There has never been a better time to start online and to find the stream of an additional income. What does it take to get top rankings and tons of traffic to your website? It’s no magic to rank on the first page of Google. Google is ranking pages, not complete websites. So every page or post you are publishing competes for the first page on Google.

How to select and choose a WordPress theme
Now you’ve started your website, it’s time to choose a theme. There are literally thousands of themes to choose from. (premium only) So we use the feature filter. This filter enables you to extract a selective number of themes.
When you found a theme you like, it’s very easy to install and activate the theme. It takes the click of 2 words. Install. Activate.
The first thing you do after you have installed your theme is to take a look at the customize section. You find the link to it under Appearances > Customize. There can be a huge difference between themes and what you can customize. When you want more possibilities, search for another theme.
Here are 2 completely different themes, Omega and Sydney, and also completely different customizing possibilities. The theme I use for this website is Sydney.
How do we work from this point
