Warning: Ignoring These 7 WordPress Plugins Could Seriously Damage Your Blog

No doubt you’ve seen them.

The eye-catching posts that promise to reveal the 5, or 10 or even 57 WordPress plugins you absolutely must use on your blog.

You click the headlines and scroll through the posts, your jaw hanging open at the seemingly endless opportunities to transform your blog.

And inevitably, you find yourself installing every single one.

But soon after, you realize that most of these plugins don’t live up to the hype.

In other words, you’ve wasted your time.

Worse still, your site has become noticeably slower. Your newly sluggish dashboard means tasks that used to take a few seconds now take a full minute. And your readers are getting a poor experience too.

It’s a common situation – “shiny object syndrome” is difficult to avoid.

But you must need some plugins installed on your blog, right?

So the question remains:

Which ones do you really need?

And wouldn’t it be great if someone could just tell you exactly what they are?

An Open Letter to Bloggers Struggling to Get More Traffic

An Open Letter to Bloggers Struggling to Get More Traffic

It hurts me to write this.

For years, I’ve been “the traffic guy.” Not only because I’m good at getting it, but because it’s the question on the top of every blogger’s mind:

“How do I get more traffic to my blog?”

To some degree, this entire site is an answer to that question. You’ll learn more about getting blog traffic here than maybe anywhere else on the web.

But there’s one giant problem…

It’s the wrong question.

And I’ve known it for years.

And I’ve said nothing.

Not because I’m an asshole (well, maybe). No, the real reason is I felt like we were serving the needs of the market. People wanted to know how to get more traffic, so we created courses teaching them how.

How the heck do they do it?

How do your favorite bloggers attract so many gung-ho, drum-thumping followers?

Be honest – you’d love to inspire that much loyalty.

You try your darndest to emulate them, but nothing seems to work.

How to Turn Quora into a Traffic-Driving Machine for Your Blog

Frustrating, isn’t it?

You work tirelessly on your content – but no one reads it.

It’s like giving a presentation to an empty room. No matter how much insight you have to share, nobody’s there to even notice.

You feel certain that if you could only get some more traffic to your blog, the content love would flow.

But even when you promote the heck out of your latest post, the following week you have to start the process all over again.

It’s exhausting.

But what if there was a strategy that could drive traffic not just to your latest post, but future ones too?

And what if that same strategy was as effective as guest blogging for getting new visitors, but was quicker, easier and didn’t require you to pitch your ideas to anyone?

What if by using that strategy you’d be rubbing shoulders with some of the biggest names on the web?

Wouldn’t you want to know what that strategy is?

3 Simple Blog Graphics You Can Create (Even if You’re Not a Designer)

Let’s be honest.

Blogging is hard.

You’re forced to wear many hats – writer, editor, promoter, social media manager, even accountant.

And adding another hat – designer – is probably the last thing on your to-do list.

But the problem is, beautiful prose just isn’t enough these days.

Your work must look great, too. Because if it doesn’t, it’ll get ignored.

That’s worrying.

Because when you look at the content you’re competing with, the bar is getting higher and higher.

Even if you have enough natural ability to add graphic design to your skill set, do you have the time?

And what if you don’t have that innate talent?

Thankfully, you don’t have to be a creative genius or have tons of spare time to make sure your content meets the new visual standard.

You just need a free tool and a few simple tricks.
