This week the WPBeginner team was at 附属峰会东部 in Philadelphia. While there, we had the opportunity to view a number of fantastic sessions. One such focus was on creating authority blogs and a passive monthly income. This was a panel presentation moderated by our own 赛义德巴尔基. The three panelists, 周约翰, 扎克·约翰逊, and 约翰·兰普顿 shared their experiences and takeaways from their combined 30+ year of experience.
Despite the long hours, the panel reported spending little time on the actual day to day operations of their site, thanks in large part of automating time consuming processes through 受邀来宾帖子 and 广告管理插件.
