7 Essential Tips for WordPress Beginners | BUSINESS and more | Scoop.it

Whether you're new to WordPress or a seasoned pro, you need to make sure you're implementing these 7 techniques to get the results you want from your site. [note]


Raise your hand if this sounds familiar …


You meet someone and they say all the right things. They’re full of compliments and accolades.


Except, something bugs you about them. Their words don’t quite match their actions. They can be forgetful, and even mean. Eventually, the glow wears off, and you see them for who they really are.

And that’s how it is with your WordPress website, especially if you’re just getting started.

In case you hadn’t figured it out yet, FeedBurner has the capability to tweet out your new posts when they go live. The service is extremely simple to set up, and highly customizable.
