The Google Chrome browser has an annoying feature called QuickSearch that’s bugged me for years, and I finally got rid of it. When I type WP into Google, I am *not* looking for Wikipedia, I am looking for something related to WordPress.  Whether it’s a plugin, a problem, a hack fix or whatever,  WordPress is […]

*Last updated July 2013* – This post has been several years in the making, because since 2007, as fast as I’ve written things down in the notes, new WordPress plugins keep getting built and I’d have to scratch them out. Sometimes we build plugins we need ourselves, as was the case with my desire to […]

Download from Here  - After importing, go to the settings page to fine tune a little for your site, like adding your site name. Also, you must check the Yoast social area to ensure correct client Facebook and Twitter are used.  One of the things I like most about the WordPress SEO plugin from Yoast is that […]

Almost two years ago at SMX Advanced 2007 I had a short talk with Matt Cutts about the nofollow tag being “okay to use”, and my last statement was something like this: “So there’s really no “over optimization” penalty or anything considered “evil” about manipulating page rank exactly as you wish?

I can’t even begin to count the number of WordPress blogs that I’ve set up personally, much less count how many have been done by various members of our team.

Over the past couple of years, we’ve become quite dependent upon WordPress because of the versatility of this open source management system, allowing us to do nearly anything we can imagine. In many cases WordPress can be a good supplement to existing website, allowing users to easily add and manage search engine friendly content without […]

I’m pulling the trigger on something I haven’t had the guts to do before, but it’s long overdue. After nearly 3 years, I’m changing the permalink structure on my blog, although it’s not for the reasons you might think. Besides search engine visibility, the more realistic answer is simple “user-friendliness”. People really aren’t that much […]

I came across a WordPress plug-in called FAQ-Tastic , which allows users to submit questions to your website, and I’ve added it here. You can create categories of questions, and even have different forms for people to ask questions about different subjects, with no apparent limit. Upon submitting those questions, they receive an e-mail with […]

People engaged in serious online marketing have long been taking advantage of WordPress as a nearly perfect website platform to build and maintain websites for some time now.  Combined with cutting edge SEO plugins, it’s unstoppable, in my opinion.
