How WordPress affects (positively) SEO, a case study • WordPress Help

 WORDPRESS SEO WORDPRESS I always recommend WordPress to create dynamic and easy to update websites, and SEO is one of the bonuses that end up convincing anyone. That WordPress is a content manager that improves positioning web thanks to its structure, its plugins, well-designed themes and blogging is something known, but it never hurts to put it in figures and real cases.

Something like this is what they explain in Points Group that they received the order from a client that, after hiring a programmer to design a static website, without a content manager, they saw a debacle in traffic as can be seen in the following graphics before and after:

The web looked great , and the keywords in principle were well defined and configured, but the reality is that the site went down scandalously in all traffic measurements and reach .

What the people of Points Group did, how can you imagine, it was install WordPress and a couple of plugins that will dynamically generate titles and descriptions . Of course, this can also be programmed by hand but with WordPress it is much faster and, above all, it does not require any subsequent modifications, everything is done at the moment from the CMS.

What happened? that quickly the web regained lost traffic with the same content and a few redirects later from the hand-programmed pages to WordPress taxonomies.

 after installing wordpress

But the thing did not stop there but, very wisely, the client was recommended to take advantage of the virtues of WordPress as a content creation tool indicating that they would use the blogging features to generate entries in a habitual way, at the beginning only 2 publications per month . The result ?, the web far exceeded any previous traffic statistics .

 after blogging

Unfortunately, the client stopped publishing regularly (2 monthly entries) for work reasons, and the traffic went down a bit, however the web just lowered traffic to blogging prices levels.

What can we learn from this real case?

  1. WordPress is a CMS that by itself improves the SEO of a web.
  2. If we update the web in a consistent way WordPress shows all its potential, improving even more the positioning and traffic of the site.

Consequently:

  1. Use WordPress.
  2. Blog.

If you have a similar case, tell it 🙂

Uses of WordPress in Education • WordPress Help

Yesterday I discovered in the blog of Fernando Cruz Bello an interesting article about how to use WordPress in educational environments which not only detailed some of these possible uses but also what accompanied by some great videos and explanations that are not usually elsewhere.

I mean, for example, this fantastic video in which in a few minutes explains in a simple way what is a CMS

Regarding your proposals for the use of WordPress in education highlights the following:

This content was created for the students of the Banco Santander Chair of the University of Zaragoza, and you better read the full article in Fernando's blog .

WordPress for journalists

Today they echoed in Periodismociudadano.com of a article of 10,000 words in which show the virtues of WordPress as a tool of journalism, especially indicated for field reporters, thanks to its characteristics and simplicity.

In the article, they break down 5 ways in which WordPress is very useful for journalists in the field and, of course, for any connected user who has to publish from outside their usual office or home environment:

1. WordPress mobile applications

WordPress dispose of mobile applications with which practically in any platform, a journalist can publish sue articles, from a WiFi network or through 3G connection:

And if you do not have any of these smartphones You can always access from any other mobile to http://m.wordpress.com/ .

With any of these applications you can post, add photos, review your content before publishing it, moderate comments and , of course, publish content on the network from your mobile.

2. Publish by voice

Although not available for the entire world, the option of publish by voice which I already talked about in its day, can be a very interesting solution for reporters in difficult situations ( enemy fire, darkness), in which they can not type what they want to publish. It can also be a great resource for publishing interviews.

The system, as I mentioned, is simple, you just have to go to your desktop (from WordPress.com), then to My Sites and Activate publish by voice. To publish you just have to call the number indicated there, enter your secret code and start talking. You have up to one hour per call, and the call stops by itself if you stop talking for 10 seconds.

3. Geolocation of your publications

If you are reporting from several sites you can add geolocation to each of them, either manually or automatically. You will find it in your blog on wordpress.com in "Users -> Personal settings -> My location -> Activate geolocation" (well, in fact you still get the texts in English). You can also do it in a WordPress hosted by geolocation plugins .

4. Publish via SMS

If you are in a situation with a bad connection, without 3G but with basic mobile coverage, you can publish via SMS an option that you will also find on the Settings page of your WordPress site. com

Even in this very spartan mode you can moderate and respond to comments and, of course, post entries.

5. Upload videos from mobile with VideoPress

VideoPress is a high quality video platform that, of course, also supports the uploading of video files from any of the WordPress mobile applications. It is not free but its price (about € 84 a year) is adjusted for the quality and possibilities it offers, especially for the professional.

As if this were not enough, there are dozens of WordPress plugins for journalists ]which will complement these 5 tips.

And, well, this is the compilation that you do in the original article, can you think of one more oriented to journalists?

Follow the controversy for the "like" of WordPress.com

Despite what some said in the comments of the post about the "rebellion" it seems that the row continues more after the same Matt closed the thread of the forums where the discussion was raised and also the comments of the announcement of the new feature were closed.

If not you defend with English, what is posed (again) to Automattic is, not a global confrontation to the feature but to estimate the possibility that some users can disable it. It even contemplates the possibility of closing accounts using countermeasures something that seems to contradict the TOS of WordPress.com, which reads …

"our service is designed to offer you so much control and ownership for your site as possible "

To finish fixing it, go Matt and in the comments of the new single thread the next pearl :

" The feature will not be removed, and will continue to evolve. If you do not like it, maybe you should consider using an alternative blogging service or hosting your own WordPress. "

Very bad Matt! That they are not telling you all that they are absolutely against the "I like", they are telling you that the user has the option to enable it or not, as with other additional tools such as links with popup or related links. They tell you that, in addition, if someone does re-blogging through the "Like" is sometimes skipping the content license that the blogger has decided to have copyrights, is making it easier to skip the rights of the blogger the copy-paste by work and grace of WordPress.com nothing else.

In my opinion Automattic is mishandling this controversy cutting the communication (despite that Matt said he would be willing to talk about this matter), threatening to close accounts, not accepting that not everyone likes the new features, however chachipirulis that Matt seems.

And this does not it's like the controversy (which also resurfaces from time to time) about the prohibition to put publicity in the blogs of WordPress.com, this is very different, here only asks that the decision of the owner of the site be respected that its content is copied very easily in other places without your consent, something that affects even the VIP accounts or with the redirected domain.

Rebellion against the "Like" of WordPress.com • WordPress Help

I had no idea, I just advise Galois in the comments that there is [19659004] many bloggers that are absolutely against of the feature " Like " from WordPress.com.

And it is that with this functionality anyone can " re-publish " an entry of yours in his blog, and that has bothered many even though the idea was good.

For example, doing tests, it has been checked that if you republish an entry this maintains the links to the original article, but if someone returns to republish the same entry the links would go to site B, to the first one who copied the entry and not to the creator of the content. And of course, people do not like to start appearing sites that republish information from specific niches to – bypassing the advertising policy of WordPress.com – attract traffic from specific niches for less honorable issues (affiliate links, ads, things like that

Another example, which has not been taken into account by the people of Automattic, is that there are bloggers have rights to copy their content or that they only allow copying content to a specific extent. And of course, this functionality jumps everything to the bullfighter, cuts us all by the same pattern, anyone can copy your entire content of an entry (or all) with the ease of " I like ". [19659011] Curious controversy, do not you think? It brings to light, surely without wanting to, the whole matter of copying content, ownership and the fact of recognizing the author of the original contents . And the worst thing is that Automattic does not seem to have measured the scope of this measure, they have just thrown it thinking – go know – that it was something "cool", very cool and very Social Media I do not know if for Do not fall behind and do community.

Fortunately, if you do not like this feature, if you think it's a step backwards in the recognition of the original content, or at least should have been consulted before, as is done with the New features of WordPress.org, you can avoid leaving the "Like" button in the admin bar. Yes, you need to have acquired the CSS update because you have to add this line to the style sheet of your theme:

In case you have not updated you can add an image to your posts complaining about this new functionality, in addition to a text that allows you to know who copies you entries . You just have to add the following to the beginning of your entries (in HTML):

The image you choose your clear, perhaps with a text that says "Create your own tickets please"

What do you think about all this controversy?
