Contact Form 7 is the ONLY contact form that I’ll use.
There are SO MANY contact form plugins to choose from. What I like about this one is that its so simple to use and has cool customize options.
It can also manage multiple contact forms, which is a PLUS!
Comment Luv is a great tool that gives the ability for readers to easily make comments at the end of your blog post.
It’s really the BEST comment plugin I’ve seen.
What I love: If a fellow blogger leaves a comment in one of my posts, I can navigate to Comments and see their latest blog post to return the comment love.
Too cool! If you upgrade, there are traffic, keyword, social media, spam and more support tools available. Highly recommended.
Click to Tweet is a Twitter link generator. Enter some simple code into your blog post wherever you’d like. Readers can click the Tweet link and post your tweet on Twitter.
A great way to integrate Twitter into your blog. I’ve been seeing this plugin all over the place and finally added it to my blog. You will love it! Here’s a look at what it looks like in the post:
SumoMe will help your site grow. They have so many tools available, broken into these categories:
The sharing tools are my favorite.
If you’ve visited a blog and have seen the vertical social media bar on the left of the web page, it was likely SumoMe.
You can customize that bar to add your favorite social media sharing tools: Facebook, Pinterest, Stumbleupon, Digg, Reddit, Delicious, and many many more.
Other favorite features include Welcome Mat, Heatmaps, and Discover. You must check this one out. Super highly recommended.
Simple Author Box adds a responsive author box at the end of your post. You can add your name, blog description, social media, and more. It adds a professional touch to blog posts.
Alt tags are IMPORTANT! Here’s why:
It’s crucial that you add alt tags to your images because they describe your image or post. For example, if a reader is searching for ways to grow blog traffic with social media, the search engine will pull up relevant information including images, that match the search description.
By naming your image appropriately, you are creating a more SEO-friendly blog. Make sense? If you can tell, i’m notto o techy at all. Here is a more thorough explanation.
Design super simple to use landing pages and forms, create automations, rules, and more. It’s very user-friendly and a big ASSET for your blog.
I have seen WP Super Cache on so many Top 10 lists and for good reason. In a nutshell, it’s fast caching. You might have heard the term “clean your cache out” for your computer or tablet.
This is the same thing, but for your blog. Really awesome plugin.
If you want to increase your page load speed then this is the plugin for you. I was able to instantly see a change in site speed after activating this plugin.
Very easy to implement on your blog.
