How to do a Ping Back.

 

WordPress has changed a few things on the tech side since I first wrote about doing Ping Backs 2 years ago. I’m also more serious in my approach to my Tip Blog Posts, so here’s an updated take on things.

What does a Ping Back mean?

For our purposes a Ping is when one website speaks to another website.

How does that conversation take place?

You take the URL from one Blog Post and place within the content of the Blog Post of the other website and make sure it is active/live/working.

What ways can you do a Ping Back?

  1. Make the actual URL active within the post.
  2. Place the URL within a word of a sentence of the content of the post.
  3. Place the URL within an Image of the post.

Numbers 1 and 2 are done the same way.

  1. You highlight whatever it is that you want the reader to click on in order to go to the other post.
  2. You then click on the Insert/edit link Icon.
  3. You place the URL within the Paste URL or type to search field of the pop up box.
  4. You then click the blue box with the white arrow within it.
  5. You are done.
  6. Extra-If you want your link to open in new tab click the Gear next to the blue box with the white arrow and check the box that says Open link in new tab then click Add Link. (Why do this? You don’t really want people to leave your site. So if the link opens in a new tab, they still have your site up and you have a good chance of the reader checking out other things on your site.)

For an Image.

You click the image and then repeat steps 2-5 above.

Why do a Ping Back in the first place?

The Ping Back will appear in the comments of the Post of the other site, letting the owner as well as any other readers aware that you have participated or made some type of comment regarding the post. This will encourage Traffic to your blog.

I ask for people to do a Ping Back in the various challenges I host on my blog. Some blogs receive hundreds of extra visits each year because of doing Ping Backs.

There are URLs that won’t send a real Ping Back to the original Blog.

If you were to use the URL of my Blog’s Home Page or the Category Page of one of my challenges, the reader of your post would be able to click the link and visit me, but I would not receive a Ping Back. If you think about it, it makes sense. There isn’t a comments section on a Category Page nor a normal Home Page.

Much Respect

WordPress Post Editor Changes.

“There is nothing permanent except change.” – Heraclitus

With that being said, you may have noticed the changes in your WordPress Post Editor.

Let’s look at the two obvious ones.

First up, Text Color.

Font Color ImageI like it. Now I can see the colors more easily. There were a lot of shades before, which some may have enjoyed. Sure I did too, but now we have the added option of the next thing.

Custom Color

Custom Font Color ImageYou can change the numbers or click in the rainbow like color bar and then use your cursor to move around within the color box to find just the shade you like. We may have fewer shades preset but now we have so much more available to us.

Next up is the one that freaked me out at first. Yes, I got freaked out. Okay, I didn’t but it was weird for a moment.

Link Insert

When you clink on the Link Icon up in the tool bar of the Post Editor, you now get that lovely little URL Box you see at the bottom of the image. When you are inserting a URL link in your post, like you might do with my Haiku Challenge, you highlight the words and click the Link Icon and then click the little left facing right angled arrow next to the URL box, it’s called Apply. You see it above in a blue box with a white arrow. A little round spoke gear looking thing is just to the right of it.

But you might need to insert a URL into a word or into an image. That’s what we look at next.

The Gear Box

Link Gear Box WordPress ImageThis isn’t all that complicated. It’s just an expanded version of what we had before. You get to this by clicking that little spoke like gear next to the Apply arrow I mentioned before. I like this because you get to see a list of recent posts you may want to link to, and it has that nice Search box as well.

Hope this helps someone. If you have any questions, leave them below in the comments, or fill out the comment form.

RonovanWrites #Haiku #Poetry Challenge Review 62

Another week, another challenge, another group of 47 great people making all of this work, and I didn’t go searching for lost and errant poets this time. Both WordPress and Blogger blogs are represented.

I’ve had people recently tell me how much all of you communicate with each other and engage each other. People wonder how “I” created such a great THING here where people show up and participate. I always say I have nothing to do with it except coming up with two words a week and an example. I’m not sure how it’s grown like this, well I do, you guys have done it. Thank you for what you do to make this the success it is.

Okay, enough of the mushy stuff, let’s get on with the awful poetry this week. 😉 Ahhh, sarcasm, it suits me so well.

Haiku Challenge Review Image

Closing Haiku

Torrid dreams begin,

This night of Longed For passion,

Ends with cold shoulders.

Sometimes those Honeymoon nights can be a bummer. 🙂 Not that I PERSONALLY would know that. Nope, not moi.

New to the Challenge this Week

NEW! D.B. Mauldin (Author): Appetites for Consumption | mama bear musings. I sometimes don’t know where I come up with the titles but I just go with it. There are actually two Haiku and they are linked in meaning. “I am a professional and published writer. I write articles, short stories, and I am currently working on my first novel. I have had four short story’s published, in a variety of anthologies, during 2015.” Yes, author. 🙂 Check out the Author link for offerings on Amazon and click HERE for the About page links to other online distribution such as Smashwords.

ReNew! Marcy Erb: To Catch a Criminal | Illustrated Poetry. Yes, I said ‘ReNew’. Why? It’s been sometime since Marcy has had time to join in and I felt a need or a want to reintroduce her. Such a unique and amazing Haiku. One of my MUST READS this week. Her explanation of how it came about is a lesson in itself. My IQ may be quite high but this one made the brain pain a bit. AWESOME! About Marcy? That’s a bit difficult. Super nerd turned poetry nerd? I mean the lady did her About page in poetic form. Don’t believe me? Check it out HERE.



 

First to Arrive

Judy: Make it Hot in Here | Edwina’s Episodes. You know. I wonder about her episodes sometimes. I have them too. When I miss my medications. Well, she sort of SAID she was going in one direction instead of her original intent, but I think she most likely ended up there anyway. It’s Judy. Come on. You just know she has to get a little. well Judy with it. @EdwinasEpisodes



 

Al: Cheap Cookin’ | Al the Author’s Blog. Okay, so the title is mine. I can’t help but think of how I boil eggs when I read this one. But it is very possible Al meant this to be about a relationship. He can like what he wants, and I will like what I want. Don’t judge me! @AlistairLane

Annette Rochelle Aben (Best Selling Author, Radio Show Host): Screamin’ Hot | Annette Rochelle Aben. Um, it’s not what you think, honestly. A theme is going here. Not sure how long it will last but it’s there. Check out Annette’s books at the Author link above and her Radio Show at the Host link. @YouAreTheExpert

Colette: Flagging | The Wishing Well. I have to say I really like how the words were used here. Also some less often used words as well. Cool.

Mira: Make certain to visit all three. start over…| They, You and Me. ooooo. Not sure what else to say but…ooooooooo. embers | To Wear a Rainbow. Bit of a historical piece I envision…outvision…um this one makes me think of. summer affair | They, You and Me. Hmm. Could be people, could be animals, or could be people being animals. I’m not sure. 🙂 @BediMona

Clarence: Lovers Latte | PrairieChat. Yeah, um, Clarence is starting a commotion on his blog this week. And he blamed me for it!

TJ Paris: It’s too darned hot! | La vie est trop courte pour boire du mauvais vin. (Is that a  mouthful of blog name or what?) Oh no! An Aussie picture this week? Has he been hacked? Replaced? Unwell? A piece of cod? The Shell you Say! Yeah, I have lost it early this week. Clarence made me do it. Sorry TJ. @Roccoco_a_GoGo

Kat: Venom | Like Mercury Colliding. My son “B” would be proud she got this one right. He’s been correcting people since he was 4 about venom and poison and what is what. If the name isn’t a trigger warning for some of you, well I…good luck. 🙂

Alice: Hot starts | Boomerang Zone. 5 syllables in one word? Awesomelynessness. No that wasn’t the word. And no, again, not want some of you are thinking it’s about. I am impressed with the thinkings this week. @Vidocq_CC

Olga: Toasted! | Stuff and what if …. Where do I come up with these titles? From the Haiku of course. You’ll get it and then want it!!!

Shailzaa: The Change? | Fewunsaidwords. Hmm. I think this one might need to be investigated. o,O

Greg: Storms Coming: Potholes in The Road of Life. Know the feeling here. Sometimes it gets a touch hotter right before. @greg_wolford

Ritu: Autumn Desire | But I Smile Anyway… That’s two Haiku, just so you know. Holy Hannah and her sisters. I need to turn the air on in here. I think one name would have actually fit both. O,O @PhantomGiggler

Amy: Seasoned Changes | Haiku of a Homeschooler. Three this week and all fall into the category of that title, or at least could when one puts ones mind to it. And this one put his half to it. @me_the_seeker

Janice: Hot Summer Ni…urrr, Autumn…What is it anyway?!?! | Ontheland. Yeah, the title actually fits better than you might think. Those of us here in the North American region might all be wondering about this. @ontheland1

Claudette: Life Cycle of an Arguement | to search and to find. Very nice. And very true. I know of people in this right now and it does not end well.

Sandra: Yellow | Wild Daffodil. She’s a combiner and this week I don’t just mean all the challenges she puts into one. She makes an Empty promise for next week. Muahahahaha.

Jane Dougherty (Author): Life of a Flower | Jane Dougherty Writes. Jane says her three Haiku don’t have a common thing, but I say they do, if you want them to. That third one is the one you have to think about using imagery and metaphors. I think the title works. Check out Jane’s books on Amazon at the Author link above. @MJDougherty33

Meredith & Martha: Preparation & Nuisance as well as Hot Tamales & Create | Meredith’s Musings. Entertaining, humorous and very nice to look at Haiku this week. Martha went a little on the humor side with one and Meredith sort of went with the home feel to hers. Very nice. @Meredithlbl

Melissa Barker-Simpson (Author): Helios Power | M Barker-Simpson. Mel read my mind. As I was preparing my previous weeks Haiku I was wanting to use the Heliotrope because of its color but could not fight through the migraines to make it quite the way I wanted it. Now here we are. Awesome. Click the Author link above to visit her on Amazon.

Shida: Blaze Up The Fire | 876LoveR. And of course off I go for YouTube adventuring. Like Protoje’s voice, natural. But with and Chronixx…well, who knows, right? @realrebel_r

Nato: Heated Journey | Chasing Life and Finding Dreams. 7 Haiku in a story. It’s not quite what you think it might be. Very nice too. If you have not read this one…Fool You Must Be!!! If I were still picking Ronovan’s Choices….  @MichelleLunato

Jen (JK): Energy Surge & Pinged Off | the secret keeper. Mindfulness with a Hot Pocket? Wow. The places we go with two words. @occultguardian

Elusive Trope or ET for short?: Upon the Anvil | Elusive Trope. Perhaps I should not have made the ET reference? Hadn’t seen the title of the Haiku before I said that. Oh boy, now to see what ET put upon the anvil. My head perhaps? Hmm, I think I am safe. Or so I am interpreting it as my being safe. Gotta love readers prerogative. 🙂 Wow, reading the comments and the big words used, I feel sooo inadequate now. 😀 (No idea why the use of all the smileys.)

Sue Vincent (Author): Anticipation | Daily Echo. Oh she is going to hate it, but AWESOME! She knows what happens when she includes her lovely other half, Ani. Muahahaha. Click the Author link for Sue at Amazon and her many books. @SCVincent

Melissa?: Preparation | The Aran Artisan. This person seems somewhat familiar. Hmmm. 😛 About time she got herself back here. Just read a book she MUST READ. Mentions hats common in Aran, also set in Galway. An American woman who goes to Ireland and falls for an Irishman. I instantly thought of our Aran Island Girl except it happened in reversed and he kidnapped her back to his homeland. Great pictures as usual, and a look into what it takes to live the life she does. So happy she is back here…home.

Elizabeth: Magical Day | Tea & Paper. I read this one earlier in the week but just now realized the opposites in both it and the photo. Very cool. @teandpaper

Pat B.: Hot Walker | A season and a time. Um again, one of those titles I come up with that make you go hmmm. Did you know that Pat’s blog is on Blogger? That’s right, this isn’t just a WordPress community. 🙂

R. Todd: At the Green… | A Flash of Fiction. Blown could be a good title as well. Great photo for this one. 🙂

Maylian: Hot summer night | personalselfperfection. An interesting Haiku that the title didn’t give away the meaning. You have to read it or you will make the wrong assumption. The image and Haiku obviously go together.

Marje: Hot Rave Drug Murder and Tsunami of Tears | Kyrosmagica.  These are not our usually humor Haiku from Marje this week. So I gave her a hard time this week and almost stumped her? And I wasn’t even trying. I’ve thought about seeing if I could come up with difficult words, but then I would have to use them as well…at least twice. @Marjorie_Mallon

Ruby: Blush of flames | Whispering Thoughts. Two meanings in one. Or one throughout. You decide. Nature or man? It’s up to you. Well done.

Vashti Quiroz-Vega (Author):  Night Terrors | The Writer Next Door. One word and this would have a totally different meaning. Check out Vashti on Amazon at the Author link above and you can see her interview by clicking HERE. @VashtiQV

Colleen: Day Break | Silver Threading. She used the word cherry in a most unique way. Awesome! You know, as Colleen makes a location change I can’t help feel a little sad because of her inspiration for her book was found where she is leaving from. But perhaps she will find some of their cousins where she ends up. @SilverThreading

denis1950: Hot Start | Haiku Hound. 3 Haiku in the 3/5/3 style. You may see this around quite often in the challenge. The 3/5/3 makes it even more challenging. Try it if you like. So a Serious, a Nature, and a Humor. 🙂 I think the nature one qualifies as Humor as well. Hate to say it but it reminds me of ladies at a hair salon. 🙂 Not sure why. I know I will pay for that one when some read this. Great images, the first is a wow, the third is very cool, and the middle is the hair salon.

Carol: September | Mama Cormier. I would almost title this False Impressions if I were Carol. 🙂 But I feel this one. Getting the same thing here. @Carol_Cormier

vronlacroix: Hot air balloon | Simply Snapshots. I really like this one. The image, the Haiku, the word used in place of start, it all works so well. Original in idea. Very nice.

Steven: Shifts | Ramblings of a Drabbling Mind. Can you count how many Haiku are in this one? He gives you a way to see it. 🙂

Becky G: Becky G? Oh, That’s Me! I love the contrast here in the image. And we have a Nature Haiku.

E. Rawls (Author): Race Track/To Win | Rawls E. Fantasy. I like that second one a lot. Check out Bleeding Hearts, a collection of short stories, poems, and riddles, at Elizabeth’s Author page on Amazon by clicking the Author link above.  @VChronicles_

stu06bloc9: Startling | Pitter Patter Poetry. HA! You so think stu went a weird route with the prompt word then suckers you in at the end. Muahahahaha! Classic.

Juliette: Seasons Change | Battered Wife seeking Better Life. Her description of her Haiku is accurate. Straight to the point. Perhaps she is losing her inner being touch? Poor thing. Lost her gift of gab. 😛 @BWseeingBL

Florence: Sign | Meanings and Musings. Wonder if she is trying to say something here? @FTThum

Ronovan: Heat | Ronovan Writes. In addition to the two Opening Haiku and the closing I actually did a separate post for another. The image could be misleading, take the meaning of the words as you like. @RonovanWrites

Plan for Success!

Did you read my 10 Tips to Make Blogging Enjoyable. Traps to Avoid? If not, it’s still there…waiting. Why do I mention it, other than hoping those of you that missed it go and read it? There is actually an 11th Tip. Unfortunately I didn’t think of it in the 11th hour, I thought of it after that. But that just means I get to write another Blogging Tip article.

Plan, Organize, Organize, oh and Organize!

We think we organize, but we don’t. We have some categories we click the little box next to for each post but we begin to write things and come up with random categories. Before we know it we have countless categories or we have posts in an existing handful that don’t make sense.

Organizing from the very beginning of blogging makes for a lot of great benefits.

  • Easier Reader Navigation
  • Better Reader Enjoyment
  • Easier SEO Results
  • Less Headache and Mess for You, The Blogger

This isn’t my first go around with an article about organization. My 3 Best Blogging Tips for a Successful Blog  was one year ago discussing menu structures, how to do drop down menus and create real PAGES and fake ‘pages’ as headings for drop down menu sections. Yep, step-by-step.

Now, if you’re new, the Category is basically like a folder you place a post in and you can then actually make a page in your menu using that category. You can look at my menu around my header image to see what I am talking about.

Mine looks simple, right? In reality, mine is a mess. I have over 1300 articles now, posts, poems, tips, videos, and whatever other random things I’ve come up with. I tell you that so you know when I talk about a need to organize I know from experience.

The problem? The mess?

I realized too late my system for organizing was not adequate. Why? There was no system. For someone who spent years organizing and mapping out things for Plan Your Blog for Successlocations around the country, I can’t stand the condition things are in. But the process of correcting all the mess is overwhelming. I’ll do it, slowly, but slowly is the key word.

If you are a veteran blogger, take a handful of minutes a day and do a page of your content in the Dashboard each day. No more than that. If you do more, you get tired of it, disgusted, and it becomes work. Blogging should be an enjoyable part of our lives, even if we do it as a job.

Now, I have great articles, and I’m not tying to be all boastful. People have truly enjoyed some of my work, but people can’t find those articles. I can’t sometimes unless I go into my Dashboard. (Sorry, Dashboard is blog-speak for where all of our tools and useful things are.)

So organization leads to easy Reader Site Navigation.

To organize your content you need to:

  • Look at what the post you’re doing is at its general level. Is it a Tip, a Writing Piece, Music. What is it? Now you have your Headings/Page Names.
  • What is the post specifically about? Is it a Love Poem, a SciFi story, or a Blogging Tip? Now you have your Categories.
  • Now, for Tags, you go into all the wide and varied things people might think of when looking at the post; Poem, Romance, Desire, Paris, Ocean. I only mention Tags because we are talking about naming of things. This has nothing to do with organization so much, but does in a way when people do a search of a word or you use a Tag Cloud. (For WordPress, don’t use more than 13 Tags or your post might not show up in the WordPress Reader.)

There are countless tips out there about how to organize and boost traffic by managing your content. Not long ago I met Janice Wald of MostlyBlogging.com. The topic of blogging seems to be something she is passionate about and seeks out things to know. As I wrote the article I thought it would be great to ask her for some articles she thought might be of use about the subject of blog organization. Here are some related articles from her site you MUST READ:

The first thing you need to read is; How to Build the Perfect Blog Even if You Don’t Know How This will give you a basic checklist to go through to make sure you have prepared a post worth posting and being read. What you post is your reputation, image, brand. You want to get it right from the beginning. Some readers will never come back if you are bad from the beginning.

Perhaps you are wanting to know if you are doing things right. You think you are but how do you find out? Well, teacher Janice has a report card for you to go by. How to Grade Your Blog  (By the way, I got an A.)

What is another form of organization? How do you know for sure you are doing a good job of it? The report card above won’t tell you if you are getting the results from your efforts. And really there are some less technical aspects that you need to look at. How to Get Loyal Visitors to Repeatedly Return to Your Blog Here you will find a real success  story from a real success blogger.

Now, one final thing from Janice I like is, How to Increase Blog Traffic with Content Curation. It’s not about organizing but how to get more out of those old posts you wrote that no one sees these days. No amount of organization will get all of your work seen. But if you know how to spread that content around, you can get results, maybe even better ones at times.

But not all success of a blog has to do with organization or spreading the word. I for one can vouch for that on some level. Sometimes a blog achieves success not by organization but by personality. My friend Hugh Roberts of Hugh’s Views & News focuses more on the personality and feel of blogging, a blog, and the blog life to be successful. Yes he does the organization but he likes to provide tips on a personal level. One popular article to check out  is, Is Your Blog As Friendly As You Think It Is? It is one of his most recent but high on his most popular post list.

From me you can check my Most Popular list at the bottom of the blog, currently. There are two that seem to get attention the most over time, How to Survive the Blog Life. and Blogging Personality: The Key to Success.

BONUS TIP!

While I was writing the above and reading old articles of mine another tip came to mind.

Leave Your Post to Marinate

We write a post and want it out NOW. Big problem with that is the ugly word TYPO. Nothing worse than doing a Writing Tip article and you have typos everywhere.

Let your article sit a few days, a week or more if you can. Then you come back and read it and you see the problems, and read it in the Preview window, like it would be on your blog, NOT in the Post Editor. Post Editor windows allow for easy skipping over words and even sentences. Our eyes are more accustomed to truly reading something on a Blog page as opposed to the Editor page.

(All images created by Ronovan unless otherwise noted.)

REBLOG, TWEET, FB it, or GOOGLE+ it. Share it however you like so all those linked get clicked.

Much Respect-Much Love

Ronovan

How to Combine/Merge Blogs/Move Articles from Blog to Blog or Backup Blog Files.

Have you ever had more than one blog and then decided you just wanted one? Or have you ever maybe been part of one site and wanted to move something you wrote over to your own personal site? Wish you could combine those blogs into one or move that article over? Maybe you simply want to backup your blog content?

Just to let you know, if any links appear in this article and you click them, they will appear in this window, not a new tab or new window. You will need to click the back arrow to return to this page.

How to Combine or Merge Blogs or move your Articles from one Blog to another.

It’s easier than you think. It looks like a lot of information, but I’m just detailed in my information providing. It is really is easy.

Remember what you move is still on the old blog. You would need to actually delete it from the other site if you wanted to.

First we’re going to Export whatever it is you want to Export.

Step One.

  • Go to the Dashboard of the Blog you are doing away.
  • Go to Tools.
  • Select Export.

In WordPress.com you will see two options you can select.

  • Export-This will create an xml file and it’s Free to do.
  • Guided Transfer-This is for where someone working for WordPress will transfer your Blog content for you to a WordPress.org site for a price.

I of course will be explain the Free way.

Step Two.

  • Click Export.
  • At this point you get to choose what you want to Export.
    • All content.
    • Posts
    • Pages
    • Feedback
  • Choosing All content is self explanatory.
  • Posts you have the following options.
    • Categories-You are able to choose a category to Export. A good idea if you have a lot and want to try it out at first.
    • Authors-That’s right. Choose just one Author to Export their work.
    • Date Range-It’s a Month and Year to Month and Year range.
    • Status-This things such as Published, Scheduled, Drafts, Pending.
  • Pages you will have the following options.
    • Authors-Export just those pages by author
    • Date Range-Again by Month and Year.
    • Status-Just like with Posts. Posts

Step Three.

  • You’ve selected what you want to do.
  • Click Download Export File.
  • A pop up box will open.
  • Make sure the Save File is selected and then click OK.

The File will go to your Download folder on your computer.

Now to Import the File to the other Blog.

 Step One.

  • Go to the Dashboard of the Blog you are doing away.
  • Go to Tools.
  • Select Import-Man, are you going to be surprised at the possibilities.
    • You can actually Import from Blogger, Tumblr, and others. (See details for Blogger at the bottom of this page.)
    • But we’re going to select WordPress.

Step Two.

  • Click WordPress.
  • You will be prompted to Browse for the file that was Exported.
  • Find it and select it.
  • Click Upload file and import.
  • Then you will be prompted to select the Author for the Imported items. If that person doesn’t exist, then assign to another Author.
  • Then click Submit.
  • You will then receive a message on the screen that says you will receive an email with the Import is successful. The Email takes a while at times. I tested it and the Import I did was in the new Blog several minutes before the Email came.
  • When the system and WordPress are done the email will say Import Successful in the Subject. And it will be from WordPress.com. I know that last part sounds like a big of course moment but that’s the detail I give and you would be surprised at how many people might ask if I didn’t tell.

You will want to make sure things are as you like them with your tags and things like that. The content will still be in the other Blog but you can do with it what you like at this point.

You can also download Blogger files and then load them to WordPress but you will need to do some changing once the files are loaded. But you still have everything you need. What do you have to do?

  • Go to your Dashboard on your Blogger.com site or the Design page if you like to use the name you click on to get there.
  • Click on Settings.
  • Click on Other.
  • Then near the top middle of the page you will see three options in blue text. Import Blog, Export Blog, Delete Blog.
  • Click Export Blog.
  • Click Download Blog when the window pops up.
  • Then select Save File ad OK.
  • To Import to WordPress, you do just like Importing from a WordPress Blog.

Hope all of this helps. If you have anything you would like me to write a How To for, go to my About page and fill out the form. I’m always looking for new ways of helping.

Please ReBlog and share if you like. I know some people don’t like that but I am like, um, does it mean people read what I wrote?
