Step 2– Give your page a title and permalink.

Step 3 – Hit publish once you are done adding content to the page.

Here’s a list of six important blog pages every blogger should add to his/her weblog.

Contact Page

Contact Page Example

When you write high-quality articles, you open up the gates to many opportunities.

People may want to work with you, ask for your help, interview you, and pay you for sponsored post.

But how do they contact you?

Without a contact me page, those doors get closed and your chances of getting popular or making money reduces.

You don’t need to create a super beautiful contact page; a simple one does the job for you.

Many themes give a predefined option to make a page as contact page by adding forms on the page.

If yours don’t, then you can use a simple plugin called contact form 7 to create a quick contact page.

About Me Page

About Me Page Example

I have a habit of knowing people more. About how they started doing something, what inspired them and all.

So, whenever I visit a new site, you’ll find me reading site owner about me page. I just love to read background stories.

And I’m sure; I’m not the only one who does this.

Having an about me page helps your visitors know you better and connect with you.

And by placing Call to Action section on your about me page, you can quickly achieve unexpected results.

Be sure to follow the below outline of a perfect about me page.

Sitemap

Sitemap is a page which is not for your visitors but web crawlers.

You can, however, design your sitemap page to make it user-friendly and easy to navigate, but very few of your visitors will be visiting it.

Sitemap contains links to all the post and pages to your website which makes web crawlers easy to index your latest articles and rank them.

You can create a sitemap page for your site using any of the below WordPress plugins.

Once you have added this page to your site, don’t forget to submit it to search engines.

Affiliate Disclosure

If you are promoting affiliate products on your site, then this page is a must for you.

Affiliate disclosure page is used to disclose that you use affiliate links on your site which will earn you a commission when someone buys using that link.

It is a simple page, but its value is highly useful.

Many affiliate networks may reject your application if you don’t have this page.

Below are some tools to generate affiliate disclosure pages which can help you.

Privacy Policy

Privacy policy page is crucial for every website irrespective of their niches.

Here you must outline personal information you may collect from your visitors using any form.

For instance, I collect email and name if users who wish to be a part of my newsletter.

Privacy policy page is also vital for sites that rely on Third Party Ad Networks for blog monetization.

This third party ad platforms stores user’s cookies to display relevant ads. Hence, it is important to mention the use of cookies clearly within your privacy policy page.

Moreover, Google and other networks need a privacy policy page before they approve your site to display ads.

Adding a privacy policy page can ve confusing as most of us have no idea of legal terms.

Below are few tools to help you create privacy policy page. Be sure to customize them accordingly.

Service Page

Service page example

If you provide any services related to your website, then adding a service page can be one of the best things you can do.

Of course, it is optional, and you don’t necessarily have to have it on your blog.

You can also add a contact form below the service page to provide your visitors an easier way to connect with you.

If you need inspiration, then do check out these insanely powerful service pages.

404 Error Page

404 Error Page Example

Whenever a visitor tries to visit a link or page on your site which is not present, he’ll be taken to the 404 Error page.

By default, your 404 error page will have a simple layout with a link pointing back to the homepage.

However, this simple layout may not please your visitors and make them leave your site.

But if you can show some creativity, you can easily trigger your visitors to visit the homepage or do a quick search on your site.

Just came across your blog through a comment you left on Matthew Woodward’s blog. Honestly, I have never considered About me page as a necessity but thank God I came across this article. Now, I will get back to work and create all those pages that are missing on my blog. Thanks for sharing!
