I just came across this WordPress plugin today (so I haven’t had time to try it out personally yet), but I thought it sounded so useful that I’d post it on the site for readers to try out – it’s called “Like Gate” and I think it could be a great marketing tool for giving website visitors an incentive to “Like” your articles or webpages (…..thereby giving you free exposure to all their friends on FaceBook without you doing any work, and also improving your SEO and traffic….). So for example you could offer your visitors access to a download link for a free plugin, or ebook or other products in return for them “Liking” your webpage.
Here’s the developers description of the plugin:
“Like Gate allows you to reveal some hidden/secret content when the user likes the article. Therefore increasing the likeness of your articles.
Benefits / Features
- When somebody likes a piece of content this will appear on their Facebook wall for all their friends to see.
- Easy to use

Download: To download the latest version of the plugin or read more please go to the plugin page on WordPress.org website – http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/like-gate/ (the plugin can also be used with AWeber using an iframe – see the plugins FAQs page on WordPress for more details). The plugin appears to be very easy to use, and there’s even a button added to the WYSIWYG editor to help you to easily insert the required syntax, so that’s good for newbies / less technical users.
Perhaps the developer will also add Google +1 in the future too……….
