Over the last few weeks I have been putting my second wordpress plugin together, and I’ve just had a few people download and test it (most via bloggingtips.com) so now I am ready to make a proper post about it. The plugin page was published over the weekend, but here is a quick post about “Increase Sociability“. Basically it is a wordpress plugin, that reminds users from Digg & StumbleUpon to give your site a positive vote it they like it.
About the WordPress Plugin
This plugin is pretty simple to install (see page for full details) and it will allow you to customise the message that visitors from StumbleUpon or Digg will see. Also as part of the implementation there is the option to display this message, before/after or both before and after your blog post. So if you just want to say thanks to a visitor from these sites then this can be a handy addition to wordpress indeed.
This plugin was inspired a little from Donncha’s plugin called “Friends don’t let friends see adverts” or as I called it “ads for enemies“. This is a cool plugin that allows you to reward commentators by not letting them see ads. Donncha is a WordPress developer (who btw. has a great new plugin to keep your site above water after the digg effect, called WP Super Cache) and is always well worth a read.
So if you are looking to increase your StumbleUpon traffic you should check out Increase Sociability. Feedback and bug reports can be left in the comments section (thanks!).
