Socializing your blog through WordPress Plugins
Driving Traffic to your WordPress blog can be made a lot easier with the right set of plugins. This is one of the most comprehensive lists of plugins for Socializing your blog. These are not so much SEO tools, but rather a way to drive your reader base which can be almost as good. Readership from subscribers accounts for 25% of my traffic, but more importantly it accounts for about 30% of the people who link to me. Your regular subscribers are less likely to click on ads, but are more likely to purchase through your affiliate programs (of which I have none at the moment).
Later I may post some of the plugins I wrote for my own use.
