How to create a WordPress website

The website you are seeing today was created on WordPress, most of the websites created online these are made on WordPress. With that said today I want to give you the information you will need to create a great website for any niche.

The first thing you will want to get is a domain name and web hosting. You can pick these up at Host Gator for pretty cheap. You can get started for around 10-20 dollars total. This will give you the tools used by most professional website creators today. Once you have a domain and your web hosting purchased, you need to install WordPress on your Host Gator account.

Once you have the WordPress dashboard pulled up you will want to clear out any post it comes with. You want to start with all unique content and keep posting regularly. Use good images that are either free to use or you own. You also want to add alternative text and other attributes to each image. This is done by clicking edit on the image.

Next, you will want to add the two most important plugins you will have, Yoast SEO and WP Super Cache. Yoast is a plugin that allows you to make SEO adjustments to each post, page, and category. WP Super Cache helps your page to load much faster. Both of these plugins greatly improve user experience and that’s what you want.
