Last Thursday I noticed that Increased Sociability managed to get a mention on SEOmoz’s roundup. They were kind enough to give me a 3 out of 5 for the plugin . To be honest I had kind of forgotten about the plugin, and the increased traffic from SEOmoz came as a bit of surprise. This also pushed me to upload the latest version of the plugin, this version has just been updated on the WordPress Plugin Database. In the last few months the plugin has been covered on a few websites like SearchEngineLand / Wolf-Howl, and the feedback for the plugin has been much better than I expected.
It did take me a bit of time to get the plugin on the WordPress Plugin Database, but for any plugin author I think it is a must for you to have your plugin there. They provide statistics on the number of downloads and they will host your file for you in a nice .zip file. This also allows your visitors to use the automatic plugin update.
New Features for Increased Sociability
This version has some nice new features like the option to enable a test mode, this will include the DIGG message to everyone, this allows you to navigate your pages and see how the message will appear on your wordpress pages.
Also I added the option to add a custom website, currently I am using mine to welcome the visitors from SEOmoz. This 3rd welcome message is customizable, so you can either add another social media website (sphinn, rededit etc) or you can just a pick a random website that gives you traffic (maybe google searchers_ , and you can display a message to them.
Anyway the plugin can be downloaded here.
