如何在2021年用WordPress博客赚取额外收入

如何开始博客

你想创建一个博客吗?我们知道发布博客的想法可能会让人感到害怕,特别是如果你不是一个技术娴熟的人。但是,好消息是:无论你的技能如何,创建博客都比你想象的容易。

像WordPress这样的博客平台让任何人都可以在不知道单行代码的情况下创建博客。设置博客后,您可以在后期编辑器中创建与Microsoft Word非常相似的内容。您可以使用易于使用的拖放界面自定义博客的设计,外观和感觉。

换句话说,在2019年创建一个博客比10年前开始更容易。

所以,你想创建一个博客…但为什么要听我们说话?

与其他崇拜专家和假先知不同,我们只传播我们的实践。

我们在我们的职业生涯中建立了几个大型博客,包括这个博客。帮助成千上万的WordPress用户开始使用博客,我们确切地知道如何从头开始构建一个令人惊叹的博客。

无论您是初学者还是仅需要复习,在本指南中,您都可以找到使您的博客正常运行所需的一切。

我们将本指南分为12个不同的章节:

目录

在本分步指南中,我们将指导您在不到一小时的时间内从头开始创建博客。

如果你宁愿直接切入追逐并潜入 分步技术教程,然后去吧。

第1章:为什么要启动博客?

第1章为什么要开博客

自成立以来,博客已经走过了漫长的道路。最初,个人使用它来分享他们的个人想法和意见。现在甚至 全球各地的企业 利用博客扩大影响范围并产生新的潜在客户。

谈到博客,有目的是至关重要的,或者随着时间的推移你会失去方向和灵感。当你的博客有目的时,你的读者会联系它,因为这个目的在你的写作中闪耀。

以下是人们博客的一些原因:

期刊/个人博客

有些人在博客上记录他们正在进行的所有事情,因此他们可以跟踪他们的进度。它可以帮助您与社区中志同道合的人建立联系,并与他们建立长期的关系。

赚钱博客

许多人创建一个只有一个目标的博客:在线赚钱。

您的博客可以是您的半被动收入来源,这意味着即使您没有积极更新它,您也可以赚钱。您可以通过以下方式从博客中获利:

  • 广告:在您的博客上销售广告空间,并从中获得稳定的收入来源。
  • 联属网络营销:将产品推荐给您的受众群体,并在使用您的推荐链接进行购买时获得收入。
  • 销售产品:创建一个您知道您的受众喜欢并在您的博客上销售的产品。

建立自己的权威

在这个拥挤的数字时代,博客可以帮助您展示您的专业知识,并建立您作为权威。为了做到这一点,你必须密切关注你的利基趋势,并不断博客。

请务必定期向您的受众提供建议和建议,这样他们就会发现您的博客是与您的利基相关的所有内容的首选资源。

1.1。为您的博客选择正确的利基

在创建博客时,必须意识到博客并不总是成为彩虹和独角兽。博客是一场马拉松,而不是冲刺。

要长期运营博客,您需要坚持不懈。要坚持不懈,在为博客选择主题时,您需要考虑几个不同的事情:

  • 激情:对于持久的博客,你需要选择一个你真正热衷的话题。你不能连续写一篇不会让你兴奋的话题。
  • 交通量:仅仅因为你喜欢一个主题并不总是意味着它是创建博客的最佳选择。如果没有其他人想要阅读您将要选择的主题的博客,那么在进入之前您需要重新考虑该主题。
  • 目的:在决定主题时考虑博客的目的。例如,如果您想通过广告谋生,但利基率过低而流量较低,那么您可能希望扩大自己的利基市场或改变您的货币化策略。

1.2。忘掉常规写作课

博客与传统写作有点不同。如果你是一个有抱负的博主,那么你可能不得不忘记你在英语课上教过的一些东西。

例如,当您在网上写博客或写作时,建议您制作短句甚至更短的段落,以便读者可以快速使用您的文章。这主要是因为人们对网络的关注时间较短。

另一个区别是,印刷编辑经常建议作家写第三人称。但是,博主们应该用第一人称的声音写作。通过以第一人称语音书写,您就像与朋友一样直接与读者交谈。

除了直接与您的读者交谈外,您还必须针对搜索引擎优化您的博客帖子。这将有助于搜索引擎发现您的网站并将其编入索引,这样您就可以吸引更多搜索引擎流量,也称为自然流量。

第2章:选择博客平台

第2章选择一个博客平台

您选择的博客平台可以创建或破坏您的博客。

并非每个博客平台都是平等的。很容易被所有不同的博客平台所淹没。所以,在你进入之前,值得花点时间研究几个不同的因素:

  • 您的博客目的:在选择平台时,您必须检查它是否与您的博客目标保持一致。
  • 可用性:显然,您需要选择一个易于使用的平台。通过直观的平台,您可以轻松完成任务,并且学习曲线极小。
  • 获利:仔细检查您选择的博客平台是否允许您通过广告从博客中获利。例如,某些平台,如免费的WordPress.com,不允许您通过博客获利。这意味着如果你的目标是这样一个平台不适合你 赚钱博客

2.1。最佳博客平台摊牌

既然您已经知道需要考虑哪些因素,那么让我们来看看现有的不同博客平台。

WordPress.org

wordpress.org

毫无疑问,WordPress是最受欢迎的博客平台。最初,WordPress是作为一个博客平台开始的,但它现在已经转变为一个成熟的内容管理系统。

使用WordPress,您可以构建任何类型的网站,例如电子商务商店,论坛,利基社交网络等。

我们强烈建议您从WordPress开始,因为它可以让您完全控制您的博客。

定价:要建立博客,您需要购买域名和网络托管帐户。域名每年的成本约为14.99美元,网络托管成本每月约为7.99美元。我们已经 与Bluehost达成协议 对于IsItWP用户,所以您每月只需支付2.65美元。

这意味着WordPress托管和免费域名60%的折扣。

维克斯

wix标志

维克斯 是一个免费的网站建设平台,也允许您从头开始创建一个全新的博客。要使用Wix创建博客,您需要将Blog应用程序集成到Wix网站中。免费的Wix计划允许您使用500 MB存储空间和1 GB带宽。

要删除Wix品牌并增强内置功能,您可以购买高级计划,每月17美元起。

WordPress.com

wordpress.com博客平台

WordPress.com是一个免费的博客平台,由与WordPress.org相同的人管理。使用WordPress.com,您可以创建免费博客,而无需购买域名。您可以升级订阅以获取增强功能,例如自定义域,获利功能,其他存储空间等。

一定要看看 WordPress.com和WordPress.org之间的差异

定价:您可以免费开始基本博客。每年48美元,您可以连接自定义域名并删除WordPress.com广告。要通过博客获利,您必须以每年96美元的价格获得高级计划。

博客

Blogger.com博客平台

Blogger是Google提供的免费博客平台。 Blogger允许您创建博客并通过广告从中获利,而无需花费一分钱。虽然它具有运行博客所需的所有功能,但您无法添加电子商务店面等增强功能。

定价:Blogger是一个100%免费的博客平台。

2.2。我们为什么推荐WordPress.org?

我们建议每个人使用自托管的WordPress.org平台,因为它是一个真正优秀的博客平台。我们在所有网站上使用它,包括这个!

自托管WordPress与其他选项之间的主要区别在于它为您提供了完全的自由和对您网站的控制。您可以根据需要自定义外观。您可以随意通过自己的网站获利。您甚至可以在博客中添加在线商店。

最后但同样重要的是,没有人可以删除您的博客只是因为您没有遵守他们的服务条款。请参阅本指南以查看完整列表 WordPress.com与WordPress.org之间的差异。

现在我们已经选择了这个平台,让我们来看看你需要什么才能启动WordPress博客。

第3章:创建博客 – 技术指南(逐步)

第3章开始博客技术指南

创建博客不是火箭科学。使用正确的工具集,您可以轻松地启动并运行您的博客。

无论您想要创建什么类型的博客,您都需要掌握一些内容,例如域名,博客平台和虚拟主机。

设置博客后,您需要自定义其外观,添加基本功能等。

在本章中,我们将解释:

  • 如何选择域名
  • 如何设置域名和虚拟主机
  • 如何在主机上安装WordPress
  • 如何安装WordPress主题来自定义博客的外观
  • 如何安装WordPress插件来添加功能

3.1。如何选择域名

注册域名既简单又便宜,但为您的网站选择合适的域名非常重要,这些域名易于输入和记忆。

您的域名是您在互联网上的博客地址,例如Google.com或IsItWP.com。这是您的客户在浏览器中键入的内容,以访问您的网站。域名通常每年花费14.99美元左右。

让我们来看看为博客选择域名时可以遵循的几种不同方法。

寻找一个可品牌的域名

您可以使用关键字填充域名来提升博客搜索排名的日子已经一去不复返了。虽然在您的域名中包含关键字仍然可以产生积极影响,但填充关键字可能会对您的SEO工作产生负面影响。

在选择域名时,建议使用关键字填充的品牌域名,如ProBlogger.com或OptinMonster.com,如copywritingtweaks.com或killercopywriting.com。

它们不仅容易记住,而且从长远来看它可以帮助您获得积极的SEO影响。

选择正确的域扩展名

.com域名非常受欢迎,以至于人们更有可能在浏览器上输入(yourblog).com来访问您的网站。事实上,如果你选择不同的扩展名,那么你可能想做额外的工作让人们记住它。

当然,我们始终建议为您的博客选择.com域名。但是,如果.com不可用,您可以使用.net或.org。

使用域名生成器

域名生成器由IsItWP提供

为您的博客选择一个完美的域名可能会令人生畏,因为您的第一个域名很可能已经被选中。这意味着您需要集体讨论域名思想并逐个检查其可用性。

域名生成器只需输入一个或两个关键字,即可自动生成大量域名提示,从而帮助您节省时间。

你可以选择 IsItWP的域名生成器 寻找完美的域名。

3.2。如何设置域名和虚拟主机

既然您已经找到了域名,那么您需要做的下一件事就是注册并设置网络托管。

如果您是网络空间的新手,下面是域名的定义和 虚拟主机

域名:您的域名是您在互联网上的博客地址,如Google.com或IsItWP.com。这是您的客户在浏览器中键入的内容,以访问您的网站。域名通常每年花费14.99美元左右,但我们将在本文后面向您展示如何免费获取域名。

网络托管:您的网络托管帐户是您的博客内容和文件的存储位置。把它想象成你网站的房子。当访问者通过键​​入您的网址(域名)尝试访问您的博客时,他们将被定向到存储在您的网络托管服务器中的网站文件。网络托管通常每月收费7.99美元。

当您第一次启动博客时,域名和托管的总成本似乎相当多。

这就是我们与之达成协议的原因 BlueHost的 为我们的用户提供免费域名,免费SSL,以及WordPress主机超过60%的折扣。

默认的WordPress主题很好,但如果您想为您的网站提供不同的外观,那么您可以从官方主题目录中找到另一个主题并将其安装在您的网站上。

但在为博客选择随机免费主题之前,请先查看我们的列表 顶级WordPress主题 并决定哪一个是最佳选择。

如果您选择高级主题,则必须从主题供应商的网站下载并上传到您的WordPress。

第4章:配置博客设置

第4章配置博客设置

到目前为止,您已经拥有了基本的博客设置。

您已经知道如何更改WordPress主题并安装插件。到现在为止还挺好。

在您开始在博客上发布文章之前,您需要更改一些默认博客设置并根据您的偏好进行调整。让我们来看看…

4.1。选择您的永久链接结构

在WordPress中,永久链接是您在网站上发布的内容的网址/网址。这是人们进入浏览器地址栏访问您网站的网页的内容。

错误的永久链接选择可能会损害您的搜索引擎流量和引荐流量,因此在设置网站时选择正确的链接非常重要。

名为Plain的默认永久链接结构在您的URL中包含一些随机数字,它不会告诉您的内容,因此几乎任何其他选择都更好。选择最适合您需求的产品。

要选择正确的永久链接结构,请转到WordPress仪表板中的设置»永久链接。

wordpress永久链接设置

如果您没有任何首选项,只需从列表中选择“帖子名称”选项即可。

4.2。选择搜索引擎可见性

WordPress附带一个选项,允许您轻松阻止搜索引擎单击索引您的网站。更不用说,如果您正在运行公开的网站或博客,则不应选中此选项。

搜索引擎可见性

但是,如果您想考虑阻止搜索引擎索引您的网站,以下是一些用例。

  • 私人内容:您可能不希望将私人内容编入索引,例如会员网站,这是专门为您的会员创建的。
  • 测试/开发/演示站点:为避免生产站点的重复内容损失,您可能希望从搜索引擎中取消索引您的开发站点。
  • 动态内容:同样,如果您创建的动态内容过于频繁,您可能希望阻止搜索引擎将您的网站编入索引。

4.3。配置WordPress定制程序

想要在预览网站外观时立即更新主题设置吗?

现在可以使用WordPress Customizer。 WordPress定制程序允许您使用不同的主题,不同的主题设置等预览您的网站内容。

例如,您可以轻松设置站点标题,标语和Favicon。

要更改设置,您只需导航到外观»自定义。

wordpress定制器

4.4。创建导航菜单

导航菜单提供了一些指向您网站最重要页面的快速链接。在WordPress中,导航菜单是一个主题功能。

它的外观和显示由您的WordPress主题控制。创建了一些重要页面后,您可以继续设置导航菜单。

要添加,编辑或管理导航菜单,请转至外观»菜单。然后,单击“创建新菜单”。

在WordPress中创建菜单

现在将提示您指定菜单名称。

正如您在屏幕截图中看到的,我们的主题支持2个不同的菜单位置:顶级菜单和社交链接菜单。请记住,菜单位置及其名称因主题而异。

接下来,选择要添加到菜单的页面,然后单击“添加到菜单”。

位置菜单结构

您可以通过拖放重新定位菜单。然后,您可以选择菜单位置,然后单击“保存菜单”按钮。

4.5。设置边栏/页脚小部件

WordPress小部件是简单的可移动元素,可让您轻松自定义您的网站。您可以使用小部件执行各种操作,例如显示最近的帖子,热门评论,电子邮件注册框等。

您可以将小部件添加到网站的小部件就绪区域。通常,这意味着您的博客侧边栏,但许多主题支持将小部件添加到页脚以及主页中的其他部分。

要将小部件添加到小部件就绪区域(例如侧边栏和页脚),请按照以下步骤操作。

导航到外观»窗口小部件。

wordpress小部件

在左侧面板中,您可以找到可用小部件的列表。您可以在右侧找到几个不同的框,这些框是您的主题支持的小部件就绪区域。

在我们的示例中,我们的小部件支持3个不同的小部件就绪区域:侧边栏,页脚1和页脚2。

要添加小部件,您只需将其拖动到任何小部件就绪区域即可。

4.6。决定接受评论

评论是任何博客或在线出版物的命脉。博客不是独白。它们是为了通过评论与读者进行双向对话而构建的。

通过博客评论,您可以鼓励您的读者与您和其他读者互动。但是你总是需要在评论上线之前调整你的评论。这样您就可以确保只发布合法的评论。

默认情况下,WordPress允许用户对您的博客发表评论。如果您不想接受评论,可以转到设置»讨论,然后取消选中允许其他人发布新文章评论旁边的框。

4.7。决定允许Pingbacks / Trackbacks

就像评论一样,默认情况下,WordPress允许pingbacks和trackbacks。 Pingbacks和trackbacks允许其他博客在链接到您时通知您。

由于大多数pingback和引用都是垃圾邮件,因此在您的网站上禁用它们符合您的最佳利益。要执行此操作,您可以通过转到设置»讨论,取消选中允许来自其他博客的链接通知框。

4.8设置所需的时区

默认的WordPress时区是UTC +0。在您的网站上安装WordPress后,您可能希望将时区更改为您的首选项。这使您可以轻松提前安排帖子。

要更改时区,请转到设置»常规,然后选择城市或UTC时区偏移。

Chapter 6: Working with WordPress Editor

chapter 6 working with wp editors

WordPress boasts about being the best publishing platform in existence, in terms of popularity and flexibility. Of course, with a whopping 60% market share, WordPress beats the pants off all their competition.

However, the main downside is that the post and page editors aren’t as sleek as other blogging platforms. The default WordPress editor, which now known as Classic Editor, has a word processor style interface. It allows users to input text in either Text or Visual modes. Since it had been a part of WordPress for over a decade, existing users are accustomed to this interface.

However, editors of other publishing platforms, such as Medium or Ghost are way more intuitive than that of WordPress.

To make adding rich content to WordPress easier and enjoyable, with the 5.0 release, WordPress will be shipped with a brand new editor, known as Gutenberg.

In this chapter, let’s take a look at the differences between Gutenberg and Classic Editor.

6.1。 Writing Content – Classic Editor vs. Gutenberg

By default, WordPress is shipped with Classic Editor, which allows users to input text in either Text or Visual modes.

经典编辑

With Classic Editor, users can’t preview the finished page instantly while writing the content. Editing and moving different elements can also be a hassle. Users will have to switch back and forth between Text and Visual modes. They can also create spacing and sizing problems. This is where the Gutenberg editor comes in.

The Gutenberg editor lets you see how a finished page looks like while in the editor. That way you can adjust sizing and spacing in real time without having to switch to the preview panel. The entire editing experience has been rebuilt for media-rich content.

gutenberg editor

Gutenberg separates all the elements on your content into individual units called blocks. Unlike the Classic Editor, Blocks in Gutenberg help you easily customize the style and appearance of your multimedia content without the need of using custom code.

6.2。 Deciding on Choosing a Page Builder

Without a doubt, Gutenberg’s built for providing unmatched writing and editing experience on WordPress. Its goal is to make adding rich content to WordPress simpler and enjoyable. However, it doesn’t mean to replace the page builder plugins for WordPress.

The built-in WordPress editors come with all the essential tools out of the box to create a basic page on your site. However, if you want to build an eye-catching page, then you might want to use a page builder on your site.

Not only does it help you create a custom layout for your web page, but you can also create a stunning page without changing your existing WordPress themes.

我们建议使用 Beaver Builder for building a custom page. You can also check out the best page builders for WordPress

We hope now you have a basic idea about WordPress editors. In the next 2 chapters, we’ll explain how to create WordPress pages and posts.

Chapter 7: Creating WordPress Pages

chapter 7 create a page on wordpress

In WordPress, you can publish content either as a post or page. When you want to publish a regular blog article, you write a post and when you want to publish a standalone web page, like About, Contact pages, you write a page.

Another difference is that Posts allow you to organize the content using categories and tags, whereas pages allow you to apply custom templates and reorder them based on your needs.

7.1. Essential Pages You’ll Need

主页

Your homepage is probably the first page your visitors see on your blog. To warmly welcome your first-time visitors, you might want to customize your homepage. Just take a look at an example of IsItWP’s homepage for inspiration.

By default, WordPress sets your blog page as the homepage. However, you can create a page and choose it as your homepage. Before you dive in and create a homepage, below are a few things to consider.

Before you dive in and start promoting your blog, it’s essential for you to publish some pillar content on your site. In fact, no one wants to stick to a site that doesn’t provide value. That means, if you’re driving traffic to a blog that doesn’t have a solid foundation, like pillar content, then you’re losing some of your most valuable assets: time, money, and other resources.

Pillar content is the founding stone of your blog. Usually, it’s a series of blog posts that represent your best work, but it can also be infographics, videos, or any other type of content.

The main benefit of pillar content is that it brings in a rush of new visitors and backlinks. Since it provides some sort of value, your audience is more likely to stick to your blog and promote it. Best of all, it continues to attract more traffic – long after they’re initially posted.

The success of your blog lies in how persistent you’re in terms of producing quality content. Now, you don’t have to produce one blog post every day. Have a publishing schedule and stick to it.

9.2. Email Outreach

Once you’ve laid a solid foundation for your blog by creating a series of pillar content, it’s time to step up and start promoting your blog.

Email outreach helps you promote your blog in a few different ways: You can drive traffic and backlinks, get press mentions, offer guest posts on popular blogs, and more.

Without a doubt, email outreach is the easiest way to develop a personal connection with influencers in your niche. Here’s how to do email outreach, the right way.

To create an email newsletter, you can choose an email marketing software like Constant Contact 要么 MailChimp。 You can occasionally send them useful emails to build a longlasting relationship. Once in a while, you can promote your recent blog posts in your newsletter and encourage your subscribers to visit your site.

Social media is one of the most reliable traffic sources for your blog. If you’re struggling to crack the code on driving social traffic to your blog, below are a few tips that might help.

Set Up the Basics

Create a profile for your blog on various social networking sites. You can showcase those profiles on your blog and encourage your users to connect with you. Additionally, install a social sharing plugin like Shared Counts and make it easier for your users to share the content on social media.

Focus on One or Two Social Media Platforms

Focusing on every social network out there can spread yourself too thin. If you’re under a limited budget and resources, it’s in your best interest to focus only on one or two social platforms initially.

Create shareable infographics:

You can either hire a graphic designer or create it by yourself using an infographics creator tool such as Canva, Piktochart 要么 Visme。 After creating it, make it shareable by providing an embed code that your users can easily use.

Reach out to likely linkers:

Create a list of blogs that are likely to provide a link back to your blog. For instance, you can find blogs that publish weekly recap about your niche and ask them to feature your article in their upcoming post.

Publish interviews:

Create a list of influencers and publish a one-question interview with them. Chances are they’ll likely add a link to the interview you’ve published.

Guest blogging:

Publish high-quality guest articles on reputed sites in your niche. While it’s an effective strategy to gain links, keep in mind that Google has cracked down on marketers who abuse this tactic with low-quality articles and links.

How does a blog differ from a website?
A blog is just a type of website that publishes articles in reverse chronological order. Blog articles are usually published using a blogging platform like WordPress, so anyone who can’t code can start a blog with ease. Once the blog is set up, you can easily start creating content in your post editor and publish it with the click of a button.

Can I create a blog without WordPress?

是! There are dozens of blogging platforms such as Blogger, WordPress.com, and TypePad. But we always recommend you to start a blog on self-hosted WordPress because it gives you full freedom to build a blog the way you want with no restrictions.

What’s the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org (self-hosted WordPress)?

WordPress.com is a free blogging platform that lets you kickstart a blog with ease, but it comes with a lot of restrictions such as limited theme availability and limited storage space. Plus, the free platform doesn’t allow you to monetize your website.

WordPress.org, also known as self-hosted WordPress, requires you to own a domain name and a hosting account to run a blog. With a self-hosted platform, you get full control over your blog, can monetize your blog the way you want, get unlimited theme and customization options, and enjoy unlimited storage space depending on your hosting provider.

How much does it cost to start a blog?

To start a blog on self-hosted WordPress, you’ll have to purchase a domain name for $14.99 per year and a hosting account, which costs around $7.99 per month. Altogether, starting a blog will cost as low as $110.87 annually.

You can find thousands of free themes and plugins for your blog. However, if you prefer premium themes and plugins, the running cost of your blog may go higher.

Can I start a blog anonymously?

If you want to publish a blog but remain anonymous, then you need to make sure to protect your domain with WHOIS privacy turned on. For anonymous blogs, people often use a pseudonym/nickname to write under. You can even create a unique email just for writing your blog.

What should I start a blog about?

While you can start a blog on any topic, it’s advised to start a blog on a topic that you’re really passionate about. Or you can even start a personal blog, documenting your data-to-day life and reach out to like-minded people on the web.

Can I run a multi-author blog?

是。 WordPress comes with 5 default user roles that will help you manage and control permissions for each author on your blog.

Can I add an eCommerce storefront to my blog?

是! Adding an eCommerce storefront allows you to easily start selling physical or digital products right from your blog. Just install a plugin like WooCommerce and integrate an eCommerce storefront into your blog so you can start selling your products.

How can I learn more about WordPress terminologies?

Refer to this WordPress Glossary Terms for Beginners whenever you’re puzzled by strange WordPress terms or abbreviations.

Can I start a blog in multiple languages?

With WordPress, you can easily start a multilingual blog with a multilingual plugin such as Polylang. You might also want to choose a WordPress theme that supports the multilingual plugin you want to use.
