A List of Useful WordPress Plugins That I use

List of useful wordpress plugins

I decided to make a list of plugins I use most often, it can help you decide when you have to decide what plugin to use. The idea is that for each of these plugins in the future I will make a post on how to install and configure them properly and will place a link here. For now I will write only a short description

Of course some plugins like No 2 I use only when I have no alternatives such as WP-CLI.

1. Yoast SEO (FREE) download it from here: https://wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-seo/
For years Yoast, from my point of view dominated the WordPress SEO plugins. Between plugins it’s like “Luke, I’m your Father”..:) What the awesome plugin does? Is useful for SEO, like when your write an article to see keyword density, sitemap, indexing or non-indexing categories, tags, bredcrumb,og’s etc.

2. WP OPTIMIZE (FREE) download it from here: https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-optimize/
Database maintenance, clean up revisions, transitions etc.
3. WP SUPER CACHE (FREE) https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-super-cache/
Cache system improves your site’s loading speed. WP generates dynamic pages this plugin makes them static.
4. Surprisingly I did not find a simple plugin for analytics without ads, without doing anything else beside placing the analytics script in footer. So I did one myself. You can download it from here Google Analytics
5. SNAP social Poster SNAP (FREE & PAID)
This is another useful plugin. Plugin works like this: every time you submit a post it will automatically send it to social networks and other sites. It’s super ok to spread your content. I recommend the paid option, has a lot of stuff in addition to the free one

When I come up with more ideas, I will update the list along the way:)
