Jetpack Blocks: Tools for Creating Engaging Content

According to Hosting Tribunal, 70 million new posts are published on WordPress blogs alone every month. And though the average post is 1,150 words long, the average time visitors spend on a page is only 16 seconds.

To beat the average, it’s more important than ever to create quality posts that hook website visitors. Engaging, top-notch content requires more than just a text editor — you need tools that allow you to build visual, interactive, multimedia experiences.

The WordPress block editor (and additional Jetpack blocks) give you the power to deliver that without needing to hire a developer or learn a single line of code.

What Does the Jetpack Plugin Do?

One of the greatest benefits of WordPress is its extendability — there’s a plugin for nearly any task you could imagine so you can build a website that accomplishes anything that you want. 

Does this mean you should load up on plugins? No. The more plugins you have, the slower your site loads, which negatively impacts your visitors’ experience. And some plugins can conflict with one another or with your theme, leading to errors or downtime.

That’s why Jetpack is a great option for WordPress sites: with dozens of tools in a single plugin, it provides a ton of functionality without weighing down your site.

Site Search for WooCommerce: What Customers are Looking For

No matter the size of your online store, the number one way to make customers happy — and increase sales — is to help them find exactly what they want, and find it fast. This is where your search box comes in, leading visitors to the information they’re looking for without having to scroll through layers of categories or menus.

While this is good for your customers, it’s also great for you. Visitors are twice as likely to buy a product if they use search to find what they need, so a good search tool means more conversions and more sales. And quality search results engage shoppers across your whole website, giving them access to alternate products and blog posts to further increase the chance that they’ll end up making a purchase.

The key is to find the right search tool, one that provides relevant, filterable, fast results. 

Enter Jetpack Search.
