Top 10 Plugins for Your WordPress Website

T

WordPress is like a modular machine. You may want to add more functionalities and capabilities by using the right needed plugins to make your website works.

Here are my 10 favourite WordPress plugins.

GOOGLE ANALYTICS DASHBOARD FOR WP (GADWP)

Displays Google Analytics Reports and Real-Time Statistics in your Dashboard. Automatically inserts the tracking code on every page of your website.

GRAVITYFORMS

Quickly create web forms and manage form entries within the WordPress admin. It is my favorite form handling plugins, simple to use and offers tons of integration.

POST-DUPLICATOR

Creates functionality to duplicate any and all post types, including taxonomies & custom fields. I like to repeat things and modify. Sometimes, it is faster to work with the predefined template than to start from nothing.

REALLY SIMPLE SSL

Lightweight plugin without any setup to make your site SSL proof. It is now in 2017 your website should be in SSL mode. Https is now a security standard needed by a majority of the web browsers. It is also good for SEO.

REDIRECTION

In the process of maintaining a website, with lots of content, you might want to use redirection for deleted contents or an updated version of pages.

YOAST SEO

The first option for all-in-one SEO solution for WordPress, including on-page content analysis, XML sitemaps and much more. This plugin is my choice to set up a basic setup for search engine optimization, and my favorite one is Yoast!

WORDFENCE SECURITY

Wordfence Security – Anti-virus, Firewall, and Malware Scan. I use the free version one, and if you want to extend the capability and protection, you might want to have the paid version one. I like the regular updates and notification telling if any of my plugins are obsolete or someone logged in into the website. Good to feel safe.

SLIDER REVOLUTION

Slider Revolution – Premium responsive slider. Personally, I’m not a real fan of the slide, as I like the more minimalistic look of a website that is easy to load. But when it comes to slider needs, I will go for slider revolution.

WPBAKERY PAGE BUILDER

Drag and drop page builder for WordPress. Take full control over your WordPress site, build any layout you can imagine – no programming knowledge required. All you need is imagination.

UPDRAFT

This is the current favorite tool to manage backup and site migrations.
