Someone fill me on how to RSS & Ping to Index WordPress Pages/Posts?

Had a site with 1,200 pages indexed, new website dropped down to 175, and now for the third time another new website to finalize the project. Entirely new pages, new everything, trying to figure out how to get a ton of pages and posts indexed…

So what exactly does RSS do? And what does Pinging them do? (Familiar with ping somewhat-ish, does it just tell the search engine to crawl this page and visit it)..

Have a brand new wordpress business site, add 400 pages by the end of the month, what’s next? Where do I begin or start?

Is there a template for users to easily submit videos like YouTube?

Would be also nice to limit the a) file size or b) length

You’d be looking for a script not necessarily a template, though most scripts will include templates.

Just google "youtube clone script" or "video sharing script"

There are literally hundreds of different scripts to choose from.

cheaper than paying someone to make it for you

It is cheaper than having someone pay it for you. Just know though, custom stuff – though with a hefty price tag – usually pulls out more income afterwords since ANYONE can setup a site clone, yet what makes the site different?

php help

I think I fucked my custom_functions file up. Won’t allow me to add anything after the last function. Did I not close it right? I can’t figure it out.

Best Way To Get Users For Start-up?

Looking to see what some people’s opinions and strategies are for getting initial members on a new start-up of a user content submitted website.

Do you launch the site with a small amount of content and simply allow people to join? Or do you prefer locking the site out for a few weeks before launch with a "request to join" email signup, and after having a large batch of emails, have a large group of people signup all at once?

What other strategies are there, and how to advertise the launch apart from twitter/facebook?

Setting up a test server for my girlfriends business… quick questions

Girlfriend and her business partner want a website so I thought I would show them a couple wordpress/joomla templates they could do on the cheap.

I have a server I run at my place with windows server 2012 r2 that I put both joomla and wordpress on. I’ve bought the domain and pinging the domain I get a reply from my external ip address. The router is setup to forward port 80 to the server’s (static) Ip address.

On the server if I go to localhost it goes to windows server r2 essentials remote web access.

Photo upload solution?

Looking to create a photo upload page on my site where guests of a wedding/event can upload individual photos, multiple photos, or as a zip file.

I’d like for the photos to go into a specific folder I create then have those photos randomly displayed and changed every 2-3 seconds on the same page as the uploader.

I’d like to be able to do something mobile as well but that might be a little more challenging. Something for mobile users to upload to.

Should I get a Credit Card/Debit Card for my business checking account?

I do freelance web design on the side and I have a business checking account setup through my bank. I don’t have a lot of business expenses, so when I do I’ve just been using my normal credit card. But I will soon be buying some new hardware and would like to keep my business purchases separate from personal purchases. I think I can get a debit card through my bank, but would a credit card tied only to my business account be better? Does it have to be a "business" card, or will any card be ok? Thanks!

Facebook and Google Analytics

Does anyone know how to make facebook ads track in google analytics without creating a separate landing page or mirrored site for those ads? I’m showing lots of clicks on facebook but am having a hard time tracking the results of those clicks in my analytics.

Don’t trust Google Analytics with my data.

Probably flip to Mixpanel soon, using this as a temporary solution but this is screwing me up. I know my cost/user but don’t know if the FB ads are higher or lower for the sake of scale-ability
