Hello World - First Post on GitHub Pages!

First blog post on GitHub Pages with Jekyll. Contains references on how to get started the way I did and other references as well, e.g. adding to Bing and Google to be crawled. Also, how to add pictures and code (this is for my own reference as well :-) ).


Write-Host "Hello World!" -ForeGround Green


echo "Hello World!"


using System;

namespace HelloWorld
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
            Console.WriteLine("Hello World!");

Hello world from GitHub Gist.

Testing Jekyll Locally

bundle jekyll serve


Following links helped me build/maintain this new blog site:

Webmaster tools from search engines:

Just drop both BingSiteAuth.xml and google<xyz>.html files into your not-compiled site (same folder as your _config.yml) and push into your repository. These files will get into _site folder when compiled by GitHub Pages. To test access to these files just use your browser (they are case sensitive), for my GitHub Pages it will look like this:

  • https://paulomarquesc.github.io/BingSiteAuth.xml
