Choosing the Best WordPress Widgets


 

OH NO. Not WordPress Again!!!

Yes, It’s another piece on WordPress, but I really believe you can never learn enough or be reminded of the power of  Wordpress and all it’s benefits ,

But I am already working on another posting which is NOT wordpress related  (I hope)

Choosing the Best WordPress Widgets

WordPress widgets are extremely popular.
After all, there are hundreds of excellent widgets that you can add to your blog to create a professional looking space.
The difference between a widget and a plugin is not much.
Widgets are very similar to plugins.

You install them like you would a plugin into the activate them from the plugins page.
The difference is that a widget is managed from the widget directory and they are made to be used in the sidebar.

How do you go about choosing the best WordPress ones?
Glad you asked! (you did ask , didn’t you?) It is tough – after all, there are so many,
but let’s start by looking at the best of the best right now.

#1 The Tag Cloud Widget

In the long list of WordPress widgets, this is one that is worth having on every blog.
It displays the tags associated with the post with the most popular being displayed in a larger font
than the less popular tags.
This is also an animated tag cloud widget if you prefer that.
With this one, the cloud appears to be moving.
The tag cloud (both versions) is one of the most popular plugins used.

#2 The Quick Shop Widget

Many consider this to be one of the most valuable WordPress widgets out there.
That’s because it’s a shopping cart for WordPress that gives you the functionality you need
to be able to sell goods and/or services quickly and easily.
It even has PayPal functionality and e-mail functionality built right into it.
This is by far one of the best widget out there, as you can use it to conduct your business
without having to invest large amounts of money.

(I am currently setting up a Digital Download Store using this, it should be completed in a few days}

#3 FV Community News

If you are wondering how this widget could benefit you,
the answer is simple – it can help you get the necessary content on your blog
to make it rate well in the search engines.
For most bloggers, producing articles every day can be hard.
Their readers want a lot more than they can produce.
Doing this manually is very time consuming and it can even be confusing if you are new to blogging.
The FV Community News widget can become your best friend allowing blog visitors
and fans to add to your articles if they feel they have relevant material.
It’s easy to use so take advantage of it.

#4 The Social Slider Widget

This is considered one of the top WordPress widgets.
It lets you add links to various social networking sites and it’s presented in a floating box
at the screen’s left side (usually).
The Social Slider Widget is definitely a plugin that you want to install and take advantage of.

WordPress widgets are worth putting into play on your blog.
It’s a great way to make the most out of your blog,

To make administration easier for you, 

To bring in visitors,

To help your search engine rankings,

And to impress your visitors with a well designed blog.

Until the next time

When I first looked at PLR Monthly I said to myself “oh no, not another PLR product” but to my complete surprise this website really got my attention.

As I sat back and read the sales letter to PLR Monthly, to my surprise I found myself drawn into the page soaking up all the information it was providing, and leaving me with a lot of intrigue as to what these guys were providing.

I always looked upon PLR websites as a bit of a grey area, as the content is not always great and the possibility of using duplicate content is simple. Extra effort is needed to produce a PLR website that actually ticks all the boxes in respect of, fresh, new and quality material.

This is why PLR Monthly caught my attention so much. These guys provide you with all the tools, fresh PLR, graphics, tutorials, sales pages, squeeze pages and much more.

Don’t get Caught With Google Adsense Click Fraud


Don’t get Caught With Google Adsense Click Fraud

Many website owners are getting their Google Adsense account terminated when they have done nothing wrong or deserve the punishment. Considering the money that they are getting from Adsense, they would certainly want to get back into it.

It is that same consideration why the Google Adsense click fraud is thought of and why many people are getting into it.

Click fraud is the act of clicking on ads for the purpose of costing the advertiser money. It is simply the same as paying out cash for false leads. Many people website owners are aware of this fraud and are sharing the same sentiment that this is the one big problem that Adsense is facing.

How do you prevent being involved in this fraud?

Majority of web hosts are offering access logs. Once this is offered to you, it is necessary that you share it with Google as well. This allows them to look for any suspicious activity on your site. Problems like this are very serious and giving them the logs is like saying that you would want to help them in any way you can in solving the problem.

It can also help if you have a click monitoring software. If you do not have one yet, you should try to get one. There is absolutely no major factor preventing you from having one because most of this software is free.

As usual, all the information you have received should be turned over to Google. This is showing Google that you too are fighting against click frauds and are no way a part of it.

Study your server logs and watch for any activity that seems suspicious. Report anything that you may find odd, may it big or small thing.

You may want to consider disabling ads for your own IP address and local geographic area. This will certainly prevent accidents and will not make Google mistake another user as you. You can do through a htaccess file. This will avoid Google mistaking as you clicking on your own ads and be kicked out because of it.

Keep your Adsense off on pop ups and pop unders. Your ads should not be displayed on content sites that promote illegal activity or tampering of the legal rights of other people or business. Included in this are the content that is considered adult and gambling ones. If you think that you may be breaking this rule, immediately remove your content or Adsense from the web page.

Be truthful and confess up to Google about times when you might have clicked on your own ads, whether accidentally or intentionally. Or the times when you have done something that is against the Terms of Service that they are implementing. Be honest about anything that you may have done that is wrong. Confessing is way better than Google learning about it eventually. It would mean eventual termination and no getting back what you have worked so hard for.

Do not tell your family or friends about Adsense on your website. Chances are they may start clicking on them to help you make money without you knowing it. They may be doing more harm to you than help by trying it in the first place.

If ever someone you know chanced upon your Adsense, make sure they understand that they cannot click on your ads under any circumstances. It would be wise to brief them on important things about Adsense and what not to do with them.

Most pay-per-click networks have different measures in hand to protect website owners against click frauds. Other search engines can track more than 50 data points, IP address, browser’s information, user’s session info and pattern recognition. They also have “systems” available that detects fraud. Not to mention the specialized teams monitoring how things are going and helping advertisers stop click frauds.

Google offers suggestion on how to avoid click fraud. Using “negative keywords” can be used to keep your Adsense showing on products and services that are in no way related to yours. Adding tracking Url’s to your links so you can track the traffic coming from Google.

Do not be caught in the Google click fraud. Be aware and be wary.
