One of the features of a blogger blog is the ability to become expandable in which you can install different plugins and widgets without having to worry about the space as it is “Unlimited” . Despite of this advantage, bloggers shouldn’t try to install every attractive widgets they found here and there as this might cause ‘overloading’ and make your page load slower.
Today, am going to introduce Top 5 blogger’s Plugins and Widget to start with to make your blog look awesome and SEO friendly.
- Auto Read More Plugin
When you create a blog, your post after been published will be displayed in full on your homepage but the Automatic Read More Plugin breaks your post and insert a link with “Continue Reading, Read Full Post or whatever you wish to” in which your blog’s reader will have to click on it if they want to read the full post.
- Post Title Before Blog Title Plugin
Initially when your post is shared on facebook or viewed on search engine like google, your blog’s title will be displayed before your post title Example; Netsocialblog | How To Create A Blog. The disadvantage of this type of format is that; if either/both of your blog title and post title are too long, search engines would only show a few words in which the post title (the part your readers love to see) would be cut-off and that is why its best to make your post title displayed before blog title. Once this Plugin had been installed in your blog, your post meta description will be display in this format like this: How To Create A Blog | Tech and Social Media blog.
- Search bar Widget
The Search bar widget allows your visitor to find content they might be looking for simply by typing the phrase or a few word in the search bar. You can decide to install it in your blog’s sidebar, footer or the header. ( It all boils down to your choice;)
- Recent Posts Widgets
I hope you knew the fact that not all readers do travel to your blog via the homepage, some might be redirected to your blog by a particular link to one of your post. Having this widget on your blog enables your blog visitor to easily find out your latest post.
