In this post, I am going to tell you how to publish a website in the simplest way possible. This is the easiest method that I have come across so far on how to publish a website on WordPress without needing your own hosting account.
What Is WordPress
For those of you who don’t know what WordPress is, it is the biggest and best blogging platform in the world. Most people who want to start a website or blog that they want to make money with in the long run will be using or are using this platform as it is versatile and has the most features and plugins available, so your website will never be lacking for anything.
Even personal bloggers love this platform, as there are so many beautiful themes available and one can personalize your site in whatever way you see fit.
How To Publish A Website In 5 Minutes
If you want to jump right in and you know what you are going to call your website, you can click here.
Now I will run you through how to get started with your own website with the use of screenshots and pictures. If you don’t understand something, please feel free to ask questions in the comment section below.
When you see the screen above all you do is fill out the name of your website. As it is a free website, it will be hosted on Siterubix, until such time you want to purchase a .com domain name for it.
The name you type into the box will be checked to see if it is available, and if it is you will go through to the screen below when you click on ‘build my free website.’
Once you get to the screen above, you will click the button that says ‘on a free domain.’ The other options can only be used if you are an upgraded member of Wealthy Affiliate.
You will now see the screen below. Once again you enter the name of your website and the name you want to appear on your website where it says ‘enter a title for your website.’ This name can be changed later, but the domain name cannot. However, if you buy a domain name later you can use it for this website.
Now comes the best part of choosing your website design. You can scroll down and pick the one you think will best suit your website. There are thousands. If you change your mind later, you can always pick a new one without losing any of your website content.
That is the joy of publishing a website using WordPress, as you can change the entire look of your website by simply changing the theme and in a few seconds your website looks totally different, without having lost any of your content.
Once you have done this the screen below will show up.
If you are happy with the look of your site, simply press’ click here to build this site!’
You may also be asked to fill out your personal details so that Wealthy Affiliate knows who you are.
This screen will now show up. You now have a fully setup website ready to go and you can start adding content.
If you want to see what your website will look like to the rest of the world you can click on the website URL. Mine that I created for the sake of this post looks like this. It is all set up and just waiting for me to add content – a blank canvas waiting for my personal touch.
If you want to start working on your website you will want to click on the button that says ‘login now’ under admin details.
If you have never used WordPress before you will do well to click on the training button you will see on the left-hand side of your screen. There are ten free lessons here to get you started in the right direction as you start to build out your website.
And Now What?
Now that you know how to publish a website and how easy it actually is, it is time to put some content on your newly published site.
After this, all the content that you publish can be done as a post and this will follow on your website with the latest content added appearing at the top.
Make sure you are using your website to help others out with their problems, and not purely as a selling machine. Make your content interesting and engaging, otherwise, people won’t want to read it.
Make use of keyword research before you write each and every post so that you can get found by potential customers looking for information on the search engines, especially if you are looking at turning your website into a long term business.
The more content that you publish, the better your website will do and the more visitors you will get. Remember that Rome wasn’t built in a day, so don’t be discouraged if it takes six months for your visitors to start finding you. As you publish more content, the search engines will improve your rankings over time, allowing your first customers to find you.
What If I Want To Make Money?
There are many ways in which to monetize your website. The one I use most is Amazon, as they sell a whole range of products, in fact, everything under the sun. You are bound to find something to sell that your website focuses on.
You could also use adverts on your blogs, and publishers will pay you each time your blog gets visits or clicks on the ads.
There are many affiliate networks one could join, all it takes is a Google search. Within the Wealthy Affiliate platform, there are also lists of all the best programs that you can join and each time you sell a product you get paid a commission.
