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!

We have several interest that we want to pursue, Is it okay to have so many niches to start with or is it better to focus on one or two?

It is best to start just with one, you can keep the other one for later.

Hi - you should only have one niche on a website, otherwise, Google won't see you as an authority on your subject. And your visitors won't understand what your website is about.

If I visit your site to read about home security, I don't want to see articles about musical instruments.

Sorry, I have more questions to ask:
- I choose a headscarves niche, can I change it to scarfes or it will be too broad?
- if the answer yes for question N1 then can I change the website name/domain name?

Thank you so much for your opinion/advice.

Hi, in the beginning you would want concentrate on a sub category niche. Once site starts gaining traction, traffic and authority you can then scale. However yes you can call then scarfs

See example below

. If siterubix subdomain, and URL needing change, you can delete and start again, however I'd save any work I created in site content. If a dot com URL and I made a mistake I would then need purchase a new domain.

It editing title, then settings > general edit and save changes.

I think the more specific the niche the better. This is especially helpful when you are first starting out. As time goes along and you see more success, then you can venture out and expand your site's horizons.

You could change the name, I think. Also, you could consider doing headscarves that are of esteemed brand and serve immense value to your customers.

I hope this helps. I am happy to help anytime.

Headscarves isn't to general.. although it might not bring in much per sale.

And your web domain can't change if you bought a domain.

Domain did not buy yet. Maybe I should re-think about my niche considering above comment as it might not bring in much per sale.

I am leaning heavily towards the niche of fitness treadmills and I wanted to know what the others thought. The reason I ask is because good quality treadmills are heavy, take up around a third of the bedroom (although you can lift it up) and cost at least 1 - 4 thousand dollars. Not to mention that more people are returning to the gyms. The only reason I can see bypassing the gym is the fear of covid with everyone breathing out heavy.

Are there any fold up machines that would work for your audience you want to reach? You can use Jaaxy, the keyword too to see what the search levels are. But the Jaaxy training doesn't come until lesson 9 You will need to define your audience. You is it that you want to share fitness treadmills because that is a product. How do you want to help a group of people that would use a treadmill. What is the objective?

Here's an idea of how to narrow a niche down and come up with a group you want to help.

GlennRivera Premium
I've thought of that and already come up with those objectives even before I joined. My only concern is most treadmills are big and heavy. but many of the manufacturers have made them to fold up.

I just want to know what people think of it as a niche and if it will work

i think treadmills could be an excellent niche . If that's something you're passionate about. you say "good " treadmills but if your niche is treadmills you will be writing about all treadmills. some big some small some cheap some expensive. i think if you do some research you'll find a lot to write about. it sounds like you're looking ahead to the money making aspect of this. If you follow the training and write about your niche i believe the money making aspect will work itself out when you get there. Best of luck to you

jghwebbrand Premium
Yes it will work . So your niche is your objectives and who you want to help. And your product is tread mills. So do you have a specific audience in mind you want to help? When you get lesson eight see what Jaaxy gives you for keywords. That will give you an insight as to your opportunity..

Thank you Rickmooney.

You know how I know so much about treadmills? Because I tried them all out at whatever public gyms I go to. That way, I can compare one with another and of course, I own my own so believe it or not, I have a lot to say about treadmills on my blogs/ads, rather than just putting out a bunch of boring specs

Right now, I am at the beginner level trying to figure a name for my website. I dont want to rush this because then, I'll have to live with it. Although setting up the website is quick process, finding a suitable name for it could take some time. Hopefully, something will come to me.

The other problem for me is trying to choose the right theme for it.

Thanks for your input!

Thank you. Yes, I am looking for people like myself who are not interested in the glory of running marathons. That is unhealthy but, TRAINING for marathons is good for you so I am looking for those who are looking for those people who are generally looking to get into proper condition, whether it be to prevent weight related diseases or just to improve their appearance. Believe me, running, combined with some toning exercises, works

Thanks. I am watching the video on setting the website. There are some features I see that have been added in so I might have to slow down a bit in order to better understand what they are there for.

I was wondering; since we are all part of a forum, do we get to check out one another's website progress or is that not allowed?

You might want to check for names using namemesh.com Especially look in the SEO column for some ideas.

Things to consider when choosing a niche.
All are pretty much responsive. but not all have the same easy feature modification capability. Having a footer with multiple columns is very handy. So some themes offer a very at the top menu and a header menu. We like the free theme Astra because it is rated highly with GeneratePress in speed. You a reprobably aware that you can go to the theme developers website and see a demo of most themes.

You can only check out someone else's website if they provide you with their URL There is no central place to find everyone's website and check them out.

Hi Mates:
I am looking for the 5 kW that meet the defined criteria of 30 searches and less than 100 competing sites.
I don't find so easily phrases that meet the criteria in my niche. So I have selected phrases with similar criteria, i.e. with less visitors and somewhat more competing sites. What is your opinion?
Thanks
Hector
