Every week, we are committed to serve highly useful and important tips about web development and and graphic for every hardwarezone forumers! We strongly feel that designing is an exclusive art and its part of our social responsibility to share it to everybody; to create a strong awareness about it.

Basically, Wordpress is one of the free and popular CMS tools which are available to design your website. Therefore, this week’s part 3 of the tutorial will be for the Wordpress newbies on the various optimizations which you can consider to make your new website profitable:

5. Change Your Permalink Structure

By default, WordPress has a long undesirable permalink structure. Out of the box, any page or post that you publish will have a URL that works well for computers but poorly for humans and search engines (.....yourwebsite.com/?p=123]). Compare that to a URL which contains a proper title and appropriate keywords and it’s easy to see why you need to change your permalink structure.

In most cases, the “Post name” structure (...http...yourwebsite.com/sample-post/) is the best choice unless of course you’ll be posting similar titles that are date or time sensitive. Using this structure will make it easier for the reader to see what a post or page is about before they arrive at your site. It also makes it easier for search engines to analyze and rank your content.

6. Delete the Default Content

There are a few pieces of dummy content installed with WordPress that you’ll want to delete. Some hosting companies that use auto-installers also provide additional content above and beyond what comes with WordPress. Make sure you check pages, posts, comments, and widgets for anything not related to your business.

7. Fill Out Your User Profile

Take two minutes to fill out your profile page. It contains several fields that should be filled out including your name, social profile and contact information. There is also a drop-down field that allows you to change your publicly displayed name. Set it to either your first name, last name, nickname or any combination of the two. The only thing you want to avoid using is your username which represents 50% of you required login details.

8. Set-up Your Gravatar

Gravatar stands for globally recognized avatar and is a convenient way to make your profile portable across the web. Any time you comment on another website using your Gravatar email address, you’ll automatically leave your standardized profile behind that includes a photo, links to your website and links to your social profile.

Signing up with Gravatar is also an easy way to ensure that your profile photo is displayed alongside all of the posts you publish on your blog.


OUR FEEDBACK:
So far, I’ve put the more mission critical tasks at Tutorial 1 and 2 which we discussed in previous weeks. If these tutorials doesn’t make sense to you, then don’t worry! By default, we explain these clearly to all our clients when they engage our services.

Every week, we are committed to serve highly useful and important tips about web development and and graphic designing for every hardwarezone forumers! We strongly feel that designing is an exclusive art and its part of our social responsibility to share it to everybody; to create a strong awareness about it.

This week’s tutorial is about WordPress which is a popular CMS option for most web developers:

1. Choose A WP Theme that Compliments Your Company Brand

WordPress (WP) can be a fabulous platform to design your next website, and success is largely determined by the theme that you choose for your layout.Whatever theme you decide to go with, make sure you take the time to do the research to find which one best meets your needs. You will not only need a theme with great features, but one that has rock-solid support and will be around for many years to come.

2. Consider How Your WP Site Looks on Mobile Version

Be certain you have a WordPress theme that looks good on smartphones. More people are viewing websites on mobile devices today versus desktops by more than 10%. Many free WordPress themes that are responsive have formatting issues in the mobile view. If your mobile view doesn’t look good, consider using a WordPress mobile plugin.

3. Understand the Basics of Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

Before you start your WordPress site, you need to understand the basics of on-page search engine optimization (SEO), usability, and links. If you don’t, then you’re going to have a major headache down the line. Each of these can be easily edited through WordPress, but you may also want to install the Yoast plugin to make the process a little more streamlined.

4. Regularly Backup Your Site

One of the most important steps with your website is having an effective backup. If you’re making changes to a live site, you can use a tool like UpdraftPlus to take a backup within your dashboard, and restore the changes in one click. I also recommend setting up BackWPup to take an off-site backup on a regular schedule. That way, if you ever lose access to your backend, you’ve got everything you need to restore your website.

Part 2 of this tutorial will be continued next week…

OUR FEEDBACK:
Wordpress is a commonly used CMS tool that rose to fame for its blogging capabilities. However, if you feel that wordpress is something you are not familiar with, then don’t worry! We are here to educate users on choosing appropriate tools for your website development.

This week’s tutorial is about WordPress which is a popular CMS option for most web developers:

5. Identify Your Target Market with entertaining plugins

Its adviseable to add polls and quizzes plugin to your website. It lets you create fun little quizzes that can pop up on your website. People love quizzes and polls and it’s a great way to let visitors interact with your website. This plugin also offers different options to receive Facebook Likes as well.

6. Always Stay on Top of Updates

You can tell when there are updates available from the icon at the top of your WordPress dashboard. Updates for plugins are released very regularly and are often specifically to patch new security vulnerabilities. Hackers usually target sites that haven’t been updated for long.

7. Know How Your Website is Performing

There are various kinds of pixels and tracking codes will let you collect data on how your website is performing. For example, conversion data, number of visitors, etc. To do this effectively, it’s smart to use a plugin like Tracking Code Manager. Rather than mucking about in multiple pages of code and risk messing something up, this plugin lets you add your code in one place, and it will populate to all your pages.

8. Avoid Using Fancy Image Displays

Please don’t use Image sliders/image carousels. You cannot count on users to click through the slides or be patient enough to wait for the carousel to run through all the slides. Additionally, these elements can slow page load times, which not only make for a poor user experience but also negatively impact conversions, lowers the average time on page, and tends to increase bounce rates.

However, if you absolutely cannot avoid using sliders/carousels, try to limit them to three slides as studies show user interaction severely drops off after this number

Part 3 of this tutorial will be continued next week…

OUR FEEDBACK:
The above pointers are the stepping stone towards the construction of a successful website. In a highly competitive internet world, its important that the above strategies are utilized to ensure you are competent.

Every week, we are committed to serve you with useful and important tips about web development and graphic for every HWZone forumers! We strongly feel that designing is an exclusive art and its part of our social responsibility to share it to everybody and create a strong awareness about it.

Basically, Wordpress is one of the free and popular CMS tool that started off as a blogging platform 14 years back but it has more functionalities. Therefore, this week’s tutorial will give you an insight about its features:

1. There’s no equally popular CMS.

WordPress is the most popular content management system on the Web and about 30% of all existing websites were built with its help. It is free, open source, intuitively understandable and there are thousands of WP eCommerce tutorials, so finding necessary information will be a child’s play.

2. There are hundreds of thousand themes for WordPress.

Since WP is an open source platform everyone can build a template for it. Just imagine how many themes were already created during last 14 years. Of course, only a part of them will fit for building an eCommerce website, but that will still be an enormously big number. You will have a really wide range to choose from.

3. There are a huge number of plugins for WordPress.

One of the reasons creating a website with WordPress is so convenient is the wide pool of different extensions that give you an opportunity to add almost any functionality possible. You just take any preferred template and add all the stuff you need via plugins.

4. Payments.

Really cool and pixel accurate themes are paid and there’s nothing you can do with it. Free templates are often nice too, but they have sufficiently reduced functionality and go without eye-catching stock photos you see in a demo. So, if you want a WordPress eCommerce website that will impress the visitor from the first sight you will have to pay for it.

5. Upgrade issues.

WordPress releases different upgrades frequently. Guys are trying their best to make your work with this CMS as smooth and easy as possible, but after some time it could piss you off. To make sure your eCommerce WordPress online store will work without any problems you will need to update all your functional and then customize if needed and that could take a lot of time.


OUR FEEDBACK:
Although Wordpress seems flawless, it does has compatibility problems. Sometimes things just don’t fit each other. It is true for humans and it is also true for WordPress templates and plugins. Some themes are not compatible with plugins which our you would like to install. Therefore, you will have to spend time looking for a fitting one. This is where we help our clients and provide our expertise in web and graphic designing.
