SEO plugin

    Is there a WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, automatically for you.

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

  2. There is no FTP access to free hosted WordPress.COM blogs and we cannot install individual plugins or any themes into them Those found on the internet are for WordPress.ORG installs which run on different software.

    If you wish to have complete control over a blog, the ability to upload themes and plugins, and to edit themes and templates then your option is to hire a web host and get a free software install from WordPress.ORG and self host it.

    Aside: Moreover, I have used SEO plugins on a WordPress.org install and IMHO applying SEO cannot be properly a thoroughly done exclusively by software. IMO a human being who has learned basic SEO skills is required.

    Thank you TT.

  4. IMHO learning basic on page SEO is not as difficult as some folks make out. As a former librarian and paralegal I frequently wonder why others seem to have so much trouble absorbing the basics and applying them. You're welcome and do note that I published a SEO tutorial post on this topic only 2 days ago.

    I did read some of your posts about seo and after about 10 minutes i was lost :)

  6. May I suggest that you try the latest one as it has 2 very short videos in it that are easy to understand?

    I will do TT.

  8. Bugger - I've just paid my $25 to upgrade, assuming that I'd be able to install the allinone plug-in that I use when posting for my boss' blog on here.

    I've spent all morning figuring out the contradictory advice about configuring my new google apps account to read my upgraded blog and MX info (dribblingpensioner - I think I bumped into you in the wilderness, chin equally in need of a spitoon).

    What a waste of a morning; bit naughty that - you'd think by 'upgrade', WordPress were offering you the facilities available to the self-hosted set, over at .org.

    Right then, timethief, looks like I'm heading over to your tutorials. If I pop up in your box a little later, will you be able to accomodate me, do you think?

  10. Thanks for pointing out the obvious, airodyssey.

    The point is, I was unaware that the SEO Allinone

      was
    a plug-in before upgrading. I naturally thought the SEO tool was part of the dashboard included when you paid for the priviledge, as it is so well integrated into the self-hosted wordpress dashboard.

    The fact that there are no SEO tools is seriously making me consider getting a refund - I could have just got a .org account and put the blog on iPage when I shift everything from google after NaNoWriMo.

    For the $25 I've paid, that's almost one year's membership for as many domains as you want on iPage, if you take out the 2-year deal.

    Sorry, bud - I still think it's a bit naughty.

  11. I'm using that plugin on my externally hosted blogs. It's a pain in the ass. It's ineffective. I don't even bother filling it out anymore.

    Every upgrade at WordPress.com applies only exactly to what it says it does, and confused people frequently ask for, and get, their money back.

  12. Oh, and that plugin does not even automatically fill in the areas it should, like Title (uh, shouldn't that be the title of the post? Too easy?) or Tags. You have to do it all manually.

    There are no shortcuts when it comes to learning basic on page white hat SEO. Like raincoaster I have used the plugin on a self hosted blog and then deactivated it. It didn't do the job that I can do myself.
