Scott Jangro added a forum to his blog, and it occurred to me: what a great add-on this plugin can be for WordPress-based affiliate websites! Simple:Press is hassle-free to install, and when properly handled, it can greatly enhance the visitor’s engagement with the affiliate’s website by allowing the former to discuss the topics of interest with other visitors and/or the owner of the website. The topics can cover anything from particular merchant’s coupons that the visitor is looking for, to whatever else relevant to your website. After all, the Web 2.0 era is already in full swing all around us! So why not add a forum to your blog?
