your Templates tab, you are going to see that you already have the framework for your About Me page already outlined.


Simply click on the About Me template and it will take you into the SiteContent editor. This is where you will be creating your content for your About Me page.

The first thing you are going to want to do is choose a title that is appropriate for your about me page. There are several options that I suggest you choose from in terms of your naming convention.

  • About Me
  • About NAME (ex. About Kyle)
  • About SITE (ex. About Real Deal Affiliate, About RDA)
  • About Us

The most natural and the option that I have always used because I feel it resonates and creates the most trust is "About Me" or "About Kyle", because it is the most direct. It feels like I am here for you and I am here to help (which is the case with every site I create).

Then you will want to populate the content. Do know that this is just a guideline, as you edit this post you can add new headings and of course you are in full control of the content and your story.

This is not a rigid exercise here, you are YOUR OWN brand and you can build out your content in any way you like, but this will give you a good guideline here.

After your are done doing this you will be click the Publish button in the right corner, just above your editor. This is going to allow you to publish directly to your website (see below).

Upon clicking Publish, you will get a pop-up that will allow you to choose how you want to publish the content. This is a 4 step process.

Step 1: You will want to choose your website that you want to Publish to, in this case it will be my "basketballskillsanddrills.siterubix.com" website.

Step 2: Choose "Post", not a "Page". The reason is all POSTS allow for comments on them and this is a page on my website where I am going to want to allow people to leave comments and feedback. Pretty much every article you publish moving forward will be done so as a "Post".

Step 3: Choose the user. If this is a new site, you will likely only have an Admin user. That is fine, choose that as your user.

Step 4: Choose the URL plug. Leave it "as is". You shouldn't need to change your URL plug, this is something that you can leave.

The Click Publish. Upon doing so, SiteContent is going to run a duplicate content check, and then publish the content to your website. Since you wrote your About Me page it will be 100% unique.

Task 2: 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 are going to want to load up the Privacy Policy Template from your templates.


Upon doing so, you will get a standardized Privacy Policy page. You are just going to need to make a few edits within the content to update this Privacy Policy and make it relevant to your website.

Change YOURDOMAIN.com => Your Website URL

In the case of my website, I changed it to basketballskillsanddrills.siterubix.com. There about 10-11 instances of this that you will need to update within the Privacy Policy.

Then you will want to change:

Change YOUREMAIL@YOUREMAIL.com => Your Email Address

This could be any email you want, you could even create a free gmail account for the purpose of this. Or if you don't feel comfortable leaving your email at the moment, this can be something that you provide to people at a later date.

Upon updating the YOURDOMAIN.com and YOUREMAIL@YOUREMAIL.com to your website details, you will want to Publish the Privacy Policy to your website.

Publish as a Page.

The reason you want to create this 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).

NOTE: If you do publish as a page and there are comments there, not to worry. That is just how your "theme" you chose was designed and it will not present any issues moving forward.

You are all set with your first few pages of content on your website. If you have any questions about the creation of your "about me" or "privacy policy" pages, leave them below.

Kudos to you for your hard work thus far, in the next lesson we are going to be covering navigation on your website and how to create custom menus. ;)

I am new here, and excited to be here. I learnt about this from my friend who is in Nigeria, That was in 2018. I tried to join the WA, at that time in Nigeria, but was told that I could not as it was not available in my country. I wanna know why this is the case. My friend who told me of this, was going to introduce me to MOBE, but because it was down at that time, and still is, he took my own offer, to join my network marketing company, where he is currently doing well. So my question is I wanna really know why this is not currently not allowed in that country, because I also intend to promote WA in Nigeria. I am currently studying at a University in Dominica, that's why I am able to join; as I said, I had earlier tried to sign in to WA while I was in Nigeria. I await answer on this, so that I know if I can promote this to my down-lines in Nigeria

Okay. Thank you. but is this available in other African countries besides Nigeria? I was also asking myself why is it not available there. Is it not time we also took this good news to them? Just thinking.. Because my three brothers in Nigeria will be so excited to be on this platform.

I wonder how I can set up my future page to be bi-lingual with the following requirements:
1.) SEO should be possible and not disturbed by different languages
2.) There will be a pattern like articles
a,b,c,d, f available in language a
a, c,d,e available in language b
( so no exact mirror imaging of every page)
3.) nevertheless I want an easy way to ideally copy paste a post, re-using structure and imagery and only replacing translated text.
4.) users might want to switch between languages, but they will mostly stay in one language setting right from the beginning ( but I might reference things like "Post about xyz, only available in the English version and link from German version to English version).

What do I need to consider / understand / take care right from the start so as not to feel sorry later, once a lot of content has already been created and structures might be more difficult to change?

I hope there's somebody out there who has already been running multi-lanugage wordpress pages and can give me direction.

I think most people will have their own browser translator, so I wouldn't focus too much on translating your website. Just my opinion though.

Hi .
As Diane says follow the training closely.
A little tip I used because my memory does not retain technical info. I opened 2 windows and as I watched and listened to the videos, I paused and then implemented the training straight away so as not to forget it. The other thing is if you try to do something and it doesn't work 1st time you don't have find the relative training.
Good luck

I have completed the 9 training modules and was reviewing my pages and menus when I decided to try a manual log-in. I typed my website URL 'name'; SafetyAtHome followed by .siterubix/wp-admin (SafetyAtHome.siterubix/wp-admin/) but I did not get in. Instead, I got some Google search results related to siterubix/wp-admin/. When I removed the /wp-admin component, hoping to hit my website I received an advisory that the site was not secure.
Any ideas?

I currently have "Home", "About Me", and "Privacy Policy" on my site and have published seven articles thus far that all show up under "Home". Is it a good idea to break these articles down into sub-menus under "Home", or maybe to add more menu items to the three that I currently have? If so, how do I go about doing this? Thanks in advance.

I recommend creating categories and then assigning posts to one or more categories. You can then place a categories menu with each submenu being a specific category.

I did this on my drone site: https://mavicmaniacs.com
