Hosted Affiliate Guides

SidagoAs part of my employee hiring process for Sidago Outsourcing, I build up trust with new members by slowly reviewing work quality, affordability and reliability.  I assign new employees “low risk” tasks that can be used to learn without costing me a client or important deadline. I use RyanEagle.com as the task testing ground because it doesn’t matter if something breaks and I get all these random features I’ve always wanted but never had time.

One of those test-tasks was to locate, remake and host all of my published affiliate guides in my archives section. The guides are original, unedited and in some cases not relevant in today’s game – but there are some solid gems. First Read Legal Disclosure:

RyanEagle.com Main Page Ask.fm Feed

I wanted to get my Ryan Eagle Ask.fm RSS feed integrated on the RyanEagle.com main page since I started using it more. Today one of my new developers created a quick WordPress Plugin and integrated it on my site main homepage alongside the Instagram, Facebook and Twitter feeds. The plugin is also setup in a way that generates WordPress posts for each question – essentially creating an archive. I plan on releasing an AMA (Ask Me Anything) section in the near future where people can both ask questions & see the full history of categorized questions (into business, funny, favorites, hater, advice, etc).

As part of the “testing process” for hiring new developers at Sidago Integrated Solutions, I have them work on small tasks that have no real risk if they get messed up. I use my RyanEagle.com as a ‘training ground’ for the new developers so we can test their quality and teamwork (I apologize in advance when you visit here and things are randomly broken). The next social feeds test projects new developers working on is a WordPress RSS Blog Feed (for my main posts & short posts), a Tumblr feed (for my ramblings). and finally a Google+ feed (to motivate me to actually use my Ryan Eagle Google+).

RyanEagle.com Sitemap Created

The RyanEagle.com custom WordPress content management system utilizes a mixture of multiple different page formats, galleries, post formats, and category formats combined with a bunch of plugins. Because of the way my custom WordPress website was programmed it was extremely difficult to find all the content on the site, even for me. Compound this onto the fact that there is the Blog (blog.ryaneagle.com) and the archives (archives.ryaneagle.com). After spending time learning WordPress as a hobby and sorting through all the pages – I’ve created a complete HTML Sitemap including all the sections of the site and their assorted subcategories.
