These 50+ training videos about WordPress are so good, that we offer them to our paid consulting clients, and I also bought the resale rights.
If you’re a paid member here at SEO Automatic, you already have access to free WP training videos, but if you’re not, and you’re trying to learn the ins and outs of WordPress, then you should check these out.
As of this morning, I’ve removed all of my domains from ManageWP, not because I was unhappy, but because I could get pretty much the same thing for free with MainWP.
A blog post without images just doesn’t have the same impact as one with an image, and it looks boring.
Same goes for general website development – you’ve got to have some sort of graphic, and there’s no shortage of places to find clip art.
Few things are as important as content, and it’s always a dilemma finding and keeping a consistent and reliable source of well written articles.
Whether you’re trying to promote your own plumbing business, or whether you’re an internet marketing agency managing properties for clients, you’re always going to struggle to find good authors.
Contrary to popular belief, Internet experts are not immune to having their websites hacked, and I am certainly no exception. We manage over 300 WordPress sites, and I confess that we have had dozens of sites hacked or defaced over the years.
update Jan 2013 – If there are links out there on sites that are stealing your content, you may be better off letting them flounder on their own, and not giving them the boost this plugin offers. They’re competitors and scrapers, and Google doesn’t like them. My strategy changed a bit, and I prefer to let low quality backlinks die, so I no longer recommend this plugin.
Update – In early 2012 this plugin began causing errors in IE8 – Don’t get it!
A few months ago, I was looking for a way to hide content on a WordPress post or page, that would only be revealed after you got yourself a “Like”.
I need to warn you about our experience with a product called EZ WP Cloner, distributed by Kenneth Reno and Oliver Bowen.
We’ve long looked for a way to easily, reliably, and efficiently move and backup WordPress sites, and after I found an absolutely fantastic WordPress cloning product in November, we abandoned development of our own.
Yesterday WordPress released a security patch that fixes a huge vulnerability that they discovered in the code, so we pretty much dropped everything, and did nothing but upgrades all day.

Getting the sites, databases, and files copied and safely stored elsewhere has been possible, but it’s always been a somewhat complicated process, especially the “restore” process.
