How To Select My Own Website
My Niche or Topic
The next step is to find your Niche. A topic you are going to write your blog posts or reviews about.
Every website has a topic and that is the Niche. Narrowing the topic down to a small section in a specific market is a must.
Find a way to serve the needs of what people are searching on the web. What do they have problems with?
This will be the appearance and framework of your website.
A theme organises the face of your site, it is called a template. Heading or the name of your site will be placed at the top. There is excellent training from Marion Black on many of these subjects.
The posts and all the advertisements with pictures and links have a specific space in the centre of the template with sidebars.
The picture shows examples of a few templates
Mobile Responsive Theme
More and more people are using their phones to do their surfing on the Net, and do the verbal asking technique.
You have to make sure that your theme has the setting and ability to accommodate Mobile viewers.
The downloading speed is very important.

You are the owner and can develop it, just like a real estate or property.
What is WordPress
WordPress is the writing pad from where you post your blogs and is free to use.

It exempts you from many technical processes and is done automatically via the design.
My ‘About’ Page
This page is used to tell your visitors a solution to a problem. How can they benefit from it and where to go from here.
Then tell them who you are and a bit about your background.
No need to tell all the detail, but a brief history with a little story is good.
The Contact Page
To make your website trustworthy and legitimate, it is a must to have a page where people can contact you via email if they need to.
Encourage people to talk about your site and information. Ask for comments on your articles.

This is necessary and an indemnity to safeguard everybody.
If you have a page where you collect the email of people you should tell them and promise not to misuse the information.
If you get a commission from goods sold on your page, your visitor should know.
This information is on pages and displayed normally in the footer bar of your site. It is out the way but there for anybody who wants to read it.
What is a Blog Post
A blog post is an interesting article you write, that appears on your Website as information on the topic of your niche.
This is contents, the owner wants the visitors to read, and is called a blog.
A post, a blog post or an article, all the same thing. It is recommended to have a new article every week, most importantly, to be consistent.

What is a Widget
A widget is a mini-program that runs in your mobile or computer.
Part of its function is to display some information and help with the execution thereof.
A Weather widget is an example, you normally install it on your website or phone and then activate it.
It will give you daily updates of raining possibilities, winds, temperature etc in your area.
When people read your blog until the end there is a button or an arrow to push, as a result, it will take you back to the top of the page.
This button takes you immediately to the top again, that is a widget you can install as well.
There are widgets, for example, is to enhance the speed of your site for mobile phones, set up the social links and more. In short, it enhances the usability of your website
WordPress has a whole library full, and you can access and install it from the back office of your website.
Wise not to go over board and download too many, for instance, it has an influence on the download speed of your site.
It normally is found on top of your page, just under the heading for instance.
Every website has a menu. When you click on a subject it will guide you to the page, telling your visitor what you have on offer.
It makes it easy to navigate and find articles they want to read under different subjects.
Scroll back to the top of this page and play around on the menu above. It will get clear how to navigate and find information.
This gets organised under Appearances in the side menu of the back office in WordPress.
The less complicated it is, the better it is to navigate your site. It is good to make use of drop-down menus under each section, to specify where to find what.
All in the training lessons of WA.
What is Internet Traffic
How To Design My Website
Internet traffic is the flow of information when searches are conducted. The more people to visit your site the higher you rank in Google. With the best quality information and trust you have build it with your viewers the more successful you will be.
From the websites to the searcher via search engines. Popular sites with good content get more traffic, are busier and as a result, makes more money.
When people visit your site they will want to comment on the content in your article or ask a question.
Therefore, you have to activate that section in WordPress. A box then appears at the bottom of your post for them to talk to you in writing.
It is just polite to reply to every comment you get.
