In this article you will discover a pretty useful plugin for optimizing images on WordPress without losing quality.

WordPress plugin to Optimize Images for web

image optimization

Images are optimized to speed up your website.

Seemingly open the graphics file in Photoshop, click “file” → “save for Web” and the trick is done. But the images on website have been accumulated. Here’s the question: “is it possible to optimize all the photos at once, using any WordPress plugin?”. The answer is Yes.

How to add reCaptcha on wordpress blog

Welcome to the plugin WP Smush. Interestingly, it treated all images media library fully automatically. PageSpeed Insights was pleased.

And in Photoshop to catch this line when further optimization will go at the expense of quality, almost unreal.

Installation and use WordPress Smush plugin for optimizing images

Download the plugin (WP Smush) from the official Depositary of WP at the address https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-smushit; Sometimes it is also happened that when we upload a plugin than there is different kind of errors arise like WordPress Memory Exhausted so click it to find its solution.

image-optimization-2
– Install the plugin just like all other plugins and activate it.
On “Media” menu you’ll see a new item “WP Smush”, click on it.

WP Smush Pro version has more advanced features but we use a free one:

-“Smart compression”, the picture will lose weight in 2 more times without loss of quality
– Ability to backup, return the original image from the backup
– Processing of files larger than 1 MB;
– No speed limits processing (it’s better to slow down, there’s no hurry for us to be less load on the website);
– Works support (and why you need it?);
– Access to other premium plugins and themes (well, this good and so in bulk).
I never tell you to spend money if your relevant work is done in free version. If anyone still tried the Pro version, please leave your feedback in the comments on it.

image optimization

If you check the option “Auto-Smush images on upload”, then the plugin will automatically optimize all new images uploaded to your website. Intelligent compression and backup options in the free version are inactive.

Clicking “Bulk Smush 50 Attachments”, you can start the process of optimization of all previously uploaded images of your website. When processing is complete, a portion of the 50-minute images, click the button again.

At the end of the process, the button changes to a green which means “All Done”. Click on it to finish.
You can reduce the weight of the individual images, by choice. To do this, go to the media library on the link “Media Library” or “library” link in the Admin Panel.

By pressing the “Smush Now!”, opposite of the image you are optimizing.

image optimization

I advise you, in advance, save all the images of your WordPress website on your computer before their optimization. If you don’t know how to make a blog on wordpress read it.

In this article we will discuss about how to install reCaptcha in WordPress. You may have noticed a new “anti CAPTCHA” called “reCAPTCHA” at Google.

Its a very convenient and not necessary to solve a set of written symbols, clumsily which cause only irritation, just click in the box “I am not a robot” and that’s all.

The reCAPTCHA can be installed on your own website. In addition to facilitate the visitors, it is also more reliable protection against all sorts of spam.

After installing the plugin on my website, I just forgot about comment spam and automated spam registration on the blog, I no longer weigh in nightmarish dreams.

Add reCAPTCHA to website or installation of reCaptcha in WordPress or instructions on how to install reCAPTCHA on your website

1. Go to https://www.google.com/recaptcha/admin#list on the Google page with installation instructions of reCAPTCHA to your website.

2. In the first part of the instructions, you will receive two keys-simple and complicated (the secret), they’ll need soon.

recaptcha wordpress plugin

Go ahead. If the first part of the client-side integration all clear, then server-side integration has put me at a standstill and forced to stop. To install reCAPTCHA on your website, it is suggested you to use “no captcha recaptcha plugin”, written specially for this, by the way is not the only one, but the most suitable for us.

3. Download no captcha recaptcha from the page https://wordpress.org/plugins/no-captcha-recaptcha/.

It is worth noting that all the spam comments collected automatically by reCAPTCHA and will fall into the cart.

Any problem in WordPress can be addressed and it does not need any special skills of work with CMS. Today I will tell you about the most common problems or errors that occur occasionally in WordPress, and i will try to describe the detail process of elimination as well.

9 Common WordPress Errors and their Solution

Here is the list of most common errors in wordpress:

500 Internal Server Error

Error Establishing a Database Connection

HTTP Error 403 – Forbidden

Connection Timed Out

Cannot Modify Header Information

404 Error in WordPress

Fatal Error – Undefined Function

WordPress Memory Exhausted

WSOD – White screen of death

1. WordPress 500 internal server error

One of the common causes of internal server error is due to incorrect configuration of a specific file named “.htaccess” located in the root directory of the website. You can access this file through your admin panel/Cpanel. For internal server error 500 there are 3 possible solutions we can try:

500 Internal server error

i. You can made changes to solve this issue, log in to your server, go to root directory, open the file named “.htaccess” in notepad and remove the last added line of code, and update the file, it will possibly recover your website to the previous stage.

ii. Delete this file from root directory and go to “Settings” in “WordPress” click on the link named “Permalinks” and click “Save” and that’s it. It will automatically create the new file with fresh code in the root directory, and your site will start working as usual.

iii. You can view the report of your website error(s) in the file named “error_log” also located in root directory of your website panel.

2. Error Establishing a Database Connection

As name of error “establishing database connection” simplifying to understand the cause, the system cannot connect to the database server, means configuration error with website database located on your server.

Establishing database connection

Some possible solutions of wordpress database connection error are here:

i. MySQL server is not running usually occurs on VPS servers. You need to restart the server. If the problem is not solved, contact to support of your hosting/server.

ii. A wrong configuration in a specific file named “wp-config.php” located in root directory of the website; it is possible that username, password or any database name is typed wrong or without quotes. Open this file in notepad and read all the options to find out any mentioned mistake.

iii. You may have limited access to your database, you can change the access from your WordPress settings, change the access permissions and then test again, and hopefully wordpress connect the database and error will be gone.

iv. Least but possible issue might be hacking, that your website have been hacked, definitely the link between your website and database will break and you will face wordpress error establishing a database connection. You can check your website through a specific remote scanner and it is free as well https://sitecheck.sucuri.net

3. HTTP Error 403 Forbidden

The page or resource you are trying to access is absolutely forbidden 403 to reach out. This error usually occurs with the absence of “Index” file in your website directory.

HTTP Error 403 Forbidden

Possible steps can be taken to eliminate this error such as:

i. You have the wrong file in your server, correct file must be named “index.php” or “index.html”; it could be any depends upon your selection pattern. In some cases file is simply missing so create it. So you follow the steps by searching “How to create index file for WordPress”

ii. The problem with the rights. Perhaps you have exhibited limited rights to your index file. Should perform rights for file and parent categories.

iii. The file has been uploaded to a different directory. Find the index file and move to the root folder of your website.

4. Connection Timed Out

Mostly occurs when the server is rebooted, unreachable, or subjected to a DDOS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack.

Connection Timed Out

Possible steps you can do to eradicate connection timedout error:

i. Check your WordPress plugins and remove the old one’s which are not in use.

ii. Increase the RAM to your WordPress from your server.

iii. Reset your WordPress theme to default and restore you last working backup of website.

5. Cannot Modify Header Information

Appears mainly because of gaps or error in the code of a specific file named “wp-settings.php” this error is easy to resolve because it provide you details, for example (category/wp-settings.php line:78). This means the error is in “wp-settings” on the line number 78. Here is one solution I can provide on this issue:

i. Download the file name “wp-settings.php” and open that on notepad, delete the spaces filled with ++ and save the file again to recover from the error connecton timedout.

6. 404 Error in WordPress

WordPress 404 error is generated by server, when request page of URL does not found. It likely happens in WordPress as well, here are some solutions to resolve 404 page not found wordpress error:

i. It usually happens due to non configured permalinks, it can be fixed very easily through your WordPress panel. Go to “Settings” click “Permalinks” select the link type and save changes.

404 Page not found

ii. If error still exists, try to disable the specific plugin which redirect pages, if you are using any.

iii. You can disable all your plugins one by one, like disable one plugin, check error, if still available, active that plugin again, and disable next, and check website.

7. Fatal Error – Undefined Function

This is a simple error, means auto update system has failed. In this case you need to roll back the website in working state by using backup then update your WordPress version manually. This is it; fatal error will be resolved for sure.

Fatal Error Undefined Function

8. WordPress Memory Exhausted

WordPress memory exceeds when your website crosses the limit of using the RAM allotted by server. Here are some solutions for that:

WordPress Memory Exhausted

i. Log on to the server and see how much RAM is available and how much is allocated for your website.

ii. Change the setting of the file named “wp-config.php” by adding more memory. Find the line “define wp_memory_limit 32M” specific digits will be there, such as 16M, 32M or 64M. Suppose if the written value is 32M you can change that with 64M and so on. Note that your allotted RAM should match your server specification.

iii. Plugins use a lot of RAM, my suggestion is not remove or disable all problematic plugins and find a replacement.

9. White Screen of Death (WSOD)

White screen of death wordpress error mostly occurs while installing or editing plugins, it can also happen due to the non updated plugins in your WordPress list. WSOD (White screen of death) means just a blank white screen nothing else, each time you try to reach your website just a blank white screen.

White screen of death

Some simple solutions we can follow are:

i. Rename the plugins directory and create a new folder, transfer the plugins from directory one by one to check the conflicting module.

ii. You can change the design of your theme from your admin panel, this helps most of the time, or you can change the name of your server to the default, it will also restore your website in live mode.

This is not a complete list of errors that may occur in WordPress, but these are the most common error. A general solution for all the WordPress error is to avoid incorrect configurations, it is not a rocket science to learn about configuration, more than 90% steps in WordPress are automated, all you have to do is pay attention. Avoid not worthy plugins, do not play with codes, and the most important thing is updating, do not skip any recommended updates of WordPress.

In the end I always said the same thing 🙂 To answer all your questions and comments is my high priority.

7 Easy Steps to Install Joomla

As Joomla is the well known CMS around the web and also easy to operate, it is the frequent choice of beginners after WordPress. Features and interface is very friendly to manage your content without having any professional expertise. That is why I am here to guide you as simply as I can that how to install Joomla.

Installation of Joomla does not represent any difficulties; whole process takes a couple of minutes. In order to start Joomla installation you need to download the latest version of Joomla from the official site or any official partner or source. In our case we will go to joomla.org to download the latest version. You can also read about basic features of Drupal

Now simply follow the steps:

Step #1

Download the latest version of Joomla from the official website, by just clicking “blue section” in the image, do not click on the image 🙂 do that on Joomla official site. It’s just a screenshot to help you understand, it is taken from the official Joomla website.

How to Install Joomla 3.5.1

Downloaded file will be zipped; all you have to do is unzip that file before installation.

Step #2

After unzipping the files you need to upload them to your hosting/server using FTP (File Transfer Protocol).

How to Install Joomla 3.5.1

If you need to install Joomla to some of your specific website on your server, you need to upload those files specifically in public_html folder.

Step #3

MySQL database creation is the next step after uploading the Joomla files into server.

How to Install Joomla 3.5.1

You need to create the username and password for your MySQL database in this step to move further for installation.

Step #4

Now moving to start installation, previous described steps were the base to create the field of installation. After uploading the files successfully in your website public_html folder via ftp, you will simply go to your website URL and you will be redirected to the first step of installation shown in the image below:

How to Install Joomla 3.5.1

This step is the main configuration of Joomla, here you will select username, email and password for your account. Make sure not to choose admin or administrator type of usernames, first of all its very common and secondly easy to hack. Use your valid email address because it will be used as your recovery email in case of any confirmation about your Joomla account.

Here also add your site name and a brief description about your work. Due to tutorial I am selecting the “No” option in site offline section. You can choose whatever you like, description is explaining results.

Once you done with all your configurations and data entry you can simply hit “Next” button to move ahead.

Step #5

It is always a good option to go with “Backup” because it will keep the backup of your old database. However it’s up to you. After completing all the option again click on “Next”

Step #6

You will be forwarded to next and almost concluding step to finalize your installation, where you will be asked about installing sample data to your webpage to check its working or not, or how it looks like.

How to Install Joomla 3.5.1

Priority option is to go with “Default English (GB) Sample Data” and click “install” after clicking you will be moved to the second page of installation where Joomla will show the compatibility of the features like:

How to Install Joomla 3.5.1

If your server will meet all the Joomla requirements you will see all checks in green, in case of any mismatching green will turn into orange. After that you have to hit “install” button finally.

How to Install Joomla 3.5.1

On this page you will see the button saying “remove installation folder” you have to press it due to secure your website not be reinstalled by any other. You website will be totally functional after you remove your installation folder.

5 Factor that causes the Google deindexing Pages

No matter you are a beginner or experienced webmaster, it is a most likely issue that Google or any other search engine is not indexing your web pages, or you are losing your already indexed pages or even deindexed site from google. There are definitely reasons for that, let’s try to understand and fix the issue.

deindexed-site-from-google

There could be various reasons that website is facing the fall out of indexing, but in most cases, the problem is the site itself. Here we will consider the most possible reasons of google deindexing pages.

5 Possible reasons of Why my Site get de-indexed from Google

1. Low Quality Content

Due to the massive expand of content on the web, quality competition is pretty high, and Google is also making efforts to clean the bad content to make the place for good quality content. In that manner it is quite possible that low quality content pages will be replaced with good quality content pages in index.

Let’s expand the discussion on content, because it is the key factor, which can cause the decrease and increase the indexing.

1.1. Spinned Content

If you ask my personal opinion on such type of content, I just hate spinning. We all know what content spinning is, this is a definite thing which will damage the reputation of your website from both ends, user and search engine.

Certainly the use of spinning for content is a worst choice of content, and you will face the decrease in your number pages deindexed from google and I can guarantee that.

How-to-Promote-Website

1.2. Copy-Paste Content

This is the most awful form of laziness that you copied already published and also indexed content, paste that on your website and publish that again, and that’s it. No matter you change the title or synonyms; it will remain copy-paste content.

No matter if someone is so smart in creating the copy-paste content look like newly written; he/she will get caught by search engine, using such prohibited technique.

There are consequences as well; page published with copy-paste content will be removed from index. Remember Google always love quality and uniqueness.

1.3. Copyrighted Content

Copyrights show the ownership. Use of any copyrighted content is the direct violation of the policy of ownership and it is also illegal.

deindexed-site-from-google

Publication of any copyrighted content is also against the rules of Google, and there is no need to tell you about the reaction of Google, when someone breaks the rule.

All further actions will be taken afterwards, but first step of search engine will be to kick out your page from index and then penalize your website.

2. Hosting Problem

This problem is common among those who tried to save money on their web hosting. Server or host must be solid, because cheap hosting can be down several times a week. Then what will happen? Huh! Google knows. 🙂

deindexed-site-from-google

Google bots will deliver your site down time to search engine, and search engine has no space for such sites, website will be kicked out slowly and smoothly from the search index.

However, this reason is quite rare. To avoid this reason, I advise you to read the article: how to choose hosting.

3. Excessive Outbound Links

This reason is quite common, especially among inexperienced webmasters. Beginners want to make by selling links from their new site to some other newly created website, but without knowing the consequences. It makes the website worthless, until the end of it. There are lots of earning sources which you can read here: How to make money from a blog

Do not create excessive outbound links in your WebPages, because Google does not allow such page in the quality ranking. Aggressive use of outbound links will make your website suspicious and you will definitely not like the results.

Most commonly Google will start penalizing your Webpage by kicking you out from search engines indexing.

If you want to be indexed again, do the opposite, remove all the useless and point less outbound links from your website.

4. Errors in Website

Well, this is not a common factor, but it could be one. Use of malicious or poor codes in your website will make search engine to ignore your website by all means.

deindexed-site-from-google

Some errors in the website automatically force search engine not to index the pages, without letting you know that.

Personal Tip: If you are having any indexing issue, please check robots.txt file before getting panic. 😀

5. Search Engines Glitches

In my personal experience glitches happen about once every six months roughly, we have nothing to do in such case rather than wait.

Due to some updates or any change in search engine algorithm it shows glitches. You can judge that by analyzing your number of index, suppose it was 100 yesterday and it came down to 20 today, and then after 3 or 4 days index goes up again on 100. This is search engine glitch.

But it is very rare to happen; mostly the above discussed factors cause the fall down in index.

If you are the victim of de-indexing you should definitely follow the lead to check all your SEO strategies, and if just want to satisfy yourself while talking about the fall down in index, you can say to yourself, Cm’on it’s just a glitch. 😛

You questions will be much appreciated, please let me know if I skip something, or anything should be in more details. I always try to be simple and conceptual; however, it is not so difficult for me to increase the number of words of my article. 🙂

10 Key Features of Drupal Content Management System

features-of-drupal

Drupal is also a CMS (Content Management System) like WordPress, Joomla etc, but obviously with the change of features. Every CMS is used to create websites and various applications. However Drupal has some extra features as well, as compare to other CMS, it is more professional to work with. Well, I am not here to differentiate between Drupal and other CMS, but only to provide information on Drupal Features.

Great features of Drupal have made it very popular among developers of websites. This CMS is written in Php and requires MySQL database. It works perfectly well with various web servers such as Microsoft SQL Server, Apache, MySQL. In addition it also supports Flash, Flex, Ajax, Java, Php etc. Drupal is very friendly CMS, which does not require any highly professional skills to manage it. Some built-in features are very useful according to the version, such as basic SEO settings will helps in promoting the website.

features-of-drupal

Let’s ahead toward some best features of Drupal, which will help you to understand more about this CMS:

1. Drupal is suitable to create simple and multifaceted websites.

2. It has the ability to work with cross platforms as well. Integration is easy.

3. Drupal provides a lot of free themes and templates for your website solution.

4. You can create multi-lingual websites through Drupal.

10. Drupal provides a starter-kit to enhance your experience and to collaborate with other open sources.

features-of-drupal

Drupal is well suited for creating various business projects and websites, most often this CMS is used in corporate sector and to develop personal websites too. I must say, in the manner of Drupal integration with external services and applications, no other content management systems are much dominant and excellent.

Like all others CMS Drupal also has versions, Drupal 6 and Drupal 7 are mostly used versions, but after the launch of Drupal 8, it become more easy to understand this system and to gain more strong hold on your web and app management. Drupal 8 is the most efficient update ever, creating content is much easier now and all the themes are pre-responsive. It has 100 languages in database.

In my opinion, for beginners, it is always better to start with the latest version. Drupal is an open source software and it’s free for always, anyone can download and use. I don’t think something more important than that is left now 😛

Please let me know if I miss any detail or summary, your comments and questions are everything to me, believe me, I mean it 🙂

Here we will discuss about how to promote a website on search engine. Promotion of website in search engine is very interning though challenging process. For that purpose you must need to know at least some basics. However many people think that it’s a very easy and simple process, and then I ask myself a quick question, why they are still not in the top rankings? 😀

How-to-Promote-Website

I always mention one thing, that getting result is all about hard work and patience. It’s a simple policy to follow.

It is impossible to explain all aspects of SEO in one article, but I will try my level best to cover the basics only, and how to identify SEO mistakes. This discussion will help you understand the keen reasons that why your website is not making any progress or your optimization is slow.

Without basic SEO knowledge it is pointless to talk about the promotion of website. Search engine algorithms are constantly improving and ranking factors are also growing. Competitors are increasing like mushrooms, and promotions are spreading like virus. In such battling situation it is very hard to promote your website for free even a step up. But it all will happen if you are not aware of basics about promoting a website. So, there is always a hope. 🙂

How-to-Promote-Website

While promoting websites I will roughly presenting my ideas and experience, which will definitely work in general way.

Marketing Strategy to promote a Website or

Top Ways to promote a website in Search Engine

1. Internal Optimization

This factor is for user not for search engine, and search engine do not like those websites who are not user friendly, a non user friendly website can never get ranking in any search engine. In my opinion importance of this factor is 30% out of 100%. We can say On-Page SEO optimization is linked to search engine but indirectly.

How-to-Promote-Website

Your web presentation is your On Page, to make it better we do optimization, and collectively we call that On Page Optimization.

Now we know the drill in very simple words, all we have to do is to make our presentation better than before.

In order to improve internal factors of your website, there are some basics I can mention to you:

> Site Speed

> Attractive Layout

> User Friendly Structure

> Crawler Friendly

> Use Essential SEO Tags

> Content Management

> Avoid Grammar Mistakes

Above mentioned basics are the key factors to improve your On-Page SEO, as we are talking about basic strategies for website promotion and today my circle of focus is providing you only basics. Details will make you feel sleepy 😛 Detailed article is also available what are the top SEO ranking Factors? You can dive in if you want.

2. Website Behavior

In the end of 2014, Google and other secondary search engines properly started to judge website behavior in order to deal with rankings, as this part also does not belong to search engine directly same as the above case. In the manner of SEO, importance of this factor is 10% out of 100.

It is very simple to improve the behavioral factors of the website by simply following some basics such as:

> Satisfy User Needs

> Create Interesting Sections

> Add New Content Constantly

> Improve Graphics

By the way, if you are following the lead, you will be able to cover this factor in On-Page Optimization; however website behavior is an individual factor of importance.

3. External Optimization

The opposite of Internal Optimization or On-Page SEO is called external optimization or Off-Page SEO. It is the most important factor for the promotion of a website. This part has nothing to do with user, it completely belongs to search engine. I must say it is the determining factor in the rankings.

How-to-Promote-Website

This factor includes inbound links with other websites, and most important thing is quality not quantity. It is not a big deal to get bunch of backlinks but poor quality. Search engine always consider the quality of your backlink. In my opinion 1 good quality inbound link is much better than 100 bad quality backlinks.

One Personal Tip: Websites, who sell links or offer for free to everyone at anytime, avoid such links, because quality and quantity can never be on the same page. Such backlinks will only harm your ranking position.

Some basic factors which should be taken care while performing Off-Page SEO:

> Work Niche to Niche

> Avoid Irrelevant Links

> Check Donor’s Website Repute

> Ignore Quantity

> Focus on Quality

While promoting website you should divide your strategies among these 3 basic SEO factors like, your requirement is 100%, then give 60% to Off-Page SEO, 30% to On-Page SEO and 10% to behavioral SEO.

3 Off the Record Mistakes

i) One very common and lazy mistake is to use SEO back-linking generator software, for those who still use such technique I must say to them, “wake up guys” its 2016. In 2009 to 2010 it was easy to deceive Google or any other search engine, but not today. All inbound and outbound links must be natural and humanly placed.

How-to-Promote-Website

On the other hand, how you can expect a bot or machine to think like human mind? It is only possible in fictions, and Google hate Sci-fi movies 😀

ii) Work without follow-up is a waste of time, most of the time some of our SEO experts got inbound links, and then stop working. What happened then?

Links became dead or frozen, due to zero follow-up on Off-Page strategies. SEO is not a onetime thing to perform, due to huge completion in search engine ranking, all your inbound links must be checked often. In simple words you can say that “Continuity is the key to success in SEO”.

iii) Breaking the chain of continuity in your SEO routine will make you suspicious. Any unnatural process is not considerable for Google and other search engines as well. I definitely need an example here to make my point clear, let’s say, you worked really hard and good too for 1 month, and after that month you left your work for next 2 months, then after 2 months you start your work again and you worked hard for 2 weeks and then you again left your work for 1 month, this is breaking the chain of continuity, which will make your website suspicious in search engine, and all your hard and positive efforts will be for nothing.

I hope that you find this discuss about how to promote your website online for free informative. Please let me know if I skipped anything, or something should be in more details. If that so, we can discuss that in our comment section, I would love to have your questions. 🙂
