Traffic is something which everyone wants in order to survive online. So below are some of the plugins which are essential to be on a WordPress site so as to increase traffic.
Social sharing buttons: Starting with sharing. Social sharing plugins are helpful for visitors in sharing a content to social media platform. Without social share buttons, visitor have to manually copy links and images and upload it on their profile. This will make them frustrate because it will consume their precious time and efforts.
For minimizing their time and efforts, sharing buttons are useful.
Another reason is that, social media is a vast platform to get followers and reach. If content makes to any social profile, it will be visible to its followers and if someone reshares it, then it will reach to its followers, hence reaching to new reach of people.
Social commenting: For WordPress websites where people like to interact more in form of comments or discussions, social commenting is necessary. As mentioned above, social media has lots of potential traffic to utilize from.
Most of the internet users are using social media, hence it will get convenient for them to comment and discuss on your site using their social profile.
Social login: Social login helps visitors to sign-in and sign-up using their social media accounts. Easing authentication process will give them time to act upon other elements on website.
Compared to regular registration, social login just requires authorization from social media provider once, which makes authentication process faster afterwards, until and unless someone has not logged out from their social media account.
