Social Share Motivator is a flexible and very efficient plugin that helps you to increase the readership of your pages rapidly, getting something back for all those posts that you publish. It makes the content of your blog hardly visible (to visitors only, but accessible as always to search engines), urging your visitors to share it on Facebook, Twitter or Google Plus, if they want unhindered access.
The plugin features responsive social icons for better display on cellphones and tablets.
Social Share Motivator can be (optionally) very aggressive by not including a “Close” button in the Share prompt, forcing your visitors to “share or leave” (although the Escape key still works).
After a visitor shares your page, all of your site becomes available. By activating the option of a “Close” button, you can let your visitors read the current page of your blog (prompts on other pages won’t stop, though).
Social Share Motivator can lock specific posts and / or pages, for example only your download page, leaving the rest of your site easily accessible as always.
Besides this, it can lock the whole site but exclude specific pages or posts. This way you won’t have to shield your contact page, for example.
The plugin lets you define, if you prefer, the title and url of a page that will be shared instead of the currently visited, and includes options to customize the style of the Share prompt (font color, background color, etc).
Social Share Motivator is compatible with the current versions of WordPress and also with multisite MS / MU installations.
Download, locate it from inside your WordPress installation, install and activate, or use the admin pages of WordPress, paste the words Social Share Motivator in the search box, find the plugin in the list of the WordPress search results, and click the “Install” option.
