1. Comment Reply Notification – When a reply is made to a comment the user has left on the blog, an e-mail shall be sent to the user to notify him of the reply. This will allow the users to follow up the comment and expand the conversation if desired. This helps drive more traffic back to your blog and also lets your readers know if someone responds back to their comment.

2. NoFollow Link – NoFollow Link adds a button to the post editor to add nofollow attribute to any links in the post. Select a link in the post and click the No Follow button, the nofollow attribute will be added to the link. This is perfect for all those sponsored posts!


3. Post Admin Word Count – Post Word Count adds a sortable column to the admin’s post manager, displaying the word count for each post.

4. RSS Footer – This plugin makes it easy to add a line of content to the beginning or the end of all the articles in your feeds, for instance to display a link back to your blog. This is completely customizable and you can put a call to action in your posts.

5. SEO Internal Links – SEO Internal Links can automatically link keywords and phrases in your posts and comments with corresponding posts, pages, categories and tags on your blog. In case the plugin finds more of once the same word in a post, it will only change the first one.

6. Tabbed Sidebar – This plugin adds a magic sidebar which you can fill with widgets and a widget that displays the magic sidebar’s contents as tabs.


7. Tabber Widget – Use the Tabber widget to add up to 10 tabbed widget areas in to one existing widget.


8. WP Editorial Calendar – Did you remember to write a post for next Tuesday? What about the Tuesday after that? WordPress doesn’t make it easy to see when your posts are scheduled. The editorial calendar gives you an overview of your blog and when each post will be published. You can drag and drop to move posts, edit posts right in the calendar, and manage your entire blog.

  1. So smart! I’ve been seeing the footers in my feed but didn’t know how to add one. Thanks for sharing! Do you have a recommendation for a byline plugin?

  2. You know I love this post! I’ve been waiting for it since I read the first one. I still need to add the footer and author box. The internal links plug-in will be extremely helpful as well. Thanks so much!

  3. Some day I will join the cool girls club and go over to word press! And you know I will be coming to learn from you the moment I join! : )

    You have the best posts. This was awesome. Thanks for sharing.

    1. NoFollow is perfect for those who don’t want to fiddle with HTML code! Comment Reply notification is nice so that your commenters get an email when their comment gets a reply. Like you just got now!

    1. NoFollow makes your link, well, no follow links. Any sponsored post links need to be No Follow so you don’t get dinged by Google.

  4. Every Saturday I write a blog post called “Better Blogging and Better Business.” I always refer people to your WordPress plugin tips and my readers always love them!

  5. I am so thankful for your tips! I will look into the footer one… but the internal links one… do you use this? I’d worry it would look messy – like it was full of ads.

    1. I used to use that one and then it was looking a little spammy. BUT it did work to get people to click to other links.

  6. Great list you have here! Is your “let’s connect” in you sidebar a plugin or did you design it? I want a plugin now because I’m too tired to keep updating mine to keep up with the social media changes (also I love that you have a bloglovin’ symbol)

  7. That calendar plugin has been my favorite since I first discovered it! I just downloaded the comment reply one because the one I had been using seems to have stopped working- so thanks!
