Which plugins to investigate?

Which plugins to investigate
1024 x 1024

Given that there are over 150 AI plugins available from WordPress.org I had to decide which of them I’d look at.

  1. The first set would be the top 10 by total downloads.
  2. The second set would be 5 chosen randomly.
  3. The third set would be plugins recommended by others.
  4. The fourth set would be plugins that implement one or more of the required functionalities that we haven’t yet looked at.

Top 10 by total downloads

I got this list from Top 150 AI plugins.

5 randomly chosen plugins

I asked AI to

“Randonly pick 5 integers from the range 10 to 120.” and “Explain why you chose each number”. 

Its reply was

As an AI, I don’t have preferences or reasons for choosing specific numbers. My selections are made randomly. Let’s proceed: 67, 35, 101, 54, 87

Note the typo that it ignored.

These equate to:

but I don’t think I’ll understand Hotspot AI, or GPT Suite AI Content Engine, and Smart Image Crop AI hasn’t been updated for nearly 2 years so I’ll skip those.

BTW: Hotspot AI’s description

基于AI技术的WordPress插件,旨在帮助您分析获取全网热词并帮助构思和写作,提高您网站的整体权重

is in Chinese and translates to

A WordPress plugin based on AI technology, designed to help you analyse and obtain popular keywords across the internet and assist in brainstorming and writing, thereby enhancing the overall ranking of your website

and GPT Suite AI Content Engine’s description is in Spanish

Plugin para WordPress que permite generar y mejorar descripciones automaticas para productos de WooCommerce, con conexión a ChatGPT (OpenAI).

Plugin for WordPress that allows generating and improving automatic descriptions for WooCommerce products, with connection to ChatGPT (OpenAI).
