The Magic of WP Greet Box

I received an email the other day wondering how I inserted the welcome message for certain guests of Andrew Ferguson dot NET.


Would you mind sharing what plug-in you use to do this?


It’s very effective, and I’d love to use it my blog.

It’s called WP Greet Box and you can get it at I just started using it recently and I think it’s pretty spiffy.

The idea is that when people come to my site by clicking on another link (from Google, Facebook, Joe’s BBQ Blog, etc), a little banner will pop up saying, “Hey! I see you came from Google (or Facebook, etc). You should subscribe to my RSS feed!”

The idea is to help gain repeat visitors.

There’s also another similar plugin called Referrer Detector that does basically the same thing. I tried both of them out and I like WP Greet Box better.
