2.Part of having an easy to navigate web site is ensuring that the primary means of navigation — links to the key areas of my site — are kept above the fold. With today’s large computer monitors and growing screen resolutions “above the fold” is generally considered to be within the top 500-600 pixels of your site design.

When designing for the screen you’ll want to save my images at 72dpi, which will make for a much smaller file size (aka quicker download time for your web visitors).
9. Responsive website to provide an optimal viewing experience—easy reading for Android and iOs smart phones tablets.
10. Site map
11. Once you’ve installed WordPress, there are a few things that absolutely must be taken care. Two of these items are already included with WordPress – you just need to configure them. Permalinks Although not a plug-in, this is one of the first items that should be setup in WordPress. Permalinks give your blog posts and pages a “pretty” url. Something like yoursite.com/category/post-name/ as opposed to yoursite.com/p=?1234 – not only is this easier on the eyes, but it is SEO friendly since it incorporates keywords into your URL.
12. Permalink Redirect
Related to Permalinks, is the Permalink Redirect plugin. This one doesn’t come with WordPress, however they go hand-in-hand together. This plugin takes the basic Permalink settings a step further by ensuring that there are no excess characters in your URL – in the event there are excess variables, Permalink Redirect sends users to the correct URL.
13. Akismet is a “smart” spam filter, in that it is able to learn what should or should not be considered spam.
14. Google XML Sitemaps Many search engines – in particular Google, Yahoo!, MSN and Ask.com – utilize specially formatted XML Sitemaps in order to properly index all of the pages on your web site.
15. WP DB Backup is the WP DB Backup plugin, which can backup my entire MySQL database -install WordPress Database Backup, which
16 Google analytics.
18. Crawl / Stimulation to avoid broken links, missing titles, improper redirects, and perhaps other problems such as files blocked by robots.txt, etc that may hinder your progress. There are several free tools to help with this, such as Xenu and GSiteCrawler.
