Almost every day, I get asked about a certain WordPress plugin or a recommendation for a certain one after my first list of must have WordPress plugins for Bloggers. I have been complying my list andeven found some new favorites to share with you.
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.
