Using Tags

The use of tags was quite prevalent on the previous GDM site using the Vanilla Forums platform. We will continue to use tags in the new WordPress system. Please use it like a rapid Transit System that filters your search results to a granular level. Tags are visible on the full review article or on the review summary box for each article from the main page 4-column or 5-column grid.

Adding Likes, Ratings and Comments

All three functions are available to use on any album review.

a) The ‘Like’ object is at the top of every review. It is a heart shaped icon. Clicking it will enable it and change the icon to purple/red colour.

b) The five star rating is shown towards the bottom of the review. You need to click it once after selecting the amount of stars and then click it a second time to embed it.

c) Posting comments is available right at the footer of the review page, this should be fairly self-explanatory I would think.

SEO Ranking Score

In our review articles, you’ll see a green button with a number in it, like 84, 85 etc. These are Search Engine Optimization ranking scores out of 100. They are not our album ratings, which are indicated by the 5-star click system.

The SEO ranking tells us that we have optimized the written article in line with 30-40 different metrics as proposed by SEO authority RANK MATH. The higher the score, the more likely we’ll be found in search engines.

Anything higher than 70/100 is good. Our average is about 83.

Copy Protection

Over the years we’ve seen numerous people steal GDM content for uncredited use on their websites or YouTube channel. They cite fair use policy, but are in fact benefitting financially from other people’s work. We’ve put a stop to that by incorporating copy protection protocols to lock down right-click cut/paste and also web scraping, the latter is downright theft if you ask me. Therefore, text and image copying are prevented, even I as Admin can’t copy/paste from the browser.

Private Messaging

Something I forgot about from the old site was the use of Private Messages among users. There is a menu option for this, or click the blue bubble icon in the bottom right corner to go to the messaging window. You’ll be alerted via an email to your registered email address when someone sends you a message.
