  1. We have 100 blogs now, we are posting unique articles with unique urls in them, with anchored text, we are looking for some kind of wordpress dashboard, that can hold all our domains and we could select any number of domains, load article with images and post them at a click of the mouse. Any help would be appriciated
  2. I set catagories to noindex/follow in yoast to prevent duplicate content issues. That said...a silo structure setup recommended by GOY quite some time ago that I've kept in my files and implemented sometimes is linking from the homepage that has most of the power to each main target page...makes sense, I do this every time. But he also recommended linking to each catagory from the homepage. To send the spyders/PR (or DA/TF/Whatever these days)...link juice...flowing thru the site in the best way possible. The supporting posts in those catagories linking back up to the main pages etc But my confusion, even after all this time...if my cats are set to no index but still followed, does that make sense to use them in any sort of onsite linking structure?
  3. Found this on the WordFence blog today. Looks someone bought a popular WordPress Plugin and then updated it to include malware that creates a back door to your admin. If you are using a captcha plugin make sure that you are not using this one and if you are you need to remove it and clean up your site. Backdoor in Captcha Plugin Affects 300K WordPress Sites
  4. Wordpress security issues and questions come up on a fairly regular basis and for quite awhile now I have been going to do a big write up and post it. Needless to say that it has not happened and I decided that rather than waiting until I find the time to post a big all inclusive post and maybe never getting it done I would go ahead and start posting a few things at a time on at least a semi-regular basis. I figure it is bound to do more good than waiting until I have the perfect post ready to go. Also a lot of these things can (and should) be used on non-WP sites. As most of the questions are about existing sites that is where I am going to start today. 1. Restricting access to your sites folders via a .htaccess file. I protect the following folders by ip address in a normal install /cgi-bin /wp-admin /wp-includes You can use the following info for your .htaccess file. I have added instructions for anyone that needs them. The setup is pretty basic, you can go to whatismyip.com and get your IP address. If your IP address is dynamic than you can use a range rather than a specific IP. While this does leave some opening it cuts it down by a very large number. This solution is good if you have only a few people accessing your admin. If you have a large number of people you can password protect the directory in your cpanel. If you do not have cpanel let me know and I can do a walk through on how to do that manually. This means that everyone accessing the admin will basically have to login twice, once to access the folder and once to login to the admin itself. WARNING: once you have blocked off the includes file access your site from a different IP and make sure it is working OK. I have ran into a few hosts where blocking off the includes folder breaks Wordpress. It is rarely a problem but you should check anyway. You should see the following The next thing is the wp-config.php file. If your WP site is installed in the root of your domain you want to go ahead and move it up one level above the public_html folder. Wordpress knows to look there for it and will find it just fine and removing it from the public_html folder will make it harder for anyone to access. All you need to do is either move it up via your cpanel file manager or using your FTP program. When you are done it should look like this (not sure why this image is so small, if you guys need a bigger one I will take new screenshot) And yes I know I make circles like a 2 year old. Wordpress is now rolling out automatic updates. This is somewhat of a problem because I recommend turning off write permissions to a lot of files which breaks the update process. It only takes a couple of minutes to turn them on and off but you need to do it before and after the updates run. What I do is make a change to the wp-config.php file so I have to click on the button in the admin for the updates to run. I add the following just before the Thats all line It should look like this While you are in the file check to see you added the salts like you should have during the install. If you did not do so now. Go to this url like it says and just copy and paste them into the file. ( https://api.wordpress.org/secret-key/1.1/salt/) Once you have done that you can change the permissions to 444 (if you do not know how that info is below) Now I lock down a bunch of files and folders First the cgi-bin folder A lot of malware like to hide files there so locking it down stops that and WP does not use it. 1. change the permissions for the .access file to 444 than change the permissions to the folder itself to 400. Then we start locking down a bunch of files. It is easy to do them because you can use the shift key to do all of the ones in a folder at the same time. Now if you look at the bottom left of the screen shot you can see a bunch of files with random names. These are files that in a lot of cases are not being used but could be a way for someone to hack into the site. It really depends on what you are using the site for. Are you posting to your site via email? if not then the xlmrpc.php is not being used. Rather than deleting it I just add a bunch of random characters to the front with the first letter z so it is at the bottom. Is your site part of a network that is not allowing new users to register? If not there is no use for the wp-signup.php or wp-activate.php files Are you using comments? If not change the name of the wp-comment.php file Are you allowing trackbacks? If not the sames goes for the wp-trackbacks.php file. Once you have change the names of all the ones you are going to then highlight the files and change the permissions to 444 like in the screenshot. If your site has been up awhile and has an error.log file do not change that file to 444 leave it as 644 or the server will not be able to write to it. Next do the same thing to all the files (not folders) in your /wp-includes folder. Exact same process just highlight them all and change the permissions to 444 Next is the themes and plugins folders. When you go to the folder you will see a index.php file. This file is not used by WP and is just there to keep people from seeing what is in the folder. You can change the permissions to 444 and not have to worry about changing them back for the updates. Just change the permission to 444 like the other files. Also as you see there is only one theme in my folder. ALWAYS delete any themes (and plugins) that are not being used. Every Single extra file you add to your install adds more ways for people to gain access to your files. Most of the hacks are done through plugins and theme files so get rid of the ones you are not actively using. Also change the permissions on all your theme files. The permissions on these do NOT need to be changed back when you do Wordpress updates. The only time you need to change them back to 644 is if you update the theme itself. And that is a wrap for today. If you have any questions let me know and next time I will go over some changes to make to the .htaccess file in the root of your site.

  13. Hello guys, I want to share with you the most important things you should do in order to optimize your WordPress blog or website for optimal SEO performance. Use SEO-Friendly URLs SEO-friendly urls will boost your results because they help Google to understand what your page is about Optimize your titles for SEO Titles are probably on of the most important on page SEO factor. For best results start your title with your keyword or place it in the beginning. Add modifiers to your title Use modifiers like “2016â€, “bestâ€, “guideâ€, and “review etc. They will help you to rank for long tail keywords. Optimize your descriptions Your descriptions are very important because they will help you to increase your CTR and this will help you to climb in SERP. Eliminate thin or duplicate content Duplicate content decrease the quality of your blog or website and send link juice down the drain. XML sitemaps They help search engines to crawl your websites Content Optimization Content marketing is a growing trend. In fact the safest way to build or earn links is through 10x content. Create in depth 10x content Use LSI keywords - keywords related to your main target keyword Link out to quality resources Interlink other pages on your website Use content Resurrection - updated old content Keyword sweet spots -Put your keyword at the beginning and the end of the article. Boost Time on site The time your visitors spend on your site is vital ranking factor. If the time your visitors spend on your website is longer compared to your competitors Google will boost your rankings. Use Responsive Design There are more searches on Mobile than on desktop. Google even started to penalize mobile unfriendly sites. Use responsive themes Boost Site Speed Speed Factors: Image Optimization Group JavaScript and CSS files Use Caching Plugin Caching information (expires header) Add LazyLoad to your images Gzip compression Widget/Plugin Overload Optimize your WordPress database Disable hotlinking and leeching of your content Fast WordPress Theme Use CDN for static files Use solid web host Decrease the number of Ads External Embedded Media Control a number of post revisions Turn off pingbacks and trackbacks Optimize your home page I created a detailed guide if you need any help with anything above - http://fortunelords.com/wordpress-seo/
  14. Hello, guys! I faced an issue with duplicate titles & descriptions and can't figure out how to fix it. Here's the details: Google Search Console shows me a few pages with these issues: http://take.ms/RALsm They come from my homepage pagination: I have a 'Latest posts' widget on my homepage and a pagination buttons under it. When you click on a button '3', for example, you go to the page like domain.com/page/3. The problem is, it's a separate page, but Google can't understand that. Now, in past I made a mistake in Yoast SEO for Wordpress configuration: I deleted %%page%% from all the titles. That parameter actually tells Google that the pagination on the page works as a separate page and creates nice titles like 'NAME. Page 1 of 3.' But I spotted the mistake (learned from SEO Yoast guide) and corrected it. Now the titles have %%page%% parameter: http://take.ms/VkduC And for category pages (when you open a category archive with a pagination) it works, the titles include 'Page 3 of 5'. But for my home page where I have pagination, the title is the same for all pages, no 'Page 3 of 5' included. Did anyone face the same problem and find a solution? I'd appreciate your advice.
  15. These issues are in the core WP files so if you have not updated yet you should go ahead and do so. https://wordpress.org/news/2015/09/wordpress-4-3-1/ This release addresses three issues, including two cross-site scripting vulnerabilities and a potential privilege escalation. WordPress versions 4.3 and earlier are vulnerable to a cross-site scripting vulnerability when processing shortcode tags (CVE-2015-5714). A separate cross-site scripting vulnerability was found in the user list table. Finally, in certain cases, users without proper permissions could publish private posts and make them sticky (CVE-2015-5715).

  17. Just another example of why you should delete plugins you are not using and for keeping your plugin count as low as possible. If you are using any of the plugins below you need to update ASAP https://blog.sucuri.net/2015/04/security-advisory-xss-vulnerability-affecting-multiple-wordpress-plugins.html Multiple WordPress Plugins are vulnerable to Cross-site Scripting (XSS) due to the misuse of the add_query_arg() and remove_query_arg() functions. These are popular functions used by developers to modify and add query strings to URLs within WordPress. The official WordPress Official Documentation (Codex) for these functions was not very clear and misled many plugin developers to use them in an insecure way. The developers assumed that these functions would escape the user input for them, when it does not. This simple detail, caused many of the most popular plugins to be vulnerable to XSS. To date, this is the list of affected plugins: Jetpack WordPress SEO Google Analytics by Yoast All In one SEO Gravity Forms Multiple Plugins from Easy Digital Downloads UpdraftPlus WP-E-Commerce WPTouch Download Monitor Related Posts for WordPress My Calendar P3 Profiler Give Multiple iThemes products including Builder and Exchange Broken-Link-Checker Ninja Forms
  18. just one more reason you should be deleting WP plugins you are not using and not use any more plugins than you need to. If all these large widely used plugins regularly have security issues how many of the less used one guy behind the keyboard plugins are out there with issues that we never hear about. http://www.wordfence.com/blog/2015/03/woocommerce-sql-injection-vulnerability/
  19. If you are using the WordPress Video Gallery you should disable it for now. There is currently no fix and Wordpress has pulled the plugin from the site until it has been updated. http://www.wordfence.com/blog/2015/02/0-day-sql-injection-vulnerability-in-wordpress-video-gallery
  20. I'm sure many of you have heard of the Wordpress SEO plugin by Yoast. Amazing plugin, with a LOT of features and a must for any Wordpress website. But are you sure your taking advantage of everything it has to offer? I find many people "miss" a few key features that will help their site rank better. So here are the 10 things: 1) Post/Page Advanced Settings 2) Twitter Cards 3) Author Page SEO 4) Social Sharing Optimization 5) Category SEO6 6) Custom Post Type SEO 7) Robots.txt 8) Bulk Editor For Titles & Descriptions 9) RSS Feed Content 10) Keyword Research Quick Links & Screen Options The full post is located here.
  21. Not all of these problems are brand new but if you are using any of the following plug-ins you need to make sure you are updated to the following versions. WPTouch (3.4.3) Disqus (2.77) All In One SEO Pack (2.2.1) MailPoet Newsletters (2.6.9) http://www.zdnet.com/wordpress-plugin-vulns-affect-over-20-million-downloads-7000031703/
  22. Hey guys.... I have a problem I have been struggling with all day... One of my wordpress sites is under attack and they are attacking the index.php file (homepage).. So basically what they are doing is sending fake visitors to the site which slows down the site and that makes the load time around 30 seconds to a minute. I had problems before where they were attacking wp.login.php and wp-admin areas... but that is easily blocked. In this situation I however have no clue on what to do. The hosting company told me the only solution is to block the IP adresses and that I have to do it myself... which I can't do since there are literally thousands of them. Each generated visit is from a different IP... so blocking them is literally impossible. Any ideas what to do in this situation?
  23. Here is another big one but this one seems to be breaking a lot of sites because it is poorly written. http://blog.sucuri.net/2014/07/malware-infection-breaking-wordpress-sites.html Check the comments for updates
  24. A zero-day vulnerability in the popular TimThumb plugin for WordPress leaves many websites vulnerable to exploits that allow unauthorized attackers to execute malicious code, security researchers have warned. http://arstechnica.com/security/2014/06/running-wordpress-got-webshot-enabled-turn-it-off-or-youre-toast/
  25. Alright, Is it a wise a idea to rename the plugins whichs you're using accross all domains on your PR blog network? For example, I am using a 301 redirect plugin on all of my domains to save PR being lost because of broken links, since all sites are using the same plugin will this show a footprint or should I rename it so it's installed in a different directory? And if so, HOW!? Thanks
