Pages in the Menu

The top menu of your blog only displays the first 5 pages based on their order. However, the Right hand side menu displays all pages on your site that you have chosen to include in the menu.

When publishing a page you have the option to include the page in the menu. Not all pages that you add to your site will be placed in your menu. For example if you have a Pay-per-click campaign running with 50 different adgroups, you will have 50 different landing pages that are fine-tuned for each ad. You cannot have 50 pages in your menu. The same goes for Article marketing. You may have 50+ landing pages that you link to from your articles. What you want to do is choose a handful of pages that offer your visitors quality content without duplicating what you are delivering.

You may want to have the following pages in your menu (examples only):

  • Homepage
  • About Me
  • #1 recommendation
  • Frequently Asked Questions
  • Link to your Blog
  • Contact me

However, you may have pages that are created specifically as landing pages that focus on specific keywords
(examples only):

"how to make money online"
"how affiliate marketing works"
"best affiliate marketing training"

etc...

Pages that are fine-tuned as landing pages for ads or articles don't go in your menu.


Ordering Pages

As mentioned above, the first 5 pages in order are displayed in the top menu, while ALL pages that you include in the menu show up on the Right Hand Side menu:

The order of your pages is set by using a numerical value in the "Order" section of the Attributes. You will find the Attributes section on the page edit screen. It looks like this:

**The menu is displayed from lowest to highest.

Hey guys, am I right in thinking that you should have different pages, rather than posts, for different keywords within the same niche? Is that more effective for SEO purposes? Or will posts have a different URL when you click on them?

Thanks.

Different pages and/or posts with different keywords are great Nico. Both are good for SEO purposes and both rank.

Is it possible Tony, to only have pages i.e. structured like "Main Site Concept Keyword", then your main 10 to 20 pages, then from each of those pages you have long tail keywords stemming from each but all of these are pages?...

What if you don't have time to write daily blog posts or want to, and you just wish to create a static site with pages on a highly targeted solution?

Would something like that work?

Or is a blog really necessary?

There are no set rules Adam and I believe that the way you describe could very well work depending on so many other factors and variables.

Hi Carson,
I tried putting in a number to order the way things are showing up on my service website, but it doesn't seem to be working. I also went into the Menu...named the menu, and put my pages in the order I wanted...but no success when you pull up the website. Any suggestions?

Could be a theme issue, try changing the theme to see if that makes a difference.

Carson I see one of your pages is called blog. What would I put in here instead of putting in a post?
Reply
erolalici Premium
What you need to do is create a new page called "Blog. Then go to your dashboard and to Settings / reading.

There you see the option for static pages at the top. Then choose for your static blog page your newly created page "Blog" that you just made.

The "Blog" page will then show your blogposts.

Hi, wordpress can really act up at times! I have 2 suggestions:

Change themes to see if the pages link show up. Create your new page then switch back.

Logout as yourself and back in as administrator or viceversa

I think I have it now...Pages are more personal and Posts are more formal/product information content?
Reply
nathaniell Premium
pages are going to be for content that doesn't change..like some running themes or main ideas that will always remain the same for your site. Posts are going to be for everything else - the posts that you make on a daily or weekly basis.

If your site is about being a vegan, then you could have a page about tofu. But a post could be 5 benefits of steaming your tofu instead of frying it.

If your site was about cars, then you could have a page about Ford. But then you can have a post about how to fix the muffler on a 67 mustang.

my site is about weight loss-its get motivated lose weight. so far I have an about page (talking about what my site is about) and a life story page. I want to add a page called Proven Ways to Get Motivated and list 5 or 6 different ways to stay motivated and write a little but about each one. Would that be a Page or a Post? Also my website doesn't have a home or a blog page is that okay?

hi guys, sorry to sound thick, but why do we hide pages that have been ppc???

this is what above states:
Sometimes you will want to create pages that do not belong in the menu. For example, a page that you create specifically for a Pay-per-click ad, or Article. This page may not be one that you want people to be able to browse to.

Managing the Menu: I tried changing the number as described to order my pages. and it disappeared from the top bar and only showed up as a sub page when my cursor went over it.

Article Marketing. So you send a visitor to one of the hidden pages with a matching KW---just for article marketing. Do you then send them to the home page? I don't know how to make all those cool graphic that are on the pre made pages--
