8 Best New WordPress Plugins For Your Blog
1. Auto Load Next Post
Remember how CNET, Forbes, and other popular websites work? If you are not sure what I am talking about, then let me tell you, the auto load previous(next) post, so that visitors can continue readers. This simple strategy can improve page views, increase the chance of conversion and also improve CPC for the blogs.
If your theme doesn’t support the auto scroll next post then this plugin can really work. But, it has only one limitation — not all blog themes are supported by the plugin. According to the plugin author, new theme support are added on regular basis. So, you can try it and if your theme is not supported, you can just wait for the update to roll out. Pretty neat and awesome plugin for both new and experienced bloggers.
2. Login Page Styler-Custom login Plugin
Ever wanted to customize your login page to suit your personality? Then, you can finally make changes to the login page with this nifty and awesome small plugin, Login page Styler.
The plugin requires no coding skills and each element of the login page can be customized according to your requirements. This can be quite an amazing feature for websites that uses WordPress default registration for the users. You can also choose to import the site logo using the login page styler.

4. Simple Comment Editing
Commenting is one of the most important parts of any website. But, there are some issues that WordPress doesn’t have any solution by default. One of these problems is the commenting editing option.
By default, the visitors are not allowed to edit their comment and that can lead to bad commenting including spelling and grammar mistake. To overcome this, Simple Comment Editing offers a buffer of 5 mins for the visitor to fix the error. After that, he will not be able to change anything.
Installation of the plugin is simple. Download, install and activate to make it working.
Curating Content is not always a bad thing. As told by many, people or search engine love 100% unique content. But, that’s not really true.

And, this can help you gain invaluable readers and even search engine traffic.
