WordPress 3.8 Update Out Now

December 12, 2013 Technical No Comments

Hold on just a minute though. Before you go running around updating your WordPress site, I suggest you do a couple of things first.
1 – wait
2 – backup your database and all files before you do the update.

I have been bitten by this on a personal website of mine, when a conflict arose from a plugin that was wreaking havoc on the site host server. They shut me down literally, shut me down, because the plugin was making infinite calls to action that were not doing anything but getting caught in a death spiral loop.

So hold tight, wait and see.

YouTube Videos A Powerful Force for Traffic and Information

I have noticed a marked increase in traffic flow to-and-from YouTube in the last eighteen months, and if you consider everyone’s ability to stream video I think the reason is obvious. We can finally watch video without those frustrating pauses and glitch loading symbols popping up every few seconds!

Not only are YouTube videos a huge bonus to your traffic, video is finally emerging as the most powerful force to get your information, about products, or whatever it is you’re about, out to the masses in the most informative way possible.

This revolution is well underway, but beware, bad video is like a horrible local auto, or carpet, or plumber commercial; people will turn away like the final second of a car crash. And they won’t come back if they don’t have to.

Above  is a video I recently completed for Richard Davis, a professor at the University of North Texas, for his website Richard Davis Sculpture.

Not only do videos inform, they are also a valuable design element, and should always say something that your words – YOUR CONTENT – does not say. If they are creatively entertaining, you will be rewarded even more.

Pay Attention to Your Content and New Social Media Like Google+

Once you have your WordPress site up and running, and are getting used to all the controls behind the scene, don’t forget to add content! Add content all the time, as long as it about, or related to the subject the site is about. Also remember that people from many different walks of life will find you if you are interesting, and write about interesting things! It’s not really magic. It is work though.

And when it comes to new social media, and utilizing that, you are well advised to pay attention to Google+ and make that part of your regularly scheduled social media day. Again, it’s fun and it’s work. Google+ is slowly gaining organic momentum in the social realm, and it’s hard to bet against the folks at Google. Keep your eyes on them, and if you have your website, make sure you take the time to get on Google+ and create your communities and circles using your business name, or names related to what your website is all about.
