  2. Ringo

    Can I know which one you think is the best?

    • Rijo

      The first and the last one. OnePress Free Social Locker for free version and its pro version for advanced features named as “Social Locker for WordPress”.

      • Carlos Mendoza

        I read that One Press Social actually is very bad on SEO. Do you know a lock I can use just for downloads?

        • AppMarsh

          Hi, Carlos Mendoza, what do you mean bad on SEO ? Can you be more specific ? Thanks

          • Mada Bulman

            I think the question might relate to can the content behind the lock be read by Google? It is something I have asked but don’t get a reply on, have anyone else got any idea?

  3. Parampreet Chanana

    Thanks! I got for my blog : i am thinking to use Social liker or one from onepress. Liked the onepress but trying both… Thanks a lot for solving this plugin issue :)

  9. kent_cool

    So there are no free plugins that do this that you can test drive without the pressure of having to buy within 14 days?

  10. Ola

    This is a great list, I must say.
    But I heard someone commented that OnePress Social is bad for SEO: what would you say about that, Rijo.

  11. Sandeep Likhar

    Thanks Rijo for sharing this. I was searching it for my website to increase traffic.

    Thanks again!

  12. DDonaldson

    Do any of these provide multiple Likes/Follows to unlock?

    Like when you join Twitter, “Follow 5 of these 30 accounts to proceed” type of thing?

  13. Elvis

    Great list. Please what will you recommend in my case.
    I have a page with about 20 items displayed as excerpts and a read more button to the full text (Just like category pages). I need a plugin that will trigger the ‘Share to Unluck or Read More’ when ‘Read more’ is clicked on any of the 20 excerpts. Actually is it possible for all 20 links to be open when the page is shared just once?
    Which plugin is closest to providing this feature?

  14. rohit
