Many of these cell phones will not be able to see your blog or site because of the mobile browser it’s a little different than a typical web browser like internet explorer or Firefox.

Securing Your WordPress Blog

Albert I think your blog has been hacked! This is the email I got from one of my friends and I said, “Are you sure my site has been hacked, my blog is very secure.” So I thought but these folks have too much time on their hands and can figure anything out.

But you know what? When your site gets famous some folks they just want a piece of you 😀 This actually happened last year and I talked about it here on my blog on my post on Nov. 05 2009 “Protect Your WordPress Blog and Your Business” and since then I am always researching for additional security measures that I can add to whatever I have installed in my wordpress.

But also I wanted to let you know so you too can have this extra security for your own wordpress blog. I found this pretty cool plugin for wordpress that scans your theme for virus vulnerability. Watch the video below and find out:

Oh here’s the link for the AntiVirus plugin just download and upload this to your wordpress plugin directories and activate it so you can have additional protection to what you already have.

Like what I said there’s no such thing as bullet proof protection so always take extra precautions. Check out Alex Sysoef blog post “WordPress 3.0 Security Design…” I learned a few things and I think you should read it (Link is NOT affiliate).

Well I hope this helps and please always take your security or securing your wordpress blog seriously because it’s a nightmare to go through all this mess, you will lose lots of hours and it can take days or more to fix everything.

Well maybe you won’t be able to fix it at all if you don’t know what you’re doing so always learn what you can do to protect your wordpress blog. Also please, please spread the word and share this important information with someone who needs this info.

BTW: If you have any questions about “Blogging For Business” or you want me to do this for your business, Please give me a call 702-430-1649.

The Power Of WordPress Platform

Today is Monday the day I’m writing this blog post and as usual I am working with some projects of my regular clients and some new clients as well. When I fired up my computer I had Skype message notifications popping up like mushrooms.

I got tons of messages, one was from my sister in-law and it looks like we closed the deal for our Doctor client and I am very happy because this is a great project also I get experience working with a doctor.

I was thinking man, WordPress is really powerful stuff because I did NOT pay a dime to get all these clients it’s all referral but of course anyone can simply refer anybody the real action is when that business visits your actual site/blog to see who you are and how are you going to help with their needs and problems.

When potential clients visit my blog they’ll see all my blog posts starting from the most recent one and they can also go to the archives and from there they can see if I’m the right person for their project, and many times I get the call because my wordpress blog speaks for me and for all of what I’m doing.

They can see that I’m consistent they can see the design is great, it’s easy to navigate and is just a great users experience and these folks want the same thing for their business. You see you need to have a powerful and effective web presence and that’s what wordpress does.

WordPress has the interactivity feature when you post your content and your visitors or potential customers are able to comment and express their opinion and how they feel which is necessary for your business to establish that connection to build a solid relationship with them.

WordPress is so powerful even Matt Cutts who works for the Search Quality group in Google, specializing in search engine optimization issues and well known in the SEO community, said on his interview with Pubcon (Las Vegas) That, “If you’re using wordpress it’s doing all the great stuff for you on your site as far as SEO,” (search engine optimization.)

NOTE: When you click the image it will take you to the actual interview just keep in mind the interview is 10 mins long but just listen to the first few minutes about what he says about wordpress.

Google's Matt Cutts gives tips to small business owners

Now folks this is coming from Google’s perspective so that just tells you that if you’re using wordpress you’re in the right direction. For all of you small business owners if you’re not using wordpress yet as a central hub for your business this is your chance to really take advantage of wordpress and it’s FREE you can’t go wrong.

Also since worpress is open source there’s plenty of plugins you can use to make it more powerful. But of course you need to make the wordpress work to your business advantage meaning, customize it, put your business brand or your personal brand on it and use the wordpress platform to connect with your target market and potential customers.

And check this out folks even Harvard University is now using a wordpress blog platform:

Harvard Gazette Online

So this tells you that wordpress is the way to go when it comes building your central site or central hub for your business and please take advantage, c’mon it’s free. Well I hope this would help you and give you an idea on how to structure your business blog and I hope also that you put into action.

BTW: If you have any questions about this or if you want to get started with your Blogging For Business or you need to setup your WordPress the right way and brand it, Please give me a call 702-430-1649.
