TWIR: IFTTT to WordPress, Heatmaps, Google Publisher Plugin, Typography, What to Blog

IFTTT with WordPress

I loved doing my ‘Best Of’ links posts, but it got very hard to maintain. For one, there weren’t always 5 links in a day that I found worthy (I’m a little picky), so I’ve decided to change my Best Links Of The Day, to TWIR: The Week In Review, and do a list of the best links from the week. This way, I can be really choosy.

So, to start the ball rolling, here is my first post for The Week In Review – January 24, 2013
IFTTT with WordPress
1. Using IFTTT With WordPress
I love IFTTT, I’ve included it in posts before. It’s such a useful tool that not a lot of people are really using, so when I saw this post on using it with WordPress, I knew I had to include it today. It includes tips on using it to automate tasks with Instagram, YouTube & RSS.

2. WordPress Heatmap Options: See Where Your Visitors are Clicking
Have you always wanted to know what people are actually clicking on when they go to your site? What areas are performing & what areas are being ignored? This article has some great services & plugins to help you do that. Most are for a nominal fee.

3. New Google Publisher Plugin for WordPress Lets You Verify Your Site, Manage AdSense
In this early beta release, it includes management for AdSense & Webmaster Tools. A great addition to make it easier for people to input the necessary code as well as manage these two services. It’s still in beta though, so testing it to make sure it won’t conflict with anything on your site is very important!

4. How Typography Affects Conversions
A great article to walk you through how & why the font you choose affects your site performance. The article also describes what typography is, it’s key elements & why it’s so important.

5. 5 Ways to Find Out What People Really Want From Your Blog
Someone (possibly me!) talked you into a blog & how important it is. Great. Now what? This article gives you some great ideas on how to figure out what to blog about so that your posts are useful to your target audience.
