Welcome To My Website Today I Will Tell You About Social Warfare WordPress Plugin
Well, social media sharing buttons help us drive more (free) traffic while also working as social proof. In the past, I have tried numerous social media sharing plugins & it was always a challenge to find one that worked well both on desktop & mobile.
A few months back, I purchased a popular social media sharing plugin called Social Warfare.
Before that, I always used the free (and sometimes premium) plugins. This was the second time after Monarch that I paid for a premium plugin. Since this plugin was endorsed by many known bloggers from the WordPress community, it gave me enough confidence to put my money behind it.
Well, after using this plugin for almost four months, here is my view on the Social Warfare WordPress plugin.
Features You Should Know
Looking at this plugin’s landing page, it just seems like another sharing buttons plugin for WordPress.
However, there are a few listed features that make this plugin remarkable.
I will talk about common features later. First, let me highlight some of the unique features of this popular plugin. These features are the main deciding factors for purchasing the plugin.
1-Share Count Recovery
Do you know that when you change your URL you also lose the social media share count? This also holds true for every website which is moving from HTTP to HTTPS. Believe it or not, many of us ignore this factor when migrating our blogs to HTTPS protocol.
Losing a high number of social media shares is a big mistake as you lose the trust factor that is shown by the share count.
Well, the Social Warfare plugin keeps your social share counts intact when you switch your permalink or when you move from HTTP to HTTPS protocol. You can enable this feature in the Advanced Settings tab.
Content protection is another great feature that is underlooked by many existing Social Warfare users.
Do you know there are many services like StartAFire that helps social media users hijack another’s content?
Well, that’s beneficial for those who are using such services for sharing links, but for us “webmasters” this is bad and will cause us to lose traffic.
To understand why a content protection feature is a must have, first let’s understand how services like StartAFire work.
Got a better understanding of how others can easily hijack your traffic?
Well, this is where the Social Warfare Content Protection feature comes in handy.
All you need to do is enable the Frame Buster feature & from now on, it will automatically redirect such links to your actual links.
This will not only help you get accurate metrics, it will also improve your bounce rate.
3-Recover Your Tweet Count
A few months back, Twitter stopped showing a share count for its button. Annoying, right?
Well, with this plugin you can again start showing a share count for the Twitter button. This process is pretty easy & I have talked about it in detail over here.
4-Floating Share Button
What’s one of the biggest mistakes newbies make when displaying social media sharing buttons?
If you notice, most bloggers place social media sharing buttons either above or below the content. Nothing wrong with that, but there is another place which is generally more effective in getting more social media shares.
When you add social media sharing buttons that float with content, users still have the option of sharing even if they don’t read until the end.
With Social Warfare, there is an option to enable and disable these floating social media share buttons.
If you are not using this feature yet, do try it out & you may be surprised by the increased number of shares.
5-Show Most Shared Post
Highlighting your most popular posts in the sidebar helps you in many ways:
- It helps you to get more eyeballs & traffic.
- It helps you to get more shares.
- It helps your first-time readers identify the most popular content from your blog.
When you enable the Social Warfare plugin, it also adds a widget that lets you configure & add the “Most Popular Post” widget in your blog’s sidebar or footer (widgetized area).
The options contained within this feature are highly configurable which turns it from a good feature into an outstanding one.
Well, these are the five remarkable features of Social Warfare which make it worth every penny.
Of course, there are many other features
