47 Advanced Techniques Adding Images and Media Adding media such as images, videos, or sound files to a page or blog post is often called embedding. To embed an image, video, or sound file that you have uploaded to the media library, make sure your cursor is positioned in the text editor where you would like to embed the media and then click on the Add Media button above the text editor. This will bring up the Insert Media dialog box. From here, you can insert one or more media elements into your post or page. You can also create a gallery of images by clicking Create Gallery on the left-hand side of the dialog box. Many media types, such as YouTube or Vimeo videos and SoundCloud sound files, can be embedded without uploading them to the media library. Simply add a link to the file on its own line in the text editor and WordPress will do the rest. For a more information about embedding files from thirdparty providers, read these articles on WordPress ( codex.wordpress.org/embeds) and Jetpack ( support/shortcode-embeds/) embeds. User Guide Advanced Techniques Page 44

48 Advanced Techniques Featured Images In addition to adding an image within your post or page in the text editor, you can also add a Featured Image. All themes support featured images on blog posts; depending on your theme, you may also be able to add a featured image on pages. Featured images are also used for the headshot photos on staff member profiles. Adding a featured image for each blog post can be a great way to add visual interest to your blog in a consistent and unified way. If you decide to do this, you should generally crop all of your featured images to the same size; rectangular images at least 600 pixels wide work best. To add a featured image to a post or page, simply click the Set featured image link to the right of the screen and upload an image or choose one from your media library. User Guide Advanced Techniques Page 45

49 Advanced Techniques The More Tag When you add a blog post, by default the entire post is shown on the blog page. For a short post this may be desirable, but for a longer post this can cause your blog page to become very long. A better technique is to insert what is called the more tag, which creates a continue reading link on the blog page. To insert a more tag, position your cursor in the text editor where you would like to add the tag, and then click on the Insert More Tag button. User Guide Advanced Techniques Page 46

50 Advanced Techniques Scheduled Posts WordPress has the ability to schedule blog posts for a future date and time. This is particularly useful if you have timesensitive news that you would like to announce at a time when you cannot be at your computer. Simply write the blog post as you normally would. Before you click Publish, click on the Edit link beside Publish immediately in the box above the Publish button. Set the appropriate date and time and click OK. You will notice that the Publish button is now labeled Schedule. Click on Schedule and your post will be published at the time specified. User Guide Advanced Techniques Page 47

51 Advanced Techniques Shortcodes As we mentioned earlier, WordPress uses text within square brackets, called shortcodes, to include other types of content or to add additional functionality. Advanced users can add additional shortcodes to their posts or pages in order to insert specific content automatically. By clicking on the Add a shortcode button in the text editor, you can easily insert an Avvo Badge, Avvo Answers syndication, Avvo Legal Guides syndication, Contact Information for one of your addresses, an Embedded Map for one of your addresses, a list of all Child Pages of a given page, a list of all of your Testimonials, your website s Site Map, and Icons from the Font Awesome icon set ( User Guide Advanced Techniques Page 48

52 Advanced Techniques SEO: Search Engine Optimization Moz, a leader in SEO education, describes SEO as the practice of improving and promoting a web site in order to increase the number of visitors the site receives from search engines. SEO is a complex and ever-changing field, but getting a solid grasp of the basics is relatively easy. If you re an SEO beginner (or if it might be time for a refresher), we encourage you to read Moz s Beginners Guide to SEO ( and to check out posts related to SEO on our Lawyernomics blog ( Avvo Websites follow all basic SEO best practices, so right from the start you re set up so that search engines can easily crawl your site and understand its contents. Our sites use the WordPress SEO by Yoast plugin, which makes it easy to perform common SEO tasks such as editing the SEO Titles and Meta Descriptions of pages and posts. To edit SEO Titles and Meta Descriptions, find the WordPress SEO by Yoast box when you are editing a page, post, case, or staff member. If you do not see the box, check the Screen Options to make sure that the box labeled WordPress SEO by Yoast is checked. When you are done making changes, don t forget to click the Update button to save your changes. User Guide Advanced Techniques Page 49

53 Advanced Techniques Sharing Sharing your blog posts on your social media profiles is a great way to generate traffic to your website and interest in your law practice. If you blog frequently, sharing each of your posts on each of your profiles can be a bit tedious. Luckily, your Avvo Website can share your blog posts on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, Tumblr, and Path automatically! To set up automatic sharing, hover over Settings in the lefthand menu of your website dashboard and click Sharing. Click Connect beside the service you would like to set up and follow the instructions. You can choose whether the connection should be available to just you, or to share the connection with other users on your website. When writing a new blog post, you will see all of the services that the post will be shared with in the Publish box on the right-hand side of the screen. You can edit which services you would like to use for that post and include a custom message as well. User Guide Advanced Techniques Page 50

54 Advanced Techniques Google+ Authorship Setting up Google+ Authorship on your website can help encourage people to click on links to your site that appear in search engine results. When you have authorship set up correctly, Google may choose to display a small headshot photo next to your website on the search results page. To ensure that you have Google+ Authorship set up correctly, you will need to have a Google+ personal profile (not a business profile) with a high-quality profile photo that shows your face. Once you have your Google+ personal profile set up, make sure that there is a link to it on your WordPress user profile page by clicking on Profile in the left-hand menu of your WordPress dashboard. Add the link to the box labeled Google+. You also need to make sure that there is a link to your Avvo Website in the Contributor to section of your Google+ personal profile. You can add this automatically from your website dashboard. Hover over Settings in the left-hand menu and click Sharing, then click the Sign in link under Google+ Profile and follow the instructions on the screen. User Guide Advanced Techniques Page 51
