Overview of the WordPress Dashboard

This video tutorial is a brief overview of the main features of WordPress. The two features that you will probably be using the most are Posts and Pages. These features are what you use to put content into your website. It is the content that Google finds and indexes into their database or filing cabinet. Google uses their algorithm to place your content into the section of their filing cabinet based on how the spiders interpret the information on your page. The higher quality your content is, the more likely it will come up in the organic searches. Search engine optimization definately plays a role and we cover this more in depth in other tutorials on our website. Pages are static. You would use pages to create your home page, about us or contact us page. There are no rules on how to do anything on the internet. So create your website how you think it should suit you.

A Post is used for regular updates. Posts are used for more dynamic content. In a sense this would be the blog functionality of the website since you can add updates. If you did your keyword research you should get organic search traffic for your efforts.

You can create categories in WordPress to organize your content. It makes things more organized and easier for your visitors to find what they are looking for. You can create as many categories as you like but I wouldn’t go to crazy.
