Why “Click Here” is A Bad Practice

Using “click here” as anchor text is considered a bad practice because it doesn’t tell the user what the link will direct them to by itself, without users having to read the surrounding text; because “clicking” is irrelevant in many situations (assistive devices, smartphones, etc); and because it is meaningless to search engines indexing the page.

Scaling WordPress Installations

TJ Stein gave a really good presentation at WordCamp Chicago 2011 about scaling and performance issues with WordPress installations.
