SEO Title Tag – Customize Your Title Tags

Lee Odden on May 14th, 2007     Blogging

SEO Title TagThe SEO Title tag is a plugin that I’ve known about for a while, but never messed with. Boy was I missing out.

What SEO Title Tag does is add the ability to customize your blog’s title tags per post. No longer are they tied directly to the post title. You can customize almost any title tag across your blog giving your site a possible edge in search engines.

One can customize individual posts, categories or pages. The default WordPress title tags are OK, Optimal Title makes them better, SEO Title Tag makes them into whatever you want them to be.

There is also the ability to customize the separator, create a shot blog name to show on post pages, remove the blog name from post pages, use category descriptions as titles on category pages and tie the Title tags into UTW (Ultimate Tag Warrior).

WordPress.com Stats for Almost Everyone

Lee Odden on May 8th, 2007     Blogging

Wordpress StatsWordPress has launched an official stats plugin named Automattic Stats. It a stats plugin that ties into WordPress.com to track your visitors and works well, but it’s not available for everyone.

One of the WordPress.com exclusive features is the ability to get blog and feed stats in your dashboard. Everything from the number feed reads to incoming links, keywords, clicks and top posts. A great feature that was sadly missing from anyone who installed WordPress on their own servers. That was until recently when the Automattic Stats plugin was released.

The plugin is a snap to install. Just upload the file into your plugins directory, then put in your WordPress.com API. Yes, you need one of those. If you use Akismet, then you already have one and don’t need another. If you don’t have one, signup for a WordPress.com account and they’ll give you one. After that, just sit back and wait for your stats to roll in.
