Do you have blogger-brain? We do. We think a lot about our content. We wonder how well it’s doing, what our readers have to say, is it good enough. But, instead of struggling with analytics, we wanted a simple way of tracking our content’s performance. And what better way to do that then a simple, social-media-like feature to get the job done!
Lo, and behold, – the WordPress Applaud plugin – WP Applaud
Our simple plugin adds a cool “clap” feature on your WordPress blog. (Just like Medium)
For every article, a reader can clap to show their appreciation towards the post. The more the claps, the more they like a post. Think of it as an upvote, a like, or a heart, shown —simply, elegantly, and professionally— as a clap.
