6/ CommentLUV for WordPress
CommentLuv helps you increase your reader engagement. It rewards visitors who leave comments by then adding a recently posted article link from the visitor’s own site. You can refer to the comments section below to see how this works.
Blog comments are proven to help SEO. Visitors comments add additional content for search engines to index. When the comments are valuable and cover questions, answers, and ideas Google takes notice. They are a great indication of how well an article has been received. You don’t really need your analytics to tell you this, you can see it in discussion form.
There is a Free and Premium version of the plugin. We are running the FREE version on Infobunny.

7/ Related Posts By Zemanta
Related Posts gives your visitors reason to stay on your pages for longer.
After a reader has finished reading your latest article they are in action mode and looking to read more. Related Posts By Zemanta displays your other related articles below the main content. There are many reasons why it is beneficial to show related posts.
The main benefit of having related posts on your articles is the increased engagement and readership that you earn from having them on your site. When your other posts displayed strategically your click through increases and your bounce rate decreases.
8/ Social Author Bio
Social Author Bio is a very useful plugin that allows you to add an Author Box at the end of your articles. You can attach all your social media contact details to all the social media connectable services provided (see image below)

9/ Simple Share Buttons
There are lots of different share button plugins available but as the name suggests Simple Share Buttons is incredibly simple and at the same time customisable and stylish
Select the position where you would like to display the buttons, before or after the post, the location, pages, posts, homepage, archives/categories. Select the style of buttons you want to add and then connect the services you would like to add and click save.
10/ Triberr Plugin
The final plugin in the Infobunny Top 10 Plugins is the Triberr Plugin. Triberr is a website where members can create tribes(groups) around their niche interests, it is a site for bloggers who want to connect with bloggers. I have already written a full article about Triberr so I will link you to it.
Triberr is all about Blogging and Social Media. It is bloggers helping bloggers, get their articles and posts seen, via Triberr Tribes and Social Media Channels.
Tribes to put it simply are groups of like minded individuals who like you and i are looking for engagement to the articles that they post, to bring in traffic, better search results.
Find the top Influencers and become an Influencer
Finding relevant niche tribes however can be a little tricky especially when you are just starting out with Triberr.
But worry not, my Triberr Beginners Guide and Tutorial will help you get past the road blocks ahead.
The Triberr Plugin connects your blog to your Triberr account so that when you post your article is also published on Triberr and time stamped later than the original so that there are no duplicate content issues, it is then available for all your Triberr followers to view and engage and comment.
