Creating landing sites - very SEO related (9 posts)

    I have created a little guide, and through that a little plugin, to help you give your visitors what they want to see.

    First, try to go to this url: http://theundersigned.net/2006/05/webdesign-mockup-using-photoshop/

    Now the same thing, but through google. Go to this URL and click the link to the article: http://www.google.com/search?client=safari&rls=da-dk&q=photoshop+mockup&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8

    You see the difference? Search terms from google is grabbed, and related posts in your system is presented right away. It works with google, msn, yahoo and a long list of other search engines.

    Read about it and download it here: http://theundersigned.net/2006/06/wordpress-creating-landing-sites/

    That's wild! Big step up over the ordinary "Search Hi-lite" plugin(s). I am going to try this when I get a chance. I guess you can use whatever CSS you want to show the Search box? (EDIT: yes I see how I can do that). Thanks for this.

    I guess I should display the output on all my major templates that are indexed in Google, namely my homepage, single posts, categories, and monthly archives. Or put it in the Header?

    I have placed it in my header :)

    Yes it should help letting people stay at your blog, and show people what you have to offer related to their original search.

    The plugin is a result of some of my blog accessibility thoughts. Other WordPress SEO tips can be read here

    "Search terms from google is grabbed, and related posts in your system is presented right away."

    Err ... No they're not. The page content is identical for me. What am I meant to see by going via the Google link?

    Thanks to Silkjaer for this excellent landing site plugin.

    I'm not a coder and I am having difficulty inserting the code in the right place. I tried index.php and header.php but each time I try it, my site just shows a blank screen. <<< White Screen Syndrome (WSS) :-) >>>

    It is very likely that I am pasting the code into the wrong section of the xxx.php file because I don't know what I am doing! I am using WP 2.x, theme Lite1.0 and I have removed the comments surrounding ls_install. The plugin is activated OK. My test site is in a subfolder and works fine otherwise

    Where exactly does this code go in order to display the related articles list under my header and before the first post?

    Thank you.

    <?php if (ls_getinfo(‘isref’)) { ?>
    <h2><?php ls_getinfo(‘terms’); ?></h2>
    You came here from <?php ls_getinfo(‘referrer’); ?> searching for <i><?php ls_getinfo(‘terms’); ?></i>. These posts might be of interest:

      <?php ls_related(5, 10, ‘
    • ’, ‘
    • ’, ‘’, ‘’, false, false); ?>

    <?php } ?>

    OK, I got past that part using Alex's code posted here on Aug 12 http://theundersigned.net/2006/06/landing-sites-11/

    It advises using old-fashioned apostrophes rather than "fancy" quote marks.

    Now it works on my site but displays question marks between the post listings. Also I do not understand why the LI tags do not work.

    More importantly is: how to get rid of the question mark separators between the lists of posts.

    To see the question marks effect I described,

    - Using http://search.msn.co.uk

    - Search on: cottage smallholder figs

    - At or near the top of page 1 you shoud see results for http://www.cottagesmallholder.com

    - The target page should have the Landing Site entries underneath the header.
