How To Reduce Spam Commenting On A Wordpress Blog

Does it really seem to be impossible to reduce spam comment from a blog? Or do you think that there is nothing you can do to reduce it?

Actually to stop spam commenting finally is a very hard task, but it can be done. Anyway my topic is not covering “How to stop spam commenting finally”, rather “How to reduce spam commenting”.

This is very easy to do, with the measure of some important plugin you can reduce spam commenting. I would like to give you some plugin you can use to do that and also show you how to install those plugin’s for them to work with your blog.

Also before I give you the list of those plugin’s I would also like to tell you one thing that causes spam commenting to increase on your blog.

The number one thing that causes that is because your site has been index on Google and you have also installed the sitemap plugin on your site.

If this two thing has not been done on your blog your site won’t get much spam comment.

For instance; when I created my first blog, by then it wasn’t index on Google I do get comment but not spam comments. Some weeks after I Indexed it on Google I started getting spam comments till the day a discovered the plugin’s that I could use to stop the spam comment. I never rest because I do get more than 50 spam comments per day, but after I installed those plugin’s it minimized.
These are the plugin’s you can use to minimize the spam comment on your blog.

1) conditional captcha: Using a Conditional Captcha Helps a lot in reducing spam comment from your blog, what you need is to log in to your Administrator account, then go to add plugin, enter “CONDITIONAL CAPTCHA” in the search box, use the very first one that the search brought.

Caution: Do not install any other thing rather that Conditional Captcha.

2) Use Akismet For Your Wordpress Site: Akismet which is also known as Automattic, is a well know wordpress plugin, it is a spam filtering service. It filters back spam comment from a blog and spam trackback ping.

Akismet was launched in the year 2005, this plugin is a product of Automattic. You can install this plugin by going to add new plugin type “AKISMET” install it then get the API key for it to work on your computer.
Note: You must have the API key before you can use the Akismet spam protector.

3) Turn Off Comment on your site: This can also help you reduce the spam commenting on your Blog. Although it is not really necessary for you to turn off the comment on your blog because this two listed above plugin’s can reduce the spam commenting on your blog.

If you really want to be getting people’s comment about how your site is then you can leave the comment on, but they can also use the contact page to tell you what they have for you.

How to optimize your Wordpress Blog for SEO

Posted On // Leave a Comment

I love WordPress, and maybe you too. WordPress makes me easy to optimize my blog to appear at the top of the search results. If I say about optimization of this post then this process may take much time on any other blog platform but in case I prefer WordPress, then it will take much less time because I can customize many elements of SEO on page optimization easily. Thus saving my blogging time.
WordPress SEO

WordPress SEO#1: Initial Settings

1. Title Tag:
You can access it by going to the dashboard, click on settings and then select General. There you can write the title of your blog. Be sure to include your keywords there.

2. Description:
Still in the same menu. You can enter a description of your site. Short course, do not forget to use keywords. 
(Note: in addition to these things, you can also include a Meta Tag Description etc..)

3. Permalinks Settings:
Setting your permalinks to SEO Friendly. By default WordPress permalinks are
http://blogname/?p=123. You can change it by accessing the Settings and click on permalinks. Choosing the type of permalinks that lets you enter keywords. I like to choose [postname].

4. Choosing a Theme:
Another thing I like about WordPress is choosing theme from a large number of options. You can choose as per your choice either free of paid as many themes are getting uploaded daily. I like the theme of simple and fast loading time like Swift. OR in other words theme which comes with built-in SEO settings and which is SEO friendly.

WordPress SEO # 2: Optimizing Performance

1. SEO Plugin

Now, to optimize the functions of WordPress, you will need a few plugins. There are many SEO plugins available for Wordpress and you may get confused. Do not worry, you can refer to my another post
5 SEO Plugins for Wordpress ( also I am writing some essential plugins you may choose from: 

a. All in One SEO 
b. Broken Link Checker 
c. SEO Smart Links 
d. W3 Total Cache 
e. Yet Another Related Posts Plugin (YARP)

2. Use Post Excerpts

By using post excerpt you can avoid duplicate content. Duplicate content not only be assessed from outside the site, on the site as well. In addition to the show post excerpts you also cut anchor text (internal linking) to text Read More. Few themes offers Post Excerpts by default.

3. Create Google only index

By using SEO plugins such as All in SEO Pack or WordPress SEO, you can make the google spiders to index your posts focus. I do not like to involve much less post category tags, as risky because of the duplicate content problem internal blog. And I do not download copy and paste the writing of others.

Ok, actually WordPress is very good for SEO, a lot of advantages. However, it will all be useless if you do not understand basic SEO techniques. That means you need to optimize it further, such as entering a keyword and off page optimization. 

Hopefully it was helpful for you.

Publish your Google Docs into you WordPress Blog

Posted On // Leave a Comment

Google Docs is an online service provided by the Google.  Using Google Docs you can easily manage your spreadsheet, documents, presentation and forms without paying anything. Using Google Docs you can publish documents into your WordPress blog. You can publish your Google Docs document into the WordPress either by using embed code or by copy pasting them into your blog. Before sharing the document you must check the privacy of your document. If your document is in private mode then you can’t share it. So to share the document change it’s privacy mode into public mode. The Process of sharing your document depends on the document type. Now I will explain you the process of sharing Google Docs document with the WordPress blog.

Sharing Of Google Docs using Embed Code

To publish your spreadsheet into your WordPress blog just open your spreadsheet and click on the “share button “situated on top right corner of your Google Docs page. Then you will get “publish as a web page” option, just click on it. After clicking on “publish as web page” option you will get a window on your screen. You will see drop down list named “sheet to publish”, using this drop down list you can select any number of sheet to be published. If you want to publish the entire sheet then select the “all sheets” option. Just below that drop down list you will get check box if you want that whenever you modify the actual sheet your published sheet reflect those changes then select this checkbox else leave it. Now you will get another drop down list named “get a link to be published data”, just select “html to embed in a page” option if you want the embed code for this Google Docs. After selecting the option in the drop down list you will get a embed code just copy that code and use it in your WordPress blog. I have explained the process of publishing of spread sheet. But to share forms, presentations and other type of document just find the “publish to web option” it will generate an embed code for you, and using this embed code you can use your documents any where in your WordPress blog.

Sharing Of Google Docs using XML-RPC

To share your Google Docs with the WordPress blog just login on your WordPress account then under this site you will get the “writing” option. After clicking on this option you will get setting and in setting just mark the XML-RPC option. Then go and login in your Gmail Docs account and go to the setting option. In the setting option you have to write your display name and then click on “edit info” link. You will get a popup on your screen. Select the “my Own server/custom “option as Existing blog service. Choose “MetaWeblog API “as your API, enter the URL for the WordPress blog on URL option, give your WordPress Blog’s username and password then blog id and at the end select the “check the Include the documentation title when posting” option and click on “test” button. If your all the setting are correct then it will show a popup with ok message else with an error message. Now you can use your Google Docs on your WordPress blogs.

 Sharing of External files 

To share any external file just uploads the file and share it using previous methods.

    Summary: The Google Docs is best service for creating online documents and WordPress is one of the best blogging services. So we can integrate both the services to get high secure and effortless method for our blogs.

    Top 5 Ways to Naturally Build Links

    Posted On // Leave a Comment
    Link Building
    In the world of SEO everyone is looking for links. Some are better than others, and some are harder to get. There is seemingly an endless amount of ways to start building some links, which is good news. The problem is, that building links can be hard work and you may not have enough time to work at link building on a day to day basis. In the perfect world everyones link building process would be natural. A natural link is something that is built without putting in extensive work to get your website's name out there. The funny thing is, although these make link building easier, the initial work you put in, may be a lot harder. Here are the top 5 ways to naturally build links.
    Number 5 - Providing Stimulating Blog Posts
    If you are looking to have a successful website, then blogging is a good place to start. Blogging not only gives you an outlet to provide news, and topics about your website, but also allows you add content easily. If you have an article that is particularly striking, then you will find people linking in so that so that others may read it too. If you have some writing skills, blogging is a great way to naturally build links. 
    Number 4 - Provide Something Free
    Everyone loves the four letter word "free." Providing something for free that people will appreciate or enjoy is a great way to start seeing people link back to your site. It can be anything really. Free tips, free coupons, free reviews, free e-book, etc. When you provide something of value, for free, people will naturally link to your page. 
    Number 3 - Build Relationships
    If you are to build solid relationships between yours and others sites then people will naturally start pointing traffic your way. You can do this a number of ways. Commenting on blog  posts in a truly engaging manner. Do not just comment something without even reading. You can also personally exchange emails and talk with sites sharing your various tips or articles. You can even link back to sites that you have a good relationship with. Building strong relationships is just like building links. 
    Number 2 - Infographics
    Inforgraphics are a great way to have sites naturally link back to your site. The only thing that matters is that they have to be good. They must provide detailed information, have some humor, or simple provide something that people will like. Once the sharing begins, it can take off exponentially. A good infographic can be worth hundreds of links. 
    Number 1 - Content
    You probably guessed this would be number one, because content is still king. Quality content is what people are constantly looking for on the internet. If you have it, people will absorb it. Sites love to point people in the right direction to quality content. Providing quality content that is unique, and presented in a user friendly manner may be the hardest thing to do on the web. However, investing in quality content is your best bet. With quality content, everything else will simply fall into place. 
    Everyone needs their links. Natural link building can be a lot of work at first, but it will all pay off. You can obviously try other methods but these are by far the most tried and tested tactics that show results. Be creative, and you will have better luck. Don't forget that every link should be backed up with high quality content.
