    basically i HATEEEEEE these things, but a client wants it so i had to go find it and i can see others may want it..... thus the post

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/mailmunch/

    i haven't used it yet but i suspect it would be a plug and play.

    Shameless plug:
    G’day! Australian Greeting WordPress Plugin

    Less than a cup of coffee, plus you can feel good about part of your purchase going towards helping others.

    If anyone here uses the Vantage theme (AppThemes product), there are a couple of advanced plugins I'll be adding to their marketplace soon. 30% of every sale from those plugins will also be donated to Australian charities.

    I've been actively contributing to causes in Australia for a long time, but this time I'm trying something a bit different. Coders.com.au is being set up as a business, but the twist is that 30% from every sale goes to charity (that's 30% of the sales price, before paying transaction fees etc).

    The site just went up (live today), so let me know what you think!

    good idea, i'm just curious what happens around the world, could this be something that happens in wordpress based on your choice of location for your site eg: spain, london, moscow, ?

    chow, bella, pleasure, mooi mooi, 繁體 | 简体

    ?

    just a thought

    WordPress displays in U.S. English by default (it's always 'Howdy'). You can install other languages though: http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress_in_Your_Language

    i think its just easier, it has tutorials, youtube tutorials from others, i also think it has a lot more $$$ behind it as it does offer advanced paid versions so i would assume they are making money and can continue to develop the free version as well.
    i think the marketing strategy for them is better then "all in one" as yoast have $$$ and can get you in on free, then temp you to pay " as you grow your business" , i think thats the business model ? and MANY other plugins use the same technique which is cool.
    but spacey the free version is pretty bloody good.
    i've left "all in one" 2 years ago and won't be going back.

    Ok I have just grabbed yoast and am wondering if there is anything/tips I need to know when setting it up ?
    I do like the seo 'score' but noticed it does not mention keyword stuffing? Also noticed it prefers you include a link. External or Internal ?
    ~
    Is there anything in the general settings I should know?

    Any views on the best sharing button > Someone likes the post and wants to share it on social media

    I was told these plugins can be draining on your site so that's why I am asking

    I might keep this question to the plugins as i have installed Yoast and for some reason the sites title is repeating at the end of the tagline, now i have Yoast but there is nothing in the Titles and Metas title template section, i did a meta description and did have a title in the title template section but erased it so there is nothing there, i would be interested to know what you are seeing at Rod.Tv (please note Cool Videos at Rod.Tv) on the first post has nothing to do with it, maybe I am just impatient and it will clear tomorrow??
