Plugins are the difference between a WordPress blog and a blog hosted on any other platform. WordPress plugins have given us so many options that you can do pretty much anything today with one of the several plugins available – most of them free and a few of them paid. Setup an autoresponder on your blog, auto approve comments, check spam, enhance your wordpress blog design, insert advertisements, add banner ads to you blog etc. is all a click of a few buttons if you have the right plugin installed.
I have several useful plugins installed that help me load my blog faster and also optimize it for the search engines. In addition to many free plugins that I use, there are a few paid plugins that I think every blog should have, if you are serious about building a better blog and making money out of it.
5 Essential Paid Plugins for your blog.
The 5 plugins that I am about to mention, are the most important and the minimum that any blog should have. If you think there are a few more, you can always write about them in the comments below for the benefit of our readers –
Pop-up Domination – This is one of the best plugins that I have ever used. Pop-up domination has helped me build my list. My list went up from a mere 10-15 signups a day to more than 50 signups a day after I installed Pop-up Domination.
Popup Domination is a list building plugin that helps you create attractive and handy pop-ups where you can offer your readers a useful product or, course in return for signing up to your lists. You need to offer value to your readers and popup domination will do the rest. With a simple installation and customization option, popup domination is the best list building tool you could ever get.
You can read my review of the Popup Domination plugin at Youtube.
Wp-Syndicator – This is another plugin that I am using on my blog. This plugin helps you syndicate you blog posts to more than 15 authority sites, thus helping you build backlinks to your posts. These sites include Posterous, Xanga, Identica, Tumblr, Friendfeed, Twitter, Brightkite, Multiply etc. Syndication is extremely easy with a few clicks and your articles get indexed in a few hours.
Wp-Syndicator is easy to install and easy to use and helps you build your blog’s presence on the internet. I was able to increase my backlinks by more than 73% after I started using this plugin. My readership increased by about 41% after using Wp-Syndicator.
SEOPressor – If you are like me, I am sure you are tired of the SEO thing on your blog. SEO is a combination of a thousand things and I often try to ignore it because of the sheer efforts required in SEO. Here is a plugin that can take all the efforts out of SEO. I was surprised at the effect of the plugin, when I saw a few of my posts on the first page of Google, just by following the simple tips that SEOPressor told me.
SEOPressor would suggest on whatever is missing in your post and would also give your posts a score on SEO. Based on the suggestions, you can tweak your article and you will see the change in score. If the score is greater that 85%, then your article is most likely to get to the top of the search engines.
MaxBlogPress Ninja Affiliate – The objective of any blog is to earn money. Monetization can be an extremely daunting task at times. Adding links, choosing affiliate programs, selecting the products etc. can be time-consuming and difficult. That is where MBP Ninja Affiliate Plugin comes in handy.
The Ninja Affiliate plugin can add links to your posts based on pre-chosen keywords. You can decide what all keywords you want to create links to. Once you have updated all your details on the options page of the plugin, you can relax. The plugin will add relevant product links to the keywords that you have chosen and will also add your affiliate code to it, thus monetizing your blog posts.
Wp-Robot – This is another plugin I am a fan of. Though I do not use this plugin in this blog of mine (because this is not an auto blog), I have about 40 different auto blogs that I use this plugin on. Wp-Robot, generates content for my blogs on auto pilot and all I have to do is sit back and count the money flowing in from my auto blogs.
For those who are not aware of auto-blogs, these are blogs that run on auto-pilot and the articles on these blogs are normally posted by a robot application. You can monetize such blogs using adsense and other ad channels and also use affiliate links on them to make money.
Wp-Robot makes posting a simple activity. Just fill out all the options and forget it. Wp-Robot will keep publishing content to your blogs and you will not have to worry about it.
