Subpages work identically to normal pages in most ways, though there are some differences.

Viewing Subpages 

To access your subpages, click on the plus sign next to the page name as shown below.

SubPages

Your subpages will appear with a link to add new subpages. If there are no subpages, all that will appear is the link to add a new subpage.

The number next to your page or subpage is the number of subpages it has.

SubPages

***NOTE*** You can create subpages for subpages as well, the nesting ability is potentially infinite (Though it is not recommended that you do too many layers).

Suggestions 

When creating Page Titles, there are several things you need to keep in mind.

  • The title of the page needs to describe the page. Visitors want to know the purpose of the page they are visiting.
  • Titles need to be short. Essentially, you are trying to describe your page in as few words as possible- one to three, preferably.
  • Make sure you don’t have special characters in your titles- they interfere with search engine optimization (See next section for more information on this).

Some ideas- Home, About Us, Contact Us, News, Calendar.

These are short titles that are good descriptions of what is on the pages. If your titles reflect this mindset, it will improve user experience: which means more people will like and visit your site.

Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

 SEO

Each of these sections does something different but equally important. Title Tag shows the name of a site in search results. Meta Keywords are search keywords in order to help others find your site. Meta Description is the description of a site that you read in search results. All of these things make it easier for potential visitors to find your site.
