Which Plug-Ins Are You Using For Your Website or Blog?

.

Your website or blog is your online billboard and resume. You want to have it seen by as many readers as possible. There is no easier way to multiply the amount of readers or potential customers than with plug-ins and sharing buttons – up to seven times.
.

Installing click-able buttons to offer the idea of sharing front and center to your readers, makes it incredibly simple for them to post your link to Facebook, Twitter, Google+, or other social networks and share the news or information with their peers. These little buttons are just too tempting to click on and tell all your peers about the wonderful article you just read or the great website you discovered.
.

However, there are not only plug-ins to multiply your audience, there is a variety of well coded security plug-ins such as Bulletproof security, Wordfence, or Better WP security. Also very useful are the ones who help with Search Engine Optimization, for sample Google XML Sitemaps, a plug-in which will generate a special XML sitemap, supporting search engines like Google, Bing, Yahoo and Ask.com to better index your blog. With such a sitemap, it’s much easier for the search engine crawlers to see the complete structure of your site and retrieve it more efficiently.

Jeff Bullas wrote a great blog post again, listing the 30 most popular WP plug-ins, and their direct links to detailed information. Get the list of these most popular WP plug-ins here on his website.
.

Visitors, who find your blog content valuable, can link to it with one click to their Google+, Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr, Reddit, StumpleUpon and Facebook accounts – and even to several hundred smaller social media sites. Give them the chance to spread the word about you and your (book) business. Install your plug-ins now into your website and blog.

2 More Reasons to Have a Blog for Book PR

32iuP_f

.
In one of my recent articles I have written about Content Marketing via your blog and how to write for the web. Another article encouraged writers to “Start a blog today!” as a New Years resolution.

.
Jeff Bullas has written a fantastic article (well, blog) about Content Marketing (for authors, I call it blogging) and the benefits (for the author). He says:

Search
“It is vital for optimizing your website and blogs to rank higher in search engines. The better the content and the more it is shared tells Google and other search engines that your website is worth reading. So it is pushed up the search rankings. If it is really good content it may even appear on the first page or even at number one (by the way by obtaining top ranking it receives about 40% of all clicks).”

Social
“Important for driving social media sharing – the better the content the more it is shared. It is as simple as that. Crap content does not get shared. Fullstop!!”

Key Insights
“Content writing (blogging) provides a solid footing for your marketing as 70% of customers prefer getting to know a company through an article rather than an ad. Websites with blogs receive 55% more visitors. 63% of companies said posting content on social media has increased marketing effectiveness.” 


And then he adds a couple of really good info-graphics, so hop over to Jeff Bullas’ blog to see them and to read the whole article!
