3. Managing Wordpress Permalinks Structures

Once , all the posts are imported , now you have to set up the posts permalinks exactly to the blogger style permalinks to keep away from 404 error pages , else we will loose all seo traffic from google and other search engines .

wordpress custom permalinks fro blogger

Copy and enter this url permalink structure - /%year%/%monthnum%/%postname%.html

Now , Save your settings .

Even though We have changed wordpress permalinks to blogger style , still we are not done up completely with it .

Here is a sample Wordpress Url after import :
http://wapmasterszone.com/how-to-import-your-blogger-blog-without-losing-traffic-seo.html

and here is our original link  :
http://wapmasterszone.com/how-to-import-your-blogger-blog.html

Though both are same posts , blogger has trimmed the url length , which needs to be fixed to match the original blogger url of our site .

Here is a fix for this :


Create a new php file on your server as fix.php or any name of your choice .

<?php

require_once('wp-load.php');
$res = $wpdb->get_results("SELECT post_id, meta_value FROM $wpdb->postmeta WHERE meta_key = 'blogger_permalink'");
$wpdb->print_error();
foreach ($res as $row){
$slug = explode("/",$row->meta_value);
$slug = explode(".",$slug[3]);
$wpdb->query("UPDATE $wpdb->posts SET post_name ='" . $slug[0] . "' WHERE ID = $row->post_id");
$wpdb->print_error();
}
echo "DONE";
?>


Once , you save it , Open the file in your browser . For eg . http://yoursitename.com/fix.php

This will fix all the url and make it exactly same as the blogger url structure . Now you can search your site in google and click on any links to check if its working or giving any 404 error pages .

Now , you have successfully migrated your blogger blog to wordpress cms without losing any seo traffic , Keeping all the content the same . You now have access to thousands of seo plugins and faetures for every need .

Happy Blogging , Have any Queries on this post ? Do let us know in comments below !

How To Add Wordpress Maintenance Mode With Custom Page Without Plugin

Wordpress is a powerful CMS(Content Management System) for creating powerful sites with ease. Wordpress comes with thousands of plugins for almost every need, it might be for seo or for generating sitemaps and even for switching site to maintainance mode without knowlwdge of any programming .

When a new version is out in wordpress, you will be shown update option in your wordpress dashboard. Once installation of latest version of wordpress is completed then you will be shown Wordpress Default Maintainence Page.


Wordpress Maintenance Mode Without Plugin With Custom Page

Wordpress displays this maintenance mode page with the help of .maintenance file which is generated when wordpress is updated.Incase if updatation of wordpress fails to server or network error, then the .mantainance file isnt deleted from the server causing maintainence mode.

Since WordPress 3.0 version of WordPress it started to check for 10 minutes from the starting of the updation. If the time is less that 10 minutes for the starting of the updating .maintenance mode will go live and WordPress maintenance mode gets activated showing a message to the WordPress users

WordPress Customised Maintenance Mode Page
If the time exceeds the 10 mins duration then the .maintenance file automatically dies showing the visitors actual website content. How ever WordPress has included some steps to manually customize WordPress maintenance mode splash page. After WordPress 3.0 in addition to .maintenance it also gave support to custom page called maintenance.php .

You can create a .maintenance file in your wordpress folder and customise it as you like to display message of your choice.

Here is php code of Wordpress .maintainance file :


/**
* Dies with a maintenance message when conditions are met.
*
* Checks for a file in the WordPress root directory named “.maintenance”.
* This file will contain the variable $upgrading, set to the time the file
* was created. If the file was created less than 10 minutes ago, WordPress
* enters maintenance mode and displays a message.
*
* The default message can be replaced by using a drop-in (maintenance.php in
* the wp-content directory).
*
* @access private
* @since 3.0.0
*/
function wp_maintenance() {
if ( !file_exists( ABSPATH . ‘.maintenance’ ) || defined( ‘WP_INSTALLING’ ) )
return;global $upgrading;include( ABSPATH . ‘.maintenance’ );
// If the $upgrading timestamp is older than 10 minutes, don’t die.
if ( ( time() – $upgrading ) >= 600 )
return;if ( file_exists( WP_CONTENT_DIR . ‘/maintenance.php’ ) ) {
require_once( WP_CONTENT_DIR . ‘/maintenance.php’ );
die();
}

We can override and customize that page by simply adding an extra file called maintenance.php in wp-content.
Now you can add your html/php code in maintenance.php file which will replace the default .maintenance file.

You Can also disble Wordpress maintenance Mode by replacing 600 with 0 in the above code in loop.php file in wp-includes folder.

// If the $upgrading timestamp is older than 10 minutes, don’t die.
if ( ( time() – $upgrading ) >= 0 )
return;

Here 600 represents Number of seconds in 10 Minutes, changing 600 to 0 disables Wordpress Maintenance Mode which is enabled by default.

Wordpress Social Locker Plugin Review | Social Content Locker WP 2014

Wordpress Social Locker Plugin

Social Locker is a WP plugin that locks your most valuable site content behind a set of social buttons until the visitor likes, shares, +1s or tweets your page. It helps to improve social performance of your website, get more likes/shares, build quality followers and attract more traffic from social networks.

Do you still place social buttons on every page of your website? But visitors don’t like/share your content as often as you would like?
You should give people a reason why they need to click social buttons on your website. Even if people really like your content, website or fanpage, they don’t click the buttons because they don’t worry about you, your benefits or your traffic. It’s not their problem. 
But ask people to “pay” with a Like/Tweet/+1 to get access to your content, to get a discount, to download, to read an ending of your article, to watch a video or to view a funny picture. And it will start to work as it should be!
How does it work?
All you need to do is select the part of your content you want to lock, click a button and you’re done.
This way, you can use articles, videos, audio, images, download links, coupon codes or anything else you can think of as an incentive for people to give you likes or shares.
1. Drive Social Traffic: Social Locker will add systematically viral traffic to your website, your opt-in funnel or your sales-page. When users share or tweet your page to get access to the content you locked, their friends see it and some of them visit your website. That repeats again and again.
2. Build Quality Fans & Followers: Every blogger and internet entrepreneur knows how difficult it is to get fans and followers, especially for new websites with a low budget.
Get every visitor of your site to follow you. Keep in contact with your audience and build loyalty. Just lock some valued content and tell visitors that the locked content is available only for your fans and followers.
3. Improve SEO Ranking: Google’s search algorithm takes over 200 factors into consideration when determining which results to show for a search query and in what order. Social media is one of the most important factors in their algorithm and has a significant influence on how a site ranks in a search.

Results in the organic search results’ top positions have a high number of likes, shares, +1’s and tweets. So, the better your social media performance, the better your SEO results.

How to Install/Setup W3 Total Cache For Wordpress ?

  • Deactivate and uninstall any other caching plugin you may be using. Pay special attention if you have customized the rewrite rules for fancy permalinks, have previously installed a caching plugin or have any browser caching rules as W3TC will automate management of all best practices. Also make sure wp-content/ and wp-content/uploads/ (temporarily) have 777 permissions before proceeding, e.g. in the terminal: # chmod 777 /var/www/vhosts/domain.com/httpdocs/wp-content/ using your web hosting control panel or your FTP / SSH account.
  • Login as an administrator to your WordPress Admin account. Using the "Add New" menu option under the "Plugins" section of the navigation, you can either search for: w3 total cache or if you've downloaded the plugin already, click the "Upload" link, find the .zip file you download and then click "Install Now". Or you can unzip and FTP upload the plugin to your plugins directory (wp-content/plugins/). In either case, when done wp-content/plugins/w3-total-cache/ should exist.
  • W3 Total Cache Wordpress Plugin ReviewHow to Install W3 Total Cache
  • Locate and activate the plugin on the "Plugins" page. Page caching will automatically be running in basic mode. Set the permissions of wp-content and wp-content/uploads back to 755, e.g. in the terminal: # chmod 755 /var/www/vhosts/domain.com/httpdocs/wp-content/.
  • Now click the "Settings" link to proceed to the "General Settings" tab; in most cases, "disk enhanced" mode for page cache is a "good" starting point.

  • The "Compatibility Mode" option found in the advanced section of the "Page Cache Settings" tab will enable functionality that optimizes the interoperablity of caching with WordPress, is disabled by default, but highly recommended. Years of testing in hundreds of thousands of installations have helped us learn how to make caching behave well with WordPress. The tradeoff is that disk enhanced page cache performance under load tests will be decreased by ~20% at scale.
  • Recommended: On the "Minify Settings" tab, all of the recommended settings are preset. If auto mode causes issues with your web site's layout, switch to manual mode and use the help button to simplify discovery of your CSS and JS files and groups. Pay close attention to the method and location of your JS group embeddings. See the plugin's FAQ for more information on usage.
  • Recommended: On the "Browser Cache" tab, HTTP compression is enabled by default. Make sure to enable other options to suit your goals.
  • Recommended: If you already have a content delivery network (CDN) provider, proceed to the "Content Delivery Network" tab and populate the fields and set your preferences. If you do not use the Media Library, you will need to import your images etc into the default locations. Use the Media Library Import Tool on the "Content Delivery Network" tab to perform this task. If you do not have a CDN provider, you can still improve your site's performance using the "Self-hosted" method. On your own server, create a subdomain and matching DNS Zone record; e.g. static.domain.com and configure FTP options on the "Content Delivery Network" tab accordingly. Be sure to FTP upload the appropriate files, using the available upload buttons.
  • Optional: On the "Database Cache" tab, the recommended settings are preset. If using a shared hosting account use the "disk" method with caution, the response time of the disk may not be fast enough, so this option is disabled by default. Try object caching instead for shared hosting.

  • Optional: On the "Object Cache" tab, all of the recommended settings are preset. If using a shared hosting account use the "disk" method with caution, the response time of the disk may not be fast enough, so this option is disabled by default. Test this option with and without database cache to ensure that it provides a performance increase.

  • Optional: On the "User Agent Groups" tab, specify any user agents, like mobile phones if a mobile theme is used.
