5 Wordpress Plugins To Make Your Blogging Easier
- 8 Comment
Lately I have been installing Wordpress Plugins like crazy. Probably about 10 in the last few days. I wanted to share a few ‘new’ ones that I have found from other bloggers. After reading the 15 Most Under-Utilized Plugins for SEO I installed many of them.
This is the #1 Wordpress Plugin to make life easier as a blogger. This particular blog gets at least 100 spam comments per day. Not sure why it’s so high, but imagine trying to moderate that yourself everyday. Waste of time!
I recently just upgraded this plugin, which is sporting a new feature. You can now automatically discard spam comments on posts older than a month. Check!
TagMahal – Automatic Tag Suggestion
This plugin will simply find suggested keywords you can tag your post with. I am a bit lazy and would like to see more from this plugin. After generating these suggested keywords, I’d like to then click and add them, instead of copy and pasting them in. Still a time saver.
Technorati Incoming Links
I hated upgrading Wordpress after finding out my Technorati links would be replaced with some Google garbage. Well if you miss Technorati you can have it back. Simply install the plugin and you will have your incoming Technorati links back in the dashboard where they belong.
Broken Link Checker
We have posts dated all the way back to Nov 2006. We’ve done a lot of linking to try and share our traffic and really promote other bloggers. As we know, many come and go. This has left us with tons of broken links, way more than I had ever thought.
At the time of this post, the plugin has found 183 broken links. That’s after I’ve already cleaned some! How many broken links do you have?
No Self Pings
I already blogged about No Self Pings Please, but I had to mention this again. Ever since installing I haven’t had to deal with any annoying self pings.
