  1. Hi Kriti,

    This is a great list of plugins. Thanks for sharing. There were some that I was actually not aware of. Revive Old Posts sounds pretty good. With respect to Disqus, I don’t like it as a commenting platform. I will not leave a comment on a blog with it. I noticed that a number of blogs that have used it are switching back because of a large decline of comments on their blogs. I am not surprised. My favorite commenting plugin is commentluv. Bloggers seem to like blogs with commenluv, because it allows the bloggers to link to their latest post. So it is an incentive to leave a comment. Works very well for me.

  2. Very impressive list! Thank you. What is missing for me? Plugins for newsletters and autoresponders… there is no better way to keep in touch with your audience and automation your marketing. Do you have any opinions?

  3. Hi,

    Well you have shared really great tips for increasing blog traffic and I guess its time to implement on same on my blogs.
