For my wordpress blog (hosted at wordpress.com / business plan /  my domain ),  I create custom ads which are basically  a .JPG image linked to the advertiser.
 
These are not Google Adsense or jetpack ads.  

What's the most popular /well-supported plugin/solution for me to create an ad (picture w/ link) , have them automatically interspersed between posts, and permit me to specifically place them in certain locations on the left & right?

I don't know if Wordpress.com as a hosting company has any restrictions.

The guy who ported my site to wordpress.com wrote a custom plugin but I don't want to be tied to this guy forever.

Thanks for any suggestions,
Mike

IT Pros Agree: AI and Machine Learning Key

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

In March last year due to Yoast Media Bug (which caused images being indexed as a page with nothing but one image without any additional text) the traffic on my website dropped 80%!
- https://yoast.com/media-attachment-urls/

The cause of this traffic loss was identified in the end of December last year which makes almost 10 months of low traffic and thousands of indexed pages (URLs which should never be indexed) instead of hundreds (real number).

Another problem was the "forgotten" phpBB board installed on the same domain which started to have a lot of spam posts which probably contributed to additional traffic loss later in the summer.

All this made a lot of first page search result URLs virtually non-existent - they do not appear up to 5th or 10th search result pages.

Now, everything is fixed (phpBB uninstalled, sitemap has only hundreds of high quality URLs, and the unwanted URLs respond with 410 and 404 error codes) but the traffic is the same low for 3 weeks after fix already.

How long do you think it will take to recover?

And is there anything more I could do?

I have a Wordpress webiste with Pay Per View plugin (https://wpmupremium.com/wordpress/pay-per-view-plugin/) which shows 500 words for non-subscribers for free.

However, I want Google to index the whole blog post not just those 500 words.

Google recommends using the JSON/Scheme for that purpose in order to avoid the cloaking penalty.

Would you be able to help me - write and explain the implementation of that code to my Wordpress blog?

Here are the recommendations from Google - https://developers.google.com/search/docs/data-types/paywalled-content

Suddenly and without a reason some of my Windows 7 machines are having issues with IE and Google Chrome.  Suddenly they can't resolve internal websites.  There have been no changes made on the domain.  And strangely everything pings just fine. Trace route works fine too.  It's like a slow progression of PC's.  So far windows 10 isn't having this issue.  Has anyone heard of this?

We are looking to develop landing  pages like: https://www.paykobo.com/connected, however, have problems getting it to show on google. We have written that page almost 5years ago.

We understand, we might need to now: chooses relevant keywords and proper analysis. But don't know how to go about it. Kindly recommend training videos, or professional support to be able to do this. so that our team of content writers will be able to learn and adapt it as a necessary skill

I'm not a robot
reCAPTCHA Version 3 was released in 2018, and it works differently to the "I'm not a robot" checkbox in reCAPTCHA version 2. With v3, there's no robot checkbox, but an annoying badge is displayed in the lower right corner of your entire website. Every page. This article tells how you can remove it.

Hi

Does anyone know of a product or a method that will allow us to push out company phone contacts to Android devices one way?

We are currently using Google contacts through one Google mail account for about 130 devices and have a regular issue where one of the users will delete a number. This of course syncs back and affects all users.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Not sure why Google ads are not appearin on https://www.gopherstateevents.com/results/cc_rslts/cc_rslts.asp?meet_id=522&show_indiv=n&hide_team=n&hide_ind=n&sport=Nordic%20Ski

Actually, I think it may be because I have no html in the body but I can't see from Google's AdSense page what to place where.  Any help would be much appreciated.  Is there a delay before they show up?  I just added this code back in today after having removed it for some time.

I need to migrate a client from Dropbox to Google Drive and am looking for a utility to do a cloud to cloud sync. I've looked at a dozen or so apps that do what I'm looking for, but choosing one seems like a crapshoot. They all seem to have some type of limitation, either low data caps, bandwidth throttling, lack of technical support. I'm hoping someone can recommend an app or service you've actually used or have confidence in. It doesn't have to be free.

This is to move approximately 700 GB of data and would be a one-time sync. Dependability, speed, trustworthiness, and support are the key things I'm looking for. Any suggestions are appreciated.

Search engines have changed the display of a domain name in search results by adding random capitalization.  

For example, what once was listed as

aircraft.com

now many, but not all, listings have been changed to

AirCraft.com

with the "A" and the "C" capitalized in search results. (Just an example.  Not actual site)

So, a page that might have shown in search results as:

The 747 Seat Tray - aircraft.com
https://www.aircraft.com/?view=wide&db=11 Translate this page View Similar Sites
The seat tray was first introduced in the late 1960s in a precursor to the 747 the 727

No changes have been made to the <title> or <description> tags in the pages.  Site has been online for a long time.  Only recent changes was to upgrade some coding, add wider https.  But, nothing substantive.

Interestingly, it is always shows this after the dash.  So that the pages' <title> correctly display, but the site url appended to the title with a dash now shows this modified capitalization.

I am needing to find out what css or script needs to be excluded from the deferral tag.  If you go to this page - https://www.theherbsplace.com/product/artemisia_combination_p_163/ you will see under the herb bottle a blank thumbnail.  That is what should be showing the label of the product.  But it seems when I lazy load images to improve my pagespeed score that the label image isn't displayed anymore.

I have looked on Google console, but to no avail, so please tell me the steps to identify the script or css that needs to be excluded.

Thanks,

Does following a podcast normally require you to create a new podcast?

I host my podcast at PodBean, and generally feel like I made a good decision. I assume after I get some traffic, I could consider hosting on my WordPress site...we'll see.

For now, I have given my Podbean URL on a business card to over a hundred people who were really interested in following me. But, according to Podbean, none has shown up as a follower.

The thing abut Podbean, to follow a podcast, you need to create your own podcast. And I fear this is scaring away so many people that otherwise would follow my podcast.

What do you know about hosting my podcast differently so that to follow, you simply click follow. This lack of engagement may be seriously killing my podcast. I mean people tat were really engaged, who got scared away when they were forced to create a podcast.

I distribute on iTunes, Google Play, Youtube, and soon other sites as well.

Have you ever heard of this? I wold consider switching, simply over this requirement. I am stunned that no one has followed my podcast, considering I have given my business card to over a hundred people who saw my presentation and were amazed.

Thoughts?

Thanks

Hello, im having some issues with a tablet running android version 5.0.2 which in the past has worked perfectly, and im also seeing messages pop up like google play services has stopped working which may tie in with the issues im seeing?

On apps like ebay all seems to work fine, but when you try to 'read more' or look at item details, the screen shows a spinning circle (i guess androids 'egg timer') and it gets stuck there with no information on the screen ever appearing.  The same kind of thing happens in yahoo finance app when you say try looking at a price graph it also gets stuck, displays text figures but the graph area you see the spinning circle again and it never gets any further.

Sometimes ive seen ebay has stopped working messages, but less often.

Any ideas on how to fix this, does android have any kind of tech support? just curious !
