Step by Step – Posting Instructions for PoorManBlogger.com
Log In To Your WordPress Dashboard
After you have logged into my site via WordPress… on the left side of the dashboard hover over Post then click on the Add New button.
Add Your Title and Post Content
Once you get to the ‘Add New Post‘ page, add your Title then add or type your article information within the large box.
* * IMPORTANT – If you are copying your article from a WORD document or other editing software, follow the instructions below:
– Highlight and copy your article, then paste it into the WordPress ‘Add New Post‘ box using the ‘Text‘ tab (the inline code that changes the Look and Feel of this website, from your Word document or other software, will not be transferred into the article.)
– Once you have Pasted your article into the Post box, you can then click on the ‘Visual‘ Tab and continue editing your article.
NOTE: Articles not following these Instructions will be REJECTED!
Add Heading Tags to Outline Your Content
Similar to how this page has been Outlined…
NOTE: The Title shown above “Step by Step – Posting Instructions for PoorManBlogger.com” (along with and any other Post or Page on this site) is already using the h1 Header tag. Search Engines Do Not want to see more than (1) h1 tag per page (article). Meaning… please Do NOT use any h1 tags within your content, use only h2, h3, or h4 Heading tags to create the outline for your article.
To ADD Heading tags to create an Outline for your content, type what the heading should be for your paragraph, then highlight and click on the Paragraph drop-down menu as shown in the image below. Click on the Heading tags that best suits needs. An h3 Heading tag will act as the sub-section for the h2 tag and so on (See the screenshot below).
Choose a Category for Your Article
Choose a Category or two from the box on the right side of the page.
Choose Tags for Your Article
Choose Tag(s) from the blue link “Choose from the most used tags” or create your own by typing the Tags within the box using a Comma in between each Tag Phrase (Optional).
Add Your Title and Description for the Search Engines
Add Your Title and Description using the ‘YOAST SEO’ form below the ‘Add New Post’ box. Use a Maximum of 60 characters for your Title and Maximum 156 characters for your description.
NOTE: Click on the ‘Edit Snippet’ button to add your Title and Description. For the Title, by default, maroon looking buttons will be in the ‘SEO Title’ edit box… if you would like a different title for the search engines compared to your Post Title to your article, put your cursor behind the buttons and use your backspace button on your keyboard to remove them.
Add your Title…
The bar below your Title and Description boxes will go from Orange to Green when you are in the sweet spot for the search engine results page.
As long as you don’t go over the character amounts, it will remain Green.
Add Your Excerpt
You can also add an Excerpt which would be a basic introduction, which will show on the Home or Categories page, to what your article is about.
Click on the Submit for Review
Once you are done, click on the Submit for Review button and I will take it from there.
NOTE: You WILL NOT be able to add any images to this site. By default WordPress doesn’t allow a ‘Contributor’ to upload images to the database, so you will need to respond to one of my reply emails to you and send me the image(s) that you would like in your Post and some basic instructions to where you want them placed, and I will add them for you.
Once I have added the images that you want in your article, I will contact you to let you know when I plan on Publishing your article.
I look forward to seeing your article on my site.
Don’t hesitate to Contact Me with any additional questions you may have.
