Book Review: WordPress MU 2.8

WordPress MU 2.8Since I haven’t ventured off into the world of WordPress MU yet, I was quite anxious to get my hands on Lesley A. Harrison’s WordPress MU 2.8 (Beginner’s Guide) book.  I have finished reading this book and I would like to share some of my thoughts about the book.

Overview

This isn’t much of an introduction to WordPress MU, but more so a guide on how to build your own blog network, social network, or community using WordPress MU.  There are also chapters with good techniques that can also be used on any other platforms (in other words, non-WordPress-MU-specific tips).

The book walks you step-by-step through how to create a mythical community site called “SlayerCafe”.  During the process, it shows you everything from finding the right host, installing/customizing WordPress MU to driving traffic to your site and monetizing your site.

How to Hack Google Analyticator Plugin to Display Page Views

Page View on Advertise PageIf you haven’t noticed, I have an advertise page on this blog that displays various OMNINOGGIN statistics for any interested advertiser to see. If you visit that page, you will also notice a little section under “View Counts” that displays the number of page views on my blog in the last 30 days. This statistics is tracked in my Google Analytics account and I use a hacked version of the Google Analyticator WordPress plugin to display it.

The reason why hacked the plugin to display the number of page views is because advertisers usually care more about the number of page views than the number of unique visitors.

In this tutorial I will show you how to hack the Google Analyticator plugin to display the number of page views instead of the unique visitors and display the count in any one of your posts or pages.

Turn off Caching in My Buy Sell Ads WordPress plugin!

Comments Off on Turn off Caching in My Buy Sell Ads WordPress plugin!

Here is a note to people who use my Buy Sell Ads WordPress plugin. I recommend that you set cache expiration to 0 to make your statistics register correctly with the Buy Sell Ads network.

This is because Buy Sell Ads network is now also tracking the number of times the ads themselves get requested (not just the tracking pixel). If the ads are cached on your server, then they are not going to count in your Buy Sell Ads statistics whenever it is being displayed (lowering your impression count).

I am working on ripping out the caching mechanism right now, but for the time being, you should just set cache expiration to 0 in the Buy Sell Ads WordPress plugin settings.
