I am currently booking my spring/summer calendar for conferences and speaking events. If you know of anything I should be speaking at, let me know!
I have a proposal in for “Show Me The Blog” (St. Louis, Oct 21/22), and am working on proposals for WordCamp Columbus (July 17/19) and WordCamp Chicago (July 30/21).
I also have tickets to attend the Warrior Forum (Internet Marketing) Event (Raleigh, NC June 11/12) and hope to see some of you there!
PS: I’m holding off on part 3 & 4 of the wp affiliate link management series until next week so you have time to digest this week’s training!
This week we begin the journey into an in-depth look at affiliate link management for WordPress bloggers…
Learning To Cloak and Track Your Affiliate Links is important for profiting with affiliate marketing. This is the first post in a multi part series that will help you learn this valuable skill.
Now we take a look at two versatile, free WP plugins that can help simplify link management, and one serves double duty to help us improve our SEO.
These 2 posts are the first in a series and I call them to your attention as this week we will take a look at some other alternatives including a premium solution that I depend on. I would suggest not installing anything until you’ve decided which solution is best for you based on the series.
Be sure to catch parts 3 & 4 next week!
Improve Your Home Page With Post Thumbnails.
There are quite a few themes available that do not automagically support post thumbnails.
Even Thesis, which supports WordPress thumbnail images, can be too fiddly for a lot of bloggers.
Be sure to check out the plugin “Thumbnail for Excerpts” if your theme does not include thumbnails in the homepage excerpt.
You can learn more here.
If you’re running heavy on plugins be sure to reduce your numbers of plugins before adding another. I am currently shifting to using the wp thumbnail function, which is not as easy to use, due to my plugin load.
