    good luck!

    Great guide! I gotta tell ya, if you take a look at my hacked up WP blog, auto profit launcher, you will see that I came upon your post a little too late. lol

    This will give me the opportunity to make some much needed adjustments, thank you.

  3. Great guide you made, I my selves have although used 1 click install hosting till now, which makes it even easier.

    I noticed you recommend to take a hosting packages for multiple domains, i also use that, but i also spread my pages to different hosting companies in different countries, to get maximum SEO value, as far as i have understood, google will detect that links comes from same IP tree and give them less value?

    Anyway bottom line you did great job with this guide,i am sure it would come in handy for many new bloggers

    WordPress is the CMS of choice. Many new internet marketers either don’t know this or are misguided. I wish I had gone for WP when I first started online, WP + Thesis = 80% seo work done.

    Being an HTML/PHP coding guru, I never thought that WordPress was really worth using… Does it really make things easier? To me it seems like more hassle, but that’s probably because I’ve never used it. I think I should give it a try.

    I must agree that this free beginner’s pdf guide to WordPress is a must have for a wordpress newbie. I downloaded it for curiosity’s sake and as I browse the pdf pages, I am gratified by the richness of it’s step-by-step content and the effort in providing the visual aids / screenshots. The 3.6 mb file size is worth downloading and browsing. This is a good find and I’m glad I downloaded it. Can’t wait to share it with some friends.

    Good job.

    Glad this guide helped setting up your own WordPress site.

  13. that’s a great guide. I think installing wordpress is easy – that’s just clicking fantastico in your host. the headache is when modifying them. loads of work ahead and sometimes you’ll end up messing the whole theme if you happen to forget making back ups! 😀
