A 23 page index to 27 plugins for Wordpress, with brief explanations regarding each.I've read and reviewed several of this author's booklets. This one is especially useful for bloggers wishing to improve their web site without devoting their day to the task, and without having to consider taking out a second mortgage to fund the hobby.Mind you, I'm no expert with Wordpress, but I do believe each of the plugins featured will prove of great value as I proceed with my web page. Accordingly, I am rating Free WordPress Plugin Guide for Cheapskates: 27 of the Best WP Plugins with five stars. Why?When a guide so useful as this can be purchased for under a buck, and, especially when that guide has personality, you buy it. Or, at least, I buy it.
Like the author I've a good few years of experience working with Wordpress and used plenty of different plugins during that time. So I wasn't expecting to discover too many plugins here that I didn't already know about.I was very pleased therefore to find that actually the majority of plugins recommended here were new to me, yes there were a few 'must have ' plugins that I was aware of but mostly it was all new stuff which is great.I'm off to try a few of them now. Thanks!
The price was right (FREE) so I took a chance. There's a nice list of plugins here many I didn't know about. It's worth taking a look if you run a WordPress blog.
I read Chris's book on Long Tail Keywords, which was Great!And this book is just as valuable. When it comes to tools, marketing, SEO and website enhancement,Chris is your Man! He knows his stuff because he came from the school of hard knocks.He speaks from experience, instead of speaking from the sales floor.I highly recommend his work!
The book has a lit of plugins that every one of us who runs a wordpress blogs needs to use. I have already installed 5 plugins that were mentioned in this book. I read his previous book and it was full of information. Although his books are short to read, he writes them very well.It's not a fiction or even a proper non-fiction book. It's just a book that lists 27 wordpress plugins. But what makes it really worthy to read? "The Author Himself". He has personalized the book and you will feel like he is speaking to you. That's what I always like about Chris's books.Definitely a MUST buy if you have a wordpress blog. Voracious Reader votes it 5 star.
This has a deceint list of plugins to look into, but the author doesn't always do enough explaining. He says right from the start that he doesn't want to waste 300 pages saying what could be said in 20 pages. Fine, but sometimes people try to saying 20 pages what needs to be said in 300. I don't think that's the case here, but I do think he could have said a little bit more about each plug in, maybe doubled what he said about them and come out with a better book. His excuse was that the pages for the different plugins have the info there already. Yes, that's probably true, but the point of getting a book on plugins is so you have all the info on those plugins in one place and don't have to look at all those individual webpages.I think there is enough info here to help, but some of the explanations just weren't enough. I'll keep this for reference, I just wish it was more comprehensive about what's in there.
I'm still working on this book. It is a lot to digest. I like it, because it tells me everything I need to know about WordPress and other blogging info I might need to know. I'll know more about it when I finish reading. It's a lot to remember.
Given that these are all free Wordpress plugins, you could, technically, find them all yourself. But there are thousands of plugins available - some good, some bad, and all with different features. There is definitely something to be said for someone's finding the "cream of the crop" and just telling you what to look for (or at least what to look for FIRST)! Chris has done a fantastic job of selecting some truly excellent plugins for a good range of functions.The handful I'm already familiar with I would definitely agree are "best in class," so I have confidence that all the ones I WASN'T yet familiar with are excellent, too. (I've been blogging with Wordpress for something like 7 years now, am in mastermind groups, etc. and I still found plenty of plugins here I didn't know about, so this is not likely to be the "same old stuff" you already know.)The small cost of this book is DEFINITELY worth it for the hours of work you won't have to do searching for plugins, trying them, testing them, and weeding out the junk.
