53% of marketers say blogging is their top content marketing priority.
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.
The WordPress Applaud plugin – **WP Applaud** 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.
The plugin adds an applaud functionality to your website (similar to Medium)
A user can applaud multiple times
Data is stored instantly without reload using AJAX
You can use the plugin with custom templates
The *applaud* option can be added to a “post”, “page” or archive page
The applaud count is tracked using cookies
You could add a custom title to the *applaud* action
The plugin offers a widget that lists most applauded posts
