Start Here Page

As your blog gets older, you will have a lot more content to showcase on your front-page. This may leave new users a bit confused about how they can make the most out of your blog. This is where a Start Here page comes in handy.

The purpose of this page is to introduce new users to your most useful content. This give users a clear idea about how they can benefit from your content, and what are the resources that they should check out first.

Products / Services Page

If you are using an ecommerce platform like WooCommerce to sell products, then it will automatically create a shop page that you can just add to your navigation menus.

 

On the other hand, if you are selling products or offering services without using an eCommerce plugin, then you will need a product or services page for them. You can also create a parent page to list all your products and child pages for individual products with more details.

Archives Page

WordPress automatically create a date, category, and tag based archives. However, the information is still scattered across different pages and may not allow your users to get a bird’s eye view of your most valuable content.

 

This is where a custom archives page comes in. It is a simple page that you can use to display your popular posts, compact archives, top categories, tags, and more.
