The 5 Most Important Pages On Your Blog!

Most Important Pages On Your Blog

Do you know the most important blog pages you need on your blog? If your old blog is meant to generate income or if you are about creating a new money making blog, there are quite a good number of pages you can create to give out specific information. While these pages are all important, 5 of theme are more crucial. These are more strategic in helping you generate more income and earning more trust for you from your community.

Before I move any further, this is part 10 in the series of creating a blog that makes money. If you missed out the first 9 parts in the series, you may want to check them out.

How to create important blog pages in WordPress

Before we look at these 5 important blog pages, here is a brief guide on how to create pages in WordPress. This is as simple as creating a post.

  • Point to the “pages” link on the left menu of your WordPress Admin and click “Add New
  • Fill the form that shows up: Page title and page content
  • Click to publish when your page is ready.

As a matter of fact, there is no big deal in creating a page in WordPress. It’s as simple as the steps above

Important blog pages – The 5 Most Important Pages On Your Blog

important blog pages

1 – > Contact Page

Your contact page is a direct path to you from your blog. Without a contact page, you are loosing business. Your blog visitors who want to get in touch with you from your blog should not have to go to your Facebook profile or some other site to send you a message. It makes the process more tedious and can keep many discouraged from getting in touch.

You should use a simple contact form and possibly phone numbers and full address.  For contact forms, there are hundreds of plugins out there. However, I warned in the beginning of this series against installing just any plugin. On this blog, I’m using Simple Basic Contact Form which I find very light and secured. If you want an embedded form (without using a plugin), check out how to Creating your First blog post

2 – > About me Page

Many people coming to your blog (especially through search engines) don’t know any much about you. As a matter of fact, my about me page is one of the most visited pages on my blog. It gives more information about me and makes my visitors feel more at home.

People want to deal with real people they can trust so your About Me page should be where to tap more trust from your visitors. You can showcase some of your products on your about me page and talk about the people you work with. That increases trust.

3 – > Service Page

If you offer some services, this is where to give some details about them. Include references and testimonials from clients on this page. This will generally help sell your services

Some bloggers rather prefer listing their services on their about me page which is not bad. However, if you have a lot to write about your services, I recommend creating a separate page for it.

4 – > Disclaimer Page

This is very important for any blog that makes money by selling others’ products. If you link to external resources, you will have to be clear on which grounds you recommend such products. You must not be held responsible for any damage or issues that have to do with the use of those products or links on your blog.

Writing a disclaimer page may not be easy. A fast way is to use a disclaimer generator like this one. You must however be sure to customize it.

5 – > Privacy Policy Page

This is one of the important blog pages every blog should have. This page is also very important if you are dealing with third party advertising partners who may use cookies and web beacons on your blog. Google, for instance, requires a Privacy Policy Page before approving any application for Adsense Account.

This privacy policy page should outline the types of personal information you collect from visitors and how this information is used. Again, you can use this generator to get one for your blog. Make sure you customize it.

These are the most important blog pages I think you should have on your blog now. Depending on your niche or business, you may have to add more pages. That won’t be an issue at all.

In the next part, we will be looking at Creating your First blog post. If you’ve never blogged before, this will be very crucial for you.

I will not forget to give credit to you for teaching me how to generate a privacy policy that got my Adsense account approved.

But, I also think there should be a page that showcases clients one has worked for.

Enstine,

I was curious to see the pages you deemed important for any blog…I was not disappointed! This is also my list of most important pages on a blog.

In the business world, contact is supreme and if you cannot establish it, forget that client. Next to contact is establishing credibility and setting clearly defined lines.

In that wise, I’d suggest that a testimonial page, bragging page or portfolio page is also equally important.

Thanks for this list and do have a supercharged week ahead.

Nice done Enstine,

I never thought about having a disclaimer or a privacy policy page. But it definitely makes a lot of sense to have them. Being in a sue happy nation, you would think I would have these two pages on my blog. Good looking out Enstine!

Wow, I never knew with a generator you could get a working privacy policy page. Thanks so much for sharing. I’m going to try it out

Nice! No doubt interesting. The things that popped up in my mind was:

About me
Home
Privacy Policy Page

And great that they are on your list. I believe these are necessary and most viewers or visitors will try to read something in these pages since they wanted to scan if a certain website it trustworthy, helpful and reliable.

Thanks for sharing. Well-written post!

Hey Enstine,

Well, I’m not making money with my blog. Instead I use it as a tool to connect with people but I do have a resource page mainly because people keep asking me about different things that I use. I don’t have a privacy page or disclaimer page on this blog but I do on the blogs where I only promote affiliate products (my money making blogs).

I guess in my mind since I’m really not promoting anything here then it’s not needed but I do have mentioned for signing up for my list, etc. that their information will never be shared. Do you think I need to include these anyway?

Appreciate your post and thanks for sharing this. Oh and be sure to have a good weekend my friend.

Another good piece from Enstine. I am sure most bloggers will shrug their shoulders and say these are obvious and “I know all that stuff”, but knowing is different from doing.

If they know, do they pay enough importance to these pages? That’s the question. And that’s why this “reminder” piece from Enstine is important.

Thanks to Piyush, for sharing this on Kingged.com, the Internet marketing social bookmarking and networking site.

Hi Enstine,

Most bloggers who start using blogging as a medium do not know about the “disclaimer page”. They need to understand that they come under “unlimited” liability if they do not use the right laws to protect themselves.

This is how many corporations get away with their…”hustle”! 🙂

Though, i just love sticking to the truth, never walk the wrong path from the very beginning…

    Hi Piyush,
    I love the phrase “never walk the wrong path from the very beginning”. You know it’s good to have someone point out to you which path is wrong. That’s what this post is about and thanks for your endorsement.

    Do have a wonderful weekend

Hello Enstine,
The list you mentioned, i have them on my blog except for the privacy policy and disclaimer page. The main reason i hadn’t put it on my blog is because i feel it holds not proper meaning. I might still consider adding it at the long run but for now, i am good 🙂

Thanks for showing us where and how to get ours. do have a wonderful week ahead

Great post, Enstine!

First off, thanks for the contact form plugin 😉 I have been trying to setup a contact form for my blog, but the ones I have tried aren’t working (And I don’t remember which plugins I used to use with my old blogs).

I haven’t setup the other pages yet. But, I do have some ideas – like integrating video into the about page (I think it will help to make it more personal…I want people “connect” with the blog..you know, emotional connection :D).

I look at my checklist, and I don’t see a disclaimer and privacy pages anywhere..guess I forgot about those.

Thank you for the post, Enstine! Appreciate it 🙂

    Hi Jeevan,
    I love the video idea. It connects more emotionally and does the job better.
    If you don’t like the plugins, you can try the embedded forms too. I have seen a lot of people using it.

    Oups! the links are right there at the bottom of the 😉

    Thanks for the comment. Waiting for your blog

Thanks Enstine for reminding me about having a services page. Something I will work on for the start of 2014 and a great way to make a little money via blogging. I like Erik’s comment about a landing page 🙂 I have one of those for my eBook. Have a great day there Enstine.

Hi Enstine,
great post!
You mentioned also a useful resource, to generate privacy policy pages.
May I add one more important page?
“The landing page”, to sell your product!
(BTW, it’s something included in your #3).

Hello Enstine,

Nice post, Pages on a blog is really an important thing from which the reader can know more about blog, author and it’s terms. The blog without pages are considered as nothing.

And i really don’t know that we can create a privacy policy page from a n online generator.

Thanks
