Oh, the mysteries of WordPress
How to do things on Word Press is always a challenge and as I venture more into it, it becomes harder to leave and re-learn new ways to beat the system.
The hard bits to solve
OK, there is just so much in this bucket that I don’t quite know where to start.
I guess in the beginning is good. You will know about domain names and hosting but what of security?
The first thing is to ensure your site has a SSL certificate or https:// address to keep up with the Internet. Support for HTTP will fade out quicker than a pair of old jeans so make sure your host supports this. Make sure it is FREE.
Next is to change your log-in name from Admin to something more secure. You will find this under users then under quick edit to make the changes and delete the Admin
These two items will help to protect your page from spammers.
Did you know that too many plugins affect your Google rankings, so keep them to a minimum?
Copy every post to Google plus to get more traction, Google controls the ranking so it stands to reason this will help.
Keywords. Don’t use too many. In the old days, they told you to stuff the article with words but that has changed
