65% of the websites in Spain are created with WordPress

I am pleased to share the new WordPress usage statistics which already shows, among other things, that 30% of the world's websites are made with WordPress that's nothing.

Using WordPress in the world

Around the world wide, according to BuiltWith statistics WordPress is behind 30% of the websites and that does not include the WordPress.com sites, which would add a few points to this graph.

30% of the websites in the world are created with #WordPress Click to tweet

The next open source CMS in the ranking is Drupal, with 7% implementation, followed by Joomla far, with a poor 1%.

WordPress is still the king of the CMS and uploading.

Use of WordPress in Spain

Regarding the statistics of use d e WordPress in Spain the impact is even greater, since 40% of the websites in Spain are created with WordPress in its latest version .

And that's not surprising, because if we add to the figure the percentage of implementation of WordPress in other versions (4.7 and earlier), the implementation of WordPress in Spain up to 65% in our country.

65% of websites in Spain are created with #WordPress Click to tweet

Use of WooCommerce in the world

Regarding the use of the main plugin for creating online stores for WordPress , WooCommerce, its worldwide implantation is of no less than 41% .

41% of the online stores in the world are created with #WooCommerce Clic para tweet

Far behind are Shopify (6%) and Magento (4%).

Note : There is no WooCommerce usage statistics by country, as the BuiltWith team explained to me after contacting them to ask about it, it was practically impossible to discriminate the versions and installations, so you will not find it in the statistics by country, something that, in passing, it clearly blurs the result of the other systems.

Pop-up window after adding products to the cart in WooCommerce • WordPress Help

One of the most effective ways of not losing profits by abandoned carts in WooCommerce is to add a pop-up window when a customer adds a product to the cart .

What is achieved with this system is fully channel the sale direct the sales funnel totally towards the payment or wherever you want to adjust it.

To do this the best system is the fantastic and indispensable plugin YITH WooCommerce Added to Cart Popup an authentic jewel, vital in any online store e-commerce

Can not do something similar without plugins?

Well, no, WooCommerce the only options it offers are to use AJAX to add to the cart, which prevents full page reload when adding a product to the cart from the page of l to store.

And, if you prefer, go directly to the cart after adding a product and trust that cross sales allow you to increase the sale or decide your customer to pay directly.

The other option, with trick, of channel your sales funnel is direct directly to the payment when adding to cart , but this would be rather for single product stores or expensive products.

How to display a popup after adding to the cart

The best thing I found is the plugin Added to Cart YITH Popup in which, once installed, you can configure all the elements and visual and operational settings of the pop-up window .

Also there is a free version of the same plug n, limited to only show buttons of View cart and Follow buying, without the option to go directly to the payment (the most important), and which lacks many personalization options, so I do not recommend it, except for testing.

On its settings page, entirely in Spanish, first is to configure the general settings, among which the following stand out:

  • Animation type of the pop-up window (enlarge, rotate, slide, fade)
  • Where will the pop-up window (store , only product page, both)
  • If to show only product added or all cart
  • Thumbnail of product and settings thereof
  • If show variations in ] variable products
  • If show totals of cart, shipping costs and taxes or not
  • What buttons show and how (see shopping cart, keep buying, pay )
  • If allow in mobiles ( Important)

In addition, you can also display suggested products, choosing from related, cross-selling, targeted sales or even products to choose for yourself, as you order.

You also have a page of style settings, where you specify all text styles, buttons and the same window.

And, finally, two more windows of settings where you specify products or categories of products in which the pop-up window will not activate.

This is useful if you have special products, which require another treatment of the sales funnel, such as going to the payment directly, for example.

The pop-up in action

At the end of the day, what matters is how the pop-up behaves and if it really channels your buyers and gets more sales, right? [1 9459011]

And that is the beauty and potential of this alternative system to add to the shopping cart in a pop-up window for WooCommerce, which allows you to direct your buyers in an efficient and personalized way towards those actions you want in your online store

It is practically impossible for a buyer to ignore the window and follow its indications, reducing the cart abandonment rate in a high percentage.

I have performed tests in several customer stores and the difference between using the plugin or maintaining the original WooCommerce system is brutal, in favor of the pop-up window of course in addition to the sense of professionalism you transmit in your online store.

You get several important advantages that result in improvement of the conversion rate of your store :

  • There is no doubt that the product has been added to the cart, something not always obvious with the screens of WooCommerce .
  • You decide, with the buttons, where to direct your client after adding the product, either to the cart, to continue buying or directly to the payment, thus controlling completely the sales funnel .
  • Allows you to facilitate the cart increase through the suggested products which can also have a quick add button to the cart.
  • You can fully control the products suggested to increase your sales you can choose between random products, your cross-selling products or targeted sales, or even specific products that you want to promote your sale.
  • If you add an additional product to the cart from the pop-up window it is not fully recharged but is updated with the new product, offering new suggested products, which makes this window into a complete sales ecosystem . [19] 659026] In short. You can trust the default sales funnel of WooCommerce, quite confusing and ineffective or customize to your liking a pop-up window system that channels your buyers completely getting ] reduce cart abandonment rate and by improving your conversions in effective sales .

    I have it clear.

    And you, have you tried a system of this type? Do you know any other plugin that works for the same?

How to completely uninstall the cache plugins in WordPress • WordPress Help

You already know that cache plugins are essential for WordPress but just like install them is easy, uninstall them It is not completely so, and if you do it wrong your site is broken, at all .

It is quite common that, when you uninstall a cache plugin, to install another or use another cache system, you have problems with your website, sometimes having an error 500, which leaves your site totally invisible .

This is because caching plugins are not usually uninstalled completely they have that ugly custom and they just delete the plugin folder, leaving trash for several parts of your installation .

As not all cache plugins are installed the same let's see how to completely uninstall free cache plugins most popular .

How to uninstall completely WP Super Cache

Despite its popularity, this Automattic cache plugin sometimes does not make a clean install after uninstall it and delete it from your plugins screen.

Although is the one that is best uninstalled when you deactivate and erase the plugin, it does not always get it then I always recommend that you verify that you have done it Well .

The list of plugin modifications that you must review to uninstall it completely if they existed after uninstalling it and deleting it is the following:

  • Delete the file / wp-content / ] advanced-cache.php
  • Delete the file /wp-content/wp-cache-config.php
  • Borrain in the .htaccess file of your server everything from #BEGIN WPSuperCache through #END WPSuperCache both lines included
  • Delete in the file wp-config.php the line that says define ('WP_CACHE', true); // Added by WP-Cache Manager
  • Delete in the file wp-config.php the line that says define ('WPCACHEHOME', '/ home / optimal5 / public_html / wp-content / plugins / wp-super-cache / '); // Added by WP-Cache Manager
  • Delete the folder / wp-content / cache /
  • Delete the folder / wp-content / plugins / wp-super-cache / [19659136] You may not find anything or you may find it all, I already tell you that is the one that best behaves when you uninstall it, but always check .

    It does not matter if you had it active in basic mode or advanced, check the list always after deactivating it and deleting it.

    In the best case you will only find the lines #BEGIN WPSuperCache and #END WPSuperCache in the .htaccess file , with nothing between them, but delete them equally.

    How to uninstall completely W3 Total Cache

    This " intense " plugin contains hundreds of configurations, and not what I almost never recommend because it requires very wide knowledge of server operation, cache files and their settings s, but there are many people who try it … and then uninstall it after being overwhelmed with its settings.

    And of course, then has the ugly habit of uninstalling pretty badly leave all your WordPress installation full of orphan folders, files and codes .

    It will not always be this way, and in the last versions has improved a lot, but it's worth never to check it .

    The list of changes to check and delete if you find them is the following:

    • Delete the file /wp-content/advanced-cache.php
    • Borra the file / wp-content / object-cache.php [19659014] Delete the file /wp-content/db.php
    • Borra in the file .htaccess of your server everything from # BEGIN W3TC Browser Cache up to # END W3TC Browser Cache both lines included.
    • Delete in file .htaccess from your server everything from # BEGIN W3TC CDN to # END W3TC CDN both lines included.
    • Delete in file .htaccess from your server everything from # BEGIN W3TC Page Cache core to # END W3TC Page Cache core both lines included.
    • Delete in file wp-config.php lines ** Enable W3 Total Cache * / and
      define ('WP_CACHE', true); // Added by W3 Total Cache
    • Delete the folder / wp-content / cache /
    • Delete the folder / wp-content / w3tc-config /
    • Delete the folder / wp- content / plugins / w3-total-cache /

    How to uninstall completely WP Fastest Cache

    This plugin is being making it very easy to configure and minimized files .

    But is the same as the rest of the cache plugins not to clean all your installation after disable it and erase it.

    First of all, if you activated the minimized HTML and CSS files in your settings, before deactivating the plugin deactivates those options .

    Then deactivates the cache, deactivates and delete the plugin, and follow this list to check that it has been completely uninstalled :

    • Delete in the file vo .htaccess from your server everything from # BEGIN WpFastestCache to # END WpFastestCache both lines included.
    • Delete in file ] .htaccess of your server everything from # BEGIN GzipWpFastestCache to # END GzipWpFastestCache both lines included.
    • Delete in the file .htaccess from your server everything from # BEGIN LBCWpFastestCache to # END LBCWpFastestCache both lines included.
    • Delete the / wp- folder content / cache /
    • Delete the folder / wp-content / plugins / w3-fastest-cache /

    As you will see it does not leave as much crap as others its cache system is based entirely on .htaccess rules .

    Of course, even if you think that e, after deactivating it, it has deleted the lines of .htaccess deletes the orphaned lines that leaves at the beginning.

    How to uninstall completely Comet Cache

    Another very used cache plugin is this, that adds, among other things, the Gzip compression .

    As in the previous ones, after deactivating it and deleting it, it reviews and cleans the following :

    • Deletes the file / wp -content / advanced-cache.php
    • Delete in the file .htaccess of your server everything from # BEGIN Comet Cache to # END Comet Cache both lines included.
    • Delete in the file wp-config.php the line define ('WP_CACHE', true); that it adds in the second line of your WordPress configuration file.
    • Delete the folder / wp-content / cache /
    • Delete the folder / wp-content / plugins / comet-cache /

    This is the most guarrillos, and never deletes the file advanced-cache.php nor the folder / cache / both in / wp-content / .

    How to uninstall WP Rocket completely

    If the cache plugin you use is WP Rocket, without free option , only for payment, the manual uninstall instructions, after deactivating the plugin, are the following:

    • Delete the folders / wp-content / cache / and / wp-content /wp-rocket-config/.
    • Borra the file / wp-content / advanced-cache.php .
    • Edit the file .htaccess and delete everything between the lines #BEGIN WP ROCKET and #END WP ROCKET both included.
    • Edit the file wp-config.php and put the line define ('WP_CACHE', true) in false or delete it, whatever you prefer.
    • In the database of your WordPress delete the table tuprefijodetabla_rocket_settings and all its transient files ( transients ) and cronjobs .

    How to uninstall Cache Enabler completely

    In case your chosen plugin is Cache Enabler and you decide to uninstall it, after deactivating the plugin and deleting it from the WordPress desktop you should check the following in case the plugin has not deleted it, which is usually done, it is quite clean in this regard:

    • Edit the wp-config.php file and delete the line that says define ('WP_CACHE', true); // Added by Cache Enabler or change from true to false.
    • Delete file / wp-content / advanced-cache.php

    Just review, because in my tests I always cleaned both the wp-config.php line and the file advanced-cache.php .

    Is there a clean cache plugin that does not leave any residue?

    The only and best way to apply cache to your WordPress without using files or modifying your web configurations is to use server cache systems .

    If you have your web hosted on SiteGround uninstall any WordPress cache plugin and install its plugin SG Optimizer .

    After activating its server cache systems (static, dynamic and memcached ), both in the plugin and in section Sup cPanel erCacher you will have a faster cache, because is activated on the server and stored in RAM much faster.

    Other hosting companies also have their own strategies and plugins server cache, like WP Engine, though at prices beyond the reach of ordinary mortals, like you and I.

How to hide WooCommerce prices in search results

The plugin uses custom content types ( custom post types ) for this, so the interface already knows it. You just have to take advantage of its peculiarities.

  • There is some untranslated string in settings (already warned by developers).
  • It's not free.

There are more plugins besides these?

Yes, of course, many, but I do not quote them for the following reasons :

  • Of the free ones none of the improvements we have seen, and none is a viable and professional option, nor is the free version of Yith's. We talk about business, of not losing sales almost made, and we have to play in the first division, with full plugins, no light .
  • Of those paid almost all offer the same but only with YITH you will have everything you need, in your language, and support and direct line with the developers in Spanish, and that is vital for any business .

What do I do then? What do you recommend?

My recommendation, clearly, is a combination of 2 strategies :

  1. Avoid as much as possible the abandonment with a good design and structure of your online store, taking advantage of the possibilities offered by WooCommerce to make the contents of the cart clearly visible at all times.
  2. Undoubtedly use the plugin YITH Recover Abandoned Cart . It is the best, and for the ridiculous amount of about € 65 you have a complete sales recovery tool from abandoned carts and pending orders you pay it off right away. With sales is not played . There is a free version of the plugin in WordPress.org, similar to the one we saw above, but in these important things do not get complicated, is not an expense, it is a necessary investment which is justified by itself . In addition, you have support in Spanish something that does not offer any other plugin of this type, neither free nor paid.

And you, what strategies do you use to fight against cart abandonment?
