How To Stop Spam in WordPress

One of the most annoying things in WordPress (and not only) is the continuous spam. The screenshot on the left side was taken from one of my blogs which in less than 2 years has received more than 51 thousand spam comments (thats actually 69 comments per day and thankfully that blog was just an experiment from my part). In this article I will write how you can have a nice looking spam free blog.

1.Akismet

The very first thing to do is activate AKISMET, it is really crucial and will catch most of the spam coming from various suspicious locations. You should have an activation key from WordPress.com (you get it after you signup)

2.Comments Cleaner

Most of the people comment on blogs with the sole purpose of getting a backlink. What if you remove that? Comments Cleaner does exactly what it says! You have the possibility to check one of the options below:

  • Remove Author’s URL
  • Remove HTML Tags
  • Remove BBCode tags
  • Remove plain text links

3. Remove Author URL box

Another possible solution to stop spam is by removing totally the author’s url box. Most of the spamming comments are done automatically by using various bots so it wont be able to locate the field to populate it with the spam url :)

If you want to remove it, then go at Appearance -> Editor -> Comments.php and then locate the following lines of code:

<label for=”url”>Website</label> <input type=”text” name=”url” id=”url” value=”<?php echo esc_attr($comment_author_url); ?>” size=”22″ tabindex=”3″ />

 

If you have any questions or inquiries do not hesitate to use the comments area below (don’t try to spam it, it wont pass :P)

WP Turbo Review

Even though I’ve always been against autoblogs because most of the time they do not work properly, I was checking a site which was quite interesting and caught my attention. After a bit of research I found they were using wp turbo. Here’s an introduction video of what this piece of software does:

Alright here’s a description taken from their website:

WPTurbo is a new premium plugin for WordPress that allows you to create powerful niche sites which create content, update themselves automatically and earn you income each month from affiliate programs.

The plugin has a powerful system to allow you to create your own templates and target by keyword and add filters so your sites are unique to you.

Search engine love these sites as they are regularly updated when you choose, from every hour to every week. You just have to set them up once and they will carry on adding content without you.

 

wp turbo review

I tested it myself and had excellent results and I started gaining traffic since the third day after my site got indexed. The power of wp turbo lays on the configuration you do and what modules you use.

So if you are looking to make some extra passive income I would strongly recommend using it, you are going to thank me later on, oh and by the way you can use this discount code WPAFLAUNCH678 and get a 10 % discount.

Continuity, The Secret Formula To Successful Blogging

I was reading an old post (probably 2006) at Yaro’s blog, Entrepreneurs-Journey and was looking at the comments. I clicked on 2-3 on the commentators sites and what I found were just some parked pages. I felt a bit sorry for those guys who started something before 3 years and couldn’t keep it up. Even if they didn’t know what to write, at least it would have been much more profitable to keep the site active rather than just park it or let the domain name expire

The problem with most of the bloggers (especially the ones teaching others or writing parkedtutorials) is that they get bored really quickly from their blogs. Even though you might not have anything good to write or share with your readers, at least pay renew your domain name and your hosting for a couple more years.

From some personal research I have done, most of the blogs which were opened in the last 2-3 years receive more traffic from the search engines and hence they have more subscribers.

What most of you don’t understand is that, only a small percentage of the world population is using the internet wisely and even a smaller percentage knows webmaster related stuff. If your blog would be up and living, even if you wouldn’t update it anymore you would still get organic traffic from your previous posts.

Understand that the new generation (which is now 7-10 year old) doesn’t know anything about affiliate marketing or other specific webmaster topics. They would be using different ways to find the need information (search engines, social bookmarks, etc ..) to become webmasters or even affiliate marketers. So they will need guides and tutorials which you have written before but just because you neglected to pay $10 for another year you lost all your writings and all your tutorials.

Conclusion

Blogging is like growing a plant, more you take care, more it will grow and produce some wonderful flowers. If you start a blog, make sure you do it correctly and write about what you know better but never let your dream die, if you aren’t making money just because someone didnt click on your affiliate banner, don’t worry, in the coming years someone will click but until then … you better pay your hosting & domain name ;)

What To Blog About When You Are Out of Ideas

I bet that almost all the bloggers have faced difficulties finding new ideas what to write about and due to lack of imagination or content they haven’t updated their blogs for a long period. Now since you are on a specific niche, I would not recommend you post useless posts or paid reviews, it would just harm your loyal readership.

It is true that I haven’t been blogging for a long time but that’s not because I don’t know what to blog about, but because my time is extremely limited and yet again I try to take care of this blog (without doubt as it has my name ;)

So you are logged in and you have just clicked “Add New” post and everything is white and you cant concentrate or you just don’t know what to write about.

The solution is plain simple, check out webmaster forums (i assume you have a MMO blog or webmaster blog) and see what are different users asking.

Thats a good idea and not only you post one more article in your blog but you also get another visitor which you know perfectly that he is interested in what you have written

From my personal experience, someone was asking over at NamePros forums how you could make money via blogs. Now it is true that there are thousand of articles which already have explained how you can generate revenue with blogs,  I still wrote a tutorial and told him on a private message that everything he wanted to know was already posted in an article.

Not only that, but I opened a thread as well on NamePros so everyone could share their ideas and of course, at the bottom of the article I added the source (my blog link)

Result !? See the screenshot below

How To Generate Cash From Blogs

So as you can see, by a simple article I got more than 5,500 views and most of them also clicked on my signature and checked what other articles I had on my blog

Conclusion

If you dont have what to write about, just visit different big forums (specifically Digital Point) and look for different questions being asked. It will never ever get saturated as tens or even hundreds of questions are being asked per day.

If you liked this article, dont hesitate to subscribe and read my coming posts, I’m sure you gonna like them as I am preparing to launch some contents … until then … have a nice day ;)
