Choosing the Best WordPress Widgets

 

OH NO. Not WordPress Again!!!

Yes, It’s another piece on WordPress, but I really believe you can never learn enough or be reminded of the power of  Wordpress and all it’s benefits ,

But I am already working on another posting which is NOT wordpress related  (I hope)

Choosing the Best WordPress Widgets

WordPress widgets are extremely popular.
After all, there are hundreds of excellent widgets that you can add to your blog to create a professional looking space.
The difference between a widget and a plugin is not much.
Widgets are very similar to plugins.

You install them like you would a plugin into the activate them from the plugins page.
The difference is that a widget is managed from the widget directory and they are made to be used in the sidebar.

How do you go about choosing the best WordPress ones?
Glad you asked! (you did ask , didn’t you?) It is tough – after all, there are so many,
but let’s start by looking at the best of the best right now.

#1 The Tag Cloud Widget

In the long list of WordPress widgets, this is one that is worth having on every blog.
It displays the tags associated with the post with the most popular being displayed in a larger font
than the less popular tags.
This is also an animated tag cloud widget if you prefer that.
With this one, the cloud appears to be moving.
The tag cloud (both versions) is one of the most popular plugins used.

#2 The Quick Shop Widget

Many consider this to be one of the most valuable WordPress widgets out there.
That’s because it’s a shopping cart for WordPress that gives you the functionality you need
to be able to sell goods and/or services quickly and easily.
It even has PayPal functionality and e-mail functionality built right into it.
This is by far one of the best widget out there, as you can use it to conduct your business
without having to invest large amounts of money.

(I am currently setting up a Digital Download Store using this, it should be completed in a few days}

#3 FV Community News

If you are wondering how this widget could benefit you,
the answer is simple – it can help you get the necessary content on your blog
to make it rate well in the search engines.
For most bloggers, producing articles every day can be hard.
Their readers want a lot more than they can produce.
Doing this manually is very time consuming and it can even be confusing if you are new to blogging.
The FV Community News widget can become your best friend allowing blog visitors
and fans to add to your articles if they feel they have relevant material.
It’s easy to use so take advantage of it.

#4 The Social Slider Widget

This is considered one of the top WordPress widgets.
It lets you add links to various social networking sites and it’s presented in a floating box
at the screen’s left side (usually).
The Social Slider Widget is definitely a plugin that you want to install and take advantage of.

WordPress widgets are worth putting into play on your blog.
It’s a great way to make the most out of your blog,

To make administration easier for you, 

To bring in visitors,

To help your search engine rankings,

And to impress your visitors with a well designed blog.

Until the next time

Dave
