You might have seen a warm Greeting message on most of the WordPress blogs when you visit there from various referring sites. That greeting message is possible by a plugin for WordPress blogs. We don’t have such feature for blogger blogs. But now blogger users can also greet their visitors as Kaushik from Classic Tutorials made it possible for blogger blogs too. He made a WordPress style greet box for blogger blogs and named it as Blogger Greet Box. Have a look at the screenshot below :
This plugin lets you show a different greeting message to your visitors depending on their referer URL.
Suppose a visitor is referred to your blog from Google. It will display a greet message like :
Welcome Googler! If you find this page useful,you might want to Subscribe to RSS Feed to have updates.
These targeted suggestions will help your blog increase exposure, loyal readership, and reader interaction. So all together it should increase your page hits. This plugin will also help to increase your RSS readers.
Features of Blogger Greet Box
- Show a different greeting message to your visitor depending on the referer URL.
- Beautiful set of icons.
- Shows a default greeting message if the user hits the URL directly or comes from a referer which is not specified.
- Ability to remove the message when the user navigates within the same site so we do not keep nagging them with greeting messages.
