What is ahref. in google analytics?
I am seeing a new visitor in my google analytics, I have never seen this before. They are ahref.com Can someone explain who this is please. Thanks
It’s an SEO tool that is used for research.
So, I assume it is nothing for me to be concerned about then. I have just never seen it before.

Should I accept new subscribbers?
In past few days I've been notified by email (from wordpress) that I need to moderate new subscribbers directly through wordpress. I've had my website for almost 6 months and t
You've begun to receive this because your WordPress user profile is set to "Anyone can register" and this is how your site can easily be hacked. The best thing to do now is go to your WordPress user settings and adjust this to stop accepting new subscribers. It's not good for your website now. Thanks for finding out!
Good question. I would like to know the answer my self.
Another thing too, they will not have access to your back office of your Wordpress unless you make them and administrator of your website.
Thanks for the info. I appreciate it.
Do you know if this is a common feature that website owners use?
Also, these subscribers did not leave comments that I can see. I just see their name and website information in a list that I am suppose to moderate.
Is this what is called "back linking"?
First you should evaluate whether the comment is related to your content at all. If not you will have trolls and other marketers trying to get links back to their website.
Another thing I do is check their website to make sure that the website is legitimate and worth linking to. If the website is not related in content or related topic I don't link to their website specially if adult content website and you have a family oriented website.
You can edit the comment before you approve it to make sure you clean the language up and anything you feel should not be there. Remember also that comments are valuable in Google's eyes for ranking purposes too.
If your getting good comments by other visitors on your website it means your content is being found online or social media. It is also great to find out where the comment came from too, then you know which platform is working in your marketing strategy.
Hope that helps,
I don't require people to subscribe in order to comment. I have it disabled.
I don't require people to subscribe in order to comment either.....I've had comments in the past couple days from people that are not on this subscribers list.
If you go to Settings > General you can uncheck the following to prevent people from creating accounts:
Membership Anyone can register
I did see that option. I am wondering if allowing people to create accounts is something that has proven to be of some benefit or maybe not.
Have you heard of anyone utilizing this feature before?
Honestly I never paid much attention to it. I’m a control freak and don’t allow people to create accounts in my site
Which editor is the best?
Ok, I am pretty new here. Got lots to learn. I have published around 25 articles, usually from the WA platform. I recently updated my editor in Wordpress and published a co
There's nothing wrong with publishing from withing WP itself. That said, you do get some added bonuses from using the Site Content tool here at WA. Most notable are:
1) Access to WA's free imagery to use in your posts.
2) Image optimization when publish from within Site Content (assuming you added the images before publishing).
3) Index alerting/tracking.
I use Site Content to create my Pages and Posts. I then edit and fine tune them in the WP editor.
Thanks for your response.
If I "publish" from the Word Press editor, is there a place to check when my article was indexed. Perhaps on Webtools?? I have not explored Webtools, but perhaps this is where I could find that information?
I appreciate any help.
Log into Google Search console and then click on URL inspection. Type in the full path of the post you're interested in and, if it's in Google's sights, you'll see information about that post. If you expand the Coverage section, you'll even see when it was last crawled and so on.
I appreciate your help. I will take a closer look at Google Search Console. Thanks again.
Is there away to use the block editor in site content as when I publish to WA Idont seem able to use the block function? Wondering if anyone’s done some training on this?
Site Content does not employ the block editor at this time. I don't know if that's in the plans or not. That said, you can convert the posts into blocks from withing the WP editor.
Thanks ... I find it very time consuming at this point to convert...was hoping there was a shortcut I was missing.
How do I get my google analytics back?
Somehow, I have lost access to my google analytics. I am not quite sure how I did it.
I have been using it for about 4 months.
I'm thinking I will go back to the t
Have you checked if your logged in using the same email when setting up your G Analytic? You need to log in with the same email when creating it otherwise you can't access it. In most cases, you're logged in with different email.
Please let me know your finding.
Thanks for responding.
After several hours of trying a thousand different things, including my different emails etc, I decided to move on. I was wasting far too much of my time going in circles with no success.
I re installed Analytics with a new tracking id number. I am up and running again, unfortunately I have lost my previous data though.
Oh well, all is good.
Thanks again for reaching out.
Article did not get indexed, wondering why?
I am pretty new (4 months) to the world of owning a website. I have over 20 posts now. I noticed the other day that one of my articles ( not a brand new one) did not get indexe
Do some revision for those articles that haven't got indexed in search results. Thanks!
You can (re)submit that particular URL in Google Search Console -> Fetch as Google -> request indexing
Is this a common thing that happens?
Honestly, ... I don't know ...
Whenever I publish a new content piece, I always use the above recommended method to get my posts/pages indexed ....
Ok, I appreciate the info.
Thanks and have an awesome day!
I have added indexing to my "to do" list when publishing a post.
I start in Site Content and publish my post from there.
I do my final editing in Word Press and update my post.
I go to Google Console and submit the new URL for indexing.
I usually get a "URL indexed" email within a few hours of submitting (I only have 30+ posts on my website so it's rather new as well).
Excellent method Mitch!
As I said :)
This has been helpful.
I am going to start submitting new articles( url) in Google Console as part of my routine.
I hope you don't mind another question.
When submitting an article to be indexed on "google console", do I submit it under the "site map" area or as a "url inspection"?
Thanks for your help.
See the screenshots Angela
Oh thanks so much!!!!
You are awesome!
Happy to help Angela!
