How to set up WordPress for the first time

WordPress sites are very easy to set up. All you need to do is edit the title and a few other information. However, there are some important changes that you should make before it is too late.

If you are a blogger you might want your home page to display your blog instead of a static page. If you are a business you definitely require a static page to display on your home page. You can also create pages to act as landing pages for future marketing purposes. The purpose of a blog is to drive traffic through content marketing.

For bloggers or for companies who are serious about their content marketing, there is a need to adjust the permalink settings. Change the settings to post name, the default is ‘day and name’ and this can affect your SEO. You can also create a custom URL structure using some suggested tags to make the process seamless.

The privacy page is already set up for you unlike on other platforms. You also have the option to edit the auto-generated privacy policy to suit your needs. If you already have a privacy policy somewhere online you have an option to paste the link.

 

The Operating System of the Future

The ban on Huawei from using Google Mobile Services (GMS) has led Huawei to develop its own operating system. Harmony OS is the name of the software. Huawei envisions an operating system which works on a variety of devices like smartwatches, smart televisions and mobile phones. This development has caused a lot of excitement among technology enthusiasts. Is Harmony OS the operating system of the future?

The operating system of the future must be able to run on different types of devices. Harmony OS seems to be the real deal until you compare it with Fuchsia. Google’s own operating system, Fuchsia, is currently under development. Most of the groundwork has been done.

We expect Harmony OS to launch on many devices in early 2021. Google will most likely follow suit because there is a risk of losing users to a competitor.  This can only happen if Harmony OS proves to be better than Android. It shall be interesting to watch how the story unfolds. The contenders for the number one operating system will go head to head in a competition to take the largest market share. I personally put my money on Fuchsia, what do you think?
