WordPress Plugins For Affiliate Marketing

* Techniques for picking the right plugin.

* Google what you are looking for ( function + WordPress plugin )
* Most links will open up in the WordPress repository
* Then here's what I check

* Does the plugin have a large banner graphic. This is a relatively new feature within the plugin directory. It helps me know whether the plugin developers took the time to design something creative
* Next I look at the LAST UPDATED field. I has to have had a revision in the last 6 months for me to consider it
* Then I look at the number of downloads. If it has a lot, 10,000 or more, it's probably legit
* Lastly, I always look to see if it contains screenshots. Lots of plugins don't so it's hard to know which ones are good by seeing what the plugin looks like installed.


* Then I will highlight the plugin name and go back into WordPress and search within WordPress. This makes it much easier to install (you don't have to download, etc.)
