Classic WordPress v Gutenberg Block Editors

It’s all in the name ‘classic’ classic infers something that worked- that’s quintessential and time honoured but now we’re moving on: classic is dead Z classic is dead. Make way for the BLOCK! Even the name sounds ridiculous.

Why? Block is not user friendly-it’s too demanding, too confusing, too all over the place- irregular and anomalous.

At least the choice is still there but it’s constantly demanding use BLOCK. No I won’t!

STOP WORDPRESS.

Sometimes you wonder is it that software developers are sitting there navel gazing wondering is there anything to do?  I know let’s make some changes. And changes are good if they are done for the right reason-not just change for changes sake.

I know says dev we are WordPress mo’k?  Then Gutenberg the first press- yaw- that’s it we’ll make it like a book shape and on and on and they get all carried away.

Classic works- it is easy to follow-you don’t have to move things around. You want to write a story just write on a page like it is word doc and write.

You want to add media well no problem: press the add media or + and there you have it. But with block it is so tedious and mind numbing and super unfriendly- it must have been a bad pizza day when they came up with that block head idea.

Creating a YouTube Channel

Reading although it is good for leisure and thorough immersion and verisimilitude nothing can beat that feeling but today people prefer a visual aspect to knowing and learning.

Having a YouTube Channel is recommended. When learning or any kind of information is presented in video format people pay attention. The key if you are going to present is to be yourself.

Yes you can dress it up with lighting and backgrounds, audio and good camera’s knowing your subject and being passionate in a way that others enjoy and listen: then you will have hooked a following.

Remember it involves commitment and one video will not make any difference you have to be prepared to hand your life over to the virtual world.

The constancy is not for everyone although if you have a subject or image to you want to tell others a hint or advice you can’t go wrong with YouTube.

The New Google Search Console

The Search Console reports in Analytics provide information about the performance of your organic-search traffic.

You can see data like user queries and the number of times your site URLs appear in search results (impressions), along with post-click data about site engagement like bounce rate and ecommerce conversion rate.

This combination of data helps you optimize your site for the most profitable traffic.

So you want your site to take off. Here’s how!

Action=Behaviour right! And with every action there is a reaction. That is the behaviour. Trying to figure out the ‘why’ of this combo keeps statisticians’ busy using various mathematical equations.

 

If you have a full picture you can make deductions based on it. If you are shown half a picture then the mind has to imagine what is happening at the other side.

 

The same goes for Google analytics and statistics.

They input data from a site but if they only have one part of the picture, the analytics side you won’t see the full picture. So you must link analytics and adwords.

Yes the world is based on numbers and statistics. Numbers and statistics

 

won’t account for the outsider or outlier but in metrics that outlier has a place. By linking your Google analytics and adwords accounts you will see the reason behind the numbers and what that outlier does as well.

Google teaches you all about SEO and Adwords

Google AdWords is Search advertising, or pay per click, and is not the same as SEO, or Search Engine Optimisation, where clicks to your website through organic listings are free.

This came as a response on boards.ie.
This link bought me to a site explaining the difference but also to where you have an option to do Googles’ own SEO and Adword online course.
It suggests starting at the beginning.
For anyone who wants to know how to measure what is happening on your site start with the ‘Digital Fundamental Analytics’ and best of all it’s FREE.
What you learn here is how to approach your site in a measured marketing capacity.
Google don’t make it difficult. The guy who gives the course is clear and understandable.

See for yourself

SEO is not McDonalds patience PPC is but it has its advantages it’s immediate.

It really is what you would do if you had a shop on the highstreet. This time it is all done in Google analytics and you can definitely DIY it.
For instance you can filter hits on your site both qualitatively( behaviours and live etc) and quantitatively ( how many,when).
These are the measuring tools used in most analytics the quantity is what is most used, qualitatively can be a subjective and contextual measurement.

You learn by having a dummy site which Google set up for you. Then instead of learning by listening you learn experientially.
If you have a simple site you won’t have to make too many inputs to measure what is happening and what the user is doing.

It really gives a great perspective on how to keep on top of human behaviour as they use your site’s call to action.
There is a brief test after each video, which I didn’t notice as I stuck to the fold view. If you do this test after each vid you’ll get a good handle on what you have learned.
This is SEO. Not Adwords. Oh Yeah on boards.ie thank you.
So far I’m onto module 5 and 5.2
