All people dream, but not equally.David Herbert Lawrence said in his Dream poet

Wake in the morning to find that it was vanity.

For they dream their dreams with open eyes.
And make them come true.
So, You have to try to make your dreams come ture.
Ok. Without further ado let’s begin-
How to Start Blogging with WordPress
Before starting a new blog you first need something like Domain, Hosting server, learn SEO, and any more.
What is The Domain Name?
A domain name is a name that carries an identity to your website.
Suppose you have a house. Usually, the house has a specific address. In the same way, You have specific name.
If you have a website, then the website has an address or name. And this specific address/name is called the domain name. This name must be unique. But there are many domain name category such .com , .net , .info .gov, .org , etc.
Without a domain name website isn’t possible. So you first buy a domain name to start blogging and then know about WordPress and how to do SEO.
What should keep in mind when choosing a domain:
- try to buy a domain that matches your keyword
- Select a .com domain.
- Avoid hyphens.
- Avoid numbers.
- Choose a short name.
- Make sure the spelling is correct.
- Choose names that are easy to pronounce.
- Choose a name that is not copyrighted.
- Avoid the Google penalty domain.
What is a Hosting Server?
Web hosting is mainly a service that allows organizations or individuals to post a website or webpage on the internet. In other words, Hosting is a store where all the necessary data and information on a website is collected.
Suppose, you want to make a house. The house will definitely need a place to do it. If you don’t have space, you can’t build a house, and if you don’t have a house, you can’t keep anything at home.
Similarly, web hosting is a place to keep the website.
For example, your name is Michael and you want to start a blog with WordPress. So, you made a decision to write about traveling .and, you have bought a domain name from Godday or Bluehost.
Suppose your domain name is “nicetravel.com”. Then you need to store this name in a house. Webhosting is a house where the domain can be kept. So, you can put your domain on any hosting.
What should keep in mind when buying web hosting:
- Buy hosting from an organization, not from individuals
- Make sure you have full access to cpanel
- Make sure you will be able to transfer your web hosting
What is SEO?
The full meaning of SEO is search engine optimization. This is a very important thing to succeed in blogging. Without SEO you can never get a lot of organic traffic to your website. If you don’t get traffic then you have no chance to make money with WordPress through Blogging. So, of course, you have to have an idea about SEO first.
Suppose, you have created a website. Now you have to upload content to your website. So, you have uploaded some articles. But you don’t get any benefit if people don’t come to your website.
SEO is a process by which you can get more and more visitors from Google.
obviously, you can get visitors from social media or any forum site but your content is not ranked by Google if you don’t optimize your website.
But if you did SEO it would be ranked very easily and a lot of people will see and read your article.
How does SEO work?
SEO is basically the act of letting Google know about your content.
Suppose, you told Google that your content is about a certain subject, and if someone types this KEYWORD and does a Google search then Google must show your content in the case of SEO. For this, you should be optimized well according to abide by the rules of Google algorithm.
The Google search engine will show your content on Google if you really optimize well.
So, You must complete the SEO course before planning to start blogging. This is very important. If you don’t know about SEO you must not succeed.
