If you are a beginner at writing or a total newbie at Blogging, then you probably know this. You WILL NOT have much visitors for your website or your blog unless you focus on sharing! That’s a hard truth and it’s a phase everyone goes through at one point of time.
In this Beginner’s Guide, you will learn to set up your WordPress Blog so that you get more visitors! These settings are a must for every WordPress blogger, so please read through the entire article. 🙂
Publicize Settings – WordPress “sharing” option!
WordPress has in-built settings that lets you easily share or promote your blog content to other websites. Some of these websites include Facebook, Google Plus, Linked In, Pinterest, Tumbler. etc.
TIP: Tumbler is really useful if you have images/videos in your blog post!
Most of you would have an account in at least any one of the above listed social networking websites. All you have to do is to connect to those accounts!
What happens after I connect?
This is a question that we all had in the beginning, fearing that it might result sharing of our personal/private data and such. Nothing of that sort would happen when you connect your accounts through WordPress publicize settings. Moreover, it is purely your choice whether to connect to these services or not.
How to connect?
- Log in to your WordPress account
- Click on “My Sites” to see the site settings
- Under “Configure” menu on the left side-bar, select “Sharing” option
- Publicize settings would be displayed. Select the services you want and connect to those accounts
- DONE! Your blog is now setup and your articles would be automatically promoted to the accounts you linked
Once you connect to the services that you prefer, the next time you post anything new on your WordPress blog or a WordPress self-hosted site, that content would be automatically shared to the accounts you have connected in your Publicize Settings.
Means, your article would be visible to people outside of your WordPress “followers”. This feature surely would bring your more visitors and probably converted followers!
