Wordpress Plugins

Google (and other search engines) love WordPress because the code is very clear and simple. With the coding, search engines find it very easy to read and index a site’s content. Additionally, each page, post, and image can have its own title, description, and meta keyword. Each aspect can also be optimized for specific keywords to allow for very precise search engine

When using WordPress, it is crucial for you to use the best plugins to
optimize and protect your website. From my own experience, here are the
best wordpress plugins for you to install :

Additionally, you can view a live log file of your backup, and the plugin also has an interactive Help & Auto Settings for web server configurations.

We managed to find this plugin which does a great job in keeping spam under control.You don’t need captcha or check a moderation queue, since Anti-spam takes care of it from the background. It is slowly moving towards dethroning Akismet from its title of “the best anti comment spam” Plugin for WordPress websites.

Better WP Security : Safeguarding your WordPress website from hackers is very important these days. Better WP Security plugin helps in securing your website to a great extent. When installed, it creates a separate section on your WordPress dashboard with loads of options to work with.

Want to be a Professional Blogger.?

First what professional really means to you.? What does it mean by Professional Blogger.? and, more importantly, Who is a problogger.?

For some bloggers producing a huge Traffic, Comments, following a huge RSS Feed Subscribers and from this generating more amount of revenue/income is know to be a Professional Blogger. But Some totally disagree with this. For them Blogging is much more about passion, dedication and the amount of study, research and time the person gives is called to a ProBlogger.


What is a Professional?

Know you can check on online dictionaries or google them, Here is what has to say.:

“According to Merriam Webster there are seven related, but varied, definitions of “profession“. The two that are most commonly applied to bloggers include:

  1. characterized by or conforming to the technical or ethical standards of a profession
  2. participating for gain or livelihood in an activity or field of endeavor often engaged in by amateurs (a professional golfer).”

A Pro Blogger is a Blogger by Profession

According to :

“I think we could then apply the second definition to blogging – that is, the small percentage of bloggers who make their livelihood with their trade could be considered bloggers by profession. So while competence is obviously a factor, the fact that a person makes their living with a given pursuit would make them a professional. Being a blogger by profession means that they make their living by blogging. A problogger should be ranked by his ability to generate revenue with his blogging activity.”

I think making blogging as your main profession is quite difficult to opt in today’s period. Except the fact that you’re writing on a subject/niche which is interacts a huge interest by the people and had a huge following. This can turn your blog audience/visitors to generate revenue and you can rely somewhat to make your living. Another fact is you should have great skills to build a strong online presence of your blog, and in many cases, of yourself as you’re behind the content. You should know about the Services and Tools that make your blog Awesome and Best unlike the rest. Newbie Bloggers aren’t able to do so quickly but it is necessary to know the measures to be a ProBlogger.

How to Optimize Your Blog for Mobile Devices

These days, a perfect website is not just determined by how it looks in your laptop browser. With the rapidly increasing market share of mobile devices – both smart phones and tablets – it is important to design a website that takes the particular constraints of these devices into account. Due to different size and capabilities of a mobile devices, an elegantly designed website might be frustrating and difficult to navigate on mobile. Follow the tips bellow to learn how you can optimize your blog for mobile devices.

Mobile Optimization

Make a mobile home

Fortunately, there are some easy things that you can do in order to make your blog mobile friendly. The first, of course, is to set up a default mobile URL, so as not to sacrifice the time you put into your standard version. Most mobile URLs start with an “m.” or end with a backslash “mobile”. By creating this URL, when someone tries to access your site on a mobile device, they will be redirected to the mobile version, allowing you to easily maintain two separate designs, so that users on a standard browser can still appreciate the regular version of your blog.

Large icons, small photos

With that set up, you need to consider the design for your mobile page. Some key things are your click able icons. They need to be big and easy to read, so that someone navigating on a touch screen can select them easily, without accidentally accessing a page they do not want. It is also a good idea to have your mobile site be more text heavy than image. Large images can often overwhelm a mobile device and fail to load properly, resulting in a strangely formatted and incomplete page. Also, with formatting, keep in mind that it can be easier to have all of your text center justified to guarantee it will be read on any device, and not lost off to the side.

Don’t use Java and Flash

Many mobile devices don’t support Java and Flash, so try to avoid using them on your blog’s mobile version.

The key is in the template

Keep in mind that you do not need to redesign every single page. If you have a site with multiple pages that are similarly formatted – for example a blog, e-commerce site, or free classifieds site – spend your time designing a single template, and then apply it across the board.

Mobile optimization can be really beneficial for your blog, as more people will be able to access you blog, even when they’re on the go. This can help you to increase the number of followers to your blog. To get an idea of how an efficiently optimized mobile website looks like, check this mobile free classifieds site.

How to Choose a Domain name for your Blog

The problem, today, with the domain names are that most of them are already registered. (That’s why i choose gr8blogs) it is not i dont love my domain name or my work but there is a lot to know before you actually make a decision to buy a domain name. Here are some tips to remember before you buy a domain name.

Types of sub domains : .com (Commercial), .net (Network), .org (Organization), .biz (Business) and some are categorized according to Country wise like .in (Indian)

For Personal Blog – It is not necessary for you to think a lot if you’re choosing a domain name for your personal blog. People often register the domain under their own name. like (
The .me sub domain is used, nowadays, for personal blogs.

Note : Before you think of registering any domain name you should check on the web if it is Available.! Yes, even if you are choosing for your personal blog. The reasons behind this is to protect your online presence and avoiding confusion among two or more people having the same names and/or having same initials.

I recommend also to do a Google Search. If you find any such similarities which can mislead your audience you should choose another domain name.
At this stage the sub domains can be useful but, sometimes, it is more chances than taking a chance.

Secondly, If you are registering for your business, company or organization you should go through every procedure as said above and, plus, search on the Social Networks, Groups, Pages, Communities, Accounts of twitter and pinterest named as same as your professional identity.

This rather create a negative impact on the customers and adds the sense of duplication.

As soon as you find one register your domain name before it’s been grasp by someone else then add a hosting.
