Here’s what your website gets for FREE with the Jetpack by WordPress.com plugin, Version 1.3.4.
- WordPress.com Stats | Previously a standalone plugin, now part of the powerful repertoire of Jetpack.
“Simple, concise site stats with no additional load on your server.”
- Sharing | Make it easy for your readers to share your posts on their social networks.
“The most super duper sharing tool on the interwebs. Share content with Facebook, Twitter, and many more.”
- Spelling and Grammar | Helps you fight Engrish.
“Improve your spelling, style, and grammar with the After the Deadline Proofreading service.”
- Subscriptions | So your avid readers don’t miss out on your new posts.
“Allow users to subscribe to your posts and comments to receive a notification via email.”
- Gravatar Hovercards | Add some eye candy and extra info in your blog comments.
“Show a pop-up business card of your users’ gravatar profiles in comments.”
- Contact Form | Nifty! Say goodbye to manual coding of cgi scripts and e-mail forms.
“Easily insert a contact form anywhere on your site.”
- WP.me Shortlinks | Muy useful when sharing URLs, especially when restricted to only 140 characters. URL shorteners are nothing new, Tiny URL has been around for 100 years, but WP.me is different in a few ways.
“Enable WP.me-powered shortlinks for all of your Posts and Pages for easier sharing.”
- Shortcode Embeds | Saves you (pasting) a couple of lines of code.
“Easily embed videos and more from sites like YouTube, Vimeo, and SlideShare.”
- Beautiful Math | For the nerds.
“Mark up your posts with the LaTeX markup language (a typesetting system that’s really good at formatting mathematical formulas and equations), perfect for complex mathematical equations and other über-geekery.”
- Extra Sidebar Widgets | My personal favorite feature.
“Easily add images, Twitter updates, and your site’s RSS links to your theme’s sidebar.”
- Enhanced Distribution | Uses WordPress.com Firehose.
“Share your public posts and comments to search engines and other services in real-time.”
- VaultPress (not FREE) | Okay.
“Realtime backup and security scanning for your WordPress site.”
