    Great list of plugins. One of which solves a current problem I was having on one of my blogs. I’m a happy blogger this morning! thank you for sharing.

  5. rjlight says:

    thanks. my frustration is that I am with which doesn’t allow plug-ins. I don’t know if I get enough traffic that I would make anything either. Do you try to get steady readership and then upgrade to your own hosted site and add money generating plug-ins?

  6. rjlight – If you put ads on after you have a good readership you will get complaints, and if you have ads from the start people will say you are in it just for the money. There is no winning :P Its one of those things that always has a downside

  7. I knew about most of the Adsense ones, but the rest is news to me. Thanks a lot.

    Some good plugins here, a couple of which are exactly what I have been looking for.

    The Adsense ones seem to be far easier to find than the others, so this is really useful information. Thanks Darren

    The site is called Online Presence —

  19. Ling says:

    Hi Darren, another great post by you!
    Btw, as a newbie, I find this challenging. I know how a plugin looks like but I dont know what’s the name to search for. For example, for after every blogpost, you have a “What Next?” I guess it’s a plugin but what is it called?
    I have seen some “Read the rest of the entry here” being replaced with “Read in about 5 minutes, ” etc… I want to implement but dont know the name of this sort of plugins.

  20. I hear that there are 6 plugins for WordPress that can be used to start a product review blog but… I’ve tried to do a Google search to find them myself but I only managed to find 1 of them:

    1) The DG Review Site (DGRS) plugin for WordPress

    can anybody help here?

  21. ITR says:

    This post has been very helpful to me, thanks!

  22. Iconic says:

    Great list!…Keep em comin.

  23. Vikas says:

    Well, for some wierd reason, my blog doesnt allow me to add plug-ins, so that post turned out to be useless for me :(.

  24. Steve says:

    Thanks for the hint, Lorelle’s list is one of the most complete and useful ones for sure.

  25. I’ll check all the plugins, I hope they really work for my blog. Thanks 4 share Darren.
