Avoid tracking "Add to cart" in WooCommerce

Have you ever considered avoiding search engine robots crawling your links " Add to cart "? Well there are good and powerful reasons.

Why avoid tracking the links of "Add to cart" in WooCommerce

Although here I am referring mainly to WooCommerce this problem also affects others CMS of e-commerce, keep this in mind.

The problem is not WooCommerce, nor the format of the links " add-to-cart " but ] URLs of " add-to-cart " can not be cached .

 add to cart woocommerce

And this is due to its nature of being requests that can not be managed from the cache either from a server or through a WordPress plugin.

Therefore, l the search engine robots will always be querying these requests , in real time and without cache with which will increase the consumption of CPU, memory, and even width of band sobremanera.

If we add that are links that should not be indexed by themselves because they do not add semantics to your products, we have a lot of links in your online store that consume a lot of resources and make your SEO and WPO .

How to prevent robots from tracking your "Add to cart" links in WooCommerce

, We must also be clear and point out that themes for WooCommerce have two ways of executing this function of " add-to-cart " .

  • Some do it via Javascript, and robots do not usually get along well with this type of links.
  • And there are other themes for WooCommerce that add the links " add-to-cart " directly in HTML.

You just have to check the source code of your online store to know how your theme does it. [19659016] Through JavaScript

Through HTML

In any case, it does not matter if your subject does it for JavaScript or HTML it is always advisable not to index this type of links / requests .

For this the most effective is add a few lines to your file robots.txt located in the root folder of your WordPress installation:

And, already , you can also not index other pages that do not provide anything to the SEO of your online store, how are you:

What do I earn doing this?

Well it brings several substantial improvements:

  • You considerably reduce the number of requests that can not be cachear
  • Reduces your server's CPU consumption considerably
  • Reduces your server's memory consumption
  • Reduces your server's bandwidth
  • Reduces your store's load times Online
  • Improve the performance of your online store.
  • Improve the SEO of your online store.

I think there is no doubt about the convenience of avoiding the tracking of links " Add to cart "no?

How to disable Google AMP in WordPress

Although AMP is a Google project that offers really fast loading pages there are users that are considering removing them from their websites for various reasons. If this is your case we will see how to disable Google AMP in WordPress .

But first a review of advantages and disadvantages of AMP, so that you can make the decision with knowledge.

Advantages of AMP

] It is irrefutable that AMP has important advantages:

  • It is a open Google project supported by big industry.
  • Google gives priority to the results of AMP pages in its mobile search engine ]resulting in a noticeable traffic increase for AMP pages over those that do not.
  • SEO improvements for increased traffic.
  • AMP pages they are clean and easy to read which results in user satisfaction .
  • AMP pages load much faster than those that are not, improving the experience of user and reducing the bounce rate .

I Conveniences of AMP

It also has its things:

  • Conversion is reduced because AMP does not show many forms, subscriptions, etc.
  • Pageviews are reduced because menus are deleted , related links, the user enters a loop whose only output is X to return to the search engine.
  • Internal navigation is reduced by disappearing widgets and other elements that could keep visitors on your site.

I mean plugins like Glue for Yoast SEO & AMP AMP for WooCommerce etc.

Create redirects from your AMP pages to normal

Either with a plugin or from the file .htaccess you should create redirects of your AMP pages already indexed to the normal ones .

If you use a plugin like Redirection go to Tools> Redirection and add a Regex redirect (regular expressions) from your AMP pages to the norms evils, like this:

In Source URL put this:

And in Target URL the following (changing the example domain by yours clear ):

And if you prefer to do so by adding the redirect yourself to the .htaccess file then add the following:

For to check that redirects work try to access the AMP version of any publication on your site and see if it redirects to the version without AMP.

That is, when typing something like mydomain.com/my-entry/amp/ redirects to mydomain.com/my-entry /

And you, you go to remove AMP pages?

Personally I have not even thought about doing it, because in my experience n customers (mainly) improvements in traffic and SEO after implementing AMP have been remarkable.

But if you have a different experience tell us in the comments.

Only the author of the post can respond to comments • WordPress Help

The nested comments are very good, because they encourage the debate between readers of your web / blog, but they are not always the best idea, and sometimes it would be better if only the comments of the visitors could be answered by the author of the entry .

I do not mean that visitors can not respond with their comments to the entry, but that they can not get into discussions between them .

This is especially useful for support sites, corporate blogs, or anywhere you want avoid intense, eternal, useless debates between users .

Automatically load entries after the current one

Surely you've seen that lately it's a trend in many digital newspapers and blogs that when you're seeing an entry, when you reach the end of the they continue to load more tickets . Well we are going to learn to do or.

What is it really?

We are not talking about the infinite scroll that is loading your entries on the cover or file of entries, but rather that when a visitor is reading a single entry on their own page, when they reach the end, they automatically load another entry, then another, and so on .

First of all, do you have any advantage?

]Well of course. Think that when a visitor comes to an entry of your blog or news website, when you reach the end of it, you will continue to offer additional content without leaving the initial page and soon you get to attract your Attention will increase your time spent on page .

Also, if the system is well implemented, will be loaded with each new entry its URL and own title which will increase the percentage of page views per visit / session.

In short:

  • Increase the time spent on your pages / site.
  • Increase page views.
  • Reduce the bounce rate.

And disadvantages?

Well, again, if the system is well implanted, none. Even Google has declared that there is nothing wrong with the infinite scroll of entries or whatever, as long as the navigation and structure of the web is clear, while each content has its URL own .

And if your system of automatic scroll of following entrances loads the new URLs and titles dynamically there is no problem, because is the user experience, its scroll, the one that loads them, with that there is user interaction, not in clicks, but in navigation .

The only thing that can be seen negatively impacted are comments because they can be in the background or even disappear (if so you want it) But you can force your load, so they do not have to disappear either.

And also, if you do not have it fixed, footer which might not get to see or take longer to appear. It has a solution? Yes, because you can move its contents to a sidebar, or control the number of entries to show, so that the thing does not last.

Convinced! How do I put it?

Let's go …

What gets the magic is JavaScript which will be responsible for loading the new entries when it detects that the user is browsing at the end of the initial entry, and will begin loading the next one, while changing the URL in the browser's address bar and the goals in the source code.

And all this we could do it by hand, but as we are happy WordPress users we have a wonderful plugin that will help us get it : Auto Load Next Post

The plugin uses JavaScript to detect the end of the content block of the current entry, then load the next, with its own URL and goals .

If you reload the current entry this will become the entry initial (remember to change the URL) and after these will start a new loop of entries that will follow it.

In case you have any doubt, your browser history saves all the URLs visited another shows that you are really visiting all those URLs, each one with its own content.

Also, if you have already implemented the tracking code Google Analytics (preferably in the header) will collect traffic statistics of all the URLs that are loaded ]improving your reports.

How do you install?

In principle you install and activate it like any other WordPress plugin, but you have some homework ahead .

First thing is add to your theme the compatibility with the plugin for which you have to add to the file functions.php of the theme (or theme child) the following:

Then scroll through the screen of plugin settings in Settings> Auto Load Next Post to configure the selectors for your theme since does not detect them automatically.

In this page of settings you must configure in each section which selectors correspond the different sections of your entries for what you should check the CSS of your active theme, because the plugin puts you in principle selectors by default, which do not have to match those of your theme.

In this way, you must indicate which selector is the container of the contents of the entry, the title, the entry navigation as and the comments .

Once identified and entered in their respective settings, you have 3 boxes in which you can configure if you want to eliminate the display of comments if you want ] that each entry load is recorded in Google Analytics (it is a resounding yes) or, to finish, if you want that if you delete the plugin your settings are removed from your database.

How many entries does it automatically load? ?

All you have. Think of the plugin as your navigation of previous page but if you have to click .

Does it work?

Yes, but you first have to perform the Two steps to integrate it with your active theme, it is not automatic . In fact, if you do not add the function of compatibility with the plugin it will show you a warning to include it.

But once this is done, and the selectors of your theme have been identified and introduced in the settings of the plugin, works as a joke .

At the end of an entry it will load the next one, and so on, changing the URL of the navigation bar and the goals in the source code.

If you want to see a demo, click any entry on the testing site and navigate to the end of it to see it.

Does it work with all themes?

Well, not . If after adding the function of compatibility with the plugin and the selectors your theme does not do what you should, you can do a trick.

If your theme does not use the standard selectors WordPress creates a new folder in your theme of the type: [19659050] tu-tema / auto-load-next-post / and copy there the template file content-partial.php that you'll find in the plugin folder.

Modify it so that it adapt to your theme and from that moment the plugin will load that template instead of the default.

Also shortly there will be a premium version which incorporates some improvements, among which is the detection automatic selectors

Solve accidents caused by Code Snippets

We have already commented on another article what good plugin that is Code Snippets. To put yourself in the background, this plugin is used to create modifications in WordPress or directly on the web page and save them individually. These changes can later be exported, since they can be valuable and reusable in other WordPress projects if you are a developer.

Some examples of Code Snippets

If you do not know it, we can use it to make a simple visual change modifying CSS , or even add functions to functions.php without fear of burdening us.

Okay, so far we have it clear that it is Code Snippets.

But what happens if we make some mistake in the syntax of the code we write?

Well, we're not machines. And we can make mistakes when writing new code, or if we take advantage of other people's code maybe we do not know what we are copying and it is badly written.

Due to those problems and the type of error that we have written we can "break" the page and make An error 500 appears, a 404 error or directly that our page with WordPress appears completely white. At that moment a chill runs through our body.

First solution, although it does not always work

We must enter by FTP and locate the file wp-config.php (the FTP credentials will be available in our Hosting). We must add the line:

We save the changes and upload the file via FTP again. What we have done is deactivate all functions of Code Snippets to be able to review them.

After commenting that line or eliminating it, they would work normally again.

Second solution. Above all reassurance

The first solution is not always valid for one reason or another. So we have to dig deeper. Let's see. We know what we have done. We have written a new code; we have saved it; we have activated it to be executed; and neither the front-end nor the back-end works anymore and we are blocked.

It's time to resort to the database and correct it from there.

To be able to To correct this problem we must have access to the database of our WordPress. From the Hosting we have hired we will have a link to phpMyAdmin and directly to our tables in the database.

 code-snippet-table

Do not be afraid, but you have to have a lot watch out. We must locate the table that stores the functions we have done with Code Snippets. It is identified because it has the suffix "snippets"

We enter the table and we will see the records

 code-snippet-record "width =" 1019 "height =" 70 "srcset =" https: // ayudawp.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/code-snippet-registro.png 1019w, https://ayudawp.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/code-snippet-registro-550x38.png 550w, https://ayudawp.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/code-snippet-registro-768x53.png 768w, https://ayudawp.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/code -snippet-register-840x58.png 840w "sizes =" (max-width: 1019px) 100vw, 1019px "/> </p>
<p> Taking into account the last change we made, we must change the value of <em><strong> active </strong> </em> from 1 (or activated) to 0 (or deactivated). </p>
<p> Done, with that change we can access the front-end and the back-end again because we have deactivated the element that executed our failure. </p>
<p> Only is to enter that code again and correct our error. </p>

Divi Tutorial: Put the secondary menu under the main

Today I came up with a pijada that still serves you at times for some web of yours or of some client: put the secondary menu below the main one in Divi.

And the thing is quite simple, since you just have to apply a bit of CSS simple to the elements that determine the position of both menus.

To do so open the Customizer> Additional CSS and add the following code:

How to improve the accessibility of your WordPress site

If you want to help the progress of WordPress it is important to be up to date. And today everyone who has a website must think about its accessibility .

When you have to design a website you have to take into account the necessary techniques and skills and try everything. The techniques required for a web are many, as well as the skills.

But the tests are what makes the difference . A website that does not analyze its usability is nothing. And when we talk about usability we must also be talking about accessibility, because we are not going to leave without being able to access your website in reasonable conditions to 17% of the population right?

So if you have a website you have to think about your accessibility .

But what is making an accessible website?

 Photo by MariCarmen de Alba in her speech in WordCamp Chiclana on accessibility

Mª Carmen de Alba in WordCamp Chiclana

Basically we could say that it is to make your website visible and easily navigable for users, but for all .

And I say this because the capacity or incapacity of a person does not should determine the accessibility to your website .

Imagine, for example, a blind person browsing your website and easily accessing your content.

Accessibility is giving all users equal opportunities for surfing your website regardless of their capabilities or technological limitations.

Having said that, we will look at some aspects to take into account to improve the accessibility of your website.

How to improve accessibility

 accessibility "width =" 624 "height =" 466 "srcset =" https://ayudawp.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/accessibility.jpg 624w, https://ayudawp.com/wp-content/ uploads / 2017/10 / accessibility-550x411.jpg 550w, https://ayudawp.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/accessibility-510x382.jpg 510w "sizes =" (max-width: 624px) 100vw, 624px "/> </p>
<ol>
<li><strong> Structure and consistent design </strong> – There are lots of themes that you can use on your website but it is important that your design has a stable, consistent structure to improve accessibility to your website. If you have sidebar, navigation menus, they should be consistent on every page of your web .. </li>
<li><strong> Text <em> alt </em> in all images </strong> – The text <em> alt </em> is simply an alternative to an image, as a small description that explains what is seen in the image. For example, if you put a picture of a black dog, your text <em> alt </em> should say something like "my black dog". In this way users who use screen readers for vision problems may have a complete understanding of all the elements of your page when reading this text <em> alt </em>. </li>
<li><strong> Use well readable fonts </strong> – No use fonts that are difficult to read, too thin, with designs that make reading difficult, or sizes that are too small. </li>
<li><strong> Use headings correctly on all pages </strong> – Headings, <em> H </em>give your web a semantic structure. Every website usually has a main title, which defines it, but the most important thing for accessible reading is that the headers are used correctly, and the rules to follow are simple: </li>
<li><strong> Make the linked content meaningful </strong> – Imagine a page with links like "click here", "keep reading" or something similar on a help page, what is not very understandable? You will make your website less accessible. Get used to the fact that when you link to another page, the linked texts are understandable, that they have a meaning in themselves. </li>
<li><strong> Improves and expands the three-level approach </strong>. Web design sometimes speaks of the three-level approach, which separates the content, style and behavior of the page. This is a good practice that improves the accessibility of the web. </li>
<li><strong> Test your website by all possible methods </strong> – To know if your website is really accessible you must visit it by all possible methods and technologies, but above all to be visited by people with different abilities and disabilities. For example, navigate only from the keyboard, without a mouse. Check CSS, contrast levels, try it in different browsers. Check the color schemes and how different people see them. Test, test, test. </li>
</ol>
<h2><span id= To finish

When we talk about accessibility in WordPress we are talking mainly about the topics. So, to begin, find a topic that makes it better than the rest, so you will have to make fewer modifications on your own.

There are many more aspects to consider, many, for what I invite you to take a look to the presentation that in WordCamp Chiclana imparted my friend Mª Carmen de Alba absolutely indispensable to understand these and other factors

How to allow to request quotes in your WooCommerce online store

Although WooCommerce is very complete the fact of putting a price, fixed or variable, to the products does not cover all needs, and in many cases , products, shops, it is imperative to offer the possibility of asking for personalized quotes .

Advantages of adding the budget request

Have you ever thought about it or do not encourage you to ask yourself the interesting thing about contemplating the inclusion of a system, or at least one button, budget request in your online store .

Note that not always your customers will understand your pricing policy, let alone the of discounts .

On the other hand, you may be losing customers by not being flexible enough in your prices .

Imagine, for example, that you have a fixed price for a product, but what will I be Is it open to offer a discount for periodic orders? Would not that help to get more sales?

And then there are those products that we often insist on putting a price on when they actually have so many peculiarities that, creating variations or we fall short, or we pass or simply confuse the client.

Think, for example, of professional jobs, how do you turn them into products? Putting every possible variation ?

Would not it be better to have a specific form for budget request?

But not a normal form, which for that you do not even need WooCommerce, but a specialized form that allows you to apply a budget that, if accepted, automatically becomes an order .

That's what we're talking about, and opens a world of new possibilities to your e-commerce .

To get it, as always, we have our friends the plugins to be able to add this budget request functionality easily to our online store created with WooCommerce.

Come on to see the most interesting, both free and paid.

However, someone may be worth this, at least because is integrated as a button to your products in the store .

Yith Request to Quote

Plugin free similar to the previous one, with something else although not really much more.

Integration

It is also interesting the possibility of integrate with plugins of forms such as Contact Form 7, Gravity Forms and Formidable Forms, to alleviate the deficiencies of the default form.

Form and page of application [19659046]

The main problem that I found in this plugin is that is not translated and, above all, that the support is by form, in English, from the page of the author so there is no possibility of assessing its operation based on the opinions and questions of other users before purchase, a penalty, although quite common in Envato.

Another shortcoming is that allows the generation of the budget in a PDF something very practical especially for customers.

7 false myths about Divi that they have told you (and you have believed). Get update

Hello friends! My name is Gonzalo de la Campa and I work as a freelance doing work as graphic designer and web in www.paginaswebempresas.es and as a teacher of WordPress, Divi, Woocommerce … in www.cursowp-online.com

First of all, thank Fernando (the WordPress Messi) to open the doors of his blog. For me it is an honor. I will not tire of repeating it.

And now, to the mess.

This is an article that I have been forced to write due to the, still a lot of people confused with the theme Divi by Elegant Themes.

Divi is a theme that makes hundreds of thousands of users all over the world not in vain is it the best-selling WordPress themes on the planet, but he is also hated by others.

And in the middle many confused people and many times with wrong information. With what this post, born to dismantle false myths and I hope it helps you clarify ideas.

But before entering sand I want to make one thing clear …

If today you are hesitating to use one theme or another, whether it's Divi, Genesis, GeneratePress or some plugin for editing pages, either Divi (also a plugin), Elementor Thrive Architecht, etc. I will tell you that in my opinion, with almost none you are wrong. It would be like choosing between a BMW, a Mercedes or an Audi, all are great brands.

That said, if you ask me to be 100% frank with you if I tell you …

What if you do not have many knowledge neither of php, nor of css … bet before by Divi because if you mess with Genesis you can have more than one headache. If you are a programmer sure that options like Genesis are great but the problem is when a programmer tells someone without knowledge to use Genesis. It would be something like if a plane pilot tells you to punch him or a doctor you operate, if you do not have knowledge you can go head first.

False Myth 1: If you change the subject you lose all the designs.

] False.

This false myth I love. I do not know how many times I have heard it. In fact this is what I usually hear: "The problem of Divi is that if I change the subject I lose all the designs of my pages and that with other subjects does not happen" hehe

I would like to put the answer in a h2 to be clear forever, but I'm not going to do it, I'll continue writing with this size of letter but you get this in your head 😉

If I change the subject of Divi to another theme and install the Divi plugin in the new theme NO I LOSE MY DESIGNS.

Repeat with me … If I change the theme of Divi to another theme and install the Divi plugin in the new theme I DO NOT LOSE MY DESIGNS

hehe forgives the joke, but I want this to be clear. [19659005] And what I say for Divi is valid for any visual constructor. If you change the theme and install the page builder in the new theme, you will not lose the designs you have made with that layout, either Divi, Thrive Architect or whatever.

That being said …

If you change of theme and do not install the plugin with which you made the pages (either Divi, Thrive Architect, Elementor or whatever) YES LOSE YOUR DESIGNS.

Here comes the problem

Companies like those that have designed Elementor or Thrive Architect in my opinion have created some confusion because they say that if you deactivate your plugin you lose nothing and it is not true and as this Elegant Themes does not say it (that I know) have confused many.

With Elementor or Thrive Architect … you also lose all the layout if you change the subject and do not install the plugin or if you disable the plugin on the web you are doing.

It's pure logic, it's like If you have made a house and remove the beams, gentlemen, falls

What happens is that with Elementor … even if you lose all the layout does not generate short codes. That is to say, what you have left, is without columns, without design and without anything, that is, if you are one of those who take care of the image, it is not for you at all but yes, there is a clean garbage of short codes. What is it worth? You're welcome, but it's a clean garbage, hehe.

Here's a video where I compared this between Divi and Elementor so you can see it with your own eyes.

False Myth 2: It's a subject with poor loading speed. Very heavy and slow

False.

What confuses people is that they have been made to think that by using one theme or another the web will be fast or slow.

I wish it were so simple.

For a web to have a good loading speed many very many factors influence, not just the subject you use, much less. Influences in the first place the images that you upload to your web, I have seen webs in Genesis, GenratePress, Divi … with very fast images that loaded all the speed, influences the Hosting (although now there are many good ones), the external calls as the pixel of Facebook tracking in Facebook Ads campaigns, internal or external videos and hundreds of factors with more and less relevance.

Having said that, to prove it super simple I will do 2 things.

  1. EXAMPLES OF WEBS WITH DIVI SUPER QUICK: To collect these webs it was enough for me to ask in some groups of Divi of Facebook like in mine of Divi in ​​Spanish or in others that of Divi theme users that I passed Divi websites with good upload speeds and in less than 24 hours I had dozens of them:

I'll show you a video where you will see it with your own eyes: [19659005]

False Myth 3: It is overloaded. It's not good for SEO. It is difficult to position in Google.

False.

As I have shown you above overloaded has little. Divi can go like a shot without problems. In fact in this article you can see how Divi has brutally improved its code and its loading speed even by minifying the css without the need for plugins: <a I'll show you a video where you will see it with your own eyes : Divi the fastest subject of the West: It improves the speed of loading by 60%

And what better than to continue demonstrating it with fact and not with opinions.

My own web www.cursowordpress- online.com is positioned with Divi in ​​a keyword of high competition as it is course wordpress and usually appears in second position. And in fact many pages that sell WordPress courses with Genesis and other topics do not appear on the 1st page of Google.

Do you think that little? Do you want more facts?

As you see, I like to prove it with objective data because of opinions the internet is full and everyone has theirs, but today you are going to leave this post knowing objective truths: [19659005] In this other video that I have posted on my website where I offer SEO positioning services, I show some of the dozens and dozens of websites that I have positioned with Divi and on the 1st page of Google. Only I count hundreds of keywords on the 1st page of websites positioned with Divi, so if you multiply that by the huge community of Divi, there must be hundreds of thousands of keywords on the 1st page with websites made with Divi.

False Myth 4: It's expensive.

False.

Well, it really depends on what you compare it with. If you compare it with the price of a bag of pipes if it is expensive. But if you compare it for example with other options of topics in which you have to also buy a builder to be able to layout pages, no

And I'll show you with more objective data, not with my opinion:

Let's see for example prices between GeneratePress + Elementor and Divi prices

  1. Option for unlimited Projects + lifetime updates: With Divi will cost you 249 dollars in one payment.
    If you want to be able to use Generatepress plus Elementor in unlimited projects and for life you will have to pay at least $ 199 per year for Elementor every year. If we calculate 10 years with Elementor you will have paid 1990 dollars plus 39.95 dollars from GeneratePress .
  2. Unlimited projects + 1 year updates: If you are going to use Divi on many customer websites with 89 euros of Divi, you have solved it in addition to having all the Elegant Themes plugins (Bloom, Monarch …) and to be able to use it in unlimited projects with Generatepress and Elementor you'll have to spend 35.95 + 199 = 234.95 . That is, for unlimited websites (and with updates for one year) Divi is almost 3 times cheaper.
  3. One project + updates 1 year: Divi 89 Generatepress + Elementor 84.95. Almost identical.

That said, with any of them, if you make a website to a customer you will amortize it with a single web that you do and if it is for your personal project, between the time you will save and the cool you can leave your web , you will also amortize it with the first client that enters you. So, as I usually say, save at the dinner this Friday that you were going to go, but do not save on the subject that will be the tool with which you design the web that will feed you.

False Myth 5: It is incompatible with many WordPress plugins.

False.

Divi is compatible with most WordPress plugins. I thought I was going to list the thousands of plugins with which it is compatible but, frankly, it gives me something, because they are so many that it would never end. From cache plugins, to multi-language or anything.

In fact Divi has a gigantic community that develops exclusive plugins to increase the power of Divi. If you want to visit my page of Free Resources for Divi and see it. There I am adding websites, directories and many resources that you can use with your WordPress and Divi that will make you design very cool websites in the shortest time possible.

I will not expand on this topic because it is unnecessary.

False Myth 6 : People recommend it for high commissions.

False.

Let's see … if we take into account that in the keyword course wordpress with divi my web appears several times between the first 10 results, and that I have more than 5000 visits per month on the web, more than 50,000 views in my Youtube Channel related to Divi, etc., etc. We could take my website as one of the references of people who could be earning high commissions with Divi affiliates.

Well that is not the case.

My monthly commissions few months reach 100 euros.

With what I would not be very smart if having to pay a mortgage, the maintenance of my 2 children and what it costs all that is not enough, I would waste hours recommending a tool for these ridiculous commissions.

And if that is my case, that of many people who also recommend Divi with less visibility and views than me, I imagine that the commissions they generate will be equal or less, with what … I think this goes to show that normally nobody recommends it for take 50 euros a month, since that is not lived.

We recommend it because we use it daily and we are delighted and if it helps us so much, we believe it can help many more people too. [19659005] And if you do not believe me, pá Sat for the scores of opinions of my students and see what they think of Divi
