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.

CommentLuv has a great feature in that when you hover over a recently posted article link you are shown a CommentLuv card that shows lot’s more information about your site and other articles that you have published. Check out the screen capture below or just go to the comments section and give it a very

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

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

Simple Share Buttons

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 Getting Started Guide

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.

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.

That’s it for the Top 10, remember my Top 10 was in no particular order… I will keep this updated as and when I find new treasures to share

    I like your list of 10, Dexter. Thank you for the clear explanation of each. I need to check out the Author Bio. I’ve never had one, though other blogging friends have spoken highly of it.

    Plugins are what make WordPress such a powerful platform to use.

    You’ve described some really great ones here, Dexter.

    The Social Author Bio one is a really great way to get your social influence flowing, and the Triberr method is definitely powerful.

    Thanks for the tips.

    Hi Dexter,

    Thanks for sharing this list, one thing I would like to get more insight about is Communtluv, I used to use it on my previous blog 3 years back and I was using the Pro version and I was very happy with it. Recently I read a lot of bad reviews about the plugin not being updated for years, I tried Disqus for a while and then read a lot of bad reviews about it and then defaulted back to WordPress comments.

    Do you have any issues with the plugin on your website? the negative feedback I have seen is that it might encourage spam behavior and also it hasn’t been an update for a while now.

    Thanks again.
