The importance of keywords for on-page SEO

How often should I repeat my main keyword on a page? Should the keyword only appear on one page, or on every page of my website? What is the importance of keywords in the URL? What about close variants, plural and singular? Fortunately, the over-emphasis on keywords is a thing of the past. But a […]

WordPress Popover options and ways to make them less annoying

I have many clients who find that their email list is their most important marketing tool. If someone allows you to message then in their email inbox you have a great opportunity to communicate your ongoing brand messages. The most sophisticated solution requires a member log-in system so the website can know who has signed up already. […]

The difference between “custom content type” and “custom post type” and how to use them

“Custom Content Types“ (CCT) or “Custom Post Types” (CPT) are the same thing:  ways to group together similar types of content. “Custom Post Types” is the official name since WordPress started with “posts” but I think it’s more useful to think of them as types of  “content”. They are stored just like posts and pages with a unique […]

Creative WordPress Archive Pages – Posts in Grids

I use “Snazzy” Archives (wp.org page) and you can view mine but it is more interesting when you go back in time to view months where I have more posts. It has not been updated in a while but it still works great. Another great option is the JetPack Infinite Scroll + Masonry and some detailed notes on making a […]

Alternatives to Hello Bar: WordPress Notification Bar Plugins

Hello Bar is a SaaS which charges based on the number of clicks the bar receives. If your bar receives 7,500 clicks per month, HelloBar would cost you $50/month. It’s a great service and includes it’s own analytics but many sites will benefit from a simpler option without ongoing fees. Foobar ($14) Foobar is my favorite […]

Akismet Error Code #10003

This is a pretty new development. Akismet is not free anymore – but they do have a free version for “personal” use (well, it’s listed as “pay what you want”). If you see this error then don’t panic. For that matter, in general, don’t panic. I think for now you can leave things as-is and my guess […]
