DIY Do It Yourself WordPress Websites

This post is designed as a step by step informative DIY (do it yourself) resource to help you buy, host, create, maintain, backup and generally get the most out of your website using WordPress as a platform.
 
STEP 1: BUY YOUR DOMAIN
Get your domain at GoDaddy.com – but just say NO THANKS to all the other products they offer during the signup process.

CONTENT IS KING (Yes, It Still Is)

At the end of the day, search engines like Google, Bing, Yahoo, et al are 100% aware that they are only going to survive IF SEARCHERS FIND WHAT THEY ARE LOOKING FOR. It would be great to have a nickel for every customer who wanted to “add some keywords to the code to show up at the top of Google,” but sadly, it doesn’t work that way.

It’s necessary to respect Google’s intelligence (and the others too of course, but WOW, Google is so intelligent!).

MOBILE FRIENDLY: netgenus.com Welcomes iPhones, Androids, & All Their Little Friends!

Check out this site on your iPhone – come on, whip it out!

What you will see on your mobile device is a completely different view from what you are seeing if you are on a regular computer right now, because netgenus.com is a WordPress website which is running an awesome premium plugin called WP Touch.

This is just one more reason to have a WORDPRESS website. WP touch uses the standard WordPress post & page structure to automatically re-theme the whole website for those teeny little screens.

On the left is what you see from your handheld when you type www.netgenus.com into the wee browser. Actually, if you are on a mobile device, the images is on the top 😉

We think you’ll agree […]
