10 Things You Should Do After Installing Wordpress

Here are 10 Things You Should Do After Installing Wordpress

1. Buy and support developers by buying plugins and themes: Never pirate plugins and themes.

2. Optimize your site for search by using SEO plugins like All-in-One SEO Pack or Yoast's SEO Plugin. These plugins provide noob-friendly processes to optimize your website to search engines. If you want your website to be easily seen on search engines, optimizing every bits and pieces of your site's content should be "readable" and "friendly" to Google or Bing.

3. Use and verify your website on Google Webmaster.: If you're really serious to blog, you should be hungry be statistics and analytics. Google's Google Webmaster, is the penultimate online tool to monitor your site's performance in Google's search results. This is the online tool where you submit and monitor your site's sitemap. Of course, you don't want Google to miss your posts, right? Also, it is through this online tool where you can see the performance of search terms, which can be found on your website.

4. Track your website's traffic using Analytics: In connection to #4, your site's analytics and stats are keys to improving your site's content and searchability. Go to Google Analytics, create a website property, grab its tracking ID or tracking code and put it on your Wordpress site.

5. Put a password on your wp-admin folder: your website may be vulnerable to intrusions and malwares. Sometimes, the themes and plugins you download may be the root causes of your site's vulnerability. Other than keeping your Wordpress always up to date, it's a good practice to put a password on your wp-admin folder via CPanel.

6. Make your website responsive to different screens: You have to make sure that the theme you’re getting for your blog is responsive to different screens. Having a multiscreen user interface and experience will not just simply increase website engagement but it sends a message that you’re after your readers’ convenience.

7. Keep away from having too many advertisements: It is okay to publish ads, but you've got to put Aristotle's principle of moderation in effect: do things in moderation. Would you like to read an article filled with advertisements?

8. Delete the default Wordpress Admin account: If you don't do this, it'll be easier for brute-force hackers to get into the admin panel of your CMS. If this happens, consider your website 'hijacked'. Prevent this by doing the following:

- Login
- Create a new Administrator account with a different username
- Logout
- Login using new Administrator Account
- Delete the old one

9. Install these plugins:

Contact Form 7
Facebook (official plugin)
Page Views Count
Special Text Boxes
TablePress
Viper's Video Quicktags

10. Install these Firefox Addons to help you optimize the look of your website:

ColorZilla
MeasureIt
Firebug
Ghostery
SEOQuake SEO Extension

  • Hi everyone. I just would like to briefly introduce myself. I’m Giancarlo Viterbo. I’m currently the Digital Media Solutions Head for Pioneer Insurance. I also own a simple blog, Gadget Pilipinas. I’m a proud member of Cyberpress Philippines and Philippine Bloggers Network. My friends from PBNet are here. (Kindly show your hands please). I’m also a contributor for Tech View Asia.I am also a father of 2, husband of a beautiful princess and definitely not an ex boyfriend of Deniece Cornejo. Oh and by the way, I’ve been a Firefox user since 2007. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the people behind Mozilla for inviting me to share the things I’ve learned from the world of blogging.
  • Today, I’m going to talk aboutWordpress. I’ve got to tell you though. The things I will be sharing with you today are based on experience. I don’t want to bore you with too much technical topics, but rather, I’ll talk about practical and useful steps I’ve done after I installed my website.
  • Wordpress is a powerful open-source content management system. It allows its users to create and curate websites without having to go through the painful and rigorous process of creating one from scratch using plain html and css codes.
  • In fact, it is the most popular CMS in the world…
  • there are around 69 million Wordpress websites
  • and there are 100,000 new Wordpress sites are created every day.
  • Did you know that TechCruch, Gadget Pilipinas, CNN,  Smashing Magazine, TED and Forbes are using Wordpress?
  • Yeah! Wordpress is so famous, even famous and well-known celebrities use this platform for their website. Like 2 of my friends on this picture. It just so happened that one of them and his beautiful wife are actually here with us.
  • One of the many reasons why Wordpress is so popular is its plethora of paid or free plugins and themes. There are actually over 27,000 Wordpress plugins available. There's a plugin for renaming your uploaded photos to something similar to your blog title. There is also a plugin to help you install advertisements on your site. There are plenty of themes to choose from too! There are one-page parallax themes, ultra responsive themes, and even themes that can make your websites look like the old Mac operating system.
  • But you've got understand though that with great choices come great risk. Not all themes and plugins are free of malicious content or code, which may be used to hijack, deface or hack your website.
  • In my 4 years of using Wordpress, my website was defaced by hackers whose intentions are - surprisingly - noble: harden my website's security.
  • Other than hardening your site's security, you should note that Wordpress can also help you keep your website optimized for search. There are also plenty of themes that can make your site look great on all screen sizes!
  • Never pirate plugins and themes. There are tons of sites that can provide you free themes and plugins. But you've got to be keen on identifying which ones are reliable and problem-free. Before downloading, don't just look at user-ratings, pay more attention to frequency of updates and compatibility to latest Wordpress build or version.
  • Optimize your site for search by using SEO plugins like All-in-One SEO Pack or Yoast's SEO Plugin. It’s interesting to learn and understand Search Engine Optimization in the process using these plugins. These plugins provide noob-friendly processes to optimize your website to search engines. If you want your website to be easily seen on search engines, optimizing every bits and pieces of your site's content should be "readable" and "friendly" to Google or Bing.
  • If you're really serious to blog, you should be hungry be statistics and analytics. Google's Google Webmaster, is the penultimate online tool to monitor your site's performance in Google's search results. This is the online tool where you submit and monitor your site's sitemap. Of course, you don't want Google to miss your posts, right? Also, it is through this online tool where you can see the performance of search terms, which can be found on your website.As a blogger, you should be hungry with these things. You might find this eerie and complicated, but I am sure that you'll love it in no time.
  • In connection to #4, your site's analytics and stats are keys to improving your site's content and searchability. Go to Google Analytics, create a website property, grab its tracking ID or tracking code and put it on your Wordpress site.
  • Password protect your wp-admin folder.: Your website may be vulnerable to intrusions and malwares. Sometimes, the themes and plugins you download may be the root causes of your site's vulnerability. Other than keeping your Wordpress always up to date, it's a good practice to password protect your wp-admin folder via CPanel. This provides another layer of protection for intrusions.
  • You have to make sure that the theme you’re getting for your blog is responsive to different screens.
  • Having a multiscreen user interface and experience will not just simply increase website engagement but it sends a message that you’re after your readers’ convenience.
  • It is okay to publish ads, but you've got to put Aristotle's principle of moderation in effect: do things in moderation. Would you like to read an article filled with advertisements?
