SDAC Recommends: WordPress Plugin: WordPress Reports

After you put all your time and effort into creating your WordPress blog or WordPress web site, it is important to keep an eye on where your visitors are entering and exiting your site, what they are viewing (and not viewing), where they are being referred from, and how many people are reading your RSS feeds. Fortunately – if you sign up for the free Google Analytics and/or Feedburner services, you can easily view your site’s statistics using the WordPress Reports within your WordPress Admin. Definitely check this plugin out if you are at all serious about increasing your web site traffic.

SDAC Recommends: WordPress Plugin: Update Manager

A number of bugs can easily be solved by making sure you have the latest version of a particular plugin. If you are like most people, you do not have time to go to each and every plugin’s web site and confirm you have the latest version, but the Update Manager plugin will. The plugin is relatively new and somewhat in beta, but it has already saved me countless hours – and hopefully will do the same for you.
