How to Optimize WordPress

How to Optimize WordPress

Writing blogs has become an excellent means of expressing views, opinions, policies and statements. Whether it is for personal use or professional purposes, a blog is an interactive medium that allows for extensive communication between the author and the audience. WordPress is one of the most popular tools for writing and maintaining a blog and its easy-to-use style has led to a rise in the number of people using the program. In this article we give you advice on how to optimize WordPress so as to make the maximum amount of profit from your blog. The instructions herein are aimed to guide you on essential matters such as preventing spam, raising the standard of quality of your blog or website both in terms of aesthetics and functionality as well as ways in which you can gain an edge over the competition when it comes to search engine optimization.

Preventing any spam infiltration should be one of your priorities. Using WordPress allows you to make use of a number of fascinating plug-ins and exciting applications. However, owing to the masses of options available, the risk of entry of spam into your system too is increased manifold. Using WordPress often involves a function wherein users to your blog have to respond to a series of questions in order to be able to gain approval to leave any response or information on your webpage. Even though this service comes in use to be able to differentiate between varieties of audiences, many visitors to a website get discouraged by the prospect of having to fill out forms. It is a better idea to use the services of the plug-in Askimed which comes with WordPress and allows you rate posts as spam and allows other viewers to the website to check your rating

Next most important step is to title your posts in an attractive and eye-catching way. Search engines pick up posts that have the most appropriate posts regarding a specific category. Keyword density is important when choosing a title for the post as it will increase your chances of receiving a good ranking in a frequently used search engine, thus directing an increased amount of traffic to your publications.

It is better not to add dates to the title as visitors tend to stay away from posts they feel have lost their relevance in the present context. If your content has an enduring appeal that can prove to be useful even after months of publication, it is best not to add timelines to the heading as viewers browsing through search engine listings will get discouraged and will believe your post to be ‘dated’ and will pass by it without checking it.

Keywords form the backbone of the entire structure of the article and hence it is imperative that you pepper them throughout the article and not just in the title. As the first paragraph is undoubtedly the most important as it can either make or break the impression on the audience and also is the most significant in determining your search engine listing, it is important to use the keywords in the first sentence and once or twice through the rest of the first paragraph.

3 Tips To Choose The Best WordPress Hosting Provider

WordPress as we all know is a blogging platform. This will allow you to create blogs of your own and also you have the option of putting up your information on the Web using WordPress Hosting service.  We will give you tips to choose the best wordpress web host or provider. Please consider BounceWeb’s Award Winning web hosting.

There are 2 types of WordPress blogging. The first type is that you can host the blogs for free in WordPress.com. This will work out to be great if you just want to share the information along with friends and family or simply within your circle. This free blogging service has however certain limitations tagged along with it.

So if you are very much serious about communicating with a blog, then you have to create your own blog on your own domain. In order to create your own blog, you will need software and also a WordPress Hosting service. Therefore, in order select and opt for the most appropriate WordPress host, you should take certain things into account. These three tips will help you making the right choice:

First: If you have chosen the WordPress host after doing your homework well, installing it is not much of an effort. As a matter of fact, Word Press can be easily installed. A good hosting provider will let you access to something called “Fantastico” via cpanel or control panel. The main use of Fantastico is that, it will enable you to install the Word Press software easily without much of an effort. Or else, it can really get problematic to install. If your host does not supply these things, then stay away from the host. BounceWeb has Fantastico on all our plans.

Second: A WordPress which is standard will take around 5 to 6 MB of disk space. This disk space does not seem anything great in this modern day and if your host doesn’t offer this much space, then you will be seriously wasting your time and money. Therefore, it is quite imperative that you seriously consider working with the most appropriate and sensible host. However you may need more space as well.

For example, if you want to host images, music files or even videos, then you will certainly need more space. As you move on with the WordPress, you will get to know more about it. Gradually you will discover that there are many ways to enhance and improve it and also write lots of contents.  Therefore, it becomes quite important for you to consider the space of approximately 100 MB in order to allow you to have room for further maneuver.

Thirdly: If at all your blog becomes famous and more people start visiting, then your bandwidth will surely begin to creep up. There are numerous hosting providers who will be ready to work on the monthly basis allowance of bandwidth. You should not have any kind of problems to start up with this kind of structure or tie up. Audio, video and even E-mail, all require the bandwidth hogs. You should make sure that you are working with atleast ten times more space than what is your actual bandwidth allowance. If you are working less than this, you could be in trouble and you have to wait until the next month’s allowance. As a result, till the time you have the availability of the next month’s bandwidth allowance, your blog will be shut down. In order to summarize, ensure that you have more than adequate coverage from the first day itself and then you can be rest assured that you will have a long and successful career as the owner of blog with WordPress Hosting.

 BounceWeb meets all these requirements, and would be happy to host your website.


Automatically fill your website with Joomla and RSS

March 11th, 2009 | Posted under The Internet, Web Hosting Tips | No Comments »

Ever heard of the phrase: biting off more than you can chew? Well it’s a very natural habit of people to think that they are some sort of superhuman beings that can do just about anything in little time. This certainly applies to people who are thinking about starting their own website with daily content.

Oh wow, daily content, really? So how are you going to do that, just by yourself? “Yes, it’s no biggie, just one article a day, how much work can that be?” At first, these people seem to be right, and they manage to come up with one article a day. But then it gets really old really fast. When the newness wears off, things that started out as fun, become work really quickly. And when that work doesn’t pay, because you started it for fun, one article a day can suddenly be a huge task, which ultimately results in a website that has one year old content.

I’m not saying that you shouldn’t build a website if you like to inform people about a certain topic, but you should think about if it’s really necessary for you to create all that content. You’ve probably heard of RSS, the system that helps people spread their content easily. We’ve also told you a lot about Joomla. But did you know that you can combine the two? At www.joomla.org you can download a component called feed2post. Its not free, you’ll have to pay 25 buckaroos for it, but trust me, it’s totally, utterly worth it.

You install it the Joomla Administrator area, and simply define what RSS feed you want to use (if you want to find nice ones check out http://www.google.com/reader to search for cool feeds.) You enter those feeds into the Feed2Post component, decide what feed needs to go in what category, and you’re done. Your website will be filled with other people’s content (don’t forget to link to them, you don’t want to steal and end up next to O.J. in prison.) and if you feel like it, you can add your own. It’s easy, and it keeps your website from becoming the stressful thing you call your job (you have your real job for that).


5 Best template sites

March 11th, 2009 | Posted under The Internet, Web Hosting Tips | No Comments »

If you’re not much of a builder, but also not much of a designer, you’re in luck. Because not only can you download and install a CMS like Joomla or WordPress, you can also download a very nice template for it, so that you can have a functional website that also looks good. Sometimes they’re free; sometimes you have to pay over a hundred dollars. Keep in mind that paid ones are not better by default; they’re just made by more commercial people. You can find templates on the following sites.

OSSkins
www.osskins.com
OSSkins is a very large website that has templates for open-source platforms like Drupal, Joomla and WordPress. You can buy some of them for a fixed price, others require a membership. And if you don’t want to pay, just click the free section, they’re also very nice.

RocketTheme
www.rockettheme.com
These guys are in one word: brilliant. I have to admit, you pay a lot for it, you have to get a subscription, but these guys don’t just design templates, they design little miracles. And don’t worry about uploading and configuring a template. Just download a complete Joomla package including the template, and install the whole thing at once.

ThemeLayout
www.themelayout.com
A very good looking website with a very clear interface. The themes that are meant for WordPress and Joomla look very nice and very professional, but sadly they know how to charge you for it. You can get them cheap through a subscription, but if you want to buy it exclusively, you pay between 600 and 1200 dollars.

MamboHut
www.mambohut.com
Don’t let the name confuse you. Yes they have templates for Mambo, but they also have a lot of templates for Joomla. And whey I say a lot, I mean a LOT. Also nice is the fact that they have a lot of administrator templates that will make the admin part a little nicer. One of the oldest template sites around.

Template Monster
www.templatemonster.com
Without a doubt the biggest template website out there. They have templates for just about any kind of open-source platform, and they have a great way of presenting them. It’s a very commercial site though, so prepare to grab your wallet.


5 best open source CMS systems

March 4th, 2009 | Posted under The Internet, Web Hosting Tips | No Comments »

There are a lot of open source content management systems out there that will really help you build a good website. The problem is that they all have different qualities, and if you don’t know what to choose, you might just make the wrong decision. Although it’s not like you’re spending a lot of money on the software, it’s open-source. You will spend a lot of time on it though and it would be a shame to discover that you have made a mistake when your site is almost done. Let me help you on the way.

Joomla
www.joomla.org

Joomla is a CMS that you’ve heard me talk about a couple of times in these articles. Not because I’m a fan of Joomla (because I don’t like the idea of the whole world being run by one CMS, way too vulnerable), but because it’s so incredibly powerful and easy to use. There are a lot of good extensions, some cost money, some don’t. Joomla will surely make you a good website if you’re going to have a lot of content and you want to do more with it than just display it.

Mambo
www.mambo-foundation.org

Mambo can be considered Joomla’s bigger brother. Well actually, maybe more of a father. A group of developers who didn’t like the way things were going at Mambo headquarters, left, and started their own CMS, called Joomla. Both are still being developed and are very much alike, however Joomla has a bigger user base.

WordPress
www.wordpress.org

This is another very powerful CMS that you’ve heard me talking about. It is very often mistaken with a simple blogging tool, because it’s also a blogging service. Yes, you can use it as a blogging platform, but it’s way more powerful, if you know how to configure it well. Lot’s of extensions, some free, some not.

Typo3
www.typo3.com

Probably the most flexible and powerful open-source content management system there is. Nice, but the problem is that it’s also a lot harder to install and a lot harder to configure. If you know what you’re doing, it’s a very nice CMS. But if you need an open-source CMS because you have no programming skills, steer far from it.

PHP-Nuke
www.phpnuke.org

A brilliant CMS if your focus is going to be on news delivery. It’s very easy to install, very easy to use, but not the easiest CMS to customize. If you’re happy with a nice template and standard functionality, go for this one, it will make you happy.


So you want to get blogging huh? We can do that!

February 20th, 2009 | Posted under The Internet | No Comments »

First you’re going to need a platform to run it on. There are tons of them out there (most of the cool ones are even free) but for this article we are going to talk about WordPress. Now WordPress does come in 2 different versions, a hosted version at wordpress.com and an open source version that you host on your own server.

Since you are here it usually means you have your own hosted account (if not then quite looking at my article and get signed up) and how lucky you are it has Cpanel, which it turn means you have Fantastico. Fantastico is script library that automates the installation of web applications such as WordPress.

  1. So log into your Cpanel account, click on the Fantastico link under software and services section.
  2. Then look under blogs section right under “Navigation”.
  3. Next click on the WordPress link.
  4. Then new installation (if you already have one installed then it will list them below).
  5. Then you will need to pick a directory to put it in, the software will automatically set up the directory you list so it must not already exist. In this example I set it to “blog”, so my address would be mywebaddress.com/blog
  6. Then choose your administrator log in name and password, this information will be used as your log in.
  7. Then choose a nickname, this will be used as the posts author name.
  8. Input your correct email address, this will be used to send you important emails about your blog.
  9. 9. Next you will type in your blog title; this will be displayed in the browser bar as the blogs title.
  10. Last you will input your description, depending on the theme you use in the blog this can sometimes be used as the tag line.
  11. Then click on install WordPress, you will be taken to the next screen that shows you the specifics off where your blog is located, if you like the settings click finish installation (you need to click this or it will not install).
  12. Then… Ta da! You are now ready to tell the world hello! Copy down your information they give you so you know where to go to do things (log in or just visit) and click on the /wp-admin link to log in to the admin panel of the blog.
