Good News

I have ask Google Team again to make sure this plugin is acceptable and doesn’t break Google TOS. They said:

Wed, 12 Jul 2006 14:08:20 -0700
Hello Supriyadi,
Thanks for your emails.
The ad placement on
https://supriyadisw.net/2006/07/adsense-beautifier
is acceptable by
our policies; as you’ve noted, we ask that publishers
place a visible border between the ads and the images, in order to
avoid
confusion and invalid clicks.

So if your site use background other than white (#FFFFFF), you have to change border color between image and ad in order to make it visible.

Integrate with Adsense Deluxe Plugin

This plugin can be integrate with Adsense Deluxe plugin. Here is my tip:
In Adsense Deluxe plugin option, place your new AdSense code (from adsenseBeautifier Options page) to AdSense code field in AdSenseDeluxe Options page.

To insert any of your defined ad units within template files, you can call a PHP plugin function with the name of the ad unit you want displayed. The syntax is as follows:

<?php adsense_deluxe_ads('AdBlock_name'); ?>

However, it?s strongly recommended that you always confirm that the function is available to keep from generating PHP errors or breaking your page display, using the following syntax:

<?php if (function_exists(adsense_deluxe_ads('AdBlock_name'))) {
adsense_deluxe_ads('AdBlock_name'); } ?>

Note: This syntax little bit different from recommended syntax from Adsense Deluxe Plugin.

Disclaimer

– If You are not really sure to use this plugin, please contact Google Team. Use with your own risk.
– I never guarantee that your CTR or AdSense earning will rise 🙂

Support Me

If you find it useful, please consider donating to help me continue work on the plugin. This plugin is, and will remain, freely available and open source, please only donate if you want to and can afford it.

That’s it. Feel free to add comment here.

😀 Have a great day and gud lak

Spam Karma 2 Activated

in Article/Wordpress by

Since my blog goes to online, a lot of spam try to come. Huuh.. I don’t like spam. Anybody like that? I don’t think so 😉

Definitions of Spam

To indiscriminately send unsolicited, unwanted, irrelevant, or inappropriate messages, especially commercial advertising in mass quantities. Noun: electronic “junk mail”. -www.tecrime.com/0gloss.htm

E-mail spam is a subset of spam that involves sending nearly identical messages to thousands (or millions) of recipients by E-mail. -http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spam_(e-mail)

Currently I used Askimet Spam plugin (default spam control for wordpress). Does it work? Yes, it does. Akismet has caught 132 spam for me since I installed it. But a few spam can not been caught by Akismet. So I try to install another spam controller. I installed Spam Karma 2 on My Blog.

How to install it?

The installation procedure are:

  1. Download the archive.
  2. Unzip and drop the whole SK2 folder, as is, in your plugins directory.
  3. Enable the plugin in the WP Admin >> Plugins section.
  4. Browse to WP Admin >> Manage >> Spam Karma 2 to configure it.

For more detail please visit Spam Karma Website

Well done. My blog is protected by Spam Karma 2. You can see my footer 😀 I hope it will work perfectly 😉 Good luck and have a nice day always…

Search Engine Optimization for WordPress

in Article/SEO/Wordpress by

After reading some articles about search engine optimization for wordpress, I decide to redesign my theme to optimize my wordpress blog for better search engine optimization. I use these following articles to redesign my wordpress blog:

What is Search Engine Optimization (SEO)?

There are many definitions for Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
Definition from Wikipedia

Search engine optimization (SEO) is a set of methods aimed at improving the ranking of a website in search engine listings, and could be considered a subset of search engine marketing.

Definition from Whatis.com

Search engine optimization (SEO) is the practice of manipulating aspects of a Web site to improve its ranking in search engines.

Unfortunately wordpress doesn?t have SEO yet, so we need to built it ourself. Perhaps not very bad, but we can improve our wordpress for better SEO. You should try this and prove yourselft how it work 😉

Permalink Optimization

The goal: stick more keywords up into the URL and remove the faff which nobody uses, to make the URL seach engine and people attractive.

My permalink structure:

  • Before redesign:
    https://supriyadisw.net/%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%/
  • Redesign to:
    https://supriyadisw.net/%postname%/
  • Then:
    https://supriyadisw.net/%year%/%monthnum%/%postname%.html
  • Finally:
    https://supriyadisw.net/%year%/%monthnum%/%postname%/

I try to use many possible permalink structure to get optimize result. So if you find “404 Page not found” on my Blog, perhaps that link used my old permalink structure. I so sorry about it. I hope it’s my final permalink structure 😉

Page Titles

Because Google truncates titles when they pass a particular length, you need your important keywords up front. Google might also be counting words which appear earlier in the title as more important.

My page titles

  • Before:

    supriyadisw dot net » engage on dapper drake

  • After:

    engage on dapper drake · supriyadisw dot net

How to make it?
You can put this code into your wordpress template:

<title><?php ws6q9jzl7p_title(' '); ?>
<?php if(ws6q9jzl7p_title(' ', false)) { echo ' &middot; ';
} ?> <?php bloginfo('name'); ?>
</title>

Thx for the code. Feel free to use your own character instead “&middot; (·)”

Post Titles

Keep your post titles nice and simple, and as straight-forward as possible. Sure, pack in the keywords, but do it smartly. You have to blend readability with keywords. It?s easy to muck-up, but doing it right will help you loads.

I have to rebuilt my XHTML structure to get some fantastic results 😉
By default:

  • H1 tag is used for Blogname
  • H2 tag is used for Post Titles
  • H3 tag is used for sub section
  • and so on…

I had made changed like this:

  • H1 tag is use for Post Titles – Replace blogname properties
  • H2 tag is use for Post Titles – Leave it by default

Does it work?

I try to make a little research how it work. OK! See my case study of my post about “Engage on Dapper Drake”.

Before:
I post this topic with title “Engage On My Ubuntu Dapper Drake” – You can see on my blogger. I keep it as original one 🙂

My Page title on WordPress is

supriyadisw dot net » engage on my ubuntu dapper drake

When I googling with keyword “engage on dapper”, the result is:
engage
My post on 3rd position (not bad I think, but I try to improve its position on Google page).

First Redesign:
Edit my permalink structure to

https://supriyadisw.net/%year%/%monthnum%/%postname%.html

The result is:
engage
Look.. I get 2nd position

Finally:
Edit my permalink structure to

https://supriyadisw.net/%year%/%monthnum%/%postname%

Edit my post title to

Engage on Dapper Drake

Edit my page title to

engage on dapper drake · supriyadisw dot net

engage
And I get a great result because my post become number one. Become a winner on the same topic. Huraay… 😀

How about your wordpress? Good Luck…

Move From Blogger to WordPress

in Article/Wordpress by

Setelah menulis beberapa blog di Blogger, akhirnya aku putuskan untuk beralih platform dari Blogger ke WordPress.

Alasan

Kenapa sich pake acara pindah2 segala? Pada awalnya aku sich asik2 aja pake Blogger. Blogger tu tampilannya simple, mudah di-management, dan udah populer. Tapi ada beberapa batasan yang ada di Blogger, yaitu:

  1. Blogger gak punya fitur kategori, padahal fitur ini bagiku penting. Kategori mempermudah untuk pengaturan post. Ada beberapa tutorial di Internet yang membantu membuatnya, tapi aku pikir rada ribet juga, karena mungkin emank bukan asli fiturnya Blogger.
  2. Blogger templatenya terbatas, sejauh yang aku tahu sich hanya sedikit template untuk Blogger. Mungkin kalo mau cari sich banyak kali ya. Heheheh…
  3. Blogger servernya di luar. Maksudnya adalah file2 dan segala macam yang berhubungan dengan postingku tersimpan di servernya orang. Jadi pasti ada kendala dalam pengorganisasian, misalnya maintain, backup, dll. Sebenernya bisa juga ditaruh di FTP lokal, tapi aku coba susah banget alias belum berhasil. Hiks…

Kenapa pilih Worpress?

Alasanku memilih WordPress antara lain:

  1. Worpress memiliki fitur kategori yang baik.
  2. WordPress memiliki template yang berjibun alias buanyak buanget. Heheheh….
  3. WordPress bisa aku taro di server lokal, sehingga mudah dalam pengorganisasian blogku.

Cara Pindah?

Langkah yang aku lakukan:

  1. Download WordPress
  2. Install WordPress di server lokal
  3. Setting theme
  4. Setting plugin
  5. Pindahin semua posting dari Blogger ke WordPress

Pindahin semua posting?

Sebenernya ada prosedur baku untuk pindahin posting dan comment dari Blogger ke WordPress. beberapa artikel yang telah membahasnya antara lain:

Tapi dari semua yang disebutin di atas, kok gak berhasil ya? Hiks… Atau mungkin belum berhasil aja kali… Gimana dunk… Cara yang sangat gak praktyis yang aku lakukan adalah pindahin semua postingku dan comment satu2 dari Blogger ke WordPress. Bener2 satu per satu… (pekerjaan yang panjang dan melelahkan) Hiks… Untung cuman 28 post. Coba kalo ratusan…atau ribuan… Weleh..weleh… Gak elit banget dech cara seperti ini. Sangat tidak dianjurkan. Habis mau gimana lagi dunk. Udah dua harian nyobain gak berhasil juga. Hiks… yach walaupun caranya gak elit, paling tidak semua postingku dan comment udah pindah dari Blogger ke WordPress (sebenarnya copiannya sich) Heheheh….

Akhirnya

Selamat tinggal Blogger-ku dan selamat datang WordPress-ku. Have a great day…

me, sUpricak3p

Catatan: Semua tulisan ini bersifat subyektif loh… 😀
