You have published a well-written blog post. But now what? Can you drive traffic just because your post is SEO optimized? No, not at all. Like you there are tons of people published the same kind of post. You have to something different to get ranked in the huge crowd.
Now, what makes you stand tall in the crowd. What makes Google rank your post-high in search engine result pages. You guessed it right. It’s your social media presence that makes the difference
In 2019 I think I should not explain to you the importance of social media. Sharing your blog post to social media is a great source of external traffic. Unfortunately, WordPress does not offer much out of the box to share the blog post. So in this article, we will discuss the Top 5 Plugin For WordPress Post Auto Share In Social Media
Please make a note none of the plugins offers a completely free solution. They have the free plugin in the WordPress repository but to explore the full list of features you will have to buy the pro plan.
Alright, let’s get into it and figure out Top 5 Plugin For WordPress Post Auto Share In Social Media?
This is one of the widely used social share plugins. It offers almost all network connection out of the box. You just need to connect to those networks using your user I’d and password and that’s it.
I was also using the same plugin until I discovered a major issue and finally kicked it out. I will talk about that in the cons section.
In the free plan, you can only connect to one account per network. For example, you can connect to only one Facebook account and same is applicable for other networks also. Also, make a note that in the free plan, Blog2Social does not auto-share your blog post. You have to click on share bottom to do the job. But thankfully you can share to all network with a single click.
Overall if you leave that issue I feel this is a great free plugin to share your WordPress post automatically to multiple social media platforms.
- Covers almost all major networks.
- Post can be shared with a single click.
- Adds a canonical tag to all shared post.
- Changes default open graph meta tags
- Posts are not shared automatically but instead, you have to click on the share button.
- Few networks treat posts shared by Blog2Social as spam
You can try the pro plan which rectified all flaws of the free plan. It starts at ?69 per month for a single blog.

Like Blog2Social it offers almost all network connections. Connecting to those is not at all an easy task and you will have to create API keys for all networks. So if you are a newbie and do not know how to create API better to stay away from this plugin.
SNAP needs a premium plan to connect to some networks like Pinterest, Instagram etc. The premium plan cost $49 per year which I feel does not justify against the feature set it offers.
- Easy to use interface
- Offers the connection to major networks.
- Shares post automatically.
- The free plan doesn’t offer a connection to some major networks.
- API key needed for all networks.
- The paid plan is not value for money.
