Creating pages is great for building your website and your viewers. The more pages and blog posts you create, the better search engines like Google, will be able to analyze your blog. Having amazing keyworded pages and blog posts are crucial to showing up on the first page of google and other search engines.

You also want to make sure that you have pages that describe you and your brand. Welcome pages, and about me pages are great pages to tell your readers more information about you and your blog missions or beliefs.

Lastly, although most important, your blog must have 3 essential legal pages. These 3 legal pages are important for protecting your blog legally. You are actually required by law to have these 3 pages viewable to your visitors.

Plus, in order to monetize your blog and start making money, you need these legal pages to join and be accepted to many affiliate programs. Programs like Google actually require you to have all 3 pages in order to be accepted.

Didn’t know the importance of these pages below? Here’s the 7 essential blog pages you need on your blog.

Essential blog posts

Welcome / home page

The first essential blog page I strongly recommend that you create, is a welcome / home page. This can be one of the first pages that someone sees when they visit your blog. Make sure that in your welcome page you explain and highlight your brand or business.

Give a quick overview of your services and what content you provide. Quickly explain to your audience how your blog / webpage is perfect for them.

Include a call to action. This can be anything from directing your audience to read your newest blog posts, to subscribing to your email newsletter. Have links directing to your products and services if available.

Keep it simple. Don’t overload your reader right away. Over-stimulation can lead to them leaving your web page.

Lastly, don’t forget to highlight you. Just a little bit. Share a quick summary about yourself and your story and provide a link to the next essential page.

About me page

Your about me page highlights you. But not in a journal, biography sort of way. More in a how you and your story inspired you to start your blog. How you got to where you are. Your story, but relating to your website and niche.

Always remember your audience when you are creating blog posts. Make sure your content is aimed at them and how you can help them.

Disclaimer and/or disclosure page

A disclaimer page is one of the 3 essential legal pages you need on your blog. A disclaimer page informs your readers that you and your brand do not take responsibility for things published or seen on your blog.

It lets them know that you are not a professional (unless stated to be) and you cannot be held liable for any outcomes.

For example, lets say you write a post on how you tripled your blog traffic in 1 month and they follow your strategies and don’t end up tripling their blog traffic in 1 month, you cannot be held responsible.

Additionally, your disclaimer page should include your affiliate disclosures, if you don’t have a a separate disclosure page/policy. You need to include this if you plan on using affiliate links to monetize your blog.

Quick tip: Make your disclosure policy a reusable block on WordPress. That way, you don’t have to type it and hyperlink it every single time.

Privacy Policy

The second legal page you need on your blog is a privacy policy page. A privacy policy page explains to your readers that you collect personal information on your website. It also explains how you use store and share this data.

It explains exactly what type of data you collect, and why you collect it. Who you share this collected data with and why you need to.

Programs like Google Adsense require you to have this page to join their program.

Terms and conditions

Lastly, you need a Terms and Conditions page. A terms a conditions page basically explains the rules and regulations of being on your website.

Your terms and conditions page protects you. It can serve as a legal contract between you and your audience.

Your Terms and Conditions Page should include:

  • Your intellectual property rights
  • An explanation of your site visitors obligations and rights as a viewer
  • Your right to make any changes to your site or to terminate anyone’s usage of your website
