Is SEO work on previous posts worth it? BKatt 4 1 yearBKatt (28): I am using Yoast... as best I know how at this point. I usually tweak their snippets. I also add a title and description in the WP dashboard below. And I edit the permalink per suggestions in my thread about categories, tags, etc.
Categories, Tags and Description BKatt 17 1 yearRev (5413): While categories do play a role in SEO, especially if you set them to be part of the permalink, they are primarily for helping produce a favorable user experience (UX). From this perspective you generally want one category designated for each post. There will be some exceptions to this "rule" but only when a post clearly and distinctly speaks to 2 or more categories. In that case you might first consider breaking the post up into as...
Must I have a website/domain host? julesthoughts 4 1 yearRev (5413): @julesthoughts I take it from what you said that you have a blog site on That is a great place to start and, for many, a great place to stay. Should you ever decide to move to a self-hosted WordPress site, moving your content is a breeze. As Bill said, you really can't do business from the free WordPress blog site. It's against their rules and just difficult to do. They offer (overpriced) upgrades that will let you add business...

WooCommerce Product tienny 10 2 yearstienny (658): Yeah. I agree not to install too many plugins. My friend introduced me to a potential client. She let me login into her site. She needed help to install div code. Thus I login. I get a shock she has installed too many plugins. She wanted it to be done asap. Thus, her assistant called me up. I highlight I need time to assess before I can do it. I also ask @Rev about it. In the end, I told them I can’t do it asap. Hence, they need to launch it...
Got ideas for Themes for Elementary Kids? Belew 14 2 yearsmorrnel (697): @beleew, I did a quick search of "children's wordpress themes" and found many. However, whichever you choose will eventually need to be customized if you want it unique. Spend time looking at others' themes and create your own using photoshop. All that is really different is the artwork. The fundamental design of all themes are the same. Take the artwork and apply it to the them. Done. Pretty much all I use is canvas and make...

How to move a WordPress blog Natishafost 9 2 yearsRev (5413): @morrnel As free as the air we breath. Some people go a whole life time without making anything of it. Others breath, it seems, nothing but sighs of distain. A few, however, take that air and learn how to fly kites!

And, of course, there are many others.

What a great forum! FreedomSeekers 2 2 yearsRev (5413): @FreedomSeekers It's a good beginning. Having a website is certainly better than not having one. Your posts are topical and informative. You have lots of related images. All of that is good.

Highly Effective Gmail Phishing Technique Belew 3 2 yearsChuckNolan (55): We should have a process to get phony ID information from law enforcement that we can then freely share with morons doing phishing.

If any are interested, I enjoy brain storming about computer security active counter measures, some of which target enemy's hardware. Imagine that when the criminal attempts to use a stolen credit...

http vs https slaqjaw 10 2 yearsDansCartoons (298): Chessie, You may find a web host that offers you free SSL certificate upon signing up with their hosting plan....keep that in mind. It's an incentive that many hosting companies use in order to attract new customers. It sounds unusual for a place to tell you that unless you switch to https a certain aspect of your site won't work.....never heard of that. I use a place called Bulwark Hosting and in fact, my cartoons online are hosted via the...

WordPress Courses for Beginners - the best? Belew 10 3 yearstienny (658): I don't understand how I learn best. I have been trying all method. Along the way, I realize that I learn best 1.

Venturing out into the blogosphere... chrisleffler 18 3 yearscalskinator (28): Just a side note - SEO isn't what most people think it is - and it seems like SEO has become synonymous with "making sure you cross your T's and dot your i's across all your pages." To optimize your site for search, you can skip everything anyone has ever taught over the internet in a $97 package and still dominate. I once dominated my niche for over a decade with more than a million hits a month with only 2 backlinks (angelfire...

Names and brands rcayeras 3 3 yearsrcayeras (439): I assumed name recognition is part of branding.I'm not sure what the rest of it is.I doubt how great a name you choose for your business is the sole reason your business fails or succeeds. The only consideration I can think of - like RTDA - what is your product and when you do a web search with a (potential) business name, what do you find? I found it humorous to see vaping/e-cigarettes dominate youtube. It doesn't dominate web searching for...

I have to agree with Steve that there has to be some automation and that's why I like the Post Twetters that can run on a scehdule. With more than 900 posts, sifting through them manully for re-disribution is not an option.

Open Directory Project (DMOZ) dmortaz 5 4 yearsBelew (11716): What @Rev says. Interestingly 3-word and 4-word keyword PHRASES make up 75% of all search. It's not which word, but which wordS is your target using. Search is 'smart' enough now that the bots can determine by context what words mean what ... usually. Write good stuff that is on target and useful to your target and you'll get found.

How NOT to Build a Member Site jycmba 4 4 yearsjycmba (2653): @Belew - that's a great idea! I hadn't thought of that - it's only a few letter difference for sub-domain but probably so much more effective. @morrnel - we'll see.. it's a MVP based on recent experiences. Who knows what will happen a year or 5 yrs from now? Maybe we'll all finally have flying cars and take regular trips to the moon. :)

Does SEO include WordPress alternative text? rcayeras 5 4 yearsRev (5413): Alternate (alt) text is "fall-back" text designed to display when the image fails to load. It should, therefore, describe what the image portrays. Where the caption might say, "The Bass I Caught Lass Summer" the alt text would be better as, "three fishermen with gear standing on the pier, lake in the background, one holding up s large fish". Most impaired-vision reader apps vocalize the alt text so the site visitor...
