Look right above my video in this post.. There you will see this plugin in action. Professional bloggers know that having these targeted suggestions on their blog increases their blog exposure and loyal readership.
This plugin lets you show a different greeting message to your new visitors depending on their referrer url. For example, when a Digg user clicks through from Digg, they will see a message reminding them to digg your post if they like it. Another example, when a visitor clicks through from Twitter, they will see a message suggesting them to twit the post and follow you on Twitter. You can also set a default greeting message for new visitors (not matching any referrer URLs) suggesting them to subscribe to your RSS feed.
You can do this 2 ways. I will explain the easiest way first!
- Log into your WP Blog
- Click on Plugins
- Click on Add New. From this page you will be able to search for the plugin you want.
- In the Search Box type in WP Greet Box, click Search Plugins. It should be the very first plugin on the page.
- Click Install Now.
- Once installed it will show:
Successfully installed the plugin WP Greet Box.
Actions: Activate Plugin | Return to Plugin Installer
Click on Activate Plugin. You’re done!
OR you can do it this way….
Download it here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-greet-box
When you download it, it will be in a zip folder. DO NOT unzip the file.
I download these things to my desktop so I can easily access them, then either delete them or move them into the proper folder later.
- Log into your wordpress blog
- Click on Plugins ( located on the left hand side under Appearance )
- Click on Add New then Upload.
- Browse to where you downloaded the file, click Install Now.
- Once installed, be sure to activate it.
- Run a TEST by googling for one of your articles and click through to your site from google. You should see the greeting message customized for a google visitor. Like I showed you in the video.
*Optional* Go to the Options -> WP Greet Box admin panel to make any customizations.
