Should you use Comment Luv plugin on your WordPress Blog

Comment Luv, One of the most Popular plugins available for wordpress that most blogs opt. Many bloggers use this plugin to encourage their readers to leave comments. An article which is having a large number of comments has high reputation in front of its visitor. But even with this main feature many bloggers don’t like it to have on their blog. So lets use discuss why and why not people like comment luv in their blogs.

Comment-luv-plugin

Why people don’t use Comment Luv Plugin.

 

I found that many users online don’t love this plugin because of some reasons. Below are some of reasons.

 

No-follow Links downgrade value of your site.

It is the major factor which prevents bloggers to use this plugin in their blog. One of my friend told me that “No-follow is no more completely ignored. Now google share your link juice and page rank with the site you linked”. According to him now giving links to poor website [Even no-follow] makes a negative impact to your links.

But according to me it is not true upto some extent. We should love to link commentator who gives time to comment in your blog, and this doesn’t makes any big bad impact on your blog internal linking.

 

Poor Loading time and larger page Size.

Another myth in the mind of non-supporters is that “Using this plugins reduces load time and increase size of the Page”. This is true upto some extent and as you know they also consider load time as major Ranking factor. But I don’t think that it should make any big difference. By using good CDN plugin you can handle this issue easily. So you can use comment luv plugin if you are scared of this issue.

 

Increase in spam Comments.

This is the main reason that popular blogs don’t use this plugin. If you have a new blog then it is perfect to get several comments on your blog. But if your blog has quite decent amount of traffic with comment luv then your blog would be targeted for spam comments. This is true, but it is not enough to change one’s mind to not to use this plugin. There are several free plugins like Akismet, Growmap anti spam bot, which will reduce automated spam bots. Only you have to deal with real human spammers.

Benefits of using Comment Luv Plugin.

 

Benefits of this plugin is quite large and its small demerits fades in front of it. I would like to point out some big advantage of using this plugin.

 

Encourage Commentators on your blog.

If your blog is quite new or if you want to get more comments in your articles then you must have comment luv plugin installed on your blog. This plugin will encourage your readers to leave a comment as they will get a reward to leave their latest post link along with their comments. But you should be ready to tackle the spam that some individuals would do.

 

Increases your Traffic via Search Engines.

Many of the people might not give attention to this feature but its true that this plugins drive traffic to your blog via search Engines. Now let me tell you how, If any one searches on google for anything and that keyword matches the luv that one had left in your blog, then your blog will show in the results. Hence it increases the keywords of your blog too. And gives you the traffic of such articles that your probably do not have on your blog.

Redirect traffic from blogger/blogspot blog to another site

Hello friends, As we know that most of the blogger including me, started from blogger and further moved to WordPress. Most people migrate their site to wordpress, and import all the old articles with Permanent Url redirection. It is a vital and recommended tool when your old blogspot blog niche matches with your new blog’s niche that is on wordpress. But in few cases people leave blogger website behind and start new self hosted wordpress blog.

When it comes about having different niches on your old and new blog then you shouldn’t leave your old blog like a crap. You should utilize the traffic from your old blogger blog to redirect some traffic for your new blog. And yes, today I am going to tell you the same thing i.e., How to redirect traffic from blogspot to another website. Its very simple just follow me.

blogger-redirection

 

How to redirect traffic from blogspot blog to another website/url.

 

To do this, you just need to go to HTML editor and find the following piece of code (ctrl + F).

<head>

And just below it paste the following line.
<meta HTTP-EQUIV='REFRESH' content='0; url=http://rigglr.com'/>
<meta content='NOINDEX, NOFOLLOW' name='ROBOTS'/>

Note 1 : In the above Code “Content ‘0; means the time (in seconds) the visitor will stay at your old blog before being redirected to the new blog. I had already set it to zero but you can change it according to your need. Also replace “rigglr.com” with url of your new blog.

 

Note 2 : <meta content=’NOINDEX, NOFOLLOW’ name=’ROBOTS’/> Asks Search engines to not to index posts from your old blog. This secures your new blog from getting penalized for duplicate Content, as pages indexed from the old blog would take some time to de-index and thus it will behave like you have copied from old blog. This is very important if you want to redirect your traffic without any loss to new blog.

 

Done… Friends, now enjoy traffic redirect from your old blog to your new blog/website/url. Hope you enjoyed my article, give some time to comment and appreciate my work. 🙂

Benefits Of Premium Hosting Over Free Hosting

As a Blogger I know that every one wants to spend as much less amount to run their blog. Thanks to Google that they have provided an awesome platform of blogger.com so that everyone could create their blog without spending a single penny. Coming back to the Topic, to continue your blog you have to pay for Hosting. Because of this big reason many bloggers start their blog with free hosting, believe me free hosting is just a crap they will just withdraw all the promises they do in their features. Instead of free hosting you can go for Blogger.

So I am here to share some Benefits of premium hosting over Free hosting.

 

Hosting Limit

 

In order to provide free hosting no one can provide you unlimited Bandwith and Space, they must add some limits to provide free hosting to everyone. Also they limit you in other things like you cant host unlimited domains. If your blog reach bandwith limit then no one will be able to access your blog, and if it last longer it will de-index your site from Search engines.

On the other hand Hosts like “Hostgator” give your unlimited hosting without restrictions.

 

 Premium-Hosting

 

Security

 

Another major risk of free hosting is that your blog/website has always lack of security as free hosts never focus on your security. There are high chances that something will go wrong sooner or later.

Paid hosting is completely different they run advance security software tackle with disasters. You can trust on Premium and Famous hosts which has been known and trusted by many people.

 

Server Speed

 

Similarly free hosts use slow connection line which will provide low loading speed and bad user experience. Big loading time effects SEO badly and will throw your SERP at last.

Whereas Premium hosting use premium connection which will give faster loading time and thus better user experience.

 

One-Click Script Install

 

Free hosting usually doesn’t have features of one click Script installer, resulting you may have to manually download, upload install the script which is very annoying.

But many Premium hosts have one Click Script Install feature with the help of Softaculous, Fantastico etc.

 

Suspension Problem

 

The biggest threat for free hosting user is that their account can be suspended with/without any reason thus all the files and databases will be lost and probably cannot be recovered. Free hosts have rights to suspend your account and you can’t question.

On the other hand Premium Hosting promises you that they will backup your data, compensate with server down time. There are very few chances of suspension in Premium hosting (Suspension might be done if you violate their terms and condition.)

 

Support

 

Again another big help that you get from Premium hosting that most them Provide you with Live 24×7 online support, they also have features to submit ticket.

And in free host as you know there is no major support system, they don’t have live chat support . Even your Help tickets are neglected or unanswered by them.

 

Final Words

 

I was too using free hosting in earlier stage of my blogging carrier but sooner I got many problems like Downtime, Server outage, Poor support and less bandwith, Space for my website. Even I was having problem to upgrade my WordPress version.

According to me free hosting is just a crap and if you are serious for blogging, close your eyes and go for Premium hosting. Spend some bucks and go with popular hosts, believe me they will give you awesome features.

Tip #1. Don’t click you own ads : Adsense is very sensitive on ad clicks if you do clicks on your own ads and if they found that that these clicks are not done mistakenely then they will immediately ban you without prior warning. However if you accidently click you ads then report them about invalid click before they can find them use this report form scroll and click ” Policy voilations ” link – Adsense contact support

 

Tip #2. Don’t ask anyone to click your ads : Don’t ever think to ask anyone to click your ads, if you do so then adsense will ban you if they don’t then they will start giving poor ads to your site which will give you less revenue as fraud clicks to your ads will not give profit to the adwords advertisers.

 

Tip #3. Don’t use paid to click websites or person : If you feel that you can fool the giant google then you are absolutely wrong google is above all. If you use any online paid to click bot or any adsense clicker then adsense will definitely ban you without listening any of your arguments.

Tip #6. Don’t use adsense ads on sites which violate adsense policy : If you even place you ads of adsense on any site which is related to hacking or cracking or proxy servers. Porn sites haven’t got approved yet. One of my friend has placed adsense ads on porn site mistakenly & he got adsense banned and was like helpless.

 

Tip #7. Don’t use keyword Stuffing : Trying to put the main keywords in your all posts again and again? Then forget about this, as adsense will ban your site and you will not be able to display ads on your site. Even with fully approved adsense account.

 

Tip #8. Don’t put ads between small posts : You can display ads in between posts if it is more than 300 words. If it is less then don’t display it between article instead of it you may put it at beginning and at the end of the post.

How to Increase Google Adsense CPC easily

Adsense the renowned brand in the internet for advertising. Adsense is most popular just because of their high CPC and good relations with Adword advertisers. If you are a blogger then adsense will be the main source of your income. However adsense approval is too tough but you can try our tips which is discussed here.

How to Get adsense Approval Easily.

When we talk about adsense optimization we basically think of getting high eCPM, Cost per click and CTR. I know that you are here because you are in the categories of that people whose earning is quite low as compared to traffic. You are advised to focus more on CPC rather than to focus on CTR. You can give attention towards below mentioned point to increase your Cost Per Click Effectively.

adsense-cpc

How to increase Google Adsense CPC easily.

 

Keyword , niche and topic

Adsense has  a nice features which shows ads according to keywords on that page. Adword advertisers bid on Keywords, so you must have little figure out what to do to increase your adsense CPC. Yes, you have to concentrate on the keyword and your niche. Now you might ask why niche and topic? Just because Niche and topic decides your keyword. You must find out high paying keyword for your blog.

Usually free stuffs get less CPC than paid one. Reason is simple just because no advertiser would pay more for the things that they couldn’t sell. Similarly Adword Advertisers won’t pay much for freebies. So always try to put keywords which gets money ads i.e., in which advertiser can promote their product or services which they sell.

 

 

Balance ads slots with content for high CPC.

People usually use all three ads slots to get most of their content. Are you also doing the same? If yes then do you take care about the article size and Ad slots ratio? Probably most of the people would say no. This is the main reason for less cpc. I would recommend to use all 3 ads only if you have enough content to support it. Adsense suffers and fail to give high paying and intresting ads if you do not have much content. Ultimately you will get clicks but no earnings because of low paying/ irrelevant ads.. As I told earlier always concentrate more on CPC rather than concentrating on CTR.

increase-adsense-cpc

 

Reduce Fraud, Accident Clicks

Everyone wants to earn more and more with adsense. Even many people have asked me how to get more earning with adsense, Many newbies want trick to earn more with adsense. But infact there is no trick which will fool adsense. Google is very smart and if you try to click on your own ads with different IP or insist your friends to click on your ads then Google will reward you with low CPC and poor ad serving.

Don’t blend your ad slot with your theme too much. I mean your visitor should clearly differentiate with content and ads, as google is instantly notified if anyone just open advertising site and close. So it will result in huge loss in your CPC. Google is very sensitive and loyal toward there adword advertisers, if advertisers found that they are not getting benefits that they expected by your blog then you will get poor quality ads and your earning will depressed more that before.

 

Final Words :

Blogging is not very easy task to do, Its similar to other earning sources. You need to work hard and have patience. There is nothing like spells which will boost your earnings overnight. Blog frequently, every time you blog you will get to know something. Content is the main key to CPC in adsense,

 

  • Keep publishing articles on  a regular interval.
  • Write for your readers not search engines.
  • Don’t gather all your ad slot at one place.
  • Don’t use poor ad serving company with adsense.
  • Experiment with ad slots and colors but not again and again.
  • Don’t just blog for money.

 

Give quality content to your readers, patience, time and devotion will definitely make you a good and successful blogger.

Google Adsense Pin Not Received – How to verify my Address?

Google Adsense Pin Not Received – How to verify my Address?

First of all Congrats to you, as you are here because you are a Google Adsense account Holder. Google Adsense is the backbone of any blog. Many bloggers depend upon Google Adsense for their primary source of income. But before sending the first cheque they verify your address. They send you a 4-digit verification Pin (Personal Identification Number) as soon as you reach 10$.

 

 

 

How much time it takes to reach Adsense Pin.

 

Usually it doesn’t takes much time but in India it takes almost double time as mentioned. I heard that one guy from India received his pin after 41 days. In the worst cases people can’t receive their adsense pin even after requesting thrice. Google Adsense gives you 3 tries , that means if you haven’t received your pin in first attempt, you can request 2 more times.

 

Google Adsense Pin Not Received yet, What to do ?

 

Some times users doesn’t receive their Verification pin even after three attempts. But not to worry, Google gives you an alternate option to remove Account hold from your Adsense Account.

 

  • Method 1 : Recheck your Mailing address again, if its wrong then inform Google so that they Can send the pin again.
  • Method 2 : After three attempts, another option appears in Google Adsense account to verify Adsense pin by Uploading Digital Image of your Government issued ID card or any other Document like Driving licence, Bank statement (which contains your address).
