Cleaning out WordPress Categories


I have been trying to organize my categories in WordPress a little better so that you can find things easier and so I have less trouble trying to figure out which ones to use when I write new posts.

I originally started using my name (Jason Stone) as a category, thinking that it would help me rank higher for my name. At first, it worked. I used to be on the first page when you would type “Jason Stone”. I think Google’s filter decided it didn’t like that idea because my rank dropped to 99. The other categories I deleted were:

  • Web Server
  • Hot
  • Funny
  • Blogging

If you have trouble trying to find something, try looking in “Cluttered Thoughts
I Added the “Cluttered Thoughts” for when I am in a hurry or if I post some random stuff that doesn’t relate to my main topics. I have also added the “Coding” category to organize articles that contain full scripts or source code snippets in any coding language that I end up needing to use (examples: ASP, PHP, HTML, etc…)

I moved the Databases Category from:
Root > Computer > Software > Databases
to:
Root > Databases

(This is the new location for “Databases“)

I moved the PHP category from:
Root > Computer > Software > PHP
to:
Root > Coding > PHP

(This is the new location for “PHP“)
