My good friend Damian has just released his first plugin and it’s a corker. It goes by the name WP_LinkIt and I think many bloggers will find it useful …
WP_LinkIt as a free simple WordPress plugin to automatically convert text from your posts and pages into links from your blogroll. This makes it easy to add value your site but maximizing links to other sites and keeping them consistent throughout your site.
Now I can see several big uses I will find for this tool
- Without editing old posts I can link to my own articles with accurate anchor text (good SEO)
- For affiliate products I can just state the product name and have it always link to the correct affiliate, even if I change merchants – no more searching through and editing.
- Makes it easier to link to friends, for example I can add Darren to my bloroll links and always have the name link to ProBlogger
As soon as I am back from Norway I will be trying this out.
Great work Damian!
Please add your feedback here in the comments or over at his blog, as he is new to this plugin writing business I am sure he will welcome any comments, good bad or ugly 🙂
