Own Your Blog or Else! Easy WordPress Install

http://www.expertsmarketingcoach.com Watch this video tutorial and see how simple it is to get online with a blog today!

Create a blog using free software from wordpress.org and get tips on why, if you want to become a serious blogger, if you want to make money with your blog or, if you want to control your blog, then using free blogs such as blogger.com or wordpress.com is NOT an option … You must own your blog.

Here's why …if you use hosted solutions such as blogger.com or wordpress.com, they can delete your site without your permission and there is nothing you can do about it. Also, using hosted sites to host your blog means that you have limited opportunities of monetizing your blog because some of them don't allow you to make the most of advertising with say Google AdSense.

WordPress.com for example makes it very clear that it is against their terms of service to commercialize your WordPress.com hosted blog by hosting paid advertising and will result in your blog being deleted.

In fact, I've just been reading one forum where there is a reader called “Rainmaker” and he seems to have made it his job to report people who are commercializing their WordPress blogs and within no time, their sites have been deleted by WordPress. So don't say you haven't been warned.

What you need to do is go to WordPress.org and download their free software and then upload the software to the server where you have your own hosting account, using your own domain name. Alternatively, you can use the automated feature found in many control panel web hosts – fantastico.

So, whilst WordPress is the software I recommend for your blogs, you should not confuse this with their hosted solutions where you simply log into their control panel, create a user name and password and suddenly, you have a blog that in my view, you don't own.

The software that you download from WordPress.org is quite simply powerful and, once I show you how, you'll realize it's also easy to use and in my opinion is unparalleled in the blog software world. WordPress is not only my software of choice it is used my many of the top Internet Marketers because it's simple enough for the newbie to use, yet sophisticated enough for the pro blogger.

WordPress has a huge library of plugins that allows users to instantly add features, and functions to give it even more flexibility and, when you add up all these elements you end up with a program that is fully capable of creating highly attractive blogs that encourage people to visit the site and stay to read whatever is posted on it. If you ever wanted powerful blog software that was able to give you the opportunity of creating a more unique look and feel, WordPress is it.

To get Get Started With A WordPress Blog and assuming you're going to go along with my recommendation of building a WordPress blog on your own hosting account, you'll need a domain name which you can get from godaddy.com and a hosting account which you can get from hostgator.com.

Blogging is a money making source of profit and blogs are straightforward to line up and maintain. Imagine a life where you are paid to pen on stuff that has interest for you, when you need, wherever you are.

The simple suppleness of blogging makes it simple for you to just kick back, relax and go on a holiday if you feel like it. In this piece, we're going to take a look at the profitability of a blog and set up a blog of our own at no charge! Interested? Read on! First, we want to acquire a blog. There are a few options host a blog on your own domain or get a free blog. To start, let's chat about the free blogs.

You can get a free blog at www.blogger.com or the newer ( and better ) www.wordpress.com. If you're a techie, you've got to have heard about WordPress, a free blog engine that's tough and infinitely expandable. Blogger.com is basically owned by Google, so it is going to be noted on Google's radar quicker and you'll be indexed quicker. WordPress.com nonetheless, is a comparatively new option so I haven't any comparison on the velocity of getting indexed by search websites. But WordPress is better in that it has more advanced features like Track backs and Categories. You may manage your sidebar links better ( more about this later ). Get a free blog at either Blogger.com ( http://www.blogger.com / signup.g ) or WordPress ( http://wordpress.com / signup / ).

Then, become familiar by posting your first post on your blog and tinkering around with the options and templates. Here are one or two common blog-related words to help out :

One ) Permalink

Permalink stands for permanent link, which is a URL ( uniform resource locator ) that leads to an individual post that you make in your blog.

Two ) Trackback

When you post about somebody else's blog post some place else, your post will show up in their trackback section. This feature nonetheless, isn't available with a Blogger.com account.

Three ) Pinging

Blogging looks to be coupled with pinging nearly each time either one is discussed these days. Pinging is really the action where a certain aggregator is told whenever your blog is updated, so the aggregator may show the most recent post of your blog on their internet site. This is a helpful way to gaining traffic, which we shall debate later on. For the moment, I shall leave you checking out your new blog and the features that come included with it. In the following articles, we shall talk about the some ways we will gain profit from a blog alongside pointers on the best way to write posts that keep visitors fixed and keep coming back for more!
