The Free WordPress Installation Service Just Got Better

The response to my free WordPress installation service has been overwhelmingly positive and is the talk of the Blogosphere. Even WordPress founder, Matt Mullenweg, noticed. I know this because Matt emailed me to recommend some more plugins I should include with the service. Hey, if Matt says to add these plugins, I’m not going to argue! So, all WordPress installations will include the following plugins installed for free.

  • All In One SEO
  • Google Sitemap
  • W3 Total Cache
  • Show Top Commentators
  • WordPress.com Stats
  • Akismet
  • After The Deadline

All In One SEO for WordPress will help your blog rank higher with the search engines. Google Sitemap will help get your blog pages indexed quickly on Google. W3 Total Cache will make your blog load a lot faster and handle more traffic. Show Top Commentators encourages readers to comment. WordPress.com Stats will let you know who is visiting your blog. Akismet kills off the comment spam and After The Deadline will proof read your blog post for grammar and spelling. These are some of the best WordPress plugins available and they’re included free with the WordPress installation service.

Add Thesis Theme To Your Installation

My blog is powered by the Thesis Framework theme. This is a highly customizable theme that allows people without design or coding skills to easily change the look and feel of their blog. It is also the most SEO friendly theme available. If you choose to have Thesis installed, All In One SEO will removed. You won’t need it since Thesis has even better SEO features.

To add Thesis to your free WordPress installation, order the theme at DIY Themes, then forward the email they send to you and I’ll install Thesis for you at the same time as WordPress.

WordPress Installation Sponsored By HostGator

This program is being sponsored by HostGator. They are my official web host and host all my blogs. They are the ones paying me to do this. If you were to pay someone to install WordPress, Thesis and the seven plugins for you, it would cost you over $100.

To get the free WordPress installation service, all you have to do is order a web hosting plan from HostGator. Then forward me the login information to johnchow [at] johnchow.com and I’ll install WordPress for you. Afterwards, I’ll email you back the login information for your new WordPress blog and you can start blogging!

I will also include instructions on how to change all your login passwords. I will not keep any of the forwarded information from HostGator. Once WordPress has been set up, I will destroy the email.

Get Your First Month for 1 Cent

HostGator Hosting Plans

Word class web hosting doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg. HostGator WordPress hosting plans start as low as $4.95 per month. However, I have a coupon code that will give you the first month hosting for only 1 cent.

Simply order the plan of your choice and enter coupon code JohnChowRocks into the coupon field at checkout. This will reduce the first month price of the hatching and baby plan to 1 cent and the business plan to $5. I recommend you go for the baby plan as a minimum because it will allow you to host as many domains as you want.

Not only will you get your first month for a penny but every hosting plan at HostGator comes with $100 of Google AdWords credit that you can use to promote your new blog. Spend 1 cent to get your blog up, get WordPress and plugins installed for free and get $100 of AdWords credit. You won’t find a better web hosting deal anywhere!

If you’re ready to start blogging right now, and I mean RIGHT NOW, then head over to HostGator, order your hosting plan and I’ll get you started.

    Hey John, this is a smart idea and I hope many benefit from the free service

    1. Nick says:

      I agree, some people dont know the answers because they dont know the questions. These will most def help out. Thanks.

      1. Abhik says:

        Its always better to get expert help even if you already know the answer.

        1. Hi Abhik,

          If you are sure you know the answer what do you need the expert help for? I would agree that if you can get the expert do the work for you it is better. if you are happy to pay him for it.

    2. dotCOMreport says:

      Apparently, many are already benefiting from it. Keep up the good work John.

    3. Travis says:

      I completely agree. This is great and encourages new bloggers to start up and get out there on the web. I hope this drives a lot of new people to the blog scene!

      1. There are already millions joining every day. This post will hardly make a dent in the number of blogs out there.

    4. Been using All In One SEO for ages and I think I recommended it on your last post.

      1. Abhik says:

        I’d suggest Platinum SEO over All In One SEO.

      2. ikki says:

        its all in two post haha

    5. d3so says:

      Definitely a neat service since it’s free. But I think it’s worth it to go through the trouble of learning how to install it manually so you’ll have knowledge when it comes to installing other scripts.

    6. ikki says:

      im agree with you, this is a smart idea

  2. Fairooz says:

    Wow! John, This program is just awesome! Now there’s no problems like installing, setting up database etc. . . Newbies can just start blogging right away!

    1. Fairooz says:

      By the way John, is it required to order HostGator via your link ?

      1. Enstine Muki says:

        Fairooz, you didn’t get the idea behind it

        1. well, i got the basic idea behind it! HostGator wants more customers, and they pay John for this service! πŸ˜€

          1. That’s right Fairooz,

            so you didn’t need to ask did you? John is great at helping people but he has to make money too.

      2. John.s link is the life blood of this campaign.

        Though I am sure awebar is also an important part.

        1. Yeh, he talks a lot about aweber overall on this website. I’m planning on purchasing an account on hostgator soon, but I don’t need his service. But I can use his link as a “thank you” for providing all the great content on his website. πŸ˜›

          I’m just a bit curious, if Chow is making money from so many different sources, won’t it get difficult to handle everything? I don’t know how many income streams he has, but it’s gotta be more than 7.

          1. Handling income is not a big issue.

            He can use many software to track all it. Few hours once in a week will be good enough to keep an eye on all incomes.

          2. Make Money Online,

            I hope you do use John’s link as a way of thanking him. Please do it now that you kind of promised it. Nobody likes a lip service.

            John obviously cannot do everything himself. He knows where to get help.

          3. d3so says:

            Yeah, john is aggressively pushing aweber and hostgator to his readers. I wonder how much he’s made so far.

      3. Yea, I imagine you have to use Host Gator, that the way these deals work.

  3. wooo hoooo so many important things in one installation. simply great.

    Long way to go.

    1. Abhik says:

      Two more plugins added since last announcement.. Courtesy to Matt πŸ™‚

  4. John i have one question …

    Any thoughtw on after sales service ? Or any kind of support after few months …if any problem arise ?

    1. ZK,

      You must be kidding. After doing all that, after sales service? Besides, he’s not selling anything, didn’t you notice that? It says it right ast the top of the page in the headline.

  5. This is really awesome man. You are offering a whole bunch of services mostly for free. Simply great.

    1. Abhik says:

      Mostly free!!?? It’s free buddy..

    2. ikki says:

      freeware is the best

  6. Dino Vedo says:

    People should learn how to install a blog themselves.. if they cant do that then they will not make any money at all ever and should just quit… πŸ™‚

    1. I am not agree with you.

      After this you will also say that people should also know coding and also know plugin creation.

      You simply know your niche and know how to write about that.

      1. Installing a blog isn’t that difficult. Really, if you can’t do that it’s going to be a lot harder to make affiliate marketing work.

        1. Paul B says:

          Hostgator have 1 click install as well, it literally takes less than 30 seconds. My mum has managed it.

          1. PPC Ian says:

            I agree and also disagree. Everyone has to start somewhere, but this is a skill any blogger will want to pick up. The worst thing is to think about blogging and then never take action. John is making it easier for people to take action.

        2. Clay Burt says:

          True, but just getting started for some people is the key and if a technical task, albeit a simple one, is what is stopping them then this service is invaluable.

        3. Agreed. Installing a blog is the easiest thing out of all of this.

        4. ikki says:

          im agree with you,

    2. Kerri says:

      SO glad John decided not to take responsibility for what people do or don’t do with his offer. Thanks, John!

  7. Great service John, Luckily I already have most of those plug-ins just need to keep blogging now and be patient. Thanks for the info

  8. This is a great idea

    thumbs up!

  9. Nice offer. I do not really need it though. But I will look further in to the top commentor plugin because it seems like a nice thing to have on the website. =)

    1. yes if you want to get more and more comments and also wants to have proper communication with your visitors than you do need this plugin.

      1. Yeh, I just found it and I will probably install it within a week. I figured that it would create more of a “competition” in getting listed on the top commentors. However, I do not think it will result in a lot more comments right now, but when I get a higher pagerank it will for sure help. =)

        Have a great day!
        //Alexander.

  10. Jeff says:

    An example of marketing guruness.

  11. GTA 5 says:

    Hi John! Thanks for sharing this great program, it makes the life easier : no problems like installing, database… anymore! It is a very good news for newbies in blogging πŸ˜€

  12. so John how many blogs you have installed so far ?

    Would love to know that.

    1. Probably hundreds. Most media gurus have tons of blogs.

      1. Hey Penny Bid Auction Sites,

        I think that ZK is asking John how many blogs he’s installed for people since offering this deal.

        As for John having tons of blogs himself I don’t think that is the case.

  13. fas says:

    This is affiliate marketing to the next level.

      1. It is being very smart and helping people while making money at the same time.

        The perfect way to provide a service that is mutually beneficial for all the parties involved.

  14. Hey John I’d recommend WordPress SEO by Yoast over the All In One SEO plugin. A cool feature of that one is that you can see what exactly what your listing in Google will look like, as well as ensuring that you are putting your target keyword in all the right places in your post. Very cool, and free.

    1. d3so says:

      Pretty interesting. I use All in one as well. Is the other plugin free as well?

  15. This is one of the best service available on the net

    I loved it seriously

    Thanks

  16. I have used several different hosting companies in the past. One of my favorites that I nearly swore by for years has become increasingly difficult to deal with. On the other hand Host gator has started turning things up a notch and their service has become much better recently. At the moment I am in the process of moving everything over to them. Hope they can avoid the problems my old hosting company is dealing with now.

  17. Ben says:

    This should help out a lot of people. Good stuff

  18. Travis says:

    This is an excellent way to get more people to blog. Good work John, I hope these offers encourage more people to join the online community!

  19. Gyanguru says:

    Good option to go with…

  20. PPC Ian says:

    Awesome stuff, John! Congrats on your success. This is a really great strategy to get people to dignity up for HostGator with your affiliate link. You’re adding a ton of value for free and I don’t know why someone wouldn’t use your link. (I did even before this promotion.)

    1. d3so says:

      I hope hostgator will have better deals later this year when I transfer to them.

  21. This is great for wordpress and its users.Thanks for letting us know John.Have a great day

  22. Kirk Taylor says:

    I’ll have to add some plugins to my WordPress project. Thanks for including the references to the additional plugins.

    1. @Kirk, yep yep, I had a few already in my bag and John just revealed some other great ones in this post. Thanks a lot!

  23. Abhik says:

    Thanks John..
    This is going to be helpful for people who just being started.

      1. Abhik says:

        Well, I don’t need it atm.
        My blogs are already established and doing good.

        I use all the plugin John mentions except the last one and Platinum SEO instead of All In One SEO.

  24. Abhik says:

    John, how many people signed for it so far?

    1. @Abhik, not sure about that but I guess it should be pretty popular.

    2. Hey Abhik,

      This question is very likely going to go unanswered and so it should. Pretty soon people would ask John the very details of his life if he’d answered questions like yours.

      Use your imagination, take a guess.

  25. Neon SRT4 says:

    I think, that there are lot many people signed up with the service.

  26. Devon Brown says:

    I only recommend WordPress blogs, and all of those plugins too. I think it’s the software of the century. Nothing gets you online faster (except for WCC of course! LOL)

  27. I noticed that you recommend the plugin :. All In One SEO.

    Since I recently loaded the Thesis Theme Framework (per your suggestion) onto my blog, as I understand it the said plugin isn’t necessary as Thesis already has a better SEO management inside the framework. And it will reduce the amount of plugins which I assume will speed up my blog.

    Do I really need All In One SEO if I have the Thesis Theme Framework installed?

    1. John Chow says:

      If you are running Thesis, you can remove All In One SEO.

      1. Hey Matt,

        That’s a very sharp observation. I wish more people would really pay attention like you.

        I’ll be checking your blog. You got my attention.

        Hey John,

        Does the Thesis theme do only the function of the All in One SEO plugin or does it also do what some other plugins do?

  28. Eric Tan says:

    Just sent my email. Thanks for the free service.

  29. d3so says:

    I have to disagree that thesis isn’t easy to customize if you have little coding experience.

    1. yeah, john has admitted himself that he isn’t a coding expert. You do not need to be a coding genius to work well with most of the premium or even less popular WordPress themes.

  30. Lazynerd says:

    I installed wordpress.com stats but its not working on my site
    its telling me this:
    WordPress.com Stats needs attention: please enter an API key or disable the plugin.

    Enter your WordPress.com API key to link this blog to your WordPress.com account. Be sure to use your own API key! Using any other key will lock you out of your stats. (Get your key here.)

    every time I press on the “get your key here” they send me to page where I need to sign in and after I sign in with my user name and password that use for my blog it doesn’t work

    I dont know what to do if anyone could help me I would massively appreciate it

    1. John Chow says:

      It’s asking you to log into your WordPress.com account. Have you set up a WordPress.com account? If not, then you will need to set one up. Then you can get your API key.

  31. I have been told that head space to is a better SEO plug-in than all in one SEO what do you think. If I use Thesis Framework theme does that mean I don’t have to use all in one or head space.

  32. Thanks for this article. Another helpful article from you again John

  33. There is a plethora of SEO tools available and I would recommend that you match the tool to your particular campaign strategies. Additionally, the theme you choose will work better with some SEO tools and not others. Let the strategies of your campaign help you choose the right ones.

  34. CRAIG WHITE says:

    John,
    I have thesis but still using Platinum SEO. I have also looked at WordPress SEO by yoast.
    Is the Thesis SEO better than both?

    thanks
    craig

    1. Neon SRT4 says:

      I really do not think, it is better than both. But still i love Thesis Seo.

  35. ibnujusup says:

    even Matt Mullenweg, email u…
    you are one big name john… you have reached really fa.r. πŸ™‚

  36. christina says:

    Thanks for the guidance of wordpress installation

    i want to ask one question to you john , where you are getting these updates.
