Top WordPress Plugins You Should Go For

Individuals who build their blogs and websites on WordPress have endless options when it comes to plugins for enhanced performance.  With WordPress, SEO becomes easier even for those with very little understanding of search engine optimisation.  In addition, plugins can help your site load faster, enhance visitor engagement, and integrate social media amongst other things.  With so many to choose from, how do you really know which to use?

We’ve compiled a list of the top WordPress plugins to help make your decision easier.
Social media is a huge factor in online success today, so which social media WordPress plugins do we recommend?

  • Really Simple Facebook Twitter Share Buttons - This plugin displays many of the popular social media site buttons either above or below your posts, and includes Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Google+.  No registration required, settings menu allows for easy customisation of position and active buttons.
  • JetPack Publicize -  JetPack Publicize makes sharing your posts on several social media networks simultaneously easy – in fact, your posts are shared automatically as soon as you publish them.  Some of the sites include Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr and LinkedIn.

Today more than ever before, search engines favour websites that engage the visitor – and there are even WordPress plugins for that!  A few of our favourites include:

  • Gravity Forms – Gravity Forms makes it simple to build and publish forms in minutes; just select the fields you want, configure your options and you’re ready to embed your form using built-in tools.  Your visitors can contact you easily, with no hassles.
  • Listly – Why write a comment when you can use Listly?  Search engines index the embeddable content, so this plugin offers inherent SEO value.  This is one plugin that is touted as the “most engagement generating” of all.
  • The Slide -  Created by SimpleReach, the Slide helps your readers discover more of your content and actually recommends posts within your site that are related to those they are reading.  Essentially, a widget “slides in” at the bottom of the page as your visitor is reading, recommending related posts or pages.

WordPress SEO plugins enhance your search engine optimisation efforts, something that seems to be becoming more difficult every day with constant changes and trying to “figure out” what Google is up to.  Here are a few we highly recommend:

  • WordPress SEO by Yoast -  Primarily, this plugin helps you write better content, which is essential today considering search engines (namely, Google) love great content that is informative and engages the reader.  This plugin takes care of all of the technical optimisation for you, and checks to ensure you’ve done those other little things we sometimes tend to forget, such as including alt tags for images, post length, etc.
  • Scribe SEO -  Scribe SEO primarily performs three tasks, which are connected with content, link building, and keywords.  This plugin analyses your content, then indicates how it can be improved so that it attracts the search engines.  Building quality links is simplified, and suggestions for additional keywords (based on what you are writing) are also given – meaning more targeted traffic.

These are just a few of the WordPress plugins we recommend – try a few of them out for yourself, you will quickly see the advantages!
