2017 #WordPress: A Look Ahead (http://gplnk.us/2kksa7o)

2017 looks set to be an exciting year for WordPress. For us, 2017 means more time spent connecting with communities across the country. We love to meet our users and the greater WordPress community; expect to see us out and about across the UK at local meetups, usergroups, and every #UK #WordCamp event in 2017.

Hint: WordCamp London 2017 (#WCLDN) is right around the corner, come say hi!

Here is what Mike Little, WordPress co-founder & specialist, said most looking forward to in 2017:

“I’m looking forward to seeing what the new development regime Matt Mullenweg mentioned in his State of the Word at WCUS will bring. I’m also excited to see what the next part of the REST API being in core will bring to WordPress. Finally, personally, I’m looking forward to the new year and new opportunities!”

Take the 80/20 Approach to Blogging
Here is some advice from our co-founder...

"Take the 80/20 approach to blogging, 80% of your content should be the posts that you know your visitors like. Use the other 20% to experiment with new ideas," says 34SP.com's +Daniel Foster.

"You’d be surprised by the number of businesses getting this wrong, and if they happen to be one of your competitors you could do well by perfecting this."

This makes a lot of sense. You want to "give the people what they want" and keep them coming back; however, there may be topics that they didn't even know they wanted to learn about, so it makes sense to cover some of those as well.

Have you started blogging yet? Our website hosting services are designed to meet a wide variety of needs of bloggers, developers, designers & small businesses. See our hosting plans here: http://gplnk.co/2jYpJvb

How To Make Money From Your Blog (http://gplnk.co/2eKDQ5y)
Part 2: Intermediate

Whether you are a new blogger or have been blogging for awhile, there comes a time when you are ready to move beyond just Affiliate Links and Display Ads (discussed in the beginning of this article) as sources of income for your blog and begin to try your hand at Product and Service Sales, Freelancing and Paid Promotions – Sponsored and Underwritten Content.

That is not to say that you shouldn't continue using the methods outlined in the beginner's portion; remember, successful bloggers diversify their income, meaning they make money from a variety of different sources. The difference between the beginner sources of income and the intermediate level is that the latter is going to take more work and will be more difficult to implement; however, the payoff can be greater as well.

If you’re willing to put forth the effort into blogging on a regular basis, and as you grow your audience and hone your skills, you can build multiple income streams to earn more and more money.

The beginning of this article can help you determine the methods you’ll use to start making money immediately (beginner), as well as identify anything you’d like to start working towards (intermediate and advanced). Each item discussed will go over the pros and cons of the individual method, as well as give you some blogging tips that will help you on your way.

A great tip to remember is to make sure that your blog complements your products and services and are both directed at the same audience. For example, if you are planning to write a weight loss book and sell it online next year, tailor your blog to attract people who buy weight loss books and begin building your audience.

For those who are interested in trying their hand at freelancing, go back through your blog and improve your old posts. Clients will be looking through your content to see if you’re consistently good.

If you are ready to include sponsored posts on your blog, remember to only promote businesses and products that have some kind of value for your audience, and that already market to the same demographic. If you do this right, your subscriber list will actually grow.

We hope you are finding these tips helpful and that it has rejuvenated your interest in blogging to earn money.

Please be sure to leave questions and comments for our guest author, Ms. Kitty Lusby, on the article.

Working w/ #WordPress Every Day (http://gplus.ly/2fy9G11)

"There is always a solution." - Phil Barton, Systems Developer at 34SP.com

Today we wanted to reshare this 'techie' post from Phil Barton. Phil is a Systems Developer at 34SP.com, working to create and maintain 34SP.com's range of hosting products. Phil can usually be found at Manchester based hackspaces and user groups, which he uses to hone his skills and knowledge on cutting-edge technology.

We recently came across a situation with a plugin/theme combination called the Unyson framework, also known as Theme Fuse, that was affecting one of our clients.

The issue was in part related to the secure way in which we separate WordPress core files from the wp-content on our WordPress platform.

Unfortunately, we came across a bug in the Unyson framework code, which meant that a large part of the theme was incompatible with our WordPress hosting platform. At this point, what can we do? Give up and tell our customers that this theme is unsuitable for our platform?

Absolutely not. There is always a solution.

Read how our team reached out to the larger community to fix the problem... for both our client and for Unyson as well. The fix was accepted and merged into the production code for Unyson Framework.

Find That Perfect Domain Name! Save 50% on our most popular domain names throughout January. (http://gplus.ly/2i70dPW)

Are you still looking for that perfect domain name? If so, in case you missed this post the last time we shared it, here are our 6 Top Tips to help you find it!

1. Keep it short
When it comes to domain names, size matters. Keeping it short doesn’t mean you should turn your business name into an acronym; however, the shorter it is the more memorable and easier to use it will be. Here are two points to keep in mind that will help you with your search for a short domain name:

- All the 3 and 4 letter domain names are currently taken, so start your search with 5+ letter domains, but aim for under 10 letters if possible.

- Try and keep the domain name to two syllables or three at an absolute maximum.

2. Choose your residence
Many people ask whether they should choose the .co.uk or the .com as their primary domain name. The answer is solely based on your preference. If you are a business based in the UK and your market is mainly UK residents, then a .co.uk holds more sway with search engine ranking than any other domain extension, so this is an easy choice. That being said, it’s always good practice to buy the .com too as .com is the standard top level domain name extension and the most popular extension on the web.

3. Make it memorable
Memorable domain names are exactly what they say on the tin, easy to remember. So pick something that is easy to spell and feels catchy to you. It doesn’t always need to be whole words; however, pronunciation is key.

4. Make it brandable
Competition is fierce so having your own strong brand is important. Make sure that name is brandable, make sure it’s available on your chosen social media platforms before you buy it.

5. Don’t rely on keywords
Some people buy domain names with keywords in just for SEO purposes. Whilst we cannot really know the ins and outs of Google’s algorithms, we can say that the value of having a keyword or buzzword in your domain name is no longer valued as highly by search engines.

6. What about new gTLDs?
If you haven’t heard of the new top level domain names yet they come in endless shapes and forms. Instead of the classic .com or .co.uk you can now also choose from extensions such as .business .team .company .tv and many more.

If you ever need help purchasing a domain name, contact our sales team. We would love to hear from you and your choices for domain names.

Search for your perfect domain name: http://gplus.ly/2i70dPW

How To Make Money From Your Blog (http://gplnk.co/2eKDQ5y)
Part 3: Advanced

The first two parts of this article cover some of the basic ways to make money blogging, including Affiliate Links and Display Ads (discussed in the beginning of the article) as well as adding additional sources of income, including Product and Service Sales, Freelancing and Paid Promotions – Sponsored and Underwritten Content (discussed in the middle of the article).

Always remember, successful bloggers diversify their income, meaning they make money from a variety of different sources. The difference between the beginner sources of income and the intermediate level is that the latter is going to take more work and will be more difficult to implement; however, the payoff can be greater as well; and, you may eventually move on to what is perhaps the most difficult yet most lucrative stage of blogging, Building Your Brand and selling YOU.

In the beginning stages of blogging, this can be a difficult concept to grasp... and this doesn’t have to be your goal. You can make a significant income from the other methods listed in this piece without ever executing a complicated business plan to turn your blog into a marketable brand; however, if you do, you can earn money from things like product endorsements, speaking engagements and appearances, and collaborations with other successful businesses.

Blog flipping, also called domain flipping, operates on a similar principal. Some entrepreneurs will start a blog and build a following, creating some value for the brand, and then sell that blog to eager buyers for a potentially large sum of money. It’s the same thing as house flipping or selling off a successful startup business but in the virtual world.

We hope you are finding these tips helpful and that it has rejuvenated your interest in blogging to earn money.

Please be sure to leave questions and comments for our guest author, Ms. Kitty Lusby, on the article.

How To Make Money From Your Blog (http://gplnk.co/2eKDQ5y)
Part 1: Beginners

If you have ever thought about being a professional blogger but were afraid that you would never be able to make money blogging or had no idea how to go about it, then this article is for you.

Successful bloggers diversify their income, meaning they make money from a variety of different sources.

If you’re willing to put forth the effort into blogging on a regular basis, and as you grow your audience and hone your skills, you can build multiple income streams to earn more and more money. To give a sense of that progression, the various blog income sources in this article are grouped by "beginners", "intermediate" and "advanced".

This article can help you determine the methods you’ll use to start making money immediately and identify anything you’d like to start working towards. Each item discussed will go over the pros and cons of the individual method, as well as give you some blogging tips that will help you on your way.

Before you get started, here are a few things to think about:

You will need traffic to see results.
This can be achieved by posting on a regular schedule, by reading and commenting on other people’s blogs, and by writing great content. These are basic "Blogging 101" and are the first steps towards building a following.

A personal journal is probably not going to make you money.
If you want to blog for a living, you need to focus your content on a specific subject, brand, or idea.

There is no such thing as a blog 'for everybody'.
You need to know what kind of audience you’re writing for. The more specific you can be when focusing on an audience, the bigger your audience will grow, because you’re speaking their language and giving them something they want to read.

The beginner portion of this article will cover the pros, cons, and tips for getting started with Affiliate Marketing and Display Ads.

The intermediate portion covers the pros, cons, and tips for Product and Service Sales, Freelancing and Paid Promotions – Sponsored and Underwritten Content.

The advanced portion covers the pros, cons, and tips for Building Your Brand, which can lead to product endorsements, speaking engagements and appearances, and collaborations with other successful businesses.

You can read ahead if you want, or just start with the beginner's portion. Please be sure to leave questions and comments for our guest author, Ms. Kitty Lusby, on the article.

- All the 3 and 4 letter domain names are currently taken, so start your search with 5+ letter domains, but aim for under 10 letters if possible.

- Try and keep the domain name to two syllables or three at an absolute maximum.

2. Choose your residence
Many people ask whether they should choose the .co.uk or the .com as their primary domain name. The answer is solely based on your preference. If you are a business based in the UK and your market is mainly UK residents, then a .co.uk holds more sway with search engine ranking than any other domain extension, so this is an easy choice. That being said, it’s always good practice to buy the .com too as .com is the standard top level domain name extension and the most popular extension on the web.

3. Make it memorable
Memorable domain names are exactly what they say on the tin, easy to remember. So pick something that is easy to spell and feels catchy to you. It doesn’t always need to be whole words; however, pronunciation is key.

4. Make it brandable
Competition is fierce so having your own strong brand is important. Make sure that name is brandable, make sure it’s available on your chosen social media platforms before you buy it.

5. Don’t rely on keywords
Some people buy domain names with keywords in just for SEO purposes. Whilst we cannot really know the ins and outs of Google’s algorithms, we can say that the value of having a keyword or buzzword in your domain name is no longer valued as highly by search engines.

6. What about new gTLDs?
If you haven’t heard of the new top level domain names yet they come in endless shapes and forms. Instead of the classic .com or .co.uk you can now also choose from extensions such as .business .team .company .tv and many more.
