How to Anonymize your WordPress site and theme….

It's a bit neefy

Ok, so you’ve got a theme going, right? At the bottom it says something like this:
Copyright 2015; SomeStupidTheme.com * WordPress.com …etc…it’s YOUR Web site, why should anyone else get to brand it? It makes you seem amateurish to webdevs and potential clients, or a client that HAS one will say:

“This site sucks, it actually SAYS WordPress at the bottom.”

…if you have a legit site like this one, there is absolutely no reason to have this self-congratulating backlinking crud on the site that YOU PAY FOR, CREATE ALL THE CONTENT AND DO ALL THE DESIGN…

    ***Delete it safely with this example***

  • Goto Appearance >> Editor
  • Open footer.php (it is almost assuredly called this)
  • Make a backup of it locally, if you f-up the PHP, your site’ll crash
  • If it does, just ftp in the backdoor and swap out footer.php w/ the orig. copy
  • Delete the PHP that’s spitting out the Stupid.com*WP.com/.org junk
  • Update file
  • Visit Site (Test it!)
  • Laugh <—–CRITICAL!
  • Enjoy YOUR site: YOU.com, not YOU.com “Powered by WordPress”- that’s lame

Some themes automatically anonymize the WP stinger. My previous theme was called “Big City” at the bottom of any pg. it said Copyright 2014, Tapper7.com, then a logo of a cube (like the Netbeans logo). It was a 2013-theme and had past my patience with how poorly formatted all my images and embedded content had deprecated to, so I flushed it and started it back up….
– New Year – NEW/Stripped-down THEME, NEW CSS- the stylesheet is a WIP. 
If you simply follow the logic of the script, find the part of the script that is yanking out the junk you don’t want, be careful not to accidently delete the things you DO WANT and delete it! For instance, my footer.php file spits out an advert, a list of other pages I have and a calender. IT USED TO have a footer to the footer, that said:
By AnnoyingSelfAggrandizingBacklinkingBS.com * WordPress.org/com(somethinglikethat).
….NOT ANYMORE!! Lulz.
For this particular theme, I began by ignoring the warning to NOT MODIFY ANY PHP.
First off PHP is not even a programming language, it is a script that is easy to read and object-oriented so the code-writer is trying to scare you into thinking he is so much smarter than you, that if you touch his precious PHP, your site will explode. This is actually true if you make a mistake at this, again…backup whatever files you intend to change on your hard drive. Learn how to FTP into your site and FIX IT YOURSELF if it crashes. The only other option is to pay someone to do it for you, but Tapper7.com is always of the opinion that you should never pay for something you can do/make yourself or learn how easily. Information is free.

I started by trying to “Comment Out” the offending PHP, which looked appx like this:
***Note all “<>” are replaced with “[]” so the site does not get confused about what’s real code and what isn’t… the code markup tag does not seem to be entirely functional at present. *sigh* MORE PROBLEMS, regardless:

/* Comment OUT:
[footer class="site-info" itemtype="http://......./WPFooter" itemscope="itemscope" role="contentinfo"] [div class="inside-site-info grid-container grid-parent"] [?php do_action( 'generate_credits' ); ?] [/div] [/footer]
[?php do_action( 'generate_after_footer_content' ); ?] End Comment Out-->*/

I’d forgotten that commenting out HTML (when combined with PHP) merely adds a visible “//” or “/**/” to the offending crud I’m trying to eliminate. Yeechhhhhhh!!
Look at the above code. All I had to do was DELETE what you see above. Update the file (which will quickly recompile your site) and “Visit” it for QA …and Kakooooooosh….bye bye offending crud that does not belong on YourWebSite.com.
This is my site and I decide what goes on it, not ANYONE ELSE. PERIOD.
My advice is that you take the same pride in your work and anonymize all that footer-junk. You do all the work. YOU take all the credit. Feel free to contact me if something annoying is stuck on your site and you cannot figure out how to safely dispose of it. Btw, if you have NOT crashed your site by making a PHP syntax mistake, I recommend that you learn how to get it back online if you or some jerk who works for you DOES. If you have a business – knowing how to do this “your own damn self” and not worrying or waiting on some IT loser to call you back or show up or fix it for you …is INVALUABLE. I’ll provide an FTP tutorial at a later date and screenshots if there is interest in this particular how-to.

Now forget that my site is WP, ok…? Wink-wink, dear reader! Tapper7.com…powered by Tapper…and OCD. NOTHING ELSE. My partner in interwebz content shenanigans, Kevin Gamin also reports the useful consistency and w3c compliance of WordPress. SEO is mostly scam bulls—…anyone claiming to “know how the GS algorithm works” and promising traffic/hits/growth and improved Google Search scores is LYING. We have a reverse-engineered framework for HOW/WHAT & WHY when it comes to propping up your “Google Score” but current employees legally cannot disclose src for BigData – duh! Fmr. emplyees sign the standarn non-disclosure agreement; which is in itself OBS because the GS algorithmm is updated constantly. WordPress really does provide LEGIT “SEO” (*sigh* I despise the acronym and the consters it attracts) – simply by creating original content, organized on a Google and w3-compliant design. WordPress sites do in fact grow naturally. Luck would have it GS (as it stand today) “likes it”

Ex: you are a gardener – buy www.imagardener.— and start blogging about your garden. Keep it up and soon your site will start appearing on pg 1 of a GS return for strings like “rose gardens” , “clippings” , “fertilizer” …u get the idea. If you’re like me and want to career++; legitimacy++; then WP is the way to go, writing about what you love is the simple key to a big-time GSR presence. Then comes readers, fans, contacts, sponsorships, support, contract jobs and after six months of professional care and diligent/RICH content – Google MIGHT legitimize your site by approving an Adsense Partnership (That is; if they are still accepting new affiliates–when I applied, I was told that they were not approving ANYONE and that a massive audit of me, my background, my credentials, my media ethics and media-law scruples would be thoroughly audited by a mysterious algorithm AND at least one human auditor. All Google Forums on Adsense overload with “Why won’t they approve me?” I was told the audit would take three weeks. Three DAYS later, they congratulated me and accepted me into their evil cabal.

I credit strict media ethics, the original content I provide, w3 and IEEE std compliance, working-prof-knowledge of Mass Media Law and Evil for my quick “Holy Stamp of Approval” for my fledgling site. I post those carefully partitioned/formatted/self-audited/qa’d ads in a minimalist way that adheres to the SPJ Code of Ethics – it is more about the badge of honor than the meager $ I get. I can show you how to do all this and then some.
Despite my twice upgraded GoogleAnalytics.js accout; I can only rvw data for 90 day periods, but we are popping 100,000 hits every quarter now and my core readrship of 3,000 is loyal and I am humbled and grateful for them most of….also Media Temple who sponsors my creative works by giving me a website with all the bells and whistles; they even gave me the keys to pHpMyadmin AND FTP access so i can deal with backend issues on my own. My cousin and I created a comment-spam killer that took us from 10,000/day to ZERO last September.
Readers – as always – information is free @Tapper7.com – send questions and hate-mail to chris@tapper7.com if you’d like to send your site into orbit. I don’t even have anything for sale; which I’m certain endears me to the blog-reading public; there are no pop-ups, mySQL node is Kittner-Redoubt safe and spammers don’t spam – not no mo’!
My site is just for creative purposes; nothing is for sale. The implication being – if I can create a popular music/art/tech/humor blog in such an unexpectedly successful fashion. I look forward to the next small or mid-size business to sink my teeth into. If it’s exposure, Google rank, Google legitimacy, online reputation and unique digital MKTG —- hit me up. My methodology (Organically-Optimized Marketing) is proven.
As for content; if you think I published a lot this past year; for every 1,000 words posted, there are 10,000 sitting in my docs folder. I’m including rich multimedia into my posts now as well.
OWN your site. WP rocks, but it is just code….YOU build it, YOU market it, YOU deal w/ all the BS. Give credit where it is due as always, but YOUR Web site is brought to the interwebz by YOU, not WordPress.com, not GoDaddy and certainly not the guy who wrote your theme and warned you “not to mess w/ it” …like he’s some code-guru. Repeating myself I know but —CSS and PHP are NOT PROGRAMMING LANGUAGES …these dudes would mess themselves if they had to program in C++ or Java.
To sum – if you are building up a site – for whatver purpose – DO NOT HIRE a “WP Developer” or God-forbid an “SEO-Specialist” SCAM SCAM SCAMMY SCAM SCAM. I’ll help you for free and show you how easy it is so you can do it yourself. The kind words, references, respect and free beer are MORE THAN ENOUGH.

On legitimacy, responsibility and my attempt at both (fully revised)

What makes this Web page legitimate? Should you trust what you read on this site?

NO!!!! Don’t trust any blog site. In general there are common themes in  blogs that are yellow-flags(read but don’t trust), red-flags(main page offers the best product/service EVER at a LOW LOW price, and …blackhat blogs that will attempt to use scripting to take over your computer entirely. If it is a business website they will attempt to strip SSN, Bank routing numbers, credit card numbers, PINS and bleed you dry. There are poorly made attempts at this in the eastern world. There are people who can hack into your BANK (your bank is more more secure than any government agency)…they can still get in.

Don’t even bother…I have everything you need to know if you are seeking approval from Google Adsense, WHY I applied and a primer on responsible ad placement and usage from a professional journalists standpoint who is also brand new to “professional blogging” as opposed to my previous iterations of blogspot.com personal journals I that are still I keep only as archive material to be picked clean for your information and amusement at which time I will index them from the web myself.

There is a metric that gives you a little insight into legitimacy.
tested:
****Tapper7.com rates slightly above average with search engines…it’s how most of you found the site. (thank you for going to page 3, 4 ,5 to find me unless you were looking for “Tapper” or “Tapper7” in which case it will be easier to bookmark it in some way, just take a sharpie and draw it on the drywall.
It has been tested for quality of design and multi-platform functionality by the me obsessively and by several 3rd parties at the client, server and at the reader (user) level. I’m uclear on how to properly state that I’m approved by the Google Adsense program and what it means about me, the site and you. I will try though. I could locate only a handful of requirements offered upon application from the company – and all 3rd party info is shameful attempts to bypass and ruin a system that is certain to become even more exclusive than it was….I should have waited …but im glad I did not, it could easily go on 100% lockdown at anytime now.

If yours is legit—submit it now.

Most blogs are not accepted into this program. They are dedicated to illegal downloads, pirating, compromising online security…..etc. The name and descriptors/categories and other tags do not match the content. Many sites function only as spam-bots. They index every site possible to back link to themselves, appear to have tons of traffic increase their search engine rank and try to scam advertisers or sell a worthless site whose real value is 0 or less than 0. This led to the recent “has verified owner actively posted content for over 6 months?”-TEST.

Malicious sites from China and India are flagged for this, but the rule applies to all domains now.

    Here are some metrics Google used to audit this site:

  • Is documentation avail. proving author-ownership of the site?
  • Is there is easy to contact The Webmaster of Tapper7.com?
  • Is his name, address, email, age verifiable?
  • Does this site meet design standards?
  • Is the content and design w3c compliant?
  • Is the site growing? Does the site meet a minimum standard of audience size?
  • What is the ratio of new vistor/returning visitor?
  • how many pages do they visit?
  • how long do they stay?
  • Is it easy to navigate?
  • Is content structured by category? does content match these categories?
  • Is there a sub-index of tags for quick-access to other subjects in the posts?
  • Is it structured in abstraction layers making it easy to index?
  • Is a standard format used?
  • does the code he used indicate an working knowledge of communications via the Web?
  • Is the author’s really written by the stated author?

All of the above can be verified by a big-ass algorithm and processing power. In the spirit of being honest with my audience, I added a metatag to the site that IDs it as “Mature Content,” I deal with mature themes like violence, murder, rape, drugs, and I have a tendency to veer into jokes that are in poor taste, are offensive, contain racism or misogyny…everyone gets bashed EQUALLY. No one is safe from my jokes or my criticism. It’s all clearly labeled up front in my visible text and embedded so your browser can see it. Parents can set any browser to exclude my site because I tagged it as “Mature”—-Google will not approve “Adult” sites…by that they mean sites that publish pornography.. I didn’t look up any of these rules. I submitted my site for the highest level of validation available on the internet….it was approved by an extremely complex algorithm that everyone else claims to understand. I don’t understand it myself—-> but I can deduce most of what data it vacuums up, how it process the data and the parameters and probability of APPROVED vs. CHANGE & RESUBMIT. I don’t know how long it takes if you aren’t approved on the first try – I believe it is three months. (???) The probability of a random blog being approved is <1% or maybe zero. A completely legit site …probably better than mine in every way..will not violate the written rules, but nobody has the real algorithm – if they did it would be OBS w/in a week

Ethically I have a duty to tell you that I’ve enabled Google to post advertisements on this page and others. I clearly label every section that I allocated ad space to per SPJ code of ethics. ads are allegedly targeted to the demographics of what I post and who reads it. Most readers are educated, lower-middle to upper class, open-minded, interested in technology, always learning, tolerant and intelligent….w/o those qualities you wouldn’t “get” this site. 3rd parties I’ve allowed to post ads are carefully screened by Google…are they as legitimate? SHIT – BEATS ME! They are safe though. to be on my site…some of the pages load a tad slower, ill be ill be working on that to improve the experience for everyone associated with Taaper7.com.

In addition to class, readers predominately reside in LA/OC, the Bay Area, Chicago and New York. Without specifying company names-  I noted a specific brand of a major American car company, a high-technology certification program located where many of you live, a brand new high-end-mobile phone, an expensdive men’s clothing line, a post-graduate software engineering certification, a master’s degree Accounting program and an MBA program.  It confirms what I had always assumed was true of MOST readers. My target demographic.

Prepare yourself dear reader…

Why do you read my site? Why is your iPhone setup to push-notify whenever this site updates?…I know why. Most of you are highly educated, intelligent, open minded and appreciate quality artwork and you like my writing style. To that I am eternally grateful. I am very surprised and appreciative of the way this site has grown. We welcome new visitors from Indonesia, India, Greece and the consistent flow and growth from the americas, Japan and Europe. It has NOT attracted a single hit from the continent of africa, which is fine cuz you fuckers from Nigeria bomb the fuck out of my gmail, you are NOT WELCOME HERE, but I will keep spamming the shit out of you everytime you hit me with that retarded bank account scam. Everyone has seen The Ambassador on Netflix, you scandalous motherfuckers. I used to be able to fry a motherboard over an intranet. if I ever figure out a way to do it over the internet I’m coming after motherboards in Nigeria and The Central African Republic straight up. You don’t deserve comm technology with few exceptions, you use it to scam rob and fuck with each other and the rest of the world. If I could hit the entire continent with an EMP that would take every single machine offline pending lengthy and extensive repair I’d do it in one second despite the collateral damage.

You know who pisses me off more? You spam comment retards who try to sell your SEO that no one wants and/or your blog that no one reads. People actually DO read this site…I love my readership so you spammers I’m declaring war on this web hit fishing comment scam. I post for my readers and you waste about 10 percent of my time on here going thru and deleting your bullshit so now your fucking with my readers AND the site and the content. Dont be surprised if your “kind and thoughtful” fucking scandalous transparent “compliment” looks different on the site … I mean one was just trying to get me to plug his SEO, but for some reason he posted something horrifyingly racist. There’s another SEO spammer who is a kid-toucher idk why he keeps telling ME that…but I may approve one of his comments so you can see how sick he is. I’m also approving some of them so I can reply to the shitheads I want to publicly call out.

ACTUAL READER: the comment section is going to get worse b4 it gets better. Idk how a laptop could give its user AIDS but I wished it and other STDs on a few of them. I allowed a woman to plug her (likely) porn site but in my reply I called it fatbitch.com. We will push the limits of the english language when we attack spammers so fair warning the comment section is now NSFW, will contain racist comments, misogyny, sexually offensive and or disgusting language etc. Anything I can think to offend them. the only thing I wont do is go to their site.

I recommend that you not click on the link I will let through to be fair regarding my sick replies. That is what they really want. most of them have 20 readers max. There are 1500 of you and more everyday.  You make me a better writer and encourage my creativity everytime you visit and I got mad love for you. You already know my humor is not for everyone and pushes boundaries of language, taste, etc. (and you like it you sick fuck! many of you are chicks too…good god) anyway I’m going to come up with the worst possible things you can say about another person but also keep it funny and interesting (otherwise what’s the point? Just shit piss fuck suck cock ass tits bitch nigger kike bitch pussy cunt fagget beaner spic cocksucker motherfucker etc and just re-arrange? No if I am able to create the most awful and entertaining insults ever written it will be partly cuz of your support and partly the great comedian-thinkers who came before: Bill Hicks, Carlin, Eddie Murphy, (cant think very far back in time right now so; ) Billy Red Face, Jim Norton, Louis C.K. Bob Levy, Jim Florentine, Joe DeRosa, Amy Schumer and Bob K—..ohhh wait NOT YOU!   RIP Patrice O’neal, we miss you big dog! (you can support the family of the late Patrice O’neal by purchasing his last comedy special, “Elephant in the Room”)
