Reviews

December 19, 2016
I have used Blogdog on my real estate website since version 1.0. It has been a great addition to my blog and SEO. Not to mention the huge social media following I have built. I set up Jetpack Publicize with Blogdog and shared every post to all my social media automatically. This plugin is permanent on my website.
