  3. Go to the Plugins menu and select the “Add New” option.

  5. Use the Browse button to search for the DIYLandPage.zip file from your hard drive and upload it to your blog then click on the “Install Now” button.
  6. This will upload the plugin software to your blog.

Using the DIY Landing Page Plugin

The plug-in will display your landing page content without the headers, sidebars and footers found on the other pages created on your WordPress site. This means that there is no additional “clutter” distracting your customers from reading the information you’ve written on your landing page — making it much more effective. And since your page’s content is created within WordPress and can make use of all of WordPress’s SEO benefits it’s very easy for you to maintain it and take full advantage of all of WordPress’s features and benefits.

To create a landing page using the plug-in, follow these steps:

  1. Create your page’s content.
    This is done by creating a normal “Page” (not a blog post) within your WordPress admin.
  2. Use the DIYLandingPage plug-in to mark the page as a landing page.
    This step causes the DIYLandingPage plug-in to recognize the page’s content as a landing page, rather than a normal WordPress page. This means your page will be displayed without WordPress’s standard headers, footers and sidebar widgets.
  3. Optionally, exclude the page. You can use the Exclude Pages plug-in if you do not want your page to appear in your navigation menus or Pages sidebar widget.
  4. Promote Your Page!
    Your page is all set. Google will find and index your page, just like all of your other pages. If you’re using a plugin for SEO, you can set keywords and descriptions just like any other page on your blog. Only it’s appearance in a web browser will be different.
