10 Best WordPress Plugins To Propel Your Money Blog
Posted by Jonnotie on November, 14, 2010
Can’t wait to start your first money blog? Not so fast dude. There are a number of things that you might want to consider after your first success in installing WordPress. WordPress plugins, just like those accessories like tinted films, turbo booster, nitrogen refills which you get for your new car to make her performance steps up a notch.
1. You don’t have enough traffic
2. You don’t want your blog bleeding unnecessary traffic juice to those advertisers’ links too early
3. Many SEOs say that later installation of Google Adsense is good for your potential money blog’s ranking; which coincide with no. 2.
From my observation, your blog needs at least 6 months with constant updates to see the first significant movement in Google’s Serp ranking. So chill out for the moment. Focus your energy on building the contents and start choosing those WordPress plugins that will boost up your money blog. I will suggest a few for you according to their purpose:
This is a classic. There are quite a number of bloggers who promoted other SEO plugins like SEO Ultimate and Headspace 2. To me, All In One is all that you need. It allows you to write meta-tags (Google does not look at meta-tags anymore so it seems, but nobody’s sure…) and meta-description. If you are loaded, you can opt for the paid-for version to help support the community who provides us with this wonderful tool, but I’m all a cheapskate when I started to keep my overhead low.
Another classic WordPress plugin that stops those cursed spams. Trust me you need Akismet and make sure it’s the first plugin that you install when you start.
3. Frame Free
Social bookmarking sites like Digg, Facebook, Google Images supposedly create a frame around the link to your blog. If you are familiar with SEO, a framework in any website will render the page inaccessible by Google bots and other search engines’ crawlers. When they don’t crawl on your blog, that spells bad news: weak serp ranking.
This WP Plugin suppose to be able to strip the no-follow attribute from the comment post when you put your blog link on the comments’ column of other blogs. Google requires all blogs to insert the no-follow attribute in our blogs’ comment column to prevent spammers from being indexed. At least this is the reason Google wants us to believe.
Previously, commenting on other blogs used to be the easiest way to collect backlinks from high PR sites. The ones who are able to do this every night will be able to bring their blogs up to favorable ranking in Google, thus cancelling the needs to use Adwords advertising.
5. no-no follow
Similar to Follow My Link, this plugin will erase the no-follow from other blogs when linked to you. Both 4 and 5 will serve to improve the SEO of your money blog in no time.
Translate your blog into 40 languages and thus attract more readers to your blog. Google does have a translator in Google Chrome but, we try not to rely on lord Google all the time right?
iTranslator creates caches that will store different contents in differing languages. There is a catch here though. Too many caches will increase the crawl rates of Google bots, therefore putting your blog at risk of being banned under Google’s TOS. Use it at your own risk.
7. Quick Cache
Quick Cache increases the speed of your blog’s loading speed by creating caches for search engine’s to crawl. It is safe to use coz it stores caches for short durations. Bear in mind that Google will only allow you to store cache for 15 days so anything lower than that will be safe. The rule of thumb is, the longer you take to update your blog, the longer you can set the duration of the cache’s expiry.
A plugin for security. Sorry i don’t know how it works but if it’s recommended by WordPress.org, I would count it safe
You need to backup your contents in case something happen. How about if an earthquake hits the town of your hosting company??
A WordPress plugin that will build a sitemap for your blog. This plugin’s power is most obvious when your blog tries to optimize a long tailed keyword. Indexing is nearly immediate in nature.
These are merely 10 WordPress plugins that I’m recommending to you for the moment. Trust me, you will actually learn to use different kind of plugins as your knowledge in SEO progresses. For example, WordPress plugins for Tweeting, Facebook and other Social Media Marketing; these plugins are more suitable for business blogs, and affiliate sites. Know what your blogs are used for and map out your requirements.
