• Someone just pointed out to me that my Blogging Category to the left Left Arrowwas VACANT of posts and I just happened to be downloading some cool plugins for the [blog] that YOU should know about, so here goes.


    Plugins have basically made your blog (WordPress anyways) about as capable an engine as any expensive BIG website.


    Apparantely there are these [GEEKS] throughout the world who get a kick out of creating a ‘plugin’, which is literally a zip file that is usually downloaded (for FREE) and then uploaded into your [plugin] directory of your site. Then you click ‘activate’ and VOILA… you are in business. Some require a little bit more of a learning curve than others and usually it is not too hard to find installation instructions and even video tutorials and step by step guides.


    Go to WordPress Plugins and find the latest available. Most of the programmers offer the plugin user to donate a nickel here or there to support their Geek habits. Many of these people are still in college! The Adsense guy has it set up where you can ‘reward’ him with a %age of your earnings. This is JUST for adsense within the posts – a reasonable request considering any earnings are directly a result of his generosity.


    I already have the standard Adsense Deluxe (technical difficulties keep me from showing you it in action here), and Akismet – to avoid spamming comment posters.SEO and Traffic being the latest ‘HOT’ topic around here, I downloaded


    SEO Title Tag – Creates SEO Friendly Title tags,


    Google Sitemap – Creates a Google Sitemap – loved by Google search engines


    Ultimate Tag Warrior – Creates a Tag Cloud,

    and SimpleTags – which add auto-linked Technorati tags to each post, either at the end of the post, or within the body of the post.

    I am ‘moderately’ Tech Savvy – I am comfortable with FTP, and not scared of HTML, PHP, what have you.. so I managed to get all the plugins uploaded and activated.


    However…I still have some WHAT NEXT questions..


    Like I activated the Google Sitemap, but how do I get it so a viewer can see that it exists?

    Like I am placing the proper [TAGS] around my words in my post as suggested with simple tags, but will it really appear at the bottom of this post as technorati tags?? If it DOESNT work, I am not correcting it later – so excuse the random use of []’s.


    Like why AM I having technical difficulties with my Adsense Plugin?? I put in the proper Google Code and all..


    When I have the time… I know all the free resources will be available to me to get it straightened out…. unless YOU can help me??
