Installing Plugins on our WordPress Blog

 

Now that you have your domain name picked out and hosting set up, it’s time to set up your WordPress blog.

 

The reason we are using WordPress is because it’s on your domain and your hosting account so now it belongs

to you. I also recommend that you purchase your domain from one company and your hosting from another.

You will be pretty safe if one of them would get shut down.

Ok,  so now you have a hosting company with a cpanel, so log in to your cpanel and look for a blue smiley face

(Fantastical), click on that icon and you are able to upload your WordPress with one click.

Now you name your blog, something that is relevant to the purpose of you blogging.

Installing plugins is next, by having plugins your blog will be much more efficient.

Just log in to your blog dashboard and click on plug in menu on the left side, drop down will open then you

click on add new, add name of the plugin and click install, once installed just click the link to activate it.

1. Google HML Sitemaps – helps Google to find your site

2. Post Plugin Library – this plug in is necessary if you want Popular Posts Plugin and Related Posts Plugins to work.

3. Askimet – spam blocker

4. CommentLuv – promotes commenting on your site, people that comment will get a link back to their latest blog post.

5. Google Analyticator – this plug in keeps track of your traffic and once you set up your account with Google Analytics

this plug in will activate automatically, no need to install codes.

6. Platinum SEO Pack – this will help you with the search engines, they will notice you fast.

7. Popular Posts – this puts a side bar widget on your blog that lists your most popular posts.

8. Sociable – this plugin puts icons at the bottom of your post so people can promote your site to their favorite Web 2.0 site.

9. WP To Twitter – this links your blog to Twitter, every time you make a post it sends a link to Twitter.

10. Yet Another Related Posts – it puts a list of related posts at the bottom of each individual post.

Once you install all the plugins you will want to make your blog look pretty, my next post will be on how to install themes

for your blog.

One tit bit for this blog post, I came across a cool site http://mylivesignature.com on that website you can create a

signature that looks like a handwritten signature. If you always wandered how they did that, well take a look

 at that site and get your own signature, and it’s free.

Be Sociable, Share!
