How to Write Your First Post in WordPress

by Martin Malden

Writing pad and pencilThis video is for people new to WordPress and goes through the steps to write and publish your first post.

Writing and publishing pages is the same except for two things:

  1. You start on the ‘Add New Page’ screen (not the Add New Post screen)
  2. You don’t assign categories and tags

Once you’ve written your post you should assign some basic SEO tags to give it a nudge in the search results, and I go through these steps here.

If you have difficulty viewing the video try the full screen mode – this content column is a bit narrow for displaying videos!

Remember to view this video to see how to add some basic SEO tags to boost your post in the search results.

That’s it – if you have any questions leave me a comment or contact me here.
