The 10 best WordPress plugins to get more traffic on your website

Website Traffic Plugins Wordpress

When it comes to getting traffic to a WordPress website, it will be easier if you use the right plugins.

In today’s post, we will share information about the best WordPress plugins that we can use to increase traffic on our websites.

Getting traffic to our website is not only about defining how your readers will get to your website, but also how to keep them there, and make them come back again and again.

The Best WordPress Plugins to get traffic from search engines

WordPress SEO by Yoast

This is one of my favorite SEO plugins because it allows you to check how search engine-friendly your content is before it is published.

The plugin provides a preview of how the content would look if it were already on Google. And, so you can focus on keywords to see how much they appear throughout the post, the title, URL, etc.

That being the case, it is possible to change the title and in turn the description to make them more SEO-friendly, and make people want to click and review your content.

All this can be done from the publication’s editing page.

And with this, it becomes an important step to follow, when editing along with the choice of labels, excerpts, categories and the main image.

All in One SEO Pack from WordPress:

This is one of the most popular SEO plugins for WordPress.

It’s incredibly easy to use and works with most WordPress plugins, automatically generating META tags and optimizing titles for search engines.

It has been downloaded over 9 million times, making it the most popular WordPress SEO plugin. One of its advantages is that it makes things much easier, and it does not require professional knowledge in SEO to be able to be used and obtain good results.

This is the kind of plugin that everyone should put on their blog if they are trying to get a better response from Google.

Because Google is hard to understand, so it’s easier to leave everything in the hands of someone who understands things better than you.

Sharebar – Social Media Slider

This plugin is the inspiration for this post. Well, we’ve been getting a lot of questions from people asking about it. And, about the way we configure it.

Among its advantages, it allows readers to select the social network through which they would like to share the content they are consuming.

This is much easier for them and encourages them to share it on their social networks.

I’m sure you’ve probably noticed, that this plugin scrolls up and down the page while you’re browsing. This lets the reader know where to put it if they want to share anything.

Having this plugin, as opposed to not having it, makes a world of difference. Which you can notice right away.

This means that more and more people are viewing my website.

As well as my Twitter account, on which, if you choose to follow me, you’ll have a good chance of seeing the website again.

Tweet Old Post para WordPress

I installed this plugin on a whim, thinking it wouldn’t be a big deal.

I had all my recent content set up to be tweeted through TweetAdder, but I had nothing set up for people to review my older tweets (many of which I considered lost in the archives).

With this plugin it is possible to change the settings to include links, add additional text, how many tweets will be published per day and much more. It is even possible to include the URL shortener.

So, with 5 minutes of work, you can have all the old tweets, contributing to your Twitter marketing campaigns.

And, with it, start to send considerable traffic to your website (if you have a good fan base).

My popularity increased in a matter of a few months, due to the more than 35,000 followers I had. Number that also continues to grow, while my community of fans on Facebook continues to increase.

My Facebook metrics showed me how successful my link campaign with my Facebook account had been.

And, that of Twitter, by noting that in the course of a month 635 people had reached my page, due to my regularly published tweets about it.

Facebook Social Plugin from para WordPress:

This is a plugin that almost every decent blog has, or at least a variation of it.

The official Facebook version is probably a little better than most, but it doesn’t really fit my theme.

The official version is a long, gridded box that grabs readers’ attention, with details about how many people liked your Facebook page, as well as their names and faces. Also, there is the option to “Like” the same website without having to go to Facebook.

This represents a great advantage for the alternatives that readers have since it is highly possible that they will click if they do not have to leave the page.

I changed this plugin recently, and I’ve noticed a big difference in the number of likes I’ve been getting since then.

Post to Twitter

Post to Twitter is a plugin that takes whatever content you’ve posted to WordPress and then posts it to Twitter.

Which immediately notifies all your followers.

This type of automation is accepted on Twitter, but not on Facebook. Because the number of updates per day is much higher than that of Facebook.

Posting on Facebook is something that must be done manually because Facebook can detect which program is used to post content, and this can alienate fans (if they were to notice that a machine is automating the posts).

Recently, I’ve started posting less about other people on my Twitter account and more about myself.

So I can now use it for traffic, rather than growing my Twitter page.

This is a plugin I’ve been wanting to install because of the way it works for Facebook and WordPress.

Apart from that, it makes it much easier for people to comment on a post. This also means that they will be able to share in their account of this social network what they have commented with the function “post to Facebook” (Publish on Facebook).

Clicking on this feature enables readers to share their views on their Facebook accounts. Therefore, they would also be sharing the content of the website with all their friends.

By making commenting easier, you are helping people find your website.

The image below shows how the theme looks in black, but it is also available in white.

Best WordPress Plugins to Reduce Bounce Rate

Reorder Posts Plugin

This is a great plugin to lower your bounce rate.

When visitors view category pages, there is the major drawback that only the most recent posts are seen. What we have found is that if we re-order it to show our favorite or most popular posts, readers will be visiting a lot more pages.

Featured Post Plugin

We use this plugin to display our favorite posts on our home page and below blog posts.

Many sites display related, recent, or most popular posts. But, we prefer to control which posts are displayed, because we feel we can display more meaningful content to users if we do it manually.

Broken Link Checker from WordPress

This plugin is almost mandatory for all WordPress sites. This informs you every time a link on your website is broken.

First of all, this is important because if a link is broken, Google will think that your website is out of date.

Second, a broken link will give users a bad experience with your website.

Sometimes when you add a link to a post or change a URL link, one of these links may be broken. And unless you check every link, you’ll never know.

However, thanks to this plugin you will not have this problem.

There you have it, our 10 tips on the best WordPress plugins to use to get more traffic.
