About Performancing Plugins
Plugins expand a blog’s functionality, and these can turn your blog into just about anything you want and need. Performancing was actually initially created and conceptualized around a plugin (meant for Firefox). To date, we’ve created a plugin (for pMetrics) and we’re on the way to develop a few more. We’ll also be reviewing useful plugins, including popular choices and our favorites.
The team at Performancing is dedicated to developing and reviewing a series of WordPress plugins that will further help bloggers succeed!
pMetrics WordPress Plugin
The pMetrics WordPress Plugin allows you to check blog stats directly from your WordPress Dashboard – if you haven’t already, sign up for pMetrics and then download the plugin and set it up on your blog.
Update: WordPress 2.7+ users, please download the upgraded version of the plugin here.
The cool thing about the new pMetrics WP Plugin is the fact that it is also a demo for new class of WordPress Plugins using basic building blocks that can easily be used to build blogger-friendly plugins.
The general idea has been that we should move beyond the old-art of software updates (deleting, downloading, unzipping, re-uploading). and move to one-click installs and automated plugin management. The old-art is especially problematic when running dozens or hundreds of blogs.
In a nutshell here’s what the pMetrics plugin offers:
- Auto-updates (this option can be toggled on and off) One-click installs for added functionality
- One-click removals (deletes files off the server)
- Blog stats in your WordPress dashboard
- Latest searches display
- pMetrics rank display
- Auto-installation of affiliate banner in sidebar
- Blog sales page with detailed pMetrics statistics
- Feedburner integration
