Well here are the highlights from the speakers;
Christian Emenike (@ccemenike)
– The percentage of risk can never be 0! your key objective: Minimize risk
– Sometimes locking down your site makes it secure, but it’s hard to use. Sometimes making your site easier to use makes it less secure. You’ll have to find the balance.
– Critics says that “WordPress isn’t secure”. (That’s not necessarily true—it depends on how you set up and use WordPress
– Never in your entire life – should you make user of “admin” as your username.
– For the sake of your future, provide a “strong password” e.g. ~1LuvWpr@ss.C0m will take 500years to crack
Don Caprio (@doncaprio)
– SEO simply means Search Engine Optimization. It is the act of optimizing your site or blog for search engines
– SEO can be divided into two; On-Page SEO and Off-Page SEO
– Link your social profiles to your websites and keep them active.
– Gain backlinks from Q & A websites like Yahoo Answers and Quora
– Avoid internal duplicate content
– Be careful those that link to your website. It almost got me into trouble with Google
– Optimize images by using the correct image name and alt tags
– Write optimized articles with the help of plugins like SEOPressor
Bade Adesemowo – @badesemowo
– It is important to build a community we can fall back on
– We not only need users, we also need developers
– This event is a build up to the WordCamp event to hold later in the year
– We look forward o regular meet ups like this
Special thanks to the speakers Christian Emenike (@ccemenike), Don Caprio (@doncaprio) and Bade Adesemowo (@badesemowo) who made presentations and the participants who were patient and had the job of separating high tech stuff from ‘easy meat’.
While over 80% of WordPress users use if for blogging, there’s the need to understand that the open source platform needs to be made uniquely yours. Having a platform that easily helps you get online and publish your thoughts, images and news it is also important to make the website distinct and safe from the public.
Kindly look forward to more from us and from the committee that indicated interest in organizing the next WordCamp.
