Download another QualityScores wordpress creation today and start improving your organic traffic!
Rand just published a “Headsmacking Tip” this morning about the importance of researching and optimizing your blog post titles and content before hitting ‘publish’…and roughly 24 hours before he published the post, I wrote to our lead wordpress programmer about developing a plugin that let’s us do exactly that!
We planned on using the KeywordDiscovery API – and still will – but we wanted to capitalize on Rand’s suggestion and simply make the free keyword research tools easily accessible from WordPress while you are writing a post!!!
How to install:
1. Upload the file `post_keyword_research.php` to the `/wp-content/plugins/` directory
2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
3. Simply write a post and note the research links below your submenu and to the right below the ‘save’/'publish’ button.
Here are a few screen shots of where the research links show up (2 locations) – these links open in new windows so you can simply click on them while you are writing and begin your research! Hooray!
Under your submenu:
Under the “Save”/”Publish”/”Related” section:
Introducing the Link Builder for WordPress
The Link Builder simply tracks the websites and pages you link to and sends an email message to that website owner/administrator notifying them of your link.
Then watch this video (update: haha – if you turn up your volume, you can hear a ‘darth vader’ breathing effect from my mic…sorry!) to learn how to configure and use the plugin:
You can read the readme.txt file for installation instructions here.
UPDATE: Reminder - you MUST remember to edit your config file! And this is not a 100% automated tool – it is designed to be personal while simplifying your link building efforts.
Other Plugins that are built for SEO/Link Building from WordPress
Internal Link Building by SEOROI – This looks like it’s an awesome tool although it didn’t work with our admin/theme/template for some reason…haven’t had a chance to look at it but it’s received rave reviews so we recommend giving it a shot yourself!
All In One SEO Pack – One of our favorites. You control title tags, descriptions and keywords for every post and page or you can let the pack update them automatically!

The new look is what we are.
Fresh, vibrant, green and fun!
Shane Snow is the genius behind the new design – and in fact, we have given him a new official title to add to his box of titles – lol – he is now our copywriter and creative director. That’s really where his best experience and expertise is…he has already rewritten some of our ads for clients and they are decreasing costs per conversion even more! I have asked him to start blogging about copy writing ads for ppc, landing pages, etc. Let’s hope he posts something awesome soon!
