Tips And Tricks For Getting The Most From WordPress

Have you given Wordpress a try in the past, but wondered if there might be more to it than you realized? Perhaps you are interested in learning about new and exciting features that make Wordpress even more helpful to bloggers. If so, this article should prove extremely interesting and valuable.

If you plan to start a Wordpress blog, make sure that you offer readers more than just content. Even if you say many useful things, it may be quite difficult to engage readers with text. It would be a great idea to implement videos and pictures since this is a great attention grabber. Remember to make your sidebar as concise and clean as possible. You don't want it to be full of 100 links, ads and buttons. Instead, only put what is important in your sidebar and, if you need more links, put them into submenus which appear when the user mouses over your main menu.

TIP! Do not let your theme get stale. The first thing you should do if you notice a decrease in traffic is check and see when you last changed your theme.

Remember that the title and description of each page on your site is what many other sites will use to categorize your link and share it with the world. For example, it will be what Google shows when someone searches for a site such as your own. Fill them with SEO key phrases and make sure there are no typos. Allow all of the users that visit your site the ability to comment using Facebook. This is a very important tool that will get your name across to hundreds of thousands of people. The Simple Facebook Connect plugin can be used if you want to install this feature on your site.

TIP! Make sure that your content is free of fluff. This will help ensure that your site remains user-friendly.

Always upgrade WordPress as soon as possible. Hackers will target WordPress because of the large amount of users. Updating WordPress as soon as updates are available can be on of your most valuable security tasks. The longer you wait to update, the better opportunity for hackers to get into your business. Use your footers wisely. People often scroll to the bottom of a page to find out who runs the site, how to contact the owner or to see how fresh the content is based on a copyright date. You can even include a short biography or other information you feel is pertinent.

TIP! Encourage your users to share your site with their friends, family and loved ones on the top social media sites. Twitter and Facebook are the most optimal sites that come to mind, as this can get your name across to millions of different people.

Make sure that you learn all you are able about WordPress before even installing it. If you plan ahead, things will flow better once you get started. Learn about SEO, content creation, and how WordPress can best be used to your advantage. If you want to create a line break, but not a paragraph break, hold shift while you press the enter key. This moves the cursor down to the next line without including any blank space. If you want to put a letterhead-type address on your page, this should make it a snap.

TIP! Regularly check your site and content. All your plugins and everything else you work with needs to be current.

If you have always had a vague awareness of the value of Wordpress, but never really delved into the specifics, the above information was perfect for you. Now that you have read a bit more about what this tool can do for you, inspiration is sure to follow. Best wishes as you begin maximizing your use of Wordpress to astounding effect.
