Seven Must Have WordPress Plugins For Your Website

Seven WordPress plugins for your website to help you get found on Google and keep your website safe.

Firstly, what is are WordPress plugins? A WordPress plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a wordpress.org website. They extend functionality or add new features for you and your readers experience.

When you should (and shouldn’t) use a WordPress plugin. For plugins to work effectively only have active the ones that you are actively using. Plugins should provide a function they should not just be another shiny object.

To find plugins simply go to your wordpress site dashboard, add plugin and type in the search bar specifically what it is your looking for. It will provide you with a whole list to look at if you are not sure where to start just download the first one activate it have a play. I find if its not easy to use straight off the bat I deactivate it and delete it.

 

Here is a list of seven WordPress plugins I use each day on my blog, these are all free:

Akismet – helps prevent spam comments and trackbacks. It is an advanced hosted anti-spam service which efficiently analyses data to fight spammers
