Many seem to believe a rich social network may be the next offering that Google puts together. If this does for collaboration and small group work what Ning has done for social connection, we’ll surely take notice and say something about it on this blog. Keeping privacy in mind, it will be interesting to see if Google’s next offering allows closed-groups (by invitation only) like Ning and Wave did. Allowing controlled access is as important to maintaining a sound virtual learning environment as the rich collaboration and communication features these cloud based tools provide. It is worth remembering, when you use new and experimental tools that are provided for free in the cloud.

The nice things about Wordpress is the number of plugins available. One type of plugin is one that adds extra widgets and other things to the sidebar. Some of these can be helpful, like a latest comments plugin, or they can be completely useless, like a random quote plugin.
This post should cover some of the Do’s and Don’ts of blog sidebars.
A search box must be included in every site’s sidebar. It’s important that the user can search from any page of your site. If you don’t want to put it in the sidebar, put it somewhere else, like in the header. If not in the sidebar or in the header, at least have it in the footer.
If you don’t want to use a horizontal navigation bar, a list of pages in the sidebar can be used as long as the list does not go on for too long. The goal should be to keep each section of the sidebar small, so that there is room for each of the other sections.
Depending on the number of categories you have, a list of categories may be helpful, or it may ruin your entire site. Again, the goal should be to keep each section of the sidebar small.
As we all know, it costs money to run a site, and one way of making money to pay the bills is through advertising. The sidebar is usually one of the most used places for ads. Of course, just make sure not to fill up your sidebar with too many ads, and make sure that they are as unobtrusive as possible.
We think that a latest comments sidebar widget can be very helpful to find the latest discussions at your blog. You can display a few of your latest comments, with a combination of either a gravatar, post excerpt or a link to the author’s homepage.
A list with a few of your latest posts can be helpful to new visitors to your site, who may have stumbled across some of your older content. With your latest posts right in your sidebar, they can easily see what some of the latest things going on around your site are.
We don’t really think that there is much else that can go into a sidebar. Unfortunately, there are some sidebar widgets that don’t really help the user at all, like Flash games.
This is one that we see on a lot of blog sidebars. We don’t think that a poll should be a part of a blog’s sidebar. It just takes up extra space when the poll should really be part of a post.
Something that less often that sidebar polls, but that still a lot, are random quote widgets. For some reason, Wordpress even comes with the Hello Dolly random quote plugin

Now i tell about some SEO tips becaues it’s the most important to inter marketing. Let’s Go.
Disable unnecessary archives
If your blog is a one author blog, or you don’t think you need author archives, use the robots-meta plugin to disable the author archives. Also, if you don’t think you need a date based archive: disable it. Even if you’re not using these archives in your template, someone might link to them and thus break your WordPress SEO…
Thirdly, you’ll want to make sure that if a bot goes to a category page, it can reach all underlying pages without any trouble. Otherwise, if you have a lot of posts in a category, a bot might have to go back 10 pages before being able to find the link to one of your awesome earlier posts…
There’s an easy fix. Jaimie Sirovich wrote Pagerfix, a plugin that helps you make your pagination look like this:
[Better Pagination for
To reach that, install that plugin, and change this section in f.i. your index.php:
Do that in your index.php, your archives.php, and all other archive templates you might have.
Nofollowing unnecessary links
Another easy step to increase your WordPress SEO is to stop linking to your login and registration pages from each and every page on your blog. The same goes for your RSS feeds, your subscribe by e-mail link, etc. Robots Meta has an option to nofollow all your login and registration links. You’ll probably have to go into your RSS links and nofollow those by hand. If you’re using the meta widget, you might want to enable the option in robots meta to replace that with one that has nofollowed links.
Altering your blog’s structure for high rankings
Blogs are spidered so easily due to their structure of categories, tags etc.: all articles are well linked, and usually the markup is nice and clean. However, all this comes at a price: your ranking strength is diluted. They’re diluted by one simple thing: comments.
Pages instead of posts
You’ve probably noticed by now, or you’re seeing now, that this WordPress SEO post is actually… not a post. It’s a page. Why? Well for several reasons. First of all, this article needed to be a “daughter”-page of my WordPress page, to be in the correct place on this blog. Secondly, to rank for the term [WordPress SEO], this article has to have the right keyword density. And that’s where things go wrong. Comments destroy your carefully constructed keyword density.
That’s why I decided to make my most important articles into pages. That way, you can easily update them and do a new post about what you’ve changed.
New wine in an old bottle
If a post on your blog becomes incredibly popular and starts to rank for a nice keyword, like mine did for WordPress SEO, you could do the following:
* create a new page with updated and improved content
* change the slug of the old post to post-name-original
* publish the new page under the old post’s URL, or redirect the old post’s URL to the new URL
* send an e-mail to everyone who linked to your old post that you’ve updated and improved on your old post
* wait for the links to come in, again;
* rank even higher for your desired term as you’ve now got:
o more control over the keyword density
o even more links pointing at the article
o the ability to keep updating the article as you see fit to improve on it’s content and ranking
Some among you will say: I could have 301 redirected the old post to the new one with the same effect. True. Except: you’d lose the comments on the old post, which is in my opinion a sign of disrespect to people who took the time to comment, and 301 redirects take quite a bit of time sometimes. Of course you should treat this technique with care, and not abuse it to rank other products, but I think it can be done in everyone’s benefit. For instance this article: if you came here through a social media site like Sphinn, expecting an article about WordPress SEO, that’s exactly what you got!
Linking to related posts
One way of getting search engines to get to your older content a bit easier, thus increasing your WordPress SEO capabilites a LOT, is by using a related posts plugin. These plugins search through your posts database to find posts with the same subject, and add links to these posts.
There’s a load of these available, but I just use the one that comes with the Simple Tags plugin, as I’ve found that the easiest and best one so far.
Conversion optimization: get those readers to subscribe!
A lot of bloggers still think that because their blog is a blog, they don’t have to optimize anything. Wrong. To get people to link to you, they have to read your blog. And what do you think is easier: getting someone who is already visiting your blog to visit regularly and then link to your blog, or getting someone who visits your blog for the first time to link to your blog immediately? Right.
That’s why conversion optimization is so vitally important to bloggers as well: they need to learn how to test their call to actions on their blog so that more people will subscribe, either by e-mail or by RSS. (Ow btw, if you haven’t subscribed to this blog yet, do it now!)
One of the things I’ve found to be very important, and more bloggers seem to have found this, is that a BIG RSS subscribe button is very important, as is offering a way to subscribe by e-mail. I even offer daily and weekly e-mail subscribe options, using aweber (aff), and have found that people tend to really like those options too.
Another thing to be very aware of is when people might want to subscribe to your blog. If they’ve just finished reading an article of yours, and really liked it, that would be the ideal time to reach them, right? That’s why more and more people are adding lines like this to the end of their posts: “Liked this post? Subscribe to my RSS feed and get loads more!”
Another great time to get people to subscribe is when people have just commented on your blog for the first time, for which purpose I use the awesome comment relish plugin. Which leads me to the next major aspect of WordPress SEO:
Comment optimization: get those readers involved
Comments are one of the most important aspects of blogs. As Wikipedia states:
The ability for readers to leave comments in an interactive format is an important part of many blogs.
Comments are not only nice because people tell you how special you are, or that you made a mistake, or whatever else they have to tell you. Most of all they’re nice, because they show engagement. And engagement is one of the most important factors of getting people to link to you: they show you they care, and they open the conversation, now all you have to do is respond, and you’re building a relationship!
How should you get people to comment
The easiest way of getting people to do anything is: ask them to do it. Write in an engaging style, and then ask your blog’s readers for an opinion, their take on the story etc.
Another important things is your comment links. Is your comment link “No comments »”? Or is it “No Comments yet, your thoughts are welcome »”? Feel the difference? You can change this by opening your index.php template, search for comments_popup_link() and changing the texts within that function.
Bond with your commenters
Another thing to do is thank people when they’ve commented on your weblog. Not every time, because that get’s annoying, but doing it the first time is a very good idea.
Justin Shattuck thought the same, and created the Comment Relish plugin, which I just mentiond, which sends an email after someone has made his first comment. This email is a message you can enter yourself, with for instance your feed URL, and in my case, a newsletter subscribe URL, etc.
Another option, which is a bit less obtrusive / spammy, is to install my comment redirect plugin. This plugin allows you to redirect people who have made their first comment to a specific “thank you” page.
Keeping people in the conversation
Now that people have joined the conversation on your blog, you should make sure they stay in the conversation. That’s why you should install the subscribe to comments plugin, that allows people to subscribe to a comment thread just like they would in a forum, and sends them an e-mail on each new comment. This way, you can keep the conversation going, and maybe your readers will be giving you new angles for new posts.
Off site blog SEO
If you’ve followed all of the above WordPress SEO advice, you’ve got a big chance of becoming successfull, both as a blogger and in the search engines. Now the last step sounds easy, but isn’t. Go out there, and talk to people online.
Follow your commenters
There’s been a movement on the web for a while now that’s called the “You comment – I follow”. They want you to remove the nofollow tag off of your comments to “reward” your visitors. Now I do agree, but… That get’s you a whole lot of spam once your WordPress blog turns into a well ranked blog… What I do advocate though, is that you actually follow your visitors! Go to their websites, and leave a comment on one of their articles, a good, insightful comment, so they respect you even more.
If you think that’s a lot of work, do realize that, on average, about 1% of your visitors will actually leave a comment. That’s a group of people you have to take care of!
Twitter is a cool form of micro-blogging / chatting / whatever you want to call it. Almost all the “cool” people are on there, and they read their tweets more often than they read their e-mail, if you even knew how to reach them through e-mail.
To boot, if you use WordTwit or Twitter Tools, all of your posts can be announced on Twitter, which will usually get you quite a few early readers! People will feel even more happy to comment on Twitter, which might get you into an extra conversation or two.
Find related blogs, and work them
If you want to rank for certain keywords, go into Google Blogsearch, and see which blogs rank in the top 10 for those keywords. Read those blogs, start posting insightful comments, follow up on their posts by doing a post on your own blog and link back to them: communicate! The only way to get the links you’ll need to rank is to be a part of the community.
This guide gives you a lot of stuff you can do on your blog. It goes from technical tips, to conversion tips, to content tips, to conversation tips, and a whole lot in between. There’s a catch though: if you want to rank for highly competitive terms, you’ll have to actually do most of it.
