SEO WordSpinner Removed from the WordPress Plugins Directory

Today I found out that the SEO WordSpinner plugin is no longer available via its WordPress Directory page. I emailed WordPress plugin-master Mark Riley asking what was up, and he just emailed me back:

Hi,
There were some complaints about some SEO plugins.
Your plugin was among those checked and given it’s purpose is not suitable for the directory now.

Mark.

If you’re a fan of the SEO WordSpinner plugin, email WordPress now to show your support!

Show Content Only Plugin – A Perfect Keyword Research Companion

Download the Plugin from WordPress.org

Another WordPress SEO Plugin by Katz Web Services

The Show Content Only Plugin enables you to show only a post or page’s content, without sidebars, footers, and other content.

There are many different reasons for wanting to show just the content, but there’s never been such an easy way to do it. This plugin adds a box in the post and page editor that provides you with four links:

  • Content Only
  • Content with Tags
  • Content with Categories
  • Content with Categories & Tags

This is very helpful in conjunction with the Google Keyword Tool, so that Google only analyses the content of your post or page, not the surrounding context as well.

Why use a content spinner?

There are a lot of content spinners out there (I won’t even bother linking to them, most are for spamming, not for SEO). The existing products allow you mass-export articles then submit them across content networks to build links using spammy articles. That is not what this plugin does. This plugin allows you to enhance your site’s SEO by reducing duplicate content.

Google has been improving its handling of duplicate content by implementing use of the canonical tag and updating its algorithm. They don’t punish a site for duplicate content, but having unique content is still better than duplicate content.

Different content in different context

Each of those pages will show the full content or an excerpt (summary) of the content on this page. Each will show a title for this article. The SEO WordSpinner plugin allows you to mix things up so that on each page, users will see different content that means the same thing, therefore avoiding duplicate content issues if done properly.

Add Custom Titles for Tags and Categories in WordPress

The Best WordPress SEO Plugin? A combination of two.

All in One SEO Pack (AIOSEO) is the leader in WordPress SEO plugins. It offers great functionality and simple integration into the process of writing a post. AIOSEO is not a perfect plugin, however, because it lacks some very important functionality:

  • Custom category title tags
  • Custom tag title tags
  • Mass editing of page, post, tag and category title tags/slugs

The plugin that has all of the features above (but lacks AIOSEO features) is SEO Title Tag, an imperfect but elegant solution to the list above.  This article shows how to use both plugins and have them combine forces to create a powerful solution for getting custom titles on all your site’s pages.

Add Canonical Tags to Shopp Plugin for SEO

I am building a store using the Shopp plugin, and I noticed that there are possibilities for duplicate content issues:

  • A product can be accessed both by /shop/{productID} and /shop/{product-slug}
  • A tag can be accessed using /shop/?shopp_tag={tag-uri} and /shop/tag/{tag-slug}
  • A tag can be accessed using /shop/?shopp_category={category-id} and /shop/{category-uri}

Should Google somehow find it’s way into indexing these pages, the value of the identical indexed pages may drop.  Canonical tags aim to remedy this situation, and are implemented by the hugely popular and awesome All in One SEO Pack plugin (see my other SEO tips regarding AIOSEO Pack plugin).

The Shopp plugin does not feature canonical tag support, so here’s a modification you can make that will add support for it without changing any core files in All in One SEO Pack, or in Shopp. Continue reading “Add Canonical Tags to Shopp Plugin for SEO”

Add Custom Taxonomy Title Tags Support to All-In-One SEO Pack

Get control over your custom taxonomy’s Title Tag

With Yoast’s Simple Taxonomies plugin, you can set up a custom categorization system for posts on your site known as a custom taxonomy. When trying to optimize these pages, I realized that the All in One SEO Pack plugin doesn’t have support for custom taxonomies, so it will not format the title properly. I’ve slapped together some code to improve the formatting of the title tag. See this code in action. Continue reading “Add Custom Taxonomy Title Tags Support to All-In-One SEO Pack”

SEO implications for updating your website

SEO Updates cause white knuckles!

Will a website redesign hurt my rank?

When I am working with a client that already has a website, one of the first questions I am asked is “How will redesigning my website affect my rank?” Here’s what to expect when launching your new website:

Your website will take a hit in the SERPs for 20-30 days

SEO results chart for a redesigned website
After updating a website, you can expect ~25 days of your ranking going down. I call it the "white knuckle month," but I've noticed the website always ranks better once the period is over.

Without fail, I’ve found that when I launch a new website, move a website to a new domain, redesign or make significant structural changes to a site, the website will drop in rank for 3-4 weeks. Continue reading “SEO implications for updating your website”

SEO Randomizer: Save the Value of Your SEO'd Links

Search engines attribution link value is falling for SEOs and web designers.

Update: Now use the SEO WordSpinner plugin to implement this concept.
Use the get_seo_spin() PHP function in your theme’s footer.php file.

Footer links are dropping in SEO value

How to stay relevant while getting great links

As a web designer and SEO, I place links in the footers of most of my designs. Clients don’t mind (I always request the link), and it’s a high-quality link. Most small web design and SEO companies do.  Footer links have become very spammy, however, and sites try to stuff as many links there as possible.

SEOmoz has an article about footer link optimization and claims that

Footer links may be devalued by search engines automatically
Check out the evidence – Yahoo! says they may devalue footer links, Bill Slawski uncovers patents suggesting the same and anecdotal evidence suggests Google might do this (or go further) as well. Needless to say, if you want to make sure your links are passing maximum value, it’s wise to avoid the footer (particularly the footer class itself).

The era of the PageRank-passing footer links are coming to an end. The search engines have a good reason for devaluing the links — but how can we get the juice back?

Let’s consider the following issues:

Nofollow SEO for your WordPress Functions

Link Condom
Pretty crude idea of nofollow, isn't it?

While working on a recent website, I became frustrated by the lack of nofollow support in many WordPress functions.  Make that, most WordPress functions.

There are a few WP functions that I wanted to add nofollow to, so here’s a list and a download link: Continue reading “Nofollow SEO for your WordPress Functions”
