In this highly optimized episode of WordPress Weekly, I interviewed Michael Torbert who is more commonly known as hallsofmontezuma throughout the WordPress community. He is now the developer of the most popular plugin in the plugin repository, theAll In One SEO pack. We discuss what it’s like to maintain an insanely popular plugin, how difficult it has been to work with the WordPress code, thoughts on SEO in general, and the question of the night went to David Peralty for asking if SEO could be damaged by mis configuring the plugin. You’ll have to listen to the show to get the answer. On top of that, I give my plugin pick of the week, the WordPress job of the week and much more on episode 24 of WordPress weekly.

PhoneBlogz – blog by phone

PhoneBlogz – blog by phone: An interesting concept and it seems to qork quite well. You call in your phone message and an MP3 is created with a flash player attached that can then be posted to your WordPress or Serendipity blogs. The free service is for 20 seconds with ads but their paid service is a little dissappointing. They only offer a maximum of 6 minutes for $9.99 per month. For would be podcasters, this might not be the solution though I can see keeping a voice journal being interesting a few years down the road.
