How to Invest Your WordPress Business Profits

Learning Object-Oriented Programming using WordPress

One of the biggest criticisms aimed at WordPress and many of the developers within our ecosystem is the overuse of procedural coding and lack of proper object-oriented coding principles.

It’s a topic that’s been discussed over and over, including an episode on the Mastermind.fm show. In fact, Carl Alexander, one of the major OOP evangelists in the WP world, was on that show. The great news is that he has just released a course about object-oriented programming in WordPress.

Best WooCommerce Extension Plugin Stores

In this post, I’ll show you some of my favorite third-party extension developers. While there are many sellers of WooCommerce extensions, it is very important to get your WooCommerce plugins from reputable companies who develop with good coding practices and provide quality support and updates.

Gutenberg Failing Hard – Should We Be Worried?

The latest big innovation to come to WordPress, Gutenberg, appears to be failing hard, at least judging by user reception and reviews on the plugin’s profile on WordPress.org. The Gutenberg project has been heavily criticised ever since it was announced by Matt Mullenweg a few years back. The biggest concerns have been about the way that feedback from developers and users was handled (mostly apparently ignored), whether this should have been the focus of the core development team versus other features, and how it will affect themes and existing websites.

How 16 Companies are Dominating the Google Results, Even in the WordPress Space

Earlier this week I came across an article on SEO blog Viperchill about how 16 companies are dominating the world’s Google search results. I found it quite eye-opening as well as a bit disconcerting.

Apart from that, they can interlink between them in order to dominate the search results.
