You’ve Been Building Social Proof;
Isn’t It Time You Flaunted It?
ViperChill introduces a new social proof WordPress plugin, called ViperProof, that lets you easily show off the results of your social efforts!
ViperProof is a plugin which allows you to show off various aspects of social proof on your site, in order to increase blog subscribers. Not everyone can show off their feed count, especially if a blog is new, so this plugin allows you to show your:
- Twitter followers
- Facebook fans
- Comment count
- Post count
- Alexa rank
- Google pagerank
- Monthly visitor count
It is available as both a widget and as a short code you can add anywhere in your theme.
Go here to download ViperProof.
Download the plugin from his site and then upload it to your blog.
Activate and you’ll then see a new menu item in the Settings Menu of your WordPress Dashboard.
There add your details. Then go to Appearance -> Widgets and put the widget in place and you’re good to go!
My Changes: I wasn’t real fond of the idea of adding another plugin. I already have server strain due to my plugin count. So I installed the plugin, took a screenshot. Turned the screenshot into a compressed saved image. Edited the image to add a title. Uploaded the image to my Media Library. Used WordPress to make a little HTML code for me and then dropped THAT into a widget. (And then remove plugin)
Okay, so it won’t be fully accurate all the time, but I’d rather change it once a month than bog my server down further.
Its styled very nice by default and definitely compliments to ViperChill for a great addition to the social marketing toolkit!
What out-of-the-ordinary plugins are YOU enjoying to show off social proof? Does this look like something that might help you? I look forward to your feedback!
