SOME OF YOU have dabbled in Plugins which can help you increase web traffic, speed up your website, compress your pictures and a whole lot more.
But if you are like me, and you’ve paid for hosting through WordPress, you’re going to feel shafted and crippled. Never good. Unless that’s your thing.
I signed up for a .com WordPress site, which believe it or not (Ripley!) is different from a .org WordPress site. Incredibly, if you have a .org site, you have access to a plethora of Plugins, such as SEOYoast which you can install to optimise your site, increasing traffic being the obvious imperative. But if you signed up with the .com WordPress, in essence the exact same thing, you cannot install Plugins AT ALL. The option isn’t there on the menu, and never will be, see WebTegrity video below. Supposedly WordPress optimises .com sites but we have zero input.
I’m not sure if by registering my site with a .org domain as well would solve the issue, but I’m not impressed either way. There is no warning from WordPress that .org might be the better option when initially signing up to create a site or blog. Back to writing!!!
