Tutorial: WordPress for Internet Marketers

WordPress, THE OpenSource Blogging Software is an excellent tool for internet marketers. By now many of the so called internet-marketing gurus have recognized this and new websites are blooming everywhere which show how to best use WordPress – of course this information will cost you a few bucks … – new eBooks for WordPress are being published, which serve as a teaser and offer little content but are a page by page upsell preparation process for a membership site, a costly backstage pass, etc…
If there is also another way – if you know how – and which ‘pay-for’ ressources are actually worth the buck? Read on…

First of all you have to bring WordPress onto your server, i.e. your own domain with php and MySQL is a prerogative. I won’t go deeper into where and how you can find the best deals; there are many offers out there and it depends more on your likes and dislikes or on you individual targets to find the right fit.
How you go about installing WP you can view in this tutorial for beginners and intermediates alike; credits to Guido W. Stiehle, www.thejunglemarketer.com

Then the whole thingie should be pimped so that it does the internet marketing job well; I will skip the dtails of the ins and outs of these tweaks here; only so much: depending on the business model used there are different ways which aim to get as much traffic as possible to the site.
There are lots of different opinions on what is required; watch out and keep an eye on your money, chances are that you spend more than necessary – a clever marketer can make money from almost everything…
The tools (WordPress plugins), that I am using and that are introduced in this list are all free but for one.
An excellent ressource for your further WordPress research is the Codex and you can find many plugins here.
My listing is in alphabetical order, not sorted by subject – so let’s start:

  • 1. Adsense Deluxe: integrate Google Ads in your site; this one is really slick…
  • 2. AutoLinks: define your own keywords which automatically turn into links in your post…
  • 3. AutoPost: Posts your articles at the date you set; this lets you fill up your blog over the weekend and your articles then show up at the predefined date. This one is not open source.
  • 4. Customizable Post Listings: Creates a list of links to recent articles; see an example on this site top left…
  • 5. EzStatic: Makes it easy to create static pages in WordPress…
  • 6. FileManager: A filemanager with a graphical UI; file- and picture-handling the way we are (almost) all used to…
  • 7. Google Sitemap Generator: Creates and manages your Google sitemap and pings Google after every update…
  • 8. NoPingWait: For uninterrupted editing of content; pings are performed in the background and you can edit away without that regular coffe break…
  • 9. Polyglot: Makes wordpress a multilingual CMS by using simple tags, that you insert in your posts…
  • 10. SmartUpdate Pinger: Pings only when it is supposed to ping…
  • 11. SubscribeMe: Turns your feeds into nice SubscribeMe links…
  • 12. WP-Amazon: Easy and fast inserting Amazon-Links in posts, just like this one:
    Professionelle PHP 5-Programmierung
  • 13. WordPress Database Backup: no explanation necessary :-) I heard that this one has made it into the new WordPress core – congrats skippy…
  • 14: WordPress email notification plugin oder subscribe2: Users can subscribe to email notifications about new posts…
  • 15. xfish meta: Gives you an opportunity to add your own keywords and metatags to your posts….

And for all of those expecting lots of traffic, there ist WP-Cache 2. It caches your pages and delivers content much faster that the php-script could ever do.

Find one variation over this theme as an example at beginnermillionaire.com; they list a whole number of plugins, with some costly ones among them…

Besides the link above, you can find video tutorials covering WordPress at Brandon Hong’s site: www.wordpressvideos.com and at Sherman Hu’s:
It is well worth watching his 22 teaser videos which are free and then making up your own mind…

     ( 2012.02.14 23:43 ) : I must express some aprtpciaeion to you for rescuing me from such a crisis. Just after surfing around through the the net and getting thoughts which are not productive, I was thinking my entire life was done. Being alive devoid of the strategies to the difficulties you have resolved by way of your good article is a critical case, as well as ones which may have in a negative way damaged my career if I had not noticed your web blog. Your own personal talents and kindness in taking care of all things was tremendous. I don’t know what I would’ve done if I hadn’t come upon such a step like this. I can also at this time relish my future. Thanks a lot so much for this impressive and results-oriented guide. I won’t hesitate to propose the sites to any person who needs direction on this area.

     ( 2012.02.21 01:38 ) : Als Grfcnder, Selbste4ndiger, Freiberufler und Unternehmer kf6nnen Sie bei Versicherungs-Beitre4gen richtig Geld spearn. Existenzgrfcnder kf6nnen bei vielen Gesellschaften bis zu 50% Rabatt im ersten Firmenjahr erhalten nachfragen lohnt sich also. Als Patient mit einer Privaten Krankenversicherung lassen sich bspw. locker bis zu mehrer hundert Euro im Monat einspearn und Sie verbessern auch noch Ihren Status in der Arztpraxis oder im Krankenhaus, da Sie nicht weiter dem Leistungskatalog der gesetzlichen Krankenversicherung unterliegen. Aber auch bei Berufsunfe4higkeit, Unfall oder der Absicherung Ihrer Rente (Rfcrup) lohnt sich immer ein Versicherungsvergleich mehrerer Gesellschaften. Auch sollten Sie die Kosten der Absicherung Ihres Unternehmens durch Betriebshaftpflicht-, Glas-, Rechtsschutz-, KFZ- und Inhalte-Versicherung im Griff haben. Vergleichen Sie daher kostenlos und testen Sie, wie hoch Ihr Einsparungspotential bei gleichen oder besseren Leistungen ist! Mehr als 30 Gesellschaften mit fcber 2.500 Tarifvarianten werden in den kostenlosen Vergleichen von den Partnern von jetzt-praemien-senken.de einbezogen.

    Then we wouldn’t have Colorado, Chicago or other chaos.Black men make them wihotut marriage. White men are starting to do that as well. But white men also make them IN marriage and then leave the family and make a new family and forget about the other children from the previous marriage, two, three and four times. Yes, I am saying it. Women can’t raise boys to be men. WIthout men raising men, the next generation will have none.What is happening in the USA? Waiting for the irresponsible men to start making excuses.

    Hier noch eine Ergänzung: Ab sofort für mich ein Standard-Plugin bei jeder Wordpress Installation: BackUpWordPress. Bisher die einfachste und schnellste Möglichkeit, ein komplettes Worpress-Blog inkl. Datenbank regelmässig zu sichern…
