Building a WordPress website 2018 – HTTPS – SEO Full Tutorial

Building a WordPress website 2018 – HTTPS – SEO Full Tutorial. Video tutorial on using self-hosted WordPress ( and not to make a website.
What we need to follow this video (I am also using them):

Namecheap (Domain registrar):
Siteground (web host):
Genesis (theme):

*****If you use the URL links on the video, I will be receiving commissions from the products that I am also personally using. Thank you for this. Will be much appreciated.

We’ll build a premium business website from 0 step to finished. I’ll show you how we setup our site to have a secure badge or https on a visitor’s browser, this security information of your website is very important these days and it will give you benefit to have both visitors and SE’s trust and positive impact.

We will also have a fixed header menu both on desktop and mobile view for optimized visitors experience on all devices. This step will be optional.

Next, we will optimize our site with internal and external SEO by opmitizing our site pages and submit it to giant SE webmaster tools.

In the website, we will add video header optionally, call to actions buttons, your client testimonials with slider style, price tables, newsletter and your business profile includes its schema structure for SE to show your business profile microdata on Google search results.

This website will cost you about 200 USD, and I think it may cost you a lot more if you hire a developer to build an exact website.

1. Registering a domain:
2. Pointing NC to HostGator (KIMWP as coupon):

  • IMHO I would edit writing settings….its good measure to change the default category to one that is keyworded to what the site's main keyword will be. So go to posts then add category then come back to writing settings and switch default category to that one. Leaving it uncategorized doesn't help as much…..just a suggestion. Great job in breaking down each section by time stamp we can quick jump to. Very smart!
