WOW. Time does really fly around this time of year. Here I was thinking I could keep my series on Orwell Pro going at a good pace when all of a sudden its been almost three weeks since I posted to my blog. And you’re knowing about Orwell Pro is important too because of the way the SE’s are looking at website content these days it is very prudent to find an easy, manual way of consistently adding good, unique content to your site. Thats what Orwell Pro allows you to do – whether you are updating a regular html site or a WordPress blog.
Using Orwell Pro to update your WordPress Blog is quite easy and actually can be done in two different ways – one directly and one indirectly. The direct way involves opening your Orwell Pro project and and going to the WordPress tab. On the WordPress tab, you will find a spot to but in the URL for your WordPress blog xmlrpc.php file. This is the file that works with the outside posting to your blog, whether the post is from Orwell Pro, RSS2Blog or some other post method.
Enter the URL for the xmlrpc.php file of your blog in the appropriate field on the WordPress tab. Then, enter your blog user name and password in the correct fields. Now you are ready to pull in your article content.
Open a PLR article from your computer or use the Orwell Pro interface to find a relevant article for your blog that you want to post up. Don’t forget to edit the article if you wish to add your commentary to the article. Adding a commentary (via the %commentary% token) to the article places additional relevant text before or after the article to make the page unique. Very powerful!
Now, fill in the tokens you want for Title, Commentary, Resource, Body, etc. in the WordPress tab Title and Body fields. This is how your content will go out to your blog in the post. Orwell Pro allows you to post the whole article or, just a given number of sentences from the article to the blog. Once you have done this hit OK and then use the “Export to WordPress” button to update your blog! Its that easy.
The indirect way of posting to your blog involves using Orwell Pro and a tool like RSS2Blog. You may recall from a previous post that Orwell Pro can create text files from article content. These text files can be appended together to form one huge file that would be the content of an RSS2Blog textpod. The RSS2Blog tokens for #TITLE#Title#/TITLE# and #BREAK# can be added into the created textpod content from within Orwell Pro so that when you autopost all your content is partitioned by individual articles. Posting with RSS2Blog (automatically) is good too if you don’t want to manually post from within Orwell Pro. RSS2Blog is very powerful and has features to randomize the posting of content to your blog to make it look natural. Again, Orwell Pro and RSS2Blog are a very powerful combination.
So, if you are serious about sustaining your website or blog over the long run and need a “semi automatic” way of updating or adding to your site’s content, give Orwell Pro a look. It makes the job of keeping your site updated with fresh content easy and quick while not looking like anything is automated – and it really isn’t.
To your success,
