Drive traffic, build quality followers and improve your website ranking

Social Locker is the most popular content-locking plugin for WordPress in the world with attention-grabbing styles and advanced analytics.

The Social Locker locks your most valuable site content behind a set of social buttons until the visitor likes, shares, +1s or tweets your page. It helps to improve social performance of your website, get more likes/shares, build quality followers and attract more traffic from social networks.

Do you still place social buttons on every page of your website? But visitors don’t like/share your content as often as you would like?

You should give people a reason why they need to click your social buttons. Even if people like your content, site or fanpage, they don’t click the buttons because they don’t worry about you, your benefits or your traffic. It’s not their problem.

But ask people to “pay” with a Like/Tweet/+1 to get access to your content, to get a discount, to download, to read an ending of your article, to watch a video or to view a funny picture. And it will start to work as it should be!

With Social Locker, you can lock anything in your content and automatically unlock it after a visitor has shared your page. All you need to do is select the part of your content you want to lock, click a button and you’re done!

Do you have a post that gets a lot of traffic but you can’t figure out what to do with it? Use Social Locker
to “lock up” content that can be unlocked with a Facebook Like, Tweet, or +1. Great way to accumulate some social metrics.
Jim Wang, microblogger.com

It’s nicely designed and doesn’t look at all obtrusive on your site. If you want to incentivize
your site’s visitors to share your content then this is a fantastic solution.
Tom Ewer, leavingworkbehind.com

One highly awesome feature of this plugin is the ability to see how effective (or ineffective)
it is on your site. The reports are really detailed and can help you identify what content
is being shared as well as on which social networks.

What differences between the free, premium and trial versions?

The free version allows:
– To lock any part of the post content behind the Social Locker that will ask people “to pay” for your content with a tweet, plus one, or a like.
– To set messages for the locker that people will see instead of the content
– To view social impact by using the built-in statistics tools

The premium version allows:
– To do the same things as the free version
– To set a separate URL for each social button.
For example, you can set an URL to like for your Facebook Page (in order to send likes to your Facebook page and make users subscribers), set an URL to tweet for current page and set an URL to plus one for main page in order to increase your site SEO scores.
– To choose one of 3 locker styles (Secrets, Dandyish and Glass) that will be more suitable for your site style.
– To set visibility options for your lockers. For example, you can hide lockers and reveal locked content automatically for registered users.
– To use advanced features like the Countdown Timer, the Close Icon, the Ajax option and more.

The trial version is the exactly same like the premium version but works within 7 days.

good plugin if you can live with the harassment to give a 5 star review

How do you feel about a plugin that every single time you go to your dashboard, it pushes you to give it a 5 star review?

Displaying a big large banner of which you simply can’t get rid. What a pity, the plugin is really good, but the attitude of the developers at harassing the user to give them a 5 star review breaks it all.

Wonderful Piece of Tool

I congratulate the develooper to have made us available such a wonderful service with a a freemium model. Excellent. Keep up the good work!
