Having a normal wordpress blog is dull. Having a wordpress blog with accessories will be create an excellent blog. This accessories is what we call PLUGINS. WordPress plugins are very important for any wordpress blog. Without wordpress plugin it is tough to get the best out of your wordpress blog.

I’m going to share some of the wordpress plugins that I used. Some of them I used in this blog while some others I used in my other blogs. For a start here are the first 4 wordpress plugin that is quite critical to be better position in the google engineering search engine. Check it out:

1. Top Commentator Widget

Many bloggers manage to successfully draw traffic to their blog by using this very commanding plugin. It displays the top commentators based on day, week, month or any duration preferred. Some bloggers organize top commentator contest to drive traffic and winners may receive various rewards such as t-shirt, voucher, cash etc. This can be easily organized and you’ll receive a flux of traffic from permanent or unique visitors, hence increasing your blog rank.

2. Ajax Comment Posting

Ajax Comment Posting is capable in allowing visitors to make and publish comment very fast and efficient. In just seconds, the new comment will be published without refreshing the browser or the whole page. It saves time and precious bandwidth. Besides that, if your visitors use slow internet dial up connection, they can see their own comment as soon as publishing them without refreshing the page. It’s really quick.

3. Subscribe To Comment

Let say a visitor needs some clarification about a post in your blog and leaves a question in your comment box. How can we ensure and let the visitor know that his or her question has been answered?

The old fashion way is to bookmark the website or blog at the browser. It needs several clicks to do that. However, when this plugin is activated, a small click box appears under your comment box. If your visitor click this box “Notify me of follow-up comments via e-mail” (shown in the illustration below), whenever somebody answer or response at the comment box, your visitor can automatically received the comment updates via email. It’s very simple yet powerful feature. It makes your visitor being appreciated and come to your blog repeatedly.

4. WordPress.com Stats

This plugin requires you to register with WordPress.com and you’ll be assigned one tracking id called API key. The API key is used to verify your WP stats account and Akismet which is used to fight SPAM. You must use the same API key to activate both plugins. I personally use WP Stat to see and analyzed my visitors. It would not count your own visit and also the search engine bot visit, which means it will only count the actual visitors to your blog. On top of that, it can detect external links that were clicked and also keyword terms for your blog.

Ok, that’s it for now. Wait for my next wordpress plugins discovery… 🙂

    Making capital on the net is always what you want years ago. Whether if it’s web marketing, internet affiliate marketing, running a blog, content, as well as ppc it is far better to begin right now then certainly not.
