You can get your own content published on this site as long as you have CommentLuv installed on your site.

Doing so means you get exposure to thousands and thousands of other CommentLuv users and your posts get sent out to the massive subscriber list.

Google loves this site and indexes it multiple times per day and posts always get lots of comments so you can be sure of some excellent exposure.

See the Write For Us page for more details

btw.. you can get this author box here

change-aheadI had some messages about comments not going through and a few people mentioned that the theme was nice but busy.

nobody likes to hear criticism but I had to agree.

StudioPress

So I spent a whole afternoon putting in a StudioPress theme .

yes.

an afternoon.

that’s all it took! I was so happy to see the new theme and it’s quite pretty on the ipad too :-)

the last theme change took bloomin ages to get right and even then it didn’t look right… if you know what I mean?

So, I’m happy with the News theme from Studiopress. It worked right out of the box.

I made some minor additions using a custom plugin for things like tweet boxes and other things which I might reveal in another post.

you can add most of the functions to functions.php in your theme so it might be useful to one or two people.

SEO Pressor

Another addition is the SEO Pressor plugin which makes a return to ComLuv.com and is available for guest bloggers to use to make their posts even more findable.

.. findable is a word..

eg. Comluv guest posts are really findable

:-)

seopressor boxif you haven’t used it yet then you’re gonna love it.

most SEO plugins take over completely. They do what they think is best.

seo pressor is different in that it guides you rather than tells you what to do.

I love it!

I am tempted to hire a freelancer to come in to comluv.com and optimize all the previous posts.

..or maybe hire a comluv.com user for the job? something you’re interested in doing?.. get in contact!

it only takes 10 minutes per post to add the keywords and follow the instructions to get a good score.

I’ve got a LOT of posts though! that’s why I might need to outsource it.

oh, btw.. it does rich snippets too.

and LSI content ideas

and videos.

bloody love this plugin!

you can get SEO Pressor by clicking this conveniently affiliated link :-)

Google+

Author pictures in google search results for guest bloggers

There’s been some discussion over on google+ about authorship.

as you can see, there are a number of people that successfully set their google profile up so that their guest posts show their author pictures.

it’s dead easy!

just link to comluv from your google plus profile page

and then make sure your google plus profile url is in your ‘your profile’ section of the dashboard on this site

you can see the discussion about google+ authorship here

Oh, and some instructions here on this site too -> Google + Authorship for Comluv Guest Bloggers

FeedBlitz Feedsmart

To keep my coding hat on, I have been doing some code for Phil at Feedblitz which is an awesome feedburner replacement.

(it does on-demand newsletters too)

feedblitz category feedsQuite a number of people wanted specific category feeds

if you’ve ever tried the feedsmith plugin for feedburner then you’ll know that every request to any feed goes direct to your main feedburner feed.

that can be a bit poo if you’ve got a podcast category

(speaking of podcasts, feedblitz is going to have new service especially for you podders soon)

or a multi author blog

so now the FeedSmart plugin has the ability to have separate feeds for any categories you like

and also, exclude certain categories from being redirected.

oh, and multi author blogs can allow their authors to have their own feedblitz feed :-)

I’ve finished the logic and will be giving it a run through the testing mangle next week.

you might want to go and check out FeedBlitz , it’s better than feedburner. without doubt.

You for hire?

As I mentioned above, I’m in the market to hire some freelancers

mainly to do with wordpressy things

if you’re a freelancer or keyboarder for hire then get in contact by leaving a comment or submitting a support ticket.

actually, submitting a support ticket would be best.

that way I can tag you and find everyone who is tagged with ‘freelancer’ when I have some work.

when the new payment system comes in for commentluv I’ll have a lot of work to outsource

mainly to do with content creation for instructions for the plugin
