W3 Total Cache is a popular caching plugin for wordpress powered blogs. I have been using it after I quit using WP Super Cache wordpress plugin. I had been satisfied with its performance ever since. I have also tried CDN with it. Its good. Makes your wordpress blog run faster. Recently TechMynd was landed into adsense blacklist and i was checking few things and this problem caught my eye. Generally whenever you are using a wordpress plugin, you should give importance to its options detail. You better be careful about what plugin you are using and what type of changes it makes on your blog coding and source. If you are not careful enough then W3 Total Cache plugin can get you banned from Google Adsense. Here is how:

I have been using WordPress Audio Player for quite a long time now to enable TechMynd guests to play MP3 audio files from TechMynd. The plugin is great. It displays simple flash audio player which can play audio track or multiple audio tracks by clicking play button. Back some days I noticed the plugin stopped working and displaying a message to upgrade flash version. I had up-to-date flash plugin but the message continued to display instead of songs. I landed on WP Audio Player troubleshooting page and noticed that the developer had mentioned following two important points.

1- Upgrade to the latest flash player which I am sure I have.
2- Use wp_footer and wp_head functions in theme files. I had these functions in my blog.

Still the player did not play the songs.

Stupid idea to try and evolve comments potential rather then content’s potential itself (That’s just I am saying). But then, there are some bloggers / webmasters who might be conscious about every part of their site. They won’t even leave comments at peace. Well! Here is a system which can turn your blog’s comments system into live social streams. Echo is the commenting system for blogs and sites. It’s the way to share your content, and watch the live reaction. You can quickly embed Echo on WordPress, Blogger, or any website and turn your static pages into a real-time stream of diggs, tweets, comments and more. Its not free :)

It takes more or less 5 minutes to get the WordPress software, upload it and get it running at some domain and it takes a year to get your first check from Google AdSense as your earning for what you do at your blog. You have to search interesting topics, interesting apps or cool services related to your area and post it at daily basis. Yes! you have to post daily atleast one new article to get there. Sometimes it takes a full night or a full working day to create a good post. These are my experiences. And it is same for most of the bloggers out there. We are bloggers / publishers. We do not have anything our own (mostly). We inform the world about interesting stuff which other people own. We publish, we write articles and news. You know what? Have you ever thought about it that you are working too hard and yet gaining less. I am going to share with you a smart choice. You can WORK LESS and EARN MORE. Really you do not have to search for news. What if the interesting new / latest articles, news, videos come right in your admin as draft posts and what you have to do is to just hit Blue Publish button from admin to post an article. Get your blog on steroids. With this WordPress plugin, you can post 40 to 50 articles at daily basis (even more), and if you want, you can even do it without lifting a finger and hitting the Big Blue Publish button.
