Hope your weekend is going well. I’ve relocated to North Carolina where the weather is much nicer at the moment than Vermont, so I’m enjoying that. I’ve got a few new(ish) WordPress plugins for ya for this week’s WordPress Weekend post. I haven’t tested any of these. You can try them out on a test blog before using them on your live site.
Title Split Test Plugin
The headline is the most important thing about any blog post. And although you always try to write the best ones you can, at some point you have to pick one out of all your drafts (you do write more than one headline to try and come up with the best one, right?). The problem is you never know if that other one you almost went with wouldn’t have been better.
Title Split Test is a free plugin that lets you enter in multiple titles per blog post and then lets you know which one performed the best.
Wordfence Security Plugin
Wordfence is a newer free security plugin that has some pretty interesting features. It checks your WordPress core files against the official WordPress file repository, performs malware scans, and much more.
Social Count Plus Plugin
There a few social sharing plugins out there I like but my one disappointment is that they don’t show any sharing numbers as social proof to site visitors. Social Count Plus looks like a nice one that does just that.
Read Offline Plugin
For people with EPUB readers (Nook, Kindle, iOS, etc.), giving them the ability to save your blog posts for offline reading later in the EPUB format might be a nice option to offer. Read Offline is a plugin that does just that.
Pinterest Image Pin Plugin
If you’ve ever wanted to have a simple “Pin it” button under your blog post images, check out Pinterest Image Pin. It makes a lot of sense to put the Pin button directly by an image, so I really like the idea of this plugin.
Which one of these strikes you as the most useful? Are you going to try them? Let me know!
