Thank you very much for your extremely useful link!
Although I'm no expert at all, I managed 🙂
And also thanks for sharing so many tips on your blog (which i'm following now).
However, one thing I didn't quite get is the section "Add our custom back to top shortcode in Footer".
I'm not sure where to place the code you provide. If you have time, please let me know.
Note: since I didn't know where to paste the mentioned code, I've been using Genesis Simple Edits Plugin (which I activated after adding the shortcode you kindly provided).
The "Return to Top" link is therefore not integrated into my Footer but placed below it.
Please see for yourself: http://www.test69kq.elallo.net
thank you very much for the article.
so the answer seems to be no, since my host is not listed amongst those who provide this functionality.
however my host does provide what they call Extra Web Security.
i'm not sure that might be causing the problem. if you've any suggestion, please let me know.
After unprotecting the pages, i did some tests but no result.
I've just deactivated the plugin: still no success.
sorry but i'm not sure what you mean by "I had wp-admin password protected in cPanel." where can i find this setting in case i've it enabled?
Thanks for your reply.
- nothing as far as Google is concerned
- some of my pages (neither the Blog nor the Contact page obviously) are password protected with BAW Multipass for Protected Pages, but i'm not sure this is what you mean.
Thanks again CharlieL for the information and links.
I need to look into that, yes. So it's now on my ToDos list with high priority since I can't do so right now. 🙂
Thank you very much indeed for your detailed explanation. It's extremely useful for somebody like me who is totally new to the landing page concept. Now I understand it thanks to you. The problem is Premise developers when selling us the product do assume we already know it... And once we've purchased it they wonder why the heck we ask so basic questions...
I'll therefore pay heed to your good advice which seems to apply even to services about which people need to reflect and come back later.
The idea with the landing page is to directly make a connection with the visitor.
I'm now with you. Thanks again.
Thanks for your reply. It seems more clear now. I need to create one or two landing pages with links, yes.
Thanks for your replies (sorry for the delayed answer, I didn't realized I hadn't subscribed to the thread).
What I'm trying to sell are not T-shirts, it's a service which most of the people won't buy. On other respects, it requires reflexion from the customer, this is certainly not something you decide upon in 10 minutes after reading a (supposedly) convincing landing page. Potential customers are, in my case, necessarily scarce and they'll need to come back to my page, at least a couple of times, so that they have time to consider whether they embark or not. I therefore think it might be wise to do as @braddalton suggested.
But, in case I'm wrong, I prefer to check with you again by trying to understand what you exactly mean. My landing page won't be part of a paid advertising campaign either. I'm not sure I follow what Tim wrote (seems contradictory, sorry):
if you don’t have obvious links to other areas of your site, you’re going to waste money and lose people who may have otherwise become customers (or subscribers or whatever) via a slower path than the one you wanted them to follow. It’s kind of arrogant. Plus, what’s stopping people from just going to the main URL by removing the rest of the address.
If you have time, could you please make it clear for me? Thanks again.
Thanks again for your detailed explanation (sorry about the the private message).
As requested, and since I may not have done things the right way, here’s a link to my site
The tagline (description of the site) I entered in “Genesis > SEO Settings” is “Biographies de Personnes – Entreprises – Collectivités” while my site’s name is “votre biographie” (“your biography”). Description (tagline) is in this case very important since I want people to know that the offered service is not only about writing biographies of individuals but also about writing companies’ biographies and collectivities’ biographies.
Please let me know what you think.This reply has been marked as private.
@BillMuray - Thank you very much for your detailed, helpful explanation.
The title tag you mention, if I follow you well the tagline, is the name of my website, right. Thanks for reminding its importance.
In my thread, I was referring to the description of the "name" of my site, which I entered in "Genesis > SEO Settings" and didn't display on any of page of my site (yes I'm using Genesis to handle my SEO and I'm also using Premise (for the first time...) which I still need to set up).
That being said, it's sometimes not that easy to choose a name (tagline) for one's website, mainly when multiple sites offer (or seem to offer as far as search engines are concerned) the same service/product.
For example (I take a dummy example), you sell pizzas, right. Your URL is http://www.carlospizza.com. How can you name it? Well, something like "Carlos' Pizzas". As for the above mentioned description, it can be too long if you try to be original and different from your competitors, for instance: "Carlos' Pizzas - Home Delivery - 24h/7day Service". I assume such a description should be mentioned in your Genesis SEO Settings but not right below your tagline (name...). You'd rather leave the usual WordPress "description" field empty and display it somewhere else on your pages with an attractive design.
Hope I followed you.
Thanks Braddalton and Chrissy Morin!
If I understand well you seem to share more or less the same opinion: description must not necessarily be displayed on my Home page BUT description must appear in the built in Genesis related fields in the SEO Settings part.
Well, this is what I did filling the "Meta for Home Page Description" field. I also copied-pasted it in the "Document's Title Separator" field, right after the Separator which looks like a very long hyphen.
Is that right?
(If you ok it, this solution is great since it doesn't mess up my Home Page design, mostly with Epik Theme which provides us with an efficient "Welcome Wide" widget).
Thanks for your reply.
Yes, it took me a while to figure that out although i had thoroughly read the Premise documentation... i hadn't seen the form at the bottom of the page before yesterday evening.
For those interested, the answer is yes, you can protect the mentioned portfolio page but in order to do so you need to "sell" its access as a free product.
I'm extremely disappointed by the lack of reply to my post.
It seems you want to sell Premise, doesn't it? (You regularly send links in order to buy Premise at a discounted price).
I'm prepared to buy but I do need this information. If this forum is not the proper place to ask my question, please let me know who I'm supposed to contact otherwise I won't purchase Premise, that'd be foolish from my part. If you were me, would you?
