Just set up my own website - May 28th 2013, 05:53 PM

Hi guys, I've just set up a website for my food blog. So far, it's pretty basic, has an about me section and I've written a short blog. I'm using wordpress because I am useless with all the complicated stuff. Does anyone have any advice/tips on getting my blog out there and having people come read it? Also, I know that you can have advertisements on your website and earn money through that - how on earth do I do it? Dunno if I'm allowed to post my website here, but if anyone wants to see it, feel free to pm me.

oh, and how do i get it so that my page shows up on google? I've tried googling the actual website to see if it comes up, but I can't find it.

Hey, I think it's wonderful that you started a blog. I don't use wordpress, but maybe I can answer a couple of your questions. You could put your blog on some social media sites like Facebook and Twitter and you could share your blog with your friends and/or family members. Also, once you start posting in your blog, it will be picked up by search engines like google pretty soon.

I hope this helps.

Hey Ella

To post ads on your site to earn revenue, there are a plethora of ways it could be done. The way im familiar with is with google adsense (Click HERE to get more information/how to sign up).

Like Chloe has said continue to share your blog with your friends and family. When you have time I also would recommend googling "viral marketing strategies" and "search optimization" and using them to really get your site out there. The more out there your site the more and more it'll show up on searches through google, yahoo and etc!

Good Luck!

I'm quite experienced with WordPress, myself - so, any questions about specific things, please feel free to contact me.

Before I endeavour to give you any long, complicated answers about getting your site on Google, etc., are you using blogname.wordpress.com, or is it your own website name? (eg. mydomainname.com)
I ask simply because the WordPress.com is slightly modified by Automattic, so solutions would be different on that platform!

Skittlify me up...
