First it’s Word Press and then it’s the World
This week I want to discuss and create (hopefully) a simplified discussion on using Word Press with your existing website or integrating Word Press as your content management system in a new website. It is by far one of the best blogging software on the internet, one being that it is self hosted blogging. Meaning that you use an independant web host to do your blogging. You can use your own custom domain such as www.domain.com instead of domain.blogspot.com on the blogger.com site.
Over the course of a few weeks, I want to cover the area of theming, where I will go through the steps of integrating Word Press into your current website. The theme of your blog will look and feel the same as the rest of the website making a seemingly smooth transition with the rest of your site.
The biggest advantage of Word Press is it extremely SEO Friendly. Search Engines love Word Press because of the self pinging mechanism. Every time a post is created or updated, Word Press sends a ping to many search engines causing a possible flurry of traffic to your site and even building a steady audience. The other huge advantage of Word Press (which I Love) is the plugins available. This is awesome! A user can customize a plugin according to there own requirements which makes Word Press one of the most popular blogging software on the planet.
My main topic here is theming and to integrate a Word Press template into your website. Stay Tuned!
