This post is also part of another sub-series that provides information about the specific WordPress plugins I find to be useful to Inbound Marketing.

To say that the cformsII WordPress plugin helps with your SEO is not really accurate. It will never help you attract your audience to your website.
However, having a large audience arrive at your website is not enough. You need some of them to fill out the form, whereby they express an interest in talking to you about your product or service.
This Contact Us form does not come with most WordPress theme, so more often than not you use a plugin.
An irony of my like of this plugin is this particular website was recently upgraded to the OptimizePress 2.0 theme, which which cformsII is both incompatible and unnecessary. OptimizePress 2.0 is one of the few themes that does have a means of created forms built into the theme.
Having said that, let us assume you’re not using such a theme.
The cformsII plugin is now in the WordPress plugin repository so to obtain it and install it you now have two choices:
- Go to the WordPress plugin page: https://wordpress.org/plugins/cforms2/
- Select the big green Download button on the right side of the page.
- Save the ZIP file somewhere on your computer (do NOT unzip it).
- Then install the plugin by uploading the ZIP file.
- Install the plugin through the plugins tab of your WordPress dashboard.
