So how many of you have done what I realised I had done (well in fact not done) on almost all of my posts and pages…..beginners mistakes which can be fixed..
Well you take all the time to write a blog or produce a page for your website and you publish it… great news….. then you sit back and wonder after a few weeks why no one is commenting or even visiting your page…
This was me this morning folks… couldn’t understand it at all, that was until I was updating a recent post, going through all the checks, have I shared it? have done the slug? have I written an excerpt? have I allowed comments?
I have now spent three hours going through all my posts and pages correctly setting all of these.. now please understand I am a complete newbee at all this, I have a few questions..
so how long does it take before you actually get this process into your head?
and furthermore how does the slug work?
what is the purpose of the excerpt?
This all might sound very low impact, easy stuff to most but I think it is important to at least try and understand what does what and why…
comments please… I think I have allowed comments…. yes checked it….lol
