Plugins tab?

  1. Hi,

    I am trying to upload my plugin however I do not have a 'Plugin' tab in the column on the left hand side of my screen for me to click on and therefore, I cannot upload it. Do you know how I can get onto the page that will enable me to upload my plugin?

    Many thanks,
    Gemma.

    The blog I need help with is gemmamchugh.wordpress.com.

  2. As a user of a free blog at WordPress.com, you aren't able to upload plugins. We are limited to the features that are available in the menu already. The ability to install plugins is limited to sites that are hosted at third party web hosts using the free WordPress software available at WordPress.org.

    For more information on the differences between WordPress.com and WordPress.org, read the following article:

  3. Thanks very much for your reply.
    Basically, I have created a wordpress.com website to advertise myself as a clarinet, saxophone and music theory teacher. I now want to make it appear on the first page of google search. To do this would I need to recreate my website in wordpress.org and pay for it, and then upload plugins that will enable my website to appear on the first page of google?

    Many thanks, Gemma.

  4. You have a small Page based site - there is NO magic Plug-in that will get what you have to the front page of Google -

    see here for how to make your site work better in search engines: http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/

    Make some Posts about what you do and have done so search engines don't think you are dead

  5. I now want to make it appear on the first page of google search.

    Every blogger with a similar blog wants to be on the first page of Google search. Know that is not a case of throwing money at the situation. Nor do plugins make this happen.

    You site's page rank http://www.webworkshop.net/pagerank.html and positioning in the SERPS (search engine results) are based on many factors the most influential of which are the number of backlinks to your content from other sites.

  6. Hi @TT - I almost choked on my tea when I read about the Magic Page One Plug-in

    No short cuts to glory - the search engines spend a lot of money to make sure there is no magic way to game the system to page one

    I could kick the butts of every misinformed motor-mouth who creates the impression that plugins and money can put your site on the first page of Google search results.

    A blog is a post based website designed for interactive communication. Post based structures wherein content is frequently updated are attractive to search engines.

    A website is a page based site designed to operate as a one way means of communication ie. a noticeboard. Page based structures wherein content is static and rarely updated are NOT attractive to search engines.

    blog = site with post based structure being continually updated - attractive to search engines

    website = site with page based structure - rarely updated - unattractive to search engines

    Any WordPress blog can be restructured from being post based to being page based, but let's put that aside for the moment. Understand that what attracts search engines is unique content the cannot be found anywhere else on the internet and that content is found in POST based structures.
