How to Redirect Visitors after Commenting Karlo December 29, 2013. 0 In order to gather more people to their mailing list a lot of websites will redirect visitors after commenting to a special “thank you” page. Usually this page is created with the purpose of thanking the user for contributing to the community and to encourage them to keep following the development of the website. It is a very popular method among Internet marketing gurus, but how can you implement it on your own blog via WordPress? Well, obviously you will need a third party solution because this isn’t something that WP has implemented by default. Comment Redirect by Yoast You’ve probably heard a lot about the SEO plugin for WordPress by Yoast, but you most likely don’t know that the same author has created a comment redirect plugin as well. Anyway, his Comment Redirect plugin is simple to set-up and use and there isn’t much to configure honestly. Once a user posts a comment for their first time this plugin will redirect them to a WordPress page of your choosing. Please note that this only impacts users who are commenting for the first time because redirecting people who have commented already would just be obnoxious and annoying. First Comment Redirect Aside from the plugin by Yoast we can also recommend the less popular First Comment Redirect plugin which works in a very similar way. An additional feature is that you can redirect users to a custom link and not just to a WordPress page which makes this plugin much better in my opinion. Either way the choice is up to you! In addition it is useful to note that both plugins are very simple and rather well optimized, but they do lack additional features that a lot of people may have been searching for in this article.
