10 Super Awesome Insider Tips for your Wordpress Blog

Monday, June 11th, 2012

Source

Here are ten insider tips that the pros put to good use:

  1. To expand the text editor and hide the modules on the publishing screen, enable Distraction Free Writing.

  2. The kitchen sink icon in the post/page editor reveals additional formatting options, enabling you to create headings and indent text, for example.

  3. Press This provides a lightning-fast way to grab content (including text, images, and video) from any website and post it to your blog without ever visiting WordPress.com. Just click the Press This bookmarklet while you’re viewing the webpage, and a pop-up publishing window will appear.

  4. Images displaying funky? Adjust an image’s settings to change size and alignment, or to add padding between images and text.

  5. To add YouTube videos to your posts and pages, simply copy the video’s URL from your browser’s address bar and paste it on a line by itself in the post/page editor.

  6. The more tag allows you to display excerpts of your posts on your main posts page, instead of revealing the entire post.

  7. You can customize your post and page slugs, which can be handy when you want to create a URL that’s easier to remember (it’s also a good way to make posts search-friendly). Note that if you change a post slug, the old link will still work.

  8. To customize the tiny image that people see in their address bar when they visit your blog, upload a blavatar.

  9. The Post Revisions module allows you to look back at recent changes you’ve made, compare post versions, and revert to an earlier version if you need to.

  10. Reproduce fully-functioning tweets — not just static screenshots of tweets — in posts, pages, and even comments with Twitter Blackbird Pie.


Now you have the information you need to make the most of your WordPress.com site. Happy blogging!

Mobile First World

Tuesday, January 31st, 2012

We are rapidly entering a Mobile First World, which means that more and more Internet searches will be done on mobile devices.

The problem is that traditional websites look great on large monitors but they are almost unrecognizable on mobile devices. That translates to frustrated customers and missed sales and opportunities.

The answer is a mobile website. Mobile websites are streamlined to fit perfectly into the small format of mobile devices. There are fewer pages, fewer graphics and easy to press buttons for navigation.

The cost of a mobile website is a fraction of a traditional website and the benefits are numerous. Ask us today how you can take advantage of our Mobile First World with a mobile website.

Google To Index Facebook Comments As Search Results

Friday, November 4th, 2011

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — If you’re finding it tough to stay off of Facebook, you may soon find it even harder to keep your words off of Google.

The Internet’s most popular — and powerful — search engine will soon expand its search index to include user comments on Facebook as part of Google’s traditional search results.

While private users will still be protected, any comments made on Facebook forms on other websites or public pages within the social networking site will be indexed and open for all the world to see.

The controversial change comes as Google looks to expand its reach to any user content currently hiding from its all-seeing search robots — usually in comment systems like the one used on Facebook and other popular sites.

While Google has pledged to take “precautions to avoid performing any task on a site that could result in executing an unintended user action,” not everyone is cheering its latest indexing tool.

Developers are concerned that the new effort could disrupt confidence for users who may feel uncomfortable leaving comments on their respective websites without revealing them to Google — and the rest of the Web community.
