2. What system or platform are you using?
Answer: We are using WordPress as our platform as it has been shown to be the most flexible and popular blogging system.
3. O.K I want to create a blog post, now what do I do?
Answer: Once you have logged in onto Adlandpro, you will see at the top of the page the different options of the different things you can do on the Adlandpro site. Go over to Blogs and you will note there is a dropdown menu. Click on “Apply to contribute”. You will be taken to a new page, where you will find different information including a guide to remind you to fill in your blogging author profile ( which is not the same as your Adlandpro community profile). At the bottom of this page you will see “write something” which is the link where you will be taken to write your blog post.
4. Do I have to go through this every time I want to write a new post?
Answer: After the initial setting up your blogging community profile and have had your first blog post written/approved and published, all you have to do is log into your Adlandpro blogging community account and you will be taken to your own personal dashboard.
5. Hey I don’t see my blog being published, whats going on?
Answer: Because all blog posts have to be manually approved by the administration, it takes time to go through the posts to be sure that they are within the Adlandpro blogging cummunity guidelines. We make all effort to get blog posts up and visible within 12 – 24 hours.
6. I still don’t see my blog post published!
Answer: If you do not see your blog post published it normally means that your blog post has not been accepted for any of the reasons that are listed on the Blogging Guidelines. We will make all attempts to contact you through the email you have provided to let you know the exact reason for the rejection of your post so please make sure that you have a valid email listed so that we can contact you. You will have (7) days from the time you were sent the letter to make the necessary corrections in your post. If we have not received any mail from you that corrections have been made, your post will be deleted.
7. I don’t get the manually approved thing, I thought I could write anything?
Answer: While there are hundreds if not thousands of blogging communities on the net, we pride ourselves on being a blogging community with standards of excellence. One of the unique USP’s for this community is sharing quality content, where every post written is branding you the author. We also help with editing for spelling, grammar and even images so that your work is seen in the best light. When you fill in your profile for the blogging community you can advertise your business or company, so there is not need to write posts that are strictly affiliate marketing linking posts. Please read the Blogging guidelines for this community so that you gain a better understanding of what is “not” approved.
8. Can I copy and paste my original blog post onto to this community?
Answer: There has been a lot of debate going on regarding this practice and while some people see value in doing this style of “syndication” other are totally against it citing reasons of the duplicate content issue as well as diluting content.
After much thought, we are allowing this form of blog post to be allowed as long as the post has a back link back to the original post and as long as the post in question fits the Blogging community guidelines.
9. I want to share my posts, how do I do this?
Answer: We encourage you to share to your friends and contacts and there are sharing icons next to your post to help you for easy sharing.
10. How many posts can I do in a day?
Answer: Just as Google says that more than one post a day will not give you extra authority, we in the Adlandpro blogging community feel the same way. You may post one article a day.
11. I want to add posts and have them published over time. How many drafts may I have on this blogging community?
Answer: Because of the nature of this community service, holding posts in drafts is not permitted. With the amount of posts that people are creating, it is not possible to have a number of posts in drafts. We suggest that you keep your drafts in a file on your computer or on a service such as Google Drive.
