If you get this book, you'll quickly learn how to put up a WordPress site or blog for free, or for the small cost of a template. Matt Wolfe gives specific step-by-step instructions on how to do that, and how to do much more. He goes into detail on how to add a customer header to your site, which plugins to use and why, how to install these plugins, how to get traffic to your site, how to make money with it and more.

My only complaint is that the template section is confusing. He tells you which template sites he recommends. Then he mentions a few specific templates he recommends for certain types of sites. But he doesn't tell you which template site each specific template is on. I was surprised by this, since one of the major strengths of this book is that he gives so many simple, straightforward, step-by-step instructions.

And I should add that in that template section, he gives excellent instructions on how to install a template once you've found one you like.

To be fair, it's hard to find a good template that's just right for your business, and he says that himself. But I do hope he'll clarify that section in a future edition. I do feel that finding a good template is a big subject in itself though, and I recommend to business owners that they hire a web designer, because I've never found a template (outside of Site Build It) that looks professional enough for a business owner. Most templates I see are too loud and busy. Even if you do hire a web designer, though, you need to have control of your site. Hire a designer who creates WordPress sites/blogs, and use this book to make the most of that site.

I feel stingy giving this book only four stars. Other than that one complaint, this is a great book. For $4.99, it's a huge bargain.

This book contains minimal useful information regarding how to build a WordPress website. The instructional portion of the book is only 82 pages which are 5.5 x 9 inches in size with a total of 1.5 inch side margins and 2 inch total top and bottom margins. The type is double spaced. The instructional portion covering how to build a website is 44 pages. There are 10 pages about the author himself, more than 10% of the instructional portion. There are 32 pages of opinion from professional WordPress users which is organized primarily by the headers "What do you use WordPress for?", "What plugins are essential?", "What's your favorite way to monetize a WordPress site?," and "What is your best piece of advice." This last question is answered with advice such as "don't get overwhelmed, "you are in control," and "don't worry about getting everything perfect," and "you'll need people to help you get to the next level, keep networking." Nine pages of this section includes one professional's story regarding getting into blogging (6 pages), the optimal schedule for making blog posts, and how to come up with ideas for new blog content.

The little bit of useful information regarding building a website is not particularly helpful. The subject is either so basic that it is self-explanatory or is easily found while using WordPress, or the subject is more complex and glossed over. The computer screen pictures used for illustration are in large part unreadable due to the poor quality and small text size. The instructional section is also organized in a sporadic fashion. For example, "how do I add videos" is immediately followed in the same chapter by "how do I make sure I have ideas to write about.

As a full-time internet marketing and web designer for the last 10 years, I am very experienced with setting up websites. I use Wordpress for all of my sites and for my clients, and I consider myself an advanced Wordpress user. But when I need help with Wordpress, the only person I turn to is Matt Wolfe.

In "Wordpress Revealed", Matt breaks down the exact steps for setting up a website using Wordpress and setting it up so your site will actually work for you.

If you want a site set up quickly and you want to learn how to set it up in such a way that you can start making money, getting visitors to your site, and converting those into leads or sales, you should invest in this book.

The book is aimed towards people who haven't had a lot of experience with Wordpress, but even if you're a full time web designer you will still find value from this book. The traffic tips, content strategies, and interviews are more than worth spending the time to read through this book.

This is the book I think everyone interested in making money online should read. Wordpress is the way to go, and this book will teach you how to get it done.

I was delighted to see that Matt Wolfe has come out with a book on WordPress. I believe that he has more knowledge on this subject than anyone I know!

In this book he leaves absolutely no stone unturned. And yet, I never felt bogged down in details or left confused. It is clearly written and covers absolutely everything about setting up a WordPress blog -- the right way! He takes the reader through setting up a WordPress blog, logging in, writing blog posts that are engaging, using tags and categories, plugins and widgets, themes...there is just so much packed into this book!

In addition, Matt talks about how to monetize the blog and get traffic. So many books leave this out, or just allude to it. Matt goes into great detail, again taking the reader by the hand, so that it is easy to digest and implement. He has been there -- he knows! His information is accurate, current and it works!

I have been creating blogs for several years and yet I got so much out of this book! It is truly ideal for both the beginner and the advanced WordPress user.

I highly recommend!
