While using Wordpress, I come across some nifty plugins, and I always think to myself, I wish I included that one in my Top 10 Wordpress Plugins post. So I decided to make a follow-up. Here are 10 more awesome Wordpress plugins.
This has got to be my new favorite plugin. It is basically spell check on steroids. When you are done writing, hit the button, and it analyzes your text. It catches a lot! I wouldn’t write another blog post without this little baby.
This plugin is the only reason anyone comments on my blog Maybe this is a half truth, but whatever, it helped build a little community and helped me get to know other bloggers. I am all for it! If you don’t know what it is, while commenting it searches the commentators blog and finds their most recent posts. Then after they post it displays the recent post under their comment.
This plugin does exactly what you think it would. When someone replies to a users comment, it emails them notifying them. I personally love when I comment on a blog and get this email. I comment on a lot of blogs and it is hard for me to go back and check if someone replied. Try this plugin out if you haven’t heard of it!
This plugin puts the awesome box below underneath your post editing screen. From that little box, you can search all over the web, including images, videos, Wikipedia, Google, Google News, Google Blogs, a book search, and best of all search through your own blog (which makes it really easy to interlink).
I can’t believe I didn’t put this in my first version! I had to look back to make sure it wasn’t there. Wordpress stats is like Google analytics except only the information a blogger would be interested in. It tracks page views, referring sites, what people click to exit your site, and search terms that got people to your site. It is great to have, but becomes addicting to look at.
Hey, you got to love your commentators. This widget gives your best commentators a dofollow link to their site. Just another way to facilitate commenting. Personally, I like to comment on blogs with this plugin more often, i don’t know maybe it is just me
Give you a simple widget where you can display your most popular posts. It is very easy to customize, I was even able to put thumbnails next to the posts with a little bit of coding. It really boosts page views, check it out!
Scroll down a little bit and you can see just how sexy those bookmarks are! These work pretty well because the headline right before them, it must catch peoples attention a little bit. Also these have almost become the standard, so people recognize these if they are looking to socially bookmark your page.
10. Organize Series
This is a little known plugin that helps you create series of posts. It actually adds a new taxonomy (like category and tags) called series. It then links all the posts of the series together and provides easy navigation between them. It has way more features than this, but they don’t all work with the Thesis Theme.
Anyways, that is my second Top 10 Wordpress Plugins List. Got any better ones?
