The Best WordPress Plugins for Bloggers

Making money on the Internet is something people want to do. Wanting to do something online that you love is more natural. Making money with blogging is ideal for most people. Of course, before you can actually hope to earn income with your blog (however you plan to do that), you need to make sure you have the best blog possible. The majority of the responsibility of this falls to you and the content you create. The functionality of your blog also needs to be considered. If you are using WordPress (and you should) you have all sorts of plugins available that can help you with that. Here are a few of them.

Monitoring your stats and metrics is really important for any blog owner. One of the best is Google Analytics. Logging into different accounts just to view your stats can get time consuming, though. The WordPress.com statistics plugin offers an excellent alternative. The plugin displays the statistics you want to see in a section right there on your WordPress Dashboard. This is a great time-saving plugin.

You probably know that one of the best ways to get people to participate on your blog is to have a poll. You can create polls on almost anything. Of course running a poll solely through comments sections is time consuming. Perhaps consider using the WP-Polls plugin instead. You can use this plugin to create polls right from your blog account easily. You can find other poll creation codes externally, like PollDaddy, but using a plugin saves time. Then you only have the problem of thinking up poll questions.

Another WordPress plug-in you should try is Subscribe to Comments. When people make a post on a blog, if they use the checkbox, they will get e-mail notifications when other comments are posted. By doing this, it will be easier to keep your readers on your website longer. This is really not an obtrusive thing for your visitors. It is simply a checkbox, nothing more than that. It requires people to use their e-mail address. That’s all! There is nothing else that they have to do. And when you have an update, they are sent an e-mail. WordPress is considered to be the best platform for blogging. People also use it for websites that are not blogs. Of course, before you can hope to use your blog for earning money, you need to make sure that it is as functional as possible. This is where all of the WordPress plugins can help you. But, make sure that you are using the right plugins. But, you can begin with the plugins suggested within this article.
