5 Slip Ups of WordPress Setup

5 Slip Ups of WordPressYou must have set up your WordPress site with every efficient resource available online and offline. Now this article is going to tell what those 5 things were which you could have avoided to do. It is not to lower your effort but what I think is that Blogging is all about learning every day and learning never happens without making mistakes. And this article is just a learning for not only you even for me and everyone who has every dealt with setting up a WordPress site. So this article is meant only to finer tune your efforts of a perfect website. So lets read this post ahead to see what are those 5 things which slipped while you were working hard on your website. Before I go ahead I want to tell that none of these tips are meant for a particular set of advance users but for each one of us who love to work with our site. Let’s have a tip to toe look at those common mistakes by each of us:-

Back up of your CSS When you want your website stand away from rest of the weblogs of internet you have to make many changes on your CSS stylesheet and unlike other normal as usual HTML pages CSS are completely different. So the slight mistake in it can make your website look bad. Which you don’t want to happen so in that case it is always recommended that you have a backup of default stylesheet and infact if possible pre change and post change backups as well. So your backup will be like windows restore point and will never let you rework on the picture.

Google’s AuthorRank

In Google search result you must have noticed a major change over the years and this is the Google+ Profile which is displayed along with each link of your website present on internet. It shows well how many people have you in your circle and the links to other contents that you have published till now. Addition to all this the content sent to Google Plus gives you dofollow backlinks which are precious for any blogger.

Heap of Categories and Insufficient Tags

Category is usually the indicator of what the overall field of the article and tag is the enlist of important keywords which are marked for understanding of Google. Now if you are talking about the latest Apple Iphone the category can be Mobile Review and the tags could be Apple, Iphone, Review, Latest tech update.

Mobile Readers are you There?

Mobile readers are those which were found to be remote users who are not of much importance and donot contribute much to the traffic of a website. But now the situation has changed in fact the Google Search Engine team has informed via email to all the webmasters that whichever site is optimized for Mobile will rank higher in the search engine. Mobile visitors strength and say in contribution to the total visitors is increasing. Even adsense has come up with the ads which are optimized for mobile browsers. Make sure your website is not missing the bus towards the visitors who are searching your website on their mobile. They also are potential users and you have a good chances of building up a user community around your blog which are always available to read your content on their handheld.


Nothing is permanent in the online world except permalinks they are the permanent address of your article which could be reachable only if someone knows this address. You have to be very careful in making these addresses look better and easier for the search engine as well as readers to never judge your content with the date of publication. But with the quality in it and hence you should avoid to use the date/month/year format or any other format other than name-of-post.html format. Even format which is name-of-post/ is not good as it is difficult for some of the browsers to resolve the address without html as extension. So to avoid this and not to loose potential visitors you should keep permalinks clean and clear and should be easy for readers to understand the meaning of them and relevancy with the article title.

Hope you are not in front of any of the slipups as they are most common and impact traffic and page ranking along with the reputation of your website. So keep them clean and stay away from these mistakes and build a beautiful website loved by readers and the search engine. Now concluding this post I want to ask you few questions:-
