Excerpt: Joost de Valk wrote a great WordPress plugin that I'm about to install. From Joost de Valk: http://yoast.com/twitter-analytics/?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=twitter&utm_campaign=twitter has a bunch of tracking parameters on it, and therefore is duplicate … so we may cite a canonical URL in <head> to fix this — <link rel="canonical" href="http://yoast.com/twitter/analytics/"/> In this case it is the only option to do so because Google Analytics requires the page be sent, so it is not an option to simply 301 to the canonical URL afterwards. Originally I had said it was; thanks to mark @ useyourweb for pointing this embarrassing lapse in reason to me. However, with…

Excerpt: Your friendly Captain-obvious-inspired search marketer might argue you shouldn't have done so when you depended on your organic rankings so much — but they're almost certainly vulnerable too. Let's face it. It's just plain difficult to get natural referral traffic when you're ultimately just another guy selling commodities. OK, so don't be just another guy selli … nevermind. They're hypocrites. So what can you do? 1. Move Goods On eBay With Help Of Automation eBay, except for some upfront infrastructure costs and smaller up-front listing costs, is pay-per-conversion. That should make you salivate. Unfortunately, it's…

Excerpt: Getting hacked is a total bummer, right? Right. But you can stop it with this plugin — WordPress Firewall. It won't stop every determined hacker from zapping your blog — but it's definitely worth installing if you're maintaining more than a few blogs. After all, you simply can't upgrade every blog instantly every time a vulnerability is published for WordPress or any of the plugins you've got installed. So this plugin might buy you some much-needed time … and sanity. It investigates web requests with simple WordPress-specific heuristics to identify and stop most obvious attacks. Here is…

Excerpt: Circuit City was a terrible brick-and-mortar store, don't get me wrong — but is it just us that noticed they had one of the best online experiences of any electronics retailer? Great categorization. Search that worked. Faceted search that also worked (mostly). Checkout with pretty context-sensitive illustrations to let you know where your CVV code is — not a #@#$ link that bounces you out! It ran circles around BestBuy's online store for a long time. I think it was still better — but now it's dead. In fact, just last week when writing requirements for an eCommerce…

We added a few things, including requests — 1. Made the automatically-generated CSS neater and probably a little cleaner. 2. Added an option for "Custom" CSS. This lets you fashion your own CSS. View your "/wp-content/plugins/wordpress-seo-pager.php?css=1″ to see the format of the CSS, and then roll your own. 3. Many small bug-fixes. Have any feature requests for the next version? Leave a comment! Download the new version here.

Excerpt: … for spammers, anyway. Upgrading WordPress often might just help! On the other hand, you could still wake up and find out your blog looks like this after a zero-day attack — That's probably a bad thing. But, in fact, many of us in the blogosphere have enjoyed this particular problem. And it's not quite as much fun as the blue pill. In the worst case, it's not just spam, it's badware or viruses. And then Google won't want to cohabit with you ever again. Well, you're still alive, and you're sick of getting attacked. We are, too. So, at least…
