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, yes you can however the learning curve would you steeper as communications would cease up, however it is possible. It can take 3 - 6 months to see any income. This is a long term commitment and takes months of consistent work

However you could remain a starter indefinitely and your siterubix subdomain remains valid for six months.

Actually I have too niches am basing on and this too niche is my favorite one is hanging out book camping niche and the other one is health and fitness product, so I really don't know the right one to go for at this moment am kind of confused so I really need a good feed back with this,

Hi,

Which of the two, you are passionate about more and can write lots of content. Healthy and Fitness product is something you would promote vs Health and fitness, however too broad and need narrowing down.

What type of fitness, to what group, what will you be writing about, what issues will you be discussing? Tips, training, frequency etc

Again the camping part is same why type where and to whom. who's going to benefit most from what you have to offer. Who's your target audience?

However it has got to be a niche a website, but would advice going with the one site for starters.

Thanks I really appreciate your concept on my answer but like your word am going to focus on the one I can right about and get a tagetable audience for the sales

Hello! Ok I surrender! Can I delete my website and start over?! I was getting along fairly well till I got to the Seo plugin, and then somehow I got off course.😪. So I guess I need to just start over. (Actually I need a niche). Ty anyone got a suggestion?

Peace, Larry.

Hope you figured out your AIOSEO plugin issue.

As for niche ideas. I am attaching a blog that may give you some ideas. If you are referring to your xxx.siterubix.com site YES you can delete it and start over.

Thank you for responding. Sounds like solid advice and now that I’ve stepped away for a few minutes I seem to have recovered some clarity. I don’t believe I have done anything that can’t be fixed. So I’m h he ping to review the last three videos and see if I missed something.
Thank again I do so appreciate your input. If you don’t mind I would like to follow you.
Respectfully,
Larry.

Hi , thank you for the response and the links I’m pretty sure that niche thing worked itself out!! We will see. I will for sure check those links out.

I’m still knocking around seo trying to figure out why there’s something sandwiched in my title that I thought I had deleted. Also trying to figure out where the two h2 tags are.... grrrr. Anyhow thank you so much!
Peace and prosperity

When you reference two H2 tags, do you ever use the Text tag in WordPress? It can look overwhelming at first but learning how to use that tab can save some time. You can put your own h2 tags in. Learning how is by looking at other H2 tags in the content body.

Did you delete all the prepopulated title page tag suggestions by AIOSEO? Is this causing the problem with your title?

If it's our own domain you will loose it, so perhaps you just need to adapt it a bit. If it's a siterubix then delete bit and start again

Hi
I have just finished watching the build a website video, which was really good. There is so much information on how to build your site that i am worried i will not remember what to do when it actually comes to starting, should this be a concern for me?
kind regards

It is good to complete each task for each lesson. They are meant to pilot you through various stages in running a website and to make you put into practice what you learned in a lesson as you move to another one. They ensure that you grow or advance as you follow one lesson to another as design by Wealthy Affiliates. I don't know if I answered you question?

Yes I believe in the team that's why not having enough money to survive for the rest of the month I max out my account in order to finish level 1 and grow in knowledge and statue in this program. I never have had success online with various other companies before but I believe that this is the season with this team. As such, you have my commitment to allow this team to prove yourself to me. I'm currently doing a 9-5 as a teacher and 8 additional hours with this team. Everyday now since I have started to work on my courses.

After finishing level 1 I still believe that I would need more help to do 3 more websites so that I can get the hang of it. After transferring to my domain my privacy policy is missing and I don't know how to sort this out.

May I suggest starting off with the one site in the beginning as it takes a lot of work and effort to set up correctly. Once you know better the process, by all means you may have a second, third site .
Have you added your privacy policy page to your menu. You can do that in Appearance > Menus.

Also worth empty browsers cache, refresh and try again. Try URL in a different browser or a mobile device.

Kindly let us know how you get on.
