The Best Blogging WordPress Plugins

If you want to make money online but you aren't quite ready to set up a whole business, one of the best things you can do is blog. Blogs let you talk about subjects you love and earn money while you do it. It's almost ridiculously easy to set a blog up on WordPress. You can sell advertising through your sidebars, footers and on individual post pages. You can take sponsorships through your posts. Of course, first, you need to make sure that your blog is as functional as possible. This is where the WordPress Plugin library comes in handy. Here are some of the best WordPress plugging you can set up.

Comment Moderation Plugin's
Use the Auto Close Comments, Pingbacks and Trackbacks Plugin. Old blog posts are the best sort of bait for automated comment spammers. This can be incredibly time consuming for you-weeding them out and deleting them. Using comment moderation can help some, but you'd be better off using this Plugin. This Plugin lets you set up a time and date for closing the comments on your older blog posts. This will keep the automated spam commenting bots from being able to do their thing and pollute your blog. It will also save you all sorts of moderation time.
Spam commenting is a problem for every person who operates a blog, whether they use WordPress or not. This is one of the reasons you should choose WordPress as your blogging platform. Every WordPress blog comes with the Akismet plugin already installed. Make sure that it is turned on and that you have configured its settings. Akismet is a great plugin for catching spam comments. If you don't have your settings correctly set up, though, you might find that legitimate comments are being eaten. So take some time to configure the plugin before you turn it on. There are no other spam catchers that are as good as Akismet.
Changing The Look & Feel Of Your Blog...
One of the most fun parts of blogging is playing around with your themes and your templates. Of course, if you aren't careful, you could really confuse your readers. Playing around with templates is fun and all but you need to have the WordPress Plugin Theme Tester installed. This will let you test run the changes you are making to your theme before you let your readers see them. Anybody who wants to see the changes that you have made before you're ready for everyone to see them will have to have administrative privileges or a password for your blog.
Final Thoughts...
WordPress is one of the best blogging platforms online right now. People even use it for websites that are not blogging based. Of course, before you can hope to use your blog for earning money, you need to make sure that it is as functional as possible. This is where the vast WordPress plugin library can come in handy. Of course, you need to make sure that you have the right plugins installed. Start with the blogging plugins we've talked about here and see what else you can find!

  1. Sir I have a question.
    I want a add a search bar on a page and want to limit it to post titles only. I mean when I search something, it should check only texts in post title not the entire post content. I am using blogger.
