WP-Zeitgeist

I mumbled a bit about plugins the other day, and would you believe it, here’s another one that’s just been released. Whooami is a regular on the WordPress support forum, but not satisfied with that, she’s just released a nifty plugin.

WP-Zeitgeist presents a cloud thingy that shows what searches are leading visitors to your site. Now I can see this easily enough in my website stats, but this is quicker and easier, and as it shows popular search terms in bigger text, it’s easy to get a feel for what people are looking for. It has the added bonus of making each search term a nice link, which will let you see where Google (or other search engine[1]) actually sent the visitor. I like it so much I’ve added it to the menu bar at the top of the page. Have a look.

If you’re wondering about the name, Google’s own Zeitgeist page explains all…
