9 Great WordPress Extensions For Your WordPress Blog
WordPress itself is a great platform to run your own blogs but WordPress extensions make it much easier to manipulate spam comments, SEO, check for damaged links, place income generating adverts and to back up your WordPress database to name 1 or 2. Without these enhancements you will require technical expertise way beyond the average blogger, not to mention the time extensions save in doing things like creating a “Contact Us” page and sorting out all those splog comments. Here are the nine plugins that I now use on all my blogs. Akismet is a popular plugin that checks your comments against the Akismet web service to work out if they appear to be spam or not. You can review the spam it catches under “Comments.” Without this sort of a plugin your blog could become full of undesirable comments that you definitely don’t want your fans to read. All in One S.E.O Pack is Out-of-the-box S.E.O for your WordPress blog.
You need to use this plugin to modify the default options for title, outline, keywords and unoriginal content. Broken Link Checker checks your posts for damaged links and missing images and notifies you on the dashboard if any are found. There is nothing worse getting traffic to your blog and then sending them to a web page that no longer exists. Without this plugin it might takes quite some time to frequently check all the links on all your blog entries and pages. Google AdSense, Chitika and Kontera enhancements allow you to monetize your blog and make an income from an information blog. Contact Form 7 permits you to create a “Contact Us” page with a form folks can fill in for more info or questions about your produce.
