Learning how to phrase your search terms is important. Alot that I have learned in the last 13 years in business is though just searching. I joke that I got a degree from Google.
I’ve gotten pretty good at it, but still I was surprised that I couldn’t find what I was looking for recently.
This last month I was working with a client that had a “Disclaimer” that was two paragraphs in length and was needed to have posted on 4 different program sales pages. I found a couple grammatical errors later but didn’t want to have to go to each page to update them.
So I Googled this:
None of the results were what I was looking for. So I left the tab open as a reminder to research it more later.
A few weeks later I was doing some more updates and realize that I REALLY could use this functionality. So I tried again.
This time, without looking at what I typed last time, I tried this:
All the results were much closer to what I needed with the first one being the plugin “Post Snippets” was exactly what I needed!
I’m excited about how I can use this plugin on my own sites and more clients in the future!
(The second one could be too but it hasn’t been updated in over 2 years so don’t want to use that one.)
It’s amazing the difference adding the words “shortcode” and removing “linked in pages” made.
I used basically the same words!
“wordpress have snippet of text that is linked in pages”
“wordpress shortcode for snippet of text”
So this is a great example of taking time and using lots of different words when searching Google.
