Previously called "Creating Fat Content", <b>How to Write Great Website Content in 2017</b> has been fully updated with the latest information on creating the type of content that search engines like to rank.<br /><br />As I was updating the book, one thing became clear. Despite numerous algorithm changes, one thing has not changed. Google STILL wants to show the best web pages to its users. But what constitutes the "best"? <br /><br />The answer is quite simple - the best content is the content that the visitors want to see. <br /><br />Not very helpful? <br /><br />This book is packed with practical and actionable advice on what Google actually wants, and how you can deliver it with a simple mindset shift - by thinking in terms of "share-bait" and "link bait". <br /><br />Share bait is content that your visitors want to share with their friends, family and followers. <br />Link bait is the type of content that other webmasters, who have the power to link out to other content, will want to link to.<br /><br />Creating this type of content will give you an unfair advantage as your content has a better chance of not only ranking well, but sticking in the search engines. <br /><br />How to Write Great Website Content in 2017 is a book packed with ideas, tips and strategies, for creating the most captivating, inspiring and fascinating content for your web site. By keeping your visitors happy, you won't have to worry about search engine algorithm changes, or Google slaps. The search engines will want to show your content to their users. <br /><br />In this book, learn:<br />* about Google's constant struggles against spam, and how you can turn all the rules to your advantage.<br />* how we used to write content, and why keyword-focused content no longer works.<br />* where to go to find out exactly what Google wants from the pages it displays in the SERPs.<br />* how to use "footprints" and other techniques for finding the very best, shareable and linkable content ideas.<br />* about the variety of different types of content you can create and publish on your website.<br />* how to find the words and phrases that are essential to include in your own content, no matter what you are writing about.<br />* how to write web content to include all of the ideas in this book, including LSI, theme and SEO.<br />* how you can add additional features to your website to keep visitors coming back for more.<br /><br /><b>About the author:</b><br />Andy Williams has been teaching search engine optimization and content creation since 2004. In 2008, he was teaching his own students methods for creating "future-proof" content that is only now becoming mainstream with SEOs and webmasters who know their stuff. This book teaches you his latest methods.<br /><br />

Master Wordpress using our step-by-step visual approach (<b>over 250 screenshots</b>). This book is a major new release for 2017, covering the latest version of Wordpress.<br /><br />Building a beautiful, professional looking Wordpress website, is no longer the domain of computer geeks. Wordpress makes it possible for anyone to create and run a website that looks great on any device - PC, Mac, tablet and phone, for hobby or business.<br /><br />The primary goal of this book is to take anyone, <b>even an absolute beginner</b>, from zero to Wordpress "guru" in a few short hours. I'll hold your hand, step-by-step, all the way.<br /> <br />You get to watch over my shoulder as we explore the Wordpress Dashboard.<br /><br />Inside this book, veteran Wordpress expert Andy Williams will start at the very beginning. You'll learn important topics like:<br /><br /> • The two different versions of Wordpress.<br /> • Website hosting and domain registrars. How to set this up with separate registrar and host, for more security.<br /> • How to install Wordpress.<br /> • An overview of the Dashboard including how to find hidden items.<br /> • Cleaning out the stuff that is installed by default.<br /> • Finding and installing Wordpress themes to instantly change the look and feel of your website.<br /> • Plugins. What they are and how you can use them to create magnificent websites.<br /> • How to update Wordpress, themes and plugins.<br /> • Every single Dashboard setting, what they do, and what you should use in the settings of your website.<br /> • How to find and use the RSS feeds on your site to help search engines find your content.<br /> • The importance of user profiles, and how to assign a "Gravatar" image to your email address.<br /> • How to create great navigation systems on your site, with custom menus, internal linking and related post sections.<br /> • Enabling and dealing with visitor comments.<br /> • Using the media library for images, video and more.<br /> • The difference between pages and posts, and a simple way to know which one you should be using for each bit of content you publish on your website.<br /> • Effective use of categories and tags. Using these incorrectly can get your site penalized or even banned from search engines.<br /> • How to write posts, and even schedule them so they will be published at some future date.<br /> • Using post revisions.<br /> • Two different types of homepage. A blog style page v a more traditional "static" homepage. <br /> • Using widgets on your site to add neat features.<br /> • This book does not focus on any particular Wordpress theme (website "skin"). Instead, it teaches you how to master Wordpress so you can choose and use any theme you like.<br /><br />You'll also be shown how to install and configure a few plugins to:<br /><br /> • Automatically take database backups and email them to you on a schedule you choose.<br /> • Automatically create important legal pages on your site, like terms and privacy policy.<br /> • Help reduce the amount of comment spam your site receives.<br /> • Setup good SEO practices.<br /> • Setup social sharing buttons on your site, so visitors can easily tell their friends about your great web pages. <br /><br />Most people learn better when they can actually see what they are reading about, so one thing this book isn't, is shy about screenshots. There are over 250 of them, showing you exactly what you will see on your screen, and prompting you to take specific actions as you learn and master Wordpress. You may have heard that Wordpress has a steep learning curve. With this book, you won't even notice it. Each chapter ends with a "Tasks to Complete" section. By completing these tasks, you'll not only become proficient with Wordpress, you'll become confident at using Wordpress. By the end of the book, you'll be building great looking, professional Wordpress websites that look fantastic on any device... And you'll enjoy doing it!

Since<i> Don’t Make Me Think </i>was first published in 2000, hundreds of thousands of Web designers and developers have relied on usability guru Steve Krug’s guide to help them understand the principles of intuitive navigation and information design. Witty, commonsensical, and eminently practical, it’s one of the best-loved and most recommended books on the subject.<br /> <br />Now Steve returns with fresh perspective to reexamine the principles that made<i> Don’t Make Me Think</i> a classic–with updated examples and a new chapter on mobile usability. And it’s still short, profusely illustrated…and best of all–fun to read.<br /> <br />If you’ve read it before, you’ll rediscover what made <i>Don’t Make Me Think</i> so essential to Web designers and developers around the world. If you’ve never read it, you’ll see why so many people have said it should be required reading for anyone working on Web sites.<br /> <br /> <br />“After reading it over a couple of hours and putting its ideas to work for the past five years, I can say it has done more to improve my abilities as a Web designer than any other book.”<br />–Jeffrey Zeldman, author of Designing with Web Standards <p style="margin: 0px;"> </p>
