Funny Jokes Friday Funnies #121

Just to be a little different I though that for this weeks Friday Funnies I’ll feature several short jokes. The first one is one of those ever popular Little Johnny jokes.

Little Johnny’s Big Word Funny Joke

A teacher asked her third grade class to name things that ended with “tor” that ate things.
The first little boy said, ”Alligator.”
”Very good James, that’s a big word.”
The second boy said, “Predator.”
“Yes, that’s another big word Alan Very well done.”
Little Johnny says, “Vibrator.”
After nearly falling off her chair, she says, “That is a big word Johnny, but it doesn’t eat anything.”
“Well my sister has one and she says it eats bloody batteries like there’s no tomorrow!”

Creating An Online Shopping Outlet

Creating An Online Shopping OutletBusinesses need to learn more about creating online shopping centers before they commit to building them. When businesses want to increase their profits by using an online shopping site, they must follow all the steps listed. Missing one of the steps could lead to a problem that the business cannot correct. Before the business can get the site off the ground, the customer will be turned off. The company must remember all the items listed so that they can release a website that customers want to shop at.

The Categories

Categories have to make sense when they are used on a website. The website cannot be too cute or strange. The odd category names that companies use only confuse customers. Customers that run across category names that are too cute are more likely to find a website that is less kitschy. The website that is straightforward gains the respect of customers who believe they would organize a website in the same manner.

The Products

The company must decide the sort of products they want to carry. There are many companies that want to have a diverse lineup of products, but there are many more businesses that prefer to focus on just a few product lines. When the customer makes the decision to make their catalog large or small, they are decided the scope of the website.

The company that has a small website should have a design that makes the website appear quaint. A few categories is enough to manage the website. The company that has many products should have a large website that is dedicated to a variety of products.

The Art

The artwork on a website makes the website appear beautiful or ugly. The artwork must match the style of the company, the style of the website and the purpose of the business. When a company has good artwork, customers will note that the artwork matches what the company stands for.

There are many times when a customer must be given the keys to the castle before they shop, and the categories allow the customer to feel like they have come home. Customers are lost when these instructions are not followed, and lost customers shop elsewhere.

Ever since Google introduced its rich snippets, webmaster and bloggers alike have been tearing their hair out trying to make their sites compliant. I know, because I’ve seen how many people are Googling rich snippets, hoping that Google can solve the problem that they started in the first place. Unfortunately it seems a lot of them aren’t finding a solution to their problem.

At least this post will fix rich snippets for Flexsqueeze owners. So why all the fuss?

According to Google….

 

Adding structured data to pages on your site helps Google’s algorithms understand their content and index them better. The structured data gathered from your site can be used to improve the page’s search entry, for example, to generate rich snippets, which provide an improved page summary in our search results. There are several ways that you can add structured data to your web pages: by adding markup to your pages, using Data Highlighter, or using Google’s Merchant Center.

Even though Google tries to help us by giving examples, because of all the different themes and platforms out there these examples just seem to drive us batty. Why is it working for everyone else and not for us?

I’ve never worried about it until I started my Sports Betting blog. I want that blog to do really well and that means, as much as it pains me, I have to do all I can to please Google. That meant getting the ‘rich snippets’ to appear correctly on all my pages. It was simple enough to get the ‘authorship’ part to work so that my image appears in the search engines.

rich snippets

All I had to do for that was to add the following code….

<a rel=”author” href=”https://plus.google.com/105130553592815175528″>About Peter Pelliccia</a>

…. into the ‘footer script’ part of Flexsqueeze theme options found in the Analytics/Javascript/Favicon menu.

The problem was, even though everything else was working fine I was getting the following errors. 

Error: Missing required field “entry-title”.

Error: Missing required field “updated”.

Error: Missing required hCard “author”.

It took me ages to fix them all but now that I have I want to share it with all the other Flexsqueeze owners who may be having problems with their rich snippets.

How To Fix Rich Snippets On Flexsqueeze

In the WordPress Dashboard go to Appearance and then click on editor at the bottom of the selection. The first file we want to edit is the Single Post (single.php). Find the following bit of code….

<h1><?php the_title(); ?></h1>
				<?php if (get_option('flex_metadata_show') == "yes") { ?>
				<div class="postMeta">
					<div class="postdate">
						<?php the_time('l, F jS, Y') ?>
						at
						<?php the_time() ?>
						&nbsp;
						<?php edit_post_link('Edit'); ?>
					</div>

 

We need to change that to;

<h1 class="title single-title entry-title"><?php the_title(); ?></h1>
				<?php if (get_option('flex_metadata_show') == "yes") { ?>
				<div class="postMeta">
					<div class="postdate date updated">
						<?php the_time('l, F jS, Y') ?>
						at
						<?php the_time() ?>
 by
<span class="vcard author"><span class="fn"><?php the_author(); ?></span></span>
						&nbsp;
						<?php edit_post_link('Edit'); ?>
					</div>

We will also need resolve this issue in the by fixing the Archives (archive.php).We need to change the following code. 

<h2><a title="Permanent Link to <?php the_title(); ?>" href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2>
				<div class="postMeta">
        <?php if (get_option('flex_metadata_show') == "yes") { ?>
          <div class="postdate">
            <?php the_time('l, F jS, Y') ?>
            at
            <?php the_time() ?>
            &nbsp;
            <?php edit_post_link('Edit'); ?>
          </div>

so it looks like the following.

<h2><a title="Permanent Link to <?php the_title(); ?>" href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark" class="title single-title entry-title"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2>
				<div class="postMeta">
        <?php if (get_option('flex_metadata_show') == "yes") { ?>
          <div class="postdate date updated">
            <?php the_time('l, F jS, Y') ?>
            at
            <?php the_time() ?>
 by
<span class="vcard author"><span class="fn"><?php the_author(); ?></span></span>
            &nbsp;
            <?php edit_post_link('Edit'); ?>
          </div> 

Finally we have to change the code that’s found in the Main Index Template (index.php)

<h2><a title="Permanent Link to <?php the_title(); ?>" href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2>
        
        <div class="postMeta">
        <?php if (get_option('flex_metadata_show') == "yes") { ?>
          <div class="postdate">
            <?php the_time('l, F jS, Y') ?>
            at
            <?php the_time() ?>
            &nbsp;
            <?php edit_post_link('Edit'); ?>
          </div>

We need to adjust that bit of code so that it looks like this.

<h2><a title="Permanent Link to <?php the_title(); ?>" href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark" class="title single-title entry-title"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2>
        <div class="postMeta">
        <?php if (get_option('flex_metadata_show') == "yes") { ?>
          <div class="postdate date updated">
            <?php the_time('l, F jS, Y') ?>
            at
            <?php the_time() ?>
 by
<span class="vcard author"><span class="fn"><?php the_author(); ?></span></span>
            &nbsp;
            <?php edit_post_link('Edit'); ?>
          </div>

 

I’ve actually produced a video which you can see below. This video shows step by step how to edit each file so that you also can become rich snippet compliant. It’s also kind of nice to see your photo in the search engines. Naturally all of this will be in vain unless you have a Google + profile. The following link will show you what Google requires from you.
