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 The SEO Framework, 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.

Also, the Kraken Image Optimization plugin is preinstalled with all websites here. This helps 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 speed, a better user experience, and better rankings in Google (and other search engines). 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!

Hey, I just finished setting up my website with SEO. I followed instructions and clicked on the pipe bar to separate my title from the little catch phrase. But after pushing save settings there still was no pipe bar separating the two. Just wanted to know if I was suppose to actually see the pipe bar after clicking on save settings?

Thanks

I am building a website on the free domain, and I am using one of the premium access website themes. If I decide to change themes, do I have to start over or is there a way to migrate all the information and settings from the first theme to a new one?

When changing a theme you do not have to start over. Your pages, posts, images all remain in tact You may have to make some website header modifications and maybe footer changes but those are minor.

When you wish to change a theme, why not do a google search
your theme name + demo to see what it does first before installing and activating it.

Actually using the free siterubix.com domain website is a smart way to go because you do not have to redo any work when you decide to buy a dot com. You can MOVE your siterubix.com website to your dot com with the push of a button. The advantage of using the free domain name is that if you change your mind you can simply delete it and start over. But when purchasing a dot com domain name it cannot be deleted. There are industry standards in place. Since the free domain siterubix.com is a subdomain of the domain name siterubix.com the subdomain can be deleted.

When you are ready to MOVE your free sitrubix.com website here is the link. Yu will find it in level 2 training lesson 2.

No you do not.

To change your theme, here is what to do.

You may go to Appearance > Themes and add new.

Input what you are looking for, install and activate.

Your content will be left intact, you may lose out on CSS styles and social media icons if that, however with a bit of tweaking and you are done.

We always recommend you leaving a back up theme, you may od with the Twenty TwentyTwo.

I hope this helps

Hi Lynn,

Can I ask you a question? How many people click on your website each day? Is it at least 100?

If you are getting traffic like that great. You should become a Clickbank member and promote products in your niche.

However, if you are not getting traffic, the chances are you will fail in promoting any product using Clickbank affiliate links because nobody will see them.

Does that make sense? Work your hardest to build traffic first. Then join affiliate programs in your niche to write reviews about them using affiliate links.

Does that make sense?

Cheers.

Edwin

You are just beginning. Do the training first and get content in your website related to your niche idea. Then sign up to clickbank. Acceptance is not a guaranteed thing. Read their terms and policies.

But first create your website so you are getting traffic to it. Then you can get acceptance. Owning a website is not just about selling products. It is about helping people.

Hi, I am new to this and I am not completely sure about my niche. I want to do something about computer parts. (Like just about gpus or cpus) But I don't know if that is too broad. I want it to help people who don't really understand the information that most websites give. And give them a way to know which one would be the best pick.

Great and as a niche is not a product vs a subject you would help people by giving them advice on an aspect, walk them through your journey and then promote products however relevant.

You ought to discuss an aspect of computers to a qualified group of people who would be your target audience.

Graphic cards for beginners or gamers as an example.

The more focused a niche website is starting out, the better chance it has to start having traction and traffic.

Please be aware you also need to create lots of content addressing issues related to your focused niche website.

Most important is to be passionate and genuinely interested in your niche

That is a great idea, about graphics cards for beginners/gamers. And I would teach them about what it does in a computer. And what it affect in games/daily activities on their computer, then show them graphics cards. And maybe talk about price vs efficiently?

I am not sure I understand your niche idea. It looks like you want to help people understand and find the best website, but in actuality. it is best to find a niche about a topic you can help others with.

Here may be some ideas to expand your thinking.
Do you have any hobbies? Sports? Problems you've solved? Problems you are looking to find solutions for? Products that are amazingly helpful? Something you talk a lot about? Something you wished you had learned earlier in life? Job skill?

You will be writing posts for people to read on your website - who would be the audience you wish to write for and help? You will be writing both informational posts and product reviews. What kind of questions would people be asking about your niche that you can help them with as well? Your informational posts are important to grow your traffic.

I wish to explain how graphics cards work and affect a person's computer. Like I want to explain, the information most people don't understand, as well as the price and efficiency of graphics card products. Which would let me write articles on information of graphics cards, let me do product reviews, and let people ask questions about the information I have provided

Okay that will work. Then you can expand your scope later if necessary.

Hello Kyle or anyone else willing to help. I am a recent new member of this program, and I plan on purchasing the premium program in a little while, after I explore some more around here and ensure that this is for me.
Before that, I just want to ask you for some insight into the niche I have chosen. Since I am training as a deck cadet on board a ship to become an officer, I was thinking of making marine equipment/accessories for pleasure boating my niche. Is this niche acceptable? Is it too broad, or should I narrow it down to things like marine radars, parts, GPS, etc.
Thank you in advance for your help, I hope to learn a lot from this program and further my progress with the help of you as well as the other members.

Nice niche idea here. So the way to get a better handle on how to proceed, pic a targeted audience you wish to help and determine how you wish to help them. A great way to get traffic is to think of niche related problems and questions people have. And then write content to help them. Answersocrates.com is a site you can get questions from. This will help you to see the types of inte4rets people And how you could narrow and focus your niche. A niche is much more that products. It is helping people solve their problems and recommending solutions which are many times products.

You will be writing posts for people to read on your website - who would be the audience you wish to write for and help? You will be writing both informational posts and product reviews. Your informational posts are important to grow your traffic.

A niche should be for a targeted group of people How to narrow a niche down How To Expand Your niche later We wish you well.

My personal opinion would be marine equipment would be a good niche. All of the other narrowed down niches you mentioned could be good posts for your website. You can as direct as you want. You will learn this through training. Don't ever be afraid to ask questions. The Wealthy Affiliate family is here to help.

Welcome Kober to WA ye I believe you are on the right track, you do what your expertise is. It's your knowledge, your talent, your experience that will help you with building up your content.
In otherwords, you will need to provide your public with eye catching interesting, information on you choice of niche.
You can have your own take on this, like a personal account on 'how to' and 'what to do' to become an officer. Explore this by taking relevant photos your own images, videos etc.
Easy, hey you can ride the waves so to speak!
By following training if you decide to go premium it will be come more clearer.
You can have sections, within sections. As an affiliate you can promote anything to do with your subject, when you choose the appropriate programs that tie in with your niche.
That's my take on this, plan how and what you want your website to be. Checkout similar websites and see what the competition is like, then you can do your spin on it.
Hope that helps a bit.
Sounds great though, good luck with it all and enjoy the process! 👍 😀
