Yandex is one of the popular search engines having 65% of market share in Russia. Though the global search engine market share of Yandex is ignorable in front of Google, it is worth submitting your WordPress site to Yandex. Unlike the Chinese search engine Baidu, Yandex offers a webmaster tools account in English with limited features. This helps all international users to submit their site easily to Yandex.

In this article we will explain step by step process of how to add WordPress site in Yandex Webmaster Tools account.

Getting Into Yandex Webmaster Tools Account

The first step is to register an account for Yandex Webmaster Tools. It is mandatory to have a mobile number for registration as the SMS verification code will be sent to your mobile. You can use international mobile numbers with the country code in the font (for example +1 for USA).

Remember the registration is for the complete Yandex sites (similar to Google accounts) and you will get email and other additional features with the same account credentials. Once you have successfully registered an account, login to your Yandex Webmaster Tools account using the same user name and password.

Adding WordPress Site

Verifying Site in Yandex

Similar to all other search engines, you need to verify the ownership of your site in Yandex in order to start using the features. Following are the three options available for verifying the ownership of your WordPress site.

Meta tag – add HTML meta tag on your site which is the easiest way.

HTML file – upload HTML file on the root directory of your site.

DNS record – add TXT record entries in your DNS zone file.

We will explain the easiest meta tag verification in this article. Copy the meta tags shown in the box under the “Meta tag” tab.

Note Yandex offer unique verification code for all the domains and subdomains of a site added. So if you have already added a site, the verification code will remain same.

Adding Yandex Tag in WordPress Site

Basically you can insert the meta tag into the “header.php” file of your WordPress theme. But you need to edit the theme file for this purpose and the changes will be wiped off every time you update your theme to a new version. Otherwise you should use child theme for modifying the core theme files.

Let us not modify the theme file neither use child theme. The easy way is to use one of the SEO plugins to insert the verification code. We recommend you to find a plugin which has Yandex verification option as well as SEO options to combine the tasks.

In our example, let us install and activate Yoast WordPress SEO plugin. Navigate to the dashboard section and add the Yandex verification meta tag under the tab “Webmaster tools” as shown below:

Save your changes.

Verifying Site in Yandex

If you are using server level caching or using caching plugins then remember to purge the cache. Also the CDN servers like Cloudflare needs to be purged for the cache. Otherwise you will see the verification failure message.

Important Note

Yandex search engine bot will crawl your site aggressively. Hence, the server resources will shoot up drastically when used with Google, Baidu and Bing bots. Ensure that you have sufficient server resource or restrict the crawl delay of the Yandex bot in chúng tôi file.

How To Add Recent Posts In WordPress? – Webnots

Content is important for running WordPress blog. However, it is not sufficient to have content without sufficient internal linking on each of your page. The effective way is to manually insert relevant links on the post content and showcase related posts in sidebar or footer area. However, adding a list of recent posts can also be useful in most cases for having a solid internet linking structure. In this article, we will explain various options to insert recent posts in WordPress.

Why to Use Recent Posts?

Here are some of the reasons to insert recent posts in your site:

Adding a list of latest posts in home page help visitors to quickly navigate through your content.

You can insert recent post widget in popular content to promote your latest published articles.

It is also good idea to showcase your latest articles in footer or sidebar area.

Insert Recent Posts in WordPress Site

You have different possibilities in WordPress to showcase your latest posts:

Showcase in widgets area like sidebar or footer using WordPress Recent Posts widget.

Insert in-between post content using Gutenberg Recent Posts block.

Showcase recent posts using third-party plugins.

Let us explain all possibilities in the following sections.

1. Insert Related Posts in Widgets Area

The typical way of using Recent Posts widget in WordPress is to showcase your recent articles in sidebar or footer widget area. You can drag and drop the widget if you are using old Classic Editor and you have a widget block with Gutenberg editor.

Change to Grid or List View and Alignment

Since it is a separate block, it does not have any title. You can add a “Heading” blog to insert a title above the widget and group both blocks to a single block if required.

Add Heading to List

Finally, press the “Update” button to publish your changes. The “Latest Posts” widget will look like below on your site.

Latest Posts Widget in Sidebar

Recent Posts in Classic Editor

The process is same to insert recent posts if you are using Classic Editor. However, the widget name will be different as “Recent Posts” instead of “Latest Posts”.

Recent Posts Widget Inserted

The “Recent Posts” widget will look something like below on your published site.

Recent Posts Widget with Date Using Classic Editor

Note: As you can see, Gutenberg does not provide options to show published date and select the number of posts in the latest posts list. Also, no matter you use Gutenberg or Classic Editor, appearance of the widgets is decided by the theme you use.

2. Insert Latest Posts Widget in Content Area

Though “Recent Posts” with Classic Editor offers additional options, it is not available to insert inside the content area. The only option for you is to use Gutenberg “Latest Posts” widget or go for a third-party plugin.

Insert Latest Posts Block in Content Area

The widget instantly show your recent posts and you can toggle the list or grid view.

Latest Posts Block Options

Customizing Latest Posts Widget Inside Content

Unlike widget block, you can find plenty of options to customize the latest posts widget inside your content. You can find all the available options under “Block” section from the sidebar.

Customization Options Latest Posts Widget

Styles – you have three styles to choose from like default, with dividers or with borders.

Post content settings – you can enable this option and show excerpt with specified length or full post below each title.

Post meta settings – toggle author name and post published date.

Featured image – show or hide featured image for each post. Further you can change the image alignment, link image and select the image size.

Sorting and filtering – select the sorting order, filter based on categories and author. You can also restrict the number of items to appear in the list with desired columns for the grid view.

Advanced – this is a common option available for all Gutenberg block to add custom CSS classes.

Below is an example of the latest posts in list view with custom options:

List View Example

The same widget will appear in the grid view with some modifications like below in two columns:

Grid View Example

Note: WordPress also offers Query Loop and Posts List blocks which are used to create posts page based on categories and tags. However, you can use the block’s filtering options to show single page with certain number of newest posts and create a recent posts widget.

3. Using Third-Party Plugins

Frankly, we do not recommend using third-party plugin for inserting recent posts in WordPress as the default Gutenberg block suffice the purpose. However, there are some additional situations like if you want to include custom post types or include specific pages also in the list. The best option is to install and activate “WP Latest Posts” plugin on your site. This plugin offers large number of options to create a beautiful recent posts block which you can insert anywhere using shortcodes or with a Gutenberg block. Note that you can create multiple blocks for different post types and insert the shortcode in your PHP templates to showcase corresponding articles without mixing categories and post types.

Add New Recent Posts Block

The plugin offers numerous filtering and design options for selecting the content source and theme for your widget. Go through the settings and customize as per your requirements.

Design Your Block

After finishing your setup, save the block to create a shortcode.

Get Block Shortcode

Inserting Recent Posts Block

If you are using Classic Editor, the plugin will add a button with the name “Add Latest Posts” in the interface. For Gutenberg, you can paste the shortcode anywhere inside the content area or use the “WP Latest Posts” block.

Paste Shortcode or Use Block

You will not have any option to customize the widget within the editor as you have already setup everything from the plugin’s settings panel.

Publish your article and see the latest posts block in action like below.

Recent Posts with Plugin

You can also use the shortcode in the widget area or inside your post template to show the widget automatically on all your posts.

Final Words

We recommend using “Latest Posts” block from Gutenberg block editor to create beautiful recent posts widget insider post content area. Though the block do not offer any customization when using in the widget area, most themes use custom CSS to show the widget elegantly. If the default block is not sufficient then you can use the plugin as mentioned above to create recent posts in a carousel view.

Some of the fields like “Options Buttons”, “Checkboxes” and “Dropdown Box” will have additional options as shown in the picture below. You can enter as many as customized options for user selection or choose it from the predefined options list. The predefined options have long list of choices like Comparison, Gender, U.S States, How Long, How Often, Months of the Year, Days of the Week, etc.

Using Option Buttons in Weebly Contact Form

You can also use Weebly iPhone or Android app to view and reply your form entries on the go.

Size of the Weebly form can’t be adjusted by default. In order to change the size, place the “Spacer” elements beside form element and adjust the width of the form.

Reducing Spam Form Submissions

One of the biggest problem with Weebly contact form is the spam submissions – spammers and bots will submit spam entries and flood your mail box. Since Weebly does not offer CAPTCHA for contact form, handling spam submissions will be an annoying task for site owners. There are two ways to reduce the spams without modifying the code:

Add “Checkboxes” on the contact form and make it a required field. You can make the “Field Title” as “I am not a robot” and add one “Options Items” as “I am a human”. This will force users to check the box and the form can’t be submitted without checking it.

Similarly use “Option Buttons” and change the “Field Title” to anything like “CAPTCHA Check” or “Human Check” and make it a required field. Add single option item like “I am a human not a robot” or any text you want. Now the user needs to use choose the option in order to submit the contact form.

Add Manual Captcha in Weebly Contact Form

In both the above options, the automatic bots will fail to choose the checkbox or the option button thus stopping the spam entries.

Finding Contact Form #ID in Weebly

Now go to Weebly editor and add the below CSS code under “Header Code” section of the page on which you have a contact form. Don’t forget to replace the form #id with your own #id.

#form-632853235871630597 { background-color: beige; padding: 15px 15px 0 15px; border-radius: 10px; border: 1px solid rgba(158, 158, 158, 0.22); }
