UDesign theme – WordPress Tutorial for Beginners

Hello everyone and welcome to another WordPress tutorial for beginners video.

One of the things we really like to emphasise is that you make sure that all the bits and pieces of your website actually work. By that we mainly mean the links, but also that your slides function properly, the pages have information relating to the page’s title, and so on.

It sounds pretty obvious, but you’d be surprised by how many people don’t check the smaller details. It’s also understandable – if you’re running a full time business then you don’t have a lot of time left to learn all of this website building stuff, which includes ironing out all the functionality bugs.

That’s why we’re delivering these WordPress tutorial for beginners videos. More than half of all visitors to a website are likely to spend less than 15 seconds visiting your site. It’s hard enough offering them a website that makes them want to stay – you make that invitation all the less appealing if your site has broken links, broken features, or if it’s hard to navigate.

As you advance in your website-building prowess you’re going to come across the phrase “bounce rate.” Bounce rate is the percentage of people who leave your site after only looking at your home page for a few seconds and progressing no further into your site.

This (and our other) WordPress tutorial for beginners videos are here to help you lower that mean old bounce rate. At the very least you won’t be losing visitors because they click on a link to go further into your site only to find that it doesn’t work.

With that in mind, let’s take a look at some of the behind-the-scenes pulleys and gears of your WordPress site. Do keep in mind that WordPress has many alternative templates, and not all of the behind-the-scenes stuff works exactly the same for all of the templates.
