In this article, I will discuss how you can choose the best WordPress plugins to improve the performance of your blog.
There are 3 reasons why you need WordPress plugins: 1.
Improve your traffic One of the best WordPress plugins to use is for SEO purposes.
We all know the search engines love blogs.
But to better improve our blog's chances of ranking high in the search engines we need to have SEO plugins.
A SEO plugin improves your SEO by placing the right keywords in your title tags, header tags and so on.
Apart for SEO plugins, there are also social networking tools which can be placed on your blog for the readers to share your post with their friends.
This type of plugin is very quick to implement and can quickly improve your traffic.
One of the best social sharing tools I've seen is to allow the readers to easily tweet your post.
Increase number of comments The more comments you have on your blog, the better impression readers will have of your blog.
If a new visitor arrives on your blog and sees that for each of your posts you have an average of 10 comments or more, they will spend more time reading your posts.
The best WordPress plugins that help you increase the number of comments to your blog consist of: - emailing the commenter to notify them that someone has replied to their comments.
This is very important as it makes the commenter return to your blog and maybe reply.
An additional benefit for this type of plugin is that the person is added to your email list.
- providing the commenter a way to make their website link do follow.
You can do this by having the commenter comment 3 times and automatically have all their future links become do follow.
- allowing the commenter to promote his or her blog in their comments by choosing a recent post from their blog.
All bloggers want promotion and this will increase their motivation to comment on your blog.
Plugins to easier manage your blog You will only need 2 or 3 of these plugins.
Their functions include managing spam, backup the blog and enhancing the writing/editing functions of WordPress.
You can choose the best WordPress plugins for your blog by focusing on these reasons and only using 2 or 3 from each category.
