    Hi
    I have been thinking about creating a website for a while now and I have been reading through this site to try and educate myself (I am a noob). I have found a niche in a industry and I want the site to be a mix of Articles with a job board on it( where I can post links from indeed).

    I have a few questions if you wouldn't mind helping me out with:

    1) Does SEO matter as much if I intend to directly contact the companies and employees?
    2) I read that some WP themes come with licences to restrict you, is that true? Also could you recommend a theme for a article/job board site?
    3) What is the best service to use when buying hosting and a domain name without trying to sell me a service of yours?.
    4) I know content is king and I plan to outsource so I don't set limits on myself. Is Fiverr the best site to use for content writers?

    I think that is everything :)

    Drown me with knowledge pls

    Thank you.

    Hi there!
    1- It always matter because that way, you can have lots of people to directly contact you or share your website.
    2- The license just stop you from updating the theme, nothing else. The same goes for plugin btw. But i don't advice to install a nulled theme as it's a breach in security. Unless you nullify yourself.
    3- I have tried 1&1, OVH, GoDaddy and Siteground and my favorite is SiteGround. Their plan for WP is 50% off for the first time, and it's really quick for the price imo.
    4- I don't think fiverr is the best and IIRC it's 5$ for 500 words. You could try the marketplace here or upwork maybe. Just take 1 article and see by yourself if it's high quality or not.
    Hope i helped

    Regarding 4, "Content is King", I used to believe this. Now I find it debatable. IMO it's true only in some cases. I'd focus on overall strategy. Content + quality + website appearance (if a site looks old, outdated or crappy, it may put off potential clients/customers...) + long run ROI of your efforts. Upwork > Fiverr, definitely.

    1. Since ou are trying to get traffic manually, SEO may not be needed
    2. Buy license for the theme/plugin you want to use. Save a lot of headache on the long run.
    3. Been using Namecheap hosting for the past 3 years and no hassles at all. Host a lot of my website and those of my clients on a $37/month package.
    4. You can get very good writers on fiverr. You need to try some and see what they come out with.

    Thanks for the replies, I have much to consider lol . I have been on themeforest for the past hour or two and have found only two themes that meet my requirements. But then I thought. If there is a theme I like without the job part on it then surely with some tweaking I'd be able to add it myself (with the help of google of course). Am I correct in thinking that?

    1) Does SEO matter as much if I intend to directly contact the companies and employees?

    Yes, seo is still important, otherwise you're limiting your audience.

    2) I read that some WP themes come with licences to restrict you, is that true? Also could you recommend a theme for a article/job board site?

    Yes it can be, some have developer licences. These are usually to stop you buying a single user and then selling it on.

    3) What is the best service to use when buying hosting and a domain name without trying to sell me a service of yours?.

    Avoid EIG hosting, but what are your requirements ? There's some decent hosting available in the marketplace.
    Siteground is very good but not cheap, about $23 a month, if memory serves me right
    .


    4) I know content is king and I plan to outsource so I don't set limits on myself. Is Fiverr the best site to use for content writers?

    Not really. Check marketplace on here, depends on your budget too.
