Beginning in the year 2002, blogs moulded the online marketing world. While most people at that time started with various blogging systems, eventually most of them shifted to WordPress. WordPress has become so much more since a powerful website CMS that emerged from the need for a better blogging systems.

If you read any popular blogging tips online, WordPress is often positioned as a tool that well, creates a blog. But an increasing number of marketers are finding that you can also use it as the most important tool to upon which you can grow a profitable business empire. The most powerful function of WordPress itself lies in its ability to manage large amounts of text, audio and video content. After a dozen pages it becomes difficult to manage a static HTML site. Although you can use template-driven software as well like SBI or DreamWeaver, nothing beats the ease of WordPress.

Using premium blogging tools you can easily transform create a static website, an article directory, a WordPress based membership site system, a complete e-commerce site, an auction sites, a portfolio site and so much more. As a matter of fact you can also just about use it for anything.

Besides that, Search Engine Optimization is another important element. By default, WordPress is pretty good at optimizing and creating SEO friendly content. However you can also get more serious and utilize simple WordPress plugins to further increase your SEO rankings and get better Yahoo or Google rankings.

However the best thing about WordPress is its flexibility. You can easily switch between WordPress themes, and improve its functions by using plugins and even some custom programming. It’s free and have I mentioned before?

If you aren’t using WordPress you should. The learning curve has reduced substantially in the past 3 years. At the moment it’s so easy to use even a six-year old kid can figure it out. To power your online business, go ahead and use WordPress!

Boost Your Blog Traffic with WPSyndicator

I Say Thank You

To All Our Veterans


There is a new plug-in on the market that has fast become the must have tool for bloggers everywhere.  It’s called WPSyndicator and was created by a clever chap named Andy Fletcher.  As you might realize from the name, this plug-in is made to help you syndicate your blog posts in a far easier way than doing it by hand.

What the plug-in does is syndicate an excerpt from your blog post onto up to 15 Web 2.0 properties all in one easy click.  The sites that it posts on are: WordPress, TypePad, Blogger, Vox, LiveJournal, Tumblr, Mulitply, Plurk, FriendFeed, Xanga, Identica, you are, Blellow and Bright Kite.  It will also send a tweet about your latest blog post at the same time.

Now, you do have to take a bit of time in the initial set up of your plug-in.  You need to create accounts at each of the sites, of course.  You can do this right through the WPSyndicator interface as the menu will take you through to all the places that you need to sign up for the various sites.  If you get stuck at all, there are some very handy videos that will guide you through the less obvious spots.  This will take you from 30 minutes to an hour, depending on how fast you type and how fast you can get through it all.

Once the initial set up is completed, it’s push button simple to syndicate your latest post.  And one of the best features is that you can choose which sites to syndicate to with each post.  For example, Identical and Blellow only take certain kinds of content so you wouldn’t want to syndicate a post that will be seen as spam to those sites.  You can easily turn those two sites off before you have WPSyndicator do its thing.

What gets posted to the Web 2.0 sites is an excerpt from your post and you can set the length to whatever you want.  By default, it will grab the first 500 characters which will usually average about 100 words.  With that excerpt, will be a link back to your blog that will be “Read more…” or you can set it to the keyword anchor text you want.  With the micro-blogging sites, such as Twitter, instead of the anchor text, it will have a shortened link.

So what does this mean?  More traffic from those who read your material on the Web 2.0 sites and wish to read the rest of your article.  They’ll gladly click through to your blog to see what else you have to say.  More subscribers, because once they’re there, you will make sure they see your opt-in form, right?  And of course, more backlinks that show the search engines how popular your blog is.
