How To Create New Posts

In this tutorial, I’m going to teach you the very basic thing you need to do with WordPress: Creating posts. You’ll also learn how to optimize your permalinks for search engine friendliness.

Now let’s get started!

Step 1

Log in to your WordPress dashboard.

post_1

After logging in, go to Posts >> Add New.

On this page, you will see the WordPress posts editor.

As you can see, it’s really easy to create a new post. All you need to do is to enter the title of your post on the Post Title field, and then add the actual content of your post.

Step 2

Once you’re done entering the content of your post, click on the Publish button. This will bring your post to your actual site.

Optimizing Your Permalink

In order to be consistent, make sure that your post title is similar to your permalink and that it contains the keyword that you want to rank on.

permalink

In this example, the title is “How to Effectively Use WordPress to Create Your Site”.

WordPress will automatically generate your permalink.

Depending on your website, say, if you want to rank on your local keyword, you need to make sure that your permalink is similar. Don’t forget to put dashes in between the words (i.e. how-to-use-wordpress-to-create-your-site)

Also, remember to put your keyword to your actual content.

Example:

In this article, I am going to talk about how you can effectively use WordPress to create your site.

content_1

Make sure that your related keywords are in your body, and that the keyword/key phrase is at the very end of the sentence, as well. You can also mix and match the words, as long as they make sense.

Example:

I hope you enjoyed learning how to effectively create your website by using WordPress.
