Recommended Semantic-Ready Plugins for WordPress Themes

By April


During Hump Day Hangouts Episode 66, one participant asked about recommended Semantic-ready plugins for WordPress themes.

The exact question was:

I don't want to use NE WP Semantic Theme for my Money site because they are not pretty (but they rank like crazy). What semantic plugins do you suggest I use for my beautiful WP theme (unfortunately not semantic ready) besides the Add-Meta-Tags mentioned by Chris??

This Stuff Works

What Are The Must Have WP Plugins?

By Semantic Mastery


During Episode 46 of our weekly Hump Day Hangouts a viewer had a question that comes up frequently – what are our favorite WordPress plugins that tend to be installed across many sites and for many situations?

The exact question was:

You mention that you have a template site that has specific plug ins that you always use. Question- What are the must have plug ins for your any word-press site? (not the security plugins)

We compiled a quick list of free and paid plugins that we tend to use widely, while mentioning that there is no “single list” of plugins that you want to use on every site! This is due to various reasons, but the most important being that not all sites share the same intent or purpose and your plugin and design is therefore going to differ. That said, here is the list of plugins that we consider must have's for nearly any site!

These plugins can perform many of the tasks or setup options that might be required of a base setup – after that it's up to you to customize!

Although the viewer mentioned non-security plugins, we felt we HAD to mention Wordfence Security so that as many people as possible at least take into account the security of their site and hopefully protect it as well as possible.

Adam: Welcome to your HumpDay Hangouts. Today is the 16th of September. This is episode 46, so we're rolling right on towards 52 straight episodes here. We're going to keep our finger crossed. Everybody stays healthy and be able to make this so we can hit our year mark. Let's see. Almost everybody; Chris is not with us. He's out. I believe he's doing a marketing conference, but we do have Hernan, Marco, and Bradley. How's it going, guys.

Hernan: Hey, everyone. It's good to be here.

Marco: Hey, everybody. What's up?

Bradley: Hey, guys. It's me, Bradley. Adam, your video or camera is not working today. What's up with that?

Adam: Really?

Bradley: Yeah, it's just a black screen.

Adam: It's just awesome new webcam I got, I guess.

Bradley: I think it's probably operator error. It's most likely.

Male: That's too bad.

Bradley: Now I can see at least your image. That's better than nothing. Okay, guys. We don't have really any announcements other than, like Adam said, we're 6 weeks away from 52 weeks, which is our 1-year anniversary. We haven't missed a single week yet, so knock on wood, we'll make it another 6 weeks. If we do, we're going to be doing something special. We're gonna leave it at that, so just count on for our 1-year anniversary. We're going to be doing something special so, guys, be on the lookout for some more announcements as we get [closer 00:01:34] to it. There is Adam. Adam, say hi.

Adam: How's it going? Sorry about that. That was maybe user error but we'll never know.

Streamed live on Feb 11, 2015 – SEO Help – Questions & Answer – with YouTube time stamps –

YouTube Video Optimization

1:00 Below are Questions Regarding my personal You Tube Channel:

Are all the video I create for clients hosted on my personal YouTube channel / account with playlist corresponding to the niches or verticals mentioned above?

Are these videos then linked to the Tier 1 corresponding persona properties i.e. Pets, Medical, Legal, and Home Improvements?

When you use the term money site is my personal YouTube account my money site?

301 Redirection for Money Sites

12:00 Using 301 redirects to protect money sites, or as a buffer when you’re doing client work. and were mentioned but they wouldn’t be the best option since you can’t change the link.

Another option that Bradley says he uses more often, is to buy an expired domain, do all the SEO work on that domain, and then do a 301 redirect from there to your client’s website?

And if I understood correctly there was also a third option, where you could do a meta refresh from a Weebly site? Does that mean you would do a 301 redirect from the domain you bought to Weebly, then Weebly to your client’s site?

Could you please elaborate a bit more about creating these buffers to protect your work?

Existing YouTube Channel and Ownership

If a client already has a Youtube Channel, and asks you to rank both his existing videos and all the new ones you create, how can you create a bufferto protect your work?

20:00 What if the client is afraid of losing the investment they made with someone else who created the video? Because you would be “owning” or taking away a video they paid for?
