    [Blog] Writing For SEO: Three Rules To Kill Comment Spam On Your WordPress Blog

    Once your blog starts appearing on natural search engine results, something else starts appearing, too.

    Comment spam.

    I got asked the other day how I cope with the rubbish that gets posted automatically on Writing For SEO. How much time does removing it take up?

    The honest answer is hardly any time at all. Just two plug-ins and that’s it.

    Rule Number One: Akismet isn’t the answer

    spam variationsShocked? Akismet is the Grand Poobah of comment spam squishing. It’s pretty good, make no mistake. But I’ve found something better.

    Oh, and you have to pay if you use Akismet on a commercial blog. A client request had me looking for an alternative for their site.

    Rule Number Two: Use Antispam Bee

    I tried Antispam Bee out on Writing For SEO and was astonished that it just stopped all that bot spam – the automated stuff selling counterfeit brands that turns up in its hundreds when you turn your back for a while.

    Now, at that stage Writing For SEO was not sitting in the middle of the spam superhighway, but I have a site that is firmly positioned there – my personal blog, Dangerous Thinking, that has been around for 12 years and has been discovered by all the world’s volume spammers.

    These days, when I post to it much less often, it gets many times more spam visits than legitimate ones.

    Guess what? Antispam Bee has completely killed all the automated spam – and by the look of it the manual stuff, too.

    And neither site has Akismet running any more.

    Rule Number Three: Install Disqus

    Disqus shows comments on your blog to a community of commenters. It also looks pretty ;-)

    There are some downsides, such as delays in comments appearing as a page is pulled up, but everything is normally in place by the time a reader gets that far down the page.No Spam

    But so far, it’s caught all the ‘clever’ manual comment spams that appear here – including a hilarious recent spam from an Indian SEO company on my Google Analytics post that claimed not to be able to install Google Analytics. I almost let it stand just to make them look idiotic!

    Those two plug-ins have so far stopped a single spam comment appearing on this site since I installed them, and have reduced manual interventions to just a few minutes per week.

    I wonder if they’ll have the same effect on your blog?

    Thanks to janet galoreJamie and Stefano Brivio for making their images available.

     

    Have you read these?

  7. 90 Percent of Everything - by Harry Brignull

    [Blog] 90 Percent of Everything - by Harry Brignull: So you want to be a UX freelancer?

    People sometimes ask me for advice about getting into User Experience freelancing. Is it enjoyable? Is it worth it? Is it good money? The fact is, the answer to all these things entirely depends on you and the way you choose to run your business. Let me explain…

    Are you experienced?

    To be a UX practitioner as an employee, you only need to be good at UX. To do it as a freelancer, you need more skills. Most importantly, you also need to be able to cope with difficult business situations without panicking. What do you do when a client tries to get you do work you don’t agree with? How do you deal with a late payer? How do you explain to the boss of your client that they’re wrong?

    Mike Monteiro’s book Design is a Job is a nice litmus test. If you read it and lots of the points are obvious to you then it’s a good sign.

    Know why you want to go freelance

    Everyone has different motivations and it’s important that you understand what you want out of it so you make the right decisions. For example, when I went freelance we’d just had our second baby, which meant I had my whole family dependent on my income. I kept telling myself that money was my main motivation, so when I was offered a long term contracting role at an investment bank, I jumped at the chance.

    It turned out to be the most hostile environment I’ve ever worked in, and I quit within a few days. As a counterpoint, one of my current clients is a small charity fundraising startup. They’re awesome and I couldn’t be happier working with them.

    My point here is that if you’re clear and honest with yourself about your motivations, you will make good decisions and end up happier. Write a rule-book for yourself about the types of work you do and don’t want to do, then stick to it.

    How broad is your skill-set?

    If you’re very specialised – say you only do qualitative user research or you only make front end prototypes, then you’re closing doors for yourself as a UX freelancer. I see research and design as the yin and yang of UX – you really need a balance of both types of skill. The broader your skill-set, the wider you can cast your net for work and the longer your contracts are likely to be. Being a niche specialist certainly does help you stand out from the crowd, but it’s really useful to be able to turn your hand to anything when necessary.

    If you’re working as an employee now and considering going freelance, I’d advise you to volunteer to work on projects that are outside of your comfort zone. Focus on your weaknesses because once you go solo, you’ll have nobody to support you.

    Knowing what kind of income you need

    Before you start, you need to have an idea of what your income goal is. If you look on any UX recruiter’s website, you’ll see that UX freelancers tend to earn between £400-500 a day in London. Don’t make the mistake of multiplying it by the number of working days in a year – you won’t be wearing a top hat and monocle just yet. You’re better off starting by thinking of your current income and working out how many days a year you’d need to freelance to hit that. Speak to an accountant, as you may find you’ll pay less tax as a freelancer than as an employee (this is the usually case in the UK if you start a limited company).

    Your income as a freelancer is primarily defined by your utilisation rate (number of days worked in a period / number of working days in that period). In some agencies I’ve worked, it’s been normal for some billed staff to have utilisation as low as 50%. This isn’t really a problem since agencies tend to charge at least double a freelancer’s rate, and when staff are “on the bench” (between projects) they can turn their hand to other areas of the business like proposal writing, pitching, event organising, blogging, helping out on other projects, etc. Agencies are set up to accommodate bench time, and being on the bench is a pleasant experience.

    When you’re freelancing, the situation is a stark contrast. 50% utilisation can be very stressful. Your cash-flow becomes an obsession. When I worked agency-side I used to write a lot of proposals and do a lot of free pre-sales consultancy. I know a few freelancers who have carried on doing this after making the break to freelance. Beware of this mistake. You’ve no longer got the cushion of an agency’s day rate to behave like this. Sales work is vital for you, but you need to recognise the difference between sales and free consultancy or spec work.

    Preparing before you made the break

    I was an academic researcher for many years at the beginning of my career, so I’ve always been into knowledge sharing – writing articles, public speaking, and so on. This has helped with my visibility, but it’s easy to over-estimate the value. A few hit articles on Hacker News don’t translate into clients queuing up. One article I wrote last year on Dark Patterns got 50,000 uniques overnight. Not one genuine sales enquiry occurred as a result. It’s worthwhile doing all that stuff, but it doesn’t solve your sales problem for you.

    What helped me more was my work history – not in terms of my résumé but the personal relationships it gave me. When I started out I made a list of all the client names I’d worked for in the last 10 years. It wasn’t actually that long – about 50 individuals. Then I started thinking about all the other people I’ve crossed paths with during that work. All the project stakeholders, and all the junior and mid weight people on the teams. The nice thing about time passing is that people spread out into other organisations and your peers take on senior roles. If you made an effort to build a positive relationship with them, they’re much more likely to hire you.

    My fundamental point is that you shouldn’t always chase after the people who are currently holding the purse strings. This may sound obvious but it’s important to maintain relationships with the people you like from your prior clients’ organisations and make sure you meet up with them socially every month or so. One honest friendship is worth a hundred sales meetings.

    Know where your new business will come from

    If you haven’t got a pipeline of work coming in from direct clients, then you’ll probably end up using a recruitment agency. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but recruiters have their downsides. Firstly, they’re pocketing about 20% of the day rate they’re charging the client, which would otherwise be going to you. Secondly, they have a habit of bending the truth to you about the project and to the client about your skills. The most common horror story about recruiters is that you get mis-sold a project. That wonderful blue-sky vision project turns out to be a wireframe production line role.

    If you go to a recruiter and they line you up with a design agency, you now have 2 layers of middlemen sitting in between you and the client. Most London UX agencies charge their clients around £1000 a day. The client sees you as a very expensive resource and if they’re nervous, they’re going to quibble over every hour you bill. This means it can be quite high pressure and stressful in comparison to working for the very same client in a direct relationship.

    All that said, there are lots of good reasons to freelance in design agencies. The agency might have an awesome team you get on with, skills and methods that you want to acquire or great projects that you want to be involved with.

    To sum up – going freelance is not an easy decision to make. I hope at least now I’ve given you a few things to think about while you’re making up your mind.

    [Blog] Writing For SEO: Five Steps To The Right Keywords For Your E-commerce Website

    Finding the right keywords for your e-commerce website is absolutely fundamental to the success of your business online.

    There are lots of ways of going about Key Phrase Research (KPR). Here’s one I wrote about earlier.

    You can do some of the research using free tools, but the quality and relevance of the results will be compromised. Like in most areas of life, the most important important types of information in KPR come at a cost.

    I’ll show you what kind of information is available for free and some sources for that information. I’ll also explain where the pitfalls of using free data are.

    What makes a great key phrase?

    A great key phrase has just three characteristics:

    • Relevant to your site – you want visitors who are likely to buy your products or services
    • High search numbers – you want as many of the right visitors as possible

    • Reasonable levels of competition – you’ll want an ‘above the fold’ position on searches if people are going to click through to your sites in good enough numbers

    • If you already have some analytics data from your site, then add key phrases that are related to ones that have already worked for you.

    Let’s find some great key phrases.

    1. Brainstorm some key phrases

    BrainstormNot any old key phrases, though. Think about how you’d expect people to search to find your site. The idea is to find some key phrases for each part of your site, but don’t try to be exhaustive, the tools we’ll use will look after that.

    These will be your seed key phrases. And here are some basic rules I suggest to my clients if they are unsure how to go approach this task:

    • Group your keywords according to product type – that’s have a list for blue widgets, a list for green widgets, another for striped widgets, and so on
    • Aim for between five and 10 seed key phrases in each list

    • Don’t be too general. Make sure your seeds are at least two words long

    • Don’t be too specific, either – ‘stage 2 green widget with 4.25mm reverse thread’ may be a big seller for you, but it’s way too far down the long tail to help you as a seed

    • If you already have data for how your site is performing, you should include key phrases that are already converting – leading to sales – in this list. Some more of the same would be excellent!

    2. Find some alternative key phrases

    You now have a list of key phrases that you think people will use to find your site. Now you can find out what people are actually searching on.

    There are all sorts of free tools (you may have to open an account to use them) out there on the Internet to help you do this, such as:

    • Google Keyword Planner – you’ll need to have a Google AdWords account to use this, but it’s many people’s first port of call for expanding their list of key phrases
    • Wordstream Keyword Tool – data from its own database.
    • Wordtracker – has been around for years, and some people swear by it
    • SEO Book Keyword Tool – global data only (no good if you want, say, UK search results), but from a range of sources
    • Ubersuggest – one of my favourites for basic key phrase suggestions

    All of these tools give you a measure of how many times these key phrases are being searched on – their popularity. If they’re a good fit for what you’re selling, they could bring you lots of potential buyers – if you can rank well for them.

    3. Will you be able to rank for the key phrase?

    Just because a key phrase has a lot of searches, it doesn’t mean it’s the right one for you, even if it is very relevant to what you want to sell.

    You won’t get a lot of traffic from such a key phrase if you only appear on the fifth page, say. You need to pick out key phrases with lower levels of competition, as you should be able to rank higher for them in a shorter time.

    Here’s how you can assess the competition for the key phrases you’ve found.

    4. Follow the free but potentially inaccurate route

    If you have access to the Google AdWords Tool, you can get data about the cost and competition for PPC clicks and key phrases, while others such as Wordstream give you a measure of competition.

    Many people say you now have an indication of how much competition there may be for natural results, too. The argument goes that the more people are willing to pay for a click on a key phrase, the more valuable that traffic is, and the more likely site owners will be spending time and resources on securing a high organic ranking.

    Put another way, the higher the PPC bids, the more likely there will be high levels of competition for natural listings.

    5. Choose the more accurate route that costs you money

    If you’re serious about your e-commerce website, the free route will almost certainly not be good enough for you. The relationship between PPI Love AccuracyC bids and organic competition will be too indirect for you to place much faith in.

    Getting better and more accurate data will require you subscribe to one or more paid services and run more complex analyses.

    Some time ago my business partner, Paul Silver, built an in-house custom tool to assess competition for key phrases, and I use that alongside some commercial services – I’m always trialling one or another so see if I can improve the quality of keyword insights and the efficiency of my workflow.

    • Moz.com. When it comes to worthwhile KPR, all roads lead to Moz.com, whose Page Authority and Domain Authority measures are used by many people comparing the level of competition and some tools as well. A Moz subscription will cost you from $99 a month
    • Long Tail Pro. A tool that gives you fast insights into competition for key phrases, using its own Although it was designed for a specific purpose – setting up niche sites – it can be used for KPR for most sites. You’ll need a Moz subscription as well
    • SEMrush. Last, but not least, a huge armoury of data and tools you’ll useful as you progress with key phrase research.

    I’ll be writing more about how to do key phrase research in the coming weeks, but if you want some professional help, please take a look at my Key Phrase Research & Content Strategy service.

    Thanks to George RexAndy Mangold and brett jordan for making their images available.

    I post a few links on this site every day—around 4 or 5, on average. If you subscribe to the RSS feed, then you’ll know about them (I also push them to Delicious but I don’t recommend relying on that).

    If you don’t use RSS—you lawnoffgetting youngster, you—then you’d pretty much have to actually visit my website to see what I’m linking to. How quaint!

    Here, let me throw you a bone in the shape of a Twitter bot. You can now follow @adactioLinks.

    I made a little If This, Then That recipe which will ping the RSS feed and update the Twitter account whenever there’s a new link.

    I’ve done same thing for my journal (or “blog”, short for “weblog”, if you will). You can either subscribe to the journal’s RSS feed or decide that that’s far too much hassle, and just follow @adactioJournal on Twitter instead.

    The journal postings are far less frequent than the links. But I still figured I’d provide a separate, automated Twitter account because I do not want to be that guy saying “In case you missed it earlier…” from my human account …although technically, even my non-bot account is auto-generated: my status updates start life as notes on adactio.com—Twitter just gets a copy.

    There’s also @adactioArticles for longer-form articles and talk transcripts but that’s very, very infrequent—just a few posts a year.

    Not only will there be the fantastic annual Maker Faire on Saturday, September 6th, but there’s also an Indie Web Camp happening at 68 Middle Street on the Saturday and Sunday.

    We had an Indie Web Camp right after last year’s dConstruct and it was really good fun …and very productive to boot. The format works really well: one day of discussions and brainstorming, and one day of hacking, designing, and building.

    So if you find yourself agreeing with the design principles of the Indie Web, be sure to come along. Add yourself to the list of attendees.

    If you’re coming from outside Brighton for the dConstruct/Indie Web weekend, take a look at the dConstruct page on AirBnB for some accommodation ideas at very reasonable rates.

    Speaking of reasonable rates… just between you and me, I’ve created a discount code for any Indie Web Campers who are coming to dConstruct. Use the discount code “indieweb” to shave £25 off the ticket price (bringing it down to £125 + VAT). And trust me, you do not want to miss this year’s dConstruct.
