Alan’s phpBay Search-2-Post Plugin
The phpbay search to post plugin is something that Melissa Eaton mentioned in a blog post she made recently and it was then that I found out about it. After reading about the plugin I was amazed at how powerful a tool it could be, so I went ahead and purchased it for $15 from Alan Lewis at 1am UK time and the plugin was with me in less than 2 hours. I installed it onto a new site which I am using to cover the phpbay e commerce style site build over the next few weeks, I experienced a few problems un-related to the plugin which Alan was extremely helpful in resolving with me, regardless of the fact the issues were nothing to do with the plugin itself but more to do with my permalink structure. I have to be honest when I say that I absolutely love this plugin.
So what does he plugin do?
The search to post plugin is designed to replace the default search function that you already may be using on your phpbay site. It basically works as a widget, you install it, activate it, configure it and away you go, you get fresh new content every time a visitor conducts a search on your site. The content is generated in the form of a post or page (you choose) with a page title, page content above the listings which is randomly generated with the use of the plugins randomizer engine tag system and a page of eBay listings matching the users search.
So what are the benefits?
I think the main question is what aren't the benefits? The plugin is brilliant in every way. The main benefits are:
- Constant fresh new content being added to your site automatically when a visitor searches, if you use All-in-One-SEO then meta description, keywords and title are auto generated for you.
- Usually your visitors will search for things related to your niche. So the new posts or pages are mainly content relevant to your site.
- The keywords that your visitors enter into your search are things that they are actually specifically looking for. You never know you may even uncover a better/another niche.
- Each page or post that is created is automatically pinged.
You can see the plugin in action if you visit the following site www.bestpricebeads.com and look at the 'Most Recent Posts' section & the links within it on the right hand side of the site.
Configuring the plugin is quite easy and it comes with a full installation/instruction manual along with the support of Alan via email should you need it.
