    I have had a site for a few years now, almost. It ranks second on google for the product. And it has THE best keyword URL for the product.

    Only problem is, I got it for offering Cafe Press products, and... I have no idea how to do a layout. I have searched for months for a shop template or something to offer the products in a more professional way, than just lazily throwing all the t-shirts related to the niche on the page... There really has to be a better way.

    Haven't been able to figure out how to install wordpress yet. :( This is frustrating, I really have the best domain for this niche, but don't know how to present them

    Installing WP is no problem. Go to your cpanel, locate fantastico, select Wordpress, install. Just follow the steps. Be sure to install it in a separate folder (/blog/, not in the root because if its your first time using wordpress you may fu*ck something. If you need any further help you can PM me

    Thanks so much for the offer. I am with Godaddy, and have had a lot of problems installing stuff. Some suggest the problems may be Godaddy.. Would it be suggested to just leave them, and try Hostgator or something? If the problem is not Godaddy, I will definitely play around with that til I figure out what I am doing wrong. :)

    Thanks again

    godaddy does not have cpanel

    But they have their own panel that has a one button install for Wordpress
    However I suggest you install wordpress by your self anyway to have the latest version and so on.
    Maybe godaddy offers latest, I don't know.

    But only thing I can think of that makes it not possible for you to install wordpress is that you have not created a MYSQL database for it.

    If you haven't then do that first and you should be good to install wordpress after.

    Didn't know that about godaddy. Installing by yourself is always a better move, but if this is the first time installing WP, the best move is to install it trough the panel/ fantastico. Later when when you get to know WP, how it works, the plugins, templates... you can install it by hand... make a mysql by hand, fine tune the settings, security...
