Anyone ever use WP Auctions on their site?

@JasonV - I'm a fan of WordFence. I have it installed on all my WordPress websites. :)

Ricardo.

I've only used the free version of SurveyMonkey - most of my surveys require a Yes or No, 'choose one of the above', etc., and it works great! 

Comment by Alan West on November 10, 2014 at 2:00pm

Ricardo, I'm a big fan of SurveyMonkey as its primary function is surveying.  It's easy to build surveys with and its metrics tools can't be beat.  The paid version gives you so much more but it's worth the money in my opinion.

Good article on some Wordpress safety measures:http://codex.wordpress.org/Brute_Force_Attacks

I've also added wordfence plugin and it's been finding lots of brute-force attempts with 'admin' login. I don't have accounts called "admin", and I'm glad that I don't!

QUESTION: Which is better for Surveying? Google Forms or Survey Monkey?

Andrea,

Thanks for the article on website backup. I appreciate that.

Chris Wensink, check out wpmudev.org. I think their buddypress and membership tools might be what you are looking for.

Douglas Bartholomew, short answer. Yes use these signups for your newsletter.

Long answer: You can also disable signups completely or add captcha. You can also integrate the site so that when people signup they also get added to a newsletter automatically or get updates on your podcasts. 

Another tip, you also have comments enabled on almost every page which tends to lead to more spam comments and registrations. 

You may also ask yourself "Why do I have a website?" Are you selling your podcast, a product, a membership, a class, are you an affiliate, do you want to promote something... You have a very cool topic but I'm not sure what I am supposed to do on your site. Think about each page as a way to lead your viewer to where you want them to go. 

P.S. A common spam post is "I just would like to give you a big thumbs up for your excellent information you have here on this post. I’ll be returning to your web site for more soon." I see this on many sites. If you get this just delete it. 

P.P.S I might just signup myself since my bucket tomato garden only lasted about 2 weeks

Pastor Michael Jannett, Not sure what your budget is. If you want a rock-solid but expensive platform you could use Infusionsoft. They will customize everything for you and even help set up marketing campaigns, mailers, forms on your site ect... A less expensive/almost free option is to sign up for MailChimp (free) and then if your theme does not already support MailChimp integration get the MailChimp Social Wordpress plugin (less than $10). A totally free plugin that works well but requires a bit more work is Subscribe2. 

Hope that helps!
