Great Plugin: Bulk City Landing Pages for Wordpress

Today's review is on the Bulk City Landing Pages (BCLP) plugin by Picobarn

TIP: I would HIGHLY recommend building your page in Wordpress first as a draft using a city name. 
1. Check the visual tab and when it looks how you want, copy the code from the text tab.
2. Put the code you copied in a word doc, use find & replace to add the [pb-city] shortcode
3. Insert the new code from the word doc into the BCLP plugin area, and voila - perfect bulk pages every time!

Wordpress plugin creates Multiple Geographically Targeted Landing Pages instantly using dynamic text.
This is a great plugin. It is one of the few bulk page creators that actually delivers what it sets out to do. There are many bulk page creators out there that don't perform anywhere near as good as this. It is easy to use, and even allows HTML in the page creation, making it full-proof every time.

HTML Page Sitemap Reviewed Wordpress Plugin

We recently created a website that transitioned from HTML to Wordpress, andobviously for SEO purposes, and human use, an HTML sitemap was necessary. We tried multiple HTML sitemap plugins during this time. In the time it took to install and uninstall the useless one's we could have manually created one. I 'm glad we persevered to try the HTML Page Sitemap plugin though as it is extremely compact and easy to use.

"Adds an HTML (Not XML) sitemap of your blog pages (not posts) by entering the shortcode [html_sitemap]"
The shortcodes make it easy to exclude certain pages that any novice WordPress user can do it by following the simple directions. I highly recommend this plugin to anyone who needs an HTML sitemap for their Wordpress site.

Simple 301 Redirects Reviewed Wordpress Plugin

Today we review the awesome Simple 301 Redirects plugin for Wordpress.

It is simple to install and easy to use. Redirecting your old URL's is made super easy - you don't need any real technical experience (as long as you know how to use Wordpress, you'll be fine) to make this work which is great.

Handy Tip: Use to look at previous snapshots of your old website before doing any redirects. This will allow you to make sure that you have not missed any pages! #ProTip :)

Plugin Review:

Simple 301 Redirects provides an easy method of redirecting requests to another page on your site or elsewhere on the web. It's especially handy when you migrate a site to WordPress and can't preserve your URL structure.
Great plugin. Makes it so much easier than digging through my .htaccess file. I had to employ a lot of redirects when I changed domains and CMS, as the URL structure changed. This plugin saved our SEO!
