At this stage of the course you should have your website created! Congratulations, this is a big accomplishment!

Looking back to 2002 when I started my career in Online Business it took me 30 days just to figure out how to build a website. There definitely weren't any platforms like the Website platform you have access to here. What takes 30 seconds now, took 30 days back then.

How things have changed!

In this lesson we are going to be walking you through the process of the initial website set-up. This includes the removal of "default" content that is installed with every website as well as a look around of the back office of your website.

Additionally, I am also going to be walking you through the activation of your "Plugins" and be walking you through the benefits of the plugins (feature extensions) that have been installed automatically with your website.

Below is a video walk-through showing you the process of setting up your website. Click play to watch the "Setting Up Your Niche Website - The Initial Steps" video below.

 

Task 1: Login Into Your Website Back Office

In order to do this, you need to log into your website. This is very easy to do and can be done using the "Log In!" button (as shown below).

This will automatically show you all your users you have associated with your website and from there you can log into your website.

No more need for manual logins and the passwords within your account are encrypted and secured using SiteRubix technology!

You can also find your website login details, username, and password within the Details link on your SiteManager dashboard.

Task 2: Activate and Update Your Plugins

After you login, you will see your Wordpress administration dashboard for your website (see below).

This may look completely foreign to you if you have never logged into a WordPress website before, but don't worry, you will get the hang of this and there is a ton of help here within the community to work you through any questions/issues you may run into.

Wordpress is the most powerful and widely used website platform in the world. It is used by over 30% of ALL websites (millions) and it also has a wide range of "add ons" known as plugins that you can use extend the functionality of your website.

When you install website here at WA we pre-install three of the most useful plugins with your website automatically and your first step is going to be activating these plugins.

You will see the All in One SEO plugin, which we will be setting up in the next lesson. This is a plugin that is going to help you get found and ranked by search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo.

You will also see the Classic Editor plugin, which is already activated. This gives you access to the classic editor when you upgrade and create posts within your back office, which is preferrable (in particular when getting started) to the new and more modular editor. It is going to make your life a lot easier and it is already set up for you so you have to do nothing from you end.

Lastly, the Kraken Image Optimization plugin is going to compress and optimize all of the images on your website automatically. This is really sophisticated and advanced platform that is going to lead to better website speeds, a better user experience, and better search engine rankings. This is already set-up optimally for you.

Task 3: Delete Default Posts, Pages and Comments

Every new Wordpress website that you install will come with "default" or dummy content that is added with every website install. You want to get rid of this content before you can start creating content that is relevant to your niche.

The first thing you want to do is delete the default post that is added with each website.

Click on the Posts button, within the side menu.

This will take you to the posts page where you will go to see a list of all the posts on your website. A post is simply a content page on your site (we will be explaining them in more detail later).



Simply "mouse over" the post area and it will reveal the post management buttons. You will want to then click the "Trash" button. This will delete the default "Hello World!" post.

Do the same with the "Pages" link as well. There may be a few different Pages, including the Privacy Policy page. You can delete all of these pages as we are going to be starting fresh with our own content and starting the build out process of this in upcoming lessons.

**Do note that there may not be both default Pages and Posts. If that is the case, just move on.

That is it for this lesson, nice work! You now have a live website that is set-up and ready to go. This is your own Internet "real estate". You will use this website to connect with your niche and ultimately earn revenue through. This website is your foundation for building a successful online business!

The next lesson we are going to be showing you how to get your website ready to rank in Google and other search engines!

Hi, I have found my first niche which is going to be skincare for acne and dark spots if that is okay? or would I have to pick either just acne or dark spots? Also if I was to make a website to do with just skincare in general would I be able to make several pages within the same website dedicated to different areas in skincare or is it best to have a one website per niche so have different websites for sensitive skin and another for acne?

I like the idea of skin care products for acne and dark spots as a niche.

jghwebbrand Premium
Skin care for acne could be targeted to a specific group of people for example skin care for teenage acne. This would narrow your competition a lot.

The key to getting started fast is to narrow your niche down to a specific topic. This way, you will eliminate a lot of competition and get results much faster.

Niche examples
Camping essentials for beginners as a niche subject Computer essentials for beginners. Strength training for women over 40. I help women over 50 lose weight with yoga, help new Moms find the most important baby gear to cope with their first year as a parent

Once your site gets established with traffic then you could expand it to include all age groups. And you can include other skin care as well without needing to create a new website.

Some sites created by WA people have more than 400 posts. You can do the same with skin care.

Kyle mentions in the training about an initial site on golf balls now that site covers shoes too and more
How To Expand Your niche later To find out questions people are asking about your niche you can use the following.

What a great niche idea! Here's to your success.

Hi

ONE niche, a website. Products and programs can be varied however all must be relevant to the niche.

However you can start with one subcategory and after completely exhausting it you may start with another subcategory. Otherwise you will find it very hard to get noticed by the search engines and to compete with big authority sites.

You know what? I am just going to say here; keep your Niche as broad as possible; first; I have run into Members who say they run out of topics to post about. So, there is that. Next you will have a bigger audience; and be able to make more money.

Not only all that; but you will be able to help more Potential Customers. So, yes I suggest you keep your Niche Broad.

Hope this helps and encourages?

Did you clear your browser? Or try another browser to see if the same problem exists?

When you click on your profile image -> account settings -> subscription is your expiry date in the future.

I am just going to say here; this is a bit out of left field. But, you might try updating whatever you can if you want to? Just try updating? And see what happens? Update whatever you can update.

Hope this helps and encourages? And if this is not enough? Sorry couldn't help more.

Other Members please correct if wrong? But, from what I understand just recently. This situation Merits this. If I am wrong? Please correct?

Try Site Support and Live Chat. Just click on Help in the top menu; and ask them; if you want to? You can try both if you want to?

Other Members please correct if wrong for posting this? But, I just learned; in hosting situations. This is okay to post.

Hope this helps and encourages?

Ok, Derral here , I have a question about the privacy policy and the affiliate disclosure. Somehow as I was typing my about me widget I was not in the correct block and as I was typing my about me post went in four different directions. Now I no longer have an privacy policy or an affiliate disclosure for my website. HELP......
Can anyone explain to me how that happened, and how I can fix it?

If you can't fin your about me, affiliate disclosure and primary policy in WP back office -> posts -> all or pages -> all, you can always go to websites -> site content and find the template for content.
