E-commerce industry has grown like a raging fire in the jungle and has spread all over the world conquering the majority of the purchasing options that people have these days. In past few years, physical shopping has vanished from the market and e-com has taken its place as for why anybody will bother to go out in hot summers or chilling winters or rawness monsoon for if that matters. Everybody wants to stay in their comfort zone, clicking two clicks here and there and you are done.
Lookin at what stats has to say in the last couple of years, it is not tough to say that e-com industry will continue to grow at the same pace or maybe more since now everyone now prefers online shopping over the physical shopping.
As a developer, you know that if a site has to be popular and wanted to be in the mainstream, it has to adapt new changes as fast as possible. But surveying market, knowing what people are liking most and how to promote your business is not what a developer do for a living.
So, we will break down the ecommerce trends for wordpress in the following blog post, so that anyone and everyone who are trying to make an e-com site will have the knowledge to built a better online store.
According to research conducted by BigCommerce, 80% of people in the U.S. make purchases online at least once a month. While the majority of people shop on large marketplace websites like Amazon, roughly 30 to 40% also make purchases from web stores, independent boutiques, and category-specific e-retailers.
Nobody can deny the fact that nowadays, online shoppers are spending more time researching about best online deals, coupons, brands and much more. Now, this is your duty to help your clients making more business out of their site by optimizing their site accordingly.
Start by looking at the major marketplace websites. When they establish a groundbreaking new way to accomplish something, that’s usually a good tip-off that you’re looking at an e-commerce trend in the making.
And as we know, or many of you have guessed it until now, WordPress gave us the leisure to study what our visitors looking for/searching/need desperately and then adding all into your website. So, let’s take a glimpse of how ecommerce trends for WordPress are going to workout in 2017.
Everybody knows the value of a mobile responsive website as it allows you to increase your reach since Google, Bing, Yahoo, and all other major search engines prefer a responsive website to be served in front of their users for any niche query. So, making a mobile responsive website is a must or you can directly go for WordPress mobile responsive themes, which can save you from the hassle.
Mobile-first implies that your strategy primarily revolves around the experience of mobile users. Even if your site’s statistics tell you that more purchases are made via desktop computers or in-store, don’t be fooled. Mobile plays a big role in search and, eventually, conversions. As more online retailers become savvy to the roadblocks keeping mobile visitors from converting, we’ll see that role expand even further.
“Conversational commerce” is a phrase that’s recently entered the business lexicon and it’s one that marketers and business owners need to pay closer attention to.
While mobile push notifications are not a new concept, what with everyone from the local froyo shop to your physician sending them, it’s only a matter of time before this catches on for websites. This is especially important for e-commerce companies that benefit from sending key milestone notifications to their customers. Notifications for:
As of right now, these messages are mainly sent from websites to visitors’ emails. WordPress plugins and third-party CRMs have already done a good job of automating this. But, in 2017, conversational commerce is expected to expand into text messaging as well.
Ecommerce companies are surely in the business of selling merchandise online but the products they are promoting have other competitors in the market.
According to crowdtap, people trust user-generated content 50% more than any other kind of media. So, if your client wants to draw traffic away from the competition, content creation may be one way to get a leg up on them.
If you develop websites for e-retailers looking to expand their business this year, this is an especially important point to be aware of. Sure, you can optimize their product pages for search, but it’s just as important to equip WordPress with tools that will enable them to create content.
The use of social media to promote business whether it is e-com or any other type of business can’t be ignored or can’t be taken lightly. While marketers will tell businesses to keep their eyes on social and to build a presence within those channels, it’s the developer’s duty to bolster those efforts using WordPress.
Think of your client’s e-com site like a well-planned city blueprint. All roads are running parallel or perpendicular to each other. When any of the roads is cut or blocked, we need to create a pathway to divert traffic from that road to a running road. WordPress website should work the same as it has proper link buttons, social buttons or like or comment tabs but those should be clear to user.
Customers are now shifting their gears and take time to generate that trust factors over the company or retailer. According to one study, “55% of consumers trust customer photos more than brand-created photos”. Other studies have noted consumers’ growing reliance on online reviews and customer ratings to tell them whether or not to trust a brand or their product.
Then how can e-commerce companies can take benefit from this? It is not sufficient enough to claim that ” we have the best product in the market “. Now, customers want trust builders that they can see through their own eyes.
Last few couple of years have seen a lot of change as far as technology is concerned and that change has evolved in the form of smartphones, apps or cloud based technologies that made our lives much easier. While it would be more easier to blame millennials who needs everything in a convenient way, it would be more right to say that they are the first generation to have all the available tools to make it a reality.
Previously, it was sufficient for a user if a site was loading quickly and popping all the results faster but to make it more convenient, nowadays user is looking for more of the options such as faster checkout, easy payment options, quicker shipping and much more. Well that was beyond our imagination few years back but now if you have to win, this is the trick.
In all honesty, all of that stuff you do to optimize a website’s performance is non-negotiable at this point. Visitors already expect that. What they want now is for you to make their shopping experience faster/easier/cheaper for them.
As we were discussing in the previous point that technology has advance so much that there’s no secret behind why we are seeing an ad on Facebook or some other social media platform for something that we just saw on Amazon or just viewed on Flipkart. You are not the only one who knows the secret ingredient behind how these stats are being recorded. Your user understands this very well, too, and it’s this understanding that’s led them to expect something in exchange for giving you access to that data.
This is why personalization is an expectation now—and it’s one that e-commerce companies, in particular, have a duty to fulfill.
Finishing off, I would like to add up that e-commerce trends coming to the forefront of our discussions this year. In the past years, the actual focus was to make your site ” responsive ” in design or using ” high-resolution image sliders “. But now it is quite clear for web developers that apart from making a site they will have another task and that is to build the site in a better way.

Being a businessman, you know the importance of email marketing. The weight it carries, as far as driving traffic to your site or marketing your business is concerned, is enormous and heavy and that is the reason why it is must to do.
But how to measure your email marketing performance is a big question here, as we know so many tools that can help us in email marketing but the measuring part is still somewhere in the dark. Let’s unravel the hidden secrets of how to measure your email marketing performance.
Reading, analyzing and taking insights from any of your email marketing campaigns can be troublesome and sometimes even painful because you are surrounded by a lot of numbers and aren’t sure of what the actually mean and that’s the biggest reason why sometimes small-medium business owners struggle a lot with the measuring part.
Reviewing your email marketing campaign is necessary as it explains opportunities to improve the impact of your email messages, boost more value to your customers and prospects, and finally building an interactive fan base.
Let us talk about the six metrics to be considered to measure your email marketing performance,
Sales are the top most priority for any size company and to see how much revenue your emails are successfully generating, you must track the sales that resulted from each individual email. Once you have current stats, it would be a lot easier for you to target right set of people with the right set of content and products.
How to increase Sales figure?
Review your emails that are attracting higher-than-average revenue and those that have been total flops. What are you saying in the successful email that’s missing in the one that is not performing well? You may be inconsistently focusing on a need your subscribers have or are failing to generate their interest in the products or services you’re selling. Remember, your emails should focus on bringing value to your audience.
If you are up and running a business from last few years, you must be well aware of the term ” Abandoned Basket “. These are the people who were on the verge of purchasing your product but somehow changed their mind and left the basket unpurchased. You should have a well designed abandoned basket email ready for these set of people and present them the same product in some different manner since sometimes presenting things differently can do the trick.
You can provide them a special coupon or some extra services to encourage them to purchase your product or service.
Still not sure why your emails are performing poorly? Consider conducting a simple split test on different variations (such as a different headline, call to action, design layout, etc.) of an email to help you identify your subscribers’ preferences.
Click reports highlight those live links which are being clicked the most by your client base and which has not left it’s impression on the user and underperformed in your email campaign. To measure your email marketing performance, make sure you are keeping an eye on them.
How to increase click through rates?
If you notice a link isn’t attracting a lot of attention, consider changing the way you present the information (such as adding more enticing visuals) or removing it from future emails. Frequently including links that aren’t valuable to your audience may hurt their perception of your brand.
If a link attracts a significantly higher number of clicks than others, continue featuring relevant content and links in upcoming emails. Find a new way to include it again, or share related products or news.
If you have a specific set of subscribers who shows very strong interest in a unique content type, send them more relevant and niche surveyed data as per their interest block.
This report tells you how many people opened your email and when they opened it. Your open rates can reveal various insights, such as the strength of your subject lines and the best times to send an email to your subscribers.
How to even higher open rates?
Be clear about the content and benefits subscribers will get from your emails (e.g. helpful tips, industry news, coupons) and deliver on that promise. If they signed up for one of those reasons, they’ll be more likely to open your emails to get what they want.
They always say the first impression is the last. As far as emailing somebody is considered, this fact is true because a majority of people decide whether to open the email or not depending upon the subject line of the email. You have around 35 characters to leave a lasting impression – use this space carefully and be clear about what the email contains.
Discovering someone unsubscribed from your email list can be disheartening. But it’s a great opportunity to explore the reasons why they left and what you can do to bring them back or prevent others from leaving too.
If your emails are leaving you with lot of unsubscribers, make sure to
Redirect those who want to unsubscribe from your emails to a unique landing page that asks them why they’re leaving. Consider using their feedback to help shape and improve future emails.
Make sure you’re setting your emails up for success and taking care of the basics. This includes using confirmed opt-in (people are less likely to unsubscribe to an email if they take the extra step to confirm their subscription) and setting accurate expectations as to what subscribers will receive in your emails.
To lessen the impact an unsubscribed subscriber leaves, be sure to remain proactive in collecting new email sign-ups each month. This will also help you grow your list over time.
To acquire a sale, you have to direct your consumers on the specific set of pages as per their need. Traffic reports reveal how many subscribers are going to your website.
As yourself some questions,
When you initiate sending regular emails to your subscribers, make sure you have content and designs ready in advance to shoot, as inconsistent emails can cause subscribers to forget about why they have signed up to your list or which brand are you.
Call to Action buttons plays a major role in diverting your traffic to the correct place. A hidden call to action will be of no use since no one really knows where it is and where will it redirect. Whether your user is being redirected to your homepage or some blog post, make sure there is always a logical next step your audience can take.
Make sure to sprinkle relevant links that link back to your site in the email as this helps to drive traffic to your website and other branded properties you own. Make sure the links you are inserting are not broken or being directed to a 404 page. These little things will help you to measure your email marketing performance with ease.
If your emails don’t pass the “What’s in it for me?” test, it’s time to re-think your email content strategy. Address the needs of your customers and prospects by delivering information that interests them.
If the stats for one email are unusually low compared to others (or if your bounce rate is abnormally high), your emails may not be reaching your subscribers’ inboxes. While many factors can influence email deliverability, it’s commonly caused by a high number of spam complaints. The more subscribers mark your messages as spam, the greater the likelihood that an internet service provider (e.g. Gmail, Yahoo, AOL, Outlook), may place future messages in junk folders.
Spam rates should be below 0.1 percent. To maintain a high deliverability, it’s important that you adhere to the tips mentioned throughout this guide, such as:
Sending valuable content.
Sending segmented messages.
So, these are the six metrics to be considered to measure your email marketing performance, hope you liked the blog post. I know it’s a bit lengthy to read but it’s worth it.

Email Marketing is a must nowadays and it’s the cheapest and most effective way of marketing channel as it delivers a whopping 4300% ROI, maximum when compared to all other mediums of marketing.
So, to fulfill the winning dreams, it is must to learn some email marketing tips and tricks.
In this blog post, we are going to talk about various factors of email marketing like types of emails, how to create a power-packed email, how the mail should be designed keeping your subscribers in mind, and what is the suitable time to send your emails.
Let’s start with our little email marketing tips and tricks session.
There are basic four types of email types we can create:
The main purpose this type of email serves is to confirm that new subscribers now wants to receive your mail. It works as an autoresponder to those who sign up for your newsletters or email subscription.
As the name suggests, this email is to welcome your new subscriber to your list and thank them for joining. If you promised some offer during sign up, this is the time when you should deliver it.
Again, as the name suggests, broadcast mailer works as a one-time message mail, so you can design it in advance. You may use a broadcast to inform subscribers about an upcoming sale or event or to send monthly newsletters or blog updates.
Also known as autoresponders, follow-ups are messages created in advance and automatically sent in a sequence to those who sign up to your emails. A follow-up series is often used to introduce new
subscribers to a company and products. It’s a step by step process. In the first email, you can welcome new subscribers, following with the welcome message, teach them more about your company and products, and how they may benefit from them.
Or, you can shoot a series of emails to further educate your subscribers about a niche topic (such as how to use a product or service).
A dentist, for example, might create a follow-up series with healthy gum tips (e.g. When to go for a checkup, or how to brush properly etc) that can help any new customer. In this way, your emails allow you to drive people to your website or business.
Before you even begin thinking about writing your emails, consider the value you hope to give to your subscribers. With any branded content your audience will read or watch, they will always ask “What’s in it for me?”
In your emails, the answer should be clear within the subject line and first half of your email. This is crucial in creating effective emails strategy that people not only want to sign up for but also open again and again. And the more loyal they become to your emails and brand, the better it is for business.
Not sure what to write about? Here are some general topics any business can cover:
• Industry News
• Product Information / Upcoming Sales
• Alternate ways people can use your product or service
• Customer Spotlight / Customer Testimonial
• User Generated Content(Social media posts)
• Company History
• Case Studies
• Special Events
• Featured Blog Content
While you can use any of the topics above to start our email campaign, don’t hesitate to ask your subscribers what type of content they’d like to receive from you. Simply send along a survey, or ask for them to respond to your email with ideas and feedback. If you want to create content that your subscribers love and benefit from, it might be easier to learn right from the source. To take your email message to the next level, consider adding a personalized touch. Addressing each subscriber by their first name instead of “Sir or Madame” creates a more intimate brand experience.
Great content is an essential pillar to creating an effective email, but it goes hand in hand with the presentation. Not only are visuals processed 60,000 times faster than text, they also have the ability to influence a person’s emotions, which then impacts their behavior.
If you’re not a pro designer, the task may seem a bit tough. But by simply following the basics or downloading a pre-designed email template, sending beautiful emails can be very easy task.
Some designing options that we should consider while designing our email,
While there are many variables that affect whether or not a person opens your email, one element you can control is when you send it. To determine the best day and time to send your emails, research the average send times in your specific industry.
If you want to see if your unique subscribers have different preferences, try sending an email on different days and at various times. Then, review your open rates to determine which gets the most opens.
Another thing to consider is consistency. By sticking with a regular send schedule (such as every Monday or the last Thursday of each month), your subscribers will have a better idea of when they can expect to receive content from you. This not only makes it easier for you to stay organized from an email creation standpoint, it also makes you appear more trustworthy to customers and prospects.
In addition to sending generic emails to your entire subscriber list, you might want to consider sending emails with tailored content to a specific group within your audience.For example, an online clothing retailer with customers from around the world might send promotional emails to a segment of subscribers based on where they live. This can allow a business owner to send emails specific to local seasons and national holidays. By providing content that’s even more relevant to your subscribers, the greater the chance they’ll make a purchase.

For many small business owners, managing the daily operations of a company is a full-time job. While you may succeed in managing all the roles, you’ve probably felt like there’s never enough time to do it all and that too at the same time.
As a result, it’s common for marketing to become an afterthought for business owners as they are already struggling with the “essential” tasks, how could they possibly add another thing to the list?
With email marketing, however, promoting your business and acquiring new customers or connecting with existing customers becomes a whole lot easier – and that’s only a preview of the much bigger email marketing picture here.
It may seem tough but it’s a lot easier and cheaper and effective than rest of the marketing techniques.
Email marketing delivers a return of 4,300 percent, and it frees up your time so that you can focus more on your business. And consumers love it. Take a look – the stats don’t lie:
of consumers prefer to receive commercial communications via email
of consumers have made a purchase online as a result of an email marketing message
more is spent by consumers who receive email offers than those who don’t
Easing thing out, email marketing is a powerful communication tool to develop the rapport with your customers. It gives you a chance to speak to a lot of people at once and expand your reach at times. And it allows you to stay connected with loyal customers and on-the-fence prospects who otherwise may have never interacted with your brand again.
Let’s talk about a scenario to understand things in a better way: An individual is exploring your website. He looks around a few pages but leaves with an empty shopping cart when he doesn’t see a sweater in his favorite color. Maybe he will return and consider making a purchase, but the chances are slim.
Now imagine he had a chance to hear from you again – an opportunity to sign up to your email list and leave the door open for future interactions. And quite possibly, a win-win scenario of a sale for you and a satisfied customer who found a sweater in the perfect shade of his choice.
Email is not just a way to publish your name everywhere on the web and in the people’s email accounts – it’s a way to gel up with people, develop that trust bond, and show them what value you hold for them through your business and that’s the best policy to grow your business with email marketing.
And that’s what sets email marketing apart from traditional advertising. Instead of just telling consumers about your company and hoping they make a purchase, you’re making real connections with those who are truly interested in your business and building long-lasting trust. Considering that most people prefer to communicate with brands through their inbox, email marketing is a no-brainer. So what are you waiting for?
What do you hope to achieve through email marketing? While this may change over time, it’s important to consider the purpose of your emails and set goals that are both measurable and attainable. For those just starting out with email marketing, you may want to focus your goal on growing subscribers. In this case, your goal might look like the following: I plan to collect 1,000 email subscribers over the next 12 months by leveraging online and offline opportunities to attract sign-ups.
By including a numeric value, a due date, and a general idea of how you plan on meeting that number, you’ll have a clear target to work towards. It can even provide guidance for executing tactics that’ll help you achieve your end goal and grow your business with email marketing.
As you plan your tactics, also consider the target audience you hope to reach. For example, a fitness trainer with a focus on health and wellness might reach out to those who want to start exercising and changing their diet. Understanding your ideal customers will help you determine the best ways to connect and communicate with them.
Set goals with numeric values, a due date, and a general idea of how you plan on meeting that number.
The sign-up form is where your website visitors will submit their email address to begin receiving your emails. Typically, you can put it in the header or sidebar of a website page, or as a pop-up box that displays over a website.
It’s an easy first step for both you the business owner and your prospects, and one of the most important to grow your business with email marketing. Why? Because this is the place where you must convince your visitors that it holds value for them and they can get it by signing up for your emails.
There are a few details to consider when creating your sign up form:
Within your sign up form, briefly, explain the purpose of your emails and why visitors should sign up to receive them. Everyone who
sees your sign up form will wonder “What’s in it for me?” – and it’s essential that you answer this question in your form. If you plan on offering an incentive, such as a free eBook or printable, be sure to mention this in your message. While you can include a variety of fields in your sign up form (e.g. name, address, state, favorite color), don’t go crazy just for the fun of it – the basics will do.
Call to Action (CTA)
This is the part of your form where you ask your readers to take action. In this case, the CTA will be to sign up for emails. But instead of going with the generic “Sign Up” button, try using
a unique and action-oriented phrase, such as “Get awesome information now!” or “Send me my free eBook!”
While the form should be featured on your homepage (preferably above “the fold” in the header), consider adding it to the sidebar and on other pages, such as your blog. To really grab a visitor’s attention, consider using a pop-up or lightbox form.
From a design perspective, your sign up form should be consistent with your company website and/or branding, yet still, stand out from the rest of your website. This will allow for a cohesive user experience, which further adds to your business’s credibility.
Additionally, consider the size of your sign up form, as well as colors that may be more attention-grabbing.
Now that you have a place to collect subscribers, it’s time to focus on how to do so.
Offering an incentive your audience will want is a great way to encourage them to sign up to your emails. Some incentive ideas include a free trial or discount on a service or product, a downloadable checklist, or even an eBook.
Use Social Media
Tap into your social following on platforms such as Facebook and Twitter by encouraging them to subscribe to your emails. Add a sign-up form to your Facebook business page, tease content exclusive to those signed up to receive your emails, or post a link to a hosted web form.
Run A Contest
Feature a valuable prize and host a contest that requires an email address upon submission. Be sure to promote it on your website and social media!
Use a Third-Party Integration
From landing pages and shopping carts to membership clubs and pop-up forms, you can connect your ESP with a unique integration tool to help grow your subscribers.
Whether you’re at an event or in your brick-and-mortar store, you can leverage these interactions with customers and prospects to sign up for your emails. Download a mobile email sign up app to your phone or tablet, or use an “old school” pen and paper form that can be easily transported from your store’s register to your next event.

Alexa is very popular among the bloggers as it is considered to be criteria to judge of how authentic or popular your website is?
A few years back it isn’t the case as nobody knew what alexa is or how it works. But now the internet is flooded with so many websites and the competition has grown so fast that now everybody is in the race. So, apart from doing your regular things like posting a blog, sharing a thing or two or tutoring people with some “how to……” content, you need to think out of the box and put that little extra effort that is needed to boost your rankings.
Before taking a deep knowledge of some tips to improve your alexa global rank, let us learn what alexa actually is.
According to Alexa,
Your Alexa Rank is an estimate of how popular your site is relative to all other sites.
Source – Alexa Blog
Alexa is a Web Information Company, they rank the website on many factors like traffic. Alexa rank is updated daily.
Many SEO specialists, including me, suggest not to consider Alexa rank when you do SEO for your website as it is just a metric which pretty much determines on the traffic you are getting through alexa toolbar installed people as it is the only way alexa can know your traffic.
Well, there is one more thing to it. If you have purchased a pro edition of alexa, you need to certify your site’s metric in order to make alexa record the amount of traffic you are getting.( Of course, this one’s for the pro version which many aren’t using).
There are many metrics like Page Rank, Domain Authority available on The Internet, So why should we focus on boosting our Alexa Rank?
Answer to it is,
Many advertisers (not Google Adsense) focus on Alexa rank for advertising on your website.
So it’s Important to get lesser Alexa rank for every webmaster who depends pretty much on advertising for their payout.
Now, since we have learned what alexa is, how it works and is it worth working for alexa, let see some tips to improve your alexa global rank.
Let’s check the article below to find the best tips to improve your alexa global rank.
First and Foremost and let’s say the most important of them all is,
Alexa toolbar sends yours hits to Alexa servers to get your required website Alexa rank.
After installing Alexa toolbar, when you visit your site, Alexa toolbar will consider a hit and send it back to your site’s traffic tracking data that Alexa is monitoring to give your site a rank.
It’s dramatically increasing your website ranking if your site is below 1 million like 30 lacs or 50 lacs.
Install Alexa Toolbar from your favorite browser, as the browser you are using more will help to maintain the records for you.
Installing Alexa Toolbar really helps to increase your website ranking.
But, the biggest problem is,
All clicks or hits on your site aren’t generated by you and unfortunately not every visitor visiting your site will have Alexa toolbar installed on its browser, and many visitors visit your site through smartphones as well.
Alexa is smart enough to track visits on your website but isn’t it helpful for us if we help Alexa to track hits on our site? Certainly, this is one of the best tips to improve your alexa global rank.
For this situation, use Alexa widget on your site.
Alexa widget works like an Alexa toolbar installed in your website visitor and every hit make changes your site ranking quickly.
Add the code below in your Website’s footer but make sure it is on the homepage as most of the people land on your homepage first. Replace www.weblizar.com with your website name.
I have mentioned it in my previous blogs and will say it again. Undoubtedly, unique content is the key to success. If your content is unique, authentic and trustworthy, your site will get more traffic for sure.
Search Engines loves unique and new content, and they prioritize content based on their freshness and uniqueness.
When you write unique content on some topics, Google makes sure to give you top spot on their page for related queries.
Most of the traffic comes from search engines first page and if your article is found on the first page then it is bound to drive a lot of traffic to your website and this will help to increase your Alexa global rank as well as your country rank too.
Writing regularly helps to increase your blog rank up quickly.
Do you love dead blogs?
So think if your blog does not update regularly, how will you get the decent amount of traffic which is needed to give you overall alexa rank a boost.
Tip: Write at least 2 to 3 post weekly with fresh and unique content and check how fast Alexa rank increases. Make sure to do a little survey of people are actually searching before you start writing your blog as this will give you a head start of what to write about. You can use Google Keyword Planner for that.
Everyone’s now connected to the internet through social media.
Many users are only limited to Facebook or Twitter to get the best news or results.
Try to share your content on social media as it is the biggest traffic mine in the world where you can dig traffic depending on the efforts you are applying. Make sure you are not spamming unnecessarily as you can get banned from various pages or groups for spamming your content.
Set up Facebook, Twitter and Google+ page for your website.
Also, submit your site to StumbleUpon, Digg, and Reddit.
Try to write emotional, questionable content which is hard for people to not share on social media.
If you want to impress your visitor then it matters and alexa helps you to identify popularity of your competitor website as you can check any website’s limited stats through Alexa.

Many times we want things according to our way, especially when we are paying for the things. WordPress themes are one of them and it consists of a deep and dense jungle of thousands of line of code which makes one perfect theme. It’s pretty hard for a non-techy person to crawl into this web of code and customize it according to its own need. In this article, we will show you how to customize wordpress site by adding custom CSS without editing any theme files.
There are two ways to which we can add a custom CSS to our wordpress theme,
As soon as WordPress 4.7 (Vaughan) launched it brought along a lot of new changes and adding a custom css is one of them, users can now add custom CSS directly from WordPress admin area. This is extremely easy to do and as usual, users can now see the live preview as soon as they are making any changes to the website.
Head over to Themes »»» Customize page.
As soon as you’ll click on customize, WordPress theme customizer interface will be launched.
You will see your site’s live preview with a bunch of options on the left pane. Click on the Additional CSS tab at the last in the left pane.
Through this tab, you can add your custom CSS and as soon as you add a correct CSS rule, you will be able to see the changes on your website’s live preview box on the right.
You can add multiple custom CSS code, to make changes to your website. Add the code until the site becomes as you want it to be, but don’t forget to hit the ‘Save and Publish’ button once you are done with your changes.
Note: Any custom CSS that you add using theme customizer is only available with that particular theme. If you would like to use it with other themes, then you will need to copy and paste it to your new theme using the same method.
As method name suggest, we will require a plugin to help us edit our websites CSS. It is majorly useful for users who using the previous version than WordPress 4.7.
The first thing you need to do is install and activate the Simple Custom CSS plugin. Upon activation, you need to go to Appearance »»» Custom CSS and paste or write down your CSS code.
Always remember to press the ‘Update Custom CSS’ button to save your CSS.
The custom CSS that you have implemented is now live, you can see it in action on the live version of your website.
Note: Another sure shot advantage of using this method is that your custom CSS will be available even when you change your theme.
Both methods described above are recommended for beginners as advanced users have the privilege to add custom CSS directly to their themes as they have sound knowledge of the consequences they can bear if a single piece of code goes wrong.
However, adding custom CSS snippets into your parent theme is not recommended. Your CSS changes will be lost if you accidentally update the theme without saving your custom changes.
The best way to get rid of all problems at once is to implement changes on a child theme. However, many beginners don’t want to or don’t know how to create a child theme. Apart from adding custom CSS they really don’t know how they will be using that child theme.
Added advantage of using custom CSS plugins is that it allows you to store your CSS away from your main theme so that in the case of any updates, there will be no harm either to your CSS files or to your main theme. This way you can easily switch themes and your custom CSS will still be there.
Another great way to add custom CSS to your WordPress site is by using the CSS Hero plugin. This wonderful plugin allows you to edit almost everything in your WordPress site without writing a single line of code. Sounds interesting, isn’t it!

Google AdSense is one of the most trusted and professional way of earning money by showcasing your true passion towards writing and let the people learn from your content and share that knowledge with others. Google AdSense is entrusted by most of the advertisers and bloggers from the past few years, and usually, they never accept anyone randomly who is trying to apply for an AdSense account. Only the most professional approach will help you let in or else Google will simply reject your application.
As per the study, Google accepts only 3 accounts of every 1000 applications they receive each day for AdSense account. If you are trying hard to get an account approval or have faced rejection earlier, follow these simple guidelines on how to get quick approval for google adsense. Though these below tips won’t get you the account approved instantly, but will surely work if you try inheriting each step mentioned below. The points that we will mention below contains a lot of weight and are from the list of major factors on how to get quick approval for google adsense.
So let’s get started, but before that make sure you follow all these guidelines without compromising with any single one of them, else your application will be rejected without any further pending approval. Remember that everything which I mentioned below counts. Don’t compromise on the number of posts, own domain, good design, and other metrics, else the chances of rejection is higher at your end. So here we go, the top most powerful guidelines to read before applying to Google AdSense.
If you are using WordPress, make sure your website/blog has at least 40 quality articles which should not have any copied content or minimum if required because 100% authentic content is a myth now as whatever you are even thinking has been written somewhere on the internet. Since the internet is so vast, willingly or unwillingly, it is not possible for any human being to create 100% authentic or original content for the world but it will be 100% original for you as you know you are writing it. Your content on the articles should be extremely rich and make sure you use relevant images where ever required. Try to add two lengthy articles of more than 2000 words each. If you are using HTML website or any other non-CMS version of the blog, make sure you have at least 50 pages on your website in form or articles or landing pages.
If you avoid providing any of the above information on your website, Google might decline your request saying Insufficient Content or Unacceptable Site Content. So make sure they see enough content on your website before applying for the program. The more the content, the better chances of approval.
According to a study, your website will go through a faster approval process if you have more high-quality content on Health, Internet Marketing, Business, Law, Technology, Entrepreneurship, Travel, Lifestyle and Social Media. Google will take your application as a serious offense if your website contains any of the prohibited content mentioned in this link here.
Statistics shows that Google AdSense might reject your approval if your website is on event blogging and micro niche blogging. In this particular blogging, you limit your blog content to only one particular subject and create a spam domain around it to rank higher. Eg: www.uselectionresults2016.com (US Election Results 2016). In some cases, if you have observed Google Ads in these of websites, probably they have applied the adsense through an another account and placed the ads in this event niche blogging to earn quick money. Although it is not long lasting since the micro niche topic vanishes off quickly and lowers the traffic volume which decreases your chances of earning more.
Before applying to AdSense, make sure you are not allowing or placing any other third party banner ad code on your website. Google Adsense Team will strictly look into your website manually and they dislike witnessing some third party ads integrated on your website. Strictly stay away from Infolinks, Chitika, Yahoo Ads or any other third party network to get the first impression clean on your website. Make sure you put only the fresh content and some regularly used widgets on the website.
Also, stay away from affiliate links such as hosting programs, Amazon affiliates, Clickbank or any other at least until your account is approved.
Google always wants to keep it’s image clean and that is the reason why they want each and every website to be crystal clear about what they are offering since google is referring it to its users. Building a clear design with easy user navigation and experience will weigh your chances of getting AdSense approved in the first attempt itself. Basics are the key to secret and many a times lot of people miss that. Google believes that if you maintain professional color scheme on your website, the user might be willing to come back and click on the relevant ads which are displayed under your content.
So you have to make sure that you are maintaining a neat and clean design before applying to AdSense. I would recommend you to buy one professional template and get it installed on your website.
Adding Google Analytics code on your website is a trusted factor for the approval. Adding Analytics onto your website show that you are actively tracking your visitors and is much serious about the statistics of your users who visit your website. If you haven’t created one, click here to register the program. Once registered, get your tracking code by creating a new account under the accounts tab and enter your website name, URL and other required details. Place the code on each page of your website to track the data instantly.
Just like Google Analytics, you need to even verify with Google Webmaster program, which has the complete access to your website in search perspective. With Google Webmaster Tools, you can track your website critical errors and fix them on a daily basis. Click here to register and click on “Add a Site” to enter your website URL. Verify your website ownership through any of the recommended methods and complete the process to keep your account functioning actively.
Also, adding the Bing Webmaster Tools to your website will add more credibility to your domain that you are serious about the website search visibility. Though this guideline is pretty easy to perform, many people will get comfortable without knowing the importance of installing these tools.
Creating a sitemap doesn’t take too much of your time. If you are using WordPress, I recommend Google XML Sitemaps By Arne Brachhold or you can use Yoast SEO plugin which auto-generates your sitemap in XML format, you just have to put it in your robots.txt file mentioning to Googlebot that you own a sitemap and Googlebot should crawl it. And if you are using any other platform, I recommend you to check out XML-Sitemaps website for more info. Installing a sitemap on your website can help search engine bots to index your website faster since it is one the trustworthy factor. Also if you have images on your website and you are not sure about the SEO for the images, you can also try SEO Images Optimizer Pro Tool.
Creating Robots.txt file on your website will help you get rid of all the unwanted and unindexed resources you have on your website. I have restricted all the unwanted data indexation to search engines, which adds a lot of value to your SEO efforts of ranking the pages higher on Google. You can check weblizar’s robots.txt file here. Plus, the robots.txt file is another great feature to add to your website to increase the trust factor both by the user and by google.
Does Google consider Alexa rank? It’s always been a question to ask among the newbies. As many people disagree that Google doesn’t care about your global rankings, I strongly believe that this is one major checklist any manual operator checks before even opening your website statistics. How can anyone quickly judge a website performance? The answer is simple, through Alexa ranking. So make sure you install the Alexa toolbar. Although I would not recommend going coo coo for your alexa ranking as to be fair enough it is just needed once until your adsense account is approved. Even I check my alexa once a month.
Note: Before applying to AdSense, make sure your website global Alexa ranking is less than 400K for the faster approval process. Most of the time, the website above this rank are considered to be fairly new with lesser content and lower authenticity.
Google wants to know your identity before you signup to their AdSense program. So, it is mandatory to create these pages on your website for better visibility and faster approval.
In the about us section, mention who you are, and why is this website made for, why should people visit your website, what is the benefit. The more clear, the better the chances of your approval. Keep your spelling mistakes, grammar and punctuation clear when you do this. You can use the grammarly extension for your browser to make your content grammar free.
A lot of people do create websites through blog spot and free WordPress platforms to apply AdSense. AdSense team will take a owned domain more seriously out of the two. Investing $2 on a domain name is not a big deal when you have healthy chances of getting approval. So don’t give yourself a second chance to apply the AdSense program and get your own domain as early as possible. You can purchase it from HostGator or GoDaddy on cheap prices.
Once you have your own domain, create an email ID with your name (firstname.lastname@example.org) to apply the AdSense program. Eg: email@example.com is tended to get more attention compared to firstname.lastname@example.org. Note that your free website programs give you the privilege or adding your custom domains without paying any additional fee.
Traffic on your site has always been an important factor whether it is for google adsense or for search engines, if you have a lot of traffic on your site every day, you’ll get quick approval for adsense. So I would suggest not to rush for an adsense account as soon as you create a blog, wait for few weeks (at least one month) try filling your blog with more rich content and images and wait until your site gets 50+ visitors every day. If you are not getting this least amount of traffic every day, chances of rejection from google are much higher.
