How do we get attention like Asanusta?

  1. I notice that Asanusta is getting a lot of attention under topics.

    As best that I can tell, this is just a blog: alpeynir.blogspot.com .

    Can you give my blog this level of attention?

    Regards,

    Wayne

  2. Look around the forum and you'll find thousands of tips for getting more readers.

  3. RainCoaster,

    He/she is getting a seperate category on the topics page.

    That is very high profile space for a blog.

    If I had that space, i.e., there was a "luvsiesous" spot on the topics page, a lot of people would be directed to my blog just because it is a new topic.

    And they could actually read my blog. The native language for asanusta is not easily translated.

    I am paying for this product, and I would like equal treatment.

  5. We Volunteers cannot help with this issue. We bloggers each assign our own Categories and/or Tags to our own posts. The posts appear automatically under the Category/Tag assigned to them in order by datestamp at publication. If you feel the Categories and/or Tags assigned to the posts on any blog are not appropriate please use the Help link on the top right hand corner of your Admin page and report this to Staff.

  6. Time Thief,

    I respect your time.

    WordPress does not.

    Either they begin to respect their user community, or smart users will move to a better product.

    I do not have time to waste on happiness engineers. I need real TECH SUPPORT. And it looks like I will need to move to a better platform soon .... and I was getting ready to load their product on my other domain for my business.

    But, tech support is not responsive on wordpress. And their badwidth keeps slowing down my web page delivery .....

  7. @luvsiesous2000
    It's my experience (almost 6 years here) that traffic flow from the global tag pages (no-follow links) is negligible. Google and other search engines do deliver siginficant targeted traffic to my blogs. raincoaster,who has been here a couple of months longer than I have been, has reported the same experience ie. no sigificant flow of traffic from the global tag pages.

  8. If you need that kind of tech support, you can expect to pay $60 an hour and up for it.

  9. I respect what you have seen.

    But, I have seen the opposite - over just the last week. Admittedly, I am rebuilding my readership base. So, unlike users who have been here, I do not have thousands of readers already.

    I have noted a reasonable gain from each post as it hits the tag cloud. Now my gains are measured one new reader at a time, and sometimes a couple of new people followed my blog.

    Unfortunately, the heuristics of this product are TERRIBLE. So, I do not know for CERTAIN .... people could just be randomly typing in my web site address just to see what might be at that address ..... But, I really doubt that.

    I haven't bought the google heuristics packages yet, but I think I may ....

  10. Raincoaster,

    That is a third of my get out of bed price. I set that when I was a high-end DBA. I realized that anything not worth being done right was not worth it.

    I am blogging.

    Anything (including the UI software I am using - wordpress) that gets in the way is costing me $200/hour.

    The reason I did so well as an engineer is that I thought that way for me AND MY CLIENTS.

    I would never tell my clients that it is "my way or the highway" UNTIL after I had them on board with the change and WE HAD MADE THE CHANGES ....

    You can joke about being a tyrrant when there is no fear.

    But, to constantly abuse their client base is NOT GOOD BUSINESS. IMHO.

    The last couple of days, WordPress has stolen about 4 pages of productivity from me. I will never get that time back.

    Regards,

    Wayne

  11. The last couple of hours the lost productivity has climbed outrageously ....

    Posts are being lost.

    Things work one minute and then quit and then start again.

    My heuristics went crazy. (Stats). I had 60+ in a day, and then 42 in under an hour and then ZERO in 50 minutes .....

    I am seeing issues from my windows and my mac box.

    I can post on some pages, others I cannot. And I don't know what will survive till tomorrow.

    I thought having to manually code html links was a burden ....

    PS - Yesterday, I would have hightly recommended WP, right now, I would not recommend WordPress for Content Management.

  12. I do not have time to waste on happiness engineers. I need real TECH SUPPORT.

    Like I said, if you want support like that, you can expect to pay $60 an hour and up. So find someone. I'd charge you $300, myself.

    We are volunteers in the forums. If you want staff support, ask them via your Dashboard Help button. If you want to hire us, let us know in this thread.

  13. You are keen, Raincoaster - I haven't worked out what his problem is yet.

    Wayne, for an engineer OR a high-end DBA you write a terrible trouble report.

    Now let us go back to the initial question - if the blog you are talking about is a BLOGSPOT blog, then it is not going to be listed in WP topics pages, now is it?

    I don't know what your problem actually is.

    As for slow pages, perhaps you need to redesign your content!

    I believe $2,700 is the going daily rate, by the way.

  14. My normal rate is $200 an hour, but for some clients, you quote higher.

  15. One could also spend a couple of hundred or thousand dollars for a ghost writer.

  16. You could hire a codepoet. Code Poet is a directory of WordPress professionals, web designers, and developers brought to you by Automattic, the company behind WordPress.com and the largest operator of WordPress sites (30 million and counting).
