Blog tools you need for 2012 will explore what you need for better blogging this year. Proper blog tools are essential in order to give your visitors the complete reader experience they deserve. Blog tools can also increase your earnings by making your blog more attractive, work more efficiently, and preform better in SEO results. I have - and am using the following tools for blogs and find them extremely helpful. Now it's your turn to try them. You can also go here for the best in Blogger tools if you're with Blogger. 

Blog tools you need for 2012


Note that some of these are free blog tools and others are paid ones. Also, some of them require you to sign up to receive them. It's okay to do so because I have. All this means is that you conveniently receive any updates to these blog tools in your inbox. This can be quite helpful, especially in cases where Google changes its policy on practises etc. 

Blog tool 1: Global CommentLuv Site Search Engine

This free blog tool enables you to search for sites that allow your last post to show up in your comment. This is a great and easy way to spread your posts globally. You get a whole lot back for a little bit of time and effort (with no guest posting in sight). The commentluv site is free to use, and if you bookmark anything this month, this should be it. Type in your niche and look for sites similar to yours. Click on them and leave your comments. Did I say that most commentluv enabled sites encourage you to leave comments by giving you do-follow links? This simply means that when you leave a comment, the link to your last post appears with it and this link is do-follow, thus helping your blog rank better on Google.

Blog tool 2: 7 Steps to Complete Search Engine Domination

This blog tool helps you to build a popular blog in less than a year. And yes, it's completely free! I'm still reading it at the moment, and am finding it insightful. You need to go to this page  to get it. Just stick your email address in so it can be sent to you in your inbox. You'll get regular updates, but you can unsubscribe any time you like. I don't think you'll want to do so because the updates are pretty cool and always helpful if you're serious about blogging. This is one free tools for blogs you don't want to miss out on. 

Blog tool 3: Tasty Tuesdays freebies page

I don't know what we would do without Tasty Tuesdays freebies page. No prize for guessing why this is another one of my top, amazing free blog tools. You'd be right in thinking, because it's free. Most of the plugins and tools offered on this page are made for Wordpress sites, but bloggers in general can still make use of a lot of them. There are free sales hosting page. Do you want to sell something online and want your buyers to click on a  professional sales page? Do you want free 'buy this' buttons or 'download this' tabs? 
Then this Tasty Tuesdays freebies page will be something you'll be going back to each week. 

Blog tool 4: CommentLuv premium 

I use this blog tool (or plugin) at my new Wordpress sites, and I think it's doing a fantastic job. CommentLuv encourages people to comment on your site because it gives them a do-follow link (in most cases) back to their last few blog posts. It also keeps spam at bay and gives you a ton of customisation you can do to improve your blog. I think it's the best blog tool I've seen in a long time. You have to buy CommentLuv, but you can then redesign it and do whatever you want with it. Once you purchase it, you can use it on all of your sites - no matter how many you have. Then your blog is added to the comluv search engine where more people are able to find it. This blog tool is the best one around for link building. It's also perfect if you want to increase your readership and decrease your bounce rate. I recommend it whole-heartedly. If you haven't seen my wordpress sites yet. They're here and here. If you buy one blog tool this year, it has to be commentluv. Blogger users can download commentluv by signing up for an account on Intensedebate . Wordpress users - just purchase and instantly download. There are videos to show you how to install it, but it's very straightforward.
