Browser-Friendly Way Of Creating A WordPress Website

Creating a WordPress website is relatively easy since the platforms provides you with all the necessary tools for development. However, creating a website which is as per the preferences of the web browsers, such as Google is crucial to ensure that it is able to rank higher once it goes live.

With that said, you can find many WordPress developer for hire who can assist you in not just coming up with an amazing website, but let you know of the ways by which you can create a site which most search engines want to see. Here is a brief review of how it is done :



  • After installing the WordPress CMS into your domain, connect it with your hosting service. Remember to note down the login details to the admin dashboard before logging in.
  • Next, go to the General Settings and delete the phrase ‘Just Another WordPress Blog’.
  • Go to the permalinks and type in the characters /%postname%. You can take assistance from WordPress web development services if you are not confident with this step. By doing this you will be able to make the post look like the this: domainname.com/topic-of-your-blog rather than the default which looks like: domainname.com/?=id=2345. This is also regarded as a spam link on different search engines such as Google.
  • Now, change the default un-categorized articles into various categories.
  • Convert the ‘Hello World’ into a short welcome note for the visitors in which you can add a message or a brief introduction in which you let your audience know what the post or blog is all about.
  • Change the sample page into About Us Page. Here, you can share your information such as your profession, your views on the topics you discuss in the blogs and the purpose of creating the website.
  • Now, you can add the plugins which you wish to feature on the dashboard of your WordPress website.
  • In the next step, it is recommended that you should activate the All-In-One SEO Pack plugin, which will allow you to create headings, brief descriptions and keywords as per the rankings.
  • If you wish to add a discussion room at the end of the blog, you can use a form building WordPress plugin such as Contact Form 7 which will allow you to create the box for the readers to type in their name, email and comments or quarries they wish to ask or discuss with the fellow readers or the author.
  • Next, add some caching plugins which will allow the website to load faster. You can pick from WP Super Cache, W3 Total Cache, Cache Enabler, Zen Cache and so on.
  • Once you have installed a plugin, the next step is to choose a template, which can be found in Themes under Appearances. Depending upon the features you wish to incorporate in your website such as image sliders, two or three columns display and so on, you can pick the one that best suits your purpose.
  • Now, go to the Widgets menu and delete the ones which you do not require. These widgets are displayed on the sidebar. You can choose the ones which will display banner codes, recent posts, most viewed posts and similar standard widgets.
  • Create the top and bottom menu which has the desired categories such as Home, About, Blog, Products, Reviews, Testimonials and Contact Us pages.
  • Once the initial setup is ready, you can simply go ahead with adding blogs, articles, new products as well as tweak the website on the go.
  • As you get familiar with the platform, you can add or drop the plugins to make website management easier.
