When it comes to lead generation, it’s all about the calls, right? Well we don’t want to leave anything to chance, and we want to make it as easy as possible for prospective customers to be able to call your clients. Click-2-Call on mobile devices is nothing new, and we’ve added this to our themes so you can set a single phone number to be dialed from every page on your site, or if you want separate Click-2-Call numbers for each city or category that you target we’ve got you covered too.
Before starting this, I need to be completely honest: I really dislike page builders. In the last few years, page builder plugins (and those built into themes) have quite possibly caused more headaches for me and my support team than any other single category of plugins available for WordPress. This overall experience, and one too many support tickets related to a builder in a week, culminated in the following Twitter rant:
I had purchased a Standard license, which, as it turns out, does not include support for WordPress multisite. I have found multisite to be one of the greatest assets in quickly spinning up fresh WordPress sites for testing. I understand that this limitation was done intentionally to prevent customers from activating the plugin on numerous sites within a single network, but the user experience here was quite poor.

All page builders should strive to retain as much standard behavior as possible. Unfortunately, Thrive Visual Editor fails badly here, which is really too bad because if they had avoided the complete content lock-in, this would be one of the best page builders available. Unlike nearly all of the other page builders, Thrive Visual Editor does not suffer from a single common conflict that I could find, but the content lock-in is dangerous. For that reason alone, I would avoid using the plugin.
Nowadays, Facebook is encouraging marketers to look at their fan bases as a way to make paid advertising more effective rather than using it as a free broadcast channel. Additionally, Facebook says you should assume organic reach will eventually arrive at zero. So, if you really want to reach your target audience on Facebook, you’ll need to supplement your organic efforts with some paid advertising.
I originally planned to review only the builder plugins I was aware of (typically those that cause problems in our support queues) but then opted to review as many as I could find in order to be as pragmatic as possible. Perhaps some of the builder plugins never made appearances in our support queues because they were awesome and didn’t cause any problems.

With that in mind, this article is going to focus on some of my favorite machine­ based exercises and why I feel that they’re so valuable in one’s pursuit of building more muscle. I will not be naming any specific machines by brand but rather simply discussing various types of machines in general—most of which are common to any decently equipped commercial gym. 
The concept is simple... For each topic/niche the network wants to receive traffic for, he will create a large content heavy website encompassing as many related keywords as he can. Duplicating the process across more than 1 domain gives the traffic network owner additional opportunities and protections that he would not have if he was only using a single site.

SEO and social media work hand-in-hand to increase organic traffic. First, Google is using Twitter to discover new content. Second, social shares help build links in a non-manipulated way. Third, shares from multiple sources also boost authority for blog posts. Google+ works perfectly with Google. Compared to technical SEO, Google pays attention to relevance.


Hey, Matt! Thank you for your sharing, and I learned much from it, but I still have a question. We began to do SEO work for our site 2 years ago, and our organic traffic grew 5 times ( from 8K to 40K every day). But two years later, it is very difficult to get it grow more, even it drop to 3.2K every day. So can you give me any advice to make our site's traffic grow again? Thank you in advance!

Although we are a new company, the team has been working together on various games and assets for many publishers and developers to use in their own games. What we’ve worked on are products that have been distributed to the world in a manner or the other, and this is speaking from Thailand.The games that we’ve worked on includes MMORPGs, Mobile Games, Rhythm Mobile Games, even VR Games as well. Although we sounds funny and silly when we do things like this, our team leader is a very strict man that won’t allow errors or low-quality works to manifest in our games so we hope that you’ll put your trust in us.


Hello Pippin. Thank you again for this very clueful review. Having proceeded several miles further down the road in my search for a theme and page builder, I’m forced to say that, as a non-coder, my first priority is NOT for a page builder but a highly customizable THEME. And, so far, I’m simply not finding it. I used Woothemes Canvas for many years, with great satisfaction. The vast assortment of detailed options in the backend allowed me to avoid CSS except in rare situations, some of which could be solved with a plugin (e.g., placing a tabbed widgets layout in a sidebar). I have the highest admiration for Pootlepress and Beaver Builder, but I really don’t have the time for a deep study of CSS coding at this stage of the game. I would add a thought: most page builders are used badly, because the temptation is to build those horrible, space-chomping horizontal layouts that violate all the evidence-based rules of usability (from eye-scan studies and common experience). Thus, I would never choose a page builder that locked me into a row format. Fortunately, with Pootle Pro or Beaver Builder Pro, you can create long vertical columns that help site visitors get the information they need, without having to wander all over forty acres of screen space in gape-jawed awe for the wonderful designer. The Web was just starting to mature, by recognizing the the Internet is content-based, when this new technology came along and led us astray. I’m absolutely sure that common sense will prevail, and as the complaints mount there will be a return to sanity. Web devs need to study Roger Black, Jakob Nielsen, Steve Krug, and David Ogilvy.
Directing your content marketing efforts in the right path can help you generate organic traffic. As long as you create enticing content optimized with backlinks and long-tail keywords, you will keep the traffic coming back for more. Your content marketing efforts should focus on creating posts with novel ideas, authentic resources, and helpful guides.

Once we get past the interface problems with adding elements, the builder itself works quite well. Adding new elements is pretty smooth and editing existing ones works nicely. There were some occasional quirks that caused issues, however. For example, I added a text field and then tried to split it into two columns. When doing this, the column controls went underneath the text element below it, making the column controls inaccessible.

If you’re going the page builder route, you’d probably do yourself a favor by avoiding themeforest entirely and instead building your site using either the free Storefront or GeneratePress themes. Both offer premium options though, of course. Storefront is made by Automattic’s own WooThemes. Though if ecommerce isn’t your thing then the other might be a better fit. With these starter themes, you don’t have to switch themes everytime you want to switch designs.
At the end, I’m not entirely certain how I feel about Conductor. I do really enjoy their approach with a Customizer-like interface (similar to the Tailor builder above) and they have provided a feature that very few other builders have: complete control of the page instead of just the content area. This level of control does at times make Conductor more difficult to use because it means the site editor has to build everything, instead of just the content area. For some site editors, this will be a hurdle, but for others it will be a huge win.
I understand building a theme-specific builder but why on earth would you build a theme-specific builder plugin that only works with one theme? At that point you’ve simply made it harder for your customers to get all the features of your theme without any added benefit. If Theme Fusion offered a whole suite of themes, having a builder plugin that works exclusively with their themes would make sense, but they don’t! They make one theme: Avada.

For a long time, digital marketers summed up the properties of direct and organic traffic pretty similarly and simply. To most, organic traffic consists of visits from search engines, while direct traffic is made up of visits from people entering your company URL into their browser. This explanation, however, is too simplified and leaves most digital marketers short-handed when it comes to completely understanding and gaining insights from web traffic, especially organic and direct sources.
