    SEO SearchTerms Tagging 2 Plugin for Wordpress

    It is safe to use? I have heard about problems with Google and penalty? It is right? :confused:

    in that earlier thread I found the article on how to remove the footprint. After looking through it I spotted a major flaw in what the authow was trying to do. Ok, he removed <UL> <li> tags and comments from the plugin but he forgot one very important thing.

    The widget itself has an associated class="widget_popular_terms" in HTML which makes it very easy for google to spot who's using it.

    editing widget.php helps here ;)

    I already done it on my site, it looks just like a bunch of links.. fck u G

    here you go

    http://www49.zippyshare.com/v/9210373/file.html

    find and replace "your_widget_name" with whatever you want your widget to be named. That name will appear in widget class attribute. 5 replacements throughout the code ;)

    I also removed UL and LI tags, links are just in plain text separated by <br />

    Also check your theme's functions.php, you might have something like that there

    PHP:
       if (function_exists('register_sidebar')) {
            
    register_sidebar(array(
                
    'name' => 'Sidebar Widgets',
                
    'id'   => 'sidebar-widgets',
                
    'description'   => 'These are widgets for the sidebar.',
                
    'before_widget' => '<div id="%1$s" class="widget %2$s">',
                
    'after_widget'  => '</div>',
                
    'before_title'  => '<h2>',
                
    'after_title'   => '</h2>'
            
    ));
        }
    if you do have this code, remove " id="%1$s", this will get rid of id="popular-search-terms" in the widget div (another easy plugin guess for google)

    so the code should look like this


    PHP:
       if (function_exists('register_sidebar')) {
            
    register_sidebar(array(
                
    'name' => 'Sidebar Widgets',
                
    'id'   => 'sidebar-widgets',
                
    'description'   => 'These are widgets for the sidebar.',
                
    'before_widget' => '<div class="widget %2$s">',
                
    'after_widget'  => '</div>',
                
    'before_title'  => '<h2>',
                
    'after_title'   => '</h2>'
            
    ));
        }
    enjoy

    I say this as I have been using the plugin on my sites, none of them deindexed yet. Google doesn't hates the plugin itself but the functionality to link to the search pages which gets them indexed due to links pointing to them.

    ba55meister: You seem to know your stuff on this plugin. Do you know who to make it so that this plugin does NOT ad itself to pages, rather posts only?
    I know I can add it manually, but I am hoping there is a way to just remove it from pages all-together.
