2. Royal Slider: Responsive Touch Slider Plugin for Your WordPress Website

It is clean-coded and allows you to implement slideshows consisted of multiple layers as well as video material. It is well-designed and compatible for all small devices with retina displays. It has been tested on Mac, PC, iPad2, iPhone4, HTC Desire, Lumia 920, Surface, and BlackBerry.

3. Social Network Tabs: Social-Sharing Buttons for Every WordPress Website

This plugin is possibly the greatest social sharing WordPress plugin so far. Having your website content shared and followed on various social networks can increase your website traffic. Social Network Tabs covers 17 different social networks and supports 70 different social features. It is extremely responsive and doesn’t make much impact on your page-load time. Aside the broad list of social networks it covers, its responsiveness and the small amount of resources it pulls are what make it quite powerful. This is one of the most popular and top-selling plugins for the last four months.

4. LiveChat: Beautiful Live Chat Plugin for Customer and Sale Support

LiveChat is a beautiful and responsive plugin for your WordPress website. It can be implemented on any WordPress website for customer and sale support, and it has a lot of customization options. It is an open source plugin, and it holds a wide assortment of features. Aside the typography options, you can customize the visual layout of the whole message box. It is fully responsive and an awesome addition to your plugin collection.

5. Frontend Builder: WordPress Content Assembler

This is the freshest plugin launched by Shindiri Studios dating from August 5. The Frontend Builder allows you to design a webpage on your website without having to know advanced HTML or PHP coding. It consists out of 18 elements (shortcodes) with around 20 customization options each. All elements can be placed on a webpage by simply using the basic drag-and-drop method, without having to worry about positioning the element. However, it is better to follow some basic rules in Web design.

The New Rules for Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)

The New Rules for Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) | Social Media | Scoop.it

Search engine optimisation is absolutely vital to positioning your business at the top of Google rankings. Before mid-2011, Google had a simple, predictable algorithm that chose the top positions. This predictability allowed SEO companies to manipulate Google’s system by using a very simple technique – they paid cheap, outsourced workers to create thousands of ‘backlinks’ in other sites, to give the impression that your site was ‘popular’. Google introduced a completely new ranking system designed to rank sites on the basis of ‘authenticity’. Google now rates each site by evaluating the quality and content of the site, and also what people say about your site in social media platforms such as Facebook. Here’s a list of the top rules to get you ranking high on Google:
 - Continual improvement - you need to be pro-active.
 - Technical quality - Google rewards sites that are fast and lightweight.
 - Identify the the main keywords that visitors use to find your site.
 - Focus your marketing.
 - Create compelling headlines.
