Adding New Posts in Wordpress


Back to Blog

Most of my websites are built on Worpdress CMS (Contact Management System), this allows my clients to have complete control over editing content. Here is some guidance on “Adding New Posts in WordPress“.

What are posts?

Posts are typically chronological news articles on a website but they can also be used for other things. Here is a great video to explain how to add and edit a post:

My top tips for adding a new post:

  • Make the post title relevant – the more relevant it is the better this is for Search Engine Optimisation. So if your post is about making a gluten free loaf then a good title would be “Gluten Free Bread Recipe”.
  • Preview your posts – checking for any layout issues.
  • Spell check your posts – any words the editor thinks are wrong will be underlined in red.
  • Add images to your posts – keep them more interesting.
  • Add posts regularly – Search Engines e.g Google like to see new content on a website, it means they will come back more regularly to update the information they record on your website.
  • Don’t be nervous – practice will help you develop your own writing style.

For any of my clients who have any questions about writing a new post in WordPress drop me an email or give me a call and we can talk through next steps. If you are looking for someone to build you a new content managed website please contact me.
