But in here, we use sitemap to categorize our blog posts to relevant categories or something like published date, most commented, most viewed etc. Sitemap is a map of your posts. It helps visitors to find your posts easily than using bloggers' classic blog archive. That's why we must add a sitemap page to our site.

Install Wordpress in your Computer (Localhost)


In these days, wordpress has become the best and most popular blogging platform in the world. So, we every blogger must know how to use wordpress. So, I thought to bring you a valuable and complete tutorial about Using of Wordpress. The special thing is I have created videos for every wordpress lesson, so you can watch them and easily learn how to use wordpress correctly. This is the first lesson of Wordpress.

How to install wordpress

There’re two ways to install wordpress. One is installing in your computer (localhost) and other one is installing in a web server (Web Hosting Service).
As a junior, you have to install wordpress in your computer and then you can use web hosting service.

Files Needed
Before starting installation you have to download three files from internet.

       1) Xampp Server (You can also use Wampp Server)
       2) Latest Wordpress Zip File (Currently Wordpress 4.0)
       3) Any web browser – Firefox, Chrome (If you haven’t )

Then install Xampp server in your computer. Remember to install all services provided by Xampp server. Otherwise you must have installed any web browser to continue installation of wordpress.

Main Steps
After complete Xampp installation, open your web browser and type localhost/phpmyadmin or 127.0.0.1/phpmyadmin in the address bar. This will take you to the database management section of the Xampp server.
Now you have to create a new database for installing wordpress. This database is very important because, every change we make in wordpress is saved in this database. So be aware!
To create new database,
  • click on databases tab.
  • Give a name to database. 
  • Then click create.
Now navigate to your wordpress zip file and open it using WinRar. (If you haven’t WinRar yet, download it from here)

Open wordpress folder and select all sub folders and files then right click and select “Extract to the specified folder”. Then create a new folder and rename it as your database name. You must type the database name correctly. 

Then extract files.

Open your favorite web browser and type localhost/your_database_name or 127.0.0.1/your_database_name in the address bar. (Replace your_database_name with your database name)
Now you’ll see a screen below if you do everything right. Click on “Let’s go!”


Now you’ll see a form to fill. 

1        1)  Enter your database name.

2        2) Enter your MySQL username. Type “root” for this. (This is the default username for MySQL in           Xampp server)

3        3) Enter your MySQL password. Don’t type anything here. (There is no password by default in               Xampp server for MySQL but you can create a password manually)

4        4) Database host: Don’t change this or it won’t work correctly.

5        5) Table Prefix: Don’t change anything here.


  • Now click on submit.

Now you have to enter information about your site. Add some information to continue installation.

     1) Site Title: Give your site name

     2) Username: Fill this very carefully. Enter a username for log your site as administrator. 

     3) Password Twice: Enter a strong password for admin account.

     4) Your E-Mail: Give any active E-Mail address.

*You must remember these login details to log in to your site. If you ever lost your password or username you can get them by an email.
     5) Privacy: If you want to allow your site to index by search engines such as Google, Yahoo and              Bing, tick this box.



  • Finally click “Install Wordpress” for complete installation.
If you did everything right, you will get a success message. Now you can log in to your freshly installed wordpress site with your login details. So enjoy your new site.

Quick AdSense Approval Tips and Tricks


Many blogger know what Google AdSense is and how to earn by it. Also some of bloggers and web site owners make websites and blogs only for AdSense. We called them MFA (Made for AdSense). AdSense is the best paying PPC program ever in internet. But we can’t get it easily. We have to do many things to get it.

Some bloggers and web owners is trying and trying to get approve by Google for AdSense to their sites. But some of them can’t get AdSense. By the way, if you want to get quick AdSense approval by Google, you must have completed some steps before apply for AdSense.


1) Adding essential web pages to blog/web site

There are some essential web pages you must have especially if you’re looking for get quick approved for AdSense. They are,
  • About
  • Contact
  • Privacy Policy
  • Sitemap

These web pages are very essential to a blog or web site looking for AdSense. You can easily create these pages or follow our articles for more information. 


2) Having a good PageRank (PR)

Having a good PageRank (PR) is very important for AdSense. Alexa ranking and Google PR is very essential for AdSense because of Google like to approve web or blog sites which have good PageRank. If your site has low PageRank, first increase your PR and then apply for AdSense. It is very important for get quick AdSense approval.
If you don’t know how to increase PR quickly first follow my posts about SEO and then try to increase PR by doing them.


3) Professional Look

  • You must create your web/blog site with professional look. Use the following tips for build your web/blog site more professionally. 
  • Always choose a theme/template relevant to your blog’s content. In here, it’s better if you choose a light color theme like white. (AdSense likes white color themes than others.)
  • Remove all extra widgets and plugins (Wordpress) to get professional look. Also don’t add lots of flash content to your site, because of flash contents (banners, flash clocks and other effects) takes lots of time to load the page. So always try to reduce flash contents. And also don’t add unwanted widgets everywhere, just only add essential widgets like popular posts, archive, recent comments, social media box etc.
  • Loading time must be low than 5 seconds. Loading time of your web/blog is very important for professional look of your site because of many of popular sites load quickly in 2-4 seconds. You can remove unwanted widgets and especially flash content to reduce loading time.

4) Having a good domain name

Domain name is the heart of any web/blog site. We must have a good domain especially if we’re trying to get Google AdSense. If you using blogger, (BlogSpot) you may have a subdomain (.blogspot.com) or sometimes if you’re using free web hosting service, you may have a subdomain name. But in here, Google likes top level domains (.com/.net/.org/.info) than subdomains. So if you can buy a top level domain you can get easy and quick approval Google AdSense. But if your subdomain (Especially .blogspot.com) has good traffic and PageRank you don’t want to buy a new domain.

5) Minimum Traffic to your site (Daily Visitors)

If your blog or web site is newer, sometimes it may have not much visitors and traffic. First you have to build your audience then apply for AdSense. I suggest if you haven’t much visitors first increase your traffic, I think our SEO (Search Engine Optimization) posts will help you. You must have at least 100 visitors per a day before apply for AdSense. You must remember to only get real traffic (Never get paid traffic).

Related Content: SEO, Backlinks

6) Minimum Content (Minimum posts)

Before you apply AdSense, your blog must have at least 15 posts. Never apply AdSense without enough content (Blog Posts) in your site. And also don`t write short, copied, non-relevant posts etc. Always write quality content with your own ideas.


7) Blog’s/Website’s Age

Never apply AdSense for new sites and you’ll never get AdSense. Your site must old 6 months or more. You can upgrade and develop your site till it passes 6 months.

8) Other advertisements services in your site

You must remove all other advertisements (Bidvertiser, infolinks, Buy Sell Ads) before apply for AdSense. After you get AdSense you can add those advertisements like before.

# Other useful tips you must know!
  • Don’t write illegible, adult contents.
  • Don’t publish copied content from other sites. If you have to publish some text, you must put a link to original source. Always try to publish unique and own content.
  • Always write SEO friendly posts.
  • You must be older than 18.
  • Don’t give backlinks to unwanted sites (Adult sites, unsafe sites) and don’t build backlinks to your site from them.
  • Never get paid traffic to your site. It may cause to ban your AdSense account.


That’s enough! You can easily get AdSense by following my post. If you get anything useful, share this article and feedback!

    Best Blogging Platforms in the World



    In these days, there are lots of bloggers in Internet. Also there are many blogging platforms. As a blogger, many people thing blogging is just creating a BlogSpot blog (They think, blogger is the only blogging platform). As bloggers we must know what are the blogging platforms, advantages and disadvantages of them and what we should select. In these days, following platforms are the most popular blogging platforms.

    These are the most popular blogging platforms. Wordpress (wordpress.org) is the best blogging platform ever in the world. Because of there are lots of advantages than others (especially than blogger). Let’s see what the differences between Wordpress and blogger are.

    # Blogger (BlogSpot)

    Blogger is a fully free blogging platform provided by Google Inc. This is the best and most popular free blogging platform. Blogger is very good for new bloggers to get a basic knowledge for blogging. Let’s see what are the advantages and disadvantages of blogger.

    Advantages:
    • Fully free service.
    • No need to host or get a domain.
    • Site is safe, because of these servers are owned by Google Inc. (Till you keep your E-mail safety)
    • Easy to use, has user friendly dashboard.

    Disadvantages:
    • Low supports for SEO.
    • Themes are poor with features. (Can’t use login, register sections etc.)
    • Don’t allow plugins.
    • We have to edit HTML codes manually.
    • Support only HTML and CSS. We can’t use PHP or any other web designing language.

    # Wordpress (wordpress.org)

    There are two main sections of Wordpress. One is wordpress.com and other is wordpress.org. Wordpress.com is very primary and simple blogging platform. Blogger is better than it. In here, we discuss about wordpress.org.
    Wordpress (wordpress.org) is also fully free service. It’s not only a blogging platform, but also it is a CMS (Content Management System) and we can use it for build any kind of website. In these days 60million websites are made with wordpress. The reason is wordpress is very powerful system for build websites and have many advantages of using it.

    Advantages:
    • 100% SEO friendly

    Easy to optimize traffic and improve SEO. There are lots of plugins to optimize SEO and you can use them easily. No needs to work hard for get traffic like blogger. And also most of wordpress themes are SEO friendly.
    • Easy to find wordpress themes

    There are thousands of quality themes. No need to buy, free themes are also very good making a beautiful web site. And you can get any kind of theme relevant to your website.
    • We can make any kind of website. (Online shopping Centre, software downloading site, personal blog, video blog, social network and any professional website)

    • Trust and respect

    If you’re think to start ads publishing website for make money, so wordpress is the best way to make your website. Because of you can quickly approve your website for it (AdSense, Buy sell ads, Chitika). The cause for it is they respect and trust wordpress than blogger or other blogging platforms.
    • Allow to use plugins.

    Wordpress plugins are very helpful to make our website more attractive and more services. We don’t want to edit HTML codes like blogger to do anything. You can get thousands of plugins for various works. Most of wordpress plugins are free but if you want to get premium features you can buy them.
    • Wordpress support.

    We can find answers easily for any problems we faced in wordpress by visiting their support forum.

    Disadvantages:
    • You need to buy a domain.

    Wordpress is a free blogging platform, but you have to buy a domain name for your website because free domains or subdomains are not match with wordpress site.
    • You need to get paid web hosting service.

    You must have to get a paid web hosting service for host your site. When buying a web hosting service, you must choose a hosting plan relevant to your site.
    • You must give more attention to site safety.

    Wordpress websites are host by private web servers (Host Gator, Blue host). And any hacker can hack and break down your website by hacking attack. So you have to give more attention to site safety.

    These are the advantages and disadvantages of wordpress and blogger. I suggest for new bloggers, use blogger service first and when you got more experience on blogging, you can migrate to wordpress.
