1. Installing theme:
Well, I recommend you to choose one premium theme before you start optimizing your blog. Choose highly SEO friendly theme & most importantly simple so that, your readers can get everything correctly. Premium themes are highly SEO optimized & works very good. It also gives you the attractive look, if you choose the best blogging platform why not theme?
Get high quality premium themes at low price from.If you do not have enough money to purchase theme you can use free WordPress themes also.
2. Essential set ups:
Add one new category and replace uncategorized to the new one. Dashboard<< settings<< Writing.
Updated service have only one ping url by default. Add following url replacing that http://rpc.pingomatic.com/http://ping.blogger.jp/rpc/http://bblog.com/ping.php. Dashboard<< settings<
Discussion area for enabling comment.
Create your blog site map.
3. Adding valuable pages.
This gives your readers a chance to know more about you, chance to get connected with you & advertise on you blog.
This is valuable thing which many newbie’s leave behind you.
Changing theme continuously is a very bad practice by many bloggers. If Facebook is changing their theme every month how will it be.
5. Email Subscription:
Add subscription option this is extremely helpful in pulling back the traffic & building loyal visitors. It is more helpful in making out some sale by recommending some services & products via mails.
