Today, participants in the ThirtyDayChallenge were introduced to ANOTHER cool tool called WordPress Direct that automatically builds your very own SEO optimized content-based blog.
And, in keeping with the Thirty Day Challenge credo, this awesome tool is available at no charge to create up to three blogs. Since I immediately recognized the incredible power of this took, I chose the $1 trial Silver membership that allows me to create up to 15 blogs. Remember though, you can do the whole 30DC without spending a dime. However, if you are willing to spend a few bucks on registering your own domain and hosting your own account, you can get a bit of a boost. That was the option I chose because I know the importance of controlling my own domain name and web hosting… but if you don’t want to fork out a little bit of cash, it can be done completely for no cost whatsoever.
Using the results of my keyword research, I jumped over to GoDaddy to register my chosen domain name. I couldn’t believe that it was available… but it was! Next, I set up a hosting account at HostGator… changed my domain server ID on GoDaddy… and I was good to go.
Following along with the instructions provided by 30DC and WordPress Direct, I had my blog set up and running within just a few minutes. It couldn’t be any easier!
I’m pretty experienced in setting up WordPress blogs so I was initially tempted to do it myself. But, I chose to use this new blog for the 30DC niche site specifically for testing the results of the 30DC. I am not applying other marketing techniques I generally use for other niche’s to this site, but rather limiting it to only what is taught in the 30DC and in the sequence taught by Ed Dale, Dan Raine, and GuruBob. I want to be able to compare results using their methods and to have a site similar to what anybody in the 30DC would be able to build themselves.
So, after using Market Samurai for uncovering a good keyword phrase, within literally a couple of minutes WordPress Direct had auto-generated a beautiful and unique web site that was completely SEO-optimized ready to be filled with content.
