Tim very informative. thanks for the information and taking the time to set up this presentation http://thomallen.com Thom Allen Thanks Tim, glad you showed up and hope things go well for you. Josh We use WordPress SEO by Yoast on our blog and we love how easy it is to use and work with. http://thomallen.com Thom Allen Thanks Josh, glad you liked it. And I like Yoast. Gina Allen Great presentation! http://thomallen.com Thom Allen Thanks sweetie. http://twitter.com/Ktdata Ktdata I love using the Repost.Us and Curate.Us plugins to make my posts embeddable on any site. Thanks Thom I learned a bunch from the presentation! http://thomallen.com Thom Allen Thanks, I haven’t heard of those. On my list to check out. Good to see you tonight. And I want to do a KickStart podcast with you. Let’s do it. http://sosimbo.com/ Vissal P. Thanks for the very informative information on plugins. I’m a new inexperienced wordpress user but I currently just started using wordpress seo by yoast. Seems pretty easy so far. Will try all of the other recommended ones tonight. http://thomallen.com Thom Allen Thanks, glad you liked it. I love pretty much anything that is put out by Yoast. http://bscarter.com/ Brandon Carter I’m a big fan of SEO by Yoast. For social sharing I prefer Socialize (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/socialize/) I like that it’s flexible – I can have a ton of buttons and an obnoxious bar that scrolls up and down along with the user, or I can have a simple box at the beginning/end of each post. Thanks for the preso, and good to meet you. http://thomallen.com Thom Allen Thanks for replying and sharing your plugin ideas. Great to meet you tonight. Hope to see more of you. http://twitter.com/jazzs3quence Chris Reynolds I dig DIgg Digg for sharing (get it?) http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/digg-digg/ Also, I’ve written some, so, you know, there’s that. http://profiles.wordpress.org/jazzs3quence and https://github.com/jazzsequence Landing Sites is cool, though it hasn’t been updated in forever: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/landing-sites/ I also really like TPC Memory Usage (which also hasn’t been updated): http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/tpc-memory-usage/ And PressTrends when I want to feel bad about not posting more content: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/presstrends I’ve been using Cart66 + my Products plugin for e-commerce stuff: http://cart66.com https://github.com/jazzsequence/Products http://thomallen.com Thom Allen Sorry about the link in the slides, I messed up the URL.
