You’re probably aware of the mammoth that powers 30% of the internet. Yes, I’m talking about WordPress. It is a platform that helps you build your own blog, online portfolio or website in the easiest and most convenient way possible. Most of the blogs or websites that you surf daily are powered by WordPress. You may start up with a free WordPress account or you may opt for a premium account with added features. Whatever the case may be, getting your blog/website up and running has never been easier.

WordPress provides an enormous of supply of themes, both free and paid, for you to create the best website possible. All of this at the click of a button.

Apart from the 350+ themes, you may take advantage of the unlimited number of WordPress plugins that are available.

What is a WordPress plugin?

A plugin is a piece of software that helps you perform a specific function without going through the hassle of writing hours and hours of code. All you have to do is install the plugin and it would automatically be integrated with your WordPress site, thus making your job a lot easier.

For the average joe using WordPress for the first time, the very idea of choosing the best possible plugins that might be crucial for the growth of a website may seem like an intimidating job. Thus, I came up with the 5 useful WordPress plugins that you may like.

  1. Yoast SEO

With over 5 million active installations, Yoast SEO by Team Yoast is the most widely adopted SEO plugin that is used by millions of people worldwide.

Yoast SEO helps you attract more traffic from search engines like bing and google and diverts it to your website or web page.

Is your site taking an hour (metaphorically speaking) to load? W3 Total Cache will increase your website performance at least 10 times. With everyone on the internet being in a hurry and people having the attention span of a 2-year-old child, you do not want your website to be slow. W3 Total Cache has an integrated content delivery network (CDN) which helps reduce the page load time, increase visitor time and improves web surfer performance.

  1. VaultPress

Thus, your website is safe from threats like hackers, malware or host-outages. It is made by Automattic, the company behind WordPress.com.

  7. There are a number of WordPress programmers in our company who are discussing WordPress plugins most of the time. I made the mistake of starting my blog with blogger and found it is not a very convenient way to run a blog as there are several limitations. I plan to switch to WP soon.

  8. Great to know about them. But I have a blogger account and very fewer plugins work with blogger. Most of the times, I end up doing the coding myself for achieving the aim. WordPress is a better platform I realized so late.

  9. I use Yoast and jetpack but didn’t know about Vaultpress, will start using it soon. Thanks for sharing.
