Today I want to show you my WP Embed plugin. A software I wrote to solve a common problem with other vendors products.
Watch the video below to see why I made this and a demo of how it works.
I origionally got the idea for the WP Emebed plugin when I was writing my review for Omni-Xpress. Omni-Xpress is a web store builder for people who want to do my favorite thing to make money online (selling their own digital product). It was a good software and it even came with several done for you digital products (you can read my full review by clicking here). However there was a bit of a problem with it. The problem was that the stores you build where hosted on their domain. They where in fact sub domains on their hosting.
I have seen a lot of SaaS vendors do this. Page builders, store builders, survey builders, all kinds of online software vendors often have the output of their product hosted on their servers. Now to be fair to them they do this to make it as easy as possible for their customers. So they can say to their customers “no hosting required”.
However often people want things like this on their domain. In this case normally the only solution is to edit your domains DNS settings to point to thier hosting. But this is a pain, requires some tech ability, and also commits the entire domain to that one thing since the entire domain is now pointed at that SaaS Well I figured there must be a better way. There must be an easy way to allow people to pull in the output of other services (such as a store from Omni-Xpress) into their own website.
My first thought was to use an IFRAME, but this would not be very good because Google cant crawl and IFRAME so any SEO value from the content would be lost. My second thought was to use the same tech as my Jack Jacker software. But this to would not be ideal because any link clicks would take the user back to the services domain and break the illusion that its actually hosted on your domain. After some thought I realized the solution was to combine both of these methods into one.
So thats what I did. WP Embed allows you to pull and 3rd party service output / website into your domain without any link clicks breaking the illusion of the hosting actually being on your site yet while still retaining the SEO value, meta tags, Facebook tags etc. from the target website.
If you feel this is something that you can use in your business. Please feel free to click the link below and download it for free with my compliments.
A quick note about the reviews on this site: I am an affiliate for every product I review. The vendors of these products give me them without charge in order for me to test them. However all my reviews are done as honestly as possible and I make no promises to the vendor prior to writing my review. Should you click a link on this site that takes you to a paid product this link will be an affiliate link and I will be paid a percentage of the sales price should you decide to purchase that product.
