    Hey BHW, sorry but my title may be a bit irrelevant to this thread, but I wanted to capture your attention, obviously.

    Ok so here's the deal, about 3+ years ago my dad registered a website with sitesell.com, and if any of you have heard about sitesell you would know that it's a very thorough step by step process mostly for newbies. Crappy in my opinion, way too time consuming.
    (extremely frustrating for more advanced web users)

    I'll go ahead and list the website, it's greatchiletravel.c0m, you'll notice by the crappy theme that my dad doesn't really know what he's doing. He averages about 30 visitors a day. I really feel bad for him, cause we lived in Chile for 14+ years and our knowledge about that country could really be the base of a huge website. I don't know why, I've just never thought about helping him out with the website. But I really want to now.

    I learned more about creating websites in the last month then in my whole life. (Special thanks to BHW) So my dad doesn't even know I could build a website.

    I'm thinking about registering a better domain name related to the same niche. And creating a nice wordpress blog for him. I could probably get way more than 30 visitors a day almost immediately. I want to do this as a surprise for him.

    So, what plugins would you recommend that I start out with?
    And are there any good WP themes I could use related to travel or vacation?

    I would really appreciate any suggestions.

    1) Creating senseless titles is stupidity. Change it

    2) Why do u wanna build a new site/blog. Just optimize & promote the current one.

    YES, GO WITH WORDPRESS.. You will find tons of plugins.. but I have some recommended ones for everyone.. these are enough to make your website rank well and get more than 30 visits in couple of days..

    (Took an screenshot and uploaded) http://i44.tinypic.com/2ywwizm.png .. make a search and you will get the plugin+installation instruction

    Also try out any simple wordpress themes.. depends on you and your dad choice.. I also do wordpress customization service, so let me know if I can help you in anyway..
