A lot of scripts in all probability have this possibility, but whenever you use a few of the free bloghosts you in all probability have to ping yourself after every post. WordPress does this for you automatically which saves time and makes your life simpler.
Another trick to succeed in blogging is to make use of other social media sites like Twitter and Facebook for promoting your blog. You do not need to have thousands of followers and friends if not even half of them will visit your blog or if they are not even in your target audience.
wordpress is a very popular, simple to use platform for blogging. It requires no technical knowledge, if you can use MS Word then you can use wordpress too.
The rest of your phrases can be the titles of you blog posts. Make sure to use your main keyword a few times throughout your posts, but do not over do it.
There are also thousands of plug-ins available to use which can be installed the same way as installing a new theme. These plug-ins are designed to make your job of building a website much easier. Most plug-ins are free to download and use.
The downside is that the really good writers who can craft great sales letters or otherwise motivate your readers to do something can and will charge a premium for their services. It can be worth it though.
One thing you don’t want is for your website to look spammy, and too many text links on a page will do just that. So, to prevent this possibility you can specify how many text links the plugin should insert per post/page. You can have from to unlimited. I recommend you stick to no more then 2-3 links per page so you don’t look like a spammer.
