Without increasing your blog traffic it is very hard to boost your online income, agree?
Then how can you increase your blog traffic without sweating much?
One of the best things about WordPress is its plugins. There are wide range of plugins that help you boost your blog traffic without having to write contents day-in and day-out.
Here’s a list of top 7 WordPress plugins to increase your blog traffic. Let’s dive into the details without much ado.
WordPress plugins to increase blog traffic
1. HTML sitemap generator
This is a must have WordPress plugin to increase your blog traffic. It will help Google spiders to find each and every page on your blog to better index your site in the search engines, thus more traffic from them. And it automatically generates XML Sitemaps for your site and notifies search engines when they’re updated.
If you want to boost your blog traffic, social media is the key. Social media sites like Facebook, twitter etc. can bring you massive traffic to your blog posts if they are informative. By making it easy for your readers to share your blog posts on social media sites, you can easily spread your contents on social media. To make this process simple, install a plugin called Sharebar.
It adds a dynamic and fully customizable vertical box to the left of a blog post that contains links/buttons to popular social networking sites. For wide blogs, a vertical bar with popular sharing icons appears on the left of your post.
3. All in one SEO pack
I use this plugin. Most professionals use it to get more traffic to their posts from the search engines.
The good thing about this plugin is, even a beginner (even a non tech person) can use it to get more organic traffic. All you need is to just fill the title, meta description and tags with certain keywords. You’re done.
It is used to automatically optimize your WordPress blog for Search Engines.
4. WP touch
According to a recent research, there are more number of users who are browsing websites and blogs using their androids, mobiles and tablets.
So if you wan to increase your blog traffic, you have to optimize your blog for the mobile devices. Without having a mobile friendly design, you are losing lots of readers and potential customers.
This plugin automatically enables a simple and elegant mobile theme for mobile visitors of your WordPress website. The mobile theme is complete with AJAX loading articles and smooth effects when viewed from popular touch mobile devices like the iPhone, iPod touch, Android mobile phones, BlackBerry OS6+ mobile devices, and more.
5. nrelate Related Content
One of the easiest ways to increase your blog traffic using WordPress plugins is to display your recent posts in thumbnails. If your readers like your headlines, they will definitely read more posts.
This plugin continuously analyzes your website content and displays other related posts from your website. This ultimately leads to higher page-views for your site, and a better user experience for your visitors.
6. CommentLuv plugin
Now don’t get me wrong.
If you want to increase your blog traffic, install CommentLuv either free or paid version.
There are lots of bloggers who are constantly searching for the blogs that are enabled with CommentLuv plugin. So if you want to drive both traffic and comments on your blog posts, this plugin is for you.
It rewards your readers by automatically placing a link to their last blog post at the end of their comment.
7. Evergreen post tweeter
I recently started using this plugin. And it’s a great WordPress plugin to increase your blog traffic from twitter. Don’t forget that twitter is a great source of traffic to all the bloggers.
Evergreen Post Tweeter enables you to schedule and automatically tweet out links to old posts.
