Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Many people setting out in internet marketing have discovered that they need a website or blog on which to advertise their chosen products but the don't know how to set up a Wordpress blog. Panic not, it's really quite easy. I'm not going to cover the initial installation of Wordpress here because there's an article on my site already to which I'll give you a link later but I am going to tell you how to set up a Wordpress blog for best search engine optimisation and so that it's easy for you to use.

One of the problems with Wordpress is that it can be very slow to lead, particularly the admin area. As you'll spend quite a lot of time using this, you'll want it to load as quickly as possible and to do that, follow the steps below:

1. On the Dashboard page you'll see Screen Options at the top, click there and you'll see a number of options. You don't need most of them and they do slow down page loading so uncheck all but Right Now and Incoming Links.

2. Click on Plugins, Add New. In the field provided input "W3 Total Cache" and click the search button. Download the plugin and activate it. In the left hand menu at the bottom, click on Performance, General Settings and enable the following:

- Page Cache

- Minify

- Object Cache

- Browser Cache

Save your settings and your admin pages as well as your site pages should load quite quickly.

3. Return to Plugins and delete Hello Dolly. This is just a bit of fun but you don't need it and unused plugins can jam up the works. I always use the following plugins, so if you want to go back to Add New and download and install each of them:

- All in One SEO Pack - helps to improve your page rankings in the search engines.

- Dunstan-style Error Page - results in a neat 404 error page which tells your visitors a bit more than the page they want is missing.

- Easy AdSense - displays your AdSense wherever you want it on your site. The default is set that the author shares your revenue so don't forget to make ad space percentage as zero.

- Embed Iframe - you'll need this if you want to advertise Amazon products and certain others which use iframes.

- Google Analytics for WordPress - links to your Google AdSense account and collects site statistics with regard to your visitors.

- Google XML Sitemaps - this creates your sitemap and submits it to the search engines.

- Wordpress Database Backup - backs up your sql database at periods of your choice and either keeps the backup on your server or emails it to you. This is absolutely essential as you may otherwise risk losing your whole site if something goes wrong.

- WP-Optimize - optimises database tables as well as deleting spam comments and duplicate post.

In a nutshell, that's how to set up a Wordpress blog for best search engine optimisation.
