Described as the the ultimate toolkit for WordPress, Jetpack is another WordPress Pugin designed to simplify the task of running a business website.
Downloadable as part of the WordPress suite of integrated apps, it unlocks a host of tools to help you design, secure, and grow your site in one bundle.
But the key reason our team love it is the way it links a website with social media.
So what does JetPack do? Well a whole lot, to be frank.
With Jetpack, you can:
- Fully customise your site with free themes, image tools, and rich content.
- Increase your traffic through automatic social sharing, related content, and faster load times.
- Get a safer, stronger site via secure logins and protection from brute force attacks.
All these core features are free. Advanced features like daily backups, spam protection, and SEO tools can also be added with one of three simple and affordable plans.
Now let’s talk about that social sharing, which is one of the major drawcards of the software.
With the Jetpack PlugIn, you can connect all your social media profiles to your website, and automatically publicise any or all of your posts to the social medium of your choosing.
Effectively, that means the moment you hit “Post” your content rolls out to Facebook, Google, Tumblr, LinkedIn, Instagram, Twitter and/or Path. If you’d rather a specific post didn’t go somewhere, you can readily alter the settings right in the dashboard of your Post.
Jetpack also makes it easier to encourage social sharing amongst your readers, allowing you to easily add sharing buttons to your blog so your visitors to share posts with their friends.
Meanwhile, in the background Jetpack monitors your traffic stats, and let’s you know what’s happening on the security front.
A great addition to the WordPress suite
