If you’re using blogging as one of your strategies for your Network Marketing business, I recommend the use of WordPress.org as the platform for your blog. A blog is just another kind of website, except that it’s much easier to create and update than an ‘ordinary’ website. Creating a web page using WordPress is almost the same as writing an article in Word for Windows or another editing application. In this article, we describe five reasons why you should use WordPress.org for your blog.
Two main kinds of platforms for creating a blog are:
1) A “Server Side Web Based” application completely controlled by your Web host and by YOU. Examples of these are WordPress.ORG, MovableType, TypePad and others. It’s important to have this kind of blog if you’re doing business on the internet, because it will become your asset, and can’t be taken away from you. In contrast, the web based applications can be taken away from you with no warning, and you won’t ever get it back again.
2) A “Web based application” which is controlled by the web hosting community. Examples of these are Blogger, WordPress.COM, Wetpaint, Mindsay and numerous others.
Following are Five Good Reasons to Use WordPress.org
Reason Number 1: The Search Engines love WordPress blogs
With just a little knowledge about keywords and search engine optimization, it’s VERY easy to get listed on Google for your keywords.
The best way to have Google index (have it listed in Google) your new WordPress blog, is to submit your blog’s RSS feed to some search engines. Don’t worry about what an RSS feed is, if you don’t know. You don’t need to know what everything means, you just need to know what to do with it.
So, after you create your blog and your first blog post:
- Type in the URL of your blog in the Address Bar of your Web browser (preferably Firefox).
- Once your blog is displayed, look to the right of where your URL is typed and you should see a little orange box.
- Click on the orange box and your web browser should open up the RSS feed of your blog. The text displayed may look like gobbledegook, but don’t worry about that. The search engines can interpret what’s written for the RSS feed.
- Copy that RSS Feed URL and Paste it into Notepad or your favorite Text Editor.
- Now, go to Feedage.com and Submit your Blog’s RSS Feed URL you just copied into your Text Editor.
- Now go to Feedagg.com and Submit your Blog’s RSS Feed URL you just copied into your Text Editor.
