“How Do I Promote My Website | WordPress Made Easy” written by Mike Marko.
I hear this question all the time, “How do I promote my website?” I know we had the same question when we started our website, http://brenandmike.influxentrepreneur.info. Most people have no clue how to have their website found on search engines, never mind promote them.
When you finally understand how to promote a website, you’ll realize that it isn’t too difficult. It is just unfortunate that many just don’t even realize there are some fundamentals that you have to do in order to get traffic or visitors to your site.
How Do I Promote My Website – First Key Step
Before I tell a simple answer to “how do I promote my website”, we need to discuss your blog platform. The success of your blogging has a lot to do with the WordPress blogging platform you are using.
And I have boiled it down to two options for you.
Option 1 – The Techy Way
In this option you create your own WordPress website by visiting WordPress.org and downloading the latest version. But before you do this you have to get your own hosting, like HostGator.com. You can even use this coupon code for HostGator < PromoteMyWebsite > and get 25% off. Once you get the hosting setup you can then install WordPress by using this video: How to Install WordPress on Hostgator. After you have WordPress installed next you need to get a domain name for your website from GoDaddy.com. Then you need to make the DNS name server change for your domain by following this video.
You still have to take care of site updates and maintenance, but at least now you have things up and running and ready for you to customize. This is where things get complicated… you still have to select themes, get plugins added, etc.
Option 2 – WordPress Made Easy
This is the easy way to get your website up and running. You get $1,500 word of plugin options plus a powerful WordPress blog website that is designed to help you rank in Google. This same platform helped you find this article among thousands of similar articles. You don’t have to worry about hosting because it is done for you. You also don’t have to worry about installing WordPress because it is done for you. You don’t even need a personal domain name if you don’t want one (we chose not because it can be better not to with this platform).

With Things Setup – How Do I Promote My Website?
There are a few simple things you need to do in order to promote your website. This should be done as soon as possible after creating your website.
Step 1 – Setup with Google Webmaster Tools
Step 2 – Setup with Bing Webmaster Tools
I think you get the picture. You need to make sure you register webmaster tools for every search engine possible. There is still Ask, Yahoo, Msn, etc…. really there is a long list of sites to register with.
Make sure you get an account with Attracta.com, and setup your website.
Promote Your Blog Posts
You should be creating regular content for your website (I recommend daily if you can). But even if you create daily content, people may still not be finding your website. Therefore I create two articles discussing what to do after you publish your content.
