Reviews

Every review blog should have this

I own a gaming review site, and this is by far one of the most needed things I can imagine. If you’re doing an interview, or post any information on something (Anything) this is an amazing plugin to have. I made an interview with a gaming company about a game, and now every time someone references the questions it auto posts the link after they paste it. This helps get peer to peer traffic, but also back links in several sites, and forums. This is something I’m surprised not a lot of people use. IMO it is one of those most needed plugins.
