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!

I notice these two features on Site Content "SEO analysis and checks" and "Content structure analysis" I have used Site Content as least half a dozen times and I have never noticed these features in use..

So,are they no longer extant or did I miss them somehow. If they are longer available maybe they should be removed from the list of features that Site Content provides.

Thanks

Hiya..That was such a great response to @LCrombie. I've learnt it's best to have different websites for different niches. Assuming my niche is mobile accessories& I intend to start with marketing security cameras, should my domain be something like "securitycamera" or "mobile accesories", or "esiezafmobileaccessories."? Do I need to have my name in the domain or not necessarily?

Hi Esiezaf - Domain names are important for sure, but the days of having a domain name that exactly matches your niche are long gone. If you can get a domain name with your exact niche it can't hurt, but don't sweat it if you can't find it available. It it more important that you domain name is short if possible - under 15 characters is great. Another thing to think about is could you build a strong brand around the domain name. Unless you are planning to brand yourself, and make yourself the focus in your marketing, I wouldn't use your name in the domain name. I hope this helps. You are off to a great start.

Voilà, je viens de finir ma première leçon mais j'ai quelques inquiétudes.
En fait, je suis d'un pays francophone malheureusement le site et son contenu son anglais. N'y a-t-il pas des contenus en français car pour le site j'ai quand même pu configurer un traducteur sur mon navigateur ?
Par ailleurs, je viens déjà de créer un site web mais je ne sais comment le rendre présentable, il y a un cours pour cela pour devrais-je avoir accès à un quelconque outil dans le site?

Merci.

Malheureusement, tout est en anglais, donc vous devrez peut-être utiliser le traducteur que vous avez si vous voulez continuer

Huh..... What's going on here. I'm So Sorry, I only speak and understand English. Is this my phone that changed the language or is that what you guys are texting?? 😂

No the original message was in French. And I don't want to get into trouble. So, you might try a translator program to translate the original post. I sort of mentioned that in the post too. I hope I don't get into trouble for mentioning that?

Yea I can't understand a word of any of that. Why would you get in trouble? Is it something that I need to read? I mean like are they talking to me and if so is that something important?? Bc if not then I'm good and not worried about figuring it out. Unless it's something that could really help me. Then I guess I'll take the time out to try to figure out what their all saying. Just Saying Lol

Oh Ok, That's what is was wondering. It said Viola or something like that and that's why I thought they were trying to say something to me. Please just excuse me, I'm kind of ditsy or silly. I Don't really know how to say it.lol Well I'll just say I'll probably end up asking Alot of Dumb or Maybe even Questions with the Answer being Obvious throughout all these lessons. I swear it seems like I'm even getting more ditsy the older I get. Which is unfortunate for me..... But it's Hilarious To My Family. Just Saying. 😂🤷🤣

I am kinda confused about the keywords and writing articles.
when I pick up a phrase.

Does it have to be 100% accurate?
For example. if I fit in my title "Diapers FOR Babies"
it won't show in google if someone type "Diapers Babies"?

both words are inside of "Diapers for Babies".

B. about stuffing:

should I really be careful not to repeat any sentence or words that I write? aren't there some rules or something ? for example, Google will approve stuffing the same keyword up to 5 times?

I'd happy to have more clarification on that.

Thank you, good people

Good question Ido and a common one. When you choose your keywords to search, yes you want them to make sense. You'll get more accurate research results using 'diapers for babies' or best diapers for babies' instead of just diapers babies. For using the keywords in your article, you want to use it in your title, the first paragraph and maybe at the end of your article ie. in the conclusion or summary paragraph. Hope this answers your question and helps you.

Hello,
I'm stuck at Creating my Custom Menu
My page is bit different from Kyle's tutorial where I can only see Menu Name and below that (and add menu from the column on the left). I seem to be missing Home &
Privacy Policy.
When I check on left on Post, I have others and not the ones mentioned above.
For your information and help with thanks.

Yammey

try click on view all on the pages in the menu - it may show more pages you should be able to find your privacy policy - assuming you have created one....( posts or pages whichever you have created)
for the home - choose a custom menu item and add your url address and description of home.
good luck
phil
