Add a blog to my website
Post new content on your blog to engage visitors and build authority. Tips, eye-catching photos, tasty recipes or industry insights — blog items don't need to be long. Consistency counts more than perfection: The point is to make your site stand out in the digital crowd.
This video is part of the How-To series for Adding Advanced Functionality in Website Builder and Using a Blog for Your Business.
- Go to your GoDaddy product page.
- Scroll to Websites + Marketing and select Manage next to your website to open your site.
- Select Edit Website or Edit Site to open your website builder.
- Go to the page and location you want to add your blog posts into your site, and add a section.
- Search for the Blog section. You can only add one Blog section per page. If you don't see a Blog section available, scroll until you find it, then hover over it and use the arrows to move it up or down.
- Edit the title of the blog in the website. Select the Blog section and use the editor panel on the right to also edit the title of the blog as well as the layout, accent color and background image. After you add at least one blog post, then you can also choose which category or categories to display. Or add a new page.
- Select External blog feed if you wish to display blog posts from somewhere else on your site. Enter the Feed URL of that blog. Most blog feed URLs end with /rss.
- Select Done.
- Your changes are saved automatically. Use Preview to see the results and when you're ready to make the changes public, publish your site.
- With that done, here's the fun part: create blog posts.
- Create or change blog categories, which then allows you to create the impression of multiple blogs on your site.
- Tell people when a new post is published by sending snippets of your blog post to subscribers.
