Take it easy WordPress

One of the reasons for my purple widget SEO experiment was to gain more knowledge about blogs and how they worked and they performed in search engines. I had a bit of an idea about both but sometimes I learn better by doing (and sometimes I learn by getting punched in the head over and over) so I’ve launched a few blogs including this one and am getting smarter (sometimes my head hurts). One thing I’ve learned that definetely makes my head hurt is that WordPress sure comes out with new versions alot. Seems like every time I log in to post (and I don’t do this as often as I should, but still) there is a new version I should update to. Luckily, for lazy people (I mean effort economists) like me there is a great plugin called WordPress Automatic Upgrade that I absolutely love! It gives me a link right above the WordPress notice telling me to update and then walks me through an easy 7-8 click upgrade process. Presto, I’m upgraded for another 2 days until the next WordPress update.

So why do I bring this up? I’m glad you asked.

As you’ve already noticed I gave a link to the tool I find so valuable. Not only did I link to them I used keyword rich text. I would imagine that WordPress Automatic Upgrade is a pretty targeted term for them and since that is what my link says that URL will get some help being known as an WordPress Automatic Upgrade authority because they have another link pointing to them with that title. Yes, a regular link without the keyword text would have helped as well but not as much. So again, why did I bring this up? Luckily for you, I have arrived at my point.

The bottom line is simple, the website http://techie-buzz.com/wordpress-plugins/wordpress-automatic-upgrade-plugin.html (hey another link to them!) created a great tool (aka – great content) and I (someone with a website) linked to them! They didn’t ask me to, they didn’t pay me to (although I am not above this, but that will be the subject of a future post – should I be above it?), I simply linked to them because I wrote about them and I wrote about them because they had something of awesome value!

Now I’m off to upgrade WordPress again, automatically!

By the way, the fact that this entire post was about upgrading WordPress automatically those little links have even more value because the content surrounding the links is highly relevant as well. Pretty cool, huh?!?!
