DoFollow (WP Plugin) – Kimmo Suominen

This is a plugin for WordPress. It will disable the automatic rel=”nofollow” attributes added to external links. You may want to do this if you have good spam filtering for your comments, or if your blog is moderated. Optionally you can also set a comment age limit for adding the attributes.

This seems perfect for awarding people who take time from their busy schedule and write a line or two on your blog. They’ll get back a bit of Page Rank from your blog through the back link, which may be enough motivation for many to start typing. Continue reading »

 

Ultimate Tag Warrior 3

Ultimate Tag Warrior is a multi-headed hydra of a plugin. It allows you to add tags either through the Write Post page in WordPress in a tag box, on posts using an AJAXy box, and in posts using special syntax from external editors […]

Once you’ve got your tags entered; you enter a realm of interesting ways of doing things with your tags. […] At the simpler end, you can automagically have tags included at the top and bottom of your posts without making changes to themes.

Think about coupling this with the Related Posts plugin to get a really powerful tool.

But… if you don’t mess with links or change Permalinks on a daily basis you shouldn’t be having 404′s in the first place, should you?

And if you do need to change Permalinks or update the page/post slugs, see how you can actually benefit from it and increase your Google PageRank as you go. ;)

 

Related posts for your 404

How would you like the ability to display related entries on a 404 page? It would be really handy.

This plugin displays related posts depending on which page tried to be accessed, and it does so by attempting to match the keywords in the requested URL – basically the post slug – with the keywords from other post slugs.

You might need to tweak your Permalink structure to make it work.

I have a really neat idea for a plugin that will actually take into account tags and even keywords from other posts when displaying related ones so it’s not relying on a certain Permalink structure to work. Let me know if you’re interested, and I might squeeze it in one of these days.

 

Subscribe2 2.2.2

Now that’s a very neat plugin. Allow your users to be receive an email notification whenever someone adds a new comment to a post they’re watching. It’s pretty much like a “subscribe to thread” for forums.

And here is another plugin that does the same thing.

Think of it!

This is an extremely powerful tool that makes your users coming back again and again to your blog. Viral. Free. Automated. What more can you ask for?

A must for serious traffic building!

The more I think about it, the more it seems the gap between blogs, forums and regular websites is getting thinner day by day. We want to publish more information, faster, in a more user friendly way and let everyone know about it and interact with us.

What would be an appropriate term for the mega-websites of the future? Information vortals? Hmm…

By default, WordPress lacks the ability to send emails to registered users. This plugin was created to fill the gap by allowing you to send emails to your blog users.

More details are available on the WordPress Send Private Email plugin page on my blog.

To prevent abuse this powerful mass mailing functionality is available only to users with Administrator role. This can be changed quite easily if need be, for instance to allow all Editors or greater to use the plugin. Just let me know if you need it, and I’ll modify it for you.

Once activated it adds a new submenu called Write Private Email under the Write menu in the blog management area.

Simple, powerful and very convenient to use.
