Stephan Spencer’s Scatterings: Web Marketing Blog

Stephan’s blog is a pure gold mine for those that are used to reading between the lines. Needless to say, if you’re in the online business train a visit to his blog should become part of your daily habits. Others charge heaps of money for the kind of advice and insight information he gives for free.

Relevant incoming links are the lifeblood of SEO. Thus it is very important when you do maintenance tasks on your website – such as changing the Permalink structure in your WordPress blog – to make sure old URLs still work.

There are a lot of techniques that help users access old URLs, but only one of them is pretty effective for preserving whatever link gain you’ve accumulated. And that is the use of 301 redirects. This technique can be applied to any kind of website, not just blogs.

To make sure your PR isn’t lost when you restructure old links, stick a 301 redirect from the old URL to the new one. And the easiest way to do that is by using rewrite rules in your .htaccess.

TIP: Since 301 redirects pass the accumulated link gain, think what will happen if you use them for 2 or more old URLs and set the redirect target from all of them to the same destination URL. This technique can be used as a quick and effective way to boost a new page Rank to the sum of the link popularity of all old pages that now redirect to it.

As with any SEO technique, over-doing it can hurt your website. But used responsibly it can provide the extra advantage in front of your competitors.

 

By default, WordPress lacks the ability to send emails to registered users. This plugin was created to fill the gap by allowing you to send emails to your blog users.

More details are available on the WordPress Send Private Email plugin page on my blog.

To prevent abuse this powerful mass mailing functionality is available only to users with Administrator role. This can be changed quite easily if need be, for instance to allow all Editors or greater to use the plugin. Just let me know if you need it, and I’ll modify it for you.

Once activated it adds a new submenu called Write Private Email under the Write menu in the blog management area.

Simple, powerful and very convenient to use.

All empires were at first only in one man’s vision. Your IQ doesn’t matter. Your age doesn’t matter. Your religion doesn’t matter. Your education doesn’t matter. Just believe in you, believe in your dream, and act to make it happen.

Don’t just say you believe. Feel it within every cell of your body, visualize your path to success and you walking every step towards it. Then one morning you’ll wake up and realize you’re already there.

you can. You can. YOU CAN. YOU CAN!

 

There are three kinds of people.

  1. Those who do.
  2. Those who watch them doing.
  3. … and those who have no idea what the heck happened.

Which one are you?
