Once you have become practiced at blogging, having a guest blogger add some of their quality content to your website refreshes your content. Guest blogging is a terrific way to trade your knowledge with someone else’s and create quality links back to your website.
As a small local business, you may have more than one employee publishing information to your blog or website. WordPress does an excellent job creating useful user roles for a variety of applications. Here are the user roles and generally what each of them do:
Manages all aspects of website and can change anything from widgets and plugins to posts and pages
Writes, edits, publishes posts and pages for themselves and others
Writes, edits, publishes their own post (no access to pages)
Writes and edits their own post. Cannot PUBLISH posts or access pages.
Only manages own profile. No access to writing posts or pages
If you’d like more technical details about these roles, be sure to check out the WordPress Codex. But don’t get lost in all the geek speak.
Today’s video takes you step by step through how to add each type of user. The video also shares how you can apply each of these different roles in your small local business or with simple guest blogging.
