Move wordpress-pages to posts

Just a quick checklist for me and a warning:

“You should think first when choosing if you create a wordpress-page or a wordpress-post!”

There are some subtle differences between pages and posts. And if you have created a page you cannot simply migrate it to a post.

I have lots of pages on my blog and want to restructure the content a bit. E.g I’d like to assign categories to these “pages” and do some further additions that some plugins only make available for posts.
And in fact – after thinking a bit – these old pages should really be posts.
If it were only a few pages, I could simply create a post, copy&paste the text over from the page, publish the post and delete the page. That’s it.

But … even with 10 pages, there must be a better way.

So let’s begin with a small tutorial. Weiterlesen

WordPress MultiTags Plugin

Are you using tags in your wordpress-blog? If so, you might already have recognized that you get more traffic by choosing the right tags.
And not only Google is looking for those keywords that you “attach” to your post (iThemes.com points out how important tags are from a SEO perspective. And I quite agree).

It is a good thing for the (human) reader as well.
Simply find all posts that have the tag e.g. “jquery” attached to it. That does make sense especially in this blog, where I have a bunch of different subjects no one is interested in (like stories about my “kids“). At least those who came here with “jquery”-interest won’t bother about my “kids”. “jquery”.

Tags are really useful, when it comes to keyword optimization. Simply tag your posts with the relevant keyword and you got your keyword in the tag-url (as in “http://www.vogel-nest.de/blog/tag/kids“) and usually also in the title of that tag-page and all relevant posts are listed there as well.
Very nice. But wait, we’ll come to keyword phrases as well (e.g. “kids humour” or “wordpress jquery”)
