January 27, 2015

Plug-in applications are programs that can easily be installed and used as part of your Web browser. For example, if you manage a WordPress blog you can install a plug-in called Sumome which allows you to create automated forms for your audience to fill in as they move through your web page.

There are so many fantastic plug-ins and apps available now that can assist us in boosting our blog content to make it go viral, it is hard to know which ones are the best! One thing to note before downloading any plug-ins for your blog is that Google crawlers do not like it when there are excessive plug-ins installed. It can make your load time slower amongst other things. So before you upload any think about what it is your require, then search for it.

Here are our top 5 plug-ins to boost blog content and make it go viral.
