Find out who’s scraping you!

Find out who’s scraping you!

Sometimes you just need to know who is linking to a blog, or even better, your competitor’s blog, or who’s scraping it, and you’d actually like that data in a format you can use. I thought I’d make a list of the sources you can use to gather link-data from, outside of the “obvious” Yahoo…

Speed up WordPress, and clean it up too!

Speed up WordPress, and clean it up too!

Every once in a while people will ask me to fix their blog, because it’s either slow, or broken. When it’s not something to do with their WordPress hosting, (some hosts are just plain bad and slow), most of the time this is caused by either broken plugins, or broken themes. There are a few…

Playing with the X-Robots-Tag HTTP header

Playing with the X-Robots-Tag HTTP header

Ever since the announcement on the Google Blog and more recently Yahoo’s announcement that they’ve enhanced their support for it, I’ve been meaning to play with the X-Robots-Tag header. This HTTP header allows you to do what you’d normally do in a robots meta tag, in an HTTP header, which has some pretty cool appliances.…

Update to users to CSV plugin

Update to users to CSV plugin

I’ve just updated my plugin to export all your blog’s users, or even all your commenters, to a CSV file. The plugin now exports the first name, last name and nickname into the CSV as well, and leaves out some of the stuff it would previously export too, like password hashes. This plugin, aptly named…

Reputation Management done right

Reputation Management done right

Danny was doing the right thing today. He made a mistake, and corrected it. This is what reputation management is all about. Not all SEO’s are spammers, and we all have to work hard to make sure people stop seeing all SEO’s as such. The last sentence from the article: I’d love to push the…

Link request mistakes…

Link request mistakes…

Sometimes you get email from people asking you for a link, and their requests just demand that you out them… I’ve decided that from now on, everyone who emails me with a stupid link request e-mail, which shows that they did not look at my site for longer than 1 minute, will get a blogpost,…

Update to Robots Meta plugin

Update to Robots Meta plugin

I’ve fixed a few bugs in the Robots Meta plugin which might have caused the disabling of certain pages not to work, due to the fact that I was a sloppy in whether certain variables were in scope or not. Also certain stuff was deprecated or it’s functionality has changed within WordPress since the inception…

Technorati Ping Bookmarklet

Technorati Ping Bookmarklet

Sometimes I don’t want to run my growing set of tools to ping Technorati, but simply want to ping one or a few posts, without having to go to the manual ping form. So I’ve created a small

Linking out? Make sure people notice!

Linking out? Make sure people notice!

It happens to me more then a few times a day at the moment, which is quite a luxurious position I guess, that I see new unique referrers in my statistics. These are new sites linking to me. But sometimes they’re not… Sometimes, it’s a post that has been there for 3-4 weeks, or even…
