Crazy week, right? It’s been one for the record books for me personally as I’ve been attempting to finalize a Kickstarter campaign and project that has pretty much hijacked my entire life. At some point I’ll have a massive retrospective, but I’m exhausted with only a day or so to go. But naturally there’s been more news than just Kickstarter project – here are some of the things that happened this previous week that you may not have gotten to see. Oh, and by the way, make sure you’re aware of the big super bot that’s attempting to access your […]
Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had a great weekend. I have 30 new plugins to share with you on today’s roundup. That’s right, 30. Lots to take a look at, so check them out after the jump!
SEO is all about making it as easy as possible to for search engine crawlers and the algorithms they feed to figure out what your site is all about and which search terms it should rank for in search engine results pages. WordPress is already fairly good from an SEO perspective out of the box. It’ll mostly take care of issues like creating a decent link and navigation structure without much user intervention, but there are ways to give your WordPress blog or site a helping hand.
Yet another incredibly busy week for us at WP Daily and the rest of the 8BIT team – as much as we hate to admit it, we’re still somewhat recovering from WordCamp Atlanta that finished a few weeks ago – all those calls and meetings and things that we had hoped to get done were pushed back and we’re finally knocking them out, one-by-one. But we’ll get there. I’m sure of it. Without further ado, here’s a look at the past week and some of the stories that we weren’t able to cover explicitly:
The Scribe plugin has enthusiastic user reviews, claiming it has been a solid piece to their SEO puzzle and done near miraculous things for SEO. Scribe promises to increase your traffic without a lot of hassle, and does it in three ways: research, optimization, and connection. Scribe tells you what search engines will see your post as being about. We’ve been using Scribe for three months, and we have seen an increase in traffic. That alone is probably enough to convince some bloggers. There are a few things to consider before laying out the money for this plugin, however.
This past week has been an absolute blur – busyness hit an all-time high today as I had a keynote at a conference early in the morning, my daughter’s soccer game, and 3 back-to-back-to-back birthday parties and then my wife had a girl’s night out while I took care of the kids. Whew. I’m drained. But it’s a “good” type of drained, you know? Hope you’re having a great weekend yourself. With that, here’s your Weekend WordPress Roundup:
The WordPress favorites feature where you can save favorites has been very handy for me. In addition to being a fulltime blogger and photographer, I manage websites for some clients. So I’ve been using favorites to easily add plugins to client websites without having to do a bunch of searching. Here’s how I’m using it and how it’s working for me.
It’s been a relative “light” week as I look back on the past 7 days – although we’ve had a record amount of posts published this past week the other sources of news articles has been relatively small. And when I say “small” I don’t mean small-small as there’s always a lot going on. Just compared to the previous week I suppose. I’m rambling. In anycase, here are some great articles that you may have missed that we didn’t cover – and don’t forget to enter into our BlogDroid Giveaway!
March is quickly approaching and with it come three WordCamps: Atlanta, Copenhagen and San Diego!
The SEO Rapper is seriously one-of-a-kind and the CMS rap is amazing and you know he speaks truth about WordPress! Heck, he even rapped at a WordCamp once! At some point I need to meet this guy in person. A little light entertainment for your Wednesday snooze-fest at work – come on folks, we’re half-way there! More of his quality spittin’ after the jump – I’m digging the Pagerank one especially:
