Posting using wordpress plugins

 Imagine what you could do if you had the tools to effect real change.

This is a very powerful tool.

Method posting is one of the most powerful techniques that you can create.

Popular guerrilla marketing techniques that relies on blog posting as a great source of traffic and incoming links. While reciprocal links are a necessity if you wish to promote your website and rank high in the search engines, blog posting delivers another important element of search engine optimization – one-way links.

When posting on blogs you are allowed to include a live link in your message.

Of course, this is different from one blog type to another, and some webmasters may have comment moderation turned on, so they will edit-out your links if they are not appropriate.

Blogs are one of the most interesting and dynamic Internet phenomena and they are, as many veteran Internet marketers already know, a constant source of traffic. This is why you should visit as many blogs related to your website topic and comment on the articles and posts they have.

Remember that you can place a link in your post, but don’t overdo it, as you can easily get labeled as a “spammer” if you do so. The one-way links that come from blogs may really boost your search engine rankings, especially since there are plenty of blogs with a high Google PageRank.

How to Get Your Messages Posted on Blogs

Most blog owners are actively managing their blogs and they will instantly delete any message that has even a small resemblance to anything commercial or spam.

Here are a few useful tips on how to promote your website through your blog messages without making your comments sound like a sales pitch:

* Make sure to actually read some of the posts on that blog and create a custom message to suit the context. Don’t go with a template comment as that will quickly backfire and chances are a large majority of your posts will get deleted within days.

* Don’t place a lot of links in your message. One is enough. If the blog allows HTML, make sure to insert a keyword rich description in the link anchor, as that will boost your page rankings even further.

* Add valuable content with your message. You know how important article submissions are and how blog owners are used to posting whole article on their blog. Do the same with your message – don’t post a 2-line message. Instead, create an article-like comment that brings some updated news on a particular topic and then adapt this message to the context of the blog you are posting on.

* It’s a good idea to select 30-40 blogs that have high traffic and excellent search engine rankings and be a constant poster. At first, convince the blog owners that you are not a spammer by posting relevant comments without any links or promotional language. Once you prove to be “one of the team” you can insert some non-intrusive links to your website, which they will produce excellent results!

 

 

knowing your wordpress

So your interested in installing wordpress, but your not an expert well thats ok really because you can learn how to do it in about one hour or less.

Interesting topic, probably ends up in the warrior support forums but contrary to some popular thoughts I will opine at least as a representative of the opposite opinion.

There are a number of very good reasons why you should learn how to download wordpress.

If you ever want to learn about how websites work and how to maintain your website then yes you will have to download and learn how to manually install wordpress.

It really is not that hard to do, yes you will have to learn how to use Cpanel to upload files and to configure wordpress, you will have to learn how to use Cpanel to setup a database, and assign a user id and password to that database.

Again its not that hard to figure out, yes it might require some reading or take advantage of one of the many free videos that are available, you can even head on over to this website and learn it all.

Besides all those very good reasons, there is one reason why you really need to install wordpress manually, it is called the identity factor.

When you use an automated script installer, like others have suggested in this thread you identify yourself to the server as close to a super user account.

LAMP,

Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP

When you use a script identified as a user which has privileges above your access level, which is what your doing when you use one of those automated scripts, you have to do so with an identity that is capable of performing actions that result in the installation of the wordpress script.

So, later lets say you decide to create a membership and you use a complex plugin, which runs on PHP and uses wordpress, you might very well end up with a permission issue because you are no longer using the identity you formally used to install wordpress when you later attempt to make a change or a modification you are now a different identity, you could have some problems.

Now most of the time this is not a problem, but unless your on a dedicated server in which case we would not be having this discussion anyway, you are not running the box, which means that someone could come in and install a permissions based utility then again you might have a problem.

One final thought, of all the wordpress websites that get hacked most of them are installed using an automated script, had two clients that called in this morning saying they had been hacked.

sure enough when asked if they installed manually or not, they did not.

Out of 45 websites this morning the only two that got hacked had been installed using an automated script installer,

I think that really should tell you everything you need to know…

the pattern

Every moment of every day you leave a trail…

Everything leaves something behind…

Even the smallest foot prints can be seen,..

Have you ever walked in the snow on a cold day?

What you see when you look behind you is a pattern of where you have been and what you have done.

      What if everything you do leaves a trail…

If you are missing this image you might be missing something important.

patterns make a different in how your website is developed online

In many ways, the way that modern metrics and website analytic’s, work can make or break your website.

The internet is much the same way, when you update a website, when you add a post, when you link to an image, everything you do leaves a trail to what you have been doing and it is this that can help or hurt your website development efforts.

The DNA of the internet is a fine grained thing, that is layered from within and without.

First you might want to know what the pattern is, well that is anything that leaves a foot print, or a pattern, that can be analyzed, by a computer.

Did you know that just about anything that you do can be attributed to a pattern, including what time of day you post to your blog.

We dont like spiders and snakes, ok sure we get that, but spiders can be your blogs best friend, more so when that spiders name is google, so just in case your not a super geek, here is the word on spiders.

Spiders are little robots, that search the web, and they go up and down and all around, looking for cool webpages, well like this one.   So when they find a nice website, they report back and they go all around the website, like strands on a web, and then it reports back all the pages and links, like a web and what do spiders like best, lots of webpages.

So now you can see a little bit about how spiders work, to find your website and report back to the mother spider, in this case google about what it found when it views your website.

It checks all kinds of things, when the last post was made, what the content was it found, the time of day, the last post was made, yep it gets all kinds of information and it starts developing a pattern after a while it knows just when to check back to your website to see when it expects to find new content.

Yes that are that smart.

So now you know what developing a pattern may be a good and a bad thing, because what if you dont update your website as often as you should well then the spider will not visit your website as often.

That is bad, because if the spider does not come very often to see if your website has new content then your search results will not get into the search engines as often.

The more your website gets updated the more visitors the nice and friendly spider will send you.

You want more and more visitors to your website since without visitors things get old and dusty and well its just not as fun then.

Perhaps you can see how important it is to keep your website updated on a regular basis and why you want to keep the spiders happy.

So what about the pattern, well there are two patterns, one is good the other is bad.

We already discussed the good pattern, you know keeping the spider happy so they send you lots of visitors to your frequently updated webpages.

So lets talk about the bad patterns, that would be patterns that the spiders identify that tells them that your website is not really spider friendly.

here is a list, that we found seems to be good to avoid.

1. not enough updates, webpages are never updated and just sit there.

2. auto blog content,  auto posters that develop patterns, over and over, (spiders hate auto posters)

3. No new content, just the same old content from all over the web, (spiders hate “duplicate” content)

Some people think that auto posters are lazy and in fact they really are lazy, but worse than that, if the spiders figure out that your website is an auto posting website, they will stop coming to your site, or worse they will decide that your website is not worth the trouble of visiting.

Then your in real trouble, because no matter how hard you work on your website, no matter how much money you spend on it, no matter how many ebook you buy and no matter how many Gurus tell you to do this or that it will not matter.

Because you developed the wrong pattern.

See how this works, the problem is that developing the right patterns can be work, you have to actually type words onto your computer to get it on the website.

That is work, We figure that it should be that way, because really there is no free lunch, (someone has to pay) either you pay now or you pay later, we figure its best to develop the good pattern.

Methods of True Success

 What is Success, if you really want it you will first need to understand what
that word means to you…

Being successful is not as simple as you might think, when in high school or even college, we tend to think that if we become wealthy or run a company or design a popular product, that is being successful but there are so many different ways to be successful and some of them do not even involve money at all.How to be successful in life.

Creative Success what is it and how can you develop it for your own reality?

Success is more about doing than talking about doing, anyone can talk about how successful they are but that does not mean that they are truly successful.

Developing the best method for your websites success is often about planning ahead and it is about considering the content and the value of that content to the reader.

When you consider the probability, that you can create success out of thin air, you have to seriously understand that this is not reality. What really happens, in most cases is that what you see presented in online advertising ads is not what you really get.

The definition of the word Method, a way of doing something, especially a systematic way; implies an orderly logical arrangement (usually in steps)

When you think of it, in every situation where a business has been successful, there is always one or more methods that a business employs in its daily operations.

Behind every success story you will find a method, from being on time every time to staying determined in every aspect of your daily regimen, it can really be just that easy, take for instance, in 1974 there were only 16 of the now famous, subway sandwiches, franchises.    They devised a method in order to achieve success, that method became the root growth factor of one of the most successful mid level profit centers in the last 20 years.

They made a decision, to pursue a method of business that proved successful.

Why our method works where others fail, it is always about the method.

It is always about what you know and how you are prepared to work to get what you want.

If you only knew what you could do to develop and gain traffic to your wordpress websites.

Every successful, business has a method even if it is just in how they make french fries, like Mcdonalds, tasty fries.

If you were going to find a better job and move to a larger city so you could provide for your family would you just up and move one day or would you plan on your move, put in applications for a job, sell your home and look for another to rent or buy, sure anyone would right?

The funny thing is that for the most part, people who are attempting to sell something online do not have experience running a business.

Learn about the method that even Successful Internet Marketers do not even know about.

Knowing this is a bold statement, it is not hard to back it up, with the facts.

So called Guru, Marketers are too selfish to learn this method because it requires human Passion and Compassion which sadly they do not possess.

We know this about the Gurus because all they want is to separate you from your money.

We know this about them because if they really wanted you to succeed, they would not try to sell you something that will not work in a millions years, they know it wont work but they still sell you the dream of making millions online.

They are the Dream Merchants.

They have no real life of their own, they have no real product besides the dream, the truth is that without work you will not succeed, sure you can sell your soul like the gurus and end up a miserable wretch, living in a foreign nation where you cannot be extradited.

This is the dream, now learn about the method that you can use to develop real success in your marketing.

One of the most important things you can do for yourself is to forget about the dream that you have been sold.

It does not exist, it is a lie, it is a myth, but that is not the end of the story, no it is merely the beginning.

Perhaps you remember the old paint by numbers drawings, where you followed the steps by the numbers and often you could produce a result that would look nice, perhaps not the best in the world but nice.

Everything thing in life revolves around a method, from the time we are old enough to walk we are learning methods, at first we started out slowly but as we grew up we started to learn how to do thins faster and better.

It is all about the Method…

Did you know that in every thing we do there is a pattern, some call it the study of life, others might call it a type of analytics, but all in all no matter what you do it produces a pattern.

Every pattern can be successful or it could be not so successful.

We have developed a successful method of blogging and SEO blogging, it took months to develop this and we wanted to test it out over and over again so we knew for sure that we could provide our clients with a successful experience in using our products.

In fact, if you follow the “method we provide you with” you will see success, how much success depends on how closely you follow the “method”

How you do what you do, it is a series of decisions that culminate into an event, these events can be predicted if you evaluate them over time.

Do you have a method and more importantly do you follow that method.

The number one mistake made by almost all new bloggers and some older ones too is they do not update their blogs.

This is a huge issue for the beginning blogger as well as just about all blogger’s they just either forget or do not take time to do it, even though it really only takes a little time to do it.

So what is the “Method”

Simply put it is a series of actions that result in a series of reactions.

Taken in its most simple form, Einstein was right every action has an equal and opposite reaction.

If you update your content then you have increased the quality of your website, the more you update and improve your website the more traffic and visitors you will receive.

Simple, yet so few actually follow this practice.

One of the reasons that people fail to spend enough time updating content is that it just takes a long time to do it, for example, when you first start blogging, you will notice that every time you update a post, you end up back at the original post, which means that you have to manually click on posts to get back to the main listing of all posts.

That takes up time, the system is good, but it is just not geared toward someone who wants to update and run.

Then when you want to update a post you have to manually set the date and time of that post.

manually setting the day and time of a post is work

Every time you update a post, you have to manually set the time and day and if your wrong on the time of day your post disappears.

Gone, it makes the spiders mad…

Updating the date is something you want to do because If you do not, then the search engines may not realize that you changed the post, because for the most part spiders, (search engine robots,) look first at the day and time of a post to determine if that post is new or old.

So if you look at it from a spiders point of view why bother with a post if its old.

 

WordPress getting started

One of the most important things you can do for your peace of mind and your business is to correctly install wordpress from the beginning.

What if you got bad advice about building a home on a poor foundation, that would be bad, the same might be said of creating an installation of wordpress on a bad foundation.

Manual installation is the only way to install wordpress that will help you develop your website in the best way possible.

Lately there have been a fair few so called Gurus, out there that are giving out some very bad advice.

They are people who claim to be experts yet they know little or nothing about L.A.M.P

 

I find this not only a diss-service to their customers but an offense to the profession of programming and logic.

The truth is that unless you are the one who is actually installing your wordpress installation and not an automated scripting agent, you are going to have some kind of problem in the future including getting hacked.

I see people all the time telling the same story, help I got hacked, the first thing I ask them is did you manually install this software, and they always say no I used the automated installing script.

There are a number of good reasons why this is not a good idea and

 

It does take a little time to learn how to do it and you may have a little difficulty but the more you do it the easier it will become.

You can learn more about how to correctly install wordpress to reduce your risk in getting hacked by visiting

 

In many ways, life is filled with surprises but when it comes to wordpress it really does not have to be that way at all.

Learning how to install wordpress manually really is the best thing you can do for your sanity.

 

 

 

Web Design Mistakes

 What do you think about designing websites.

Sometimes simple is better…

Do you think that a poorly functional website design can kill your business?

The truth may be Yes Yes it can

bad designs, equals money lost…

It means that you may end up with an ugly website, and even worse, it might not attract any traffic at all, because believe it or not, I have seen some truly ugly websites that actually worked well to attract traffic, but There are plenty of mistakes in the world of web design. Let’s have a look at what some of the top design mistakes that people make every day.

This is the number one biggest mistake that so many people make, it will kill you with the search engines.

1. Too Much Advertising
When you’re trying to make money from your website, it’s all too easy to overwhelm your site with ads. Put yourself in your user’s place and take a good hard look at your site and ask yourself if the ads feel intrusive.

Does the site look like an information source or does it feel more like a page-holder for the ads?

These days, if you advertise your website takes two steps backward.

2. Plugin usage.
You have to keep plugin useage to a maximum of 1 type per page. If you’ve got Flash, then you can’t have a media player, or if you’re using Java, then no Flash. It’s not as bad to use the same plugin twice, however.

So what happens if you over use plug ins, again your rating goes down..

3. Flash in websites.
Please, don’t use a Flash intro on your website. They have been so overused that they’re becoming universally mocked.

4. Unclear Layout and Navigation.
Many websites, especially business sites, suffer from some kind of disease where the very simplest task takes 10 steps. If users are asking you how to do things on your site, then you need to improve your layout and navigation. If there are certain tasks people want to do frequently, put them on the front page.

5. External links, too many…
There are 2 kinds of links: internal (to other parts of your website) and external (to other websites). For the benefit of your users, it’s best if you mark external links, either by making them a different color or using some kind of a symbol (a box with an arrow is the usual one). It’s also good to make the external links open in new windows, so people aren’t leaving your site altogether when they click them.

6. Linking errors.
Some web pages are designed to show links only when people put their mouse over them. While this might make the design look nicer, it is not very user friendly. Instead, use a clearly contrasting color for links, and preferably underline them. This makes them more visible to the user, thus more user friendly.

7.  Email Links.
Always clearly mark a link that will send email (a mailto link) with the word ‘email’. If you turn clicking a name into send email, you’ll annoy users who expected to find out more about the person.

8. Broken Links.
You should check your links regularly to make sure that they all still work. There’s nothing worse than finding a site that looks useful, only to find that it hasn’t been updated in years, so most of the links don’t work. While a website does mostly run itself after a while, that doesn’t mean that you should neglect essential maintenance.

9. Strange Fonts.
Stick to the most common web fonts: that’s pretty much just Arial, Georgia, Tahoma and Verdana. If you use more obscure fonts, then most users won’t have them — and those that do will find your text hard to read. The only place for non-standard fonts is in your logo or headings, and then only if they are displayed as an image.

10. Badly-sized Text.
It’s important to keep your text around the standard size. Making text too big or too small makes it hard to read and annoying for many users. The best thing you can do is use relative text sizing (not pixels) that allows the browser to respect the user’s preferred text size. You should also consider offering buttons on your site to decrease or increase the font size.

 

Advertising on Google?

Google is one of the larger search engines online…

Can you trust that advertising on Google is safe for both parties?

That is a very good question one that allegedly Google would prefer that you not ask.

If Google cannot be trusted to deal honestly with its publishers, how can you as an advertiser expect to be treated any differently…

Think about that for a moment or two.

There are many indications (allegedly) that Google may be playing fast and loose with Publishers…

There are thousands of complaints all over the internet yet Google appears to not care...

If Google is treating the very people that have helped to make google such a success how to you think they will treat your company and your business…

That is something that you should really know the answer to, because you know that if you cannot trust a business partner, how can you rely upon them when the time comes that you need them, will they be there for you or will they have a phone recording that says, sorry, but we have outsourced all our phone support options to other nations, (allegedly) that do not really speak English, but you knew that when you join our program, have a nice day now.

 

The thing you need to know is that if Google allegedly treats its consumers badly, then it will eventually reflect back on your business, that is likely the number one reason why you should make arrangements to X out Google…

Sticky Adz plugin

Get the Sticky Adz WordPress plugin at wordpress.org

This great wordpress plugin will help you develop better advertising using a scrolling “sticky Frame”

Sticky Adz is more than just a method of advertising it is a concept, that correctly used can increase your clicks and revenue.  Advertising is not just a lot of flashy banners or links created to get someone to click something but it is something more than just the “in your face methods” that many have tried to use in the past.

The truth is that most of the time, these methods do not work to produce sustainable revenue.

Advertising is about producing revenue for the advertiser, if Google does not correct this issue then in the very near future the stock values for Google will take a serious tumble into the abyss.

In fact any company that does not provide real world value to an advertiser is eventually going to find that they are no longer the most popular or the most powerful force in search engines mastery, this over confidence in business development can result in a loss of revenue, simply because without a strong consumer base any business will suffer.

This is what sticky Adz is all about, developing the right kind of advertising for the website.

This concept advertising is how you can increase your websites revenue.

Providing the right type of advertising is what your job as a web master or website owner is all about.

Imagine what might happen if you were say a big company and you advertised that you could provide a certain ROI and what ended up happening was that you could not in fact provide that level of ROI, how long do you think it would take before those advertisers would stop advertising on your website?

Not long at all, that is where Google will find itself and in fact any website might find itself if they do not make some serious changes in 2012.

This may be the year that you notice a huge difference in how you do business.

2012 what will you do?

We see so many new changes in 2012, Search Engines, and technology is once again on the edge of making changes in the way that we do business, New programming techniques, new products designed to deliver better more innovative solutions to the website design community and beyond…

WordPress is about to change again and it is really interesting to see what is about to happen…

With the GPL license model showing signs of becoming more unpopular among business and even programmers there may be some interesting new changes in the future.

Plugins, that work directly with the database to produce data centric solutions aimed at increasing productive values.  This production value, is all about doing more work in less time, that is what reposting is all about.
